This isn’t about books this time.
Yesterday I was feeling the beginning of a stomach virus coming on, the one that half my family has had in the past week. So I was laying in bed, idly browsing the web. I realized I had to log in everywhere I went, which is unusual. If I closed Firefox and reopened it, I had to relog in everywhere again.
My first thought was VIRUS so I ran Malwarebytes and searched the web. While cleaning up what I thought was the problem all my Firefox user data was deleted. All of it – bookmarks, history, logins & passwords, add ons. GONE.
Not even system restore could bring it back.
So now I am rebuilding it all. I’m trying to be positive about this. There were an unworkable number of bookmarks, I had disabled several of the add ons. Everything that I used, I will miss and will find again, resulting in an easier to navigate set of bookmarks & less clutter. Nothing is gone forever from the interwebs
Seriously, I want to cry.
But it did take my mind off of the intestinal distress.
