The Supreme Court Killed My Browser

I started using Firefox because it seemed to be a better, more user friendly browser not long ago. Then, in the middle of a long post while I was trying to download a document from the Supreme Court website, everything crashed. I lost the post AND my entire list of bookmarks! Many of the blogs I had there I have not linked to on the blogroll, so if you wonder why I haven't visited your blog lately... well, that's why.

My one and only real criticism of Firefox is the bookmarks file system. I recommend installing the firefox bookmark backup plugin.

I lost all of my bookmarks once and that was enough for me! Hopefully they will include this as a feature in future releases. It is the only area I think that IE might be better in (using actual files for shortcuts makes it easier to reconstruct in the event of data failure - though there remain risks inherent in using shortcuts in general for web-based content, hence Firefox's solution).
