Default What happened to my Bookmarks??

All of a sudden this last week, none of my bookmarks show when I click on it on my Yahoo homepage. All it shows is:
add bookmark
edit bookmarks
import bookmarks
...and they are not highlighted so I can't even click on those. I had a loooong list since late '02 -- 100's, and they are gone!!! I used it three times just over week ago & all was fine. How can they just disappear? Anyone know what coulda happened? There's stuff there I could never find again. This is as bad or worse than losing a cell phone or phone book.
Help!

I donot see how they would just be gone. The only way I think is if someone deleated them off your computer. Thats very strange that they would just be gone. I never heard of that before.
Good luck

Are these stored in your Yahoo account or on your computer via the browser? Which browser are you using (Internet Explorer, Firefox etc)?

Yeah, that's what I was going to ask. It's possible that it was an update to your browser or a Yahoo update that was incompatible with your browser. Try seeing if you can update your browser and maybe they'll come back (hopefully).

I do all my bookmarks through the browser and they remain on there after updates each time...I've lost them a couple times before (1 - when my hard drive crashed and 2 - when I left for college and my mother decided I was 'GONE' and she was taking over the computer bookmarks for her 3-4 bookmarks (seriously) and deleted probably 30 of mine). Losing bookmarks is definitely a very sad day, so I feel ya on that!

My browser is yahoo & the 'bookmarks' are on top next to 'file & edit'. I used to have aol & when I switched to sbc (now att), the bookmarks were all there. I could click on one that showed all my old aol bookmarks too.
yahoo keeps telling me to update to the "all new yahoo" (diff homepage I guess) but I always click on "later". Maybe they are punishing me LOL. Wants me to get rid of my current one & download/update new one. I hate to download anything lately cuz my memory is low & puter slow. I'm on Mike's puter now & I have some bookmarks here including my old aol bookmarks w/ hundreds alone there. Can't remember how I got them here, but even that doesn't show on my puter. (his puter is IE).
Maybe if I update to the "all new yahoo" they'll come back (?) This is just so weird.

Sandy, I've had similar problems with the "new yahoo" aka the "crappy/difficult/ihateit yahoo homepage" etc. When they decided to permanently eliminate their old page, I was going to permanently eliminate them even though they've been my homepage for over 10years! But since I have six old established email accts with them, it's been difficult to start all over again with another new homepage. They didn't even blink when I wrote them numerous emails saying that they were "communists" for not allowing people to continue to have and use the older simpler page! ;-)

Wow, yahoo has its own browser?? Thought it was just the search engine/email. I know that I have a toolbar on my browser with some yahoo features but was ignorant to the fact that they had an entire browser.

My best advice is to use this opportunity to ditch that browser and switch to Mozilla Firefox. This is the best browser I've seen out there for compatibility with websites/programs/toolbars and it has a lot of neat user-friendly features that help you surf the internet fast and more effectively. And trust me, in general operation, MF is significantly faster than IE for some reason. Plus it has superior defense against pop-ups. All around, probably a lot better than what you're using and it's free, so what do you have to lose? You can still have a yahoo toolbar even (which lets you know instantly when you have email and allows you to click a button on the toolbar to be redirected to your inbox), but I would suggest using the bookmark area the browser provides rather than the ones the Yahoo toolbar has.

I tried downloading Firefox couple years ago & a pop up said I don't I don't have enough space for it. I know, I know...get a new puter. I can't afford one. I will try the master account, which is me at att.net & see what happens there...haven't been there in a few years. Thanks anyway. Maybe somehow it'll just reappear.

Sorry didn't see this until now...

Its not you Patty its yahoo...

You need to get rid of all the programs on your computer that you don't use. Then get an external drive the smaller ones are very inexpensive compared to getting a new computer and all your pictures, music, video's need to be stored on that and deleted from your computer to free up hard drive space.

Then make the switch to firefox. There is a great add on called Xmarks and its saves all your bookmarks online and you can sync it with different computers as well...


I would start a gmail account and slowly make the transition to their email/homepage system as one of these years down the road there won't be a yahoo anymore.

Thanks Martin, I'll have to print out what you said & show it to a big box puter store like Best Buy (I hate that place) cuz I don't understand 'external drive' & 'Xmarks' LOL. Should I take the tower in w/ me? I did remove several programs w/ that 'uninstaller' you showed me earlier. Thanks again

Yeah, that's what I was thinking...clear out the programs you don't use (control panel>>add/remove programs) and delete any temp files you can find, .exe files for things you already have installed, etc. Shouldn't take much space for firefox.

BTW, the newest version of firefox (3.6) is awesome! You can choose from 3,000 different fancy designs to make it look purdy. Check mine out...looks like a forest up in huuur! Plus firefox has had the tabs forever....and more recently has the capability of drag/drop reordering of them in the list. Very helpful. And yeah...still have my yahoo toolbar too!

get whatever one they have in the store that is cheapest.

Sounds kinda scary LOL. Yes, been using all 3 of those downloads you gave me - including Glary. And, I still have your ph #. I will stop at best buy & get that hard drive - reviews seem to be pretty good. Been busy lately - Mike is being a slave-driver LOL, but will try to get there this week. Hey, can't thank you enough.
