Description Bob Gustafson 2004-09-04 12:17:03 EDT
Description of problem:

  I did a 'yum update' this morning and rebooted. When I started up
Mozilla, I noticed that my selected fonts were back to the default.
Also, my bookmarks were back to the default as well.

All those neat web sites that I was meaning to get back too - some
day. Gone.

Unless someone knows where they are squirreled away..

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

  Looking in the Help->About, I see Epiphany 1.3.8 (!!)

  Maybe there is hope. Just need to find plain old Mozilla ?

How reproducible:

  I wish it wasn't reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:

1.  yum update
2.  reboot
3.  login (su; bring up inactive network; exit)
4.  startx
5.  Click on Mozilla icon on task bar
Actual results:

  New browser with reset default preferences

Expected results:

  At least, my old bookmarks.

OK, I guess the Fedora package gods decreed that we should try (test)
the latest Epiphany. OK

To go back to good old Mozilla, the easiest way (provided you find out
how), is to use the

Gnome->Preferences->Preferred Applications-><tab>Web

Ahh - my long lost Bookmarks are there

Works for Me
