Description Peter Ennis 2007-06-15 18:42:20 UTC
Description of problem:

I did a yum upgrade from FC6->FC7.
It worked well - even though the recommendation
to do this is "don't". Good job!
(My system would not boot from a USB External DVD
so I went this route.)

The folder list in Firefox shows:

Release Notes
Fedora Project
Fedora Weekly News
Community Support
Fedora Core 6
Red Hat Magazine

Should the Fedora Core 6 be Fedora 7
and point to the new files?

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

Do you see this problem on a fresh Firefox profile? Use "firefox
-ProfileManager" to create and start a new profile.

Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2007-06-15 19:48:16 UTC
Bookmarks are a one time thing.  Once you have a bookmarks file, they are never
overwritten.  So, you started firefox, got the FC6 bookmarks, and then they stay
the same on upgrading.  Can't really do anything about this...

firefox -ProfileManager
fixes it.

Thanks :)
