    What!? Don't you have a backup procedure in place - either full system and/or selected files? If not, you're probably out of luck. You will (should) find in your FF profile folder a duplicate of your bookmarks.html file with a name of bookmarks.bak. Unfortunately, that file gets created at least every time you start your browser so it's probably also "bad."

    Or, in the case of Firefox 1.5; in the profile folder there is a backup folder: bookmarkbackups. It will hold the 5 most recent backups.

    See MozillaZine:
