So, let me understand this all three web browsers aren't able to remember your bookmarks. Have you tried updating them?

They are all updated/just installed.

Initially the problem was with opera, so i said f it and installed ff yesterday. everything was fine until this evening, i opened up ff and my homepage was reset to Mozilla default and all of my bookmarks were gone.

That is odd. Have you scanned for viruses or trojans?

That's where I would start, along with a spyware scan. Unless your hard drive is dying rapidly, I'm willing to bet it's something malicious.

Did you install any new programs before this problem popped up?

Weird. I thought maybe it had something to do with the private data, but there are no options to clear bookmarks.

Well I'll be. . .
