3. Here's one pointer
Keep IE handy somewhere... do not delete it for good.

I use Firefux, and recently downloaded a new security patch for it when it prompted me to do so.

I found out a few days later, it did NOT take my bookmarks with it on the upgrade, so they were GONE, POOF!

Luckily I kept IE on my HD, and was able to import all of my old bookmarks again.

It was disconcerting, because I wondered what else could go? I have some published material on hard-to-find sites, and bookmark-importance may vary from person to person.
