I just signed up for Verizon DSL and the installer erased my many years of well-organized bookmarks. I could tell that something might happen as I ran the installer. I tried to quickly export the bookmarks list, but it was too late and came out blank. I called Verizon tried to complain, tried to find a way to email a complaint, and ended up submitting a complaint to the Better Business Bureau. I feel your pain Matt. Verizon’s problem is still not fix and it’s already April in 2007. Is there anything to do?

Sorry for posting again.

One more question.

Is it ok to rebuild my bookmarks and start using my mail application (I had purchased a domain to start using for mail days before this happened)? Or do I have to worry about Verizon wrecking everything again.

Also, is there anyway to uninstall whatever Verizon put on my computer? Where would I find it? Thanks. You’ve been more help then Verizon by far.

If anyone knows anything else, I’d appreciate the help! Thanks!

This same problem happened to me today, as I just got FIOS. I can’t find out how to get my bookmarks back.

Is the file named something different? Any help you can give will be so appreciated. Thank you!

Thanks

Verizon DSL deleted all my email on my existing Yahoo account when I “linked” it. Fortunately I have a good scheme for backup/forwarding that saves me and Yahoo was just one link in that chain. Thank God for Gmail. Anyway, I would warn anyone about linking their Yahoo email they already have when installing Verizon DSL. If you have to, just create a new account and keep it separate. I admit I am a Mac user in general, but I set up the VDSL using the CD-ROM and a WIndows XP machine because it was for my dad. That went smoothly as far as I can tell — so far…
