I'm currently using Firefox version 3.6 on a Windows 7 Home Premium Edition. One of my favorite extensions is called "Clippings" and I am on version 3.1.1. The only major problem with this extension is that, unless I am missing it, there is no way to save, edit, or delete anything you do, for any of the clippings.
Several times in the past I wound up accidentally inserting a few characters into a clipping that was 100 lines of text and, poof - all the text lines were gone leaving only the few characters I put in. When this happened, the only option was to go back to the backup copy and reload it.
Then, about six months ago I started using another one of the Firefox extensions called "FEBE" which performs automatic backups of a number of things on Firefox, including the extensions. It has saved my butt several times.
However, this time, there is a real mystery. Today, April 3, I wound up again accidentally deleting a very long clipping. I went back to FEBE, found that the last backup for Clippings was from April 1. I performed the typical "restore activity" from within FEBE, thinking this would restore everything to the way it was on April 1. After the restore, I shut down and reopened Firefox, as is required.
Imagine my disappointment upon completing the backup, when I went to the clipping that I had accidentally overwritten, only to find the same overwritten clipping, consisting of only a few characters. How could a backup from April 1 have a clipping that was changed on April 3?
At this point I have no idea what to do. Does anyone have any thoughts?
