Error message and bookmark file

Recommended Posts

On a number of occasions recently when I've booted up from sleep mode in the morning i get an error message along the lines that Firefox cannot access my bookmark file as it's being used by another programmer. This is often caused by anti virus software. In that department I use AVG. It appears to be quite easily solved by restarting but I just wonder if there is a simple way of stopping this in case this diesn't work. Thanks

Looks like restarting is one of the Mozilla recommended solutions, but they also list one other if restarting doesn't work: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

Basically it boils down to recreating a database; this process will lose your browsing history, but will maintain your bookmarks from the most recent automatically-kept backup.
