Is there a limit to the number of favorites one can establish, beyond which it will drop them all? I've not been attacked this week, but my favorites have all disappeared from 2 days ago. (Yeah, I'm pissed) It's IE9 on W7.
(Solved) - Favorites limit?(5 posts)
There is no limit that I know of - I have several thousand. You can try the following: Do an "Export" of your Favorites from the IE (if that is possible - even if they do not show). Then do a reimport (Import) from that .html Bookmark file. Maybe they will show up.
It turns out (via a call to Microsoft) that an update to IE9 gave 3 tabs to the 'favorites' star on the right side of the toolbar: Favorites; Feeds; History. Clicking the wrong tab (blindly) resulted in a blank column. Clicking the Favorites tab resulted in showing all saved favorites. You see, I don't use the menu toolbar unless I have to, preserving all screen space for display.
Problem solved via Microsoft. I also complained about changes that altered behavior w/o notice. I guess we have to research each KB # to see what's happening..........

Very good point and that is the main reason I don't have updates installed automatically but just to be notified. Scrolling through the new updates will give you a link for a description of the update (like watching paint dry really) but I tend to wait a week or so.
Security updates for MSE should be picked anyway when MSE is run (everyday chaps!!).
Another option on a heavy update is to download in small doses, other than the whole batch. Still a pain but easy to rectify.
