Ok so I got online this morning and all my firefox saved passwords were deleted along with my bookmarks and settings.

Later I learn my myspace is hacked...posting ads and bullitens like crazy to random friends and videos.

Just kind of weird to have all my browser settings and bookmarks deleted too. Do you think they compromised any personal stuff? I have credit card information stored on sites like newegg and paypal.

probably not. most of the time, myspace finds out almost immediately when your account is hacked and they lock it. just change the password to something you've never used before and it should be fine

Firefox can do crazy things like deleting all my information at random times. So i thought it would be more a coincidence. But i don't know.

well...some sites remember my username and pw...some don't.

It's weird it's just like I completely uninstalled and reinstalled it. At least my plugins are still here.

it was probably nothing, my saved password for myspace got deleted too but that was pretty much it, and Firefox clears your history and bookmarks after a certain amount of days sometimes so thats probably why

sounds like you got a virus that deleted your cookies, bookmarks and possibly by coincidence your myspace got hacked.... you should run a program like ad-aware... its free and works well

Yeah I use both ad-aware and spybot. I hadn't ran it in like a month though, because I'm lazy. I ran it today after what happened, 13 critical objects for ad aware and 22 for spybot. I guess that could be my answer.
