Bug Description

Binary package hint: epiphany-browser

When the computer crashes (i.e. out of power when watching DVD on notebook) with an open Epiphany browser, all bookmars are reset to those, Ubuntu came with (using 10.04, but same behaviour in 9.10) (Debian, Debian Bug tracking system, …) and all created bookmarks are gone. Furthermore the configuration of the toolbar is lost and reset as well.

Ubuntu version: 10.04 LTS
