OS 10.4 crash

by hipcrip / January 14, 2010 6:21 AM PST

my macbook pro crashed when i was working with an big video format conversion. this moved all files related to my identity/user profile to a new folder in my apps folder.
result was wiped out/moved my firefox bookmarks, entourage calender data and basically reset a bunch of preferences.
can somebody tell me where i can move folders back to, in an effort to retreieve important info and have firfox/entourage recognize the data files?
