Comment (by mcs):

 Replying to [comment:3 polar bear]:
 > upgrade from Tor 3.6.6 to 4.0 on Windows 8.1 (64bit platform) into
 existing directory also successfully removed all my bookmarks :(
 > Correction: after a 2nd restart of Tor the bookmarks are back (note: PC
 was not restarted since the upgrade)

 That is strange.  From the TB 4.0 announcement:
   This release also features an in-browser updater, and a completely
   bundle directory structure to make this updater possible. This means
 that simply
   extracting a 4.0 Tor Browser over a 3.6.6 Tor Browser will not work.
 So you should not upgrade from 3.6.6 to 4.0 by extracting into the
 existing 3.6.6 directory.  To preserve bookmarks, you should export them
 (as JSON or HTML, from Bookmarks|Show All Bookmarks) and then re-import
 into 4.0.  The good news is that we hope to preserve the directory layout
 for the foreseeable future, and now provide an in-browser updater that
 will preserve settings, bookmarks, etc.
