All my bookmarks are missing from my firefox browser, Firefox updated or something then I have checked my bookmarks and they are all gone the only backup firefox has of these is on the 12th May. Why has this happened as I had important stuff saved on my bookmarks and I dont understand how they could all disappear, I have followed all the firefox recommendations for restoring these and none of them help at all as they seemed to have just vanished please help, thanks

Let's start with;

[v57+] Places Maintenance is built into Firefox.

Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.

You will find Places Database near the bottom. Press the Verify Integrity button.


Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox?

Did you try to reboot the computer a few times?


Are there any bookmark backups available in the bookmarkbackups folder?

Hi

Thank you for the replies and the help I appreciate it. The first thing I checked was backup & restore and the only 2 back ups are one on the 12th and one on the 15th. Any new favourites that I have added are there but any before the 12th are gone. I tried to search for "old firefox" on my pc but I cant find anything but I try a manual search.

I did the Verify Integrity and it says, does this say anything that would help me. I seen on the info below it says 34 bookmarks but I only count 11 and these 11 are the new ones I have saved in past couple days and when I go into Import & Backup there are only 11, thanks again.
