After restarting my computer, I got a new FF web page and ALL my bookmarks as well as history have been deleted.

How do I get them ALL back?

I have tried every solution on the Mozilla Help section - I cant do a Restore I have a very old version of backups - 2016

The online help system is going around and around in circles not giving any solutions. 4 hours of trying to sort this out is ridculous.

I really do not want to have to move to Chrome, I far prefer Mozilla, but I can not afford to loose more time sorting this problem out. If not resolved here, I will reluctantly have to restart all my bookmarks in Chrome.

I need all my bookmarks - some are work related.

Please Help

Is this what you did?

Open the Bookmarks Manager; Press the Alt or F10 key to bring up the toolbar, and select Bookmarks. Hot key is <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> B.

Once the window is open, at the top of the page, press the button labeled Import and Backup. Select Import Bookmarks From HTML.

As there are no more responses to my question, I take it that there is no solution.

Next question, How do I prevent this from happening again (other than daily backups)?

You need to right-click places.sqlite in Windows Explorer.

You can check in Windows Explorer if there is a previous version of the places.sqlite file available or files in the bookmarkbackups folder.

You either need an older copy of places.sqlite or a backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

Alternatively you can look at this utility to browse System Restore points.

Hi, I am back again.

Sure as squirrels eat nuts, FF did an automatic update and all my bookmarks disappeared again.

I have periodically been saving my bookmarks in html - see screenshot I can open this and see all the bookmarks are there.

When I import the most recent saved bookmarks, but nothing is being imported. I select the file, click Open - see screenshot Get blank screen and nothing is imported back to FF - see screenshot.

Am I doing something wrong?

2. Why is FF doing an automatic update when I have elected to be notified when an update is required?

Hi Fred,

I did what you posted above.

I eventually found (duplicates) of my bookmarks in a different location to usual. But the tool bar pages have to be done manually.

Many thanks
