Firefox didn't keep track of my bookmarks in place.sqlite

Posted

Hi,

I've recently reinstalled my windows 10 and I forgot to manually backup my bookmarks.

When I checked online, I saw that Firefox stored every bookmarks added in places.sqlite. I checked the document and it said that the last modification was recently.

When I use this document to restore my bookmarks, I only get them from 3 years ago. Anything between 2016 and now isn't stored in it....

Is there any solution for me to recover my lost boomarks?

Firefox automatically makes backups of the bookmarks. These are stored in the bookmarkbackups folder.

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 Restore. From the list, pick the file you want and click it.

The backups are stored in a jsonlz4 file named something like this; bookmarks-2016-06-29_1424_enD1GTH ya0JmicnYWg4V4g==.jsonlz4

In this example; 2016-06-29 = date created, 1424 = number of entries.
