I have 2 windows 10 systems which I thought I might try sync to manage logins and bookmarks.

Initially it all worked smoothly then duplicate bookmarks started appearing, folders also duplicated and the only way to restore things was to revert to a saved version. I turned off sync for bookmarks but still changes appear almost every time I log into either device.

I am tempted to remove sync unless someone can suggest a solution.

I lost my latest bookmarks and it's been mixed with different bookmarks with the same account, Here's the thing: I use the same account 116****@qq.com, which is a Chinese account. I usually use the global sync, but maybe 2yrs ago I used local sync for firefox of chinese version on Android for a while, which has different bookmarks. But I have adjust to global sync for a long time and have always use it now. Today the bookmarks became mixed. My most recent and old ones, and some of my latest bookmark folders have lost.

How can I get back to my latest bookmarks on PC, win10?

Please anyone who knows about this help. Please reply or contact me with [email address] Many many thanks ahead.

Hey all! I know this question has been asked before, so sorry for asking again. I want to know if there is a way I can manually change the little icons that appear next to your bookmarks on your toolbar. There's a few that all have the same icon that I'd like to change. That way I can differentiate them at a glance, plus I'd just like the option to customize them in general. I was searching for an answer to this, and a few people recommended an add-on/extension, however the posts were so old, the links were dead. I'm not sure if the add-ons still exist, but I figured I'd ask and see if anyone knew what they were. Most of the posts regarding this question seemed to be quite. That's why I thought I might ask again and see if anything has changed. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I'd love to hear them. Even if it's an "unofficial" solution. Thanks a bunch, and stay safe!!!

I rebooted my computer and all my bookmarks disappeared. I looked for instructions on line but they don't apply to my computer. It says to click on library then bookmarks then restore . I do not have those options. there is no restore button. Why don't they fix this problem. I have wasted an hour and still don't have my book marks back. I have logged in twice.

Hi everyone. When I opened Mozilla, I found out that all my bookmarks disappeared. Yesterday they were here, but now not anymore...how is it possible? I followed all the info to recover my bookmarks but I couldn't. It's like everything disappeared, I've never done a backup of my bookmarks or anything else so I don't know if I lost them for ever. Attached there's a screenshot of what appears. Please help me because I had over 300 bookmarks, and now I can't find one!

I opened firefox and it said that I had an older version and that i should create a new profile online so i did that and logged in. I use firefox everyday and had never seen this message before. I created the new profile and logged in and all my bookmarks are gone. I went to about:profiles and it shows 2 profiles but only the ones that i created yesterday. Oddly, i don't ever remember creating a profile before this. I would just open up firefox and it worked like a normal browser. Now that I have a profile the bookmarks aren't there. Thanks for your help.

Recently I have been having issues with my laptop. So, I decided to set my Windows 10 laptop back to factory settings. After the successful factory settings, I downloaded the latest version of Firefox and tried logging into my Firefox account. For some odd reason, it wouldn't recognize my login username and password. So, I tried to reset my password. After resetting my password, I managed to log into my Firefox account but all my bookmarks disappeared. I tried to restore but all I see is today's date and no other previous restore (see screenshot).

I am extremely exhausted trying to figure out a way to get back my bookmarks as it has many years of bookmarks that I need to use back.

I would appreciate any help on this matter.

What is this about? How do these relate to a copy/paste action? I have not been able to find documentation on this.
