Hi, is it possible to know how to properly restore a bookmarks session via jsonlz4 file? Firefox lost all of my bookmarks and when trying to restore them using the recovery session with the last jsonlz4 file the process simply does not end, starts but after couple hours is still running, with continuos warnings of scripts busy, or stopped responding. Is there a way to do it properly? Or a tool to convert the compressed jsonlz4 to json, maybe html. Thank you.

Several times I have lost bookmarks. When I follow the Restore Backups instructions I am presented with a list of 15 files to choose from with about 3000 items apiece (which sounds about right), but they are all from early December of last year - eleven months ago. Additionally, when I try to manually command a backup or to export as .html the process APPEARS to work, i.e., no error messages, but no file is created.

I have restored the hard drive from an image twice in the last year, but would expect that to just lose the backups made between the image file date and the date it was reloaded, and Firefox would continue to make backups as normal, so I doubt that is a factor.

As a stop-gap I have created a macro to save the various Places files in a rolling ten item queue, but it would be nice to get the system to work as it is supposed to.

Thanks for any assistance!

Updated firefox and now all my bookmarks are being saved to other bookmarks. This is not helpful, because I either want it in my regular bookmarks or in a folder I will create later. Now, it's an added step and some place else that I'm forced to look at.

How to remove other bookmarks?'

If I try to drag and drop a new bookmark onto the bookmark icon (the star with the line under it), it USED to open up Bookmarks and I could place the new bookmark where ever. That no longer works.

I CAN drag/drop into a folder on the menu bar but not into bookmarks directly.

All my Bookmarks and Tabs have vanished after the Firefox 82.0.3 update yesterday. Related? Searching for hours, including Firefox site and cannot find solution. I noticed 'Restore Previous Session' was recommended as a 'fix' at some links. Mine is grayed out...if that matters. I have VERY important bookmarks, including links related to Hurricane Sally destruction to my home. PLEASE HELP! I'm not very computer savvy, so 'instructions for dummies' would be helpful. PS...I was able to bookmark this page, but at least 100 bookmarks vanished. Tabs & Bookmarks are fine with Safari and Chrome. Unfortunately, I rarely used those and did not migrate most Bookmarks to them. Lesson learned. Thanks in advance John

I have Firefox 22 and use Sidebar Bookmark Selector 3.0. When I now hover over a link in my bookmarks it is supposed to display the info for that link. But now it displays an alltigether different link over it. I believe this started when I upgraded to FF 22. It works correctly in Safemode, so I have gone through all the steps that FF suggested. The only step I did not do was disable NoScript, because it was the only extension that when I went to disable it gave a non computer guy like me an extra meassge of why you shouldn't disable it. I understand the concerns of disabling it, but just incase it was one of those programs where I have to "reteach" it everything it needs to block or not block, I usually have no idea what I'm doing with those so I just decided to leave it enabled. If by chance it was not Noscript causing the problem, that means I did everything on FF's checklist, but none of them worked, Where am I supposed to go from there? Again, everything works fine in Safemode. Also, if this question should be in a different category, please let me know. Thanks

All of a sudden (and around the last update, if memory serves, but I'm not entirely sure it exactly coincides with that) my bookmarks toolbar no longer shows any bookmarks. Instead there is a "Bookmarks" button (icon: white star on gray rectangle background) on the left hand side of the bookmarks toolbar. When I click that button, a menu opens in which all my bookmarks are present as usual, including a "Bookmarks Toolbar" folder with the usual bookmarks still in it. In other words, the organization of my bookmarks is unchanged and they're all still there, but the bookmarks toolbar no longer shows the bookmarks in the "Bookmarks Toolbar" folder in my bookmarks menu.

Trying to drag bookmarks back onto the bookmarks folder doesn't work either.

Suggestions, anyone?

Hi, I have been searching through the internet for a resolution, but each mention of an add-on or such for firefox leads to no-longer working pages it seems.

When I visit a website that has,for example, a list of 12 tips on a subject, (like 12 ways to annoy your cat ;)), it might show he first one, then i am supposed to click the forward arrow to see the next tip. However, i often find that it will not advance, unless i first refresh the page, then re-click the arrow, every single timei want to advance!

Is there a fix for this, or a good, updated add-on to auto-refresh?

Thanks for any help!

Bookmarks sync problems: Bookmarks keep rearranging themselves in the bookmarks toolbar, and do not sync completely on Windows and Android.

My setup

I'm using Firefox 47.0 on Fedora (64-bit GNU/Linux) with GNOME shell, and on Windows 10 (64-bit). I also have Firefox Sync on an Android tablet, but I don't do as much web browsing on my tablet, so I haven't needed to look at the bookmarks there...


The problem(s)

On Fedora, the bookmarks in the Firefox bookmarks toolbar rearrange themselves. The bookmarks in one folder shift from the bottom to the top, and some bookmarks in the toolbar shift from left to right. I arrange my bookmarks by loose priority, so this annoying. Whenever I notice the bookmarks being out of order, I drag them back to where they were, but they always move themselves again later. This has been an ongoing issue for a couple months; I've only seriously attempted to troubleshoot the issue over the past week or so, and I'm not having any luck.

I don't think I've ever noticed the bookmarks moving themselves in the middle of a session, so I believe it's actually happening when I close or launch Firefox. However, reproducing this issue has been tricky, since the bookmarks do not *always* shuffle themselves every time I launch Firefox. Depending on how often I open/close the application, I may notice the bookmarks moving themselves once every other day, or a couple times in a single day.

This may be a separate issue, but I noticed it around the same time: On Windows 10, my bookmarks do not sync at all. There three or four bookmarks in the toolbar, but these do not get updated when I change them on my Linux machine, and none of the other bookmarks have synced to the Windows machine.


Things that I've already tried

I've tried reverting my bookmarks to a recent automatic backup (Library > Import and Backup > Restore). No change.

I've tried disabling all addons. No change.

I tried refreshing Firefox, to "reset to factory defaults". No change.

I tried deleting the file `xulstore.json` in my Firefox profile. No change.

I tried installing and running the Places Maintenance extension. I didn't entirely understand all the text output it generated while running, but I don't think it found any real errors. Anyway, no change.

I tried backing up my exports to a JSON file, then closing Firefox, then deleting the places.sqlite file, then restarting Firefox, and importing the bookmarks JSON file. No change.

Bookmarks still rearrange themselves on Linux and do not sync at all on Windows  :(

The title should explain it sufficiently, but the behavior that I expected was for Firefox to automatically pull favicons from websites or at least allow that to be done manually. It appears that this does not happen. Has this been a feature that was removed, a bug, something on my computer, or something else? Basic Google searches didn't reveal much but a couple of addons that can do this process manually, but I am hoping to avoid this (and some of them no longer work).

Visiting websites doesn't cause the favicons to reload, and deleting and readding the bookmark doesn't work.

Yes, the addresses for the bookmarks are correct including the http(s):// prefix

Attached full info about my browser, but it's on Win 10 running Firefox 53.0.3 64 bit version with some extensions.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

There is right now literally no obvious way to bookmark a page. This is a serious flaw in the browser.

The Forum instructions say to restore it from "Customize." But it's not there, just the bookmark menu button, which does not allow you to bookmark a page. It then says restore defaults. That doesn't restore the star either. Does anyone know how to get it back once it's gone? It should not be so difficult that I can't figure it out.
