When walking through the FF troubleshooting page on missing bookmarks I got to the Library and Restore / Backup Bookmarks and then got the error Unable to Process the Backup File.

Earlier I had tried the Profile change as suggested to "place.sqlite.old and that didn't work.

I did find these files (see screenshot) but I don't know how to use them. Thanks for any help. (I knew I shouldn't have updated!!)

Since an update my bookmarks can´t be found, replaced or restored, it claims the system is in use somewhere else.

Restoring .json bookmarks backup deletes current bookmarks but doesn't import saved ones

Dear experts,

I'm trying to restore a .json bookmarks backup produced on a 60.0 firefox installation. When trying to restore it, I select the file, confirm the replace dialog and press OK. All the existing bookmarks are deleted but no bookmarks are imported. No error message is issued and no bookmarks are imported. No Firefox activity can be seen (no CPU consumption, no network or disk I/O, no increase in RAM used by Firefox). I have even waited 24h just in case, but still does nothing. I do *NOT* receive an "Unable to process backup file message.

I am able to convert the JSON to HTML using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html, but it does not preserve neither the tags nor the folder structure and without the tags to locate the bookmarks they are all but useless.

I'm trying to restore in a laptop running Windows 10 and for the time being, I have no access to any other computer with a different Operating System.

I have tried different Firefox releases including the latest and the 60.3.0esr both 32 and 64 bits editions.

The disk of the PC where the Firefox which produced the backup is broken, so restoring the places.sqlite file or producing another backup or a bookmark export is not an option.

Do you know how can I get this backup restored?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Jon
