After the last Firefox update, lots of bookmarks disappeared, and I tried to restore a .jsonlz4 file. On the bookmarks manager window I choose the file, click on the Open button, the notice asking if I want to replace all the bookmarks comes up and I click the OK button.

I wait a while before using the browser again, but as soon as I click anywhere on it, it stops responding. I wait to see if it responds. Sometimes it does (but the same happens again) or a notice for a script comes up and I click on Stop the script. I try to uses the browser and the same happens. I always have to end the process on the window or with Windows Task Manager.

I restart Firefox and notice that many bookmarks are back, but far from being all. Some are also repeated, and others on other folders and many on a different order (!). Then I try to restore the bookmarks on safe mode, but always getting the same result.

What is wrong, and how can I restore the bookmarks, please?
