During a recent reovery process my bookmarks were lost. Now they're encrypted and I'm not able toaccess them, How do I get them back??
My computer wen through a recent recovery process. My bookmarks were supposed o be safe. However, they were lost and appear now as encrypted by Firefox. How can I get Firefox to allow me to recover my encrypted bookmarks?

I'm sorry to hear your bookmarks disappearing on your Firefox web browser.
Have you tried checking to see if a new Profile was created? It might be worth looking into.
You could switch back by typing about:profiles in the address bar - > under your default profile click Set as default profile
If your recovery process involved refreshing Firefox there may be a Old Firefox Data saved on your desktop.
Hi myohoman1, what do you mean by:
Now they're encrypted and I'm not able toaccess them
If you have a bookmark backup file with a name like
they are definitely compressed but probably not encrypted. These .jsonlz4 files are meant to be restored to Firefox using the steps in the following article:
However, a Restore completely replaces your current set of bookmarks. If you want to preserve what you have or see the contents first, I have a converter page which generates the HTML export format from the file:
An HTML export file is brought into Firefox using the Import feature:
An Import adds to your current bookmarks, it doesn't completely replace them.
