All this talk of syncing & duplicate bookmarks doesn't explain what happened during the last update of Firefox Quantum (64-bit). I don't have multiple devices, so where are all these bookmarks & empty duplicate folders coming from. There are a bunch of bookmarks outside of the folders they were in AND inside the folders they're in. What the heck happened? Can I go back to the previous version of Firefox? This is a mess, and I really don't have time to read through a gazillion links trying to rectify this issue. I've restored my bookmarks to before this latest update occurred, and it seems to be making things worse. Mozilla needs to post BIG FAT FLAGS when they make a major change to this browser. I would've never let this update install, had I known what it was going to do.
Because I embed folders inside of folders, all the loose ones used to belong inside of folders, and some didn't. Now, I have tons of them where I can't find which folder they were in, because they were embedded. This is really bad, whatever Firefox has done.
Again, 1 computer, 1 device ... WHAT IS IT DOING or syncing to? I'm not using some Add-on to fix this, because an Add-on didn't break it; the last update did! I do have Add-ons, but unless this version is incompatible with them, I have no clue. None of them are bookmark Add-ons anyway. I shan't Share Data this time, because I really don't want people poking around & pointing fingers at my Add-ons. I'd rather be shown how to go back to the previous version, than keep messing around with incompatibilities when Firefox keeps changing. Developers can't keep up with all these updates that come through every other month (it seems). Please and thank you.
in bookmarks history the months are in Islamic calendar and messing up messages. H-2 change back to Gregorian calendar?

In show all bookmarks - history- the months are designated in Farsi where it is 1397. This is affecting messages and has also shown up in Thuderbird. But I think I have stumbled on to the source of the problem. How can I get bookmarks history back in a Gregorian Calendar? Could this be effecting other things or have another source that is affecting bookmarks?

I used to be able to file bookmarks by select shift select - so I could drag & drop into folders. Mac 0S 10.11.6 After upgrade to mojave (on a new machine) when I select - it opens the page.
Am I missing something in settings?
NOTE: On my new mac (2015 Mac Book PRO) I am able to drag and drop on my desktop & on other programs - Mail for instance - However, in Firefox I have to select one bookmark at a time to drag it. I have 100's to file HELP!
Mac OS Mojave 10.14.3 current update as of yesterday Maybe the migration from my old Mac Book to the new one missed something. I thought the same setting would follow the migration.

I'm a little angry right now because I have lost bookmarks of all my life and I need your help to repair it please? I don't know why but somehow, Firefox which I use for years ; (Thx by the way) ; corrupted my data on the run...? I started Firefox again but, no extension, no bookmarks, etc.. I Have kept a backup of all this FF profile, just in case.
My 1st step was to try to get a new profile a import my previous data from Firefox Sync - but somehow , I'm angry at myself again for not understanding how FF Sync work, no data from FFSync updated my data - It stayed like this for a long time , like a new profile without data (I used Xmarks before so I thought it was replacing it).
2nd step: I tried to load all bookmarks-xxx.jsonlz4 located in the bookmarkbackups folder from the FF bookmarks tools (Import / export ; etc). FF seems to see all the bookmarks but can't load them. What is really important here is that FF backed up files for like a month and even my oldest file is unusable : bookmarks-2019-01-19-xxx.jsonlz4 !!
3rd step: I tried to get my data back from FF files, in bookmarks files like bookmarks-2019-01-19-xxx.jsonlz4 from the bookmarkbackups folder. Someone pointed me to use the https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html website but all the jsonlz4 files in the bookmarkbackups folder seems corrupted (or the format of files changed and his tool may need to be updated ?)
Example : File name: bookmarks-2019-01-19_2392_mKZssqkWMZt+Mqt-HOi68A==.jsonlz4; Size: 283114; last modified 18/01/2019 à 12:38:42 (failed JSON parsing: SyntaxError: Unexpected token in JSON at position 21928) Note: To try a different file, reload this page Can't seem to acces the step 2 part even after waiting longer
4th step: tried to get old Backup of my FF Profiles with Windows 10 Shadow Copy System, "Shadow Explorer" or "System Restore Explorer" Found 3 backup wich I restored also, all bookmarks seems to get the same problem. I think I'll need to look in to this because It's not official Windows tools, but I'm really disapointed here.. I think I'll put them on md5sum tools to compare them for a start.
5th step : tried to repair my <places.sqlite> a (80MB files) which I found renamed to sqlite.corrupt. With the help of http://www.froebe.net/blog/2015/05/27/error-sqlite-database-is-malformed-solved/ , all I can get is a empty database at the end, but Im not a sqlite expert so if anyone has an idea :-)
So please, any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. (and sorry for my english)
