Dear Firefox support,

I am writing to inquiry about bookmarks. I have hundreds of bookmarks, if not thousands with many folders, which I have saved over the last decade. I have always synced my account and it should all be there upon downloading a new firefox on my new computer. However, the HTML file that it is asking me to upload from is not a file I am able to find in by backups, time machine, or anywhere else. It is also not in my account after I sign in. I have spent nearly 10 hours trying to figure this out. I have read all your articles and went through the steps of about:profiles. ALL my bookmarks should have been synced and saved. I have firefox in my Time-machine backup also. But none of the library files populates the bookmarks.

It would be a huge harm to my research career if I am unable to restore my bookmarks. I have trusted and used Firefox for a long time. Please assist me in obtaining these bookmarks in my browser.

Best,

Firefox no longer creates a bookmarks HTML backup buy default.

You can make Firefox create an automatic HTML backup (bookmarks.html) in the Firefox profile folder when Firefox is closed by setting browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML to true on the about:config page.

The HTML backup is created by default in the profile folder as bookmarks.html every time you close Firefox, but you can set the path and file name via a new String pref on the about:config page named browser.bookmarks.file and set its value to the full path of the backup bookmarks.html file including the file name.


Firefox keeps rotating compressed .jsonlz4 JSON backups of the bookmarks in the bookmarkbackups folder within the Firefox profile folder. The file name includes a total item count and a hash value that makes it possible to only create a new backup when changes are detected.

  • bookmarks-YYYY-MM-DD_<item-count>_<hash>.jsonlz4

You can set the maximum JSON backup count via the browser.bookmarks.max_backups pref (default: 15) on the about:config page.

You can look at this tool to inspect a compressed jsonlz4 bookmarks backup and possibly convert this file to HTML to be able to import/merge bookmarks.
