Unable to activate bookmarks from "bookmarkbackups" folder

My iMAC desktop computer crashed yesterday and ultimately I ended up having to go into recovery mode, erase the hard drive to reinstall the OS and then restore the applications and files from TimeMachine using Migration Assistant. All of that worked fine, but Firefox was still hanging up, so I deleted it and downloaded the most recent version. That of course wiped out all of my bookmarks. I used Time Machine to restore the "bookmarksbackup" folder as shown in the image below. That did not help, at least in terms of restoring my bookmarks to Firefox. I noticed that a second profile had been created, so I copied the same list of files to the bookmarksbackup folder under that profile. Still no help. It occurred to me that perhaps there is another place where the current active bookmark file should live, but if that is the case, I can't figure out where that might be. I'm quite stuck and really need access to my bookmarks. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

PS: I've since run a thorough virus scan using Microsoft Defender and checked disk integrity using DiskUtility.

The dialog in the Library to restore a JSON backup has a "Choose File..." item that allows to restore a backup in other location.


There could be a problem with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use the "Places Database" -> "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page

If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox or reboot and retry.

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page (Root directory).

Hilfreich?
