After I selected "default" for my theme, I went to my home page and missing were all my features in the toolbar and only the new bookmarks were there. Looked for help and went and opened Application basics to find my profile folder. I did find it but NOW WHAT? Went to another article looking for help and could not find specific answers to my questions. Could someone please tell me what to do when I locate my bookmarks folder in the (onedrive) window - and I right click. THEN WHAT?

Again, I have located my bookmarks in my profile folder. I right-clicked and the menu opens up - now what do I select? I don't want to lose them again because it took a week to move them from my old system to this one. This morning, my old and new bookmarks were finally on my Firefox page (under bookmarks). Now , they're gone simply because I changed my "Theme" to default. Btw, your themes are very lacking. Unfortunately, the other themes offered as an install are lacking as well. Thank you for help...

Hi, sorry to hear about this problem. Changing a theme through the Add-ons page or through Customize shouldn't have any effect on your Firefox data, it just changes the color scheme of the toolbar area. Was that how you did it or did you do something else?

If you have your missing bookmarks in an HTML-format file (like bookmarks.html) you can import them, but it would be easiest to copy or move the file to a move convenient location, such as your desktop. See this article for the steps to import: Import Bookmarks from an HTML file.

After importing, the bookmarks might all be in an Imported Bookmarks folder on the Bookmarks Menu. Please check for that if you don't see them in the expected places.

Any progress?

Thank you jscher but I don't think I will be able to accomplish that. I just want to know what to do once I find my old bookmarks (and I have) in my profile folder in Application Basics. I don't want to lose them by doing something wrong. There are in my profile - so I will wait until I can get some help.

Thank you PKShadow. I will continue to try and work out this issue and others with my firefox. If not, I will unfortunately move on. Its been a frustrating week.

What exactly did you find? The reason I ask is:

  • Bookmarks are stored in the Places database (places.sqlite) combined with history. Normally you would not be able to read its contents to confirm what's in there.
  • Firefox's daily backups of your bookmarks are stored in the bookmarkbackups folder but they are in a compressed format so normally you would not be able to read their contents.

jscher: I found them in my profile folder/Application Basics (article on FFox that suggested where to find a user's personal stuff). I had sent them from my old system.btw. I did not open/read it - but that is where it was.

I have since recovered them just by chance (searching thru history and using an earlier session).
