I restored bookmarks but while my restored bookmarks appear in the drop down menu, they do not appear in the side bar. My bookmarks side bar is empty. How do I restore the bookmarks in the side bar?

How did you restore the Bookmarks?

Do you see all the bookmarks in the Bookmarks Manager (Library)?

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file (bookmarks, history) in the Firefox profile folder.

If the Places Maintenance extension can't repair the places.sqlite database file then remove all places.sqlite file(s) in the Firefox profile folder to make Firefox rebuild the places.sqlite database file from the most recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.
