Hmm, neither the Safe Mode nor the Refresh options should remove your bookmarks.

The .jsonlz4 files are used by the Restore feature. Please see this article for more info: Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer.

Also, in case the problem is that a Refresh turned off the display of the Bookmarks Toolbar, you can use one of these methods to show the toolbar list and select the desired bars there:

To turn on the Bookmarks Toolbar, Menu Bar, or other bars, click it on the list.

Any improvement?

Please see this article for more info: [[Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer]]. Also, in case the problem is that a Refresh turned off the display of the Bookmarks Toolbar, you can use one of these methods to show the toolbar list and select the desired bars there: * right-click a blank spot on the tab bar (or the "+" button) * tap the Alt key to activate the classic menu bar > View > Toolbars * in Customize mode > Show/Hide Toolbars (see: [[Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars]]) To turn on the Bookmarks Toolbar, Menu Bar, or other bars, click it on the list.
