bookmarks disappeared

Posted

After restarting my computer, I got a new FF web page and ALL my bookmarks as well as history have been deleted.

How do I get them ALL back?

I have tried every solution on the Mozilla Help section - I cant do a Restore I have a very old version of backups - 2016

The online help system is going around and around in circles not giving any solutions. 4 hours of trying to sort this out is ridculous.

I really do not want to have to move to Chrome, I far prefer Mozilla, but I can not afford to loose more time sorting this problem out. If not resolved here, I will reluctantly have to restart all my bookmarks in Chrome.

I need all my bookmarks - some are work related.

Please Help

As there are no more responses to my question, I take it that there is no solution.

Next question, How do I prevent this from happening again (other than daily backups)?

"right-click: Properties -> Previous Versions"

Rt click where?

You need to right-click places.sqlite in Windows Explorer.

You can check in Windows Explorer if there is a previous version of the places.sqlite file available or files in the bookmarkbackups folder.

You either need an older copy of places.sqlite or a backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

Alternatively you can look at this utility to browse System Restore points.
