Firefox updated to Quantum and I lost all my Bookmark descriptions

Posted

I need to recover ALL my stored descriptions in my Bookmarks as I didn't get a chance to save/export them. This is quite necessary. Thank you

Hi, as per the release notes, we haven't yet removed the actual descriptions. They are still stored in the database for the time being (they will be removed from the storage sometime in the future, but we haven't decided when yet).

You can export your bookmarks to json or HTML format from Firefox 62 and it'll include the description fields automatically.

For json, you can use the bookmarks backup system to export a file:

For HTML you can export:
