New version did not import old bookmarks. Now what?

Posted

FF automatically installed a new version and did not import any of my bookmarks from the old version. How can I recover them and add them to the new version? (This has majorly screwed up my day and I am PISSED).

The Recover lost or missing Bookmarks documentation should be able to help you in this situation.

Hope this helps.

Did you try to reboot the computer?

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page

In case errors are reported with "Verify Integrity" close and restart Firefox and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

  • keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created

Do you have automatically created compressed .jsonlz4 JSON backups available in the bookmarkbackups folder?
