Bookmarks missing after last update
I updated to v 67.0 (64-bit) and my bookmarks are missing. Very vexing. I followed the instructions for getting then from the Old Firefox Data folder however, they are still missing. Much more vexed. Please advise.
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:67.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/67.0
Firefox backs-up your bookmarks every day, automatically.
Open the Library with control+shift+B. In the center near the top select Import and Backup. Hover your cursor over Restore and a menu will appear with the last 15 days of back-ups.
Select the date that you wish to Restore.
Firefox 67 and later can use a dedicated profile for each of the Firefox update channels and will lock the profile, so it can only be used by Firefox in a specific installation folder. For Release versions this profile would be a xxxxxxxx.default-release profile, profiles used in older Firefox versions usually used a xxxxxxxx.default profile (a refresh adds a time stamp).
You can open the about:profiles page via the location bar to check whether multiple profiles are present and what profile Firefox currently is using.
- Do NOT click any Remove button on this page.
