hello abuanzbishal,

Sorry to hear about that. First, Firefox automatically creates backups of your bookmarks, which can be helpful if your bookmarks are lost or missing.

Click the Bookmarks button Bookmarks-29 (or New Fx Menu > Bookmarks) and select Show All Bookmarks. At the top of the Library window, click on Import and Backup and select Restore. Click the date of the bookmark backup you want to recover. In the new window that appears, click OK. Your bookmarks from the selected date should now be restored. For more information, see the Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer article. For other solutions, see the Recover lost or missing Bookmarks article.

If the above doesn't work, it could be that a file got corrupted (namely the places.sqlite file). You can install the Places Maintenance extension to run maintenance on the file. Please read the following articles first as they provide helpful hints and instructions that may be relevant to you:

hello abuanzbishal,

please follow these steps On the Restore menu, click the "Choose File..." option at the bottom. This should open a file browsing window. Navigate the window to your Desktop, then click into Old Firefox Data, click into the old profile folder (the name is partially random, like az425bq1.default), and click into the bookmarkbackups folder.

Then you can choose a file to restore. Usually the one with the most recent date indicated in the file name will be the one you want to try first.
