I had originally upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 from 18.04. Had an issue and I had to reload 20.04. Things seem stable now. I went to restore my bookmarks. Went to Library Icon and clicked on it, but there was no IMPORT and BACKUP button. I even went to the Menu Icon and clicked on it to see if that would work. Nope.

I'm running 79.0. What did I do, but better yet, how do I fix this????

You need to open the Bookmarks Manager (Library).

Can you attach a screenshot of the Library window?


In the Bookmarks Manager (Library) there is a toolbar with the Back and Forward button and three other buttons (Organize, Views, Import & Backup). If you hover a button then you should see a descriptive tooltip text.

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.

This is the screen shot I was able to capture.
