Firefox 80 isn't exporting all of my Bookmarks
I've just upgraded my Windows (10) browser to Firefox 80. Unfortunately, it isn't exporting all of my bookmarks - only some of them!
Any idea how I can fix this problem? TIA

Hi, is there any pattern to what is missing from the export, or does it seem random?
If you want to try an alternate method, I have a tool on my website to convert Firefox's "backup" format -- a JSON data file -- to the HTML export format.
(1) To create a backup, see:
(2) My converter page:
If there is a problem creating a backup or the converter says the file is corrupted/invalid:
Could you let us know what you get when you run the "Verify Integrity" function. That's here:
Open Firefox's Troubleshooting Information page using any of these methods:
- "3-bar" menu button > "?" Help > Troubleshooting Information
- (menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information
- type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter
Near the bottom, there is a section titled Places Database -- that's the file which stores history and bookmarks. Click the button labeled Verify Integrity. There may be a 10-15 second delay before results appear.
If all is well, the report that appears below the button should start with:
> Task: checkIntegrity + The places.sqlite database is sane + The favicons.sqlite database is sane
Does yours say that, or something else? You can select and copy the report, and then paste it into a reply for review and comment.
