Posted

I know this has been asked before But I Deleted 10 mths worth of Bookmark folders, Cant use Undo & havent backed up (live & learn) Someone posted do a restore from "Import & Backup" My listing in Restore is only 2010-6-29 back to 2010-6-22. Is this the way to go to retrieve as much as possible or is there another solution?

Those dates are when a backup was automatically made by Firefox, not dates when you saved specific bookmarks. Try restoring the backup from the day before you deleted all those bookmarks. It will restore the entire backup file - not just what you deleted, you will lose any bookmarks that you saved after the date of the file you restore. https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Lost+Bookmarks
