I recently had to create a new profile, and thought I had backed up my bookmarks. They are now gone and I have not been able to restore them. Any chance they can be recovered? Thanks!

I hope you haven't deleted your old Profile yet. See this: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Recovering+important+data+from+an+old+profile

Think they are gone with the wind. Not a big problem, fortunately. Thanks for the assist!

Hi Cor-el! I saved under bookmarks/organize bookmarks/import and backup. Since I cannot find that file anywhere on my system, it is certainly possibly that I did not complete the process. Was hoping it may have auto backed up someplace. Fortunately, I can recreate most of it with a little work, so this is not a disaster. Thanks!

It is possible that you forgot to add a file extension (.json) while saving and in that case you may be looking for the wrong file.

Also make sure that you search for hidden files and folder in case the file was saved in the Firefox Profile Folder

Firefox won't import the file without a .json file extension ("Can't process ..."), but you can create a backup with any name.
