Some bookmarks did not show up so I asked to restore (from the bookmark menu) - now all have disappeared. What files are the bookmarks stored in (in the system) So I can use the time machine to restore them from a previous date?
I do a lot of work on the web and I have a ton of bookmarks that I use to maintain various sites. I have lost them all!
I have tried to install a clean copy of the programme and restore the Mozilla file from the User Library (in time machine) but all I have is a white space where the bookmark toolbar was! I also have a problem in trying to enter all the bookmarks manually again. I can open the bookmark drop down but I cannot save any bookmarks. Firefox will not let me bookmark any new pages. I still have all the passwords in the preferences so I do not want to install a completely new copy of the programme and loose these.
Are there any other system files that Firefox uses that I can restore from the backup to solve the problem? I have a Mac Pro and I am running OSX 10.6.4 I have used Firefox for many years and never had a problem before. Can anybody help - please?
This can be a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.Read this answer in context 👍 0

Brilliant!! I located the profiles folder with the help from this and restored it. Now all is back to normal. Thank you very much for your assistance. regards - Ray
