Try to restore the bookmarks from a JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder that still has the tags.


Question owner

Thanks, cor-el...tried that already using the oldest backup file available. No luck.

I recently used an extension, CheckPlaces 2.6.2 to find/replace missing favicons. It was after this that I noticed the missing tags. I've requested help from the author.
