where did my bookmarks go?


for some reason the bookmarks on my desktop were all replaced by a single folder called 'mobile'. i restored from a backup but it was two days old and missing a bunch of stuff i had just done. when i opened Firefox on the only mobile device on which i have it installed, my nexus 7 tablet' the missing bookmarks were there but immediately got overwritten by sync. is there an android backup like there is for the desktop? where is it?

Additional System Details


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Tablet; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0

Try to disconnect from Sync, quit Firefox, delete places.sqlite, restart Firefox, and re-set up Sync.
You may need to restore the bookmarks from an older JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.
