is there any way to retrieve ONE MISSING BOOKMARK...containing months of research, and the only one missing??

Posted

I suddenly have one bookmark missing...only one! which just so happens to be the one containing all the research I am currently working on. And it contains months and months of compiled data, websites, etc...WHICH IS needed to finish my project. was sick this last week and did not turn on computer at all, and I know the bookmark was there when I last used computer. Tried to do several system restores, only to get a message back on each (4) saying " restore could not be completed" but no explanation as to why...is there any other way to retrieve this bookmark? IT wasn't backup'd, (LIKE IT SHOULD OF BEEN) or in recycle bin ?? in case it was deleted...(which I'm not sure where it goes if it were deleted..) ANY SUGGESTIONS??? COULD REALLY USE HELP!!!

Open Bookmarks > Show all Bookmarks > History and check the list (for last 7 days for instance).

It may make sense to Import and Backup > Export Bookmarks to HTML, so that you have them all safe.

The question details show Firefox OS.

Is this a problem on such a mobile device or is that on a desktop computer (your user agent suggests you are on Windows XP)?

Did you check that you haven't moved this bookmark by accident to another bookmarks folder?

If it happened so long ago that this bookmark is no longer in one of the JSON backups (bookmarks-####-##-##.json) in the bookmarkbackups folder then chances to retrieve this bookmark aren't very good.

You can try to create a new profile and see if restoring a JSON backup that looks promising in regard of the date shows you the lost bookmark.
