How to restore a bookmarks backup without having errors?

I have backupped my bookmarks using Firefox's functionality to do it automatically and saved the file to an external HD before I was making a clean installation of Windows, which means all my files were removed. Later on, after re-installing Firefox, I tried to use the backup I had so I can have all my bookmarks once again, but when I try to look for that file, it seems it has the wrong format (a regular "File" instead of JSON or HTML, not sure which one of them should it be). So I tried to change it to "*.JSON" and it still didn't shoe up in the dialog box. So I tried "*.HTML", which DOES show up but everytime I try to import it, it actually does nothing.

I really need this file since it contains many sites that I need. Thanks in advance.

Now, that I have loaded it back up as my main browser it still does the same thing when I'm at G+ and my gmail account but, not yet with my yuku account which FF is highly recommended their.

The worst was when it was happening in my FF tool bar but, so far it has not but, has me paranoid that it will happen again like before since it's still happening @ G+ and Gmail.

Ooo when I tried to take a screen shot for you to see what I see it went away and went back to normal again.

Is it me or is there a bug in there that I am not knowing about or is it s little glitch?

P.S. My bf has been on FF forever and has never had this problem!

Thank you so much for your undivided time, Marie =0)

Hi As of Firefox 20, this issue is STILL unaddressed and unresolved. Why won't ANYONE at mozilla support PLEASE tell us what the story is... with Firefox switching to original window... when a site with flash elements... is "opened in a new window"? PLEASE? If there's a bickering match over "how things should be done" between flash folk and Firefox folk, TELL US! Closing the thread DOES NOT make the anomaly go away.

Suddenly, since the latest update (20.0.1) my right-click menu is terribly LONG. It's filled with things that seem useful, but are not to be and are not necessary at all. E.g. it contains video-control options, like mute and play, go full screen.

More weird and worse above this is: absolutely nothing in that same menu works or does anything. I

Here is a screen capture of it. It is the regular menu, randomly clicked, which appears everywhere. http://s23.postimg.org/ur0zwg4bf/regrigclibar.png

What's about this? Bug? I think anyway it is broken and needs to be solved.

Please continue here: [/questions/958401]

Lost my use of the Extension add-on Multi-row Bookmarks Toolbar vs 5.0.1 (latest), don't have any idea why. It was enabled but wouldn't work. Ended up removing, downloading and installed it again. Restarted Firefox but it still doesn't work. It shows up as active allowing 5 rows to be displayed. Frustrating!!

Any help will be appreciated..........Ralph

I formatted my computer 30th April and started all over to get my Mozilla working and have all of my bookmarks and passwords. As always I tried to log into Sync and have my info back but, as soon as I entered both email/pass and recover key none of my 'personal bookmarks' and /or passwords were visible. I tried to get a new recovery key in case it was wrong and now I finally synced it but I only have 2-3 passwords that I saved till today. So I would like you to somehow restore my account 3-4 days ago were I actually hadn't formatted and had all of my passwords(MOST important actually). Thank you for your time .

I tried solving my question regarding searching in my address bar, which results in me being brought to an DNS address somethimes instead of google. Through doing this I have created a new problem, this being, everytime I search in the address bar i'm being brought directly to google frontpage, without any search result to show for it.

So if we could solve these 2 problems, it would be amazing. :)

Thanks for reading.

I downloaded a file from my yahoo mail messages yesterday that appeared as "read-only" so I went through the trouble of right-clicking the file in the containing folder and unchecking the "read only" and spent 2 hours adding writing to the document because it's a story I'm working on and saved it to my documents on my laptop but today the file cannot be found on my computer but shows up still in my download folder. However, when I click on the file to open the containing folder, it WILL NOT OPEN. I need to know how I can recover the version of the document that I saved after working on it for TWO HOURS so that the work is NOT Lost Forever! Please help me recover the lost work version and to OPEN IT successfully.

I need a response ASAP please! Thank you for taking the time to read and respond.

Sincerely,

Lexi
