Hello, Firefox was not working properly for me so I decided to uninstall it and reinstall. I thought I would still have my bookmarks and passwords since I was signed into my Firefox account. But now I have nothing. How can I recover this on Mac-IOS?

Whenever I make changes in Bookmarks Manager, they aren't applied to my bookmarks in Firefox. They are saved within the Bookmarks Manager, they just don't update to my actual bookmarks (i.e., the way my bookmarks are displayed within the Bookmarks Manager does NOT match the way my bookmarks actually show up in the browser). I have tried:

-refreshing Firefox -unchecking the box for "read-only" in the places.sqlite file (as recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-add-change-or-save-bookmarks) -deleting both the "places.sqlite" file and the "xulstore-json" file (as recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-add-change-or-save-bookmarks) -restarting my computer

This is a major issue for me and may mean I have to switch back to Chrome if I can't get it sorted. Any other suggestions on how I can fix this issue?

Today y bookmarks disappeared. I can't recover them. When I use the Recover option and select a date of the file, nothing happens. Absent a recovery of the bookmarks, I'll have to move to another browser and I really don't want to do this.

I lost all the bookmarks suddenly where i was using this browser for office work, there was no action taken from my end like deletion or any upgrade, however suddenly when i start machine today, i found all bookmarks lost. To restore backup I entered to Profile --> bookmark backup this file is extension JSONLZ4 which is not visible during restore bookmark.

This is quite important to recover these suddenly lost all bookmarks, so is there any way or support available?

Unfortunately this is first time i am facing such kind of issue, So kindly also let me know if we should trust mozilla firefox as default browser and to save bookmarks?

Thanks & Regards

I had to put in a new hard-drive into my computer that I previously was running Firefox browser on so I downloaded the Firefox back on after the new hard-drive was done. Before on my old hard-drive when I click Firefox browser and it came on, it had a ribbon across the top of the screen underneath the back arrow, forward arrow, and search URL that I used the most of in my favorites (I think it showed across the screen about 10 of my bookmarks) to click on instead of going into all my bookmarks to get. How can I put my most used bookmarks across the top of screen now instead of just clicking the "star" that show ALL my bookmarks and I have to go down to whichever one I want to use and boy do I have a bunch of bookmarks even thou they are in alphabet order? I hope someone can tell me how to do this!

I wanted to make another bookmark menu, and I did but instead of being empty it has the exact same things as the other one. I can't delete anything from either one without deleting it from the other one. I wanted to have one empty so I could categorize them. Is there anything I can do to keep one, and have the other one empty?

I am not able to add or remove bookmarks. The bookmarks library is empty. I can't restore to any back up bookmarks. I restarted in safe mode. No bookmarks. I reset Firefox. No bookmarks. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. No bookmarks. I did a Revo Uninstall and cleared the registry. No bookmarks. I deleted the localstore.rdf. No bookmarks. This is kinda a deal breaker for me. I might have to go to Chrome or IE.

I had about 100 folders w/bookmarks last week and by mistake I imported about 500 other folders dated over several months ago. I discovered I don't need those 500 folders. How do I get ride of all of them without doing it individually? I want to avoid trying to delete them individually folder by folder because it would just be too time consuming. Is there a way to highlight them all (500) and the delete all at once? thank you I await your answer.

Perhaps I can put first 100 folders altogether in another single folder, say X. And then export X as a back up. Then somehow remove all 600 folders plus X all at once some how completely emptying the bookmark listings and import back the backed up folder X. Can that be done?
