Edited to correct some history -- so the followng transcript may be a bit out of synch -- I will state my current question below.

Two things happened at the same time -- I uninstalled Adobe Flash, and a Windows Update ran. I didn't notice the Windows update, so I blamed the wrong thing, the Flash uninstall. It was WIndows.

The Windows update caused all my bookmarks and history (and most cookies) to disappear. I'm on Firefox 68.10.0esr

I found my Profiles at C:\Users\[me]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles but I don't understand what's in there enough to fish the bookmarks out, and I don't see anything that looks like "15 backups" promised by the Mozilla help pages.

Where are my Bookmark backups?

The Bookmarks are all there, but the url is missing. None of the extensions (including ones I've paid for are there)

The logins weren't there, but are now restored from a previous install.

What I have done...

1. exported bookmarks to html and checked them out there. They were broken there as well.

2. Refreshed Firefox,

3. Restarted the PC.

4. Uninstalled Firefox (and discovered that I had both X32 and X64 on my machine) - uninstalled both. 5. Reinstalled Firefox x64 (current version 86.0.1)

6. the places.sqlite files from previous restores have the same problem.

I've started to refresh the links for the toolbar which has taken me awhile. I don't want to have to do it for all my hundred's of bookmarks.

Ideally what I'd like to do is uninstall the latest update, look at the bookmarks to see if they are still stuffed, and if the extensions are there. If they are ok, then I want to back the bookmarks to html. Reinstall the update, then restore the bookmarks. (And make a list of the extension names so I can reinstall them).

My guess is either that the sqlite file has corrupted, or the update has changed the file layout for the bookmarks, etc, and it's unable to interpret the links.

How to move more than one bookmark to a Windows folder.

Hi! I need some help, please. Is there a way to move more than just one bookmark at a time to folders on my Windows laptop? I have thousands of bookmarks saved on my Firefox. And I wish to save them all on my laptop. But in the way you save one and one, not with that whole saving everything in one file. But saving them all so I can just double click the icon link in my windows to have it opened in Firefox again.

So anyway. It is possible to drag one and one bookmark like this. But I have never figured out how to move more at once. Is this possible? Please help. It would make my life so much easier, when I need to go through the 20,000+ things I have saved.

So, I just noticed today that my bookmarks section is having the same issue again that it had a few updates back.


I tried looking into repeating what I did last time, but it doesn't seem that this is the issue this time as the settings have not changed from when I went into to edit them the last time. Meaning this might be a whole new issue. I *did* however notice that there is a new and odd section listing in about:config under the following:


browser.bookmarks.defaultLocation SxQPPk-c1zth


Does anyone know if this is the issue, and if so, where this is supposed to really go?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Hallo,

DE: ich habe eben den Rechner von meinem Vater von Windows 7 auf Windows 10 geupdatet. Ich habe natürlich vorher alle Daten auf eine externe Festplatte gesichert. Nun habe ich den Pc neu installiert und einfach den Mozilla Ordner unter "%appdate%" mit dem alten gespeicherten Ordner ausgetauscht. Leider funktioniert das nicht und die Lesezeichen sind immer noch nicht da. Kann mir einer helfen? EN: I just updated my father's computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Of course, I backed up all data to an external hard drive beforehand. Now I have reinstalled the PC and simply exchanged the Mozilla folder under "% appdate%" with the old saved folder. Unfortunately that doesn't work and the bookmarks are still not there. Can someone help me?

I raised the problem and had a response kindly trying to assist but after following all the steps advised I still can't access any bookmarks or history.

I have located the places.sqlite file as advised and renamed it but when I restart Firefox nothing changes and it makes no attempt to recover bookmarks from the backup files.

I would welcome any assistance as I have saved details I need.

Thank you.

I lost some of my bookmarks (I have 19000) when my cat stepped on my keyboard. No problem i make a daily back-up of my bookmarks since they are so precious for me (Thousand of BM are related too my work) It's not the first time I restore and I never encountered any probleme before. This morning, I did the usual but FF crashed and I had to restart my computer a few time. At one point, and I have no clue why, it restored a part of the BM but not the pesonal bar which is the most important since that's where I keep my BM for my research work.

Is the file too big now (It's about 5 Mo) if so why am-i not advise by FF when I save? Otherwise what could be the source of my problem??

Thanks

So for the second time this month my bookmarks in my toolbar have disappeared. I was signed into my Firefox account both times they went missing. I tired to restore from backup...... nothing. I made sure that the tool bar was enabled.... nothing. I'm so frustrated, as I am in full-time school with three days left in my term and all my textbooks and course sites are GONE!! I don't understand why this keeps happening.

Help!

How to fill in these outlines of bookmark folders in the sidebar? (See image posted with this).

These folders were a solid light blue until FF89 - I'm sure there is something in usersChrome.css I can modify, but no clue as to what.

Any directions, please make them step-by-step!

My PC (running Windows 10) crashed and when I restarted I'd lost all of my bookmarks plus I was prompted to create a new user profile. I'm running Firefox 89.0.1 I've tried following the information to find and restore my bookmarks but when I try this all Firefox prompts me is to import from another browser platform (which I don't use). Any ideas?
