So a while ago I opened firefox on my computer and noticed all my bookmarks were dead (they had the globe and wouldn't go anywhere when clicked), I thought 'weird' and didn't do anything at the time because it wasn't what I was busy with at the time. Then, recently, I open firefox and my bookmarks are linked wrong. Like, I have Netflix bookmarked, it says Netflix, it has been netflix for as long as I have used Firefox, but if I click on it, it takes me to an article I read weeks ago at this point -one I did not bookmark or even view repeatedly. In some of my folders all of the bookmarks are missing, like they aren't dead, they're just gone.
But if I go to my ipad firefox and access my desktop bookmarks from that sync -which I literally just re-synced today- I have all my bookmarks. All of them exist, the links are fine, they're there. But I have tried refreshing Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling it, restarting my computer, logging out of my account, removing all my extensions, everything I can think of and! Nothing!
Also, if I try to restore my bookmarks from an older file, it does nothing. Or it will say it can't access them.
I don't know what's going on. I know if I wanted to I could go through and re-bookmark them all because I do have access to all of them on my ipad, but I mostly want to know if there is a way to fix it on my desktop or even figure out what happened. I can't remember anything happening around the time with my browser. Any help is much appreciated!
