I'm trying to move all my Bookmarks to a new Win 10 PC. When I do that, the folders I have for various subjects are empty and all the Bookmarks end up in one large list.

After years of keeping them organized, I've got a mess. Help/suggestions appreciated.

I'm tried everything I can find online and nothing works. I'm at my wits end here. I exported my bookmarks to HTML on Mac1 across my network, copied them to Mac2 and now I can import them into Firefox, but I cannot get them into the toolbar no matter what I do or which solutions I try to use from online and it's driving me nuts! Why do they have to make this so impossible?

Ever since the issue I had with tabs not being restored I've taken to simply bookmarking everything I might need later which has resulted in a large number of Bookmarks

Soon after this I noticed my History wasn't being saved beyond 7 days and thought this might be due to the bookmarks competing for resources with the history

I checked places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages and it's value is 98675

My disk space fluctuates but it never usually dips below 10GB

I'm trying to find a way to put my bookmark library into a table/excel so I can do date-accessed analysis. I can see the date columns in the library view in firefox, but need to be able to manipulate so I see only sites accessed in 2019. I don't know java, SQL, or any other coding/database language, other than Excel lookup formulas. Any tools/suggestions welcome.

Hello

Suddenly, all the favicons for my bookmarks are lost. Maybe it's because of a HP Cleaning tool.

However: Why doesn't Firefox "reload" the favicons when I open the bookmarks? Can I force the favicons to be re-loaded?

I am thankful for any help. Thanks already in advance for all the very nice supporters here!

OK, I'm having a LOT of trouble with my sync, and bookmark archiving. If I export my bookmarks as html, and import them, none are in folders anymore! As far as I can tell, asking Firefox to "restore" from a particular date does something similar. The only way I understand to back up my bookmarks, and more them to another machine in an organized way is with the Profile folder (and profile.ini file). When I share that folder and that file, everything is copied exactly, and organized properly. So that being the case, what the h are "backup", "restore", "import" and "export" useful for?

If there some writeup on EXACTLY how to manage bookmark backups in Firefox? I've never seen one. You'd like to believe that when you "restore" your bookmarks, they end up organized the way they were originally.
