I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

Some sites are missing favicons making the toolbar useless if I have to use text to identify them. I quit using FF because of this about a year ago as all the solutions on here did not work. Seems as though FF could fix this internally as it is not a problem on Chrome, IE, Edge or any other browser I have used. Why can't FF fix what seems to be very simple problem? Came back and it is still a problem. Again all the listed fixes that I have to initiate, have not worked. Why can't FF fix this through an update. I am not the only one who has this issue and it is exclusively a FF problem. Not a computer expert but this seems to be a VERY easy fix via updates especially since it has been an issue for literally years. Don't want to go back to Chrome as I like all that FF stands for, but... Thanks for reading

Hello

I have a problem when restoring the file from one computer to another, when I want to restore it it gives this error "Unable to process the backup file". I have been looking for some program that allows me to unzip or remove the data or repair.

I have consulted many forums and videos and I cannot know if the failure is irreparable or is there any way to get the information I have consulted this page but it does not finish working https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html

"File name: bookmarks-2020-07-24_1163_gm8tLHmdNSoVAHsxUPQZAg==.jsonlz4; Size: 137303; last modified 24/7/2020 9:46:12 (failed JSON parsing: SyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected character at line 1 column 1 of the JSON data)"

Can anybody help me?

thanks,

while i was doing something else, a new version of firefox asked to be installed. I closed the window but somehow it continued. I have a new version but all my bookmarks and bookmark tools etc are lost. I tried to follow the instructions from help, but it seems like the bookmarks have been deleted there is nothing in them. Are they stored anywhere in the computer and if so, how can I import them?

I have thousend bookmarks in different folders. I want to export one folder into a single file. The bookmark-manager don't allow this.

My workaround (worst pratice) in windows. i select the folder and copy it into the windows-clipboard. The i open the texteditor notepad++. I paste the clipboard into a new file. Then I get the list of links.

The manually correction of the HTML-Exportfile is tiresome. That is not a solution for my problem.

Is there a better way to manage bookmarks? The problem is really old : https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/831118

I got a message yesterday saying if my browser was very slow to run your Refresh which stated it would not erase my bookmarks. Well I ran refresh and wouldn't you know it your program must have updated the browser and it ERASED OF OF MY BOOKSMARKS. I am really angry. I am a genalogist and the last thing I needed was to lose all of my booksmarks. How do I get them back?????? I also can not create any bookmarks going forward. Your system will not allow me to.

My FF bookmark menu seems be going crazy this morning.

It replicates bookmarks (one or two of them) dozens of times, without provocation, all by itself. I can delete the duplicates, but seconds later, they appear once again.

I restarted FF a couple times. Restarted my computer. Exported, then reimported bookmarks. Tried to uninstall FF, but was then given the option to "refresh," which is what I did.

I thought it may have stabilized, and proceeded to reorganize the bookmarks, whose order had been scrambled. Halfway through the task, the schizo behavior returned.
