I had went into the task manager and accidentally deleted the firefox task the was going. When I went back on firefox, all my bookmarks were gone. I tried restarting it, without any luck. I tried getting the backups, to find I had none. Nothing has worked for me. Thought originally I was trying to get google chrome on my computer, only for that not to work, so I'm not sure if that may have messed it up or not. Please help me.

Hi, I am a long time user of firefox and am in the habit of putting helpful comments in the <properties> field of my bookmarks. I regularly export my bookmarks and in looking at my exported bookmark files I can see my comments. However, due to a PC problem I have, for the first time, had to import my bookmarks. They come in without error but minus my handy little comments. I am hoping some clever soul will be able to tell me how to import bookmarks with my comments as it will take me ages to recreate all these little comments for each bookmark. Thank you

Firefox 17.0.1 Win7

Some time ago -- somewhere and somehow -- I found a way to display all of my Bookmarks / Bookmark folders in a vertical column on the left side of my monitor. This list of Bookmarks "stuck" and appeared at all times.

It seems I must have recently accidentally clicked on something to cause this Bookmark list to disappear.

How do I get it back?

My objective is to make a global edit to the bookmarks in one folder. To do so, I exported to an HTML file, opened that file in Notepad, deleted all the other bookmarks, and did a search-and-replace to correct the ones I was trying to fix. Saved the file and attempted to import into Firefox. I *can* open the file and see the links, and I can use Import and Backup to get to the file and select it for import. However, after that, NOTHING happens.

Why is it so complicated to import my old Firefox bookmarks? I have a harddrive from my old computer (march 2012) in a ext hard drive enclosure which is attached to my new laptop via USB, and I can NOT find a simple way to import my old bookmarks. I wasted several hours today trying to do that. I have bookmarks-2012-02-07.json and I have places.sqlite. I want to >include< which ever file has my old bookmarks with the existing new bookmarks file. That’s it! Please don’t tell me to convert it HTML, it didn’t work.

I used Mozbackup to save my bookmarks and other profile info on my computer and then restored it onto my partners computer on my login - however in doing so I have managed to overwrite her profile. There is now only one profile folder (mine). Is there any way I can recover her profile info - especially bookmarks? Is there a recovery program I can use to find it lurking somewhere? I tried system restore to no avail.
