Hi my friends,

My PC was broken so I re-installed the OS, then re-installed the Firefox browser, reset the password and signed in to sync the bookmarks, but then I noticed all of my important bookmarks collected in the last 5+ years are lost, is that a Firefox bug? Any way to recover them? Any advice would be much appreciated.

P.S. I'm a developer and bookmarks are very important to me, but this is the second time Firefox lose my bookmarks, the first time was caused by the Firefox Android app years ago, such experience is really frustrated, looks like I might have to give up Firefox and seek for a different browser as my primary browser.

I reinstalled Win10, clean install. Reinstalled Firefox, v88 and imported my bookmarks (.json). Took a while (36.4Mo) but they got imported and I got to sort the latest bookmarks them into folders and tags while I transferred files from a hard drive. Trimmed them to 31 Mo and saved a backup. Exited firefox. Later I launch firefox to install addons and notice all my latest bookmarks have vanished. All my tags are gone too.

When I check to restore my backup, I have the choice between - today's automated backup (11 Mo; 110.000 items) 100.000 items, that is, half of my bookmarks. - ... or my manual save I did. Restoring my manual save returns the bookmarks and tags. But they disappear when I exit firefox. Sitting for half a hour for my bookmarks to load each time I launch firefox is not a solution. I estimate there's 70k to 100k links and 1k tags missing.

I have one only profile. Fresh, latest FF, no addons. No clue too.

As said: Bookmarks only visible in new tab, by default.

Why are all those anti-usability features made so regularly, after every update? Why does Mozilla has a thing for bad design choices in general?

Is there a specific reason for this? Just horrible designers, or bad intend?

Fix for this particular problem: Menu bar => Customize => at the bottom switch 'toolbar' to 'bookmarks' => always show.

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.

So, I just noticed today that my bookmarks section is acting oddly. Normally it brings up the option for where to send a bookmark. But randomly, I've seen it suddenly switch to just defaulting to the last bookmark location. For example, I want to bookmark something in a bookmark folder I have specific for things related to writing, but when I go to bookmark the site, the first thing that comes up is the location I created for youtube videos. What exactly is going on here, and how do I fix that?

Why is Firefox now starting to remove bookmarks from my bookmarks menu. Several bookmarks have been repeatedly removed from my list. Just understand me, if you have started to sensor bookmarks , i will leave and use another browser. I am very disappointing with this browser. Open source and and a free community to share info. I guess you have also been taken over by big tech. Very sad, I guess it's Good Bye.
