When I click Bookmarks in the menu bar, and let up on Bookmark this page, nothing happens. When I check my bookmarks nothing has been added. I am used to a popup window that allows me to choose which folder to put the new bookmark in. It no longer appears. I tried reinstalling Firefox and this did not help. What do I do to restore Bookmarking capability?

Changed profile folder from partition labeled A in my C drive to the primary partition on C drive because my A drive, a partition on my C drive, was lost. Now can't restore bookmarks. Do I have to make another partition labeled A to restore my bookmarks? (When I try to restore bookmarks I get "Unable to process the backup file" message.) Thanks.

Hallo,

DE: ich habe eben den Rechner von meinem Vater von Windows 7 auf Windows 10 geupdatet. Ich habe natürlich vorher alle Daten auf eine externe Festplatte gesichert. Nun habe ich den Pc neu installiert und einfach den Mozilla Ordner unter "%appdate%" mit dem alten gespeicherten Ordner ausgetauscht. Leider funktioniert das nicht und die Lesezeichen sind immer noch nicht da. Kann mir einer helfen? EN: I just updated my father's computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Of course, I backed up all data to an external hard drive beforehand. Now I have reinstalled the PC and simply exchanged the Mozilla folder under "% appdate%" with the old saved folder. Unfortunately that doesn't work and the bookmarks are still not there. Can someone help me?

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

Hi,

I need technical help on recovering my lost bookmarks. I have followed the suggested recovery methods and when I move today's backup "file ....json" (?) (as one suggested) to the bookmarks menu, clicked on it to open, it does nothing. If I click on the saved file on my desktop it's a bunch of mumbo jumbo...like writing code. I even tried importing it and I get nothing. I deleted Mozilla Firefox and reinstalled it and still nothing.

I'm so lost on this....

Cananyone help?
