Hello :) I know the subject might sound a bit vague so I will try to be more specific in the following.

Unfortunately, I have recently lost the full content of my Firefox profile that is usually recorded in the Application Support folder on a Mac

I had a lot of pages and tabs opened at that time and I would really like to recover all of these data if possible.

Since I cannot access to my sessionstore/recovery/bookmarks/prefs files (etc.) anymore, I would like to know if Firefox would be able to recover theses files in its database provided I had a connected Firefox account to it when it happened? If so, could you please explain me where I could find these data on my account?

Besides, could you think of another way to get to the same result knowing that I don't have a recent clone/time machine backup unfortunately?

Many thanks for your potential help!

I pressed the firefox refresh button a year ago. It said none of my bookmarks would be lost. Ive tried countless methods to open these previous bookmarks. Nothing works. I've been given several solutions which all involve complex and many sequences. I am not tech savvy at all. Is there not a simple method to open up old bookmarks by inserting the title somewhere  ?? I have windows 7 and there is on my desktop an icon saying "old firefox data".

Thankyou Philip

I think the latest update, Firefox 105.01, screwed up my bookmarks. The Star on the address bar is blue for any site. Clicking on it does nothing. Will not edit, three bar menu will not edit, Control D will not edit.

There is now a bar underneath the address bar for a toolbar which was not there previously. I have never used or needed the bookmarks toolbar.

The Release notes for 105.01 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/105.0.1/releasenotes/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-desktop&utm_campaign=about-dialog) appears as a bookmark in an unrelated folder. It will not delete.

I did look at the release notes right after the update. I closed that tab and did not bookmark it.

Cannot add new bookmarks.

I just discovered on the three bar menu under the Bookmarks menu that 105 shows as the last recent bookmark. Prior recent bookmarks will open up the "edit this bookmark." Only the save button is highlighted & clicking on that does nothing & the menu disappears.

Please fix. Thank you

Hi

I wonder whether you could help me

The OS is Windows 10

By the way, I’ve scanned over and over again, with different software, the computer for any malware, virus, etc, and it’s all clean.

I’ve used Firefox and bookmarks for years.

Lately, when I try to place (sometimes even when I’ve already placed it) the cursor on a bookmark (any bookmark) all the bookmarks (including the selected, “highlighted”, bookmark) roll away, upwards or downwards.

As for the selected bookmark, it disappears from view, even though, when I find it, I can see that the bookmark itself remains selected.

Weird.

What am I doing wrong??

In advance, thanks for your kind help

I stupidly exported my Google browser bookmarks to Firefox when setting up on a new device and lost all my firefox bookmarks from all my other devices as a result. I am utterly horrified and freaking out - it's years of bookmarked articles that I'd even organised into folders! Is there any way to get them back?

Hello, I am changing computers. I used Mozilla Firefox on the old computer and now on the new one. It's the same version; I checked. I exported the bookmarks from the old computer as HTML (that was the only option) but when I try to import them to the new computer and the same version of Firefox, they will not import.

Help?! Thank you so much! Julie

Hello,

This might be pretty niche, but I want to customize my bookmarks and save them to distribute across multiple virtual machines. These VMs run on non-networked hardware devices, that are accessed through non-networked local machines. The idea is to make the bookmarks how I need, so that they can be put on a dev stack and copied to new systems when imaged.

I can't use sync, due to not having internet connections locally or on the VMs. And I can't backup/restore configurations made locally because the changes have to be made through a domain controller (that's a VM, and also doesn't have Firefox installed) which will push configurations to all other VMs, including the local machine.

I've tried customizing through GPO, editing the registry, editing bookmarks.html, creating my own .json file; nothing seems to stick. I've also learned that renaming or deleting places.sqlite doesn't really help because it gets regenerated when Firefox opens a new window. Even tried a DB Browser for places.sqlite, in hopes to edit the file, which didn't help. Unsure where to go next, ideas or assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

This morning after no noticeable change to my computer, the bookmarks are missing from Firefox. I thought it might be after last update, but that was a week ago (I think) and I didn't have this issue until after the weekend (computer on but not used, system did not restart). The bookmark backups are listed but i get the following error when trying to load them:

"Unable to process the backup file."

I have found the file location, but even trying to do it manually gives the same error.

Is this a bug from the new update?

Bookmark Manager in Firefox Nightly 107.0a1 (2022-10-02) (64-bit) can't be maximized in Windows 7. When the bookmark manager is opened and I attempt to maximize it, only the upper left corner of the page is displayed. This is the same portion that is displayed prior to attempting to maximize the window, but the rest of the maximized window is grayed-out.

Restarting in safe mode does not solve the issue. It used to work correctly until a few days ago. Currently, the only way to resolve this issue is to restore to the last save point in Windows 7. This seems to be a bug introduced with one of the latest patches.

Hello,

I use Firefox since 14 years and I have a lot of bookmarks and folders, so can you do something to filter the folders in the "Manage bookmarks/Library"? My idea is to apply the word that I enter in the "Search Bookmarks" to all folders, can you add this option?

Example if I have a folder with the name "Hello The World", I would like this folder appear in my research if I enter the word "Hello" in the "Search Bookmarks" (Of course I also want to see the bookmark as currently, but I also want to see the corresponding folder(s)).

I used this tablet for many years and got lots of bookmarks on my browser, but recently its antenna stopped working. I did some research and found out you can export the bookmarks from firefox even if you cant connect to the internet to use the sync functionality. I rooted the phone, copied the browser.db file from firefox and exported the bookmarks table with SQLite Browser. I read on some verry old (6-8 Years ago) threads on this forum that they imported the bookmarks.csv they got from the db in excel, then modified it in some sense and then exported it to a html file to import that in firefox. I did everything to where i have the whole table in excel, only need to know what i need to modify in it.
