MBP Pro mid 2012, Firefox 79.0, High Sierra 10.13.6

I want to backup my bookmarks. When I do the following, the Library window opens but the Import and Backup button is missing. I've attached a screen shot.

1) Click Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks from the menu bar.

2) In the Library window that opens, click the Import and Backup button in the toolbar.

I am moving to a new MBP so I need to do a backup to import my bookmarks on the new computer.

Thanks for your help

Hello, It seems that my Firefox Browser upgraded itself and has a different look now, precisely speaking, my browser looks like beta version now. Earlier in the past, I downloaded Beta but I was disappointed because I COULD NOT FIND OR SEE MY BOOKMARKS.. Sadly and annoyingly, same thing happened now! I have lost all my bookmarks and bookmark folders. I would be grateful if you could please help me get my bookmarks back. Regards, HAKAN [email]

I recently refreshed Firefox, in the process of which all my bookmarks disappeared. When I try to manually add bookmarks, Firefox will not allow any bookmarks. When I attempted to add the information from the Old Firefox Data icon onscreen, it still refused to add or restore my bookmarks. I have checked my profile page and there is only 1 profile shown, so I cannot enable any other profile. Any ideas?

Hello everyone, So I have a problem when I create a folder in my bookmark bar. I create a folder by category (unnamed for aesthetics). Once I have classified my favorites in these different folders after reopening Firefox, all my favorites are in a single folder. I specify that all these favorites were mostly imported from Chrome but that the problem persists with favorites added from firefox

As a researcher and writer I'm constantly on the web, and have many downloaded book marks that were organized by folders on the Menu bar. But this old laptop seems to crash frequently when I'm using Firefox. After the most recent crash most of the folders had vanished - three did not.

How can I restore those missing folders to the menu bar? Redoing them is a possibility, but would take a great deal of time.

Thanks,

DMS

thread is over here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1299043

I am responding to jscher2000, who posted to my question a short while ago about the loss of my bookmarks and being unable to restore. Thanks very much for the fast response. I checked the Places Database section of Troubleshooting, and as you suggested it does say "The places.sqlite database is sane", and "The favicons.sqlite database is sane". So I assume that's good? Now what do I do? Again, many thanks for the assistance.

Where are my saved websites saved? Also, am I able to "share" the file over my LAN? I have a desktop PC and a laptop connected to my network. What I would like to do is make it so whether I save (or bookmark?) a site on the laptop or desktop it is available on both. Does this make sense? If I need to do a better job explaining just let me know. Currently, I am successfully sharing the IE 'Favorites' folder so the links are always in sync and the same links are available on both of my machines.

Hi, please could I have some help with the following?

I had firefox installed on the same partition as the windows I booted from. Due to an error this partition would no longer boot and I had to install windows and firefox clean on a seperate drive.

I've managed to get the partition working again and can access all the files on it again. Unfortunately when i load up the firefox on the previously failed partition it appears to load up the same version as I installed most recently. None of my old book marks are in the menu which is what I am trying to access. I've looked on here for help and the following don't seem to apply to me...

- There's no profiles folder in the old partition so I can't find Places.sqlite. - Troubleshooting>Show Folder points to the application data on the new install drive - There doesn't appear to be backup.json files on the old partition

So my question is is there anywhere on the old partition you can think where my old bookmarks may be stored?

Any suggestions would be appreciated Many thanks JD

In the previous versions of Firefox, when you click on the star near the url, you can add this website on your favorites. Another click and you can edit some fields about this bookmark, like the url, the folder, etc...

But with FF17, the Description field is no longer there. You can only find it when managing your bookmarks, that is not really user friendly.

Is there a way to add again the description field when clicking on the gold star? It's very useful for adding notes about this website, and it's also synch with addins like Xmarks

I accidentally replaced my backup with the current bookmarks while trying to import from it. The original bookmarks were not present in Bookmark Backup in Profiles so I used Recuva for recovery. Now, Firefox gives the 'Unable to process backup file' thingy.

System Restore hasn't helped either.

I have Firefox 12 with the Sidebar Bookmark Selector 2.3 app. They've been running together for atleast a few years now. Starting last week when I open my bookmarks I'll get underlines going through any that I run over with the mouse in an upwards fashion. If I go up 10 bookmarks, there will be ten underlines. If I go back down through them, they all erase. What the heck is going on?? Any google search with the words "Firefox" and "underlining" will only bring you to an answer of going into tools, options, colors, and unchecking the underlining box. This is not it. This is driving me mad! Any suggestions? I don't even know at this point if it has anything to do with either one of them at this point.

I recently began using Xmarks with Firefox 16 on a Windows 7 platform. I got some sort of an error message (I think from Xmarks) regarding "Bookmarks". I clicked on the message to fix the problem and zapp all my bookmarks were gone. I found my "bookmarksbackup" profile file. but can't get it to open. I suppose that I need a JSON viewer. I downloaded a opensource viewer that looked good, but still don't get anything that remotely resembles my old bookmarks. I thought that I might be the victim of a virus, but I'm probably just the victim of my own ignorance.
