I have exactly the same problem found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1261967 BUT, I'm using firefox 67.0.2 on linux (opensuse leap 15.0) and I have no antivirus running. Also the workaround does not fix the problem. I tried to rename the logins.json corrupted into logins.json (I think the file is still ok, since I looked inside with a text editor (Kate) and I found all my saved "hostname"). No way to reload my saved logins into firefox. Every time I restart firefox with the correct logins.json (the old one renamed) it does not connect to sync and it told me to re-connect to sync. Then, it rename the logins.json and create another file with no saved logins. Please help Thanks

I am running Win 10 with Firefox v58.0.1

Every day, at least once per day, I loose about half of my bookmarks. Most often it happens overnight, when I come back to my desktop in the morning. I rarely shutdown at night, just leave everything up and running. When this happens, I have to go to "import and backup"/restore/then pick a restore date and reinstall the bookmarks. I always get a message afterwards saying "Unable to process the backup file", but the bookmarks are restored.

Today, I must have lost my bookmarks at least four times. What can I do to stop this from happening? It is a time waster and annoying.

After restarting my computer, I got a new FF web page and ALL my bookmarks as well as history have been deleted.

How do I get them ALL back?

I have tried every solution on the Mozilla Help section - I cant do a Restore I have a very old version of backups - 2016

The online help system is going around and around in circles not giving any solutions. 4 hours of trying to sort this out is ridculous.

I really do not want to have to move to Chrome, I far prefer Mozilla, but I can not afford to loose more time sorting this problem out. If not resolved here, I will reluctantly have to restart all my bookmarks in Chrome.

I need all my bookmarks - some are work related.

Please Help

All my Bookmarks and Tabs have vanished after the Firefox 82.0.3 update yesterday. Related? Searching for hours, including Firefox site and cannot find solution. I noticed 'Restore Previous Session' was recommended as a 'fix' at some links. Mine is grayed out...if that matters. I have VERY important bookmarks, including links related to Hurricane Sally destruction to my home. PLEASE HELP! I'm not very computer savvy, so 'instructions for dummies' would be helpful. PS...I was able to bookmark this page, but at least 100 bookmarks vanished. Tabs & Bookmarks are fine with Safari and Chrome. Unfortunately, I rarely used those and did not migrate most Bookmarks to them. Lesson learned. Thanks in advance John

Hello,

I've been using my own Sync 1.5 server since January without having any issue until this week.

I am unable to sync my clients, getting the "Sync encountered an error while synching: Unknown error, Sync will try again automatically."

Here's the log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8836193

The problem seems to happen at line 101 (on pastebin).

Here's some more info about my setup.

Syncserver 1.5.2 installed on a local server running on Linux.

I have 1 Windows client, 2 Linux clients. None of them can sync. All uses Firefox 38.0.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Phil

I lost bookmarks of all my life / Need Help to repair them please

Hello,

I'm a little angry right now because I have lost bookmarks of all my life and I need your help to repair it please? I don't know why but somehow, Firefox which I use for years ; (Thx by the way) ; corrupted my data on the run...? I started Firefox again but, no extension, no bookmarks, etc.. I Have kept a backup of all this FF profile, just in case.

My 1st step was to try to get a new profile a import my previous data from Firefox Sync - but somehow , I'm angry at myself again for not understanding how FF Sync work, no data from FFSync updated my data - It stayed like this for a long time , like a new profile without data (I used Xmarks before so I thought it was replacing it).

2nd step: I tried to load all bookmarks-xxx.jsonlz4 located in the bookmarkbackups folder from the FF bookmarks tools (Import / export ; etc). FF seems to see all the bookmarks but can't load them. What is really important here is that FF backed up files for like a month and even my oldest file is unusable  : bookmarks-2019-01-19-xxx.jsonlz4 !!

3rd step: I tried to get my data back from FF files, in bookmarks files like bookmarks-2019-01-19-xxx.jsonlz4 from the bookmarkbackups folder. Someone pointed me to use the https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html website but all the jsonlz4 files in the bookmarkbackups folder seems corrupted (or the format of files changed and his tool may need to be updated ?)

Example : File name: bookmarks-2019-01-19_2392_mKZssqkWMZt+Mqt-HOi68A==.jsonlz4; Size: 283114; last modified 18/01/2019 à 12:38:42 (failed JSON parsing: SyntaxError: Unexpected token in JSON at position 21928) Note: To try a different file, reload this page Can't seem to acces the step 2 part even after waiting longer

4th step: tried to get old Backup of my FF Profiles with Windows 10 Shadow Copy System, "Shadow Explorer" or "System Restore Explorer" Found 3 backup wich I restored also, all bookmarks seems to get the same problem. I think I'll need to look in to this because It's not official Windows tools, but I'm really disapointed here.. I think I'll put them on md5sum tools to compare them for a start.

5th step : tried to repair my <places.sqlite> a (80MB files) which I found renamed to sqlite.corrupt. With the help of http://www.froebe.net/blog/2015/05/27/error-sqlite-database-is-malformed-solved/ , all I can get is a empty database at the end, but Im not a sqlite expert so if anyone has an idea :-)

So please, any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. (and sorry for my english)

No matter what I try based on internet searches, and on this forum, I can't get my browser to save any history. After I close the closer at end of day, it erases everything. I even created a new profile.... no good. Uninstalled and re-installed.... no good. Places integrity checker says the database is sane. I checked my system care software and disabled any privacy sweeps months ago. My older (a few years back) firefox used to save everything....

I have had this problem for a few months now and eventually just stopped using Firefox. I had tried the various suggested fixes to no avail. - rebooted - tried running in safe mode with no antivirus programs - renamed the places.sqlite file - I deleted Firefox, downloaded and installed it again with no success. I am concerned that not everything was removed on the Windows 10 uninstall process. - Have checked my Antivirus (Bit defender) logs and don't see any Firefox files locked/etc by Bitdefender

I would appreciate any suggestions that you might have. Regards Bill
