Hello,

My old computer crashed, and I had to switch to a new computer. But all of my Firefox bookmarks that I to years to collect are on my old computer. Is there any way that I could retrieve the bookmarks from the hard drive?

Thank you

Bookmark Restore ignoring order and location in folders

Following an incident with Firefox Sync, I needed to restore my bookmarks. I have a little over 700 bookmarks across 15-25+ folders at mostly 2-3 levels deep but up to 5 levels. All but a handfull of these are all in the bookmarks toolbar.

I have a backup json of everything for restoration. However, when I do restore, everything is messed up: all the bookmarks are there, and all the folders are there with their structure preserved (subfolders in the right folders), but every bookmark has been pulled out of the folder structure and into the toolbar, so all folders are empty of actual bookmarks. This includes taking bookmarks from folders in the bookmark menu. Folders seem to be in the right order, and some bookmarks are, but most bookmarks are in the wrong place and order. Since most of my bookmarks were in folders, I really do not have it in me to put them all back unless I absolutely have to (assuming I can even remember what goes where).

Opening the json in Firefox, selecting "Raw Data" and "Pretty Print", it is clear the json file correctly preserved folder structure and bookmark placement exactly as it was before. Thus, something must be going wrong in how it is being read.

I have tried different restore points with the same outcome. I have sync disabled and have tried removing existing bookmarks first, clearing data, and deleting places.sqlite (as per related help threads) to no avail. Integrity check runs without error. I have also tried on a different OS (Windows 10 and Manjaro KDE) with the same results. I have not seen any other posts with this specific issue.

Would it only work correctly if the export was an html file? Is there anything I can do, like trying to modify the json? Is this expected behavior or a bug to fix? Please advise.

Whenever I bookmarked a page, Firefox always asked me where I want to save the bookmark. Since Firefox updated a few days ago, it just saves every bookmark to last folder I chose but this is inconvenient because I have to then edit the bookmark to save it in the folder where I want it. Is there a setting that I can change so Firefox will again ask me where I want to save a bookmark when I try to bookmark a page?

Thanks in advance.

My Firefox bookmark menus are often taller than my screen.

When I select a bookmark well down in the current menu by typing a letter, for example "T", the menu display scrolls down to the first matching choice, but that choice can be mostly covered by the down-caret indicating more choices further down. I can see the top of the highlight for the current choice, but I can't read the text of the choice.

Not a big deal, but I'm hoping it's an easy fix. Thank you!

My desktop PC broke (hard drives are OK). I got a new PC with Windows 11 and the former C: drive is now the G: drive.

I installed Firefox and I need to get all my bookmarks back. I can find my old profile on the G: drive in .../appdata/local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles and I tried replacing the new Firefox profile on C: with the old one from the G: drive, but Firefox just keeps creating a new one and ignoring the old one.

There are years of bookmarks there I'd really like to get them back.

Help, Please?

Hey everyone!

I had a quick, and maybe weird, question to ask... is there any way to have two separate bookmark folders that are complete mirrors of each other? For example, if I added a bookmark to one folder, then the other folder would also have the bookmark added to it.

I sure hope the answer is yes! haha. It would really help my bookmark organization OCD! :D

Thanks everyone!
