Hello,

Last night I went to bed and all my bookmarks were there. Today I woke up and all the bookmarks are gone on my laptop and the open tabs, add-ons etc. I am signed in. Restoration does not help (last backup is with today date). But on my smartphone I see them in bookmarks-> desktop bookmarks. How do I save them? I really don´t want to lose them.

Thanks a lot for any advice,

Cyril

I want to find and display the location of a single bookmark in the entire bookmark folder. I can search my bookmarks using key words and display the bookmarks with the search terms. However, what I want to know is which bookmark folder the found bookmark is located in. Is there a way to identify that. Thanks.

I have a bookmarks menu link on the bookmarks toolbar. When I save a new bookmark to one of the folders it does not appear. It does appear when I click on the saved history icon. However, if I open the bookmarks sidebar from the history icon and navigate to the same folder, the new bookmark appears but it is missing many other bookmarks that are in the other folder.. I can also save the bookmark to the toolbar and it appears there. Also I can cut an paste the bookmark from the toolbar to the folder. I've tried disabling add-ons and that doesn't fix the problem. There clearly are two sets of bookmarks. How do point Firefox to the one I want?

I clicked on my Win 7 Mozilla shortcut. A message came up that an upgrade was being installed and the browser would start in a moment. Upon completion a tab was open on Mozilla.org stating all my bookmarks were gone but could be retrieved from my Mozilla account after logging in. 1. Prior to now, I didn't have an account until I created one to ask for help. 2. It was actually a Downgrade for whatever reason. I was running version 73 or higher and now the version with no bookmarks is ver 63ESR.

There is no Old Data folder on my desktop and if I try Restore bookmarks it asks if I want to restore 11 bookmarks. I had well over 100 bookmarks before this disaster.

My bookmark is fine except for the "simcity" sub dir. That sub dir is just plain gone. The dir and all the entrys in that dir are also gone. I found the lost sub dir in an earlier saved *.json. Is there any way to add that sub dir from the earlier bookmark to the current bookmark?

I have re-installed my windows on my PC. Then after installing firefox I've signed in with my account. All my extensions are restored ind installed automatically. But there is no any of my bookmarks. I'm sure that is was synced before installing windows. However, now I don't have my bookmarks. Is there any way to check from server side, were my bookmarks saved or not. Maybe they are still on server but cannot sync to my PC?

Hi, I just did a clean reinstallation of windows and it deleted all my files. I installed Firefox and logged in to sync bookmarks and tabs, but I realized I hadn't activated tab sync. So in a desperate attempt to restore them, I tried the Restore option in Archives. And it restored to the Firefox version before i had synchronized my bookmarks, the bookmarks was gone and before I could react it had already synchronized. Now my bookmarks are gone aswell. I tried looking for a profile in the Appdata\Roaming Firefox folder but I can't find any profile from before the wipe.

Is there anything I can do to get my bookmarks back? Or are they completely lost?

Desperately needed help please.

Just upgraded to latest version of Firefox v 78.0.2 (64 bit) and I've lost all my Bookmarks!

All I can find in Bookmarks are the pages I seem to have looked at in this version of Firefox and nothing else. Work my way through various suggestions in the Help section but I still can't find my Bookmarks, I hate to say this but it looks like I've overwritten th bookmarksfile and somehow deleted everything, but I know I didn't consciously do this.

I'd be eternally grateful if anybody could help me with this problem please.

(Troubleshooting information doesn't seem to have worked.)

Thanks in advance.
