Why has firefox deleted my bookmarks, It's getting as bad as microsoft. Don't ask just screw us over and no answers to fix it. Problem is this bullshit has been going on for years and it is still a problem,why can't this be fixed or stopped. I now have to try and find how to get all my log ins for banking and alot of other important sites. I see below you have some educated guesses, well I don't need guesses I need the problem fixed. I fear downloading from your site as it might destroy more of my system. I don't see no dam window at the top.

How can I get my bookmarks back and stop it happening again.Please.

I then found a folder on the desktop labeled Old Firefox Data and I tried to restore by going to bookmarks, show all bookmarks, restore, choose file, and then adding in the bookmark backup file from the folder on the desktop (ends in jsonlz4). Unfortunately this didn't work. I would appreciate help....I have alot of bookmarks! Thank you!

We have one desktop with two users. Previously, we were both able to have individual/different Firefox bookmarks in the toolbar when we each logged into our separate desktop accounts. Now, Firefox is only showing one persons bookmarks on both desktop accounts at sign on. How can we get back to our own individual/different bookmarks on Firefox?

I have two bookmarks tagged with `tools` and `music`. When I write `tools music` in the browser bar, 4 Google search results appear, followed by one bookmark, the other is not shown at all.

Is there a way to specifically search by tags? Ideally I would like to have both bookmarks appear in front of my suggestions.

thank you.

I just finished installing Ubuntu 20.04. When I started Firefox for the first time, it told me I was using an 'out of date' version and advised me to update. I clicked on OK to do the update and thought it strange when Firefox started that it didn't have my home page. I immediately went to check the settings (now Preferences) and saw that the Home page was gone. I suspected that something had been done with my Firefox settings and checked my Bookmarks only to find them all gone. I don't believe that Firefox development would be so crass / careless as to delete my Bookmarks in this fashion. How can I retrieve them ?

Hello,

since the latest update, all of my saved bookmarks, passwords, history and so on is completely gone. Luckily I could save the profile files on the computer in windows. Firefox was starting in a blank version telling me, that my old profile could not be used anymore.

Therefore I need help to "install" my old profile again to get back my bookmarks and additional information.

Thanks

Hi

For some reason, Firefox changes the order of bookmarks in the adress field. For instance, when I type "yout" to search among my youtube bookmarks, the most recents aren't the first ones suggested. I've noticed this 2-3 weeks ago and I still don't understand why that is. Does anyone know?

I accidentally deleted a single bookmark in a folder in my Toolbar.

So I created a restore point just in case, and then used the restore feature.

So when I restored my bookmarks, it froze firefox.

So I restarted and it restore everything except the toolbar.

The Bookmarks Toolbar is there, it's just empty, and all my extremely important bookmarks in the toolbar just don't exist. I even confirmed that they're gone by adding new things to the Bookmarks Toolbar, every bookmark in it is gone, with all the folders.

I am a designer and these were super important to me, please help, all my internet searches are extremely unhelpful, since they just say to restore, or check if the toolbar is being displayed(it is), the specific bookmarks in the toolbar are gone...
