I need help. I have a number of old bookmark files saved and I am not able to get the saved files to load. I try to load these and they come up as text. no active or clickable links. I really need to get this issue fixed as I am trying to locate certain things and don't recall where I originally located them online. Can someone maybe call me and see if they can help me. I will explain in further detail then. Thank you so much.

Bookmarks Missing After Laptop Sent in for Repair

Hi all,

I have had an account signed in to Firefox browser that held tens and tens of bookmarks. I had all my bookmarks linked to my profile before I sent it in for repair.

I received my laptop a couple of days ago and I can see the web history going back to when I purchased the laptop, but there are no bookmarks (save a single one) from before I sent in my laptop for repair.

I looked at the about:profiles but one is a default profile with no history and one is default-release with my web history (and one bookmark). Neither have my the entirety of my bookmarks.

Please let me know if there's anything I can do to recover my BMs.

Thanks.

Because FireFox has been running so slowly, a few minutes ago I chose to Refresh FireFox. The web page said bookmarks and other things would be preserved, but after the refresh FireFox has no bookmarks. I have tried the Restore option under Import and Backups on the Library panel and chose the most recent listing (dated today), but FireFox says "Unable to process the backup file". It also can't process any other, earlier, entry listed.

Is there anything I can do to try to get my bookmarks back, or has FireFox totally hosed me?

Thanks,

Hi,

I have many important work-related bookmarks associated with Mozilla. When last update came on 20th October 2020, Mozilla crashed all of sudden and not at all opening, so again downgraded to version 8.01. After I lost all my bookmarks data which I need them desperately. I tried unistalling and re-installed & tried to fetch my old data but no fruitful result yet. Kindly help me to get back my data.

I've tried every solution already on this forum. I've gone from 1) never seeing any history or being able to save a bookmark, to 2) being able to save them and have history while the browser is open (they'd vanish when I'd close it), to 3) now history and bookmarks will stay if I close the browser, but as soon as my computer is turned off and on again, they are gone. So I guess there's progress being made, but I still would like to have a fully-functioning browser. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times, hoping that would fix it. Please help.

Hi group, over the years I encounterd sevaral times that my tabs were gone after a restart Since (I guess) version 60 this has not happened again so I thought it was fixed, untill today

By accident I closed Firefox, and after it had restarted all my tabs were gone, despite the fact that I have "restore previous" set in my preferences

I would like to hear If there is a way to save these tabs outside FF and how to do that

20 Dec 2020--- Last night my PC was updated by both Firefox and Windows 10. I have no idea which order it occurred. The bottom line is I lost all my previous Firefox books marks also lost access to my Pocket account. When I went of get on my PC it was hung up. I finally was able to login in to the machine. It took a long time for it to go through the windows up date. When it did Window had changed all by browser setting for BING to be my browser. I spent time trying to clean up that mess. When I got to Firefox, it opened like I had never be in it before. When I did get logged in to the account and Firefox opened I had No Book Marks. While, working on the help request I check my pocket (I really love that Feature) and I was prompted to sign in and did. I behave like I had never accessed Pockets. I tried 3 times to use my account information and got user information is invalid (It's been the same since I started using pockets . I be weeks fixing the book marks and may never get all the Pocket stuff back.

I have a Laptop that uses Firefox. I checked it to see if there was any (silly stuff with it) and both bookmarks and pocket content have been available on it. The check show the bookmarks appear to 100% ok. There is no pocket icon on the laptop and the icon on the PC directs me to create an account or sign in my email and password are the same to login for Firefox and Pocket. Any help to restore both features would be helpful and how to prevent or decrease the chance of it happening again!!!!!!!!
