All bookmarks & history disappeared after upgrading to Ver. 22 and bookmark backup folder contains nothing from before the upgrade. Where are they?

This morning my Windows 7 installed the latest update. When I booted up again afterward, Internet Explorer (which I hate!) was my default browser and Firefox Ver. 21 said it needed to be updated to 22. I did this, and all of my browsing history and bookmarks are gone. I found my bookmark backup folder but it is empty. It's as if I never had a previous version of Firefox and am completely starting fresh. Any suggestions on how I can recover my bookmarks?

I deleted bookmarks today by mistake and was hoping to recover them. To this end, I was looking at the instructions on how to find my profile. When I selected bookmarkbackups it shows folders that are not able to be opened with any application I have, and when I select places.sqlite I get a preview folder, which I am unable to open with any application I have. So I have two questions 1. Can I ever recover deleted bookmarks, and 2. how can I open the folder to show my history and bookmarks?

Simply I need to reinstall the Linux O.S. on the main FIrefox Sync computer, changing distro.

I would like if it is possible to recreate the same Main configuration on the new Firefox installation without loosing all the stored Sync data and keep synchronized all the others PCs.

How can I do that?

Thanks Marinerdrums

Really not sure if there is a better way of putting it. Basically my browser is registering a bookmark, but nothing more than it's name; no location, nothing (see image url: http://tinypic.com/r/2n1z4x/5). It can't be deleted, or moved or anything. It's not really much of a problem more than any bookmarks below it don't show up on the toolbar menu, but I'd rather not have it if possible.

Seeing as the bookmarks file is actually readable in Notepad++ I think this is the broken link (given the entry before it is the bookmark placed directly above it on the toolbar):

{"index":2,"title":"Tags","id":4,"parent":1,"dateAdded":1357947259755000,"lastModified":1357947259755000,"type":"text/x-moz-place-container","root":"tagsFolder","children":[]}

Assuming this is the issue, would I be fine in simply deleting this from the file or would a different course of action be advised? Would backing up then restoring clear the issue?

Here's the issue. I got a new PC at work today, but before I did, I set up Sync on the old one and synched my bookmarks and history to the cloud.

Now I have a new PC, but when I try to set up sync to retrieve my bookmarks, it either asks me to pair the device or enter the recovery key. I don't have the old device to enter the pairing information, and I never got a "recovery key" when I did the initial install.

How do I get a recovery key sent to my eMail address?!??!?

I backed up my MacBook Pro 11 OS X Lion system with Time Machine and then got a new MacBook Pro 13 OS X Mountain Lion system. I can't use Time Machine to restore my system. I was able to drag and drop my files, but I neglected to create an HTML backup of my Firefox bookmarks. Are the automatic .json backups that Firefox made accessible to me on my Time Machine external drive? Can I find one of those backups and restore it to my new laptop? I haven't made any new bookmarks, so overwriting wouldn't be a problem.

I've just installed a Firefox update - following this I logged onto iGoogle in the normal way and found that my bookmarks toolbar has vanished. The bookmarks are still there in the library section but I can't get the bookmarks toolbar to show. I've tried right clicking on an empty part of the tab bar - this shows the bookmarks toolbar is ticked already. How can I restore my bookmarks toolbar please. It's a vital part of my browsing.
