I lost a whole Ext4 partition, however it appears that there is chances to recover raw data from my disk. There is a very important profile within the lost partition that contains very important bookmarks. Now if I want to use file carving techniques for recovering the lost data, which formats or text patterns may help to identify the data? Can I specify lz4 and sqlite formats? what are the other formats? Which text pattern can I use to recover the bookmark files using grep tool over raw disk data?

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

I am personally studying the subject of "Neuroplasticity" for my own further education? I had a quite serious accident in 2012, which unfortunately left me with "slight" brain damage? I use the word slight to describe it, as that was the word "experts" used? How tragically mistaken they were in using that word? hahaha !!!! Anyway, some specific parts of my brain made me a physical cripple? By strength of will & great physical effort I was able to turn the clock back in my mind to an earlier era in my life? About 20 or 30 years? Although I was 65+ when I left hospital, visits to a friend in The Philippines, & great deal of help patience & effort from her enabled me to get my mind & body back to the level of fitness that I thought I had immediately before the accident? Which I perceived or imagined was approximately age 45 to 50? Anyway, more on this subject for anybody who has sufficient interest to write & enquire? All that I need to know now is how to create a bookmark or file containing only "NEUROPLASTCITY" items or website links?

I'd like for my Top Sites page to just display my Saved Sites or Favorites. But Firefox keeps adding Recently Visited Sites to that window. I read that I can stop that by deleting some History, but I don't want to delete any History. How do I keep all my History intact and also stop Recently Visited Sites from showing up automatically in my Top Sites window?

my bookmarks list chopped off half of them, then says use control shift b to see all bookmarks. When I do that another box opens on left side of page and it's empty and no matter what I hit on there nothing shows up. I want either all my bookmarks back or at least be able to condense what I do have so at least can see and use the most important ones. I already deleted the json file, nothing happened.

I'm using Firefox version 73.0.1 (64-bit) (which is currently the latest) on a Mac. Whenever I try to access Google Drive Starred or Recent via bookmarks, I get that error message. This used to work until a few days ago, so I assume some update broke it. I tried to refresh Firefox and delete the cookies, but that didn't work. Private windows don't work either. Other browsers like Safari work great.

Ok so my most updated bookmarks were on my new desktop and my phone. I had to travel and took my old laptop and phone. I thought I could update my laptop with the new bookmarks by synching it with my phone but I was wrong. Now on all devices I have my old bookmarks that was on laptop and lost all of my new bookmarks.

Is it possible to undo a synch so I can get my new bookmark's back?

Does firefox have a customer service number?

I can't believe all of my new bookmarks are gone. It's devasting

I have more than 4000 bookmarks in folders, subfolders and sub-subfolders. The bookmark-saving-window is toooo small.

Hello everybody. I have saved several thousand bookmarks, and often they are added. I have 20 folders in the bookmark sidebar. In each of these main-folders there are 4 - 25 subfolders and in there sub-subfolders etc. To save new bookmarks I type Ctrl + D, to open the bookmark-saving-window. Than I have to scroll, scroll, open folder, scroll, scroll, open sub-folder, scroll, etc.

Imagine, your Windows file manager would only be so small, you would go crazy. It would be better, to be able to enlarge the bookmark-saving-window. Or even bring it to screen size with one click. This would be a great relief for everyone who frequently saves bookmarks. And nothing would change for the others.

Another point: I often save several new bookmarks in one folder. In the bookmark memory, the folder that was used previously, is never displayed. So you have to click again, to show the last used folder. It would make more sense, always to display the last used folder. Then you could save the bookmark with 'Enter' and only have to click on if you want a different folder.

I'm definitely not the only one who saves many bookmarks. But here in the forum I have not found a post that deals with this problem.

Thank you very much and best regards, wkijsa.
