I am running Firefox 3.6.18 on Mac OS 10.4.11. My precious bookmarks have disappeared. I find that the j.son documents in the bookmark back up file are blank. I have tried to access the places.sqlite files in profiles but they appear as jumbled code (some bookmarks from Safari are however there).Does anyone have any ideas how I can retrieve my bookmarks? I'm not technical so layman's terms would be appreciated.

Selecting "Show All Bookmarks" under "Bookmarks" opens a window that seems unrelated to all the listings of bookmarks that I have made. Why?

After clicking "Bookmarks," the drop-down, headed by "Show All Bookmarks," lists all website addresses that I have selected to be added to the list by bookmarking them. … (read more)

After clicking "Bookmarks," the drop-down, headed by "Show All Bookmarks," lists all website addresses that I have selected to be added to the list by bookmarking them. It is now a huge list and I want to be able to manage it. The "Show All Bookmarks" page appears to have no connection with this list. How do I get the data into the "Show All Bookmarks" page?

This morning I opened firefox as usual and found that a sidebar for bookmarks on the left side of this page. I did not request this to open and I want it removed from my computer. I do not like the way it uses up the space on the page. I have tried to open firefox in safe mode but his did not clear it. If I can not remove this sidebar I will want to close firefox.

New Win8 laptop, latest Firefox. Since XP in '03 I've always run 2 users on the computer - Admin (for installing apps, etc) and a non-admin user for everyday use. Is there any way to keep bookmarks 'common' between the 2 users? (When I'm 'Admin' I want access to the same bookmarks).

It appears my user profile has changed somehow.

I am running Vista SP2 Home Premium with Firefox 17. My settings are the same as the were yesterday (the last time Firefox worked properly), but when I opened Firefox this morning my bookmarks are missing and I cannot add new bookmarks. Also, when attempting to view my history in "Library" nothing is listed, but if I let my cursor sit on "History" without clicking on it (i.e. without opening "Library"), the most recent pages I visited yesterday are listed.

UPDATE: Forgot to mention that none of my toolbars are present and the Add-ons Manager under "Firefox\Add-ons" does not show any plugins, whereas all plugins are shown by accessing "Enabled plugins" via "Troubleshooting Information."

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to import bookmarks from my Safari 5.1.7 to Firefox 18.0 within my Mac OS X 10.6.8. I backed up and then deleted the out of date Firefox bookmarks (don't know where they came from when I installed Firefox last month), made an .html file from my Safari bookmarks, followed the directions herein to the letter, and the Safari bookmarks did not transfer.
