Firefox was working slowly, so I did a "refresh". This process was NOT supposed to delete my bookmarks, history, passwords, etc -- but they're all gone. I also tried to restore the bookmarks from a couple days ago but the browser said it couldn't access the file. Any ideas how to get this data back?!?

I going to copy over Win 7 docs etc to a new Passport Storage unit Ext Side-Drive. I Saved FF bookmarks in my Win - 7 Doc Folder. When I start up my Win 10 new computer, will it migrate from the Ext Hard drive ok over in the Windows -10 Doc folder saved in my older computer and open ok to be pasted into the bookmarks dropdown on FF ? I had a lot of trouble going from XP to Win 7 last time with Firefox and didn't all move over for me.

Thanks.

I often open URLs by clicking on them with my mouse wheel button. They open as a new tab in the background, just as configured in the settings.

However, when I do the same in the urlbar dropdown, the url opens in a new tab, but this tab gets focused. This is in particular annoying when you want to open multiple urls, because you just lost focus on the urlbar and need to open it up again, for the next one.

Is there a way to get the urlbar to behave just like everything else in Firefox and like the settings suggest?

Bookmarks not imported under my account when I reinstalled Mozila on a new Windows machine

Hi all,

I reinstalled windows on my laptop and I did not backed up my Mozilla bookmarks, because I have an account and I am signed in. Chrome stores everything under my account and restores it all (forms, credentials, bookmarks) into the new browser, when I log into my account, so this is why I did not back up in Mozilla.

When I reinstalled mozilla on the new OS, and logged into my account, my bookmarks are completely gone. Is there a database that could restore my bookmarks? I had hundreds of them, most of them using for work and it would be a tremendous help if I could recover them.

I tried accessing my account and see if there's an option to restore. No luck. I tried going to logins & passwords to see any settings that might help. No luck. I tried to search on other devices that I use, for Mozilla bakups. No luck.

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Ever since I deleted my history, Bookmarks will not allow me to bookmark a page. When I click "Bookmark this page," nothing happens. The Star in the address bar is not highlighted and when I click it, it doesn't respond. When I checked my Preferences, everything is setup correctly. I don't know how long this has been happening, but I noticed it the other day. I have refreshed Firefox, and it didn't help. I have the newest version of Firefox. I only mention the deleting history in the beginning of the post for context. Thanks.

If I don't want the same Firefox bookmarks on every device, do I need to create different accounts for each device using Firefox?

I avoided creating an account because I didn't want one pc to override others. Now suddenly my office pc has had the bookmarks taken for ransom because I did not want what they were offering of syncing all my devices.

Will my bookmarks reappear if I create an account for that pc?
