firefox has deleted most of about 150 bookmarks, and one of the three bookmark folders. I check the troubleshooting site and it said that the bookmarks could be recovered from a backup using the RESTORE function, but this has not worked. Any advice on how I can recover the bookmarks? I used Firefox 87.0 and Windows 7 on a desktop.

Thanks -- Steve

For some reason url search suggests sites that I have not bookmarked but have visited in the past. I often delete history + data, and even with delete and restart the sites popup in the suggestions. The only way I have found to remove the suggestions is to set browser.urlbar.suggest.bookmark to false. What is causing this and how can I fix this? I'm using Firefox 87.0 64bit.

The Other Bookmarks folder is located on the far right side of the toolbar instead of being a movable folder. This happened after Firefox crashed and I lost all my preferences (any help with that?) I tried to use the method that jscher2000 recommended when I asked this before but the only thing it did was remove the folder entirely from the toolbar.

I have recently migrated back to Firefox from Chrome. I followed the instructions to import my bookmarks and forgot that I was logged into my work chrome account, so those bookmarks were imported. When I followed the same procedure using my personal google account, the procedure did not work. Is there a way to import bookmarks from multiple google accounts into Firefox? Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

3-26-21: I just upgraded to the latest version of Firefox and NONE of my bookmarks are available. I've tried all the tips I've found and nothing works. I tried to Restore Bookmarks and get the error: Unable to process the backup file. This is a terrible version of Firefox. I need my Bookmarks. Where did they go?? How do I get them back? I am not a computer expert. I am a user of your product. I should not have to jump through hoops just to get my browser set up the way I had it before. Right now it is a big mess. I've used Firefox for years when other browsers are available. I will dump Firefox if I have to but I would prefer to solve this problem.

So lately my bookmark page option doesn't work, it simply doesn't. Pages don't get saved, nor can I delete the ones I already have had saved. I don't know what's going on

I tried reinstalling the whole Firefox and removing all add-ons, but it didn't help.

anyone got an idea as to what may I try to fix this?

The bookmarks toolbar isn't showing any bookmarks. I searched for help documents and did everything I was instructed to do but the icons are still not showing. If I attempt to right click the toolbar, it doesn't recognize and doesn't give me a pop up menu to choose from. I'm baffled.
