How can I get back the bookmarks that were deleted on the recent upgrade? I've tried system restore to the day before the upgrade, but the folder is empty and the new "bookmark" process is a mess. I'd hate to lose the many references stored in the previous collection.

I have searched and tried everything, but I cannot delete old bookmarks. I have tried to click on the blue bookmark star, delete from the edit tab, open all Bookmarks and try to right click and delete. Nothing happens, but I can add new bookmarks. The bookmarks window does not have an organize tab to manage the links that way either. Is there a glitch in the system for macbooks?

Whenever I try to add a bookmark in FF (81.0.2, 32-bit), the default folder for the bookmark is "Other Bookmarks", with the option to save the bookmark to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder (which is my preference).

How can I get FF to default to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder when saving a bookmark?

I just did an upgrade to 81.0.2. All of my bookmarks disappeared. Fortunately I was able to retrieve the last window but I am unable to create new bookmarks. Whether I right click on the tab to bookmark or Ctrl+D to bookmark, I get a window that says New Bookmark with options of Save or Cancel. However, the only option I can choose is Cancel. This is not good.

The mobile bookmarks folder is nowhere to be found on the desktop app. When I bookmark a page on mobile, Firefox desktop doesn't show it in the "all bookmarks" menu, I tried searching but it doesn't find it. The mobile app doesn't show it either, it only shows the "desktop bookmarks" folder and the single pages that I have bookmarked on mobile. I have attached some screenshots that better explain this issue. I would be grateful if someone could help me.

I foolishly clicked on Refresh and when it was done I had lost all bookmarks and history. I am at my wits' end trying to get back to where I was and will never do that again. Considering I am 80 years old I know for a fact there are probably a lot of things I won't be doing again but I would like to just go back to where I was. I am no longer able to get into Facebook which isn't going to cause the Earth to spin off its axis but I have several friends I really enjoy staying in touch with and it isn't possible to even enter FB now. I have tried everything, read all directions, followed all orders, jumped through all hoops (great Kodak moment for those of you with cameras) and I have failed.

I know that someone here, probably many of you, are more knowledgeable with the way this works and I would just enjoy being able to contact these two friends and get their emails, the FB connection isn't all that important. Now my question is and feel free to laugh but could this Refresh have caused some glitch in the innards of something or other that would cause this problem?

If any of you could help out a senior here I would be most appreciative.

Thank you for even reading my whining and begging plea.

My laptop died - but have FULL back up on ACRONIS cloud ... I want to find & restore my Firefox BOOKMARKS/ favorites etc. FIREFOX creates a PROFILE that contains all the data... BUT its hard to find!!??

I know location is USERname>AppData> Roaming>Mozilla>Firefox> PROFILES

BUT ... on my NEW Laptop when I go down through C:Drive hierarchy I cant see "AppData" If I search I can find ... BUT I cant actually locate via USER NAME.... Is this to do with HIDDEN FILES???

So when I go to my CLOUD BACKup I have the same problem. I can search & see ...but cant find in the hierarchy so I can recover those files & re-install on my new laptop... Any ideas where these hidden files are located?

Any ideas?

Thx for any help Cheers Keith

Thanks to a problem with Yahoo taking over my search functions, I had to eliminate some add-ons. Unfortunately, this meant that my browser history, saved passwords, and bookmarks were effectively eliminated. When I try to restore the bookmarks it can see the files but I get the "unable to load file" error.

Any suggestions?

My account randomly stopped allowing me to add new bookmarks. This started about a month ago (maybe less). I have the account on multiple devices and can't add bookmarks from any of them. I have refreshed Firefox and deleted the recommended files, but nothing has fixed the issue.

Hello Community

Do hope someone can help?

Have tried all suggestions in Support area on topic: Lost/Recover Bookmarks. Also spoke to Windows Support and was told to call Mozilla Firefox Technical Support. I've been unable to find a number.

I had a Windows update around the same time as a Firefox update, May/June, only realised all saved bookmarks prior to June 2020 have disappeared. This has never happened before.

Urgently need to find out if there's a method of retrievel or have it confirmed that all of these very important bookmarks are permanently lost.

Thank you in advance

I went to "Show All Bookmarks" and searched for a bookmark. I want to know what folder I put the bookmark in. I can't figure out how to do so.

Someone answered this question before:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274811

"You can open this bookmark in a tab, possible in "Work Offline mode". If you click the highlighted star on the location bar then you can check via the Folder line where in the folder tree this bookmark is located (second down arrow and use the scroll bar)."

How do I get into "Work Offline mode"? Also, why is this so difficult?
