How can I restore or get back a folder in my bookmarks that had ALOT of favorite sites in it? I was in my bookmarks and accidentally deleted a ENTIRE folder of bookmarks (probably 100 saved websites). I dont remember when the last time I did a BACKUP of my favorites folder and I think that I added websites to the folder just within the past week. How can I get them back? There is no "Recycle bin-type thing to restore from. HELP!

Hello. After a reinstallation of W10, I imported in Firefox the file "bookmarks.html" that I saved before this installation. Usually it works very well, but this time, there are no more bookmarks in my menu after the import than before ! It looks as there was nothing in my file Bookmarks.html, however I am sure that this file is complete because I verified it in Excel (.csv). What happens ?... Thank you by advance to the community !

Good day!

Today I have opened Mozilla Firefox as usual and for some reason, everything was gone, by everything I mean EVERYTHING, no logins, no passwords saved, no bookmarks (I had probably around a thousand of them) no search history, nothing, I was trying to restore my previous session (with more than 100 tabs open... yeah I know) and nothing happened. For some reason the starting page was Yahoo instead of my normal Google search page... but I don't think it was that typical virus that replace everything with Yahoo and makes it impossible to change it back, because I was actually able to change the starting page back to google without any problems and my Malwarebytes didn't detect anything, so I am absolutely baffled as to what happened. I was trying the sync service but it doesn't work at all, nothing is restored. It's almost like someone broke into my account synced with everything and then erased it all from the server... is it even possible? Or could something overwrote or replace the Mozilla Firefox files on my computer? Where should I look for my original files, settings, saves, etc. on my computer, maybe something has been saved? Maybe I can find something? Please help, it is really painful to lose thousands of websites that I had saved and organized in many different bookmarks and folders.

Kind regards, Simon

First, I have been using Firefox for years (from the beginning) and prefer it over all other browsers, except for one big thing: Bookmarks can't be sorted! Which is clearly a common problem for other users.

I understand you can sort bookmarks IF they are stored in folders. I do not want to, nor do I have time to store bookmarks in folders. Why can't Mozilla just fix this and make bookmarks sortable?????
