I am attempting to migrate my bookmarks from an old profile to my new Firefox which is an Ubuntu snap install. I did not make a backup I can use. The instructions I am following are published here:
I copied the following files from my old profile and pasted them to overwrite those in the new profile. But the bookmarks are not visible in my new FF.
cert8.db (cert9.db in Firefox 58 and above)
key3.db (key4.db in Firefox 58 and above)
favicons.sqlite (Firefox 55 and above)
The following additional files mentioned in the above article were not present in my old profile, and I am uncertain why missing , or if they are required.
logins.json (Firefox 32 and above)
signons.sqlite (Firefox 31 and below)
signons3.txt (if exists)
When the above file transfer produced no result, I checked places.sqlite file within the old profile and found this (screenshot). I am not sure how to interpret it.
I also checked all the other .sqlite files listed above and there is no evidence of a bookmark list.
Here is the only part of prefs.js that references places.sqlite in the new FF install.
Can someone please suggest a solution?
