I made the big mistake of refreshing Firefox thinking it would solve another issues. Now all of my bookmarks are gone. I've tried the show all bookmarks, import and restore thing but I don't get a date to click on, it just takes me to my desktop folder. What am I doing wrong? I also did a system restore on my computer hoping that would help, but it didn't. I'm clearly not very good at this.

When I save a page to my bookmarks it doesnt show up in my bookmarks tab. They show up if I click show all bookmarks and scroll down to end, but they do not show up on my list of bookmarks in the regular bookmarks tab. How do I get them to start showing up again on the regular bookmarks area instead of only in the show all bookmarks area?

I recently reinstalled Mozilla and I can't drag and drop new bookmarks, nor can I import my old bookmarks from an HTML file. If I drag and drop a tab to the bookmarks area, it just opens a new browser window.

I have no add-ons installed, I only use AdBlocker, have been for years. I've restarted in safe mode, same thing.

When I click import from HTML in the Library, they appear in the lefthand column in a folder called Bookmarks toolbar. I just can't drag them to the browser toolbar, where they used to be.

My bookmarks toolbar contains a mix of links and folders with sets of related links within them. When I first start Firefox these links and the links within the folders are all available and work fine. However, later, the folders are still visible but will not open. This seems to be after I have minimised Firefox and later re-maximised it. To fix this I have to close Firefox and restart it. I am up to date with version 55.0.3 (32-bit) running under Win 7.1 (64 bit).

Some possibly related observations that might help are:

1 - whenever this happens the three-bar menu button has an exclamation mark over it, and it won't open either. I suspect that's a big clue.

2 - when Firefox asks for my master password the dialog is mostly off-screen top left and cannot be dragged onto screen. This is new behavior that seems to be coincident with the advent of the bookmarks problem.

Speculating, I wonder if the window that opens for a bookmarks folder is in fact opening but is being drawn somewhere off screen and thus only appears unresponsive. Could there be something overwriting the screen origin co-ordinates to create this appearance.

I have noted what appears to be a related question that addresses disappearance of folders but in my case the icons are still visible just not active. The bookmarks library clearly shows these bookmarks as present after I have restarted.

Any ideas / solutions will be much appreciated.

Thanks

Attempting to seach for a bookmark (in Firefox Library) causes "not responding" message, altho search is completed in 8 minutes. Help?

Hi...Every time I attempt to search for a bookmark by clicking "show your bookmarks" (or Ctrl/shift/b), then selecting "all bookmarks", then attempting to type something in the search box, it freezes...and just allows me to press enter, it then turns the "x" in the top right red, and gives a "Not responding" message next to Library(in the top left)..I can still click the red x to cancel the search.

I say attempting to do a search, as it only allows me to type up to 4 (is the most) letters in the search box...its often just one letter before it freezes, and the curser turns into a spinning blue circle....If i just leave it for around 8 minutes,(after pressing enter) it then lists my bookmarks with the search criteria I had used, and the "Not responding" message disappears....and the machine goes back to normal

I have tried removing all my addons and extensions, tried renaming my prefs.js file, but it still hangs and takes 8 minutes.

I havent as yet done a reinstall of Firefox without any of my personal data, or tried a refresh.

The laptop is an HP i7 16gb ram, Win 10 Pro 64bit 1909, Firefox 76.0.1...with all updates present.

I ran Spybot and Adaware. I cleaned my computer and it seems to be working better. I installed Adblock and I am not getting ads which is really nice.

Nothing seems to work. Any ideas? Thanks a bunch.

Why does Firefox 55 64-bit not import or display bookmarks on Windows 10 PC?

Earlier today I updated my copy of Firefox on a Windows 10 PC to the new 64 bit version of Firefox 55. Since doing so, all of my bookmarks have disappeared, and newly created bookmarks are not displayed in the browser.

This is regardless of whether the bookmarks are imported from .html file or other browser.

I have since re-installed Firefox and it is still the same after having deleted personal settings and changed some settings as recommended on the help pages.

But I still have this issue: : I have never encountered this problem before.

Can someone please advise? The PC concerned runs Windows 10 and has 8GB RAM with more than adequate hard disk space available.

Mr Morgan.

I believe Firefox 32 now uses the extension .jsonlz4 for its bookmark backups, as does SeaMonkey 2.29. I also believe that Firefox 32 has the same problem restoring bookmarks as SeaMonkey 2.29, in that it will not restore either .json or .jsonlz4 bookmark backups any more. Why are backups made to a location outside the profile still .json? Why will they no longer restore? What is the point of making backups if they cannot be restored? Why do that to Firefox? (I know that you can import .html bookmarks still.)

Hi everyone,

Recently I was cleaning some malware/viruses/spyware/worms and all other nasty files located on hard drive of computer. Actually I still have them but this is NOT the purpose of my message. The problem is that I lost everything in Firefox. All my bookmarks that I cannot live without are gone. ALL. Each and every bookmark is gone. Saved passwords are gone. Addons are gone. Online banking certificate is gone. Also when I click CTRL T to add new tab in same window I get extremely annoying squares (3 lines and each line with 5 squares) which are graphically showing websites I have visited. Please if someone could help me to get everything back, particularly bookmarks are extremely important.

I tried to do three possible tasks but neither of them worked.

TASK ONE:

Usage of about:<wbr>profiles command in address bar but it is reporting error message saying The address isn't valid.

TASK TWO (consisting of multiple steps):

step 1: finding old firefox profiles I could manage to find. I hope they are NOT all otherwise I am in huge trouble. Hopefully something was overlooked and you will see why in upcoming steps.

step 2: clicking Open menu icon on the left hand side of firefox consisting of three horizontal lines and click Open Help Menu icon and then click Troubleshooting Information

step 3: clicking about:profiles in section Application Basics. Here I then added every single profile I am aware of via button Create A New Profile

step 4: for each of profile I got listed, I clicked on Launch profile in new browser and my bookmarks, together with other settings (online banking certificate, saved passwords, addons,...) were NOT ( !!! ) there. In neither of profile. I pray that I overlooked some saved profile...

TASK THREE:

Bookmarks menu\Show All Bookmarks\Import And Backup\Restore. However, In this submenu Restore there is nothing to be restored.

Someone please help me as I really need to get, particularly but not only bookmarks, back.

Waiting extremely anxiously for your reply...

Thank you in advance a billion times!

Hello Mozilla Support. A list of porn video, chat, webcam and sex-hook-up bookmarks have been found in "Other Folders" on my PC which I have never put there. This has caused a great deal of distress and although difficult, I desperately would like help to confirm/prove that these were placed there by some type malicious source like Adware or Malware and not by me. This has happened on a Windows XP OS using Mozilla Firefox. The PC was erased and reformatted in approx 2012-13, and these links were found in this folder around 12 months ago in 2016. (Please see attachment) I never use or even look in that folder, so I had no idea that they were there, or from when. All of the link URLs are a mile long, which is unlike all the other bookmarks that I have saved everywhere else on this PC. Most/all of which simply end after the ".com", or ".com/forum" etc and that includes those that I am automatically logged in to. Has this been seen before? Is anyone aware of this? Is anyone aware of the possible cause? As much information as possible is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and help. Steve.
