I used Mozbackup to save my bookmarks and other profile info on my computer and then restored it onto my partners computer on my login - however in doing so I have managed to overwrite her profile. There is now only one profile folder (mine). Is there any way I can recover her profile info - especially bookmarks? Is there a recovery program I can use to find it lurking somewhere? I tried system restore to no avail.

Before reformatting my PC, I exported all my bookmarks via HTML file. I reformatted, installed Firefox, then tried to proceed with importing all my bookmarks. I go to the import function and choose the HTML bookmarks file and nothing happens at all. I tried using other browsers to import, but nothing happens. I am not sure how to fix this.

I thought maybe I could transfer the HTML file into a JSON file, but I couldn't find a way to do so, even after renaming the file extensions. Could the HTML file be possibly be corrupted? I'm out of ideas on how to import my bookmarks!

I really need to fix this, please help!

When I right-click on a bookmark in a bookmark folder, I am not presented with a way to sort the bookmarks. I am used to IE where there is an option to sort the links (or folders within a folder) alphabetically with just one click.

how to keep "last used folder" active when making a new bookmark?

When you go to make a new bookmark, the "Page Bookmarked" dialog screen appears. It shows the folder that the bookmark will be placed into - by default, the top-level folder, usually "Bookmarks Menu". It used to be the case (at least up to version 12) than if you expand this, it will default to the last used folder within your bookmarks. It doesn't do that anymore - it stays "Bookmarks Menu" and I have to scroll all the way down and look forthe folder I want to use... Any way to fix this? I don't want to keep scrolling when I need to place several bookmarks into the same folder. Maybe through about:config? Thanks in advance.

Can't save non http bookmarks in firefox

Amongst standard website favourites saved on my IE toolbar i have several html documents/pages of my own making. These obviously begin with a non-http address.

Examples are pages that contain an array of favourite webcams on a single page, or a page that opens up several related sports sites each in their own tab, or a stormchasing swathe of tabbed windows covering live video chase, weather radar, emergency service scanners etc. etc.

An address would take the format on the lines of "C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\My Documents\Football Results and Tables\UK.html"

Firefox insists on adding 'http' before the C:\ (plus unlike IE it also adds the %20 for spaces.)

Can anyone help to to get FF to accept a favourite that is not a website.

This morning I downloaded an update for Adobe, this may or may not be relevant.

I'm using Windows 7 and Firefox 18. I've got a bookmarks bar across the top of my browser window which I've been using but today it's suddenly started magnifying and/or the any tab that appear by the cursor show a reflection of the page. I'm totally perplexed

I have my main bookmarks in alphabetical order and those in the bookmarks toolbar in my preferred order. This is the same on 4 different PC's, all of which are synced in FF.

However, whenever FF opens after the PC has restarted it re-organises the bookmarks, both the main list and those in the toolbar. It always re-sorts them into the same order (but not alphabetical) and it moves all the separators on the toolbar to the end. This happens the same every time and on all PC's and has happened since v16 (I'm now on v18 and it still does it).

I've tried removing the 'localstore.rdf' file from the profile folder but that hasn't made any difference.

Hello. I had a system crash yesterday, a raid failure (one hdd died from a raid 0), I reinstalled Windows 7 x64, on a new hdd (normal, not in raid or something like that). I installed them Firefox 18 and I set up the Sync account. Then I tried to synchronise my computer with the server, after 10 minutes or something, when I came back to the computer, I checked the bookmarks. And surprise... some sections were lost, after a 2nd synchronise, all my bookmarks were lost and nowhere to be found. Also on the server there are no bookmarks left, even if the passwords still work and all in pristine condition. So what to do now?
