Firefox has been my default browser for longer than I can remember. Over the years, I have maintained a significant bookmark file for work. I recently purchased a new computer, and my zero bookmarks from the new computer have replaced all of the bookmarks that I had in my old browser. This is a bookmark file that has successfully followed me through multiple computers and even my ios devices. And now it seems to be completely gone. I've looked at the places.sqlite files, and the largest one is 20MB and is in my current default profile, but it is dated today. That makes no sense because I do not have any bookmarks on this older computer, and my new computer doesn't have any either. The bookmarks have also been completely deleted from my iPad, but miraculously are still on my iPhone (evidently I had signed out of Firefox for iPhone at some point so they do exist somewhere.) The thought of trying to rebuild my bookmarks is nauseating. My only thought is to sign out of the browser on all devices, then sign back in and sync on the phone. Would that repopulate the main file with what's on my phone? Any other ideas?

Help! Firefox won't transfer bookmarks to new PC: tried HTML, json, and sync!

From: Dell XPS 13 (5 years old) on Windows 11. Up to date with The most recent version of Firefox which I believe is 120. Always stay up to date.

To: Dell XPS 13 (brand new as of this week), Windows 11 with all updates and Firefox most recent 120 again always up to date.

I have tried reading several articles on here and using different methods from multiple answers and threads and have failed to find a method which exports All of my bookmarks from my old computer to my new computer.

NOTE:

Would highly prefer a method that replaces all bookmarks and data on my new computer exactly with everything from my old computer!

I don't care about my bookmarks on my new computer because I don't really have any but I do care very much about my old ones. At one point when I was syncing them, The bookmarks on my new computer which didn't include The vast majority of them disappeared from both computers for a short time until I restored to a specific different date a few times and luckily have my bookmarks on my old laptop still.


I have tried exporting them as a JSON and as an HTML to put them on my new computer. I've read the HTML method puts them all in one place as opposed to replacing all of them. Obviously I would prefer the JSON method. However I have tried both with no success. I've also tried moving them into the documents folder both times as recommended. I've tried to restore to date on the new computer.

Transferring bookmarks individually would be way too time-consuming as I have a ton of different folders.

Someone please help me find a solution to do something which should be basic which is transfer all my bookmarks for my old computer to my new computer. I'm also logged into my Firefox same account on both computers and have tried syncing with no success as well. No matter how many times I do it. I repeated all of these processes many times with small variations.

Please someone help me get my bookmarks! Thank you for your time and help!

Best regards,

Nate

I just built a new computer with all new parts and Windows 11. The old one is disassembled. I realized afterwards that I had forgotten to save the bookmarks and passwords into the formats that make importing easy. So I have the original hard drive where Firefox was located on (with Windows 10). Is there a way to copy/paste/import any folders and/or files from the original hard drive to the one on the new computer to transfer the bookmarks and/or passwords?

Hello wonderful Mozilla Firefox,

Could you please educate me on how I may change the default view of my bookmarks. I feel like it did not used to default to the "other bookmarks" in the "Manage Bookmarks" library window (ctrl+shift+o). I find it a bit annoying that it defaults all the way to the very last folder in my whole library. How to fix this? I tried to delete this folder but that is not possible. I do not need to delete, I just want for my view to default to either the very top, or possibly to remember its last accessed folder/location. Is this possible?

Thank you very much for your time and everything you do.

An avid and loyal Firefox user.
