I was getting ready to cleanup my Win 10 laptop using Disk Cleanup and CCleaner. I didn't want to lose my History and cleanups always remove it so I opened History > clicked on Import& Backup and choose Backup to create a bookmarks-date.json file.

When I went back after cleaning up and clicked on Restore, chose the correct json file it said "This will replace all of your current bookmarks with the backup. Are you sure?" I clicked OK thinking that would restore them, but when I opened Firefox not only was the Bookmark tool bar missing but all the bookmarks were gone!!! How can I get my Bookmarks back?? They are stored in my Profile, right? What do I do when I find the file? I see no options to restore the file.  ??/

I have a fairly recent backup of the whole hard drive. I could find the file and copy it but where would I paste it to get my Bookmarks back??

It's NOT just Bookmarks but topic did not have a good choice.

My problem is that Firefox is opening with the wrong version? When I click a link in another program, like Discord or some others, it does not open with MY version, with the tabs and menus, etc. And if I try to save a bookmark it does not have MY saved bookmarks? So to get around this I copy the URL, open MY real Firefox, paste the URL into it, press enter to go there and then save I my bookmark. If I open my Firefox with a link to Firefox EVERYTHING is normal. It's ONLY when I try opening a link in a different program.

PLEASE Help, I don't know what is wrong. This only started about 10 days agO??

Hi there,

I've got plenty of bookmarks organized in folders and sub-folders (never could wrap my head around using tags). Normally, hovering on top of a folder or sub-folder just opens it. However for some unknown reason, some folders just don't open on hovering. By contrast, opening the "Manage bookmarks" pane shows all bookmarks are there and functional. The issue only appears in the menus, and I'm not sure when it appeared exactly.

Already tried: Renaming faulty folders: no effect Moving bookmarks into a newly created folder: no effect Moving faulty folders into an already-working folder: works, except if the folder is the one containing the root menu.

Screenshots: A working sub-menu: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-01-10-56-24-be01e3.png

Two different, non-opening submenus: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-01-10-56-43-4a4bb1.png https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-01-10-56-50-615eee.png

Why am I unable to import a firefox bookmark HTML file?

Thanks for any solutions anyone can provide.

Hello there,

I have a new computer and I signed in using my Firefox account in order to import my bookmarks. They did not all show up so I added bookmarks as I went along. The problem is that my bookmarks name are correct but when I click on them, it takes me to a different website, and not necessarily one I have saved. Under ma bank's bookmark for example, when I click on it, it takes me to a Government page that I visited a few days ago (but did not save as a bookmark). I have already reset the names for all by bookmarks, but this problem keeps occurring. If anyone could help me sort this out, I would be grateful. Thanks and regards K

Over the past two days, I have found if I create a new tab, the shortcuts that I had saved on that page have all disappeared. Does Firefox keep a backup of these shortcuts? Unlike related support messages I've read, my bookmarks and bookmarks toolbar are unaffected.

These shortcuts (about 16 of them) took quite a while to accumulate, and it is frustrating to see that they can just simply disappear like that.

I am running Firefox 108.0.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10).

The scrolling speed in Bookmarks folders when hovering over top or bottom of list is too fast. When trying to drag a new bookmark to a Sub-folder in the Bookmarks Toolbar, and you need to scroll down in the list of folders, you hover over the bottom of the displayed drop-down. But it scrolls so fast that you go past the folder you are trying to drag n drop the new bookmark into. So you hover over the top of the list and it scrolls up so fast that again, you go past the folder you are looking for. Is there any way to control this scrolling speed? It's my only gripe about the BEST BROWSER. I have thousands of Bookmarks and hundreds of Folders. PLEASE HELP Thanks Regards
