My firefox wasn't working so I closed the window and reopened it and it still wasn't working saying that might be something missing in the file so I turned off my laptop and turned it back on and the window was missing the bookmarks toolbar and menu bar that I have set on and my saved passwords were all erased. Everything else is still there that I know of. Tried doing the about:config thing but that's as far as I got.

Today my former excellent Firefox lost all it's memory. My standard tabs in the upper bar are all gone. It constantly only wants to search in Yahoo, which I hate. I want it back as it was yesterday. I want all my tabs back and I want it to search using Google. I have tried to set-up an account and to sync but nothing works as it keeps going back to a blank new start up with no tabs and Yahoo search.

Hello I've tried importing (from a Firefox bookmark.html file) using the bookmark manager of Firefox (45.0.1) in a second user account in Windows 8.1. But for some reason it does import all bookmarks some are missing. I've tried deleting all bookmarks in Firefox (the one that I'm trying to import into) before importing but still there are several which are missing upon the completion of the importing of the bookmarks. Would there be a way to import the bookmarks using some third party utility and just drag and drop into the Firefox library bookmark manager ?

Thanks

Yesterday I had some problems with firefox, I had to force shutdown because it stoped working. Then when I restarted firefox it just gave me a blank page instead of asking me if I wanted to recover last session, then it suddenly uppdated to the newest version. I then did a reset of firefox just to be safe because I also discoverd some threats to my computer.. I then discoverd that all search history for this month was gone but not april.. So I uninstalled firefox and reinstalled it.. Now all search history was gone and to my despair, all of my bookmarks that I have collected since last year! I have searched for an answer to why and cant find anyone. I cant make a recovery because that option is empty and the map that stores firefox bookmarks is also empty so I can only guess they are gone forever but how? Can someone give me an answer to what happend and if it possible to get the bookmarks back?

So a few weeks ago I finally upgraded to 49 something. Bookmarks worked normally after the upgrade. But yesterday my computer froze and I had to reboot. Bookmarks and history suddenly missing, can't create bookmarks. Found Restore, can see a list of backup bookmark files with dates and file size, but get message "unable to process backup file." Browsed for possible solutions. Ascertained that I only have the one profile. Downloaded 50.0, installed, rebooted. Still nothing. I did not install any new add-ons as far as I know. Not doing any syncing. (By the way, I view my bookmarks as a sidebar.)

What to try next?

Dell laptop, Vista.

My problem started after I deleted my profile. Not knowing what I was doing, I deleted my profile and restarted Firefox. I had no bookmarks, my theme was gone, etc. After a while, I figured out how to use my old Firefox data to get my old profile back. When I did this, I think I might have gone back to an older version of Firefox, but it says everything is up to date. The Problem is that when I go to some websites, it says there is a buggy script (or loads very slow) and I have to stop script then it works. Another thing is that when I go to some websites (it varies on how often it happens) it says I need to update my media player. So I got to the link and it automatically pulls up an .exe. I have a mac and can't use an exe (don't tell me to use bootcamp, I don't have a flash drive big enough). When I just go to the web it's the same thing. If it should only work with Microsoft, then how do I stop the banner from showing up?


Thanks for the help, and if you couldn't, thanks for trying.

I was doing some travel research, Firefox crashed and wouldn't restart. I then tried to refresh Firefox and it save my "Old Firefox Data" in a folder on my desktop. I tried to restart Firefox but it kept saying my Profile was missing. I then followed directions to create a new Profile so I could get Firefox to open up. This worked and now I want to get my old bookmarks into my new profile from the "Old Firefox Data" folder.
