I had a disk crash where I had to send the disk out for reconstruction of the data. The app data folder data for the profiles was lost, however the favorites where the bookmarks are stored is OK. I can't find a backup file that will import the old bookmarks. With a directory with all the favorites in it, how can I get firefox to use these bookmarks?

Firefox does not use a favorites folder. It uses a single data file to contain both bookmarks and history. places.sqlite


Firefox automatically makes backups of the bookmarks. These are stored in the bookmarkbackups folder.

Open the Bookmarks Manager; Press the Alt or F10 key bring up the tool bar, and select Bookmarks. Hot key is <Control>(Mac=<Command>) <Shift> B.

Once the window is open, at the top of the page, press the button labeled Import and Backup. Select Restore. From the list, pick the file you want and click it.

The backups are stored in a jsonlz4 file named something like this; bookmarks-2016-06-29_1424_enD1GTHya0JmicnYWg4V4g==.jsonlz4 In this example; 2016-06-29 = date created, 1424 = number of entries.
