My computer wen through a recent recovery process. My bookmarks were supposed o be safe. However, they were lost and appear now as encrypted by Firefox. How can I get Firefox to allow me to recover my encrypted bookmarks?

Hi myohoman1,

I'm sorry to hear your bookmarks disappearing on your Firefox web browser.

Have you tried checking to see if a new Profile was created? It might be worth looking into.

You could switch back by typing about:profiles in the address bar - > under your default profile click Set as default profile

If your recovery process involved refreshing Firefox there may be a Old Firefox Data saved on your desktop.

Hi myohoman1, what do you mean by:

Now they're encrypted and I'm not able toaccess them

If you have a bookmark backup file with a name like

bookmarks-2019-09-30_1250_gibberish==.jsonlz4

they are definitely compressed but probably not encrypted. These .jsonlz4 files are meant to be restored to Firefox using the steps in the following article:

Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer

However, a Restore completely replaces your current set of bookmarks. If you want to preserve what you have or see the contents first, I have a converter page which generates the HTML export format from the file:

An HTML export file is brought into Firefox using the Import feature:

Import Bookmarks from an HTML file

An Import adds to your current bookmarks, it doesn't completely replace them.
