When I try to export or backup bookmarks in Firefox a shortcut is created but no file is created why?

Postáilte

Restarting Firefox in safe mode makes no difference. The filename and location are valid but no file is created, only a shortcut in the AppData folder. Restarting Windows makes no difference either.

Make sure that you are running Firefox version 69.0.3 (the latest version). Users had issues downloading files on certain Windows computers in an older version of Firefox and this could be the source of your problem.

As for where the backup will be saved, you can select the location when you start the backup process. It doesn't necessarily save into the AppData folder.

Hope this helps.

I am using Firefox 69.0.3 and trying to save the bookmarks to my Downloads folder or any other folder. The html or json files are not being created there at all. The only files created are lnk files in the AppData folder according to the Everything file search program.
