Hi, I did loose my bookmarks after repair too, but I am on an old Yosemite 10.10.5. I do have the folder "previous FF data", the folder says "bookmarksbackups", can I do something with this? Also I went to Library/application support/Firefox/Profiles and there are some interesting things in one of the two of them, what should I do? At the end of the second library screenshot, there is a storage folder, with only a few items in it, not included, thanks

sorry if there was an article on this but the post says Windows, I didnt bother, thanks

Hi dona, what kind of repair was it?

The files pictured in the first and second screenshots contain 17 items, counting bookmarks and folders. That's the number after the date in the file name. So those files probably do not have what you're looking for, or not very much of it.


Could you check whether your stuff is available in a different profile, as follows:

Profile Manager Page

Inside Firefox, type or paste about:profiles in the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it.

This page should list at least one profile and could list many. (Each profile has two folders and one or more buttons. Do not use any Remove buttons!)

The profile that Firefox is currently using will have this:

This is the profile in use and it cannot be deleted.

Do you have another profile named default or default-longnumber listed on this page? If so, you can check whether it is the one you were using recently by clicking its Launch profile in new browser button.

If it isn't what you want, simply close that new window.

If it IS what you want, back on the about:profiles page, click the Set as default profile button for that profile so Firefox uses it automatically at the next startup.

Anything interesting so far?

Did you look for any Time Machine backup that might have some data ?

HI Jscher and corel, They recovered my data after a disk crash, all data were recovered, except for bookmarks and downloads. Yes I did have a default profile and I launched it in a new browser, but the bookmarks were empty. Thank you anyway!
