My goal here is to move all bookmarks into a Favorites folder the easiest way possible without losing any of them for organizing. If a thread/article already exists about this please point me over there. All help is appreciated.

I open my bookmarks and select all of them, the count is over 35,000. I export them and import them into IE, the count is 1,500. (also happens using Edge) Where are the rest?

I'm guessing the FF count is accurate but not sure where the loss is occurring - FF or IE.

On a related note, Recently Bookmarked only shows 10 at a time. I move those and 10 more show up, and so on.

Thanks.

My bookmarks were not imported. Also, do I not need to tag this so it's easier for others to find and limits redundancies?

Love the layout of Firefox and look forward to this being my browser. At least until Epic Privacy Browser gets it's stuff together.

I'm attempting to switch from using Safari and Chrome to using just Firefox. I'm running the newest Firefox, and so far am pretty pleased. I just need to find a way to import logins/passwords from Safari and Chrome, or from LastPass.

I found a support topic showing that the LastPass addon has an Import to Firefox feature, but this is no longer true. Also no longer true is this support article (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/password-manager-remember-delete-change-and-import#w_managing-multiple-accounts-for-a-site) showing the Import... button in the Password Manager.

When I fired up Firefox, I chose to import data from other browsers, but this did not include logins, apparently.

So I am trying to transfer my Firefox 53 bookmarks from one PC (Windows 10) to another (Ubuntu 17.04) via the "json" Filetype. The first problem was that the Restoring from file always produced a error message of a script not working (disabling addons/plugins, aswell as giving the script more time by changing the config value from 10 to 20 did not help), I clicked "continue" and it seemed to finish correctly.

To check whether the Transfer was corrupted by the script error, I made a backup file (again .json) of the new installation.

Problem: The original Backup File was 2,5MB big, the "test-backup" is 2,4MB big!!!

I thought maybe Ubuntu is the problem, so I made a fresh installation of Windows 10+Firefox on another partition. With this Win10 installation i had no script-error during bookmarks-installation.

BUT: A test-backup of this third installation was only 2,3MB big!

So my bookmark backups keep getting smaller eventhough they should have identical contents!

Where is the fault?

Helo!

First what caused the problem: Few days ago the C-partition of the HD-Drive with Win7-OS and firefox-installation crashed due to problems with the clusters (according to error-messages). I tried to fix the problem with chkdsk, win-repair and standard checks but did not work. Win7 starts until the circling balls appear or sometimes until the mouse-coursor on a black screen appears but stays there. The other partitions - containing data - work well as before. I recognised i can get access to the OS-partition by choosing command-prompt in the win7-repair-environment. All files and folders are still there.

I installed another HD of the same type (first as single drive) and also installed the same OS and the firefox-browser to search for advice. After that i put the old HD as slave into the PC. All partitions seems ok. but the first one with OS denys access. The diskmanagement under system-control shows no problems with any partition. All partitions are correctly identified and have a properly drive letter. Only access to the first partition wich contains the OS and firefox is always denied.

WHAT I TRIED (WANT TO DO): I started the system with the command-prompt without starting win7 (not the Win7-prompt in a window) and i copied the completely profile from the old firefox-installation on the old HD to C: on the new HD with creating all folders by hand and xcopy all files in all folders (E:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxx.default (xxx for the characters/name firefox createt)) to a subfolder on the new C:. Then i choosed this profile by using the ff-Profile-Manager. The name of the profile-folder (and sub-folders) were exactly taken over from the old installation with all files from the old installation on the old HD.

BUT WHEN I STARTED FF AGAIN TO AN UNEXPECTED SITUATION, THE PROFILE AND ABOVE ALL THE BOOKMARKS WERE THE SAME LIKE BEFORE (A FEW FROM THE NEW INSTALLATION INSTEAD OF HUNDREDS FROM THE OLD PROFILE).

So i ask for advice how i can get the old profile/bookmarks to the new System. Or maybe - if anyone knows - how i could run the old ffox at least once again to save the bookmarks by using the bookmark-backup. (I made a backup but it was too long ago, a lot of new bookmarks were added in the last time.)

I would be very thankful for any advice/information to solve the problem.

With kind regards



System: Desktop-PC (Intel 6600 Dualcore, 2GB Ram, 2x Seagate Barracuda 320GB), Win7 64bit, firefox v37.0.1

I have downloaded Firefox 35.0.1 for MAC running OSX 10.9.5 Mavericks.

Every time I try to import bookmarks it just freezes Firefox. Tried the feature to import from another browser (Safari and Chrome) as well as importing from a saved HTML file. None work.

I get an error message pop up telling me that Firefox is trying to run a script that is non-responsive. I have to force quit the application.

My machine is clean. I just had the Apple store re-format the entire drive and load OSX Mavericks fresh as a mew machine instal, so there is definitely no junk on my machine that should be causing the problem.

Bookmark imports have always worked easily and without a problem before.

Can anyone help please?
