I have lost my shortcuts in the TOOLBAR. This happened after I attempted to RESTORE bookmarks from the MANAGE BOOKMARKS - from a BOOKMARKS file from a different PC. The RESTORE ran for a while, then failed with an error message of some sort. Well, I decided to do an END TASK in FILE MANAGER to end Firefox.
Since I had a good copy of my bookmarks file from another PC, I thought I could copy that into the PROFILE directory somewhere, but at that point FILE MANAGER only showed me bookmark files in a BOOKMARKSBACKUP folder.
Rather than guessing where to put the 'good' BOOKMARKS file from my other PC, I decided to just restart Firefox.
After I did, I was pleasantly surprised to see that my bookmarks seemed to be restored ok (previously, there were many duplicates entries, possibly dozens of duplicates for each bookmark - for some reason, that made SEARCHING the bookmarks impossible - I would type on or two characters in the SEARCH box and FIREFOX would hang forever.)
Anyways, I think my Bookmarks might be restored/imported properly (I don't recall which command I used at this point). But, all the shortcuts on the TOOLBAR are missing. And I had dozens.
Is there a way to restore just shortcuts to the TOOLBAR now? (since I think my others are now ok, in the menu.) Should I try the restore again? Can I just copy the bookmarks.JSON, or bookmarks.HTML file, into the PROFILE FOLDER somewhere? Any other solution other than just manually putting the shortcuts back in the toolbar?
Oh, and any idea why I had dozens of duplicate bookmarks, that made the search function impossible? (I don't want that to happen again.)
