I refreshed Firefox because it kept crashing and loading slowly. My bookmarks didn't come back, and none of the backups will restore. I get the message "Unable to process the backup file." All the backups have zero bytes, but they show the number of items. There's also a message when I reopen Firefox that says "The bookmarks and history system will not be funtional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." but nothing else is running. I restarted my computer and it still says that. I tried deleting the favicons.sqlite and places.sqlite files and it made that message go away, but I still got the "Unable to process the backup file" message when I tried to restore my bookmarks.

With Firefox 91.0 update, the DREADED double-spacing of bookmarks is back--despite the volumes of complaints when it occurred with previous update(s). At least then, the fix to toggle off the "proton.contextmenus" code worked (as shown below)** NOW IT DOES NOT. With 50 million once dedicated users abandoning FIREFOX, why is this happening? How do we fix it NOW? (and no, I have no intention of becoming a secondary programmer every two weeks to fix these upgrades--nor I think will many others) Firefox Support, where are you?


    • Temporary Fix

For testing purposes, the developers left a preference in Firefox 89 to switch between new style and old style menus:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the preference to switch between true (new style) and false (old style)

Fairly recently, I've noticed that Firefox will move sites automatically to a folder, fine and dandy, until it keep sending sites to the same folder despite me wanting to fill another folder. Example: browsing for computer components then looking for home improvement items, since the computer parts folder was used first, Firefox will continue to select the computer folder, when I select a different folder, in this case it's home improvement, I have about 2-3 seconds to hit save bookmark before it re selects the computer component folder, is this a feature? is there a way to disable it? or is there something else going on, any help is appreciated, it's frustrating

I accidentally deleted a single bookmark in a folder in my Toolbar.

So I created a restore point just in case, and then used the restore feature.

So when I restored my bookmarks, it froze firefox.

So I restarted and it restore everything except the toolbar.

The Bookmarks Toolbar is there, it's just empty, and all my extremely important bookmarks in the toolbar just don't exist. I even confirmed that they're gone by adding new things to the Bookmarks Toolbar, every bookmark in it is gone, with all the folders.

I am a designer and these were super important to me, please help, all my internet searches are extremely unhelpful, since they just say to restore, or check if the toolbar is being displayed(it is), the specific bookmarks in the toolbar are gone...

Edited to correct some history -- so the followng transcript may be a bit out of synch -- I will state my current question below.

Two things happened at the same time -- I uninstalled Adobe Flash, and a Windows Update ran. I didn't notice the Windows update, so I blamed the wrong thing, the Flash uninstall. It was WIndows.

The Windows update caused all my bookmarks and history (and most cookies) to disappear. I'm on Firefox 68.10.0esr

I found my Profiles at C:\Users\[me]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles but I don't understand what's in there enough to fish the bookmarks out, and I don't see anything that looks like "15 backups" promised by the Mozilla help pages.

Where are my Bookmark backups?

The Bookmarks are all there, but the url is missing. None of the extensions (including ones I've paid for are there)

The logins weren't there, but are now restored from a previous install.

What I have done...

1. exported bookmarks to html and checked them out there. They were broken there as well.

2. Refreshed Firefox,

3. Restarted the PC.

4. Uninstalled Firefox (and discovered that I had both X32 and X64 on my machine) - uninstalled both. 5. Reinstalled Firefox x64 (current version 86.0.1)

6. the places.sqlite files from previous restores have the same problem.

I've started to refresh the links for the toolbar which has taken me awhile. I don't want to have to do it for all my hundred's of bookmarks.

Ideally what I'd like to do is uninstall the latest update, look at the bookmarks to see if they are still stuffed, and if the extensions are there. If they are ok, then I want to back the bookmarks to html. Reinstall the update, then restore the bookmarks. (And make a list of the extension names so I can reinstall them).

My guess is either that the sqlite file has corrupted, or the update has changed the file layout for the bookmarks, etc, and it's unable to interpret the links.

Hi! I need some help, please. Is there a way to move more than just one bookmark at a time to folders on my Windows laptop? I have thousands of bookmarks saved on my Firefox. And I wish to save them all on my laptop. But in the way you save one and one, not with that whole saving everything in one file. But saving them all so I can just double click the icon link in my windows to have it opened in Firefox again.

So anyway. It is possible to drag one and one bookmark like this. But I have never figured out how to move more at once. Is this possible? Please help. It would make my life so much easier, when I need to go through the 20,000+ things I have saved.

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

So, I just noticed today that my bookmarks section is having the same issue again that it had a few updates back.


I tried looking into repeating what I did last time, but it doesn't seem that this is the issue this time as the settings have not changed from when I went into to edit them the last time. Meaning this might be a whole new issue. I *did* however notice that there is a new and odd section listing in about:config under the following:


browser.bookmarks.defaultLocation SxQPPk-c1zth


Does anyone know if this is the issue, and if so, where this is supposed to really go?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

On several occasions, FF72.02 has coased all my favicons to disappear (Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit). How can I recover these. Neither backing up the bookmarks as .json file nor backing up HTML bookmarks allows me to recover. Is there any file I can save to ensure the favicons are backed up. At one time there was an add-on, "Favicon Restorer" that worked resaonably well but it has not been available for some time. Restoring favicons manually is an extremely time consuming process and is no guarantee the they will not disapper again. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Firefox 73.0 bookmarks disappeared I am running os x 10.13.6 I am unsure what to do to recover my bookmarks. The json backups have not worked correctly they are 6 months months outdated it seems no idea why this is. Export HTML has not worked for many months either. I am so fed up as I needed all the research as we speak. Its causing insane problems. Are Json files stored someone else that I can find and use ?

Screen shot of my profile is attached. If I can find a Json file backed up else where please direct me to it and I will start from the beginning again I just need the bookmarks soooo badly ASAP.

Thank you all
