Hello, my bookmarks including the bookmarks bar have disappeared, within just a few hours of them being visible. When I clicked on the View menu button and selected Toolbars, the setting was somehow changed to Never Show. I changed it back to Always Show, but I'm curious how it would change itself to Never Show. I haven't completed an OS update for several days, and this incident just occurred today. All day long, my bookmarks were present; I turned off my computer about 5PM. When I turned it back on about 8PM, the bookmarks were gone. Help and thank you.

You could have pressed the keyboard shortcut to toggle the Bookmarks Toolbar (Ctrl+Shift+B) which changes it to "Never show".

Do you get the bookmarks back if you enable the Bookmarks Toolbar ?

If not, then make sure that the "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" control is placed on the Bookmarks Toolbar.

If this still doesn't work, check for problems with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history).

If you use Sync, best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

This could be a problem with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use the "Places Database" -> "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page

If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox or reboot and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from the most recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

  • keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created
  • you lose the history when a new places.sqlite is created

You may have to restore an older bookmarks backup in the bookmarkbackups folder via the Bookmarks Manager (Library).

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page (Root directory).
