I back up regularly both as .json and as .html. With the .json back up, I remove the date each time I back up so there's an over-write and there's only one .json back up file in my Backup Folder.
I've never had to import bookmarks back into Firefox, but I've had a crash that's wiped out my Firefox bookmarks in the Firefox program where I kept the bookmarks in a very carefully indexed system of categories and menus that dropped down from the toolbar.
When I import .json or .html back into Firefox, will my menubars re-set to the way I had them? I remember from a long time ago using Safari, I restored backed up favorites, and what I got was a long list of titled links which wasn't anything like the way I'd set the favorites up in the first place. I hope I don't get the restoration like that this time with Firefox. In addition, when I press 'Import' from the file menu, I'm only given the option of importing from Safari. That's not what I want to do. I have "Backups" in a designated folder in my Documents in the Finder and that's where I need to pull them from.
There's something about "Profile" regarding Firefox that I've not known about that may have been something I needed to do in relation to Bookmarks.
I would appreciate any help you could provide to help me my bookmarks back in place.
PS Regarding "Troubleshooting Information".
I had to do it manually because the function doesn't support my veersion of Firefox.
"# A new window will open. Click on a button called Copy text to clipboard."
"# Paste the info in the text box below."
* Click on the empty box above this text.
I don't see an "empty box above this text." The box above isn't empty. It contains my question.
So the following don't make sense because I already Pasted below.
* Look at the top of your screen, and click the menu item called Edit.
* A small box will open. Click on the item called Paste. Alternatively, type Ctrl+V or Command+V.
* Some text will appear in the empty box.
