Bookmark recovery from automatic bookmark backups failed

Recently I accidentially deleted some bookmarks. I tried a recovery from my latest automatic bookmark recovery session and also from the day before. This worked only partially. All bookmarks and the bookmark folder structure has been restored, but seperately. I now have about seventy empty folders and about 2000 bookmarks not in their folders but all in the "root" folder. The information about which bookmark was in which folder, is lost.

Any idea how this could be fixed? I'm using an up to date version of firefox 115.8.0esr.

Regards, Matthias

Note that Firefox keeps a full undo stack of changes to bookmarks for the current session. So if you haven't closed Firefox, you can open the Bookmarks Manager (Library; Ctl+Shift+O) and use "Organize -> Undo" (Ctrl+Z) until you see the deleted bookmarks reappear.

This could be a problem with the Default Bookmark Folder extension, so try to disable this extension temporarily and retry again to restore the backup.

Thanks for providing the solution so quickly! After disabeling the Default Bookmark Extension I could recover the bookmarks correctly without any problems and with the original folder structure. To be honest, I not only disabled the extension, I deinstalled it and I rebooted the whole system, before I tried the recovery. But I don't know if this would have been necessary.
