I recently installed Firefox version 120.0.1 on Linux Lite 6.6 and logged in to my Mozilla and Firefox accounts, then synced my data. In the past, when I used Ubuntu Desktop 22.04, this method would display all the bookmarks I had saved on other devices that also use Firefox. However, for this case, syncing did not successfully display bookmarks in the Firefox toolbar.

I then tried exporting bookmarks to an HTML file, then importing them into the newly installed Firefox using the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open, so I couldn't import bookmarks.html into the new Firefox installed on Linux Lite 6.6. I also tried restoring from the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open either.

Is there another way to transfer these bookmarks to the newly installed Firefox on Linux Lite?

Hi

Do you have your bookmarks saved in Firefox on a different device?

Did you install Linux Lite over Ubuntu? Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla, run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
