Copying Firefox Bookmarks

I had a Windows 10 machine on which the motherboard died. I had the machine fully backed up in a WindowsImage file.

Then I bought a new machine of a different make that came with the same version of Windows 10 Professional as I had on my old machine. Unfortunately, the restore program will not restore the file to my new machine. So to retrieve my many useful Firefox bookmarks I opened a VHD (mounting the file onto a virtual drive) and attempted to copy the bookmarks across to the proper directory in the new machine.

My understanding is that they are kept in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

Overwriting everything in the new Profiles directory with everything in the Profile directory from my old machine does not work, and I cannot work out what to copy and where to copy it to as the directory structure and the folders it contains are very different on the two machines.

Does anybody know of a utility out there that will help me? All suggestions gratefully received.

Thank you,

NM

version 93.0 (64 bit) Windows 10, I have lost all my bookmarks and I can not bookmark any pages. The bookmark tabs are gone. I get the message: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem" What security software?

I did a clean install of Windows and forgot to backup the Firefox profile folder since frankly I didn't know it existed. I forgot my Firefox password before I knew about the recovery key. I reset the password and then found out resetting it deletes the bookmarks for security reasons.

Now I'm wondering, is there any way the staff could find my old bookmarks? I'm still holding onto hope.

Thank you for response.

I wanted to make another bookmark menu, and I did but instead of being empty it has the exact same things as the other one. I can't delete anything from either one without deleting it from the other one. I wanted to have one empty so I could categorize them. Is there anything I can do to keep one, and have the other one empty?

I had to put in a new hard-drive into my computer that I previously was running Firefox browser on so I downloaded the Firefox back on after the new hard-drive was done. Before on my old hard-drive when I click Firefox browser and it came on, it had a ribbon across the top of the screen underneath the back arrow, forward arrow, and search URL that I used the most of in my favorites (I think it showed across the screen about 10 of my bookmarks) to click on instead of going into all my bookmarks to get. How can I put my most used bookmarks across the top of screen now instead of just clicking the "star" that show ALL my bookmarks and I have to go down to whichever one I want to use and boy do I have a bunch of bookmarks even thou they are in alphabet order? I hope someone can tell me how to do this!

I lost all the bookmarks suddenly where i was using this browser for office work, there was no action taken from my end like deletion or any upgrade, however suddenly when i start machine today, i found all bookmarks lost. To restore backup I entered to Profile --> bookmark backup this file is extension JSONLZ4 which is not visible during restore bookmark.

This is quite important to recover these suddenly lost all bookmarks, so is there any way or support available?

Unfortunately this is first time i am facing such kind of issue, So kindly also let me know if we should trust mozilla firefox as default browser and to save bookmarks?

Thanks & Regards

Whenever I make changes in Bookmarks Manager, they aren't applied to my bookmarks in Firefox. They are saved within the Bookmarks Manager, they just don't update to my actual bookmarks (i.e., the way my bookmarks are displayed within the Bookmarks Manager does NOT match the way my bookmarks actually show up in the browser). I have tried:

-refreshing Firefox -unchecking the box for "read-only" in the places.sqlite file (as recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-add-change-or-save-bookmarks) -deleting both the "places.sqlite" file and the "xulstore-json" file (as recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-add-change-or-save-bookmarks) -restarting my computer

This is a major issue for me and may mean I have to switch back to Chrome if I can't get it sorted. Any other suggestions on how I can fix this issue?
