The browsing history works fine, with one exception: once you click on an older link to reuse it or even to simply look at it, the older link is removed an replaced by the new one.

This is very disturbing whenever you need the older link's timestamp as a proof you accessed the corresponding page at a given time.

Is there any possibility for the user to avoid this behavior?

I mistakenly deleted the subfolder "History Older Than 6 Months" under the main "History" folder. How do I restore that folder? I was trying to determine how to delete all that history in that folder since there are a lot of them all at one time instead of a page at a time. I searched through other support items but didn't find anything that addressed this. Windows 10, latest Firefox.

I foolishly clicked on Refresh and when it was done I had lost all bookmarks and history. I am at my wits' end trying to get back to where I was and will never do that again. Considering I am 80 years old I know for a fact there are probably a lot of things I won't be doing again but I would like to just go back to where I was. I am no longer able to get into Facebook which isn't going to cause the Earth to spin off its axis but I have several friends I really enjoy staying in touch with and it isn't possible to even enter FB now. I have tried everything, read all directions, followed all orders, jumped through all hoops (great Kodak moment for those of you with cameras) and I have failed.

I know that someone here, probably many of you, are more knowledgeable with the way this works and I would just enjoy being able to contact these two friends and get their emails, the FB connection isn't all that important. Now my question is and feel free to laugh but could this Refresh have caused some glitch in the innards of something or other that would cause this problem?

If any of you could help out a senior here I would be most appreciative.

Thank you for even reading my whining and begging plea.

Hello,

I've saved my bookmarks by using Export bookmarks to HTML". But the "tags" and "keywords" fields are not listed on the created page.

How do i save tags and keywords?

Related question: I'm using a Mac... where are the tags and keywords stored? Is that in /Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/(profile name)/bookmarkbackups/bookmarks-(date)(hash)==.jsonlz4 ? How would i read that and be able to utilize the tags and keywords from there?

Thank you for any clues.

Can I export only specified bookmarks, or a specific bookmark folder, or is it all or nothing? If I export the whole thing to a .json file or to an HTML file, can I then import only selected bookmarks. (I want to copy a bookmark folder from one Mac to another. Different OS versions, same Firefox versions.)

Thanks, Wimsey

I am not able to add or remove bookmarks. The bookmarks library is empty. I can't restore to any back up bookmarks. I restarted in safe mode. No bookmarks. I reset Firefox. No bookmarks. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. No bookmarks. I did a Revo Uninstall and cleared the registry. No bookmarks. I deleted the localstore.rdf. No bookmarks. This is kinda a deal breaker for me. I might have to go to Chrome or IE.
