The Bookmarks are all there, but the url is missing. None of the extensions (including ones I've paid for are there)
The logins weren't there, but are now restored from a previous install.
What I have done...
1. exported bookmarks to html and checked them out there. They were broken there as well.
2. Refreshed Firefox,
3. Restarted the PC.
4. Uninstalled Firefox (and discovered that I had both X32 and X64 on my machine) - uninstalled both. 5. Reinstalled Firefox x64 (current version 86.0.1)
6. the places.sqlite files from previous restores have the same problem.
I've started to refresh the links for the toolbar which has taken me awhile. I don't want to have to do it for all my hundred's of bookmarks.
Ideally what I'd like to do is uninstall the latest update, look at the bookmarks to see if they are still stuffed, and if the extensions are there. If they are ok, then I want to back the bookmarks to html. Reinstall the update, then restore the bookmarks. (And make a list of the extension names so I can reinstall them).
My guess is either that the sqlite file has corrupted, or the update has changed the file layout for the bookmarks, etc, and it's unable to interpret the links.
