Hello, I re-installed firefox and copied the backups from the old profile to the new profile. However, it is not complete - how do I find the bookmarks that were in the "other bookmarks folder" which is now empty and how do I find the bookmarks that were in my toolbar itself? Thank you.

Tried to reply to your email. It has not return. Here is a copy of report you requested. It is different from what you sent me.

> Task: invalidateCaches - Unable to invalidate caches > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I still have no bookmarks. I have restarted the computer a number of times. I also renamed the places.sqlite adding a 1 after places as it said in other directions. I have also refreshed.

Yesterday, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled after receipt of your response. It said all cookies, history, bookmarks etc transferred successfully. However, I keep getting the message “ and Bookmarks and history systems will not be functional because one of Firefox’s file is in use by another application. Some security software can cause the problem. I use McAfee, I’ve always used it. I have not changed it.

I did not do anything with favicon file as I don’t know what to do, I understand you can delete that. If there is a list of more than one, then what do I do.

As I indicated, I an NOT a technical person.

Please advise.

Thanks.

I have a problem with the bookmarks toolbar. If I display a dropdown menu and then move the mouse pointer over the menu entries, the next level of entries for a folder are not displayed. This doesn't apply to all the folders, some display the next level, some do not. This problem is getting progressively worse. All the entries are present on 'Bookmark Management' I use the latest version of Firefox on the latest version of Ubuntu.

I sync the bookmarks between several devices, the toolbar works properly on the other devices. (Ubuntu, Mac OS, Android)

Good day, I know that this question has been going around lately but I hope that it finds traction soon. I am not going to be able to use Firefox soon going forward due to the bookmark spacing. I know that it sounds a perhaps a bit picayune but it is ruining my experience and more than that, although it seems counter intuitive, I cannot take in the column or divide out items without them all spaced closely together. I will need to find another browser if I cannot have the old spacing back.... and I really prefer Firefox. Anyhow... Thanks for your time and for your service! Kind regards, Mark

a Refresh because Firefox was running slow, sometimes I'm not able to click my mouse to use as ENTER. Clicking my mouse for ENTER seems as if its not one of it's functions so I have to literally press the ENTER button on my keyboard. That's only one of my problems that I am having with Firefox. So I decided to REFRESH Firefox. Now my bookmarks are missing so I followed the steps and went to>> HELP> More Troubleshooting Info>>PROFILE folder>> Open profile >>bookmarkbackups but there's nothing in that folder, it's empty. So where are my Bookmarks? This is a headache that happens every time I have to REFRESH. I just want my Bookmarks back quickly & simple. I've looked in the OLD FIREFOX folder on my desktop & there's no Bookmarks in there either. I apologize for this article because I know it sounds like every other article about Bookmarks in here but I've become impatient and just want my Bookmarks back in place. It's like a wild goose chase with this issue.

My question has 2 parts the first part is that I am trying to create a folder under the 'All Bookmarks' folder in the manage bookmarks screen that goes to the Library window. Can that be done? Because all it allows me to do is create a new folder under Bookmarks Toolbar and Bookmarks Menu. I want another folder in essence that is like the 'Other Bookmarks' folder that is not a sub folder of any other folder except for 'All Bookmarks'.

My second part question is that I cannot delete or remove 'Other Bookmarks' from the Library/Manage bookmarks screen. I am Firefox 92.0.1 (64-bit). I just installed it today. None of the options I tried as far as right click on the toolbar/bookmarks toolbar/or the Other Bookmarks folder gives me an option to remove it. Is the only option to remove it to go into about:config?

I have attached a screenshot of my bookmarks showing what I am wanting to have done if possible. As you see from the screenshot I want to move everything in Crap Junk into its on main folder under All Bookmarks like like Bookmarks Menu and Other Bookmarks is currently preferably without using Bookmarks Menu.

Thanks.

After a recent update,I noticed the history is no longer being kept, I checked settings all is good there, also, I am unable to create a new bookmark and am unable to delete an existing bnookmark. I've gone through some of your help files but am unable to correct this. Is there a way to fix this without losing all my current bookmarks? Looked on the web for help but am unable to fix this.

Thank you in advance Dave Markowski

I just made the mandatory mistake of updating firefox to 92. Now I have no bookmarks whatsoever, and all of my settings are default crap. I can deal with the settings, but I require my bookmarks.

Mozilla was nice enough to overwrite the prior firefox.exe so I can ONLY access 92 (without bookmarks).

This will probably make me never use firefails again. FFS, mozilla, WTF?

I cannot find any way to disable, hide, or remove the Recently Bookmarked list from the bookmark section. These make this window unusable other than the bookmarks that are listed there. I have no use for Recently Bookmarked items to be listed anywhere. I have attempted all of "solutions" that pop up about fixing this issue, but none actually work.

There is no "Hide Recently Bookmarked" when you right click anything on that menu or others involving bookmarks. Similarly, there is no setting regarding it when you search in about:config as is claimed most of the time. Adding a bunch of meaningless bookmarks & deleting them, also does not clear the list as it seems to remember all the bookmarks.

I've found people complaining about this as far back as 49, and as recently as 66 and 78.

Good day, everyone

Lost bookmarks during changing hdd for a friend of mine. Didn't backed up bookmarks and, unfortunately, he didn't sync his profile. At least we set another ssd, I wiped affected drive before installation. So, I've managed to recover data from Firefox profile, but when I tried to recover bookmarks and bookmarks backups, firefox stated, that that it's unsupported file. From both places.sqlite and .jsonlz4 backups. I've dived deeper and here's what I tried reading similar problems: -Checked via SQLite Manager firefox extenshion -Installed SeaMonkey browser -Tried to restore hdd using different software: Recuva and recoverit (this managed to restore folders structure) -Other weird solutions which didn't help as well

If some of you have plenty of time to check it and convert to HTML- here're files i've worked with. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ukBrhubcLCK2_0B5lwsHmVkyQRsJhmQt?usp=sharing

P.s. last solution I thought about: restore the whole disk with operating system and profile, but I doubt that it'll work. Thank you in advance!

As of this morning, the 6 or 7 favourite bookmarks, I had displayed on the firefox tool bar have disappeared. I've tried all work arounds like- customizing the toolbar (no option to drag on bookmarks) dragging and dropping onto the tool bar no longer works.

I've managed to open them on the side bar but was wondering if anybody could explain how to have them constantly displayed on the horizontal tool bar?

Thanks in advance
