My bookmarks and folders with bookmarks have started to disappear. I think it started when I added my cellphone to sync. I have over 3000 bookmarks, so it will take me many hours to try to recover these from an older backup, because I can't do a direct restore, because I've added more bookmarks since I discovered they started to disappear for me . And I have all my bookmarks lying in the "Bookmark menu" Why is this happening?
I've tried to solve it by importing the older backup which is an html file, but it settles as its own "bookmark menu", and using "cut and paste" all these bookmarks take too long, and Firefox's built-in editor for bookmarks is a joke. Have also looked through a lot of different tips here to find a solution, but find nothing that helps. Is there any "Bookmark manager" program that can be used?

I know this has been asked before. And solutions included clearing browser cookies, disabling add-ons, resetting the browser, & coping urls and pasting into address bar. I've completely uninstalled Firefox and deleted all firefox data, profiles, user folders, etc. from my computer. Then used a freshly downloaded installer to reinstall Firefox, with a completely clean profile and no add-ons. I still get this error. I've even tried this with Firefox ESR (Extended support release).

I'm still using an older version of firefox to keep essential add-ons that Quantum no longer had. I'm having problems on a windows 7 computer with the version I have on it, and would like advice on the best way to proceed.
I had copied over my profile from a different computer where I'd been using FF55. I'd had some problems with 55, so I installed 52 on this computer, but using that profile. It's not working very well as I can't get vertical tabs or vertical tabs reloaded to work, it's also crashing fairly often for no apparent reason, etc. Now even the "+" symbol to add a new tab has disappeared from the tab bar, and I don't have a clue why or how to get it back!). For what it's worth, this isn't a malware/virus problem - I'm running McAfee and also periodically malwarebytes etc., and scans aren't finding problems. Computer has been restarted several times and so on, and I'm still having the problems. Could this be because the profile was from a firefox 55 version and it's being used on a FF52 version? Or would that not cause this sort of problem?
I don't want to go to 56 because I gather it won't be able to access my older saved sessions (I use Session Manager and those are the sessions I'm concerned about - so if this is NOT a problem, please let me know). I'm concerned about this because wiki says: "...Another change was the introduction of the mozlz4 format, a proprietary variant of the lz4 compression format (.mozlz4 and .jsonlz4 file extensions instead of .json.lz4 as per unix/linux standard). Session data is stored in the lz4 format instead of plain text. Firefox 56 can not recognize the legacy plain text session files, only the lz4-encoded ones...."
So I'm wondering if I should go to 55 on this computer, or 52ESR? I gather the ESR would have better security - but want to know if there's a difference in add-on compatibility or other features since 52ESR is, I gather, based on older code than 55?
If someone could talk me thru the pros and cons of using 55 versus 52ESR I'd sure appreciate it!!!
Also, I would be VERY grateful if folks could point me towards: 1. a reasonably safe site where we can search and install legacy add-ons 2. any webpage which has a good information showing which legacy add-ons now have reasonable replacements in the current FF version.
Why are some of my bookmarks empty (nothing but name) and have to recover them every few days recently?

Recently when I will go to the bookmark toolbar, many of my bookmarks are empty with no link in them and just a generic globe icon. You can click the link but it doesn't do anything because there is nothing there. I have been restoring them every few days the last 3 or 4 times, but would like to know what is the cause of it. Sometimes some of them are gone entirely. It's like they are dying. Many of them are pretty old, maybe 30 years or so, but I don't want to loose them. Thanks in advance for any help.

so, hi, im using Firefox Quantum a download failed i right-clicked the entry on the download list, selected Go To Download Link (to re-download it) and removed the entry the problem is that Firefox didnt go to root.com/download but to root.com and now i dont have the correct download link
is there a way to at least retrieve the filename of the download? is there a log or something? how does firefox delete the temporary files? i couldn't find anything in the recycle bin? would a file recovery software be of a any help? i was in private mode so there is no history of the link either thank you

so, i'm working on a completely local project. specifically, i'm working on an interactive bandcamp liner note download, and the actual target is mostly flac (although it should work for mp3, too). for this reason, i can't be downloading software, and i'm not interested in running scripts. the user needs to be able to launch a notes.html file locally and be able to run a local playlist of the local files s/he just bought in the document.
i understand that it's as easy as directing to the proper m3u file via the html5 tag, iff you're using safari. but, i'm not using safari, and i'd guess most of my audience isn't, either.
what happens in both firefox 54 (windows 7) and a 60x v of chrome on a chromebook is that the controls load, but i can't press play.
this is an old laptop, and i can't run nightly builds on it. but, is there a specific version of firefox where this flips over and starts working?
basically, what i want is for this to work or for some very close analog of it to work:
<source src="../playlist.m3u" type='audio/x-mpegURL'>
