I created a 2nd profile for use at work. Initially my new profile came up with my personal bookmarks toolbar - which I use a lot. I assumed (bad idea) this was a copy and that I could edit it and modify it for work. It turned out that I was changing bookmarks toolbar for both profiles. I was hoping to use two different bookmarks toolbars one for each profile.

If my assumption was correct and I should be able to have independent profiles where did I go wrong?

Hello,

I just switched to MacOS Big Sur, and while doing so, I decided to do a clean install. Before doing so, I synced my Firefox accountt, wanting to save all my bookmarks and favorites, etc. Now when I signed in to Firefox after the installation, my data is nowhere to be found, and it seems like the current, clean Firefox with no bookmarks etc. has been synced to my Firefox account. Is there a way to restore my data from a previous sync file? I have a lot of data I need for my projects saved up.

Thank you.

Yesterday I sorted and deleted bookmarks in the sidebar. I also deleted most of the bookmarks in the top ribbon (some were moved to the sidebar). Today all the deleted bookmarks came back into the top ribbon after I visited a couple of new webpages. I have also noticed earlier that some bookmarks that I delete in the sidebar keep coming back again the next time I open Firefox. If these are bookmarks that I have moved, they now appear in both the old and new place.

Update: Firefox randomly glitched and wouldn't allow any kind of click-and-drag behavior anywhere on URL or bookmark bar. Required clearing cache to fix, process restart didn't fix it.

Hi guys & gals, Woke up this morning to a Mozilla update (version 82) & I cannot for the life of me get any of my Bookmarks back. I have tried restoring from Show All Bookmarks, but no dates are populating. I have tried the Mozilla Profile on my PC, also with no luck. The only thing I haven't done is restored my PC to a previous time. This is very frustrating!

Any assistance would be most appreciated. Cheers Max

I had a computer crash, and I lost just about everything.

I had backups of my computer in a portable hard drive, and I am trying to recover my Bookmarks from that portable drive. I uploaded a file called "Old Firefox Data." The file shows in my computer as Type: File Folder. I can not find a way to open the files. I think they are JSON files. Researching the internet I am told that the JSON file can be opened with Notepad, but that does not work.
Please advise.

Firefox was running slow so it asked if I wanted to "restore." Little did I know that meant it would ask me to "sign up/sign in" to a firefox account and give me a blank slate. By blank slate I mean all of my bookmarks are gone including the ones I use across the toolbar to access information to WRITE MY BOOK. How can firefox not warn me of this and then make it so difficult to get it back? All these tech guys think they have everything figured out...Anyways, I read numerous articles and fallowed step by step and it simply won't allow me to "restore" the folder I found containing my bookmarks ( inside the OLD firefox Data folder that is now sitting on my desktop. Please help. It jsut says unable to process backup file. It also doesnt let me click on the folder. it says open the folder and reveals individual bookmarks which then can be opened but it still just says unable to process.
