All of my bookmarks are now missing and cannot find a backup anywhere. Could not find anything that helped on the help pages.

What about the rest of your profile? Settings, bookmarks, history, passwords . . . .

First, reboot the computer.


Restore Bookmark Backups

Firefox automatically makes backups of the bookmarks. These are stored in the bookmarkbackups folder.

Open the Bookmarks Manager; Press the Alt or F10 key to bring up the toolbar, and select Bookmarks. Hot key is <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> B. Firefox 84+ <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> O.

Once the window is open, at the top of the page, press the button labeled Import and Backup. Select Restore. From the list, pick the file you want and click it.

The backups are stored in a jsonlz4 file named something like this; bookmarks-2016-06-29_1424_enD1GTH ya0JmicnYWg4V4g==.jsonlz4

In this example; 2016-06-29 = date created 1424 = number of entries.

Have not had any luck with your suggestions and have not found any backup Bookmarks. Not sure that I understand all of the instructions as well.
