Didn't want, Didn't NEED, Didn't want to use firefox ever again.

5 YEARS OF BOOKMARKS GONE, FROM BEING FORCED INTO USING LOCKWISE.

Instead of the OLD, tried and true bookmarks system.

Tell me how i can get them back?

go on....you know it's impossible.

"With LOCKSAFE you'll keep your passwords more safe and secure" BS

So go on, how does one STRIP out the LOCKSAFE? How does one revert back to their bookmarks before this person that forced a addon upon us?

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.

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.

Lockwise is the Password Manager, so if there are issues with Lockwise then you would have lost the passwords.

You talk about losing bookmarks, so is your problem about losing passwords or about losing bookmarks ?
