What the living H.. happened to my bookmarks????? Version 92.0 installed and NOW ALL MY BOOKMARKS .. .YEAR SO PROFESSIONAL BOOKMARKS are GONE. I tried to restore from an older version and got the message that they were corrupted, unusable. GONE. Someone needs to fix this like yesterday.

Firefox normally keeps automatically created compressed .jsonlz4 backups in the bookmarkbackups folder. Did you check that out ?

Are they corrupt or are the files gone?

jscher2000 has a tool on his website to extract out your bookmarks and save them to an HTML-format bookmark export file. If you want to try it, here is the page:

https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/bookbackreader.html

To open the bookmarkbackups folder in Finder, use the "Open in Finder" button in the first table on the Troubleshooting Information page, and double-click into bookmarkbackups where you should see several dated files. From there you can drag and drop onto the conversion tool.

To import the HTML file, see the steps in this article: Import Bookmarks from an HTML file.
