all the bookmarks disappeared
All the bookmarks disappeared from Firefox 3.6.13 I browsed through all the articles in support about this, and tried the backup, but it didn't bring solution. I also checked the backup files in notepad, and all the older ones (except the today's) have the bookmarks, but still the restoration doesn't work! Firefox haven't created an alternative profile, I have only one in \Documents and Settings\[my name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\
Hope it works.Read this answer in context 👍 1

Meanwhile the bookmarks appeared again, so thank God, problem solved!
Actually, the problem is still there. A can see all my bookmarks in the roll down menu if I click on bookmarks in the menu bar, but they're not there in the bookmark window (that appears if you click on the bookmark icon in the menu bar) , and I can't find them either in the manage bookmarks panel. Please help! Thank you!
Ps.: if I repeat the restore function in manage bookmarks panel, then the bookmarks appear on the side Bookmark column, but they are doubled in the roll down menu! :-(((

Just to make things more interesting: each time I exit Firefox, all bookmarks disappear. (Even newly (during the last session) added ones.) When I restore the bookmarks, they appear in both the bookmarks column and in bookmarks roll down menu, but they don't appear in manage bookmarks panel. If I make an export or a html save, the file is empty although the bookmarks are present in the above mentioned places... Is it time to switch to Chrome?
Have a look at his rather long article
Meanwhile I suggest you make manual backups to suitably named files in case things get lost more permanently, and to mitigate against problems if sets of bookmarks are inadvertently overwritten.
Oops - corrected the link

The link you posted is trying to make a new article, id doesn't point to an existing one. (Bookmarks Lost.) Please reply with the correct link! Thanks! I can restore the bookmarks, the problem is, they don't remain! So I don't think the problem is an overwritten sets of bookmarks, I think it is a bug in Firefox.
Problem is probably more likley to be with your profile being corrupt or not modifiable, rather than a firefox bug, the article now I have corrected the link should, I hope help you.
An article listed in the article you linked for me seemingly solved the problem. This one: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Bookmarks%20not%20saved
Thank you! If the bookmarks still will be there tomorrow, I'll click on the "Solved It" button.
Hope it works.
So far so good
Worked for me. Thanks.
