I stand corrected, my bookmarks ARE gone, not just the pull down menu.

I just posted a question re: my pull-down bookmarks menu disappearing. I stated in the question that my bookmarks themselves weren't gone, just the menu. I stand corrected. They are indeed "gone", i.e. completely inaccessible.

After the last upgrade my bookmarks disappeared. What happened? Saved passwords too. History too. Also want to add that it is difficult to get support when needed. Maybe I need to go with Safari.

Firefox (10.0002 64-bit) is bookmarking every single page I visit, making the bookmarking function useless to me. I just noticed this problem recently. Someone posted a similar question in 2016:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1077320

He seemed to think the problem was related to an app -- but someone else posted to that question and they did not have any new apps. Nor do I. I haven't knowingly installed any apps to Firefox in the last year.

Can someone please tell me how to stop the bookmarking function from booking pages automatically without my input?

Thanks.

Hi all,

First, I apologize if this is a duplicate topic. In the association I work in, I got a colleague of mine that has the same issue as me. We work as IT technicians in different social establishments and we've been recently informed by few users that when they launch FF, all their customization is gone (bookmarks, passwords...), as if FF launches a new profile. We've noticed that it seems to be occuring with one of the latest FF version or even the latest one. We've tried by taking back the datas from the old profile folder and copying it in the new one. On my end, it worked with a user, but on my colleague's end it seems not cause even by copying the datas, FF has reproduced the same behaviour.

Could you help with that ?

Thanks a lot

I own a mac and had to erase all my data from my computer in order to upgrade to new system. Issue is - the apple support person did not remind me to save down my firefox browser data/bookmarks. Now my mac is updated and it's like a brand new computer. I searched previous forums and apparently firefox automatically saves down your data but I don't see it in the appropriate folder (Old Firefox Data >bookmarkbackups) - I see data from 2016 and 2017. Can I recover these bookmarks?? I had a lot of important ones saved..

I downloaded version 101.0.1 and lost most of my bookmark TAGS! These help me find things in my many bookmarks.

Hi support team,

I have met this issue twice. Before I retired my old PC, I did click the "sync now". However, when I login in Firefox in my new PC, I found the bookmarks are very very out of date. Because my old PC was formatted, I lost my latest bookmarks in Firefox.

Could you help with this?

Trying to bookmark a pdf, it's on the same location across my devices, but my devices have different usernames, so I added "%userprofile%" to the filepath so that it opens on any device. The issue is that when I enter this into the Bookmark URL bar, it automatically sticks "25" next to the % characters, which makes the bookmark unusable.

"C:\Users\%userprofile%\Documents\example.pdf" automatically becomes "file:///C:/Users/%25userprofile%25/Documents/example.pdf"

Also, as I just discovered now when I pasted this URL into this post, a second "25" is inserted, becoming: "file:///C:/Users/%2525userprofile%2525/Documents/example.pdf"
