Firefox prompted me to update. I did. Then I only had two choices: exit or create a new profile, and since exit did nothing but close the program, I did the second thing. Now all of my bookmarks are gone - that I rely on for work. I need specific step-by-step instructions on how to get those back. I looked through several of the FAQs on this and none where helpful. I did not have a Firefox folder put on my desktop. Losing these bookmarks will be a major issue. Please help!

I've just updated my browser and all of my bookmarks have disappeared without a trace. I've tried every bit of useful information I could find here, but nothing seems to be working and even after following the Show All Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Restore, the only backup file that appears is one which has been automatically created with the new update. The "Old Firefox Data" folder mentioned in similar treads has saved only the most recent bookmarks after the update.

Any and all help will be appreciated, as I am extremely distressed at the thought of having lost so many important bookmarks forever.

dupe of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1139452

I want to be able to bookmark genealogy sources from personal, work, and library computers, and then bring them ALL together into Firefox bookmarks on my HOME computer. When using work, friends, or library computers (any computer other than my own, actually). I would like to "login" to a cloud based bookmarking system, update ONE set of permanent bookmarks there with NEW links, and then, finally, merge (or SYNC) that online set to my permanent Firefox bookmarks on my HOME computer system. Can anyone out there suggest a CLOUD BASED system capable of handling 1000s of bookmarks in nested folders, just like Firefox, which I could then IMPORT into FIREFOX on my HOME computer each time updates are added, thus maintaining the same folder structure???

I purchased a new laptop. I exported bookmarks to an html file on my desktop and copied them to a thumb drive. I then copied them to my new laptop. I then imported the bookmarks into Firefox on the laptop. They were magically added to the bookmarks on my desktop. It took a long time to delete the extraneous bookmarks.

How do I avoid this?
