How to restore a bookmarks backup without having errors?

I have backupped my bookmarks using Firefox's functionality to do it automatically and saved the file to an external HD before I was making a clean installation of Windows, which means all my files were removed. Later on, after re-installing Firefox, I tried to use the backup I had so I can have all my bookmarks once again, but when I try to look for that file, it seems it has the wrong format (a regular "File" instead of JSON or HTML, not sure which one of them should it be). So I tried to change it to "*.JSON" and it still didn't shoe up in the dialog box. So I tried "*.HTML", which DOES show up but everytime I try to import it, it actually does nothing.

I really need this file since it contains many sites that I need. Thanks in advance.

Test post by a moderator looking at workflow in AAQ in prod.

Contributors please do not answer this post. I will add a link to the relevant discussion later.

Noting

  • I did not actaully hit the 800 charlimit, or if I did it posted
  • I still am able to edit after posting, including TS comments. Not sure an ordinary user can do that
  • User editing apparently has a problem
    • TS information additional comments are lost if posting from [Showdetails >>]
    • If posting from prior TS page any Installed plugin edits are lost
  • The "Guess" showed only 4 of my 6 ask to activate plugins
  • My deactivated plugins do not display, by contrast deactivated extensions do display
  • System info not user friendly in this instance, was that due to my edits ?
    I will repeat as a straight question with no edits.

N.B. Trying here as opposed to alizom as I wanted to be certain what a user sees. I will use someone eles's email address to set up an ordinary user account first.

Test post by forum moderator John99 using another person account. To check an ordinary users experience.

  • Yes editing information messes up the display.
  • Ordinary users still have opportunity to edit TS & Installed plugins afterwards but that easily messes up the display.

I keep trying to get rid of old bookmarks and reorganize the one I have, but the next day all the hard work just disappears. I have to reload stuff from Monday when this first started happening but even then only some stuff is carrying over, folders I create to put stuff in remain but they're empty. I already tried the places.sqlite option twice but that isn't doing anything.

Have been emailing Fredmcd, but he has disappeared. When I click on Bookmarks goes to a dialogue box instead of actually bookmarks. Then I have to click on 'from Internet explorer." I have done 3 uninstalls 2 without personal settings, did a reset issue stays the same. very annoying. See from above FF has a LOT of dialogue box issues. Would seem this is a design issue can't get rid of. Please advise. HP says its a FF27 issue. I have Windows 8.1 which seems to have lot of compatibility issues with FF27! I have a screen shot of this issue.

thanks

What I was able to do before FireFox 29 was to hide the blue folder icons in the Bookmarks Toolbar, leaving only the Name of the folder and the downward pointing arrow ∇.

I believe I was able to do that with a simple button or check box from View > Toolbars > Customize... but not, as I recall, with any extension or add-on. It seemed to be part of FireFox. Now, this feature has been thrown down Orwell's Memory Hole and I have been given some solutions that require manually editing a userChrome.css text file that is supposed to have some additional code added to some existing code to a file that I don't seem to have found using the advice given. That file is supposed to go into a Profile folder that apparently has a different name than simply Profile.

I have been given some advice stating "You can..." but I am not sure this is an adventure that will lead to a serious mistake or just the beginning of a long learning arc. I think I want the buttons back.

A serious answer would have all the steps. Yeah, I'm not going to learn on my own, because this is a feature that was removed and ought not to have been.

Hello Everyone,

I have two windows 7's workstations. One workstation is a new install. The other is a laptop. On the new install I loaded Firefox 29. Didn't sync with the old sync server. So I upgraded the laptop to Firefox 29. I signed up for the new sync on both workstations. On the new install workstation no book marks have been moved from the laptop..

Any help would be great.

This is more of an observation (rather than a question) that IMO would require some attention from Mozilla as this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/987165) seems to answer the issue. .. But since that can't be commented on I'll add that what (to my view) is missing is a simple "Register to Mozilla support" link on the main page -- or/and the Signin page. That's what one sees on pretty much all similar websites/services and that's what one would expect here. The current logic is a bit weird: Ask a question or Become a contributor didn't pull me in. And since the above linked question shows that I'm not the only one I'm sure there are many more confused users.

10/4/2014 Thank you Cor-el for your rapid response to my original question. I do believe I downloaded the Places Maintenance add on. But I have no idea as to how to access that add on and run it, if that's what I should do. I did try to restore a backed up HTML bookmark file. This seems to have changed the "wrong" URL that I get to a different wrong URL. Thanks.
