I know this Q was asked recently but I cannot follow the disjointed and part missing thread. Would appreciate if someone could give me a complete reply. I know how to display hidden files and find my Application Support folder but profile files are all several years old. I have up to date Time Machine backups.

I am running Firefox 58.0.2 on OSX but inadvertently ran Firefox 34 and now my v58 has lost all history and bookmarks.

Hi, I've just accidentally deleted my whole partition which I save the back up bookmark (.json). I did manage to recovered it from a program but it seem like Firefox unable to process it. And my Sync Data seem to be gone too. And I know nothing about json file (yeah, I did some research but it seem it's out of my range.) I guess anyone can help me?

Bookmark Backup No Longer Produces .json File!?!?

When I invoke Bookmarks/Show All Bookmarks/Import and Backup/backup... in Firefox 60.0.1, nothing seems to happen. I cannot find any file named bookmarks-yyyy-mm-dd.json (I didn't change the default file name but of course I had to select a directory) anywhere on my computer. Am I doing something stupid?

Last time I did this was 2017-12-20 -- no problems backing up and restoring bookmarks then -- but that was with an older version of Firefox (obviously). FYI I'm running the 64bit version on a 64bit Windows 7 SP1 system. -- jclarkw

Periodically Firefox will randomly bookmark the page I'm on without any prompting from me, and without telling me. I have no idea how often it does this, but every couple of weeks I'll scroll to the bottom of my bookmarks menu to discover anywhere from one to fifteen new bookmarks that I didn't put there. All will be pages I remember visiting within the time since I last looked, and some that I visit particularly often (like my homepage or my email page) will be bookmarked in duplicate as many as five times.

When I checked earlier today the bookmarks included (if I'm remembering correctly) Google (3 times), two or three different Wikipedia articles that I read earlier this week, my email inbox, 2 questions I'd answered on Yahoo! Answers within the last few days as well as my "My Activity" page on the same site, my email inbox (twice), my profile page on Sporepedia, and an article I'd recently read on some mythology blog that I neither follow nor recall the name of. I think there might have been one or two others, but I'm not certain. I've since removed all of these from the end of the list.

The first time this happened (that I'm aware of), there was a new separator after the last bookmark I'd actually put there and before the new ones (the new bookmarks are always added at the very end of the list, uncategorized), although I've since gotten rid of that separator and no more new separators have appeared.

Has anyone else had this issue? Do you know what might be causing it, or how to fix it?

Since I quit Firefox last night, my bookmarks and my saved passwords are all gone. I searched how to delete all the bookmarks and it's way too commplicated to say I did it on purpose.

Of course I could restore the only bookmarks file saved in my "profiles" folder but it seems it was created at the same time I closed Firefox. So it's empty..

I don't understand what happened but all my saved password have vanished too!

Everything was hunky dory until the awful v48 update. With no other changes to the system, bookmarks are now annoyingly slow to use. If I try to bookmark this page for example, FF has to think for 2-5 seconds before I can enter tags. After saving the bookmark it freezes for another 1-3 seconds before I can do anything else. This is an awful downgrade.

There were absolutely no other changes to my setup except for the update. I didn't change any preference, install an addon, or the like. In any case, I performed a safe mode test and this makes the pauses even worse.

What else can I try? Your FF knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

I want that little star back that opens the bookmarks sidebar. It's just to the left of the address field on XP in FP 25. But on Windows 8 in FP 25.0.1 it's not there. Instead there's a star that sometimes appears on the right of the address bar. But the star on the right does not open the bookmarks sidebar. It only displays a list of bookmarks and options, which do not include opening the sidebar. Has this option been removed and replaced with Ctrl B?

After restarting my computer, I got a new FF web page and ALL my bookmarks as well as history have been deleted.

How do I get them ALL back?

I have tried every solution on the Mozilla Help section - I cant do a Restore I have a very old version of backups - 2016

The online help system is going around and around in circles not giving any solutions. 4 hours of trying to sort this out is ridculous.

I really do not want to have to move to Chrome, I far prefer Mozilla, but I can not afford to loose more time sorting this problem out. If not resolved here, I will reluctantly have to restart all my bookmarks in Chrome.

I need all my bookmarks - some are work related.

Please Help
