Hi, please could I have some help with the following?

I had firefox installed on the same partition as the windows I booted from. Due to an error this partition would no longer boot and I had to install windows and firefox clean on a seperate drive.

I've managed to get the partition working again and can access all the files on it again. Unfortunately when i load up the firefox on the previously failed partition it appears to load up the same version as I installed most recently. None of my old book marks are in the menu which is what I am trying to access. I've looked on here for help and the following don't seem to apply to me...

- There's no profiles folder in the old partition so I can't find Places.sqlite. - Troubleshooting>Show Folder points to the application data on the new install drive - There doesn't appear to be backup.json files on the old partition

So my question is is there anywhere on the old partition you can think where my old bookmarks may be stored?

Any suggestions would be appreciated Many thanks JD

I just put Windows VII on this computer and consequently had to install FF 17 (I think I still had fifteen before.)

On this new version their is no single "Bookmark" button to click to access my favorites and I'm being forced to go through the "Bookmarks" thing to the right which gives me no access to the majority of my links.

The old method was just fine, why did they have to screw with it!? How do I get the single button back so I can open the entire bookmark list?

I had went into the task manager and accidentally deleted the firefox task the was going. When I went back on firefox, all my bookmarks were gone. I tried restarting it, without any luck. I tried getting the backups, to find I had none. Nothing has worked for me. Thought originally I was trying to get google chrome on my computer, only for that not to work, so I'm not sure if that may have messed it up or not. Please help me.

Hi, I am a long time user of firefox and am in the habit of putting helpful comments in the <properties> field of my bookmarks. I regularly export my bookmarks and in looking at my exported bookmark files I can see my comments. However, due to a PC problem I have, for the first time, had to import my bookmarks. They come in without error but minus my handy little comments. I am hoping some clever soul will be able to tell me how to import bookmarks with my comments as it will take me ages to recreate all these little comments for each bookmark. Thank you

Firefox 17.0.1 Win7

Some time ago -- somewhere and somehow -- I found a way to display all of my Bookmarks / Bookmark folders in a vertical column on the left side of my monitor. This list of Bookmarks "stuck" and appeared at all times.

It seems I must have recently accidentally clicked on something to cause this Bookmark list to disappear.

How do I get it back?

My objective is to make a global edit to the bookmarks in one folder. To do so, I exported to an HTML file, opened that file in Notepad, deleted all the other bookmarks, and did a search-and-replace to correct the ones I was trying to fix. Saved the file and attempted to import into Firefox. I *can* open the file and see the links, and I can use Import and Backup to get to the file and select it for import. However, after that, NOTHING happens.

Why is it so complicated to import my old Firefox bookmarks? I have a harddrive from my old computer (march 2012) in a ext hard drive enclosure which is attached to my new laptop via USB, and I can NOT find a simple way to import my old bookmarks. I wasted several hours today trying to do that. I have bookmarks-2012-02-07.json and I have places.sqlite. I want to >include< which ever file has my old bookmarks with the existing new bookmarks file. That’s it! Please don’t tell me to convert it HTML, it didn’t work.
