I'm not sure what happened but my bookmarks are all gone & browsing history. I think Firefox might have crashed. I tried restarting Firefox but my bookmarks are all gone. When I click on "Bookmarks" on the top menu, there are only a couple main things there like, "Show all bookmarks", "Bookmark this page", "Bookmark Toolbar", but all my bookmarks are gone, nothing else there. I tried "Import & back up" but it doesn't work, it doesn't restore the bookmarks when I click on any of the dates. I tried renaming the places.sqlite file(that's Ive done before that worked before) but that isn't even working now. I think I might have to go back a day or 2 & it might be trying to restore them from last session or something & it isn't working. I still cant get any of my bookmarks back. Could you please help me to get my bookmarks back? I would really appreciate it. Thank you very much!!!

Are there any places.sqlite.corrupt files present?

Did you remove all places.sqlite files including possible places.sqlite-shm and places.sqlite-wal files?

Did you try to restore an older bookmarks backup in the bookmarkbackups folder?

  • Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import & Backup -> Restore

The name of an automatically created JSON bookmarks backup in the bookmarkbackups folder includes a total item count (folders and separators included) and an hash value to prevent saving the same backup more than once.

  • bookmarks-YYYY-MM-DD_<item count>_<hash>.jsonlz4.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
