I tried to follow the instructions on the Mozilla website, and tried different methods several times, but I am unable to export my bookmarks. Every time I select the "Export bookmarks to html", and save to a target location, the target location is empty, i.e. no file(s). What I did:

Click on Library icon, then click on Show All Bookmarks Click on "All Bookmarks" in the left pane, then select the 3 items in the middle pane (Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu, and "Other Bookmarks" Click on "Import and Backup" Click on "Export bookmarks to HTML" Provide a target location and click on SAVE

When I view the target location folder, it is empty.

Thanks for any help.

If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page

In case errors are reported with "Verify Integrity" close and restart Firefox and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

  • keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created

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.
