Bookmarks saved to a uniquely named bookmarks "folder" using "Bookmark All Tabs" not exporting.

I used the Bookmark All Tabs feature to save a group of bookmarks into bookmark "folders". I did that by right-clicking on one of the tabs, choosing "Bookmark All Tabs". For "Folder Name" I entered "Watches". The default entry in the "Folder" field was "Bookmarks Menu", which I did not change. When I look at my list of bookmarks there is a separate "folder" named "Watches" that contains all the bookmarks I saved. So far so good. The problem came when I used "Export Bookmarks to HTML..." When I opened the "bookmarks" folder I noticed that the name "Watches" appeared on the page, but none of the actual "Watches" bookmarks were there. I thought that maybe they were contained somewhere within the bookmarks file, but I just could not see them. However, after I imported the bookmarks into IE none of the "Watches" bookmarks were there.

Why are the "Watches" bookmarks not included within the exported "bookmarks" file? I've searched Google but haven't seen where anyone else has mentioned this problem.

Incidentally, I have other bookmarks I've saved the same way (i.e., "Bookmark All Tabs"), and none of them are being exported either. Also, doing the export with all add-ons disabled made no difference.

Thanks.

Problems with bookmarks and history not working properly can be caused by a corrupted places.sqlite database file.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.

cor-el, thanks for replying.

I read the information on those web pages. Here's what I did:

First, I ran the Places Maintenance add-on and then tried to export the bookmarks again. That didn't help. The same problem occurred.

Before changing any Firefox settings or any files in the application folder, I decided to work around the problem to save all my bookmarks. I "moved" all the bookmarks from the bookmark "folders" (the ones not being exported) to the general "Bookmarks Menu". At that point all my bookmarks were all listed individually on the Bookmarks Menu. I then deleted the empty bookmark folders. After that, I was able to export *all* my bookmarks to an html file, but of course they were not organize the way I wanted them.

Next I jumped straight to deleting the bookmarks folder and the places.sqlite file within my Firefox profile folder. I then restarted Firefox, opened a few web sites and used the "Bookmark All Tabs" feature to setup some bookmarks the way I had them before. Then I tried exporting those bookmarks to see what the resulting HTML file would contain. Just as before, the HTML file showed the name of the folder, but none of the bookmarks within the folder.

I then disabled every plug-in and add-on, restarted Firefox in "safe mode" and again tried exporting the bookmarks. Same problem.

I then "reset" Firefox and again tried exporting the bookmarks. Same problem.

At this point, I decided to take the "shotgun" approach. I uninstalled Firefox with the option of removing my entire application data Firefox profile, and re-installed Firefox. I setup some bookmarks as before and tried exporting them. Problem "solved".

So unfortunately I don't know what caused the problem, but it's "fixed" now. I intend to re-install all the add-ons I used previously. After I install each one I will try exporting the bookmarks to see if any of the add-ons cause the problem I was having.
