I copy and paste my Firefox Profile to a folder on a separate drive as a form of backing up my profile and of course, my bookmarks. Earlier to day, instead of coping and pasting my Firefox profile, accidentally cut and pasted my profile; when I realized what I had done, I just copied my profile from the backup folder back to the Mozilla Firefox profile folder. After doing so, I launched Firefox and found some bookmarks missing but strangely others were still present. I did not alter my profile in any way and do not understand why coping and pasting my profile back did not restore "all" my bookmarks; I also cannot delete any of my bookmarks.
I have tried restoring my bookmarks from a previous date under the Library but I have been as of yet unsuccessful as well as trying to back up my bookmarks in the Library to a .json and/or a .html file but when I look in the folder I set to backup to, there is nothing. Would anyone have any idea what I am doing? Any and all assistance will be greatly appreciated.
