I am a senior user and need assistance. I am unable to clear history. I followed directions sent by Fred McD, and inadvertently removed my profile. I have saved the profile, but cannot open Firefox replace the profile information. Can someone help?

Also, if someone should ask a question, how do I reply?

Thank you, Blair Ryan [removed email from public]

I cannot seem to retrieve any of my Firefox data. My bookmarks, plugins, login and password data are just gone. Years of data are gone. There is no "old profile data" and oddly enough none of the profiles have anything in them anyways. I have tried everything suggested and NOTHING has worked. Most people have no clue about the files and folders and definitely shouldn't be moving stuff around as most of the threads have suggested. What is a key3 or 4 file? Why should I have to move it? Where does one move it to? None of the threads on this topic are helpful and there's no way to just ask a person who works here? Considering this seems to happen to a lot of people it should be made much easier to do. I can't even import my old logins from Safari. Is years of my data just gone? If Im signed into my Firefox account shouldn't it be there, or what is the point of having one? I need a very easy solution to this extremely frustrating issue.

My firefox default page suddenly got scrambled. Top sites got completely reset and my highlights were changed to seemingly random pages. I checked my history for the pages listed in highlights and they were pages I had visited on the 25th of January, which is not recent. They also seemed to not update when I visit new sites which it usually does. I then noticed the history does not have any entries newer than 25th of January. And going to new pages does not get registered in the history.

I restarted in troubleshooting mode and history started to register again, but now it has deleted everything in my history. Logged in accounts and passwords seem to be unaffected. Same for bookmarks.

What happened? How can I fix this? Can I regain my lost history?

I tried an idea I read where renamed places.sqlite to places.sqlite.old and places.sqlite.corrupt to places.sqlite.corrupt which restored the situation to the first situation, where the history is frozen at 25th of January and does not update.

I installed the last update, my bookmarks kept being here but all my add-on, website shortcuts and firefox settings got removed. I checked the profiles to see if it was just another profile that was created but after checking each profile that was available they were all with the defaults settings without shortcuts and without add-on. I cannot recall all the add-on and websites saved so it is very important for me to recover them. What can I do?

The Bookmarks are all there, but the url is missing. None of the extensions (including ones I've paid for are there)

The logins weren't there, but are now restored from a previous install.

What I have done...

1. exported bookmarks to html and checked them out there. They were broken there as well.

2. Refreshed Firefox,

3. Restarted the PC.

4. Uninstalled Firefox (and discovered that I had both X32 and X64 on my machine) - uninstalled both. 5. Reinstalled Firefox x64 (current version 86.0.1)

6. the places.sqlite files from previous restores have the same problem.

I've started to refresh the links for the toolbar which has taken me awhile. I don't want to have to do it for all my hundred's of bookmarks.

Ideally what I'd like to do is uninstall the latest update, look at the bookmarks to see if they are still stuffed, and if the extensions are there. If they are ok, then I want to back the bookmarks to html. Reinstall the update, then restore the bookmarks. (And make a list of the extension names so I can reinstall them).

My guess is either that the sqlite file has corrupted, or the update has changed the file layout for the bookmarks, etc, and it's unable to interpret the links.

how do I restore history and bookmark files? I have Linux mint 17.7.1 Rebecca. There was a message that there was three updates waiting (one of which was from Firefox). I got the message all three downloaded successfully and I was "up to date". My normal boot up screen was now replaced with a firefox info screen. All bookmarks and history disappeared. I am not familiar with Linux so if there is a restore to prev fix I would be grateful for a step by step fix. This same thing happened on my windows 7 os when I got an update message but that was a simple fix of just restoring to previous day. The Firefox version that is the latest offending # 78.7.1

My PC (running Windows 10) crashed and when I restarted I'd lost all of my bookmarks plus I was prompted to create a new user profile. I'm running Firefox 89.0.1 I've tried following the information to find and restore my bookmarks but when I try this all Firefox prompts me is to import from another browser platform (which I don't use). Any ideas?

When newest FF version opens, it cannot see any of the data that is in each of my three older profiles. I've switched to each one and each one appears empty with the new version. Is there some new step to take in this version when switching profiles? How to bring an older version of Firefox and older profiles from Backup to replace what's now unworkable... and regain my important data? Thank you for your timely, much needed help.

Hello all. I seem to have a new version of Firefox installed on my computer, or an update has made it a newer version (89) and now it does not save my passwords. When I close down the laptop and re start it the next time I want to use it and go to firefox, none of the paswords I had thought I'd saved previously are there. This is very frustrating as I have a lot of places I visit which I had, in previous times using an earlier version of firefox, saved passwords which populated the correct places. I am no techie so really don't understand what has happened. Every time I want to get onto even my email, I have to leaf through my black book to find the necessary password and do it all manually.

Please can anyone help?

Laptop had issues booting (icky Dell and Windows 11).

When I rebooted and opened Firefox, I was prompted with a Password Required dialog box and a request to "Please enter your Primary Password."

I've never set a primary password, or a master password when that term was used.

I've seen I can reset my primary password, but I lose my saved logins. I know that's not too hard to re set up....

But why am I being asked to enter a password I've never set?

Firefox for Windows Version 93.0 (64-bit)
