I recently turned on an old computer that I hadn't used in a while which had Firefox on it and was still logged in to my Mozilla account (but it was locked out of the account and needed me to manually log in again to access all the features). Before I did so I wanted to clear the old bookmarks on my old computer's Firefox so these wouldn't get added to my Mozilla account when I synchronized it, so I deleted them thinking only the bookmarks on my old computer's old Firefox would be deleted. But when I went on my laptop's Firefox to synchronize and make sure my Mozilla account was up to date all of my bookmarks were gone on this device as well, and now I can't seem to get them back - is there any way to retrieve these just deleted bookmarks? They took years to add, from many websites that I don't know the names of, and upon which I completely relied on the bookmarks to use.

Firefox keeps automatically created compressed jsonlz4 backups in the bookmarkbackups folder.

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. You also see this count in the Restore menu drop-down list.

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

Thanks so much, that's exactly what I was looking for!
