Bookmarks won't copy from old profile to new

I had to totally rebuild my system from the bottom up. I had a copy of my old profile stored in the cloud, so I figured I was OK. When, I copied the files from the saved profile to my new profile, everything came over except my bookmarks. I copied the places.squlite and favicons.squlite files (which I understood to contain my bookmarks) separately and pasted them separately into the new profile, but to no avail. I used to keep a separate backup of my bookmarks, but when I learned that the bookmarks were kept in the profile, I stopped. How far up the creek have I gotten myself stuck, and is there a way to restore my bookmarks?

Make sure toolbars like the "Bookmarks Toolbar" are visible. Open the Customize page and set what toolbars (Show/Hide Toolbars) and toolbar items to display.

  • Right-click empty toolbar area => Customize
  • "3-bar" menu button => Customize
  • View -> Toolbars
    *you can tap the Alt key or press the F10 key to show the hidden Menu Bar temporarily
  • check that "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" is on the Bookmarks Toolbar
  • if "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" is not on the Bookmarks Toolbar, drag it back from the Customize palette to the Customize page to the Bookmarks Toolbar
  • if missing items are in the Customize palette, drag them back from the Customize page to the toolbar
  • if you do not see an item on a toolbar and in the Customize palette, click Restore Defaults in the Customize palette window to restore the default toolbar set.

An update: I restored my bookmarks from a backup. Everything shows up in my bookmark manager, but the bookmark toolbar entries don't show up in the toolbar, and the "Other Bookmarks" button doesn't appear. How do I fix this?

cor-el, thanks. When I was reconstructing the toolbar, I forgot to move the "Bookmarks Toolbar Entries" icon to the bookmarks bar. I apologize for my bad eyes and memory; as I said, I had to rebuild my system from scratch, and doing so left me a bit "fumble-brained."

Happy Holidays!
