Firefox has synced my bookmarks from two different accounts. Now, I have lost all my folders.
I had two different Firefox accounts on my old computer. I recently bought a new PC, downloaded Firefox and then signed in using one of my accounts login information. Later I needed bookmarks from my other account so I signed off and closed the browser. I reopened the browser and signed on with the different account info. Firefox then started syncing both accounts. My bookmarks are now a total mess and all the years worth of folders created for my bookmarks are gone. I think all the bookmarks are there, just not the folders. I had made hundreds of folders over the years and had everything organized. Now they are all lost. I am devastated. Is there any help for me? Thanks for your time.
If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync while performing maintenance/repair efforts to files in the Firefox profile folder.
Try to restore an older bookmarks backup formn the bookmarkbackups folder.
- Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import & Backup -> Restore
The name of a JSON bookmarks backup file includes a total item count (folders and separators included) and an hash value to prevent saving the same backup more than once.
- bookmarks-YYYY-MM-DD_<item count>_<hash>.jsonlz4.
In case of problems you can check for problems with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history) in the Firefox profile folder.
