Bookmarks will not export
I am running Firefox 59.0.2 on a Mac running OS X 10.11.6. My bookmarks will not export as html. I go to Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks > 'star icon' > Export Bookmarks to HTML... and then name the file and then click Save and NOTHING HAPPENS. This was happening on Firefox 57 as well. I have tried everything available on the Mozilla support pages and guides and NOTHING WORKS. Why can't I export my bookmarks to HTML?
Hi, sorry no idea why. Please grab a copy of your Profile :
Please Refresh but do this 1st: Delete your Cookies and Cache and TEST.
TEST....... If no issues then Extensions which need to be added back in 1 at a time and tested ..... Or it is your Profile : Make a new one and test ...:
If is your Profile :
Note: Any customization will revert back to default, you will also need to reinstall Extensions.
Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
(1) If you have a lot of bookmarks, export and backup may be very slow.
(2) I have a page that can convert a .json/.jsonlz4 backup file to a .html export file if you want to try that.
The automatic backups are stored in your profile folder, in the bookmarkbackups folder. See: Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data.
You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history) in the Firefox profile folder.
