I updated Firefox today and all my previous bookmark list disappeared. I tried to use the "import and backup" tab and followed the directions of the Firefox page to backup and restore my previous bookmarks. Unfortunately, nothing happened. Could you please help me with possible advice/guidance on how to resolve this? This is the second time this happens, always when Firefox receives updates..

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You appear to be using the Developer Edition / Aurora pre-release version, which creates a new Profile upon installation or update on the Aurora channel. Open Options > General and tick or untick the box at the top which says Allow Firefox Developer Edition and Firefox to run at the same time. Once you restart [as told to] you will "toggle" over to the other Profile, where your bookmarks are - hopefully.

If you don't like "updates", why are you using an alpha-2 version that receives an update every day?

Hi,

Thank you for your answers and support. I never thought of cancelling the daily updates and you raised a simple point to my lack of IT awareness :)

Thank you.
