How to retrieve my browsing history & bookmarks after Firefox auto-updated?

Kuphostiwe

Was trying to access Firefox as usual when it implies its auto-updating. And to my horror, my old browsing sessions, history & even bookmarks were totally deleted by the system after the updating. Is there any way to retrieve them?!

Hi, Please answer the question from Fred : is there a OldFirefoxProfile folder on your Desktop ? If there is : you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over the problem. Never work with original files.

If it s not please look here for a 2nd Profile with a older date :

Locations of everything in the Profile Folder :

  • bookmarks and history: places.sqlite
  • bookmark backups: compressed .jsonlz4 JSON backups in the bookmarkbackups folder
  • cookies.sqlite for the Cookies
  • formhistory.sqlite for saved autocomplete Form Data
  • logins.json (passwords) and key4.db (58+) or key3.db (57 and older) (decryption key) for Passwords saved in the Password Manager
  • if you only have key3.db then make sure to remove an existing key4.db
  • cert9.db (58+) or cert8.db (57 and older) for (intermediate) certificates stored in the Certificate Manager
  • if you only have cert8.db then make sure to remove an existing cert9.db
  • persdict.dat for words you added to the spelling checker dictionary
  • permissions.sqlite for Permissions and possibly content-prefs.sqlite for other website specific data (Site Preferences)
  • sessionstore.jsonlz4 for open tabs and pinned tabs (see also the sessionstore-backups folder)

If is in neither place it is gone for good. Fyi for the future :

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
