When walking through the FF troubleshooting page on missing bookmarks I got to the Library and Restore / Backup Bookmarks and then got the error Unable to Process the Backup File.

Earlier I had tried the Profile change as suggested to "place.sqlite.old and that didn't work.

I did find these files (see screenshot) but I don't know how to use them. Thanks for any help. (I knew I shouldn't have updated!!)

Hi davidjfay:

You should be able to restore your bookmarks from the 11-01 backup or the 10-30 backup as per:


See Note 1 at the end which is a copy and paste of the instructions from [A]

Cheers !


Note 1

Caution: Restoring bookmarks from a backup will overwrite your current set of bookmarks with the ones in the backup file.

Click the Library icon , then click Bookmarks. Scroll to the bottom and click Show all Bookmarks.
In the Library window, click the Import and Backup button and then select Restore..
Select the backup from which you want to restore, in your case either the 11-01 or 10-30 backup:.
The dated entries are automatic backups..
Choose File... lets you restore from a manual backup.
After choosing a backup, your bookmarks from that file will be restored. Close the Library window.

The name of an automatically created JSON bookmarks backup in the bookmarkbackups folder includes a total item count (folders and separators included) and an hash value to prevent saving the same backup more than once. You also see this count in the Restore menu drop-down list.

  • bookmarks-YYYY-MM-DD_<item count>_<hash>.jsonlz4.
