Did a clean uninstall / reinstall of Firefox but failed to back bookmarks on my Mac. I back up the Laptop each week, so assume that bookmarks are there.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Found the answer elsewhere!.....Needed to "import/replace" the Firefox (invisible) folder from the "Seagate Back Up External Drive", using the "most recent back up to the external drive. The folder would REPLACE the existing "invisible folder" in the Firefox app.of that latest back up....I works.
