The Firefox updater only updates to version 20. I have done that. I have then tried to restore bookmarks from a known good date - no joy. Nothing happens.

Finally updated to version 22 but still no bookmarks. I've tried restoring from various dates when I know that the bookmarks were working but nothing happens.

The places.sqlite issue is above my ability. I've used firefox for many years and have loved it but I think I'm going to have to abandon it and go to IE. I don't really like doing that but I really need my bookmarks and losing them is a major blow!

Thank you for your efforts, however. I appreciate it.

I followed the instructions above "•https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Bookmarks+not+saved#w_fix-the-bookmarks-file ". It gets to a point where it says to right click on places.sqlite. I find no such file when I do a search of all files.

You might need to Show hidden files, folders, and drives in Windows.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/show-hidden-files-in-windows-7/

That standard setting in Windows hides files in the WIndows Explorer and in Search.

The instructions are incorrect in the http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/show-hidden-files-in-windows-7/ file. when you click on "Control Panel" from the START menu you do not get a box as described. Instead you get a vertical list of about 60 things to choose from and" Appearance and Personalization" is not one of them so I'm stuck.

In your profile folder, instead of places.sqlite, delete places file.

Does not compute. I don't understand what you asked me to do. I was eventually able to see the places.sqlite file and it is NOT marked read only.

It doesn't matter whether the file is read-only or not. What matters is that the places.sqlite file can be corrupted and Firefox may not be able to update the database properly.

You can give it a try and move places.sqlite to another location or rename the files and delete all other places files if there are any present.
This should make Firefox rebuild the bookmarks from a JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

Thanks to all who offered help. It has finally gotten too difficult for me to do all of the things suggested so I've switched to IE and am rebuilding "favorites" (as they call them) over there. Again thanks to all who tried to help.

Did you ever move or delete the places.sqlite file? That would likely had fixed your bookmark problem.

No, did not. There are other places.* files involved and confusing issues about them so I gave up. I suppose at this point there's no reason why I shouldn't delete places.sqlite since I won't be using Firefox anyway. I may try that.

Yep, just move them all to another folder, then try to restore bookmarks from backups.
