Hello, My FF export to html backup stops half-way ! Here is the problem: Untill last June 2022 this backup was doing fine to reach the usual more than 65.000 mb. & gradually building up with every bookmark I add. But last month all that changed when the option started to stop half-way. Meaning it stopped at the level of more than 17.000 mb !!! Which is unbelievably LOW. Today Aug 3, 2022, I retried the operation on my usb stick. And FF export gave me the same results (with the little difference of the few bookmarks I added in the meantime). I didn't find any solution in the FF help pages to help me settle this problem. So any anything to fix this will be appreciated. I'm running windows 10 home & FF 103.0.1 (32 bit)

Background; Yesterday I had corrupted file in Windows 10. Windows 10 wouldn't open and the solution was to reinstall Windows but save my data but lose the apps. When I reinstalled Firefox, all of my book marks were gone.

I have gone to the support articles provided and pulled and tried to locate my "old" profile. I couldn't my last attempt was to go the Profiles Manager ( about Profiles). I see the Profile default and I see the Profile default release. I have switched between the two and neither are My Old Profile.

The question: I want to be sure I have exhausted all possibilities in locating my Old Profile, before i start the manual rebuild process?

Also I have by data backed up in Carbonite, but I don't know if is backed up there or how to find it.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

I am using Firefox Desktop with windows10. I had a problem with windows and the fix deleted everything except my data files. I have reinstalled Firefox. However, the reinstall has none of my bookmarks. Is there a way to recover the Bookmarks from my previous version ? They took years to develop. Any help will be appreciated.

Noticing that on Windows 11 with Firefox 103, bookmarking a page no longer asks you where you want to put it ; it just throws it in the last folder into which you bookmarked something else. This is Windows 11 with all the latest updates as of 7-31-22. Now I tried Firefox 103 on Windows 7 sp1 and had no problems whatsoever assigning a specific folder for bookmarks, so this leads me to believe that something in Firefox 103 is not jiving correctly with the latest updates in Windows 11, or just Windows 11 itself in general. Thanks, and hope you can reproduce the issue and maybe even fix it ! Max

Last week, I exported my bookmarks to an HTML file (as I do every month). Today, I had to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I was able to restore my profile, but I can't get FFX to restore my bookmarks from last week's backup. I bring up the bookmark manger, click on "Restore from HTML", and point to the backup file. I click "Open", but nothing happens. I've done this in the past with no problems, but I can't seem to do it this time. What's wrong, and what do I have to do to fix it?

Just posting this to confirm that the solution provided by cor-el in an archived thread (four years ago) works, if you want to change your bookmark folder icons.

[[ https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1210566| https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1210566]]

After clicking the top right menu icon from the browser, going to Help > More Troubleshooting Information, and then opening the Profile Folder location, I added a `chrome` folder to the root of the directory, and created an empty `userChrome.css` file within it.

I then added the following to `userChrome.css`. On startup it successfully changed the folder icons (I just didn't want any icon for each folder, so I set it to none):

``` @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

  1. personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item[container],
  2. bookmarksMenuPopup .bookmark-item[container] {
list-style-image:none !important;
-moz-image-region:auto!important;

} ```

I have tried as suggested to delete bookmarks and then reinstall but I still get the same problem for some sites. I have actually tried installing them on MS Edge and they work but when I add them to Firefox it fails. I have used Firefox for about twenty years but this seems to be an ongoing problem. I even looked at doing this manually but that looked daunting. Included is a screen shot showing two that have not worked and have been tried several times.
