My situation is: I got a new/used PC with fresh install Win11 and SSD's. On old PC, win7, I used Firefox and saved my bookmarks as "restore" I guess (not HTML) to my D drive. Firefox was installed on old C HDD drive.

I have added old HDD to new PC case and want to copy/move/import my Firefox bookmarks to use in new Edge browser. I found my old saved bookmarks (on D drive HDD) as a JSON file. Edge can import only HTML bookmark files. What do I do?

I've spent 5-6 hours searching web but cannot find any solution.

upgraded to v118 9'30 Bookmarks lost and not able to access old profile, or restore using "Manage Bookmarks"

See attached: Only see one real profile (current, new) in App Support > Firefox > Profiles. The second profile that exists has virtually nothing in it compared to the new one created upon upgrade. Only three tiny files key4,cert9,pkcs11. Nothing else to restore from.

Bookmark manager >> restore >> despite seeing 10 dates to chose form , error messages every time, "unable to process the backup file." Now what?

I do see a "places.sqlite" file which seems to show "last modified" date of prior to my unfortunate update. But when I try to have Firefox open it, nothing happens. Just new browser windows every time.

THX in advance.

Hello there; I had installed the "savefrom.net" extension. This extension automatically generated the website address to the "bookmarks toolbar". I deleted the extension and deleted the shortcut as well. But when the bookmarked website shortcut "firefox" is closed and reopened, it adds itself to the bookmarks toolbar again. No matter what I did, it didn't work. I don't want to delete Firefox completely and reinstall it. Because there are too many shortcuts and data that I use all the time. How do you think I can solve this problem?

My computer 'guru' reinstalled Win10 in order to correct a serious problem. ALL of my programs were gone and I was left with a raw Win10. 6/12/2023 was last date prior to the disaster. I reinstalled Firefox. Using the "firefox.exe -p" I can only find the default profile. I DO HAVE a full backup done using the Win7 Backup and Restore feature. How do I resurrect my most recent profile? I will need to find the files(s) manually from the b/u. When I did a Full Restore the bookmarks didn't appear. Where and what files am I looking for? The attached screen shots from the b/u may be of help. [removed email from public forum]

From 8 years of using Firefox and updates, there is a perpetual, never-ending serious bug, occurs on all computers! If one has a lot of open tabs with a lot of RAM, the tabs are also automatically frozen then it is impossible to add bookmarks to all 4760 tabs. So never ever make a bookmark! It takes forever to work, nothing happens, even no extension can, nothing will help. This is some kind of stuck bug. Chrome, it ALWAYS, ALWAYS WORKS WITHOUT PROBLEM! I can add in 1 second in Chrome, but never, ever in Firefox for 8 years!

Is it possible to combine history/bookmark files? Firefox has truncated my "History" to 15 days and the only option I see to get elder entries is to combine a backupped history file with the current one. An easy-to-use tool for this task would be welcome. I did not change my config options after the update to 121.0.1 (64-Bit) (Windows 10pro) but I think I had the total history (from years) before the update. My current Options related to this topic are: browser.history_expire_days false places.history.expiration.max_pages false places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages 501234 privacy.clearOnShutdown.history false privacy.history.custom true history (*) Boolean Number String

I already sreened Help files of this Forum concerning lost history data but they all do not give sufficient answers or I do not understand them (as a German user). Thanks. Martin

So I just rebuilt my PC with all new Parts. Basically the only parts I kept were the PSU, and the Case. I installed Windows fresh on a brand new m.2 SSD, everything up and running and installed Firefox.

I have the OLD m.2 SSD set up as a flash drive, that I can plug into a USB port on my new motherboard, which has allowed me to transfer over things like My Docs and My Pics, etc.

Now I need to know what files I need to copy, from where, and to where; to restore my Firefox profile with all my bookmarks, etc.

Can anyone help me with this?

I added an Add-On to try it called [by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox] Notes by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox which I have since removed as the Add-On has corrupted my Bookmarks. When I click 'Show Sidebars' my Bookmarks don't show (thought they are there) but it's as though the font is white making it impossible to see them.

If I click Bookmarks I can see them and/or when I click on Manage Bookmarks that option opens and I can see all my Bookmarks. This only happened after I added "Notes by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox" Add-On. I was thinking there could be possibility it could have been caused by changing the appearance to Dark Mode, (for example Facebook or Twitter, etc).

There must be a better fix then to refresh / restore Firefox to its default settings as I have about 90 Tabs Open

Hello,

I have a problem retrieving my favorites/bookmarks. I changed computers (all of them, even the hard drives).

I would like to recover my favorites/bookmarks but cannot do so because I am asked to look for them in folders that I no longer have, because they are on the old computer.

Does Firefox not save any information about my favorites/bookmarks? Have I lost them all? Do I have to redo my whole life?

Hello :) I know the subject might sound a bit vague so I will try to be more specific in the following.

Unfortunately, I have recently lost the full content of my Firefox profile that is usually recorded in the Application Support folder on a Mac

I had a lot of pages and tabs opened at that time and I would really like to recover all of these data if possible.

Since I cannot access to my sessionstore/recovery/bookmarks/prefs files (etc.) anymore, I would like to know if Firefox would be able to recover theses files in its database provided I had a connected Firefox account to it when it happened? If so, could you please explain me where I could find these data on my account?

Besides, could you think of another way to get to the same result knowing that I don't have a recent clone/time machine backup unfortunately?

Many thanks for your potential help!

A message on my screen said that it might be because Firefox was blocking cookies. I checked and it isn't. When I type the address manually into the address bar it connects without a problem. I deleted the old bookmark and set up a new one after I connected. When I navigate away from the page, I still can't connect with the new bookmark.

My workflow in Firefox involves 100's of open tabs pertaining to work, personal etc. I regularly bookmark all the abs using the 'bookmark all tabs' feature in the Bookmarks drowdown (or the equivalent 'select all tabs' -> 'bookmark all tabs' by rightclicking on a tab) which offers the option of saving the tabs in a new folder name I specify. As of the last couple of weeks, the option to enter a folder name no longer exists. I've attached a screenshot of the current pop-up when I choose 'bookmark all tabs'.

Perhaps related: this may have started occuring after I upgraded to the latest version (v. 101.0 on MacOs 12.4 on Macbook Pro) or the timing may be a coincidence.

Saving the 100s of bookmarks every week is an essential part of workflow; I've been doiong it for years, and I really need to have this ability back. Please help me debug this.

Thanks!

Please don't go technical on me. I read exactly how to bookmark a website. I understand how to create folders. What I'm lost about is how do I create a folder in my toolbar, and not see the website in the menu? I have tried to put a saved site in a toolbar folder, then delete it from the drop-down menu, but once it is deleted the toolbar folder is empty. The folder I created still exist though.

Then I tried to create a folder and put it in the Toolbar. In the drop down menu I left specific websites.

When I closed the browser everything was gone from the folders and the drop down menu.

All I need it to create folders in the Toolbar area. Leave "non-duplicated" sites in the drop down menu. I just don't need to loose everything again, I spent hours doing this, I'm thankful I was able to do a recovery, except it was the last date I used days ago.

Again, this is what I need, not how yours is.

Thanks
