I installed addons (e.g. adblock lite, ad killer) and when I shutdown Windows and start it again, the addons disappeared in Firefox. I'm using Firefox 40.0.3 non of addons will stay. I restored Firefox to its original state, installed everything again, also did the Malware scan as suggested on a post and the problem stays. So every time I start Firefox, have to install the add ons which is a bit hectic.


Please help me with some solution.

I bookmark something and it goes to the recent bookmark list but when I click show all bookmarks I get three no title folders. There is nothing in the folder. Where are my bookmarks saving to? How do i get them back so I see them all?

Also i want to add. I backed up my entire pc and reset back to factory in December 2017 I think. And i didn't back up firefox right so I lost almost everything. I had an old back up from 2014 which I used to recover some bookmarks but all after was lost.

Actually my entire computer is weird now I'm locked out of changing all the back up data from the reset but I have accepted it now.

Please help. Thank you.

FF 41.0.2/Windows 7 on laptop. Use Saved Password Editor 2.9.4

I may be okay, but I ask that you tell me if I am and walk me through the steps like I am a slow child (please).

I restored computer with Image, so all my passwords reverted to my old ones. I have backups on hard drive and thumb with login.jsons and key3.db from last week (those would be newly configured). What I think I can do and what I can do are a little unclear. I would, though, like to merge the two lists.

 Not a new profile, but to use the passwords I spent a week changing and keep the hundreds of others I haven't gotten around to changing yet (and will not have to, now).

I think those files are write only - why can't I read them? I think I can move them from old profile to new - or vice versa - but as you can read from my info, I am unclear what to do.

Can the files be opened so I can just copy?

(As suggested, I backed up passwords using FEBE - thanks!)

Thank you.

Please can you help me to sort this out as I am using bookmarks for professional usage?

In addition, please let me know if I can get a readable vision of all bookmarks saved in my backup file?

Thanks a lot

Hard drive crashed due to multiple power outages & a brownout, and just had a new one (solid state) installed.

They got Firefox installed, and my bookmarks in place (it appears), but none of my saved passwords are there.

They did a copy of all my old hard drive's data to the new drive (and a backup on a small solid state drive), but I haven't been able to find a way to get Firefox to locate & use them. It is saving new ones I create, but the old ones (probably a hundred or more) aren't there.

I'm not very computer savvy, so if anyone has a simple, step-by-step method of doing this, I'd REALLY appreciate it!

I'm on Win10 (upgraded from Win7 Home Premium a couple of months ago), and the latest version of Firefox.

I did a system restore and lost my bookmarks, and trying to restore them didn't work because only the current day's date was listed. How do I get them back?

I am not sure if there is a solution since there is only 1 date listed to choose from to restore the favorites/bookmarks. Please help if you can, thank you!

Hi guys, I'm a desktop Firefox user for many years now and am currently using version 39 on Windows 8.

I realized on some rare occasion (10% of less of the time), the "Restore previous session" button only partially restore the Tabs and Windows from my previous session.

For example, normally I have at least 4 windows of Firefox opened (each window having 10 Tabs say for example). To rephrase it, it's basically 40 Tabs spread on 4 separate Firefox windows. Now usually when I end my session and restore it the next time, 90% of the time all 4 windows (and 40 Tabs) will comes back.

But on rare occasions, one of the window will not every come back. Meaning only 3 windows comes back. The other window with all it's Tabs will be gone.

I find it quite strange. It had happened to me before on slightly older version of Firefox and windows 7.

Even though it happened not very often but it's kind of a problem because one of the window might contain really useful Tabs.

I would appreciate if anyone with any ideas or suggestions would kindly come forward and share it with me. Thank you so much !

After following a support document on editing system registry (the document suggested a full registry export in opposition to the chosen registry key export which does no good when in my situation using Windows 'reg import' can not be done using the full registry backup) to restore functionality of my Seagate USB Backup Plus Windows10 will not boot and I fear that I am going to have to start from scratch and so I wanted to ask this question in preparation for the worst possible scenario.

I am chronically reliant upon being able to close Mozilla having faith that it will always restore my last session(s) of all open tabs and their locations successfully EVERY TIME ... now that I may have to start from scratch with my OS, I am desperate to recover my Mozilla profile and I am in great hopes, that recovering the profile will likewise have my last session data to be restored once I get Windows10 running again, because I will really be in a pickle if I lose my open tabs!

So my questions are:

1: Is it possible to recover the profile including the very important "Restore Last Session" where all open tabs of the last session exists?

2: I will be retrieving the files VIA Command Line. I would like to be certain that I am retrieving the correct file(s) from the correct file location(s). Can someone provide the Mozilla profile folder locations and names.


Thanking you in advance for your time and knowledge

Best Regards

After upgrading to FF 40.0.3 on my mac and experiencing a crash, I have lost all my stored passwords. The signon.sqlite file appears to contain all my stored passwords. I tried the re-setting signonimported from sqlite to default, shutting FF, deleting login.jsign and then restarting FF (as recommended on the support site). This process recreated the login.jsign file, which appeared to have all the information, but FF still shows no stored passwords in preferences. I have no extensions that control passwords. Any advice?

I bravely updated as prompted, and now my encrypted passwords are useless since the file I believe (?) is needed to decrypt them "key3.db" is not doing its job. I do not have a backup of the key3.db that did work last week. Is there any way to decrypt the passwords or restore them in Firefox?

I have one old key3.db from June of 2014. I used that to replace the new one in my profile folder, but it didn't work.

Making the saved passwords function suddenly useless after an update would seem like a fairly big mistake. I am a veteran user and this has seriously violated my trust.

Following the preexisting advice, I refreshed Firefox, which created a new profile but did not return my data, and I have attempted to restore my bookmarks, which results in a message saying "Unable to process the backup file." I have been running the Places Maintenance add-on for some time now and it has yet to move on from the "checking integrity..." stage.

This is the second time Firefox has deleted my history, but the first it has taken my bookmarks. I am extremely frustrated and upset.

I am running Firefox 46.0.1 on a MacBook Pro with OS X El Capitan (10.11.3)
