I have a row of icons visible that are in my bookmarks toolbar. And this row "used" to have a drop-down arrow for the bookmarks toolbar and another for all my other bookmarks. As of this morning, the arrow for the bookmarks has disappeared.

How do I get it back?

I believe Firefox 32 now uses the extension .jsonlz4 for its bookmark backups, as does SeaMonkey 2.29. I also believe that Firefox 32 has the same problem restoring bookmarks as SeaMonkey 2.29, in that it will not restore either .json or .jsonlz4 bookmark backups any more. Why are backups made to a location outside the profile still .json? Why will they no longer restore? What is the point of making backups if they cannot be restored? Why do that to Firefox? (I know that you can import .html bookmarks still.)

Hi everyone,

Recently I was cleaning some malware/viruses/spyware/worms and all other nasty files located on hard drive of computer. Actually I still have them but this is NOT the purpose of my message. The problem is that I lost everything in Firefox. All my bookmarks that I cannot live without are gone. ALL. Each and every bookmark is gone. Saved passwords are gone. Addons are gone. Online banking certificate is gone. Also when I click CTRL T to add new tab in same window I get extremely annoying squares (3 lines and each line with 5 squares) which are graphically showing websites I have visited. Please if someone could help me to get everything back, particularly bookmarks are extremely important.

I tried to do three possible tasks but neither of them worked.

TASK ONE:

Usage of about:<wbr>profiles command in address bar but it is reporting error message saying The address isn't valid.

TASK TWO (consisting of multiple steps):

step 1: finding old firefox profiles I could manage to find. I hope they are NOT all otherwise I am in huge trouble. Hopefully something was overlooked and you will see why in upcoming steps.

step 2: clicking Open menu icon on the left hand side of firefox consisting of three horizontal lines and click Open Help Menu icon and then click Troubleshooting Information

step 3: clicking about:profiles in section Application Basics. Here I then added every single profile I am aware of via button Create A New Profile

step 4: for each of profile I got listed, I clicked on Launch profile in new browser and my bookmarks, together with other settings (online banking certificate, saved passwords, addons,...) were NOT ( !!! ) there. In neither of profile. I pray that I overlooked some saved profile...

TASK THREE:

Bookmarks menu\Show All Bookmarks\Import And Backup\Restore. However, In this submenu Restore there is nothing to be restored.

Someone please help me as I really need to get, particularly but not only bookmarks, back.

Waiting extremely anxiously for your reply...

Thank you in advance a billion times!

Hello Mozilla Support. A list of porn video, chat, webcam and sex-hook-up bookmarks have been found in "Other Folders" on my PC which I have never put there. This has caused a great deal of distress and although difficult, I desperately would like help to confirm/prove that these were placed there by some type malicious source like Adware or Malware and not by me. This has happened on a Windows XP OS using Mozilla Firefox. The PC was erased and reformatted in approx 2012-13, and these links were found in this folder around 12 months ago in 2016. (Please see attachment) I never use or even look in that folder, so I had no idea that they were there, or from when. All of the link URLs are a mile long, which is unlike all the other bookmarks that I have saved everywhere else on this PC. Most/all of which simply end after the ".com", or ".com/forum" etc and that includes those that I am automatically logged in to. Has this been seen before? Is anyone aware of this? Is anyone aware of the possible cause? As much information as possible is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and help. Steve.

I cannot delete the Unsorted Bookmarks folder (delete is grayed out, as is Cut) and it has literally thousands of entries. I rarely if ever use the star so they must be being added automatically. Most of the entries are "Real Player Home Page." I think this huge number of (useless to me) bookmarks is affecting the Sync function as it keeps telling me it has encountered an error.

Until recently I was using Xmarks but that, too, has stopped functioning.

I am at a loss as to what to do to get rid of all those bookmarks under the UB folder.

When bookmarking a page, the "Choose" process shows only 7 lines of folders, requiring me to scroll through my dozens of them (even more scrolling required if some folders were left expanded). This is because the bookmarking window (the dropdown) is only a small bit of my screen/window height. I used to have an add-on that enlarged this dropdown to show a much longer view of my list. THAT SHOULD BE STANDARD IN FIREFOX!!! But apparently that add-on is not compatible with Firefox Quantum, and I can't find a replacement. Please advise!

Do the developers lead such simple lives that they have only 7 bookmark folders? PLEASE ADD THIS CAPABILITY TO THE BROWSER. I have a 27" monitor, and you ask me to work through a mailslot. CURRENTLY BOOKMARKING A PAGE IS MADDENING!

Meanwhile, can someone please direct me to a compatible add-on for this capability?

PS: I tried to include a screenshot of the dropdown, but your upload process never finished (wheel just keeps turning and page says "Uploading ...". Let me know if any question what I am talking about.

Running windows 7 64 bit. FF Version 26.

I always backup my bookmarks on a separate flash drive. I thought the drive might be corrupted so I tried a different (HDD) drive. Same 0 json result. I started shortly after version 26 upgrade. I would downgrade to FF 25 or 24 but I cannot get a copy of the bookmarks to restore in the FF downgrade. All the stored bookmarks are 0 json. Never had this problem before.

I am unable to get Firefox (43.0.4) to export my bookmark or json file. The files are NOT created.

I've tried refreshing my profile, but that didn't help. While I realize that there is a places maintenance extension, I'd like to know what is causing this issue and to find a permanent solution as I backup my data files quite regularly. I can see the places.sqlite file, so I know it's there.

I've not seen this issue before and would appreciate any advice or suggestions on why this happened (corruption?) and how to fix it !

Many thanks.

I have Firefox 44.0.2 but this problem has been going on even on previous versions. If I click on the star it goes through the motions of placing a bookmark. I even see this animation of a star moving to the list of bookmarks. But when I go into the bookmarks they are not listed. I have tried right clicking on the page and clicking the star and I have tried it form the tool bar. Neither works. I have also renamed the places.sqlite to places.sqlite.old and that doesn't seem to do a thing.

Hello,

  Today I was automatically upgraded to FireFox Quantum.  Mostly it went well but my bookmarks have been mostly destroyed and/or disorganized.  I've tried restoring from two different dates prior to the upgrade but the restored bookmarks are a mess.  I'm a software developer and have spent a lot of time safeguarding and organizing these bookmarks.  I'm hoping this is a bug in Quantum and that your team can get this straightened out.  :)

Hello,

I'm a little angry right now because I have lost bookmarks of all my life and I need your help to repair it please? I don't know why but somehow, Firefox which I use for years ; (Thx by the way) ; corrupted my data on the run...? I started Firefox again but, no extension, no bookmarks, etc.. I Have kept a backup of all this FF profile, just in case.

My 1st step was to try to get a new profile a import my previous data from Firefox Sync - but somehow , I'm angry at myself again for not understanding how FF Sync work, no data from FFSync updated my data - It stayed like this for a long time , like a new profile without data (I used Xmarks before so I thought it was replacing it).

2nd step: I tried to load all bookmarks-xxx.jsonlz4 located in the bookmarkbackups folder from the FF bookmarks tools (Import / export ; etc). FF seems to see all the bookmarks but can't load them. What is really important here is that FF backed up files for like a month and even my oldest file is unusable  : bookmarks-2019-01-19-xxx.jsonlz4 !!

3rd step: I tried to get my data back from FF files, in bookmarks files like bookmarks-2019-01-19-xxx.jsonlz4 from the bookmarkbackups folder. Someone pointed me to use the https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html website but all the jsonlz4 files in the bookmarkbackups folder seems corrupted (or the format of files changed and his tool may need to be updated ?)

Example : File name: bookmarks-2019-01-19_2392_mKZssqkWMZt+Mqt-HOi68A==.jsonlz4; Size: 283114; last modified 18/01/2019 à 12:38:42 (failed JSON parsing: SyntaxError: Unexpected token in JSON at position 21928) Note: To try a different file, reload this page Can't seem to acces the step 2 part even after waiting longer

4th step: tried to get old Backup of my FF Profiles with Windows 10 Shadow Copy System, "Shadow Explorer" or "System Restore Explorer" Found 3 backup wich I restored also, all bookmarks seems to get the same problem. I think I'll need to look in to this because It's not official Windows tools, but I'm really disapointed here.. I think I'll put them on md5sum tools to compare them for a start.

5th step : tried to repair my <places.sqlite> a (80MB files) which I found renamed to sqlite.corrupt. With the help of http://www.froebe.net/blog/2015/05/27/error-sqlite-database-is-malformed-solved/ , all I can get is a empty database at the end, but Im not a sqlite expert so if anyone has an idea :-)

So please, any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. (and sorry for my english)
