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)

Greetings,

I have been unable to restore my previous bookmarks due to the recent Firefox update.

I have tried to ctrl+shift+B and try to import my bookmark in the backup file in my profile folder but whenever I try to import my bookmark from the backup folder it says "unable to process backup files".

Ive also tried to import them from html link using the link I got here ; https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html , it doesnt work, tells me the download "failed"..

I also tried to change the file extension from .jsonlz4 to .json ,still not working...(unable to process file).

Please help me get my bookmarks back, this is so frustrating.. Also needless to say im totally clueless in terms of computers (I am 62 years old),It took me 2 hours to understand and try to follow the instructions in similar post, Im not even joking... could you please use simple language and instructions in order to help ?

Thank you.

I am losing all of my new bookmarks with no crash. I usually save all of mine to folders on the Bookmarks Toolbar. I lost individual links and sub-folders containing links under multiple folders on this toolbar. Unfortunately my last manual backup is about a week ago. All of those bookmarks from the backup are still there.

I wish Mozilla would at least create an "automatic" bookmark backup feature if this is going to happen.

I refreshed Firefox because it kept crashing and loading slowly. My bookmarks didn't come back, and none of the backups will restore. I get the message "Unable to process the backup file." All the backups have zero bytes, but they show the number of items. There's also a message when I reopen Firefox that says "The bookmarks and history system will not be funtional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." but nothing else is running. I restarted my computer and it still says that. I tried deleting the favicons.sqlite and places.sqlite files and it made that message go away, but I still got the "Unable to process the backup file" message when I tried to restore my bookmarks.

I randomly lose bookmarks. I save them to a subfolder and check that they are in fact there. a few days later, gone. Yes, I tried restoring and checked history.

The backup is a week old. The history is incomplete. BUT it was there yesterday. It's happened before, and doesn't seem related to updates. Any thoughts?

My history is not showing, my auto entry is not showing, and my bookmarks are all not loading. I have tried importing and exporting as well. Export is blank(nothing is happening), When I try to import from the Auto-Backups (I did not make manual saves), it says Unable To Recover File.

I have looked in the browser for profiles, and it shows only the one currently in use, no old profiles show.

Any help would be appreciated!

My firefox was running slow so I shut it down from task manager. When I opened it back up i got a pop up saying something about a refresh I wasn't thinking and click yes and it wiped everything off my browser. I tried looking in the options and saw no way to retrieve my data from my account which I thought was suppose to be backed up to my account. Why else would I be syncing to an account. So after that failed. I tried system restore to earlier that day. When I opened firefox everything was still gone. I then went back 4 days way before the refresh. Still firefox bookmarks and everything else was gone. I saw in a youtube video where you can find a back up on you computer and replaced the profile it gave me a error about profile can't be loaded. So I reinstalled firefox and still got the same error. I've tried reinstalling it like 10 times now.
