In the past when I reinstalled Windows and then Firefox, I would sign into my account and all my bookmarks/addons etc. would automatically get reinstalled. Today I had to reinstall Windows and when I logged into my firefox account, nothing happened. Does Mozilla no longer keep these settings for us? I don't have any other devices to sync off of and never have, so where did all those settings come from when I did previous reinstalls?

K, so I've read numerous posts on trying to recover my bookmarks. Notta, zilch. Getting the usual messages when trying to import from the backups, etc. 15 backups and none are working. Anyone know how to trace what application Firefox refers to at launch regarding, "another application is using the file" message?

Thanks for reading.

I recently installed Firefox version 120.0.1 on Linux Lite 6.6 and logged in to my Mozilla and Firefox accounts, then synced my data. In the past, when I used Ubuntu Desktop 22.04, this method would display all the bookmarks I had saved on other devices that also use Firefox. However, for this case, syncing did not successfully display bookmarks in the Firefox toolbar.

I then tried exporting bookmarks to an HTML file, then importing them into the newly installed Firefox using the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open, so I couldn't import bookmarks.html into the new Firefox installed on Linux Lite 6.6. I also tried restoring from the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open either.

Is there another way to transfer these bookmarks to the newly installed Firefox on Linux Lite?

I just built a new computer with all new parts and Windows 11. The old one is disassembled. I realized afterwards that I had forgotten to save the bookmarks and passwords into the formats that make importing easy. So I have the original hard drive where Firefox was located on (with Windows 10). Is there a way to copy/paste/import any folders and/or files from the original hard drive to the one on the new computer to transfer the bookmarks and/or passwords?

From: Dell XPS 13 (5 years old) on Windows 11. Up to date with The most recent version of Firefox which I believe is 120. Always stay up to date.

To: Dell XPS 13 (brand new as of this week), Windows 11 with all updates and Firefox most recent 120 again always up to date.

I have tried reading several articles on here and using different methods from multiple answers and threads and have failed to find a method which exports All of my bookmarks from my old computer to my new computer.

NOTE:

Would highly prefer a method that replaces all bookmarks and data on my new computer exactly with everything from my old computer!

I don't care about my bookmarks on my new computer because I don't really have any but I do care very much about my old ones. At one point when I was syncing them, The bookmarks on my new computer which didn't include The vast majority of them disappeared from both computers for a short time until I restored to a specific different date a few times and luckily have my bookmarks on my old laptop still.


I have tried exporting them as a JSON and as an HTML to put them on my new computer. I've read the HTML method puts them all in one place as opposed to replacing all of them. Obviously I would prefer the JSON method. However I have tried both with no success. I've also tried moving them into the documents folder both times as recommended. I've tried to restore to date on the new computer.

Transferring bookmarks individually would be way too time-consuming as I have a ton of different folders.

Someone please help me find a solution to do something which should be basic which is transfer all my bookmarks for my old computer to my new computer. I'm also logged into my Firefox same account on both computers and have tried syncing with no success as well. No matter how many times I do it. I repeated all of these processes many times with small variations.

Please someone help me get my bookmarks! Thank you for your time and help!

Best regards,

Nate

I have lost all my Bookmarks - they have the same name, but the icon & address is wrong.

  • This is on-going = I cannot Bookmark without it occuring.
  • I have attempted to restore to a previous point, but the issue did not resolve.
  • This occurs over all my synced devices. (I have now stopped Firefox syncing.)
  • The incorrect icon & address is from a 'trusted' site (ie. national govt, email provider etc) that I have previously visited, but never Bookmarked.

Please help as I use Bookmarks professionally & have built an excellent database over many years.

- thank you -

I think I have looked through all of the troubleshooting suggestions for loading / importing old Firefox Bookmarks following a new Windows install.

- I did not have Mozilla Sync turned on. - My new install of Mozilla doesn't have restore points from my old install / program files. - My old SSD is accessible, however, User folder directories don't have the 'AppData/' folder directory. - Of course, I didn't think about / have a chance to create a manual restore point prior to my computer's crash.

Copying over my old Mozilla parent directories from my old SSD directory to my new SSD directory, hasn't restored prior Mozilla settings / bookmarks.

Does Mozilla store bookmarks anywhere else ?

When I select "bookmark this tab", in the Firefox browser, I used to get the window allowing you to choose where to put the new bookmark. This 'bookmark location' window no longer appears so you don't know where the bookmark has gone. Prior to now, this feature has always worked fine.

I quit Firebox and reopened it but the problem remains.

I'm using Firefox 119.0.1 (64 bit) (the most current vers.) on a Macbook Pro running Ventura 13.3. I switched from Chrome to Firefox on this new Mac.

Please help!

Thanks very much.

My bookmarks disappear when I click on them or they don't open at all. - please see attached images - I've already cleared the cache and restored the bookmarks three times but everything remains the same. I copy the exactly same link to Chrome and everything is working, therefore, it has nothing to do with the possibility of the addresses being corrupted. Can someone help me on this one?

I started Firefox and left the room. When I returned it asked me if I wanted to "Refresh" Firefox. I said yes. Now I have lost my bookmarks, history, etc. I have a profile from a backup. But learned I can't just move it into "Profiles" directory.' I've tried removing/reinstalling Firefox, etc. etc. As it is now, I have a Firefox that tries to start, but says "your profile can't be loaded." How do I reinstall my backups and history, etc.? I have RTFM, but it just dug me in deeper.

All help's appreciated. (Will be away until tomorrow morning) -Dennis

I had to re-install Windows 11 after the last major Windows update. I cannot find a copy of my bookmarksmenu or bookmark bar (I am translating from Dutch) in Windows.old. I did have Firefox synchronized with my Android phone, so all of those bookmarks are still in Firefox Android (on my phone). I would like to get them all back, but the phone clearly says that the synchronisation feature is NOT for backing up or restoring this kind of stuff. On the phone the Settings and clicking on my email address says, that the last synchronisation took place 1 minute ago, but indeed, the bookmarks are not back on my computer's Firefox. I hate to initiate a synchronisation from my computer (don't even know how) and then have the synchronisation overwrite the favorites and bookmarks on my phone. None of the help files or articles give any indiction whether you can dictate the direction of the synchronisation or whether that is even a thing. So basically, I seem to have no backup of my favorites or bookmark, other than what's in Firefox for Android. How can I restore them from there. I read I can import them in the desktop version, but I don't find any info on how to export them from Android. Help!

Had to reinstall my pc over consistent error messages (thank you windows 10 for being the same pos system), and now all my bookmarks are gone, the bookmark backup folder is also empty, I have two years worth of personal and business related sites saved that will cripple me financially and mentally if I can't get them back.

Reaching out to Sync to try that, but looking for any kind of alternative fix here to recover the bookmarks.
