I use firefox on Mac OS 10.14.6. Every time I quit firefox (Stopping the program, not simply closing all windows) everything is reset to defaults. For all intents and purposes, it's as though I deleted and re-installed firefox every time I quit out of it. Bookmarks are removed, and any default bookmarks I removed are re-instated. It also opens up the set-up and privacy web pages that it does for the first time when you open it. None of the preference files are locked, it's set to remember history and I'm not permanently in private browsing, it's not even supposed to delete cookies. It's been like this since the moment I installed it; refreshing firefox changes nothing, uninstalling and reinstalling it also changes nothing. The only thing that stays the same is that my computer keeps firefox as my default browser.

I have exactly the same problem found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1261967 BUT, I'm using firefox 67.0.2 on linux (opensuse leap 15.0) and I have no antivirus running. Also the workaround does not fix the problem. I tried to rename the logins.json corrupted into logins.json (I think the file is still ok, since I looked inside with a text editor (Kate) and I found all my saved "hostname"). No way to reload my saved logins into firefox. Every time I restart firefox with the correct logins.json (the old one renamed) it does not connect to sync and it told me to re-connect to sync. Then, it rename the logins.json and create another file with no saved logins. Please help Thanks

I am running Win 10 with Firefox v58.0.1

Every day, at least once per day, I loose about half of my bookmarks. Most often it happens overnight, when I come back to my desktop in the morning. I rarely shutdown at night, just leave everything up and running. When this happens, I have to go to "import and backup"/restore/then pick a restore date and reinstall the bookmarks. I always get a message afterwards saying "Unable to process the backup file", but the bookmarks are restored.

Today, I must have lost my bookmarks at least four times. What can I do to stop this from happening? It is a time waster and annoying.

After restarting my computer, I got a new FF web page and ALL my bookmarks as well as history have been deleted.

How do I get them ALL back?

I have tried every solution on the Mozilla Help section - I cant do a Restore I have a very old version of backups - 2016

The online help system is going around and around in circles not giving any solutions. 4 hours of trying to sort this out is ridculous.

I really do not want to have to move to Chrome, I far prefer Mozilla, but I can not afford to loose more time sorting this problem out. If not resolved here, I will reluctantly have to restart all my bookmarks in Chrome.

I need all my bookmarks - some are work related.

Please Help

Hello,

I've been using my own Sync 1.5 server since January without having any issue until this week.

I am unable to sync my clients, getting the "Sync encountered an error while synching: Unknown error, Sync will try again automatically."

Here's the log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8836193

The problem seems to happen at line 101 (on pastebin).

Here's some more info about my setup.

Syncserver 1.5.2 installed on a local server running on Linux.

I have 1 Windows client, 2 Linux clients. None of them can sync. All uses Firefox 38.0.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Phil

I have had this problem for a few months now and eventually just stopped using Firefox. I had tried the various suggested fixes to no avail. - rebooted - tried running in safe mode with no antivirus programs - renamed the places.sqlite file - I deleted Firefox, downloaded and installed it again with no success. I am concerned that not everything was removed on the Windows 10 uninstall process. - Have checked my Antivirus (Bit defender) logs and don't see any Firefox files locked/etc by Bitdefender

I would appreciate any suggestions that you might have. Regards Bill

Tried to opened Firefox this morning. Immediately received message box that "Firefox was updating, please wait". When Firefox window opened I did not see my Homepage. Instead there was a window asking me to launch POCKET via Firefox, GOOGLE or email. I was surprised because I had no idea what "POCKET" was. I clicked email but the next screen gave me no more information about what POCKET was so I backed out and opened another window with my HOMEPAGE. When I next clicked BOOKMARKS I discovered my BOOKMARKS folders were all empty----- no bookmark links at all. I tried "Restore Firefox" - (nothing) and then "Restore Bookmarks" ( also nothing.) I am devastated...... Please Help

Opening FF today had error message about bookmarks and something (sorry cant remenber exact details) but had to shut down & restart which I did and now, whilst bookmarks are OK all my logins & passwords have gone. Opening the logins.json file shows nothing - it's empty. Checking the about:profiles shows the current one plus 2 others. One has logins but is from 2018 so most are wrong, (most of my currect logins have the firefox generated passwords) the other has none. Can I get them back?

My VISTA computer's motherboard died, and thus the computer, but the hard drive was saved. It's now an external drive to a Win 10 laptop. When I go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox the directory is dated 5/23, the day before the crash, so something got updated, but the most recent date on files in the directory is 5/10, including the file firefox..application..505kb. When I double-click it and go Bookmarks>All Bookmarks>Import and Backup>Restore there's no file dates in May except the one created yesterday when I was trying to find a way to get a missing bookmark directory and its contents recovered. Thus: How can I get my missing bookmarks back? Are they on the rescued C: (as some kind of "Favorites" file), or "in the cloud" somewhere? Is the firefox file I mention above the correct file to double-click? All help is immensely appreciated. Thanks, Dave

I guess after the recent Firefox update, my old bookmarks were wiped out. I went through the process to restore old bookmarks, but the options only included bookmarks dated since after the update, with no dated files from before the update. I think the instructions stated that there should be 15 backup files to choose from, but there was only the one mentioned above. Is there any other way to access pre-update bookmark backup files? Thank you -
