I am not able to add or remove bookmarks. The bookmarks library is empty. I can't restore to any back up bookmarks. I restarted in safe mode. No bookmarks. I reset Firefox. No bookmarks. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. No bookmarks. I did a Revo Uninstall and cleared the registry. No bookmarks. I deleted the localstore.rdf. No bookmarks. This is kinda a deal breaker for me. I might have to go to Chrome or IE.

I'm about to change Linux distribution and have around 20 thousand links (according to Library and Search). Most of those links are in category folders and sub folders and stuff gets routinely deleted when not needed, entire categories are often deleted when done with.

If I backup the current bookmarks, the HTML file comes to 7.7 MiB and JSON file 7.3 MiB. How can I be sure those backup files actually contain my current 20k worth of links??

It just seems a small file size for such a large amount of links. I'm sure I've seen larger backup file sizes than that in the past but it could be that things have changed under the hood and things have got more compressed.

I can't really afford to discover that I've lost a load of links and folders when I come to set Firefox back up in a new distro (using import). It's bad enough Firefox ignores any current layout integrity when bookmarks get imported over into a new set up and I end up having to re-order everything over the following days. But I'm grateful that previous large (but smaller than this) backup bookmark files do usually end up whole.

Thanks.

Greetings kind people.

lately i wanted to edit that file to add/delete entries and other maintanence.

I looked at a few details about the databases inside the file but still couldn't understand what each database is and what it contains.

I would just like details about the databases and which of them i need to edit to remove or add history or bookmarks entries.

Where are my saved websites saved? Also, am I able to "share" the file over my LAN? I have a desktop PC and a laptop connected to my network. What I would like to do is make it so whether I save (or bookmark?) a site on the laptop or desktop it is available on both. Does this make sense? If I need to do a better job explaining just let me know. Currently, I am successfully sharing the IE 'Favorites' folder so the links are always in sync and the same links are available on both of my machines.

Hi, please could I have some help with the following?

I had firefox installed on the same partition as the windows I booted from. Due to an error this partition would no longer boot and I had to install windows and firefox clean on a seperate drive.

I've managed to get the partition working again and can access all the files on it again. Unfortunately when i load up the firefox on the previously failed partition it appears to load up the same version as I installed most recently. None of my old book marks are in the menu which is what I am trying to access. I've looked on here for help and the following don't seem to apply to me...

- There's no profiles folder in the old partition so I can't find Places.sqlite. - Troubleshooting>Show Folder points to the application data on the new install drive - There doesn't appear to be backup.json files on the old partition

So my question is is there anywhere on the old partition you can think where my old bookmarks may be stored?

Any suggestions would be appreciated Many thanks JD

In the previous versions of Firefox, when you click on the star near the url, you can add this website on your favorites. Another click and you can edit some fields about this bookmark, like the url, the folder, etc...

But with FF17, the Description field is no longer there. You can only find it when managing your bookmarks, that is not really user friendly.

Is there a way to add again the description field when clicking on the gold star? It's very useful for adding notes about this website, and it's also synch with addins like Xmarks

I accidentally replaced my backup with the current bookmarks while trying to import from it. The original bookmarks were not present in Bookmark Backup in Profiles so I used Recuva for recovery. Now, Firefox gives the 'Unable to process backup file' thingy.

System Restore hasn't helped either.

I had about 100 folders w/bookmarks last week and by mistake I imported about 500 other folders dated over several months ago. I discovered I don't need those 500 folders. How do I get ride of all of them without doing it individually? I want to avoid trying to delete them individually folder by folder because it would just be too time consuming. Is there a way to highlight them all (500) and the delete all at once? thank you I await your answer.

Perhaps I can put first 100 folders altogether in another single folder, say X. And then export X as a back up. Then somehow remove all 600 folders plus X all at once some how completely emptying the bookmark listings and import back the backed up folder X. Can that be done?
