Firefox deleted a bunch of my stuff- customization, bookmarks, settings, add ons and most importantly history and cookies, annihilating my browser game save which I had for over a year.

It did so without my knowledge or permission, and I want to know why that happened, and why can't I recover the most important stuff- my history and save from the game.

I copy and pasted all the files inside "old firefox data" folder and it brought back my bookmarks and add ons, but it did not recover my settings and history.

Putting everything back to how it should be will take me ages, and I won't be able to find some important websites I usually would access by history.

So, can someone tell me, why firefox just did that without my permission or even knowledge? And if there is a way to bring my stuff back, because I'm really not in the mood of setting up the whole browser after I've already done so when I decided to switch to it.

Thank you for any help.

I am experimenting with changing from Microsoft Edge to Firefox. However, a couple of bookmarks that have favicons in Microsoft Edge do not appear to work in Firefox. Attached is a .gif showing me trying to add https://app.powerbi.com to the bookmark bar. You can see that there is an icon on the tab, along with an icon that appears when trying to drag to the bookmark bar. However, when it gets to the bookmark bar, it goes back to the default icon and does not show the actual favicon. The same thing happens when trying to add https://vscode.dev. However, both of those sites have favicon images in the bookmark bar on Microsoft Edge.

Any ideas on how to get the favicon to appear would be greatly appreciated. I understand that it may seem a pretty trivial thing, but I do a lot of screen recordings for my work, and want all of the icons on the bar to appear.

Some background first: To start with, I don't do clouds or file sharing, and almost no social media. I used to do bimonthly backups (to any of three external hard drives) until my wife died four years ago. Never thought about it again until very late December. Decided I'd do it on January 1. Hard drive crashed on December 29, on an older laptop running Windows 10. Paid an obscene amount of money for the (successful) data recovery effort, and have it all on an external hard drive. That older laptop had other (physical) problems as well, so I bought a new one running Windows 11 while the data recovery effort was going on. I've been using Firefox exclusively for 20 years, I imagine, and I've got hundreds of bookmarks. (I tend to do a lot of research.)

Current issue: When I installed Firefox on the new laptop, it wanted to import bookmarks, but of course, they weren't available. Got the recovery drive back. Researched... located the folders that Mozilla says contains the bookmarks. Stopped Firefox. ...AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles Renamed the folders therein. Copied the similarly named folders from the recovery drive to this location. (Names and/or extensions were similar, but not exact.) Fired up Firefox. Deep sigh. It didn't work. Stopped Firefox again. Renamed the file extensions. Fired up Firefox again. Back up and running again, your witness, I'm writing this.

So, it's not a matter of simple file substitution. Is there another way to recover bookmarks from a file?

Hello,

I have recently been having difficulties with my Firefox Bookmark bar at the top of the screen.

The addresses change and I cannot use them. They look different. I just updated them a day ago and they've already gone back to this look and don't work anymore.

Please see screenshot.

Thank you.

Hi All my icons changed to a globe image yesterday. I don't know why. However, I discovered that if I opened a bookmark, the correct icon reappeared. With 30 bookmarks to work on, this seemed like a lot of time, BUT your can "Open All Bookmarks in Tabs" and if you wait long enough, all your icons will be restored to those which the websites supply.

  1. 1 When I open firefox there is a bookmarks toolbar displayed at the top.
  1. 2 When I go Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > click Bookmarks Toolbar > the bookmarks don't match what I see in the browser in #1 above.

How do I fix this?

I uploaded a screen shot of the browser toolbar and the application bookmarks toolbar.

Do you see that they are not the same in my attached image?

The browser tool bar has PurpC after FamilyS. Application (in manage book marks) the bookmarks toolbar has LFTWeb after FamilyS. I want the browser to match what is in the application Bookmark Toolbar.

I have turned sync off, that caused the issue in the first place. I had a recent saved bookmark file, that matches what is in the application, it is not updating the toolbar in the browser.

Thanks, Stacey

Can we move sidebar to bottom? I am interested in using a Find and Replace addon and have it snap to the bottom and appear where the vanilla Ctrl+F find bar appears. I know there is no GUI option to do this as described in (https://mzl.la/3vUbsmq) which only offers left/right but could there be a way to do this with userchrome css? I would have no idea where to begin in coding such a thing.

Thanks
