I upgraded my macbook from Mojave to Catalina and all the Firefox Bookmarks disappeared. I then found a folder on the desktop labeled Old Firefox Data and I tried to restore by going to bookmarks, show all bookmarks, restore, choose file, and then adding in the bookmark backup file from the folder on the desktop (ends in jsonlz4). Unfortunately this didn't work. I would appreciate help....I have alot of bookmarks! Thank you!

Why has firefox deleted my bookmarks, It's getting as bad as microsoft. Don't ask just screw us over and no answers to fix it. Problem is this bullshit has been going on for years and it is still a problem,why can't this be fixed or stopped. I now have to try and find how to get all my log ins for banking and alot of other important sites. I see below you have some educated guesses, well I don't need guesses I need the problem fixed. I fear downloading from your site as it might destroy more of my system. I don't see no dam window at the top.

How can I get my bookmarks back and stop it happening again.Please.

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?

Is this possible? I like the sleekness of not having the bookmarks bar but it would be very helpful to have it popup when I open a new tab only. (I use this feature in Brave browser, but I prefer Firefox)

I searched the entire web and looked for add-ons and couldn't find a solution. I have attempted to create a custom chrome css file but that didn't work.

What can I do?

edit: added question mark to title.

Hello there,

I am having issues restoring a profile for an user. Long story short, there was some malware messing with the computer, and in the process of quarantine and cleaning the machine out, the Firefox Profile got deleted. I was able to recover the Profile folder, and I see all the files and folders there (places.sqlite, bookmarkbackups, cookies.sqlite, etc.)

I have been following the process of restoring the profile, (copying and pasting those files on a new profile for example). However, every time I move all the files back, and open Firefox, it creates a places.sqlite.corrupt, and a couple of other 'corrupt' files. And none of the bookmarks or any other info get restored.

Any advise? Thanks in advance!

I have the most recent Firefox and the most recent Windows. I cannot alphabetize my favorite websites. I have added everything to the "Other bookmarks" tab and I cannot find anywhere to automatically alphabetize my favorites. I click on show all bookmarks and add folders in an effort to alphabetize but they don't even show up when I go into the "Other Bookmarks" tab.

1) How to alphabetize 2) How to add folders

Thanks!

Two weeks ago I reloaded Windows 10 because of a suspected malware infection. This required me to reload my apps. After reloading Firefox the custom icons have disappeared from some, but not all of the toolbar menu items. Why? Rather, a little globe appears, which I'm guessing is a default icon. -- Why did some of the icons disappear while others did not? -- How do I remove the "little globes" as they're just taking up space and have no meaning -- Where do the custom items come from?

Hi there, I run FF 73 on Lubuntu, and since the upgrade chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul is no longer found. I use it as a handy bookmarks and downloads manager within a tab. Error message:

"Firefox can't find the file at jar:file:///usr/lib/firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/browser/content/browser/places/places.xul. "

I realize that this question is similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223548#answer-1127393 but it doesn't solve my issue. In fact the URI's listed also don't work I have found:

   chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/historySidebar.xul 

Please advise. Thanks for your help!

I have installed a new computer (Mac mini). I have synchronized with old computer (imac 2011). All bookmarks transferred successfully to new computer. In the right places etc (Bookmarks menu; Bookmarks toolbar etc ). All the headings in the toolbar are correct with all the bookmarks in the dropdown menus from the toolbar as before. The problem is when I go to ADD a New bookmark the old toolbar headings don't show up in the Add Bookmarks dropdown options. How do I add a new bookmark into a list of an existing toolbar heading or existing list from the toolbar ?

I have an android with Firefox installed, and a Mac where I also use Firefox. When I first installed Firefox on each, the bookmarks matched. I do the bulk of work on my laptop, but occasionally have articles I wish to bookmark on my phone. I have done a sync, but when I go to access the bookmarks on my phone, they are not updated to what is on my laptop.

When I check to see what devices I have connected through Firefox, my phone does not show up, and when I hit the link to "connect a device" all it does it take me to a link to send a text to invite my phone to install it. Which, it's already installed.

I really need these bookmarks to talk to each other properly. What am I missing?

Dear community,

After my OS re-installation I was hoping and I was pretty sure, that my Firefox account is backing-up all of my bookmarks. I have done this again in the past and I had the bookmarks bar there always waiting for me intact. This time though I had to reset my Firefox account password as I forgot to store it somewhere and after that I managed to get access to my account but the bookmarks are nowhere to be found.

Is there a way to restore them without having a backup file (JSON or something else from the previous OS installation?). Is Mozilla storing these bookmarks somewhere so I can have them again but from the "cloud"? If not it is quite catastrophic for me. I hope there is a solution!

Thank you in advance!
