Hello,

I'm a little angry right now because I have lost bookmarks of all my life and I need your help to repair it please? I don't know why but somehow, Firefox which I use for years ; (Thx by the way) ; corrupted my data on the run...? I started Firefox again but, no extension, no bookmarks, etc.. I Have kept a backup of all this FF profile, just in case.

My 1st step was to try to get a new profile a import my previous data from Firefox Sync - but somehow , I'm angry at myself again for not understanding how FF Sync work, no data from FFSync updated my data - It stayed like this for a long time , like a new profile without data (I used Xmarks before so I thought it was replacing it).

2nd step: I tried to load all bookmarks-xxx.jsonlz4 located in the bookmarkbackups folder from the FF bookmarks tools (Import / export ; etc). FF seems to see all the bookmarks but can't load them. What is really important here is that FF backed up files for like a month and even my oldest file is unusable  : bookmarks-2019-01-19-xxx.jsonlz4 !!

3rd step: I tried to get my data back from FF files, in bookmarks files like bookmarks-2019-01-19-xxx.jsonlz4 from the bookmarkbackups folder. Someone pointed me to use the https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html website but all the jsonlz4 files in the bookmarkbackups folder seems corrupted (or the format of files changed and his tool may need to be updated ?)

Example : File name: bookmarks-2019-01-19_2392_mKZssqkWMZt+Mqt-HOi68A==.jsonlz4; Size: 283114; last modified 18/01/2019 à 12:38:42 (failed JSON parsing: SyntaxError: Unexpected token in JSON at position 21928) Note: To try a different file, reload this page Can't seem to acces the step 2 part even after waiting longer

4th step: tried to get old Backup of my FF Profiles with Windows 10 Shadow Copy System, "Shadow Explorer" or "System Restore Explorer" Found 3 backup wich I restored also, all bookmarks seems to get the same problem. I think I'll need to look in to this because It's not official Windows tools, but I'm really disapointed here.. I think I'll put them on md5sum tools to compare them for a start.

5th step : tried to repair my <places.sqlite> a (80MB files) which I found renamed to sqlite.corrupt. With the help of http://www.froebe.net/blog/2015/05/27/error-sqlite-database-is-malformed-solved/ , all I can get is a empty database at the end, but Im not a sqlite expert so if anyone has an idea :-)

So please, any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. (and sorry for my english)

Hi,

On the 19th of March, for some reason, i started to receive the error: the bookmarks and history system will not be functional because on of firefox's files are in use by another application.

Solutions i've tried:

-Creating a new database (solution 2 when clicking on the 'Learn more' button) -safe mode booting (problem still persists) -running chkdsk and memory diagnostics (no problems) -uninstalling and reinstalling -ive also tried to system restore but i get an error 0x81000204 so I wasnt able to restore it.

I dont really care about my bookmarks, but my history contains some important reference links I need.

I run Windows 8.1pro with what seems to be the most up to date Firefox.

I refreshed Firefox because it kept crashing and loading slowly. My bookmarks didn't come back, and none of the backups will restore. I get the message "Unable to process the backup file." All the backups have zero bytes, but they show the number of items. There's also a message when I reopen Firefox that says "The bookmarks and history system will not be funtional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." but nothing else is running. I restarted my computer and it still says that. I tried deleting the favicons.sqlite and places.sqlite files and it made that message go away, but I still got the "Unable to process the backup file" message when I tried to restore my bookmarks.

I recently decided to re-install Windows 10 on my laptop. I used backup software by Western Digital called "WD SmartWare" to back up all of my files to an external drive.

After I deleted the partition and re-installed Windows 10, I discovered that the backup didn't install the AppData\Roaming folder for some reason (I've contacted them about this already) so I had no Firefox profile.

I tried a few data recovery programs and found lots of old bookmarks files with the .json.lz4 extension. Despite all of my efforts, Firefox is unable to import any of these files. I have a hard time believing they have ALL been corrupted during the deletion. Is there anything I can do to somehow fix the files or diagnose them better? I also tried restoring places.sqlite with similar problems.

My bookmarks have vanished. This problem began when I had iTunes and Firefox open. My iTunes songs were "skipping," which had never happened before. I closed Firefox and iTunes, and I ran my Piriform CCleaner program to clear out temporary files, which I do regularly.

I ended up updating iTunes to make it work, but not before my bookmarks disappeared with the message on my browser: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem."

Worse, Firefox won't allow me to add new bookmarks.

I followed all topics in support and nothing has changed this problem. I've restarted and shut down the computer. I ran a full-system security scan. I even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

Please help!

See question above. This has happened with numerous updates -- data destroyed, passwords, formatting and add-ons and bookmarks are lost by the thousands. This has stopped us cold as a company, losing significant revenues and much labor time to try and repair.

Why the f*ck does Firefox think it is okay to destroy customers data, disrupt their business materially and leave the customer holding the bag WITH NO IN-PERSON LIVE SUPPORT AVAILABLE FROM FIREFOX/MOZILLA TO REMEDIATE THE NUMEROUS PROBLEMS THEY HAVE CAUSED. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.

As a prompt to the "upgrade" to 46.0, Firefox has the nerve to ask the question: "Would you like to "freshen up" your Firefox?" HOW DARE THEY?

I FOR ONE WANT TO KNOW WHO AT FIREFOX IS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS!!!!

I EXPECT A PHONE CALL FROM THAT PERSON -- I HAVE CALLED INTO THEIR MOUNTAIN VIEW OFFICE THREE TIMES WITH NO RESPONSE AND I AM LOSING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AS OUR WHOLE TEAM WAS "UPGRADED" AT THE SAME TIME AND SO OPERATIONS JUST STOPPED.

COULD ANYONE IN THE SUPPORT GROUP WHO KNOWS THE ORGANIZATION, PLEASE PROVIDE A NAME AND CONTACT INFO INCLUDING PHONE FOR THE PERSON ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS COMPLETE S***-SHOW.

THANK YOU.
