Skip to comments.Firefox Update deleted all of my bookmarks

I hav been getting nags from Firefox about "updating my obsolete version of Firefox. So I did. And all of my bookmarks disappeared.
Any advice on how to retrieve them? And no, Restore is no help. The update restarted my restore earliest date to after the update. Thanks, Mozilla.
I dumped firefox a while ago and have been using Brave.
I don’t have any probs with Brave, but I’m no expert either.
Try exporting them from any other browser you may use.

i no longer get updates...and my firefox disappeared...i downloaded chrome and most of my old bm came along w/it...
i’m no geek, but i like chrome much better...sooner or l8r they will force me to buy a new ‘puter...till then...
Too late now but I always use Xmarks addon with Firefox. Awesome tool.
They are trying to force you register your email account to save your bookmarks online.
Makes it easier for the NSA. </sarcasm>
For what its worth..I have been nagged to update my Firefox for the last 6 months and I am on the current version. I would run a serious virus/malware scan if I were you.
Backups are your friend...
Start over. I bet you don’t use two-thirds of them.
This might help:
Or search you entire hard drive for "bookmarks.*"
You could also open your Show All Bookmarks and click 'restore' and see what shows up for files.
That looks like a good solution.

“-happened to me about 6 months ago when I got a new computera restart fixed it-”
That happened to me about a year ago and I didn’t know how to fix it either,so I just let it go.
Don’t miss any of them.
