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.
-—happened to me about 6 months ago when I got a new computer—a restart fixed it-—
Hope you get your missing bookmarks issue resolved. I had to stop using Firefox on my MacBookPro. I had used it for years, specifically to view FR, especially during the days when the site got overloaded with replies on live debate, election, or speech threads. It worked fine for the longest time. Never had a problem. Then two upgrades ago, it started acting up, not responding and hanging on loading pages.When I’d try to quit it, it wouldn’t close on its own so I’d have to Force Quit. I tried resetting it, but that didn’t work, and I wrote to Firefox Support, but never got a response. I upgraded to Version 50.0, but it was doing the same thing so I switched to Chrome, which I’m not totally happy with, but it works for the most part. I just updated to 50.0.2, and will try using it again, but at this point I don’t have much hope. It seems Mozilla issues a lot of updates so I don’t know what’s going on with them.
I never trust anything with bookmarks. I save copies of them in various formats and stash them in various places like a squirrel.
Beware—there are FAKE Firefox popup screens screaming for updates. You may have been punked.
A menu box will come up with "History" as a choce. Click on it.
Another menu box will open with Most current-used links. At the bottom is a choice "Show All History." Click on it."
Another menu box will open on the left side of your screen with "Library" on the title bar. The box has two panes. On the left pane is a choice for "Last Seven Days." Click on it.
Then in the right pane, all the links you used in the last seven days will appear.
You can link to any of these entries.
The choice in the left hand pane also allows you to get to any of your Bookmarks.
I used CCleaner within the last seven days, and it removed all the history entries accessible that drop down when you click on the down arrow that is within the address box, but it does not eras the links available from the Firefox procedure above.
Start button> Run then paste this in:
You will see a folder that has a random file name. Open it and you should see a folder called: bookmarkbackups
Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer
I got a recent notice to update Firefox using the same language. I noticed the link to the upgrade had a domain name that looked odd, and it wasn’t mozilla.org.
So, you might have been conned into installing malware.
