I have an extensive folder setup of bookmarks 4 & 5 levels deep. I check for updates from time to time and if I see my Firefox needs updating I back out of the update window, perform my backup and then updated... If adding to that folder makes it become unwieldy, I'll find the time to group the similar bookmarks within that folder into their own subfolders within that folder.
After FF does its updates, I find some of the lower levels missing. Russian It was an accumulation of stuff that I have encountered on Youtube over the past 10 years. Is there some way to extract just the Bookmark data from old profile backups to see if I can getthis folder back? it is always a good idea to perform a profile backup just prior to updating Firefox... Even a small corruption in 'any' file could cause (in this case) something to go wrong with a file. By now, I have HUNDREDS of subfolders nested 4, 5, & 6 levels deep.
I don't check every day to make sure that all my folders are there. The Youtube bookmarks are the most problematical because if you remember a unifying concept that all the bookmarks had in common and you enter that in the search Youtube, they will reflect that idea into their list of most popular videos, pick out a couple that are slightly related, and then feed you page after page of links to videos absolutely nothing in common with the videos that you had bookmarked.
It can literally take weeks to track down the original videos that you saved for later scrutiny.
So I am specifically NOT trying to overwrite my whole bookmarks collection with an older version.
I want to be able to peruse a display of the bookmarks tree in an older profile, and copy only.selected folders in that tree over into my current tree where they are missing.
For Firefox user interface issues in menus, developer tools, bookmarks, location bar, and preferences.
I don't know if this is a problem or a functionality request, but here goes: If the URL of a bookmarked page changes (e g due to site restructuring) I would like to be able to add the new bookmark in such a way that it replaces the old one, rather than getting added beside it.
Many Firefox bugs will either be filed here or in the Core product. Clearing duplicate Firefox processes in the task manager also resolves the issue.

Expected Results: Firefox should be opening fully functional.
I know for a fact that I didn't delete them: some of them are ten years old and I NEVER delete ANYTHING when I'm looking for bookmarks. The reason this is possible is FF's "Search" function in "Show all bookmarks".
The most recent one was a folder with about 15 URLs about Russian ballet from Youtube. So I don't keep track of all this stuff; I bookmark everything that interests me and I ask FF to find where I'm hoarding other items like it when I go to save another one.
