Wynona, did you try places.sqlite as I mentioned?
Edit: I found a way to sign in, but it seems that I'm no longer recognized.
Oh, well, they're gone and I'm not going to spend any more time on it.
I'm going to get a password manager and go from there.
You could copy places.sqlite from another of your computers if you have them.
The problems I had in the other preview builds have been sorted in the new build
so everything peachy here.
You ain't gonna believe this, Trucker, but they're gone on Lappy too!
I'm thinking that since Microsoft automatically syncs everything I have together, what happens to one will happen to all! I know that when I change backgrounds on one computer, backgrounds are changed on everything! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
My next project is to un-sync everything in the house! I'm not letting this happen again!
refresh FF? And perhaps dig a little deeper and try to troubleshoot syncing in FF.
Don't forget that you had a rootkit on your PC and it may need a little more action for full recovery.
I have done everything everyone has suggested, and still no bookmarks. In the meantime, I tried Edge again. Thus far, it meets my requirements, and has been OK. I'm not a browser power user. So, this morning I decided to start adding bookmarks just to see how that would go.
Imagine my surprise when I clicked on Bookmarks, and there was my saved listing! Don't get excited . . . every "bookmark folder" was empty and there were sometimes two and even three of the same folder, but at least I have a pattern to go by.
So, I've spent what I'll consider quality time deleting duplicate folders and older things I no longer have an interest in. My list is much shorter now, and I'll just start to "refill" it as the need arises. Once that's done, I will, of course, import the list to Firefox.
Although, I'm finding I kinda like the way Edge is going. I will probably spend more time getting to know its capabilities and how to back up my bookmarks! In both Edge and Firefox!
Thanks everyone for trying to help. It has been a learning experience I hope not to repeat. I am moving on, and it's very possible I will leave Firefox behind. Only time will tell.
Case closed with no apparent solution!
