Restoring Firefox Bookmarks with Backblaze

On both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, Firefox stores bookmarks locally. So bookmarks are able to be backed up by Backblaze. 

 

1. To restore your bookmarks, first, navigate to the "View/Restore Files" Page of your account:

5. Once the Restore is ready and downloaded, unzip the "Bookmarkbackup" folder onto your computer, open the folder, and copy the desired recovery file 

(please note that you can use the dates noted in the file names to determine which recovery file you wish to use)

 

6. Locate this same folder on the computer itself, and paste the recovery file into it.

 

7.  Open your Firefox Browser and click the Library button on the toolbar

(if the library button does not appear, click the menu button instead, and select "Library" from there )
