Cannot restore bookmarks after update

Hello. Yesterday I updated my Firefox, and it did not import my favorites. I've saved in JSON format. In the menu of the restoration, he back all previous restore points, but when I try to restore/import, none of them, the browser crashes and I get a message similar to the one that I join you. I tried everything I read in the forums... delete the places.sqlite file, adding to the maintenance of places & Auto-Sort Bookmarks. I tried a system restore to go back to my old version (which works, but favorites are gone now and the problem persists)... nothing is solved the problem and I am very sad to lose the value of my few years of bookmarks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Or if you have a * ton * of bookmarks - have you tried just pressing "Continue" whenever it appears? Maybe your computer needs time to gnaw on the data.

Several times when I get this error message, my computer must just still a minute or two to reflect on what he's trying to do.

  • Cannot create folders after update of Lenovo to tab 2 A10

    My Tablet has downloaded an update for Lenovo this morning. After the update, all my files are gone, and my apps are spread over two pages in alphabetical order. I'm unable to hold and drag to create new folders. When I take an application icon, it brings to the top of the home screen to move the shortcut to the application. How to create folders after update?

    I just thought of it. You must move the shortcuts to the application in one of the home screens, then you can hold and drag to create folders. This seems like an unnecessary extra step...

  • Cannot add or organize the bookmarks after update of Mozilla

    Did an update of Mozilla yesterday. Subsequently all the bookmarks and the superior browser tool bar had disappeared. With the community help I Got those backward with the exception of at least one category/title of the bookmark. Research on this title he has not revealed, but the search for bookmarks which were under this title aired on search results. However it was not clear how to create the title again and put the bookmarks under this title. The function to organize the bookmarks is missing. Also the feature to create new bookmarks disappeared.

    The menu planning is context sensitive. If you click on the bookmarks Menu in the left pane, or double-click it in the right pane, then Firefox should list current folders and bookmarks in the menu - and organize most of the items shaded in the menu should come back to life.

  • WRT160N... password does not work to get back in line to restore settings after update firmware.

    The reason for the update of the firmware has been that the router would constantly disconnect, even if the ISP has been connected.  I was hoping that would solve the problem.

    Failed to connect to router just after the firmware has been updated successfully (what said on the screen), but could not use "continue" to to precede.

    Because the screen indicates the success, I closed the browser and reset the default router.

    The next step in the process is to access the configuration page of the router web-based and restore my settings.

    The PROBLEM... Now my password does not work to allow me access to the page of the router's web-based Setup to restore the settings.

    I have an account, but nowhere in the account he mentions the password settings.

    When you reset the default router, the router returns to a cache of user name and a password of 'admin' (without the quotes).  Please try to connect to your router.

    If you continue to have problems, then you must try to reset the router by default.

    To reset your router by default, follow these steps:

    (1) turn off all computers, the router and the modem and disconnect from the wall.
    (2) disconnect all the wires of the router.
    (3) turn on the router and let it start up completely (1-2 minutes).
    (4) press in and hold the reset for 30 seconds button, then release it, then let the router reset and restart (2-3 minutes).
    (5) turn the router.
    (6) connect a computer cable to port 1 of the router (NOT to the internet port).
    (7) turn on the router and let it start up completely (1-2 minutes).
    (8) the power of the computer (if the computer has a wireless card, make sure it's off).
    (9) try ping on the router. To do this, click the 'Start' button > all programs > Accessories > command prompt. A black DOS window will appear. Enter the following text: "ping" (without the quotes) and press the Enter key. You will see 3 or 4 lines that begin with ' response to... ". "or"Request timed out". If you see "reply from...". ", your computer has found your router.
    (10) open your browser and point it to This will take you to the login page of your router. Leave the user name blank and in the password field, enter "admin" (without the quotes). This will take you to your router configuration page. Note the version number of your firmware (usually found near upper right corner of the screen). Exit your browser.

    If you get this day without problem, try the Setup disk (or configure the router manually, if you prefer) and see if you can get your work and router configuration.

    If you can not ' response to... ". "in step 9 above, your router is probably dead. A report with this problem

    If you get a response in step 9, but cannot complete step 10, is that your router is dead or the firmware is damaged. Related to this issue.

    If you need additional assistance, please indicate your ISP, the make and model of your modem, the firmware version of your router and the results of steps 9 and 10. In addition, if you receive error messages, copy them exactly, and report.

    Please let me know how things turn out for you.


    After you choose to click on a suggestion to speed up browsing on Firefox, I lost my favorites. When I try to restore I get a window saying "Unable to process the backup file." What can I do to get back them?

    You try to restore a recent backup of JSON or is it a backup made by an older version of Firefox?

    Is - this tablet backup with a .jsonlz4 file extension?

    You can check for problems with the database places.sqlite file in the Firefox profile folder.

  • Cannot run programs after updates

    On 17 downloaded and installed updates, Service pack 2 for windows, service pack 2 for Office 2007, update KB967642 for office, 5 a security updates for office, silver lamp, after that, I found that all installed widows games ie. solitair, spiders etc: wouldn't, for game executable error XXX has stopped working. This has happened once before and after contacting the provider of my PC, we finished by performing a restore factory setting which has removed all installed programs. I don't want to do what I've only had the PC since January 2009 and already done 2 reset factory for similar reasons. I also now had a breakdown with an audio editing program that has bad but on the import of a music file, the program closes. I uninstalled all updates except office service Pack 2 and update 967642 KB giving not the option uninstall programs and features which had no effect on the games. I uninstalled the software for the program audio and reinstalled from the CD of the program, but I still have the same problem. I could not perform a restore as there is no restore point before the installation of the update. The factory reset was carried out on May 11, 2009, the date where the full system has been updated. My OS is Vista Home premium Acer Aspire M3201, processor Quad-Core AMD Athlon (TM) 9150e 1.80 GHz. ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics onboard, the DD Realtek Audio Manager. Is it possible to restore these items and all the other programs that I've not yet used and can be done? I'm only a user base with no or very little technical knowledge.

    Hello PGSW,
    Good to see your reply, I'm sorry to hear that the issue is still unresolved.
    I would like to ask you a number of things:
    1 > please tell me the name of the system manufacturer.
    2 > you get an error when you try to use the windows movie maker or windows media player.
    3 > if you do not insert a CD or DVD you are able to use Windows media very good player?
    I suggest you to check the sound and pilots display in Device Manager and update with the latest and check.
    You can also try to do a scan online virus bygoing to:
    Once you are on the home page, click on "full service scan" and make a scan of the computer.
    Please let me know about the results.

  • Access of BBM cannot BBM shop after update to Version BBM since beta Zone

    Phone = Z10STL100-3

    BB10 =

    After the update to BBM beta area to the last official version I can't access BBM shop. The BBM app shows a screen with a blue header that says BBM Shop with a message in the center of the screen that says "cannot open BBM store" with a button "Try again" message below.

    Of course, I tried the button try again without success, I did the equivalent of a battery pull because I needed to pass an empty battery with a charged battery.

    At the suggestion of a friend BBM I had tried to change the time settings and time zone and tried to access the BBM shop and even tried after set time settings and TZ return to the original settings.

    I also tried a traction battery after a hold button close and still can't access BBM Shop.

    I understand there are very few others who have the same problem.

    Thank you for your help and wait until the full version is an OK option.

    10.6 just releaased and can now access the shop with her again

  • I can't go to my bookmarks after update for Sierra

    I have a MacBook Pro. I just updated this week to Sierra with no problems, but now when I click on multiple points in the upper left corner to reveal my favorites and my playlist only, it displays the top sites page and does not open my favorites and reading list, as it used to.

    Can someone tell me how to access my bookmarks and playlist in the Sierra? I'm sure it's something in the settings or something escapes me. My Bookmark Bar is the top of the page, yet. I can't find my bookmarks and reading list.

    Thank you

    I thought about it, I had to go to Favorites on top and tell Safari to display in the Sidebar again.

  • Awesome Bar search are more all bookmarks after update of FF 34

    I just upgraded to FF34 and having a horrible time, everything works well again. My current problem is that when I type a name in the awesome bar, it will not look at ALL my favorites. It shows some, but not all. For example if I type Dev, it shows correctly my bookmark for the Guru Dev. If I type fire, it shows nothing even though I have 4-5 bookmarks related to firefox. If I type the letter "s" I see 5 favorite partners but not good. I have the address bar in the historical settings and bookmarks. I have not found solutions on the web and am at a loss what to try next. I even deleted the bookmark and it added. Doesn't seem to help.

    I eventually found my own solution. For anyone who is interested, here is what I had to do to solve this problem:

    Steps to solve the problem of the Awesomebar (address bar), not finding a few bookmarks:
    Press Ctrl + Shift + B to display all bookmarks
    Click on import and backup
    Click backup
    Save the file
    Closing of Firefox
    Go to the Mozilla Director profile (on a Windows 7 box is probably in C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\YouFireFoxProfileName)
    Make a copy of the folder bookmarkbackups, places.sqlite, places.sqlite - shm and places.sqlite - wal
    Remove all files in the bookmarkbackups folder
    Delete the places.sqlite, places.sqlite - shm and places.sqlite - wal
    Open Firefox
    Press Ctrl + Shift + B to display all bookmarks
    Click on import and backup
    Click on restore > > choose file
    Select the file from earlier
