    Hey All,

    Somehow, a Bookmark Folder was accidentally removed from my Firefox Favorites Folder. I still have that Folder in IE. How do I take JUST THAT ONE FOLDER and its contents and get it back into Firefox?

    If it just happened in the last couple days, click Bookmarks>Organize Bookmarks.
    On the Library window, click Import and Backup>Restore>click a file with a date from before the loss.

    Glad to see you got it. (y)

    The backups go back 5 days. They are JSON files located in the Bookmark Backups folder in the Profile. You can save one to another location so it won't get overwritten and use it at a later time if you need it.
