unable to Restore .json

Problems and experiences with my extensions on the Windows 7 platform.

unable to Restore .json

Postby classca » Sat Jul 28, 2012 3:45 pm

I have (unfortunately) had to migrate to another machine, but I found a 6 mth old .json but can't get it to restore my bookmarks.

The date and file name is: bookmarks-201-12-28.json..... the message error is not a valid bookkmarks backup... restore aborted.
I have checked permissions of the file and can't find the problem.

When FEBE backs up bookmarks, the file is named bookmarks{profileName}.json. If you use the Fx built-in bookmarks export (Bookmarks > Import and backup > Backup...) the file is named bookmarks-YYYY-MM-DD.json. The backup file you have looks like the kind created by Fx. You don't use FEBE to restore it, but rather Bookmarks > Import and backup > Restore.
