Been using Firefox portable just fine for months, but now my Bookmarks bar is gone and I see this:
"The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem."
Which links to this:
"This error happens when a database file that stores bookmarks and browsing history (places.sqlite) and related site icons (favicons.sqlite) can’t be accessed by Firefox."
So a recent update seems to have broken where Firefox saves and/or accesses this data.
Firefox > Data > profile > bookmarkbackups
the last one is dated 11/25/21
Opening that file in Notepad is just gobbledygook to me.I see pieces of the names of some of the bookmarks I had, but lots of other chaff.
So has this been reset and I need to make a new bookmark bar with my bookmarks, or is this an update bug, don't do anything, and an update will bring them all back, eventually.
