I have just upgraded to the Tor Browser Bundle version 3.5. I overwrote my old Tor directory, which normally preserved my bookmarks. With this upgrade, all of my bookmarks are gone. Is there anyway to restore them?

Thank You! All my bookmarks are back. – user843 Dec 28 '13 at 14:03
most easy for me was export bookmarks from old version to html. open new bundle and import from html. all bookmarks were there again. – user3613 Sep 11 '14 at 10:23
I have the same problem with the most recent upgrade of the Tor browser - unfortunatley all my bookmarks were overridden (disappeared) with the new upgrade. I really need those bookmarks, one in particular! I am a relative newbie when it come to computer navigation - can you walk me through the steps of how to restore my previous version of Tor so I can get my bookmarks back? – user7123 Apr 4 '15 at 21:06

The folder-structure between version 2.X and 3.X has changed. While the bookmarks were stored in

\Tor Browser2.X\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

they are now stored in

\Tor Browser3.5\Data\Browser\profile.default.

You better create a new folder for the new TorBrowserBundle and then copy the bookmarks over.

It is recommended to export the bookmarks, unpack the new bundle to a different or new folder, import the bookmarks and then remove the old bundle.
