Hi...
I've just updated to the very latest FF...
However, I had the 'Recently Bookmarked' showing but now it's gone completely.
Can someone tell me how I can re-instate it?
Many thanks

Open the Bookmarks sidebar Ctrl+B and click on Bookmarks Menu to expand the list of Bookmarks... Recently Bookmarked should be the 3rd item in the tree.
Do you realize if it weren't for Edison we'd be watching TV by candlelight?

Hi Jay...many thanks for taking time to reply.
However, when I click on 'All Bookmarks' the pane on the right shows: Bookmarks Toolbar/Bookmarks Menu/Unsorted Bookmarks.
When 'Bookmarks Toolbar' clicked, it's showing as 'empty'. That's where 'Recently Bookmarked' used to be
I tried creating a 'New Bookmark' and naming it 'Recently Bookmarked', but the 'Add' tab stayed 'greyed out'...
Any more suggestions?

Close Firefox and Launch it in Firefox Safe Mode by holding down the Shift key while clicking on the Firefox Icon. Then see what you have. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode
BTW, so I understand.. Are all Bookmarks Missing... Do you use more than one Firefox Profile... Are you or have you been running in Private Browsing mode? Do you have Firefox set to clear data at shutdown in Tools > Options?

It's a folder, not a bookmark. I don't know if creating a folder with that name will automatically save recent bookmarks though. Seems like FF would create a new folder on restart, like rebuilding a cache.

Hi fellas...'dfoulkes' especially...many thanks!
The 'about: config' remedy worked:
Type 'about:config' in address bar > scroll down to: 'browser.places.smartBookmarksVersion' > change value 4 to zero > OK > restart FF
