I AM FRUSTRATED.
MY DROPDOWN LIST GOT CLEARED.
I HAVE A COUPLE SITES IN THE LIST, BUT NOT ALL THE ONES BEFORE THE GLITCH.

HOW CAN I ADD URL'S TO THE DROPDOWN LIST IN FIREFOX.
THERE HAS GOT TO BE A SOLUTION BY NOW, OTHER THAN THEIR ALGO THEY USE, WHICH IS OUT OF OUR CONTRO!!

If you have a backup...
I'd be frustrated too if that happened to me.

You're on a very old FF.
Has it been a long while since you've opened FF?
(From what I hear FF likes to "start over" when it see's a stale Profile opening. And in that respect, you may have a back of old on your desktop?)

Moving to Firefox Support.

How did you create the backup?

Is this about the location bar drop-down list that shows a list of recently visited websites?

That list shows items based upon 'frecency'.
If your history got cleared then the visit count and bonus points got reset and you would have to visit links often enough to make them reappear at the top of the list.
