Recovering Bookmarks from TWRP backup - Location of bookmarks.db
I got into a mishap with my device running Android Pie and had to wipe everything. I was able to do a TWRP nandroid backup prior to wiping (but could not restore.)
I then upgraded to Android 11, after the wipe and reinstalled Privacy Browser.
I then extracted the TWRP backup files (mostly tar files) and when navigating these, while I can see the /data/data/com.someapp/files/databases/ directory of other apps, I just cannot locate the one for /data/data/com.stoutner.privacybrowser.standard/databases/ thus cannot adb pull bookmarks.db to try to recover my bookmarks. (BTW, would I also need the bookmarks.db-journal file?)
Any feedback on this issue?
This was installed on --user 0 (default user.)

Based on your description it doesn't sound like your backup managed to captured all of Privacy Browser's files.
Although the location can vary a little by device and if Privacy Browser is installed on the internal storage or an SD card, the bookmarks database file is located in a location similar to the following:
You do not need to restore the bookmarks.db-journal file. The journal file is just temporary data that is stored there before it is written to the main database.
