Using Firefox on desktop, Windows 11. I am a long term Firefox fan/user.

My problem is I cannot find anywhere an easy method to add a shortcut on my Home Screen (which has now been a FF feature for some considerable time).

I am sure there was something available to do this in a prior version some time back. If I search the internet, I only come across articles describing how to do it on Firefox Android.

I know I can manually edit a box on the Home Screen to create what I need.

Sometimes new web sites that I visit appear in the boxes and I can then pin them in place - but the behavior around this is very erratic and unreliable - seems like random chance for an icon to appear on the home screen for a newly visited site. If this was more consistent, I could work with that.

BUT - where is the **intuitive** option??!!

I should be able to right-click on a tab and select "Add to Home Screen".

As simple as that.

Or drag and drop a link, or tab to the home screen - but this just opens the link. I have tried everything obvious that I can think of.

Anyone?

Many thanks :)

I like to keep shortcuts to my favorite, most often used sites on the New Tab page. One of them, to Yahoo, keeps disappearing, and is replaced by sites that I do not visit very often. How can I recreate a shortcut on my new Tab page to get me to Yahoo Finance?

I uploaded an image of my New Tab page as it currently exists. I used to have Yahoo where the "prime-genetics" shortcut appears. I want to get rid of that one and replace it with Yahoo. Thanks!

Bookmarks - No Longer Able to Select A Folder To Save Bookmark to

In the past, when I wanted to save a bookmark I could choose a specific folder to save it to. So for example, if I found a newsource that I wanted to bookmark to my News folder I would click on Bookmarks, Bookmark Current Tab and a dialogue box popped up that allowed me to choose the folder to save the bookmark to. This dialogue box no longer opens when I click on Bookmark Current Tab. Instead, all bookmarks are automatically saved to my Other Bookmarks folder and I have to drag them to the folder I want. I'm not exactly sure if this change happened with a Firefox update, or if I did something to change the process. Is there a way that I can fix this and have the choose a folder dialogue box pop up when I save a folder? Thanks for your help, Jeff

I updated the operative system on my laptop but, when I opened Firefox and signed into my profile, it didn't import my old bookmarks, only the browsing history. Passwords and other data are all there, only the bookmarks are gone.

Is there a way to get them back?

Fix this issue from your end. Provide a support phone number to call in to fix it. I do all of the suggestions written but it doesn't work. I go thru a 15 minute process trying to log on and sometimes it works and they magically show up and other times, like now. No bookmarks. This is ridiculous. There is no support, you are asking for volunteers to offer support. This seems totally screwed up. Fix it!

Drag and drop tab to bookmarks toolbar not working

When I want to drag and drop a tab into a folder of the bookmark toolbars, I can't do it for some folders.

Specifically, it doesn't work for folders that are somewhat in the area of the tab preview animation that pops up when I start dragging the tab. So that is not the same folders every time, it depends on the tab location in the tab bar.

I hope that the explanation was clear enough, I did a screen record also, made it available here https://ufile.io/pikit6xo (335 kB).

Do someone had a similar issue and found a solution?

I'm in troubleshooting mode. Firefox 100, just updated, but bug was there before. Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

When I try to make a bookmark none of my folders are showing. I can use the folders when linking to a bookmark but not when trying to place a new bookmark. I have many folders but the attached image shows what I get when trying to choose the correct folder to place the bookmark. Only the three options show even though I know all my folders are in the pulldown bookmark tab. I did have a computer glitch where many of my computer files somehow ended up in the trash including Firefox. I moved the trashed files into a new folder on my desktop and was able to recover the bookmarks by choosing the Firefox backup. My question is how do I get the existing folders to once again show when making a bookmark so I can place/organize the bookmark in the correct bookmark file?

For some reason my Bookmark Tool Bar no longer displays anything. It is a blank strip across the top of the screen. However all of my bookmarks can be displayed on the right or left side of the screen in a vertical format. I can not find a way to repopulate the original Bookmark Tool Bar and find the current display very awkward give the number of bookmarks I have on file. Is this a result of an intentional upgrade or software failure?

new firefox user trying to migrate from chrome i want to bookmark my trello board but it is not using the right icon. it is using the generic trello icon instead of the one that is actually visible when i have them open. i use 3 different trello boards and need all 3 to be distinguishable only by the icon so this is a critical feature for me to be able to use this browser. this problem doesn't happen in chrome which i have been using. i have tried many extensions to try to locate the image that is actually being used, it doesn't work. i can't find the image being downloaded. how do i get the same icon that is showing in the tab to show up in the bookmarks bar?

I have my book marks in a side menu. Recently that side menu disappeared and when I click on the menu to install it again my bookmarks are not there and have been replaced with a bunch of stuff I don't use.
