Have Firefox 20.0 I right clicked one of my downloads on the downloads list . It erased the whole entire list away. I want to restore all my list of downloads back in the library list I think they call it. This is the fault of that new crappy 20.0 update. I liked the old way better. Had open, go to containing folder, view download link, remove from list...... Who would put erase entire list in one click was a jerk. And the horrible left column baloney I can't stand. The green arrow is awful too. Firefox is like ebay now. A million lousy unwanted changes making it worse.

Please tell me how to restore my list of downloads. Where you click tools then downloads. And If can get them back. Tell how to put downloads back like 19.0 looked worked no arrow, no column no lousy right click drop down. Step by step please I'm a novice not bill gates.

This is a new PC running Windows 7 and iGoogle is my home page. My desktop short cut icons used to have "personalised" pics but after a day or two using the new PC they all changed to either the Firefox logo or a little map of the world. Why did this happen and how do I get the old logos back? I have a screen shot saved on my desktop if anyone wants to see it.

Hi

I was having issues and it turned out that my system date and time were wrong (don't I feel the fool, thanks all who helped). Anyway did loads of things to try and fix issue including a reset. Is there anyway I can recover, transfer, whatever the correct term maybe, my bookmarks from the old firefox data folder back to my browser?

Thanks

I want to work offline sometimes, and to easily access some of my bookmarks to offline manuals and such. Right now I only know how to open a FF browser, then select "work offline", then select the bookmark. But I'd rather make it easier by having a folder (eg."offline bookmarks") pasted into my PC's startup menu. How can I do this? I have Windows XP Pro. FF version 24. Thanks!

My gf inadvertently deleted all of my Firefox history. Long ago I had asked her not to ever delete my Internet history, because I use that stuff for my writing and editing work, but I take that she did it today by accident, because she usually does not do this on my computer - she does do it on her computer, regularly.

I'd like to get this stuff [info] back.

Someone told me to look for the places.sqllite files - I found those, fortunately, and I copied them to a different subdir as well, for safekeeping.

But I have not yet figured out how to load this profile info back in to ff.

When I save a page to my bookmarks it doesnt show up in my bookmarks tab. They show up if I click show all bookmarks and scroll down to end, but they do not show up on my list of bookmarks in the regular bookmarks tab. How do I get them to start showing up again on the regular bookmarks area instead of only in the show all bookmarks area?

After recently having a problem reinstalling my old bookmarks, I'm now wondering if there is a easy way to backup my very recent bookmarks, when I enter my bookmarks from the menu tab? I don't see a link within the bookmarks tab to do so. It would be nice to see a specific link within the bookmarks tab to do such a function. Does anyone have any solutions, or know a way to quickly backup my bookmarks? Thank you.

I've tried the interesting method suggested here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/941531 "An alternative to merge bookmarks is to use two profiles and restore a JSON backup in each of them. Use Copy in the Library (Bookmarks Manager) of the second Firefox instance to Copy selected bookmarks to the clipboard and Paste them into the Library of the Firefox instance opened with the default profile" however,by the looks of it,this basically copied the selected bookmarks from one library to the other as html links:original tags from the first profile were not visible in the second Library. Was it supposed to happen,and if so,is there any other workaround to copy/merge bookmarks between profiles,*preserving* tags ?
