Since the new fancy mozilla update, bookmarks in folders take up 2 if not 3 times as much space, making navigation in folders unnecessarily time consuming, since now you have to scroll to access bookmarks, whereas before you would have them all in one click of the folder. Any way to fix this?

The latest version has been loaded onto my PC. The list of bookmarks, in the drop down menu, has increased in the spacing between the lines. Now my bookmarks list goes off the bottom of the screen, whereas before my bookmarks were all visible. Is there a simple way of reducing the gap between the lines, the font size is OK.

Windows 10 OS Firefox version 89.0 Issue effecting all menus. Larger font and large space between items in drop down menu.

After update to the current version, click on eg: 'Bookmarks' and all bookmarks are listed. However, the font size has increased and there is a significant gap between each bookmark. This means a load of top level bookmarks are not instantly visible until you extend.

This problem is effecting all drop down Menus from the 'Menu Bar', but not the 'Menu Bar' itself and that also includes the 'Menu app icon (3 horizontal lines)'.

I have a large screen/monitor using 1920 x1080, it allows me to display many windows at once, so this must look really bad on anything smaller. I do not need extra scrolling or additional clicking etc as it only increases RSD issues. I do not have any sight issues.

How can I reset all menus back to the settings used prior to version 89.0 so that it looks normal?

Or is this a bug? I cannot believe this was actually by design.

Cheers for any help. It's driving me potty.

It's very convenient to drag a url from the address bar into a bookmark folder, unless the folder has a lot of entries, then scrolling the list by dragging the new bookmark off bottom or top of the list to look for the intended destination, is too fast & prone to drop off top or bottom.

I guess this is something to do with scroll physics ? but I tried a few hopeful looking possibles in about:config without success - very impressive all that, I had no idea.. but... it would make my work easier if I knew what to adjust.

There are three regions where the cursor has different effects. In the central region - where bookmarks and folders are displaye -, moving the cursor does not cause scrolling. In the top & bottom regions the cursor causes scrolling up and down respectively. I imagine there is a parameter to control the proportionality between the distance from cursor to region-boundary & scroll-speed. Is this how it works ? Can I adjust that, or is there some other way to make this interaction more controllable ?

I'd be grateful for a reply, but even if not, I want to express my gratitude for the great work of this project. It is amazing to see the resilience of open software against the tsunami of commercially driven development - good though some of that is. It almost gives me hope for humanity ;-> Thank you all

Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

Hello,

My questions concerns the "Remove Folder" selection.

I right-clicked a folder on the bookmarks drop-down menu, and accidentally selected remove folder. Does this mean that the folder has been deleted or does it mean that it has been collapsed and the constituent book marks have been moved elsewhere (other bookmarks, bookmark toolbar, etc).

If the folder has in fact been deleted, is there any way of retrieving it?

Thank you for your help.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox (89.0) on both of my Windows 7 computers as well as on my iPhone. I have this really annoying glitch where I'll bookmark a page, and Firefox will occasionally duplicate that bookmark hundreds of times. I've gone in and deleted the duplicates, but then the problem re-occurs, so I'm trying to figure out how to finally fix this! I've already spent several hours looking through your help forums and trying to fix it, but nothing seems to work. Here's what I've done:

I turned off sync on all my devices. I also noticed that I had the iCloud synch extension on one of my computers, so I removed that, since I read that might cause some issues. Then I went and cleaned up the bookmarks on one of my computers, deleting all the duplicate entries, and I exported an HTML version of my bookmarks to my computer and also created a backup .json file. I refreshed Firefox on that computer. And I changed my sync password, since I read somewhere that that would supposedly force my old data to be deleted from Firefox's server.

Then I turned sync back on on that one computer, hoping that the latest version of my bookmarks that were on that computer would now update to Firefox's server. But instead of replacing the old bookmarks file in the cloud, it simply added back the old duplicate bookmarks to my computer (which apparently never got deleted from Firefox servers, despite the password change). Super frustrating. Isn't there a way to force a one-way sync, so the version of the bookmarks file that I have locally -- which has the latest changes -- takes priority??

I then tried going to "Import bookmarks from HTML," hoping that the version I had previously saved would replace this bad, outdated version I had downloaded from the server, but that didn't seem to do anything (I guess import only adds new bookmarks but doesn't delete existing bookmarks?). Could I import the json file instead? If so, how do I do that? I've considered deleting all my bookmarks and then importing the html file again to see if that fixes it, but it looks like the html file doesn't include the bookmarks on my toolbar. Is that correct? If so, I don't want to lose them.

Not sure what this is so glitchy and so difficult to fix. Can someone please help?

I need to copy browsing history and bookmarks from one laptop with FF v.60 to another laptop with FF v.52.

I know there are different ways of doing this, but in my case I don't have use of the source laptop. BUT, I do have the full profile saved in both laptops. I also had saved a json bookmarks copy, but it's 5 days old. No huge deal but I had some major restructuring of my bookmarks yesterday.

There's also sync, but I tried to just sync history and it does nothing. Plus I'm not sure if it's going to sync to "last updated" which is actually the other (destination) laptop with FF v52.

In my profile I see bookmarks clearly, but no history. They are both in places.sqlite? Should I just copy this? What else would be copied?

By the way, in bookmarkbackups folder, I see the last jsonlz4 file is from June 9 12:10 am, not June 10 12:10 am as it should have been perhaps. Does this jsonlz4 file work with the restore command of "import and backup"?

Thank you!

I can't get the bookmark menu back on the screen after update. The drop down only stays on the screen long enough to select one. I have to keep pulling it down after each selection. Some of the bookmarks do not appear on the list. That makes it very slow to check a list of bookmarks. I can't get the bookmark menu on the left side of the screen at all.

There are 2 problems. I don't know maybe they are related so I'm presenting them both. In the past both processes have worked with no problems. Windows 8.1, latest FireFox.

First: Bookmarks Backup Bookmarks tab Show all bookmarks Library opens Import and Backup Backup Bookmarks backup filename window opens pick destination folder - Desktop File name box: bookmarks-2021-06-10.json Save

Only there isn't a file saved on my Desktop. And it's not my computer messing up. I took a snapshot of the Library Bookmarks backup filename window and saved it to the desktop and it worked fine. I thought maybe if I used File Explorer it could find the file bookmarks-2021-06-10.json. It did, but it's still not on the Desktop where I could save it to an external hard drive for a Backup. See attached files.

Second: Bookmarks delete files/folders. I can move files and folders around, just deleting or removing them is a problem.

Method A. Bookmarks tab right click on link or folder I want to delete click Remove Bookmark nothing happens

or Method B. Bookmarks tab Show all Bookmarks Library window opens right click on file/folder want to delete Drop down menu, click Remove Bookmark

or Method C. Bookmarks tab Show all Bookmarks Library window opens choose file to delete Organize drop down menu, click Delete

This is where it gets confusing. For methods B and C sometimes it will delete, sometimes not. Thinking about it, mostly not. I dont know why the difference, I don't think I did anything different to delete one but not the other.

When I open the Bookmarks tab again, I can't tell if the list is the same or not. I don't think it's changed.

I worked really hard on this and then I messed up and lost everything I'd done. So, I started all over, but I don't know if this is as accurate as the first. I hope so.

Please, I'm an old lady simple answers in plain English are always appreciated.
