I suddenly and unaccountably lost access to my bookmarks and their contents. Where I used to have two "stars" at the address banner, the left one to bookmark sites, and the right to access bookmark folders and their contents, I now only have one star which bookmarks new sites. I can still see my folders, but cannot access them and cannot tell if they have any contents. I have used Firefox for many years with no problem. I'm stumped and frustrated. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

An automatic update of Firefox which resulted in a "quit/create new profile" choice has removed all my bookmarks

Of the four profiles stored in "about:profile" three are identical (ie. have only the default bookmarks stored) and one, generates a "quit/create new profile" message.

The "bookmarksbackup" folder (in /home/user/.Mozilla/Firefox/zs1jki8t.default) is empty.

The "import/backup" option (in Manage Bookmarks) offers nothing to choose. There is no 'list of dated automatic backups.'

Firefox did not create an "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop.

Browser privacy "strict". "Never remember history" was selected.

Running Firefox in Manjaro (Linux)

Help.

This is a moan more than a question. About every six months or so my bookmark sidebar disappears because i have clicked Control and B without meaning to. And that is how to get it back again. Except, I never remember and search all over the page (View, Options etc) without finding how to get it back. So I eventually do a search for how to recover it and find all the archived guides from when other people had the same problem and the same question and ther same frustration. So my moan/quesion is this: why the blankety blank, doesn't Firefox add something into the menu (View or Options or somewhere) that says "Show toolbar permanently". Would save all this frsutration and irritation. The impression I get is that Mozilla thinks we should not want to have the menu on screen all the time. But that is the problem with users! We have our own way of doing things! Please!

I have the latest version of Firefox for Windows 10. I accidentally sorted my bookmarks by name (hundreds of them in a folder called Other Bookmarks) and want to go back to unsorted...but no matter what I do, even if I check the "unsorted" option, the bookmarks stay in the "sort by name" alphabetized mode.

How do I fix this?

Thank you

When trying to save a bookmark, the menu used to select the folder no longer opens. The bookmark will just be saved in a folder that was selected before the update with this bug. But Firefox does not indicate which folder it was.

Hello all,

We are a medium-sized company and are looking for a viable solution for sharing bookmarks between devices. Does anyone know what the maximum number of devices whose bookmarks can be synchronized with Fireofx is?

Some say five, but I cannot find an authoritative answer to this. Also, if that is true, is there some kind of bussiness solution for this kind of demand?

Kind regards

Ali

I recently installed Firefox version 120.0.1 on Linux Lite 6.6 and logged in to my Mozilla and Firefox accounts, then synced my data. In the past, when I used Ubuntu Desktop 22.04, this method would display all the bookmarks I had saved on other devices that also use Firefox. However, for this case, syncing did not successfully display bookmarks in the Firefox toolbar.

I then tried exporting bookmarks to an HTML file, then importing them into the newly installed Firefox using the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open, so I couldn't import bookmarks.html into the new Firefox installed on Linux Lite 6.6. I also tried restoring from the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open either.

Is there another way to transfer these bookmarks to the newly installed Firefox on Linux Lite?

When I select "Add Bookmark" from the Bookmark dropdown menu on the menu bar, the popup menu to select the location (folder) to place the bookmark quickly flashes open and closed. The bookmark is created, but it is created in the last place that a bookmark was added. If I am still on that tab and I try to use "Edit Bookmark" from the menu bar to open the pop up it also just flashes up and closes.

If I move away from that tab to another one, and then come back to it, the "Edit Bookmark is not even listed as an option."

Can you please assist.

keywords: firefox (111.0 (64-bit)) issue/ bookmarking/ ubuntu. hi, before this version, when i drag a link from the tab link bar, to a bookmark folder, it names the link properly using information from the site (link). eg. a youtube page link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v-gvRxmINg before, when dragged to bookmark, it is named as the video name: 8 Reasons to QUIT CHROME and USE BRAVE Instead! . this helpful to know what the bookmark.

but now, the name is simply the link, ie, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v-gvRxmINg. this is a terrible name.

not sure whether this is the right place for this. this is either a bug or a "new" feature that i have to configure manually the behavior of bookmarking.

this is the info of firefox: -- see attached file. 111.0 (64-bit)

os: ubuntu $ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS Release: 22.04 Codename: jammy

When a new bookmark is created it goes to the end of the bookmark listing in the left panel. How can I force Firefox to automatically put each newly created bookmark in the correct alphabetic position in the left panel Bookmarks panel? I DO NOT want to alphabetize the entire panel, I just want each newly created bookmark to go where is alphabetically belongs. I do not use folders so have one long list for bookmarks menu. thank Bob

Through the years (been using FF since its first months) on various computers, various OS and FF versions, I've kept a bunch of bookmarks in my toolbar for frequently used links that I can QUICKLY "right-click, copy link, paste" (3 steps) into social media posts.

Tonight I opened up my bookmark contextual menu, hit copy, pasted it into my Twitter, and it pasted the title instead of the link!!

How useless is that! A title is easy to type out, a long complex url isn't, having a "copy" (title) instead of the "copy link" is entirely useless!

Now to accomplish same, I have go choose "edit" instead of "copy link" and then "click drag" the url then "copy" then "paste" then close the window. 5+ steps instead of 3. Who on Earth thought changing that function was a good idea?! More steps is NEVER a good direction.

IOS: 12.6.3 Firefox 102.9.0esr macbook rebooted cached cleared

Clarification coming from possible answers: Firefox's "Paste" function is working fine, since the url correctly pastes to Mac PAGES and Facebook. It's the paste to Twitter that does "Title" instead of "url". So obviously a Firefox-Twitter problem.

Variation of problem: I tried "Copy" from Firefox Bookmark Subemnu, then went over to Twitter on Chrome, and the "Paste" to Twitter on Chrome also results in a paste of Title instead of url. I tried "Copy" from Chrome Bookmark Submenu, then paste into Twitter on Chrome, and the "Paste" correctly pastes the url. This points to a mis-programming of the Firefox "Copy" function in the bookmark submenu.

I have lots of bookmarks, which I organise into folders and subfolders. In the last month or so, Firefox will no longer save them to the folder I specify from the pull-down menu when saving but just adds them to the general bookmarks menu. To sort my bookmarks, I have to go into Manage Bookmarks and move them manually. What's happened?

How do I have all my bookmarks and folders sorted by name automatically and permanently? When I open Bookmarks I want to see the folders sorted and the bookmarks inside each folder sorted, automatically so I never have to manually. In other words, behave like Windows File Explorer.

I'm almost certain I had it working that way on a previous installation of FireFox, but I can't get this new installation of Firefox to do the same.
