The icon that represents each website is not displayed for most of my toolbar bookmarks. See image. You will notice that I've highlighted Neoserra, which is the only icon displayed. Everything else only displays a globe. How do I get them to display the correct icon?

For my copy of Firefox, the bookmarks menu repeats itself as sub-folders ad infinitum: "Show All Bookmarks>All Bookmarks/Bookmarks Menu... /All Bookmarks/Bookmarks Menu... /All Bookmarks/Bookmarks Menu...." Each sub-level contains all the bookmarks of its parent level. Deletion of a "Bookmarks Menu" sub-folder results in deletion of corresponding parent folders and their contents.

I have a new MacBook and have restored most info from my old MacBook via Time Machine, but not Firefox. I downloaded a fresh copy of Firefox. I would like to get the (many many) bookmarks that I had on my old MacBook. I have a Time Machine backup from that computer. However, I can't find the Firefox bookmarks. Per the instructions below, in my Time Machine backup I looked in Library > Application Support, but found no FIREFOX folder there. Can anyone tell me where to find my profile > bookmarks?

Thank you!

Finding your profile without opening Firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data

   Click the Finder icon in the dock. On the menu bar, click the Go menu, hold down the option or alt key and select Library. A window will open containing your Library folder.
   Open the Application Support folder, then open the Firefox folder, and then the Profiles folder.
   Your profile folder is within this folder. If you only have one profile, its folder would have "default" in the name.

Hello,

I have for now a work flow where I share my bookmarks between different firefox profiles, without any acces to web/net/cloud/whatever..., all is local to my computer. This works well with an old firefox version. But, because there is a but. I'm blocked in this situation. My firefox version is 60.9.0esr. I can't go higher because starting with firefox version 62, there where changes that prevent concurrent access to sqlite databases.

I did some search in addons to try to find an alternative, without success. I also already done a research in previous support questions, without success too.

So, maybe someone have an idea or suggestion, to help me achieve that, or something similar, with newer firefox version. I need to upgrade to something more up to date.

Thanks in advance, K.

Win 7 Pro, 64-bit, FF 81.0.2, 32-bit.

It appears that FF will not permit me to enter a duplicate bookmark. However, there are times when I would like the same bookmark to appear in more that one location. Is there a way to do this?

Hi there, I reset my computer to the factory settings and I thought that my google account will hold all my saved bookmarks, that I need only to sign in and find them again in the bookmark manager. I can't find them anymore and there is no backup file as the comp was restored. Is it possible to get them back somehow? Some of them were quite important. Thank you very much.

How can I restore or get back a folder in my bookmarks that had ALOT of favorite sites in it? I was in my bookmarks and accidentally deleted a ENTIRE folder of bookmarks (probably 100 saved websites). I dont remember when the last time I did a BACKUP of my favorites folder and I think that I added websites to the folder just within the past week. How can I get them back? There is no "Recycle bin-type thing to restore from. HELP!
