Good day, everyone

Lost bookmarks during changing hdd for a friend of mine. Didn't backed up bookmarks and, unfortunately, he didn't sync his profile. At least we set another ssd, I wiped affected drive before installation. So, I've managed to recover data from Firefox profile, but when I tried to recover bookmarks and bookmarks backups, firefox stated, that that it's unsupported file. From both places.sqlite and .jsonlz4 backups. I've dived deeper and here's what I tried reading similar problems: -Checked via SQLite Manager firefox extenshion -Installed SeaMonkey browser -Tried to restore hdd using different software: Recuva and recoverit (this managed to restore folders structure) -Other weird solutions which didn't help as well

If some of you have plenty of time to check it and convert to HTML- here're files i've worked with. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ukBrhubcLCK2_0B5lwsHmVkyQRsJhmQt?usp=sharing

P.s. last solution I thought about: restore the whole disk with operating system and profile, but I doubt that it'll work. Thank you in advance!

So I had a crazy number of bookmarks, many duplicates. I did a major cleanup of dupes. I now see about 20 "other Bookmarks" folders in my MENU. I tried consolidating them, moving their order in the list, deleting, etc. The act like a ghost in the machine.

Lots of strange behavior: If I drag to reposition, it makes a duplicate, they multiply on their own....

I use my sessions and wonder if it somehow related. I don't want an others bookmarks showing up in my list, I'm grouping via folders according to what i want to see, and other bookmarks ain't it. Especially unruly multiples of such. All I have found was how to hide on the bookmarks toolbar, which I do not like, nor use.

Thank You Kevin

My bookmark creation is broken. I'm using Ubuntu, also cleared the cache, uninstalled/reinstalled. My existing bookmarks are still there. "Bookmark This Page" in the search bar does not work. Troubleshoot had the same broken bookmark prob.

The Home page row of shortcuts are all blank.

Another weird thing is FF doesn't show up in my apps. I just added another FF, which had the same problem and deleted it.

There should be an option to permanently delete specific dates (all bookmarks associated with a specific date) from the list of dates under the "restore bookmarks" option. I want to get rid of the bookmarks associated with several dates, but there is no way to do this unless I can delete the date (or dates) from the list.Otherwise, I cannot delete the objectionable bookmarks associated with those dates. Why not include a delete option when selecting a specific date? Firefox version 92.0.

Hi, the backup files listed on the Restore menu are complete snapshots of your bookmarks for that date, and not limited to the new ones added on those dates. Do you want to physically delete the full backups from disk?

If you want to view/delete your current bookmarks added during a certain period, here are the steps for that:

Sorting Bookmarks by Date Added

First, make sure you have the Added column in your Library window (called up by Manage Bookmarks). To add a new column to the display, right-click any existing column heading and check the column on the little drop-down list.

Next, if you aren't sure which folder the bookmarks are in you can do a general search in the upper right corner (entering http will match most bookmark URLs).

Then click the Added column heading to sort by that column. This should group together the bookmarks added on a particular date so you can review and delete the ones you don't want.

Does that work on your Firefox?

No because I do not have an "Added" column on the Library window called up by "Manage Bookmarks." YES I would like to "Physically delete (permanently get rid of) "the full backups from the disc." I have yet to see a "delete" tab anywhere in this version of Firefox (92.0). I would gladly revert to an earlier version if it eliminated the current "restore bookmarks" list. How do I do it?

I'm using Firefox version 92.0 (64 bit) on an HP 350 G1 notebook running Windows 10.

It seemed that it was after the 92.0 (64 bit) update that I cannot open bookmarks that are PDFs. The correct URL is present, but nothing loads, it's just a blank black page. I have tried turning off the add-ons and refreshing the page, closing and reopening Firefox with the add-ons manually turned off, restarting Firefox with the add-ons disabled, and restarting in safe mode. All of the attempts were performed without any positive results.

I can copy the URL on Firefox and paste it in Edge, and it opens the correct page. I installed Chrome against my better judgment and pasted the URL, and the correct page opens again. I can copy the URL in either Edge or Chrome, paste it on Firefox, and the same results occur as if I clicked on the link in my bookmarks on Firefox. I can click on the bookmark from either the home page or a page that's already opened, and nothing happens. The URL doesn't change on the existing page, and on the home page, "Search with DuckDuckGo or enter address" in the UL space does not change to the URL that I'm trying to open. Is there something I'm missing?

This is one of the URLs that I am trying to open if you want to try it yourself on Firefox: https://www.att.com/idpassets/images/support/wireless/Devices-Working-on-ATT-Network.pdf

I only ever use Edge when I'm having an issue with Firefox, (usually it's when I'm trying to log on to an account or something and I can't, then I realize that it may be one of my add-ons preventing it. I then disable them one by one until I'm able to achieve what I want.

I don't want to have to switch back and forth between Firefox and Edge just to view three PDFs, so if someone knows what could be the resolution to this, I would appreciate it greatly.

Is it possible to have folders with a lot of bookmarks displayed in multiple columns, instead of the scroll arrow?

Side question, is it possible to reduce bookmark list item thickness? I like the redesign, but the bookmarks are super thick, would much prefer the old, thin ones.

Hi there! Since FF 91 all menu items have an incredible vertical spacing, the menu item is twice as high as before. This is a nuisance especially in the bookmark menus. I would like to have the narrow menu item spacing back, without being urged to install an AddOn or to learn CSS programming or to file a bug in this peculiar BugZilla system. Think of our family of USERS, not developers.

Yes, I understand the circumstances of free software. Yes, I see it is necessary to keep up with modern UI design and the so-called technical progress. The FF 91 UI changes slightly towards what we expect to get in Windows 11. Fine! Also, it is absolutely clear that the new menu line spacing adds more comfort to the FF usability ... on tablet PCs and smart phones. But NOT for desktop users.

As far as I know, Microsofts plans for Windows 11 still include a setting to keep the old narrow menu item height. Mozilla should do so, too. I hope the developers will take care to not lose contact to their users.

I have modified userChrome.css with

#editBMPanel_folderMenuList {
  /* Specify icon to override basic folder   */
  list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/places/bookmarksToolbar.svg") !important; 
  /* list-style-image: url("file:///E:/FireFox%20ESR/App/Firefox64/browser/bookmarksToolbar.svg")  */
}
 /*  One line fix   This colours all bookmarks  Blue */ 
 .bookmark-item[container], treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container) { fill: #3336ff !important; }

/* Make Shop folder Red */
toolbarbutton.bookmark-item[label="Shop"] > .toolbarbutton-icon {   fill:   #e74c3c   !important; }

This colors all the bookmarks blue and changes the 'Shop' folder to red

I went into the omni.ja file and extracted bookmarksToolbar.svg and saved it in the above directory. When I change the url to the file: and comment out Chrome: then it loads the svg file but doesn't color it. It stays gray. What is the difference?

thanks Norbert

For anyone who wishes to reduce horizontal spacing between bookmark icons in the horizontal Bookmarks Toolbar across the top of Firefox window (under the address bar), here is the code to add to userChrome.css:

/* Bookmarks Toolbar icon horizontal spacing */

toolbarbutton.bookmark-item:not(.subviewbutton) {

   padding: var(--bookmark-block-padding) 3px !important;

}

The default value is 4px. I changed it to 3px. You can change this number as you like.

Remember to save the css file, close and then re-open the browser to view the update.

There is also a way to play with this live if you access the Browser Toolbox: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Browser_Toolbox and access userChrome.css: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Style_Editor

Hope this saves someone the hours I spent finding this solution. Cheers!

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.

Hiya, I use bookmarks to keep a track of music I plan to listen to, and I had set up my folders so I could see everything in a subfolder on my screen. Now the font size or something changed and I can't see everything all at once on my screen. I don't have the time or energy right now to even think about trying to reorganise it all. Is there a way I can lower the font size or something to get back the space I lost?

Update - 16th Sept - Problem is back again with the latest firefox update
