I had an arrow on the right side of my FF Toolbar for "Other Bookmarks". Recently it went missing. I have many bookmarks under that heading, and can get to them through the Bookmarks Manager, but no arrow on the Toolbar. How can I get it back?

This has happened a few times before after a Firefox update, but the most recent occurrence was after the update to version 117.0.1. My mouse wheel will not scroll in the bookmarks drop down menu, I have to use the up and down arrows in the drop down menu which is very slow. When the scroll wheel did work in the past, I could be scrolling and then move the cursor to the up or down arrows and scroll even faster still using the scroll wheel and get to the folder I want a lot quicker. The scroll wheel works normally while scrolling through webpages, the only place it doesn't scroll is the bookmarks drop down menu. I'm running Firefox version 117.0.1 (64 bit) on a Windows 10 notebook PC. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

I recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox on my Mac and successfully imported all data, bookmarks etc. However I cannot figure out how to ADD a new bookmark to an existing folder. Every page I read about bookmarking fails to show how this is done. In Chrome its simple since the drop down menu allows the user to view every folder, but in Firefox I don't see how to do this. Furthermore, when I go to Bookmarks>Manage bookmarks I don't see any of my folders..PLEASE show me an EASY way to do this. Thank you

Exported a bookmarks html file from Mac (Sonoma OS) and tried to import it in a computer running Zorin (linux) 17. The file can be found, but when I click it, I am told there are no bookmarks therein. If I open the HTML file it's all there. Full of bookmarks. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for reading.

I imported my bookmarks from a windows 8.1 computer to Parrot Linux Debian desktop (2 different computers). I am missing the everything from 'Other Bookmarks' after I imported it into the Linux computer, I can see all everything from 'Bookmarks Menu' though. The windows machine is not working anymore. But I have a saved copy of all the bookmarks from the windows 8.1 computer.

Is there a reason my import left out the Other Bookmarks but imported the Bookmarks Menu? How do get them into the linux firefox browser.

Firefox 78.15.0 oesr Linux Parrot home edition OS version 4.11

Thanks in advance

I'm using a new PC with Windows 11 and find that I, inadvertently close Firefox with 16-20 open tabs. Most of the time when I reopen FF, the tabs are still there, as expected. Sometimes, the browser opens with just a new home page and the pinned and other tabs have closed. I can sometimes see the 16ish tabs in history and reopen them. More recently, I find that they are not in history as a number of tabs so I have to set them up again. This rarely happened on my old PC and if it did I would have bookmarked a group of open tabs that I used regularly.

The failsafe FF General setting is as follows: Startup, Open previous windows and tabs.

I don't know how I can stop losing my open Tabs but if I was able to bookmark all the open tabs to be used in case of a problem I would feel more secure.

How do I bookmark ALL or several my open tabs?

I know this is an ongoing issue but it seems like nobody has mentioned it in a while so I figured I would stir it up again. I am fed up with the bookmark double spacing and having to scroll down all of the time.

If nothing else I would think that the Firefox team owes all of its loyal users an explanation as to why they don't seem to want to fix this probem.

Thanks my rant for this year :)

When I want to drag and drop a tab into a folder of the bookmark toolbars, I can't do it for some folders.

Specifically, it doesn't work for folders that are somewhat in the area of the tab preview animation that pops up when I start dragging the tab. So that is not the same folders every time, it depends on the tab location in the tab bar.

I hope that the explanation was clear enough, I did a screen record also, made it available here https://ufile.io/pikit6xo (335 kB).

Do someone had a similar issue and found a solution?

I'm in troubleshooting mode. Firefox 100, just updated, but bug was there before. Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Despite i selected "always show" in the options of the menu toolbar, as indicated in many answers and guides, Mozilla keeps randomly to show or not to show (most of the times) my bookmarks in the top bar. The bookmarks are still there if i press on top on bookmarks in fact they appear, simply they are not anymore in the bar. I have reset several times to default from the options but it doesnt change anything. Any clue? Thank you

The designers seem to be intent on making this as painful as possible. You'd think you could just open them, at least in text form. Wasn't that possible before? I can in Notepad if I want to look at hundreds of pages of gibberish that would take days to copy and paste over. In my updated Firefox it offers a Restore function but to do that I have to wipe out all my existing Bookmarks. Who dreams of this stuff? Why would anyone sane want to do that?

When you use Google's Translator, this application automatically adds a link to Firefox's history each time you modify even a tiny bit of what you are translating.

This means that sometimes, you can add 1,000 links within a day when you incrementally translate a piece of text, what is the default way to do.

Today, two minutes of that work generated 40 links!

Example of a typical link:

https://translate.google.com/?hl=de&sl=de&tl=en&text=Manchmal%20ist%20es%20wichtiger%2C%20etwas%20zu%20schenken%2C%20als%20wie%20es%20beim%20Adressaten%20ankommt&op=translate

And that was only a small piece of text!

In my history, there are in between 50,000 of these, despite regularly deleting many of them.

Even on a relatively fast notebook, deleting 1,000 links in the history takes minutes.

I posted the problem to Google Translate as a feedback many times, but they never answered.

Is there a possibility within Firefox to selectively get rid of this permanent garbage?

That would be wonderful.

Prior to today, occasionally I would need to restore from a Time Machine backup the files "places.sqlite", "places.sqlite-shm", and "places.sqlite-wal" into my default profile, because I would lose my bookmarks & history.

However, beginning this morning, that procedure did not work. Every time I open up Firefox, the "places.sqlite" file would corrupt immediately and no attempt at restoring (from any backup date/time) would fix the issue.

I am running Mac OS 11.7.2 (Big Sur) and Firefox 111.0.

This is VERY frustrating, because I rely heavily on my bookmarks and passwords.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

For some reason my Bookmark Tool Bar no longer displays anything. It is a blank strip across the top of the screen. However all of my bookmarks can be displayed on the right or left side of the screen in a vertical format. I can not find a way to repopulate the original Bookmark Tool Bar and find the current display very awkward give the number of bookmarks I have on file. Is this a result of an intentional upgrade or software failure?

This morning (first thing!) I had a cat partially lay and the keyboard, with my bookmarks "History" open, and, before I could remove her, she pressed the Delete key on the numeric keypad and deleted several bookmarks in rapid succession. After a few seconds of debate with myself, I elected to use the "Restore" feature under "Import and Backup" and restore the previous day's bookmarks.

There's a little detail, though. For whatever reason, the majority of my bookmarks (all the *current* ones) are under "Other Bookmarks", which I assumed was of no matter. However, after the restoration was complete, I noticed that while all bookmarks under "Bookmarks Menu" were restored, the "Other Bookmarks" folder was empty. In actual effect, ALL my bookmarks are missing!

I followed advice posted at the Mozilla support forum (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1355129) and used a tool (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1355129#answer-1453428) to view the contents of my previous day's JSON backup file, and it *does* indeed contain references to the last pages visited that day. However, after doing a backup with that particular compressed JSON file, the contents of the folder "Other Bookmarks" was NOT regenerated, and it's NOT in the restored "Bookmarks Menu" folder either (only old stuff). And I've just noticed that my "Bookmarks Toolbar" (which contained numerous entries) was not restored either.

I need some guidance at this point. The compressed JSON backup file evidently contains the backed up data (including, I assume, the "Bookmarks Toolbar" data). I can't restore it.
