I just updated to windows 10, before I did I backed up my files on my firefox bookmark account. I went to to the restore thing, I saw all my stuff for a moment but after accepting the restore I can't get it to show. I still have my one Restore March, 31st option with 11 items appearing but nothing happens.

I deleted a folder of bookmarks that all had tags on them, but when I open the library to delete the tags associated with them, nothing happens when I click delete. Is there a step I'm missing?

Thank you.

I would like to add the Firefox homepage to my favorites list, but when I am on the page (get to it by clicking on the "home" button to the left of the address bar), the "star" button in the address bar is not there (usually would click on that to mark the page I am on to be bookmarked). The address bar does not show an address, so I can not add it manually. What is that address, or are there any suggestions about how I might get this done? Thank you from Linda.

Hopefully there is enough info in the title about what I'm hoping someone can answer,

But if there isn't then here are the ssteps to observe the "problem"

1. Tap on the "hamburger" menu 2. Tap on the "Library" menu 3. Tap on the "Bookmarks" menu 4. Observe the bookmarks listed under the section "Recently Bookmarked"

Advice for previous Firefox versions suggested right clicking on the Library to get a context menu that allowed you to uncheck "Recently Bookmarked" Other advice suggested hacking "About:Config" to set the key "browser.bookmarks.showRecentlyBookmarked" to "False" is now defunct because the key no longer exists, and recreating the key in Firefox 80 doesn't appear to have an effect.

So, how do I clear the "Recently Bookmarked" foder, or turn it off?

Many thanks

Completo la pregunta anterior. He intentado, por un lado, recuperar los marcadores del perfil y me ha sido imposible. Importarlos de Chrome también me ayudaría, pero me ha resultado imposible. Sigo los procesos indicados por ustedes, a través de Catálogo, llego al final del proceso, doy a "Finalizar", pero nada sucede. Indudablemente, Chrome estaba cerrado.

When I first downloaded and installed Firefox the other day, the initial screen showed a process to import bookmarks from other browsers. I followed the process and imported bookmarks from Safari, but apparently not successful. I only see Mozilla Firefox bookmarks. I tried again from File tab but in vain... (using iMac (10.15.6))

It's rather frustrating that simple and basic functions not working from the very start... (keyboard shortcuts to control video streaming are not working either)

Can someone enlighten me as to what may be the issue?

Thank you.

Hi, I just refreshed Firefox on this site https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings because my browser was getting slower and recommended that to me with a little Pop-Up at the bottom of my screen. I first read through the whole page and it clearly says that I will not lose my booksmarks, but exactly that happened. I already read through most support articles, but they all mention a second profile in about:profiles but there is just one. The bookmark folder is empty in this profile. Does anyone know how I can get them back? Thanks

Why won't my multirow bookmarks toolbar display all of the bookmarks in it? No matter what editing I've done to the userChrome.css file in my profile, the toolbar is either 2 or 3 rows and simply refuses to populate the 3d row to any extent - and it should be about 5 rows long. Here is the .css file:

  1. PersonalToolbar{
 --multirow-bmb-n-rows: 5; /* Control how many rows are shown before scrolling */
 --multirow-bmb-row-margin: 4px; /* Control how much spacing is between rows */
 max-height: none !important;

}

  1. PlacesToolbar > hbox{
 display: block;
 width: 100vw;

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems{
 display: flex;
 flex-wrap: wrap;
 /* --uc-bm-padding is defined in autohide_bookmarks_toolbar.css */
 max-height: calc(var(--multirow-bmb-n-rows) * (4px + 1em + (2 * (var(--multirow-bmb-row-margin) + var(--uc-bm-padding,2px))))) !important;
 overflow-y:auto;
 scrollbar-color: var(--lwt-accent-color) var(--toolbar-bgcolor) ;
 scrollbar-width: thin;

}

This should be doable. Can someone please help me fix this? Thanks.
