Hey y'all, I just closed Firefox and tried to open in up again a few minutes later. The icon in my taskbar threw an error saying it couldn't find the executable. I typed Firefox into the run dialog and FF came up but has no icons on the home screen, zeroed out my bookmarks bar below the URL field and deleted all my bookmarks (100s).

I went into the User/../../Mozilla folder system and found a folder called bookmarksBackup or something similar. It was completely empty.

Any chance these were saved somewhere else as well?

126.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows

Thanks

I'm setting up a user on a new computer. I've exported her bookmarks from her old computer. On the new computer I go to Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > (select bookmarks toolbar) > Import and Backup > Import bookmarks from HTML. I browse to my folder containing the bookmarks.html file, Open it, and nothing.

I've tried all the suggestions I can find. Places Database Verify Integrity gives me: > Task: checkIntegrity + The places.sqlite database is sane + The favicons.sqlite database is sane > Task: checkCoherence + The database is coherent etc. Opening the bookmarks.html file shows a list of bookmarks. That file is not empty.

This shouldn't be this hard. How do I accomplish this?

Is there a way to delete a bookmark from the book-mark drop-down window (accessed from triple horizontal bar/right side of browser) but retain the same book-mark that had been saved in a folder created in Other Bookmarks? I discovered that when you delete a book-mark entry from drop down menu, the same entry is also deleted from its saved location in Other Book Marks. I was trying to reduce number of unsorted entries in drop down menu while saving (and retaining) the same link in the Other Bookmarks section and folder. I want to continue using the sorting and discrete folder saving possible with the Other Bookmark section but clean up the clutter in the unsorted bookmark section.

  1. 1) I Followed the instructions and exported my Firefox bookmarks in HTMLformat from a Windows 10 laptop and saved the file on a thumb drive.
  2. 2) I had installed Firefox on a new Windows 11 laptop.
  3. 3) I followed the instructions and tried to imported the HTML file from the thumb drive into the newly installed Firefox on the new Windows 11 laptop.
  4. 4) I got the message "file is empty" when I pressed open so the import did not work as advertised. I looked at the HTML file on the thumb drive and all my bookmarks were there, so the file was not empty.
  5. 5) What do I do to get the newly installed Firefox on my Windows 11 laptop to read/recognized the HTML file I created and to successfully import my bookmarks?????

Thank You for any help you can give. JKH

A few months ago, an automatic feature in bookmarks quit working. It used to be that when you bookmarked a page you would be prompted about what bookmarks folder you wanted to put it in. That suddenly quit working. Now, after you bookmark a page, you have to go into "Manage Bookmarks" then move it to the folder you want. I can't find a setting that would bring that back. Was this a change that was deliberately made in an update or is it just a glitch that happened somewhere along the line? If that feature was removed, I'd like to know why. It doesn't make sense.

Dear Firefox support,

I am writing to inquiry about bookmarks. I have hundreds of bookmarks, if not thousands with many folders, which I have saved over the last decade. I have always synced my account and it should all be there upon downloading a new firefox on my new computer. However, the HTML file that it is asking me to upload from is not a file I am able to find in by backups, time machine, or anywhere else. It is also not in my account after I sign in. I have spent nearly 10 hours trying to figure this out. I have read all your articles and went through the steps of about:profiles. ALL my bookmarks should have been synced and saved. I have firefox in my Time-machine backup also. But none of the library files populates the bookmarks.

It would be a huge harm to my research career if I am unable to restore my bookmarks. I have trusted and used Firefox for a long time. Please assist me in obtaining these bookmarks in my browser.

Best,

When I go to recent bookmarks list in firefox and select one, firefox is vectored off to paydaydeals.com I have right click the bookmark and looked at the bookmark details and they look fine. I have check add-ons and extensions none are listed as installed. How is firefox being vectored off to this site? See screen shots. I have scanned with Malwarebytes latest version and Eset online scanner no bugs found.

How can I fix this?

I recently installed windows on a new solid state hard drive, and did a fresh install of firefox, but I forgot to manually backup my bookmarks. The old install is still on the old windows hard drive, is there a way for me to move them onto the new install? I'd prefer to not have to rebuild the whole list from scratch!

A few days ago, my Windows laptop was attacked by Trojan virus. Windows Defender totally disabled the laptop, and I could not even press a key. I had hard disk destroyed and the laptop, too. Because I intended to buy a Mac in a few months anyway. I attempted FF download twice, no luck. I think the M1 chip may not be silicon chip that FF supports.

Do you know a way to get my BOOKMARKS so I can export to Safari? Does FF keep them?

I have a backup of all my documents and I included bookmarks in that, on a removable hard drive USB3.0 The MAC doesn't have a slot for 3.0. Will require having to buy something from Apple to accommodate it.

Hate to do that if it's a fool's errand. I appreciate your advice. Senior citizen in over her head.

This button was one of my favorite things about the Firefox internal PDF viewer. It allowed me to quickly save a bookmark of where I am in a .pdf file. I went back and figured out this seems to have been removed in v106.0 when they added an edit feature.

Is there anywhere else in the application to save the bookmark to your exact location in a .pdf file?

Or is there a way to return this button to the application?

I attached a screenshot of the button.

Greetings

When I enter the first few digits of "amazon" the first suggestion is always "amazon.com". That would be nice were it not for the fact that, as a European, I don't have that much use for prices in dollars and imperial measurements. I have bookmarked "amazon.de" but due to alphabetical order .com always comes first. Naturally, I have tried to purge "amazon.com" from my bookmarks but I have been unable to find anything that I could delete. Thus, I am wondering whether anyone might know how this issue might be tackled and I would be much obliged if anyone could help.

Best Regards Felix
