I used to have my bookmark button (the one where, when clicked, drops all my bookmarks). this button being there allowed me to just drag a tab into it so bookmark it as well as drag the tab into any folders within the bookmarks to simply put a mark there. but the recent update erased this from my bookmark toolbar. i had it on the left most position but it's no longer there and i can't drag any tabs into it anymore as i have to go into the firefox button for bookmarks. how do i bring this back? i unclicked the auto update due to this issue. please help.

On the morning of October 1st, 2016 I was trying to move April's webhistory into September's Webhistory by tricking my computer into thinking it was still September 30th, so that I wouldn't have to randomly search through the massive category of "older than 6 months" eventually Firefox refused to continue loading pages or even access older pages on my tabhistory. I restarted my computer & allowed an update to Firefox to activate, however when I reactivated Firefox it took a lot longer to load than normal, only for it to show a crash message after about 1 minute each time I tried to start it, safe mode & restarting my PC made no difference.

    Eventually I had the insane idea to copy all of my firefox information onto a flashdrive then completely refresh it on my main computer, however even then there was no difference. In frustration I decided to start using the vastly inferior browser known as internet explorer, I looked into Mozilla support using it. I got this computer in late July 2013, & was extremely careful with it, there were no virus threats or anything on this computer & I'm still using Windows 8.
    This is my most recent crash Crash ID: bp-c995142e-114e-4ae4-a013-4dd1a2161003
    This is probably the oldest Firefox restart crash in the chain Crash ID: bp-f9bd6bcf-f99b-4276-9ac3-e790f2161001

Hopefully this information helps some.

Hello Everyone.

I had a list of bookmarks displayed under 'Bookmark Toolbars.' I clicked on the 'Bookmark' icon, saved it in the Bookmark Toolbar, and it was available in 'list' form.

However, I added another bookmark to the 'list' and somehow every bookmark was displayed as tabs under the URL.

I deleted all of the tabs, not realizing that would delete the Bookmark Toolbar list as well.

How was a tab added and how do I turn that setting off?

I just want to add Bookmark Toolbar in drop-down list format.

Since my laptop, running Windows 7, updated today to Version 55, I have lost all my bookmarks. Trying to restore them using "import and back up" has not worked. I can see various dates of previous back ups, but when I try to restore I always get the "Unable to process the backup file" message. Also, and maybe more concerning, I can now not get Firefox to actually brows. Once I type a URL into either a new tab or my homepage and press enter, not happens at all. The only site Firefox will now access is my homepage, which is a Hotmail account. Prior to the update, I had not changed any settings and the only add-on I was running was an ad block I have used for some time. I have disabled the add block ad on, and I have reinstalled Firefox to try and resolve the problems with no success.

When I invoke Bookmarks/Show All Bookmarks/Import and Backup/backup... in Firefox 60.0.1, nothing seems to happen. I cannot find any file named bookmarks-yyyy-mm-dd.json (I didn't change the default file name but of course I had to select a directory) anywhere on my computer. Am I doing something stupid?

Last time I did this was 2017-12-20 -- no problems backing up and restoring bookmarks then -- but that was with an older version of Firefox (obviously). FYI I'm running the 64bit version on a 64bit Windows 7 SP1 system. -- jclarkw

Hello. In my bookmarks library I have a lot of folders organized in a tree with multiple branches themselves organized in hierarchic levels. Sometimes I don't find the bookmark I want to use by browsing my tree, probably because I didn't put it in the right location in the tree. I can find it by the "Search bookmarks" function but this function doesn't provide the bookmark location in the tree (and I don't see any other way to locate it). Thus I can't correct the bookmark location error in the tree.

Is there a way to locate a bookmark in library folders tree ?

Regards. j-p

I don't know but i am uncertain of the tagging in Firefox. Have the Firefox team changed the tagging in later revisions of Firefox?

Back in FF 4 i think i made som tags on a certain adress (in this case www.tranceadict.com) which in turn created a virtual folder called Tranceaddict.


When looking in the tags of the bookmarks in that folder i don't see any tags applied at all. So i wonder how i could create such a virtual folder before but not now?

Thanks!

Firefox was working great until recent updates of version 39.

I have now lost my ability to bookmark a page. When I click the star icon as I always had, the star turns bright blue and gives the appearance that the bookmark is being transferred--or "thrown into" -- the bookmark icon. But the page never appears anywhere in my bookmarks.

Before when I clicked the star, I always got a box that would let me edit the name I wanted for the bookmark name, and the different bookmark menu locations that I could choose from as to where I wanted the bookmark to go. Now I don't get any box.

I know this has to be a result of the recent update changes and not something in my computer because I never had that simulation of "throwing" the bookmark before. Or the bright blue star.

I hate it how I have to first click on the "View history, saved bookmarks, and more" button in the top right, and then mouse over to bookmarks on the menu, and then click on bookmarks just to access them. Is there any way to set up a shortcut to the main bookmark menu? I went into customize and placed the "Bookmark Menu" button to on, but that only shows bookmark options on one click, not all my bookmarks.

My eyesight is limited. Unfortunately, I am unable to determine where in the toolbar of the library window the button for exporting bookmarks to an html file can be found. The attached image provides an idea of what I am looking at.

IMAGE: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-05-18-05-49-03-6c245b.png

The reason I am looking in the toolbar of the library window is the Firefox documentation for version 76 on a mac corresponds to the Firefox version I have and the computer I am running it on states:

From the toolbar on the Library window, click BUTTON ICON (PLEASE REFER TO ATTACHED SKETCH) Import and Backup and choose Export Bookmarks to HTML...

I looked across the toolbar, then the entire Window marked "Library". I wrote a program to search the Library window for an image that could conceivably be the button indicated in the documentation. Sadly, the results of these efforts is I am here requesting assistance. It is not that I do not love each and every one of you, but my preference is not to have to take the time for putting together a question to post here. It does not take long, but when we live at internet speed, every microsecond counts, I know you agree with this very important principle, particularly in light of the visit currently taking place where Covid and his entourage have all of us ridiculously locked up. We have flattened the curve and also found out the numbers Fauci and Birx showed the President to justify this lockdown have been proven, not correct, more like wildly wrong. So while we wait for the lockdown to be cancelled, my preference due to how my parents raised me is to be able to find the button described in the documentaiton, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, button not there... unless maybe you can see it and I am missing it.. My hopes is you will refer to the image at this link in order to enhance the likelihood of success in my quest of the moment, i.e., making my quesiton understandable to anyone who might be interested or/and able to persist in pointing out the location of the great button of the bookmark export.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-05-18-05-49-03-6c245b.png


Any assistance you can provide would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

I lost all my bookmarks when my computer crashed. I thought they would have been on my backup drive, but they were not. Some people say export to a htlm file, then put in documents, then when you backup, they will be there. 'Then I have heard about backing them up to a json file. i tried that and it wouldn't open up from my desktop. So i don't know what to do. I cannot afford to lose them again. I am slowly building them back up, but had a lot of medical sites on there. What is the best way and safest way. I have windows 8. Thanks.

When I try to view the Properties of any of my Bookmarks, the box is far too wide. This is extremely irritating as I have to drag it over to the left in order to exit, save or cancel. This problem suddenly occurred several days ago for no rhyme or reason. Any solutions?
