Whenever I bookmarked a web page, it always went to the bottom of the "Other Bookmarks" window, not the main window (I do have bookmarked pages in the "Other Bookmark" window as well). Not a big deal, I could move it to the main window if I wanted to. At least I always knew where it went.

But now when I save a bookmark, it's going into a folder that I created at the bottom of the "Other Bookamarks" window (the folder is at the very bottom, last in the list).

So I moved a bookmark under the folder, just to see if I added another bookmark if it would go under this this bookmark, figuring it should. Well it didn't. When I created a bookmark, it went into the folder, even though it's not last on the list.

So how does this work? Where do newly created bookmarks go? What's the default? Can it be changed? I don't want to have to go searching for a bookmark every time I create one.

(I'm creating booksmarks by clicking the star next to the field with the web address.)

Thanks.

I am using the most recent version of Firefox on a MacBook Pro Late 2013 using Mac OS Sierra, and am getting ready to export my bookmarks so that I can do a clean install. I have wasted hours on this to no avail. I export...and when I look for the file it is nowhere to be found. I tried exporting it to several disks and it simply does not disappear. This has never been a problem before, and it is discouraging me from returning to Firefox. How absolutely devilishly frustrating. Can anyone help? Thank you!

After changing the battery in my Macbook Air all of my bookmarks in Firefox have disappeared (both from the toolbar and the bookmark files) and my preferences have been reset.

I have checked about:profiles and can see only one. I have tried to restore (the only option I was given was yesterday's date - 11 items) but nothing happened.

I have an Old Firefox data folder on my desktop (dated 2020).

I did a time machine backup yesterday if that is of any use.

This problem is limited to Firefox (Safari has not been affected).

Many thanks in advance for your help

Retrieving bookmarks from a Windows Image File of a machine I no longer have

Copying Firefox Bookmarks

I had a Windows 10 machine on which the motherboard died. I had the machine fully backed up in a WindowsImage file.

Then I bought a new machine of a different make that came with the same version of Windows 10 Professional as I had on my old machine. Unfortunately, the restore program will not restore the file to my new machine. So to retrieve my many useful Firefox bookmarks I opened a VHD (mounting the file onto a virtual drive) and attempted to copy the bookmarks across to the proper directory in the new machine.

My understanding is that they are kept in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

Overwriting everything in the new Profiles directory with everything in the Profile directory from my old machine does not work, and I cannot work out what to copy and where to copy it to as the directory structure and the folders it contains are very different on the two machines.

Does anybody know of a utility out there that will help me? All suggestions gratefully received.

Thank you,

NM

Two questions re: the forced update from 78.15 to 91.

1: Will all bookmarks, and all other settings be retained? Is there a form of recommended backup in case of problems (I currently use MozBackup, still)

2: Will the "Bookmark Tab Here" add-on work with 91? I need a user friendly bookmarking system, which was the reason I stayed with ESR in the first place.

The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.

Hi, In these last days, I deleted a bookmark folder or something by error. Then I found some daily backups, and I restored from the last one backup.

The next issue was that the following daily backups have less bookmarks, and doing some testing, it appears the Daily backups, now, are not including "Other Bookmarks".

It has less entries from now on.

I want to know if there is a bug, or something changed by itself. How can I fix that?

Thanks
