I have a bookmarks menu link on the bookmarks toolbar. When I save a new bookmark to one of the folders it does not appear. It does appear when I click on the saved history icon. However, if I open the bookmarks sidebar from the history icon and navigate to the same folder, the new bookmark appears but it is missing many other bookmarks that are in the other folder.. I can also save the bookmark to the toolbar and it appears there. Also I can cut an paste the bookmark from the toolbar to the folder. I've tried disabling add-ons and that doesn't fix the problem. There clearly are two sets of bookmarks. How do point Firefox to the one I want?

Hello everyone!

I've been having problem with duplicating bookmarks ever since I started using Firefox a few months ago.

1) The browser does not notify me when I'm saving bookmark(s) I already have, (then forget days later).

    Previous browsers I've used have the same issues.

2) When I change a bookmark's folder (for organizational purposes), it retains the book mark in both places.

    I have duplicated the process many times, and it has, on the blue remove button, the number of
   duplicates (ie: 2 bookmarks).


I have tried the following:

1) Perusing Help/Community forums which don't seem to address the issue specifically, such as pointing to

    sync settings (which don't apply to me, as i only have one device).

2) Trying various extensions that only seem to apply to earlier versions of Firefox (based on forum dates).

The question I have is:

Why isn't this something that is embedded into the browser itself instead of relying on extensions that may work, but have glitches unto themselves? It seems like a pretty easy bit of coding (based on people I know who are pretty savvy).

Here are my system specs:

HP ENVY Windows 10 Home 10.0.19041 Build 19041 (64 Bit) Firefox Version 78.0.2 (64-Bit)

Thanks in advance for your time & assistance!

I have my bookmarks sorted into folders and I want to search a specific folder. I went to Bookmarks>Show All Bookmarks and I selected the folder I want, which happens to be Quilting. I know I have a bookmark for a quilt with pine trees so I put tree in the Search Bookmarks box and I get every bookmark with the word tree. Not just bookmarks in Quilting but in every folder. Can you search just a specific folder?

This afternoon I came in and my computer was off unexpectedly. After restarting, firefox looked odd and I noticed all my settings and bookmarks have all disappeared. I tried "restoring" them, but it says "unable to process backup file" and nothing changes. It doesn't matter what day i select, it will not restore. Something just isn't right with it. Seems its a new firefox sync thing that wasn't there before. Thanks

'Most used' Bookmarks gone from address bar since update 78.0.1 (64-bit)

Hi, Since the latest update, I'm no longer able to see the most used bookmarked sites from my address bar. When I now click on the open space of the bar I get a dropdown of saved sites but not the most used ones like I used too. This has happened in a previous update too and because I cannot find a fix solution, I'm forced to make a post.

I've tried going into tools>options>home>privacy & security but ticking and unticking of boxes has been unsuccessful. Any help would be gratefully received.

Hello,

I am running FF 78.0.1 on W10. I had to upgrade to a new laptop from W7 but also running FF.

On my other computer I had a star button that had rounded tips that was located just to the left of the bookmark star. The rounded tip star simply performed the two step action of clicking the bookmark star and then clicking Remove Bookmark, but all with one click.

After moving to this new setup I miss this feature. I have searched this site and the internet and found no references as to how to add a button that performs the actions.

Does anyone have an idea on how to get a button like this with these features?

Thanks in advance for your help!

  • How can I get the new arrangement to be displayed in the "Recently Bookmarked" window?

or

  • Can I delete the "Recently Bookmarked" window so the manually-rearranged bookmarks in the Library window are displayed in the "Recently Bookmarked" window?

A couple of months back, and entire bookmark folder suddenly disappeared. I assumed that I had inadvertently done something to cause this, though it had never happened before. Today, not only is another folder gone missing, several others have as well. I am using Windows 10 Pro, Version 1909, Build 18363.900. I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome for security issues, but unless I can figure out what is happening here, I am going to switch back. Any ideas?

Hi, When I turned on my computer this morning, my bookmarks were not there. I've tried the steps laid out by Firefox, but no success. I tried another browser, Safari, which I seldom use, and Safari bookmarks were still there. I have many different bookmarks in Firefox so I'd rather not switch over to Safari unless absolutely necessary. Nothing else is missing, so I doubt if I've been hacked. I did check a bank account, which was fine. I'm not a high profile person, so I doubt if I've been targeted. And I see the pic of the lock closed in the URL bar constantly. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I'm on Mac OS 10.15.5 (Catalina) Firefox 78.0.1 (64bit) Thanks, JJ
