I have a new computer. I downloaded Mozilla, we t to the internet, and saved a url in "unsorted bookmarks". I then imported my bookmarks from my other computer. They also show in a version of "unsorted", but it appears to be a different unsorted library. They seem to be in two different locations, both labeled "unsorted".

What is going on?

Strange new problem w. firefox. Click on "bookmark this page."

My subject folders/names appear EXCEPT that the top one has a lined box next to the folder icon and instead of the actual folder name, it has another name (in this case, "video" which is the name of one of my already existing folders).

With the box & the name inside of it, it looks as if it is a blank box waiting for me to enter a name, but it's already got "video" written in for me.

In any case, as I use the slider to scroll down thru my bookmarks, the name "video" follows along, overlaying each of the existing folder name in turn.

In other words, if my first bookmarks folder is titled "audio," when I go to bookmark my page, the word "video" appears in place of "audio." As I scroll down, "video" moves as well and appears instead of each successive folder name.

If I park the current page in one of those folders...say, "music" (even though "video" appears in place of "music)" and then access my bookmarks from the upper toolbar, scroll down to the folder where I parked my page ("music," in this example), there it is....in the folder with the correct name..."music."

Once that's done and I want to go to the site again via my bookmark, I simply go to the original folder ("music") and there it is. No moving "video" in sight.

Bookmarks disappeared, tried various suggested fixes, none worked. Unless I can repair this, I will not longer use Firefox.

I have tried to use the restore function to get the bookmarks back, but I get the reply "unable to process the backup file." I've tried several backups, but get the same message every time. I tried to delete the "places.sqlite" file as instructed by some, but this did nothing to restore my bookmarks. I cannot open the places.sqlite file, either. It may be set for "read only," but I did nothing to set it that way. But there is no way to tell, since I cannot open the file. What I need to do is be able to restore all my bookmarks in Firefox and I need precise instructions on how to do that. As I said, the methods I listed above didn't work at all. I am using Firefox version 55.0.3 64-bit edition in windows 10. Any help would be appreciated. But if I cannot restore the bookmarks, I'm afraid this will be the end of my long relationship with Firefox, since I would have to consider it extremely unstable if this cannot be corrected.

The new FF DevEdition theme has a thinner bookmarks bar when in Normal density. The old bookmarks bar thickness is only on the Touch density setting. Is there a way like through about:config that I can have the "normal" density with the old thickness bookmarks bar?

I am using: Firefox Developer Edition 57.0b1 (64-bit) on Aurora update channel

P.S. There is a glitch where you can do this, but you have to do it for each open window. I want a permanent solution. The glitch: Go to Customize, add Flexible Space before Bookmarks Toolbar Items, switch to another tab and come back, remove Flexible Space, and exit Customize. Another glitch is by restoring the window, then maximizing it.

Using firefox developer edition, aurora update channel, 60.0b2 (64-bit), macOS 10.13.3. The functionality of the bookmarks sidebar has changed recently: command-clicking folders in the side bar used to be a shortcut to "open all in tabs" for that folder. Now command-clicking selects that folder for multiple selection. Additionally the new behaviour is inconsistent with command-clicking a leaf node, which opens that specific bookmark in a new tab.

The old behaviour was incredibly useful for having categories of folders to open while still being able to select specific bookmarks. I think the new behaviour would be much better for this use case if you could multiple select a combination of folders and bookmarks, and additionally if after multiple selection there was an option for "open all in tabs". Currently having multiple folders selected does not have this option. Was the change intended? Is the only alternative (outside of enabling bookmarks toolbar) individually clicking bookmarks?

I have: 1) bookmarks within FF desktop 2) FF within my VM running and 3) FF on Android 4) my Firefox-account open (on Desktop and VM)

and would like to have bookmarks synchronized.

This is supposed to be easy, but it seems not to be working. I blame myself, probably I am doing something wrong.

Desktop FF: I clear all bookmarks and import a set of bookmarks the way I want it. Okay, fine. Bookmarks on desktop is fine now.

Switch to VM a just installed Firefox... I check the bookmarks and see a whooole lot of links and stuff that probably is from ancient times. I clear those, as I want the bookmarks from desktop. So... the bookmarks from my desktop are gone.

If I start with a clean bookmark list on both FF desktop and VM and import the 'set of bookmarks' that I want into FF desktop, they might be cleared again due to FF in VM has no bookmarks...?

Reason for my question: what is synchronizing with what?

Thanks.

At least since updating to v.49, whenever I add a bookmark to a folder or sub-folder, I get a duplicate in unsorted bookmarks. The duplicate entry cannot be deleted (delete option is grayed out). Deleting the entry in the folder/sub-folder deletes both entries. Recreating the bookmark in the folder/sub-folder just recreates the duplicates.

Solutions on Mozilla support involve deleting control files, modifying the registry, removing firefox, re-installing, etc. l-- sorry going through something like that is not why I have a firefox browser. Is there a simple solution to this problem? Is the firefox community working on preventing these duplicates in future releases? Is there at least a workaround?

BTW: I don't think this is a Sync problem. The machine I sync with is powered down 90% of the time.
