Hello, I upgraded my windows 8.1 system with firefox on it to windows 10. The windows 10 upgrade saved my windows 8.1 files. I installed firefox on windows 10. I deleted the files created by the install in the folder 'profiles'. When I copy my old firefox profile contents into that firefox profile folder, firefox does not pickup my bookmarks and extensions as I had hoped. Is it possible to get firefox to recognize my old profile contents? Thanks, Doug

The Bookmark menu used to open with ONE click. Now it assumes you're using the same bookmark, and if you want a different one, you have to click twice. I have many bookmark categories, and I usually have to click twice to get to the menu to choose a folder/location.

I looked for but couldn't find an OPTION for it to work as it used to, open with one click. I'm disappointed that I couldn't find this option. I hope the option to return to the way it used to work will be available in the next Firefox update.

Hello,

Since recently the bookmark dialog has changed its behaviour, and to worse from my perspective. If I don't do anything for about three seconds, the dialog closes and the bookmark is saved to a place where I most likely don't want it to be saved. Is there a way to get rid of the three second time limit? Thanks!

It's not necessary to read further to answer my question. Bellow I'm going to give some criticism and express frustration about this new feature (or is it a bug?). The criticism is not directed towards the nice people here who give support to users who have problems.

I understand that developers get new ideas and want to put them into practice, but if you change an often used behaviour like this, I don't think it's user friendly to just change the behaviour without asking the user if he want's that behaviour. Personally I don't see how the automatically disappearing dialog helps me (it's very easy to click Esc if I change my mind about bookmarking a page), but I keep experiencing how it makes my browsing experience worse, as I often pause for a moment for example to think what name I'm going to give for the bookmark, or where am I going to place it.

In practice this change has wasted at least an hour of my time (to find an explanation and (in vain) a solution to fix the behaviour), made me annoyed, and based on the comments here and other places, made quite a few other people annoyed too.

Please, when you change the behaviour of Firefox in the future, before changing the behaviour for an individual user, ask him first if he even wants the change. For example show him a dialog where he is told that "we have this new feature where your familiar dialog keeps disappearing every three seconds for no reason so that you get the pleasure of invoking it again...and again...and again. If you want to have that feature, check the box on the left".

An automatic update of Firefox which resulted in a "quit/create new profile" choice has removed all my bookmarks

Of the four profiles stored in "about:profile" three are identical (ie. have only the default bookmarks stored) and one, generates a "quit/create new profile" message.

The "bookmarksbackup" folder (in /home/user/.Mozilla/Firefox/zs1jki8t.default) is empty.

The "import/backup" option (in Manage Bookmarks) offers nothing to choose. There is no 'list of dated automatic backups.'

Firefox did not create an "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop.

Browser privacy "strict". "Never remember history" was selected.

Help.

Hi,

We use a cloud-based ERP system. To access it, we use a bookmark for users to get to the initial login screen in Firefox. There has been a change in the login screen that will require us to use a different URL. We have about 75 PCs with many having multiple user profiles for Firefox that need the new URL.

I know how to quickly copy and paste the bookmark by remoting into a PC and then doing a copy/paste from the bookmarks toolbar on my PC to the bookmark toolbar on the remote PC.

I could also create a procedure for users to create their own bookmark but I think some users would find that a challenge.

I'd like to make this process more of a silent install but haven't figured out how to manage it.

We're currently all Windows 10 Pro using Firefox v101.0.1 64-bit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

When I use Microsoft Edge Browser in the top row it shows my Bookmarks and to the left it also shows an icon that allows you to jump back to the Edge Browser.

In Mozilla Firefox there is no icon to take you back to the Firefox browser. Occasionally a site will Hi-Jack you and trying to use the back arrow to get back to the Browser does not work. The only solution is to shut down the Firefox browser and then restart it again.

I would rather use Firefox as it support HTML 5 audio which is not supported in Microsoft Edge.

Can you please advise.

Many thanks

When I add a new bookmarks I can see them in "Recent labels", but not in "Other bookmarks" (the last one in that folder is of the 20th of February 2022), so I can see only my last 10 saved bookmarks from the 02/20/2022 since now. The bookmarks are surely saved, because if I try to delete one fromt the "Recent labels" another one less recent appears, but only in the "Recent labels" folder and not in the "Other bookmarks". So, what I have to do to see my saved bookmarks not present in the "Other bookmarks" folder, but not so recent to be visible in the "Recent labels"? Thank you!

Been using Firefox for long time on a Win10 machine. Motherboard failed. Saved the C drive. Question is how to move bookmarks (profile files ?) from the old C drive to the new Win11 computer? I tried moving the profiles over from the old C drive to the new computer but Firefox would not recognize them and shutdown. Restored the Win11 files and Firefox is again happy.

My situation is: I got a new/used PC with fresh install Win11 and SSD's. On old PC, win7, I used Firefox and saved my bookmarks as "restore" I guess (not HTML) to my D drive. Firefox was installed on old C HDD drive.

I have added old HDD to new PC case and want to copy/move/import my Firefox bookmarks to use in new Edge browser. I found my old saved bookmarks (on D drive HDD) as a JSON file. Edge can import only HTML bookmark files. What do I do?

I've spent 5-6 hours searching web but cannot find any solution.

Can't get Firefox to use ported profile files; how to use Synch

I have tried numerous times to copy over the contents of my Firefox default profile folder from a Windows 10 PC to a new Windows 11 PC. I followed all the instructions as far as I know (when either saving or pasting the folder contents, Firefox is off; successfully downloaded and installed Firefox on new PC creating a new default profile which is where I pasted the contents from previous PC's profile, etc.) When Firefox is restarted on the new PC, it is just the same as the new installation -- no bookmarks from the old profile show up, e.g.).

Any ideas for how to get this to work are greatly appreciated. I have a lot of bookmarks and need to be able to access them on new PC. (BTW, this approach worked just fine when I installed a new disk drive on the old PC about 5 years ago and brought all the Firefox profile data over - everything came over as expected. I wouldn't think the fact that this is a Windows 10 to Windows 11 porting has anything to do with it not working -- these are just profile folders.)

Would Synching the two PCs work better? Does Synch just add all the profile and password data on the two PCs together so that each ends up with the total of what was on the two individual PCs and nothing on either is lost? When I looked at Synch on new PC, it was not clear how to get it to point to the old PC - Add a New Device just seemed to point to a phone. Again, any help is much appreciated.
