Folders in my bookmarks do not save

Hello everyone, So I have a problem when I create a folder in my bookmark bar. I create a folder by category (unnamed for aesthetics). Once I have classified my favorites in these different folders after reopening Firefox, all my favorites are in a single folder. I specify that all these favorites were mostly imported from Chrome but that the problem persists with favorites added from firefox

It almost sounds that you inspect the bookmarks in a smart folder like recently bookmarked and not as the real folder structure.

How/where are you inspecting the bookmarks ?

Do you see these folders when you open the bookmarks sidebar (Command + B) or in the Bookmarks Manager (Library; Show All Bookmarks) ?

If you have sync, and there is a problem anywhere, Shut Down Sync Immediately On All Devices to prevent the problem from spreading. Once the problem is fixed, perform the same repair on all computers/profiles before using sync again.


[v57+] Places Maintenance is built into Firefox.

Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.

You will find Places Database near the bottom. Press the Verify Integrity button.

When done, copy and post the results here.

Hello, thank you for your answer!

I just checked and I create a folder in my "personal bar". I'll try to put all my favorites in my Mozilla firefox and then add them in my "personal bar".
