CentOS Linux finally upgraded FF 68esr to FF 82esr. Of course this had to break something. For years I have had a bookmark to "about:config?filter=signon.rememberSignoabout:config?filter=signon.rememberSignons" This allowed me to easily toggle on or off the prompt for my master password when I browsed a site for which I had stored credentials. This bookmark no longer works. It takes me to the generic about:config page but does not fill in the setting which I am looking for. Is there a way to fix this?

I used to have some sort of addon or other feature which allowed me to only unlock my saved credentials when I wanted to logon to a site. When that broke or went away I found the about:config setting and created a bookmark to it. Being prompted to unlock my stored credentials every time I hit a site for which I have credentials is very annoying. Leaving my credentials file unlocked is a security concern.

Any advice would be appreciated.

TIA,

Ken

Hi, everyone, I'm pretty new around here. I installed Savefrom.net helper and it installed an addon and a bookmark in my browser. Then I uninstalled it from my PC and uninstalled the addon. But the bookmark is still there. Everytime I close and reopen Firefox it is stays there and it's pretty annoying tbh. I tried starting in Safe Mode and two antivirus programs (Malwarbyte and Avast). No help. What can I do?

I want to add a bookmark to a URL on my android home page. I found an answer on this site stating that I had to choose page on the menu from the page I want to bookmark. but there is non such option in the menu. On another post I found that it was possible from the bookmark screen, but on this screen the context menu of each entry only contains edit, copy, share, open .. end delete, but no option to add to home.

so how ?

In English: I got Firefox 83.0 - the update took place a few hours ago. Now I noticed that all the folders in my "Symbolleiste" (symbol bar?) in the third row of my Firefox window are empty! The folder names are still there as before the update, but with no contents any more. Please fix this massive mistake. I don't want to loose all my Bookmarks in the symbol bar due to this update! In German: Ich habe Firefox 83.0 - der letzte Update erfolgte for wenigen Stunden. Nun stelle ich fest, dass die Inhalte der Ordner in meiner Symbolleiste leer sind: Die Ordner in der Symbolleiste bestehen zwar noch wie vor dem Update, aber die Ordner sind leer. Bitte korrigieren Sie diesen massiven Fehler. Ich will nicht durch den Firefox-Update alle meine Bookmarks in den Symbolleisten verlieren!

I posted this problem back when v.80.0 was out. It was later fixed, but now it's back.

Loading an external bookmark as the default start page in v.83.0 and using it as the default bookmark (file:///C:/Mine/Testing/BOOKMARK.HTM) creates an error.

The error is that clicking on any url in the bookmark to visit and then clicking the top left arrow to return will always bring you to the top of the bookmark. It used to bring you back to the same location on the bookmark. Now, it brings you back to the top of the bookmark. Thus making it necessary to scroll back down to the location (url) you just visited. Really annoying to have to keep do this in order to return to your original location in the bookmark.

Hope someone can help again.

Since refreshing Firefox, my bookmarks have disappeard from the bookmarks toolbar, there's nothing there. But Bookmarks are correctly selected in 'view', and also in 'configure', and the list of all bookmarks shows my usual bookmarks located in the toolbar section. I have no idea what to do about this.

I have a bookmark on my bookmark toolbar, that when I open the bookmark has no highlighted star to allow me to choose to remove it. I open the entire bookmark list and it doesn't even show in the bookmarks list. How can I delete this off my bookmark toolbar? It's like it doesn't exist but it's front and center showing up. It does work and go to a valid web page. But I don't want it on the toolbar. And can't find a way to get rid of it. I've cleared cache, restarted, updated, etc. Nothing works.

Hi. I recently reinstalled Windows 10, and so, reinstalled Firefox. I had a HTML bookmark file which I had exported from my Firefox before. It is a 3MB file containing over 200 bookmarks organized into folders. When I import it, nothing happens! Only about 10 of the bookmarks (last added bookmarks I guess) are added to the bookmarks menu. So there is two major problems: 1. I want all of my bookmarks imported. 2. I want them in the "folders" the way I categorized them before, NOT just a few links scattered in the bookmarks menu! that's absolutely useless.

This will be a huge time-consuming task to add and organize 200 bookmarks again manually. If Firefox can't solve this, I will definitely migrate to Chrome.
