when I create a new firefox bookmarks folder it has to chevron arrow to the left and can't be opened. It seems possible to add a new bookmark inside the new folder but its useless because the folder cannot be opened/contnts cannot be seen

in the screenshot below the top folder "gigs" has no chevron and cant be opened. "gear" and "music" are normal and fully functional.

I have 2 macs, experiencing this on both

I need to do the simplest thing. I see a web page I want to get back to later. I bookmark it. Later today or tomorrow or whatever I try to find it. And that is borderline impossible. It's not something I categorize or file away in well defined folders for future reference. I just want to read it later. It it's go e, lost in no particular order in a cast list of bookmarks. All I want is to find these fairly recent bookmarks, read, and delete. Is that simplest of actions not possible?

Some time back, I had made a bookmark for a list of books. I cannot find it now on my list of bookmarks. (I have MANY bookmarks.) I'd like to search using the search term "book*.*" How would I do this? If this not a feasible way to find my lost bookmark, is there another way that might work?

Thank you for reading and for any suggestions.

Managing bookmarks is confusing, so is Firefox Help

When I try to manage bookmarks, I get a confusing hierarchy of bookmark folders that shows the same folder in multiple places, and I can't open it to see the subfolders. It totally confuses me. Naturally, I tried Firefox Help.

When I go to Firefox Help, I don't know how to enter search strings to narrow searches. Anything I enter gets me hundreds of topics, including strings attempting to find out how to narrow searches. Encasing strings in quotes does nothing.

Right now, I need help managing bookmarks. For the future, I need to know how to use Firefox Help correctly. Thanks.

I received the error message that Firefox could not open because it was already running, but this did not show on the task manager. I googled the issue and stumbled upon a solution where people had deleted their profile in order to solve it. So I did, and Firefox worked again, but all of my passwords, bookmarks and everything was lost. Is it possible to recover this?

I am using a Mac.

Mind you, I am super bad at technicalities and would probably need explanations as if I am five years old.

Is there any way or an add-on that will allow me to add a simple button to my toolbar that with ONE CLICK triggers the "Show All Bookmarks" command which will open the separate Library window with the list of my bookmarks?

Firefox used to have a Bookmarks button for over a decade since about version 2.7 that disappeared several versions ago and I still find myself missing it. I do no not want to click more than once, dig through some menu or drop down to open it. I don't want to use the keyboard either. I know Firefox has a Library button, but it makes you navigate menus too.

I want a simple ONE CLICK solution.

The following is a screenshot of my Firefox browser. Included is a BULLSHIT "Other Bookmarks" tab that has displaced existing custom bookmarks. This is >NOT< helpful. I want this crap gone, and control of my toolbar returned to ME. How do I remove this tab from the toolbar? And don't tell me it's an upgrade to the browsing experience. If I wanted to group items with a shortcut on the toolbar I would have done so. Note that I already have two groups on the toolbar. I know what I'm about. Give my back my toolbar with the custom bookmarks that >I< require.

I used to have Roomy Bookmark App instaled and Im still missing it :( Is there a way to reduce bookmark size to favicons and see the name of it when I hover over it? And not having to fix it after each update? I love Firefox but this one thing is really to improve because I have so many bookmarks its hard to expand the list of it everytime.

Since the latest update, "Other Bookmarks" has taken up residence where I cannot remove it, so having never seen the folder before I decided to check it. Almost nothing in there is bookmarks. Near every page saved to the "Other Bookmarks" folder is a seemingly random page from my history (deleted and not) up to within a recent few months, which it then becomes my actual primary bookmarks (which I'll have to move, great to know my bookmarks started getting saved to a different folder). Is this meant to serve as an invasive ~highlights from your history~ a la your homepage thumbnails when none are pinned? Or is it some kind of absolutely wacky error with it trying to stuff my history into bookmarks? I'll emphasize just so it's not mistaken, up until the last few pages, every single page saved in "Other Bookmarks" is a random page from my history in chronological order, they are NOT bookmarked and have no reason to be. What causes this and why is this even a thing?
