When asked to REFRESH Firefox and I did, the definition of refresh did not mean remove all my bookmarks. Evidently it did to Firefox people. NOW my accumulated bookmarks over the past 5 years or so are ALL GONE. Is there a way to get them back? You do not believe how mad I am right now.

Hello. I can't find my bookmarks after update 76. I followed the directions, and I ouldn't find anything. I searched my computer and all my drives for json files and 'bookmarks', and I found backups from 2001, 2013, and I know I have backups 'older' than those on discs, but the ones missing (so far) are the most important and complete ones from the past 7 years. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but update 76 'seems' to necessitate syncing devices. I only have reason to browse on my desktop, so I didn't plan on syncing it with anything. I 'do' have a smartphone, but other than downloading malwarebytes and one other app, that I need, that's the extent of my 'online' activities on the phone. However, since I couldn't find my bookmarks without doing so, I decided to download Firefox onto my phone and try to sync them up. When I signed up for the Firefox account earlier, I changed my password with a password generator. However, my phone doesn't have all the characters on its keyboard that are in my password. You can customize the keyboard, but it looked like a magnificent pain to do so. Instead, it seemed easier to 'dumb down' my password from 40 characters down to around the minimum, at least until I got them synced. However, I tried twice with typing visible on the phone and it said the password was wrong, so instead of trying a third time, and getting locked out of Firefox - I came here to see if anyone could help me. I know that rebooting often corrects a lot of things, but since I don't have these bookmarks backed up anywhere - I was afraid this might be a case where it may make the bookmarks more difficult or impossible to retrieve. Thanks in advance.

The bookmarks bar works fine for the standard visible part, but the arrows button (check out the pic attached) to open the rest of the bookmarks contained in the list, is not working, doesn't open the rest of the list at all.

Thank you Marino

Bookmark manager is quite good - the manual organization is simple, but I'm confused in same case over and over...

I'm pretty sure, I have some bookmarks already saved to somewhere. But I have a lot of bookmarks. And yes, I can search for some bookmark - the manager find them - I can click and all is running, but - where is the bookmark hidden ? In which folder ? Next time I want to go to bookmarks menu and select that bookmark directly... Not calling BM again and again...

This simple information is missing in searched bookmark, when clicked on them once.

It shows: - name - address - tags - keywords

BUT NOT WHERE IT IS... (?) The folder where it stays...

Do You think it is not important ? For Me sure...

Or I have overlooked something ? Maybe ?

Thank You.

I have constructed a smart bookmark using places query places query like: place:queryType=0&sort=8&domain=mydomain.com

The full URL is something like: https://mydomain.com?model=product&id=282

Now I want to further restrict the results by filtering out certain HTTP GET Parameter values. for example:

  • I want to leave out URLs having model as a parameter in the URL
  • I want to include URLs having 'product' as a value for parameter model

I looked at the documentation and could find anything related to GET parameters. Is this possible?

Since a recent Firefox update, Firefox has alpha-sorted my bookmarks automatically and I cannot turn this new feature off - this is annoying!

I want to custom organise the order of my bookmarks - NOT by alpha-sorting.

The 'sort by name' menu option does not have a counter option - ie 'DO NOT sort bookmarks'

So how do I turn off book mark sorting ???

I have noticed that the favicons on a website are not being created when I bookmark a new site or when I use a previous bookmark, they are not updating.

They are showing as a world globe when first created.

They used to always work so I can only assume that one of the Firefox updates has stopped this working so can someone provide any information to help get this fixed?

Thanks.

Hello Community

Do hope someone can help?

Have tried all suggestions in Support area on topic: Lost/Recover Bookmarks. Also spoke to Windows Support and was told to call Mozilla Firefox Technical Support. I've been unable to find a number.

I had a Windows update around the same time as a Firefox update, May/June, only realised all saved bookmarks prior to June 2020 have disappeared. This has never happened before.

Urgently need to find out if there's a method of retrievel or have it confirmed that all of these very important bookmarks are permanently lost.

Thank you in advance

Hi:

I located the following instructions for sorting bookmarks: "Click Bookmarks and then click the Show All Bookmarks bar at the bottom. Right-clickHold down the Ctrl key while you click on the folder you want to sort, then select Sort By Name. The bookmarks in that folder will be sorted alphabetically.".

I followed them, got to sort but nothing happened regardless how many times I tried. Is this supposed to work on an Apple?

Thanks.
