With very vague help from your Support answers, I figured this out on my own and had to comment because all too many times your experts forget they are not always dealing with techs on answering these questions. For me this is what worked when I tried to alphabetize my bookmarks: Open LIbrary, show all Bookmarks (bottom of the list of bookmarks), click on Views and select Sort.

Show me how to find the bookmark manager

I've seen this question from two years ago, but the answer is not valid (any more).

I had several machines with different purposes and when I got a Firefox account, I signed them all in. Now the bookmarks are chaotic, and I want to combine them in a more rational way. I need a real manager that allows me to do this. I'm sure there is one, but I cannot find it.

Currently FF 77.0.1, according to help.

I need to use special characters in my bookmark entries (in the sidebar), for url entries and also, if possible, for the folders containing them. When I rightclick to get "Properties", there is no field "Font" or similar, so how/where would I change the font, and what default font is used there, to begin with?

My second question would then be how use another font for some entries, instead of the default one, or more precisely, how to combine two fonts within the same entry (bookmark or bookmark folder, if possible, too), in order to get, within the regular text of the entry, some special characters which are not included within the default font.

If such combination of two fonts for the same entry is not possible, I should at least know what the default font is, and where FF stores it, in order to put special characters from within another, special font into that default font.

Thank you!

Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.

Sincerely, AM

The most recent Windows update had a window that popped up unprompted about the new Microsoft Edge. I tried to get out of it, because I am not interested in using Microsoft Edge. There was no "cancel" or red "X" button. "Close window" on the taskbar did nothing. So it seemed like I had to proceed in order to get this thing off my screen.

It asked whether I wanted to transfer all my info from Firefox over to Microsoft Edge, I said no, and now my Firefox bookmarks have vanished.

I was unable to do the "Restore" process from this link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-bookmarks-from-backup-or-move-them#w_restoring-from-backups

I cannot find a directory called "windows.old" to do the "Restoring bookmarks after upgrading or downgrading Windows 10" process

I haven't synced my bookmarks anywhere else so that isn't a restore option.
