A folder in Bookmarks disappeared AGAIN! This is ridiculous. Every now and then Firefox loses a Bookmark folder. To make matters worse, I can waste a lot of time trying to find it and get no where. I have better things to do than trying to find lost Bookmark folders! How can I easily find the very important Bookmark folder quickly? Undo does not help.

Hi,

Now when i click the address bar at the top I'm met with a Blank Screen whereas before the update I had my Top Sites "pinned" for quick & easy access. I now have to faff around going into the bookmarks which is pointless when this feature was working perfectly well, why remove it?

Also when i start Firefox fresh i see small icons for the top sites but they're so small the URL/Name doesn't show up so i have no idea which icons lead to which sites. These need to be bigger like post update and put back line they were before.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. This update is a massive fail, please revert ASAP.

Hello dear Nerds

With the last update the Bookmarks have a wide distance when listed. Too wide! I have to scroll down endlessly to find things. Before they were neatly narrow and you could see twice as much. Kindly repair this next time please. Or can I do this? Best Ursula Zürich

Some sites are missing favicons making the toolbar useless if I have to use text to identify them. I quit using FF because of this about a year ago as all the solutions on here did not work. Seems as though FF could fix this internally as it is not a problem on Chrome, IE, Edge or any other browser I have used. Why can't FF fix what seems to be very simple problem? Came back and it is still a problem. Again all the listed fixes that I have to initiate, have not worked. Why can't FF fix this through an update. I am not the only one who has this issue and it is exclusively a FF problem. Not a computer expert but this seems to be a VERY easy fix via updates especially since it has been an issue for literally years. Don't want to go back to Chrome as I like all that FF stands for, but... Thanks for reading

Hi I have version 86.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 2004. My issues is that there is supposed to be a right click menu option to remove the new Other Bookmarks folder form the bookmarks toolbar but I do not have that option.

My username on reddit is tharmalzombie and I asked that and the community provided a few things to try sadly no solution provided worked.

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/m1srn2/how_do_i_remove_other_bookmarks_folder_from/

Another thing I tried not mentioned in the reddit post was to restart firefox in safe mode with addons disabled this did not help either.

I am not the only one with this issue as another user commented with same problem so there must be others.

Thanks for the reply.

Hi, I have lost the "file, edit, history, bookmark ect" I have tried to resolve this myself but all the help on the forum starts with click on the "3 vertical bars" I do not have this option, all I have is 3 dots which directs to "settings" which offers no help for the bookmark toolbar ? I have trolled the FF help pages but they all say the same thing to start with the "3 bar" icon. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've been using FF for 9yrs and have had no problems at all. Thankyou in advance.

Despite i selected "always show" in the options of the menu toolbar, as indicated in many answers and guides, Mozilla keeps randomly to show or not to show (most of the times) my bookmarks in the top bar. The bookmarks are still there if i press on top on bookmarks in fact they appear, simply they are not anymore in the bar. I have reset several times to default from the options but it doesnt change anything. Any clue? Thank you

As of today, I am unable to save a bookmark to my choice of location. I searched to see if by chance it landed somewhere I didn't want it to, but it is no where to be found despite the bookmark indicated that it had been saved to my location choice. I have restarted and cleared all cookies and cache. Still a problem.

Is there anyway to restore the format (compactness) of the Bookmark Menus without setting the Automatic Updates to not automatically update and then downloading the 88.0.1 version? I hate to not have the Automatic Updates, for obvious reasons, but don't want to use the double space of the Bookmarks even more.

Hi all,

A few days ago my phone got stolen and with that thousands of Firefox bookmarks.

IF I hadn't had a tablet with which I sync those bookmarks that is, so all is good. But...

I'm planning to get rid of that very tablet and then won't have an other device to sync with any longer. I think that means that if my phone gets stolen next time I have to say goodbye to all Firefox bookmarks as well. But since society is more and more turning into single device use with smartphones becoming so powerful, is there really no way to deal with this? Can Firefox really be the last company on Earth without the ability to back up settings and bookmarks in the cloud? I mean, I'm getting crazy that every single app has it's own cloud backup, but that's still a LOT better than not having the possibility at all - especially for a security/privacy minded company like Mozilla that's... well... crazy...

My question to avoid total failure next time: Is there ANY way I can have those bookmarks exported and/or automatically backed up? Or can I somehow sync them with a non-existing device and then sync back a week later when I have a new phone?

I'm truly struggling with this one as I don't want to part with Firefox after 1.5 decades. However, in the end my bookmarks are more important to me than my browser, so if I HAVE to move on to stay secure then I'm afraid I will have to go that road... :-(

Your help is much appreciated!

I use the bookmark bar very heavily and my workflow was to just "drag" the tab with the mouse to folder in the bookmark bar, which would unfold and I drop the tab/bookmark in the desired sub-folder.

This worked really well for me, and was fast.

Recently, this stopped working. I can still drop a bookmark in one of the main folders in the bookmark bar. But not in any sub-folder, since the main folder closes as soon as I move the mouse inside it. It is also not possible anymore to move the already-saved bookmarks around via drag&drop.

For some reason my Bookmark Tool Bar no longer displays anything. It is a blank strip across the top of the screen. However all of my bookmarks can be displayed on the right or left side of the screen in a vertical format. I can not find a way to repopulate the original Bookmark Tool Bar and find the current display very awkward give the number of bookmarks I have on file. Is this a result of an intentional upgrade or software failure?

With Firefox 91.0 update, the DREADED double-spacing of bookmarks is back--despite the volumes of complaints when it occurred with previous update(s). At least then, the fix to toggle off the "proton.contextmenus" code worked (as shown below)** NOW IT DOES NOT. With 50 million once dedicated users abandoning FIREFOX, why is this happening? How do we fix it NOW? (and no, I have no intention of becoming a secondary programmer every two weeks to fix these upgrades--nor I think will many others) Firefox Support, where are you?


    • Temporary Fix

For testing purposes, the developers left a preference in Firefox 89 to switch between new style and old style menus:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the preference to switch between true (new style) and false (old style)

I just installed FF v96.0.0 and immediately noted that the background is back to being black or dark themed again for this HORRIBLE PROTON UI.... I have been using Firefox since v2 or was it v4 so long time...

Mozilla I am tired of these terrible UI changes you keep making and it needs to stop... please at least add some user config options so we can at least disable the ugly proton UI features..! as the about:config proton UI options don't work right... anymore..
