[Locked as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1353550. Please follow up there, thanks.]

I have problems in some favicon of bookmarks. (Wrong favicon) How can i reload favicon of a specific bookmark? There is an extension for this job : [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../|CheckMarks] But this extension has no option to reload favicon of bookmarks individually for force firefox to reload favicon of a specific bookmark! Please give me a solution on this. In some years ago there was an extension with name favicon reloader. It was ok. But does not exist anymore.

After reinstalling Firefox (to new 64-bit version), I've lost all of my favicons. I'm seeing that only way to get them back is to individually select each bookmark. Is there a way to get the bookmarks to go and automatically download their favicons so my bookmarks will be repopulated again?

Tried to reply to your email. It has not return. Here is a copy of report you requested. It is different from what you sent me.

> Task: invalidateCaches - Unable to invalidate caches > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I still have no bookmarks. I have restarted the computer a number of times. I also renamed the places.sqlite adding a 1 after places as it said in other directions. I have also refreshed.

Yesterday, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled after receipt of your response. It said all cookies, history, bookmarks etc transferred successfully. However, I keep getting the message “ and Bookmarks and history systems will not be functional because one of Firefox’s file is in use by another application. Some security software can cause the problem. I use McAfee, I’ve always used it. I have not changed it.

I did not do anything with favicon file as I don’t know what to do, I understand you can delete that. If there is a list of more than one, then what do I do.

As I indicated, I an NOT a technical person.

Please advise.

Thanks.

Hi, the backup files listed on the Restore menu are complete snapshots of your bookmarks for that date, and not limited to the new ones added on those dates. Do you want to physically delete the full backups from disk?

If you want to view/delete your current bookmarks added during a certain period, here are the steps for that:

Sorting Bookmarks by Date Added

First, make sure you have the Added column in your Library window (called up by Manage Bookmarks). To add a new column to the display, right-click any existing column heading and check the column on the little drop-down list.

Next, if you aren't sure which folder the bookmarks are in you can do a general search in the upper right corner (entering http will match most bookmark URLs).

Then click the Added column heading to sort by that column. This should group together the bookmarks added on a particular date so you can review and delete the ones you don't want.

Does that work on your Firefox?

No because I do not have an "Added" column on the Library window called up by "Manage Bookmarks." YES I would like to "Physically delete (permanently get rid of) "the full backups from the disc." I have yet to see a "delete" tab anywhere in this version of Firefox (92.0). I would gladly revert to an earlier version if it eliminated the current "restore bookmarks" list. How do I do it?

For anyone who wishes to reduce horizontal spacing between bookmark icons in the horizontal Bookmarks Toolbar across the top of Firefox window (under the address bar), here is the code to add to userChrome.css:

/* Bookmarks Toolbar icon horizontal spacing */

toolbarbutton.bookmark-item:not(.subviewbutton) {

   padding: var(--bookmark-block-padding) 3px !important;

}

The default value is 4px. I changed it to 3px. You can change this number as you like.

Remember to save the css file, close and then re-open the browser to view the update.

There is also a way to play with this live if you access the Browser Toolbox: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Browser_Toolbox and access userChrome.css: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Style_Editor

Hope this saves someone the hours I spent finding this solution. Cheers!

Not sure why the bookmarks was changed to double spaced, but I do not like it at all. Please post a work around to make the bookmarks single spaced. I was able to change how they are spaced in the bookmarks bar, but not the rest of the bookmarks that are at the top of the page under the favorites icon.

Hallo,

nach einer Neuinstallation des Betriebssystems kann ich leider meine Exportdatei von einem externen Speichermedium nicht mehr in den neu installierten firefox importieren. Die Datei wird nicht automatisch erkannt. Erst wenn ich den Dateinamen in das entsprechende Feld hineinschreibe (siehe Bild), erscheint die Datei. Wenn ich die dann öffnen will, passiert nichts.

Was kann ich tun, um meine alte Lesezeichen-Bibliothek wieder zu bekommen?

Danke für die Unterstützung Alexander

The latest version has been loaded onto my PC. The list of bookmarks, in the drop down menu, has increased in the spacing between the lines. Now my bookmarks list goes off the bottom of the screen, whereas before my bookmarks were all visible. Is there a simple way of reducing the gap between the lines, the font size is OK.

I just got a MISERABLE updated Firefox that increased the spacing in my bookmarks menu so it is essentially UNUSABLE with double or triple spacing requiring scrolling till one's arm falls off! Why is it us poor peons out here who just want to use our computers and the internet, and the Firefox they've used FOR YEARS, have to be subject to arbitrary UNNECESSARY changes made by some "developer", possible trying to justify his/her existence and/or is stir crazy in lockdown? win10 bookmarks on the right. FIX IT! And stop screwing up WHAT WAS WORKABLE! I'm not a "nerd" able to just manipulate stuff...I want MY FIREFOX BACK!

When I open firefox, I click on "bookmarks". This opens "desktop bookmarks". When I click on that, it opens 3 others: Bookmark menu Bookmark toolbar Other bookmarks If I click on "bookmark toolbar", it opens "bookmarks". After all of this, I click on bookmarks and it FINALLY opens my bookmark list. Why do I have to go through so many links just to open my list? What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it to only show bookmarks/my list?

Thanks.

I know how to bookmark a page- what I want to know is how to restore the bookmark star in the address bar (I accidentally removed it). I KNOW that you can bookmark a page by clicking the 3 dots at the end of the address bar and using the drop down menu, etc, or key commands.

BUT- I want to RESTORE the star that easily and quickly allowed you to bookmark a page. All other answers to this same question seem to only tell people alternate ways to bookmark a page. I don't need that. I need to know how to restore bookmark star to address bar. Thanks! my firefox ver is 84.0.1 64bit
