So, the old problem of double spacing is back. Luckily only on bookmarks menu and sidebar, but even so it's annoying.

Has there been any progress with finding a solution for this perennial nuisance?

Also, the userchrome.css fixes I've used previously don't seem to be working. What's the latest fix to be used?

Dear Firefox support,

I am writing to inquiry about bookmarks. I have hundreds of bookmarks, if not thousands with many folders, which I have saved over the last decade. I have always synced my account and it should all be there upon downloading a new firefox on my new computer. However, the HTML file that it is asking me to upload from is not a file I am able to find in by backups, time machine, or anywhere else. It is also not in my account after I sign in. I have spent nearly 10 hours trying to figure this out. I have read all your articles and went through the steps of about:profiles. ALL my bookmarks should have been synced and saved. I have firefox in my Time-machine backup also. But none of the library files populates the bookmarks.

It would be a huge harm to my research career if I am unable to restore my bookmarks. I have trusted and used Firefox for a long time. Please assist me in obtaining these bookmarks in my browser.

Best,

A few months ago, an automatic feature in bookmarks quit working. It used to be that when you bookmarked a page you would be prompted about what bookmarks folder you wanted to put it in. That suddenly quit working. Now, after you bookmark a page, you have to go into "Manage Bookmarks" then move it to the folder you want. I can't find a setting that would bring that back. Was this a change that was deliberately made in an update or is it just a glitch that happened somewhere along the line? If that feature was removed, I'd like to know why. It doesn't make sense.

Hello, All along I have installed Firefox on my desktop pc with operating system Win. 7 and able to surf the internet etc. though I am aware that at my own risk that this is no longer supported. Recently there was a problem with my pc and I reinstalled Win 7 using the "Firefox Setup 115.4.0esr" where my Firefox account is now related to my gmail in accounts.google.com. From this NEW Firefox website all my previous bookmarks,history etc are not restored at all and instead it showed a fresh page on Bookmarks bar. Please let me know : 1). how to perform my PREVIOUS restoration of bookmarks, history etc ? I did not perform any "Sign in to Syn" because I fear that I will lose my previous bookmarks, history etc. 2). As a test only I keyed in my google accounts password in "Sign in to Syn" and was incorrect ? How can I retrieve/view my ORIGINAL password created in Firefox when I FIRST INSTALLED years ago ? 3). Does it mean that if my ORIGINAL password created can restore all my previous bookmarks, history etc if entered in "Sign in to Syn" ? 4). I DO NOT WISH TO change password because as per article read there is risk that I will lose some/all my previous bookmarks,history etc.

Thank You for your attention and early response.

I understand that the "Bookmarks Menu" Icon (see attached pic) can be used and then: 2) "Manage Bookmarks" can be selected (to get to the "Manage Bookmarks" <selection> screen).

But is there a 1-click Icon solution to access "Manage Bookmarks" (other than the keyboard one)? Or is there a link address that would access the "Manage Bookmarks" screen directly?

Hello, I recently tried to create an account to sync everything in firefox on my phone, but after a few attempts the account page just wouldn't load, so I decided to update the app because it was quite some time ago since I last updated it.

But right after the update, everything's gone: bookmarks, history, tabs. I was brought to a getting started page like I never installed firefox. I checked the bookmarks/history options but nothing was there. Shouldn't the app preserve its existing data even after an update? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

My bookmarks disappeared mysteriously yesterday while I was using the browser. All of them (I have a lot), there's nothing in the bookmarks toolbar. I use Firefox on two different machines regularly, and yesterday the second machine was fine, bookmarks still there. Today I logged on and the second computer had lost its bookmarks too.

I tried restoring. It worked on my other computer, no problem, all bookmarks returned. However, on this one the restore points are visible, but when I click them, nothing happens. I have tried restarting Firefox, no luck. Any ideas?

Hi,

I have been trying to use the extension "Sidebery" to replace "Tree Style Tab"

If my tabs are nested, bookmarking the tab tree will give me nested folder structure in firefox's bookmark.

If I right click on the top level folder in the bookmark, select "open all in tabs", firefox will only open those bookmarks in the 1st level folder, but won't open those bookmarks in the nested folders.

I wonder is there a way to do it? That is, open all bookmarks in a folder with those in the nested folder, all at once?

Is there a way to delete a bookmark from the book-mark drop-down window (accessed from triple horizontal bar/right side of browser) but retain the same book-mark that had been saved in a folder created in Other Bookmarks? I discovered that when you delete a book-mark entry from drop down menu, the same entry is also deleted from its saved location in Other Book Marks. I was trying to reduce number of unsorted entries in drop down menu while saving (and retaining) the same link in the Other Bookmarks section and folder. I want to continue using the sorting and discrete folder saving possible with the Other Bookmark section but clean up the clutter in the unsorted bookmark section.

When I click on Bookmark Current Tab in the Bookmarks menu no dialogue box appears and it does not save it. Command D etc. to the right of the menu items are grayed out.

When I right click on the tab and click on Bookmark Tab I do get a dialogue box, but Save is grayed out (i.e. not clickable). I can only click on Cancel.

Clicking on the star in the address bar also does nothing.

Command D does nothing.

I've also discovered I can't edit or remove bookmarks either. Those processes look like they are working, but the changes are not saved.

I have shut down and restarted my MacBook many times since this started happening, as suggested by jscher2000 on the Mozilla Connect Community board, so that doesn't work.

This is Firefox version 104.0.1 (64 bit), on a 2021 MacBook Pro running Mac OS 12.5.1 "Monterey". Both Firefox and the OS are up to date (checked them again just now).

I bought my MacBook new at an Apple store on 08-26-22, and transferred my files and settings from my 2018 MacBook to it from my backup drive, updating to the newest version of Firefox, which I gathered was released just a few days earlier on 08-23-22.
