Is there an option in settings to force FireFox to stay in the locqtion within thehboomark tree? Currently when I select a bookmark after I selected a bookmark in the bookmark tree, I have sto start from the tree root. But I structured my tree according to similar topics, so I need sometimes a location in the bookmark tree quiet similar to the previously selected bookmark. It would be helpful If FireFox would remember the previosly selected location.

Again this is MOBILE Firefox on Android and all the backing out using arrows does is leave me with yet another empty folder. F*** that arrow button!!! It really needs to be more straight forward like making YouTube playlists or even how bookmarks work with Firefox on PC.

I really do want it to work but I have never had so much difficulty adding bookmarks to folders on any other browsers mobile or PC, this sucks!

So one more time, you select edit on a bookmark then checkmark the folder you want and arbitrarily back out without using any kind of confirmation button and then go back into said folder and expect that bookmark to be there. Am I getting that right?

Cause it would super sick if there was actually a bookmark in the damn folder when I went back to it. All I have now are empty folders so what am I missing???

Thanks for the help I greatly appreciate it and I would really like to like to keep using Firefox

OK Mozilla, this is just bad design, plain and simple.

When are we getting the bookmarks bar? Users have been asking for this feature for YEARS, and yet you keep ignoring us, why? Why is it so hard to make?

You don't want to give us the bookmarks bar? Fine, how about fixing the home screen? Only 2 rows and 2 pages of bookmarks? Are you guys joking? How about, I don't know, 10 rows and five columns, and 10 pages? You don't have to resize anything, you just have to use the space more wisely.

Also, can you get rid of the top left logo? It's a waste of space, I already know I'm using Firefox, you don't have to remind me every time.

Also #2, move the "private browsing" icon to the 3 dots menu.

Also #3, remove the pin icon from the bookmarks tags.

Also #4, remove the grey border of the favicons, it's more space wasted, you really love wasting space and our time don't you?

Sometimes I feel like you are you do things wrong on purpose, is Google paying you to be this bad? Honestly I can't find another answer, I hope I'm wrong.

How to Add bookmarks to folders in "firefox mobile"

Step 6 is the absolute weirdest way to add bookmarks to folders and it doesn't even work!

"6. Tap a few times the ←arrow at the top of the screen until you return to browsing the web"

The problem is what arrow key?.. All I have is a checkmark on the top right of my screen! I already use bookmarks/folders in my Firefox for Windows so why does this one have to be so abstract, minimalistic and counter intuitive?

My point is that I really don't want to use a mainstream browser from apple or Google and I like everything about Firefox for PC and Android except this is damn folder UI on mobile is the bane of my existence atm.

I've looked everywhere on YouTube, Google, Reddit, and of course Mozilla support. What am I missing? Please send a video or something just to clarify what I'm supposed to do in regards to adding bookmarks to folders.

Thank you for your help and patience in reading this I know it was super long

Bookmarks does not work. Please fix and post good instructions. See the many other negative complaints about Bookmarks. It should not be this hard to establish a bookmark folder and place an item in that that folder. Very frustrating to use!

I recently bit the bullet and am transferring from chrome to firefox. I was able to transfer my hundreds of book marks from chrome into desktop firefox, but I cannot get them on my phone. I saw one user suggest doing a "sync now" to force it, but when I tab "sync now" nothing happens and it continues reading "Last synced: Never" and I am logged into the same accounts on desktop and mobile.

How do I get this to work?

Is there a way to make a bookmark to a folder of bookmarks?

How to do it, if it is possible?

I would like to have an easy access to particular folder of bookmarks both - on my PC and my mobile phone.

Now it is an "either/or" case - easy on one device, but harder on the other.

I use Firefox for Android on my tablet (8" Samsung Galaxy tab S). It's really annoying that I can't add lots more of my synchronised desktop bookmarks to the homepage (which is mostly blank space, since I don't find all the suggestions, etc. useful). It would be great to give users more scope to customise this feature.

I recently got new samsung tablet s6 . I am logged into successfully to synchronize and see my bookmarks. Problem is I can't save new bookmarks on tablet. I found article about write protected file but those directions are not available on the tablet/android version of Firefox.

Less important 2nd question is...should the collections from my phone and pc show up on tablet? I do not see them. Would so much like to see them

I have used links to websites added to home screen. These shortcuts recently stopped working. If I use bookmark on Firefox Android it opens. If I copy url to Chrome and create a shortcut link on home screen it works. Is there a Firefox setting that changed? I've used these shortcuts without problem on this phone until past week or so.

I'm on Android 11 updated to Oct 2022. Xiaomi Poco X4 Pro 5G. Firefox 107.1.0 with "add shortcuts to home screen" enabled.

Thank you for guidance.
