Is there anyway to get the bookmarks back on the homepage for iOS and if not can it please get added back. I really like this app but it feels like every update removes a function or adds something that makes life more painful.

- You updated and took my bookmarks away (something I needed and used all the time. How can you do that? Really? - also every time I go on line I get another stupid sign at the top right telling me to update again. I'm being pestered to do something that screwed me over. - I’ve tried the (old firefox date folder, thing) and it didn’t work. (so please don't suggest that) - I have to go looking for what bookmarks I have left (no more drop-down menu with all of them right there where over the years I've organized them)

I used to like this program, a lot. If I can’t get my Book marks back I’m done with FireFox. What the hell were you thinking?

My list of bookmarks that used to automatically display down the left side of my screen are now relegated to a heading in the bookmarks toolbar at the top of the page. This is completely useless to me. What happened to the display down the left side, and how can I stop this from NEVER changing in the future? I've had this happen before, and every time it does it takes me half a day to find the hidden solution to the problem.

I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...

Best regards heusmich

I have a series of 20 or so webpages that I like to read first thing in the morning. When I open Firefox and click on "Open All in Tabs" it creates a tab for each website, but won't load that website until I select the address bar and press enter. It doesn't happen all the time, but I'd say 95% of the time.

We just upgraded to windows 10 and it has been a rocky road to normalcy. My IT department uses Quest for everything. Quest SMA and SDA along with Desktop Authority. The CIO decided they didn't like Edge and wanted to move to a new browser. They did this 2 days before we go live. The question is how do i make firefox import the Bookmarks. So many articles say try the adm admx files. Tried that..failed. They create a registry entry for it but there not used. I tried finding the file location but firefox has some odd profile naming that changes the folder name. That and the location from the articles doesn't have the file it says to open. As of now I am just lost. I'm not sure how to complete this task of adding bookmarks or the Home Page. I was able to get them setup as the default browser but without the bookmarks or favorite its all moot. We have over 300 users and they are about 3 weeks away from coming back to work. I need a solution or i will have to force them to use Edge(no one wants that even web sites hate edge.). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Is this possible? I like the sleekness of not having the bookmarks bar but it would be very helpful to have it popup when I open a new tab only. (I use this feature in Brave browser, but I prefer Firefox)

I searched the entire web and looked for add-ons and couldn't find a solution. I have attempted to create a custom chrome css file but that didn't work.

What can I do?

edit: added question mark to title.

Hello helpers! I have lost my bookmarks and several add-ons after latest install (77.0.1). I can't find old profiles to use and restoring to an older bookmarks backup doesn't work either; I get an error message "unable to process the backup file - but it does at least see the last relevant version from 10.6.2020.

To compound the problem, whist working my way through several solutions offered on these forums, I hit the Refresh Firefox button, which created an Old Firefox Data folder on my desktop - but seems to only contains the new stuff after today's upgrade) AND I also reset my Firefox password and got the message that Personal Data will be lost so that has added to the problem. Basically a massive mess!

Can I revert to the older Version of Firefox or using an old computer backup or is there another way to fix this?? It's nearly 3000 bookmarks going way back to 2014 - I'd be gutted to lose it all.

I appreciate any help - thanks in advance! Nicole

Bookmark manager is quite good - the manual organization is simple, but I'm confused in same case over and over...

I'm pretty sure, I have some bookmarks already saved to somewhere. But I have a lot of bookmarks. And yes, I can search for some bookmark - the manager find them - I can click and all is running, but - where is the bookmark hidden ? In which folder ? Next time I want to go to bookmarks menu and select that bookmark directly... Not calling BM again and again...

This simple information is missing in searched bookmark, when clicked on them once.

It shows: - name - address - tags - keywords

BUT NOT WHERE IT IS... (?) The folder where it stays...

Do You think it is not important ? For Me sure...

Or I have overlooked something ? Maybe ?

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
