Using Firefox version 117.0.1 (64bit). When I click "Bookmarks / Manage Bookmarks, the listing defaults to the "Other Bookmarks" folder. I would like it to default to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder. How do I make it do that? Note: The same name subject that I submitted in 2022 has been archived, and the solution that worked so well in 2022 no longer works. Help!!

Running FF 117.01 I ran Scanguard and now none of my Firefox bookmarks work. All are still showing up where they were, but none of the bookmarks led anywhere, when I click on them, nothing. Restarted FF, restarted the laptop. I also cannot seem to open the About Profiles page to check there. I would rather get this working if I can, other than re-installing. Thank you for any help.

Hi, My computer was having some issues and I thought that I transfer everything to a flash drive to transfer my information to a new computer. Come to find out it didn't transfer over to the flash drive. So everything is lost. My book marks and my saved web sites and passwords to them. I was wondering is there any way that you can help to retrieve them?

Multiple "instances" (NOT duplicates) of Bookmarks Menu (and assoc. folders and bookmarks)

I have multiple "instances" of all of my bookmarks in my Library--specifically, the Bookmarks Menu, the Folders within that menu and all of the individual bookmarks within each folder. (See attached; I'm just keeping the Bookmark Menu level but trust me, each one of those 5 instances has the exact same list of Folders and associated bookmarks.) I just want to see ONE instance of them in my library, not all of these redundant instances. When I delete ANY bookmark or folder in ANY of the multiple instances, ALL instances of that bookmark or folder get deleted. Searching the forums, I get solutions for combining duplicates, or backup/restoring bookmarks, or "turning off sync." But none of these relate to my issue (e.g., sync has never been on). They don't act like duplicates (where if you delete one the other remains). It acts as if there are multiple "pointers" to the same menu/folder/bookmark.

Can someone please assist with how I can get rid of the redundant instances/listings of the Bookmark Menu, folders and bookmarks without deleting all of them? I'd ideally like to keep the first one, underneath the Bookmarks Toolbar, so it shows up at the top of my screen.

Thank you.

The website https://www.cvs.com/ and the website https://www.cvs.com/otchs/bcbsma access two different websites with two different user/password. But there is no way to tell Firefox to have two different sets of user/password for each URL. When trying to access https://www.cvs.com/otchs/bcbsma, Firefox tries to log in with the user/password of https://www.cvs.com, which does not work. The two URLs have different user names, dictated by the websites

Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

I think I have looked through all of the troubleshooting suggestions for loading / importing old Firefox Bookmarks following a new Windows install.

- I did not have Mozilla Sync turned on. - My new install of Mozilla doesn't have restore points from my old install / program files. - My old SSD is accessible, however, User folder directories don't have the 'AppData/' folder directory. - Of course, I didn't think about / have a chance to create a manual restore point prior to my computer's crash.

Copying over my old Mozilla parent directories from my old SSD directory to my new SSD directory, hasn't restored prior Mozilla settings / bookmarks.

Does Mozilla store bookmarks anywhere else ?

I have downloaded an older version of Firefox browser. I thought I was able to keep my current Firefox browser and still download the older version.

Now all my folders and bookmarks are gone because my newer browser version was overwritten by the older browser version. How do I use a previous Firefox profile which has all my folders & bookmarks?

thank you for your help, JoAnne Johnson

i would like to be able to remove ANY bookmark at ANY time from the main menu, not the bookmark bar but the icons in the middle of screen when you open the browser

I cant delete half of them, they flicker for a millisecond and dont disappear. how? i feel like clicking dismiss should forcefully remove the icon. it doesn't and this just makes me a little angry.

add the ability to click on the 3 dots and click a new button called DELETE. it should fix the issue by removing it.

Preference "browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs" sets itself to true every time I close and reopen Firefox. I believe it just randomly started doing it one day. I have to manually set it to false each time I open the browser This preference makes it so, when true, whenever you click a bookmark it opens it in a new tab rather than replacing the tab you are currently on.
