When my desktop Icons get scrambled or gone in Windows 7, I delete the Icon Cache file in Users\My name\Appdata\Local. (IconCache.db) I have been doing this on and off for years. I had to do this today and all my Desktop URL Icons were missing. The Urls are still there, but they all just have the default Windows Icon. I have tried everything I know to get them back but no luck. I have tried just going to the site and Book Marking it again, but that sometimes works but most of the time not. I copy the new book mark and paste too the Desktop and still, just MS Default. I remember at one time I could get to all these Icons. But now I cannot find them.. I don't know what happened but, Please Help..!! I need my Icons...

WHERE IS MY BOOKMARKS TOOLBAR??? Every time I update Firefox (now 109), I end up with all kinds of problems! NOW, I can't see my bookmark toolbar. All the help articles tells me how to show it or how to bookmark a page, which I already did multiple times. But this issue is never solved. If I can't get this resolved, I'm going to MS Edge.

Hello, I've noticed a change since the last update and don't understand why?

When opening the bookmarks tab I would get the drop down of a long list of links I have saved. I sometimes bunch them into groups so when looking down the long list, I can see the link I want better when more than one are from the same website.

But my issue is that when I went through the list and found that group of links, I could click onto one to open the page. In the past before the update I could click on the bookmarks drop down again, and still see the same area of links I had just clicked on.

Now when the bookmarks drop down closes it defaults to the top of the list and I need to scan down to find the links I was looking at again. Why? Yes when I closed the browser off and reopened it the bookmarks list would start at the top again. But if left opened I could click on the bookmarks tab and it would open to the same link area I clicked onto last.

Is there a way in settings I can reverse this annoying, unnecessary change.

A word to the Firefox workers that like changing things for no reason. I use Firefox because I like the things your browser has that the others don't. Keep taking the little things away that people like, which you seem to keep doing, then my favourite browser will just become "The same old s#*@" like all the others.

"Manage bookmarks" doesn't bring up the "Manage bookmarks" window

Until recently, when I press Ctrl+B, I get a bar at the top of the browser containing a link "Manage bookmarks". I can click the link to bring up the "Manage bookmarks" window.

That's not as convenient as the older behaviour wherein the "Manage bookmarks" window appears immediately when I press Ctrl+B, and it also consumes about half a centimetre of space across the entire width of the browser window (which is a lot with Firefox window maximized). I find also that the need to move the pointer to the link and click it interrupts flow, which is why people use hot keys like Ctrl+B. However, at least the "Manage bookmarks" link worked.

As of approximately a few days ago, clicking the "Manage bookmarks" link does nothing. It does not bring up the "Manage bookmarks" window. Neither does Shift-clicking the link, Ctrl-clicking, or Shift+Ctrl-clicking. I think it must be something about the most recent update. I'm on version 109.0.1 (64-bit) and I'm on Windows 10.

Does anyone else see this? How can I get the "Manage bookmarks" link to work?

Funky/Corrupted bookmarks? - Involves Linux and Firefox Sync

Hi folks. Currently I am using Firefox Sync to sync my bookmarks between an andriod, Linux laptop and Linux desktop. At times I have difficulty relocating a bookmark to a given position on my desktop or laptop, but my biggest problem centers around bookmarks that I relocate in a different place in the "Unsorted" folder or to a different folder not always appearing in the new position on the other machines. In an attempt to troubleshoot this further I went to my Linux desktop, signed out of FF sync, backed up my 2000+ bookmarks, exported my bookmarks (both to local directories), exited firefox and then renamed the places.sqlite. When I then attempted to restore from json file and when I input bookmarks from the html file I saw all my bookmark directories recreated but all my files were dumped into the "Unsorted Bookmarks" folder. I finally had to put the places.sqlite file back in place in order to continue working, however, my original problems remains. When I attempt to verify the places database I get the following, but clearly something is out of whack. How best can I create a cleaner bookmarks database?

Hi, I maintain a master bookmark file on my PC.

At work, I have built/maintain a similar - but wildly different - bookmark file on my work computer.

I would like to import my work bookmarks into a *sub* folder under my primary bookmark file maintained at home. It has been my experience - through trial and error - that this is not possible.

If it is possible, please let me know.

Thanks!!!

ps: There is no sensitive information in my work bookmarks... just in case you head down that road... thanks again!

I would like to transfer my bookmarks (and my open tabs) from my Windows 10 laptop to a new Windows 11 laptop. I've looked at the questions and answers people have posted but its a complete mystery to me. I had thought that when I loaded Firefox onto the new PC and signed in, everything would automatically appear. I was successful in doing that with Chrome but Firefox is still my primary browser and I've had no luck. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi All my icons changed to a globe image yesterday. I don't know why. However, I discovered that if I opened a bookmark, the correct icon reappeared. With 30 bookmarks to work on, this seemed like a lot of time, BUT your can "Open All Bookmarks in Tabs" and if you wait long enough, all your icons will be restored to those which the websites supply.
