I was editing the bookmarks on PC in hope that the change will reflect on my iPhone with the sync on, but contrary to what I hoped, the sync worked the other way around, any change I made on PC will be reverted in a few minutes, which seems that it has been synced by the bookmarks on my iPhone. How do I get it right? I would like to have the ability to make changes on either device and reflect on the other device.

I don't really understand why collections were created for mobile browser. All its doing is making people re-do ALL of our bookmarks again, in a duplicate place.

If you want to use your bookmarks, 

you have to click setting dots, then bookmarks, then correct folder, then FINALLY the page you'd like. Four steps for 1 page. I might as well just re-type it out, save it into a brand new "collection", and try to set up everything all over again.

If you just transferred already existing bookmarks

to show on the Android browser home page, the same way you have collections work, it would fix ALL of that.

If you don't want all of your bookmarks to show in the drop down "collections" menu, then delete them or save them in a different main bookmarks folder.

Is there a way to use "search engine shortcut" without query just to go to a website of the appropriate search-engine?

So as, for example, after writing "g" (or "g"+space) in the search bar and pressing Enter, firefox opened the url "https://www.google.com/search?q=" (or something like that).

It used to work this way in older versions of Firefox (before 83), but since then firefox just searches "g" with the default search engine. Or it "eats" the shortcut (after pressing space) and turns it into a "blue/gray search engine label" but it does not allow me to go to the search engine web without writing some query that I need to remove afterwards.

I was using this feature as a sort of bookmark shortcuts to "custom" search engine websites (I'm using tens of them for debugging purposes and often need to fill in some additional parameters to the "text" query - often even to an "empty query").

The closest I got googling was probably "browser.urlbar.update2.emptySearchBehavior" - but it either does not work already, does not do what I'm expecting or I did not come up with the correct value for it.

Hello! I have lost both my Firefox custom opening page, and all my accumulated Bookmarks, after an apparent Firefox Upgrade. I have ttried everything to recover my old Bookmarks, but cannot find them using the Bookmarks Menu. I have tried to locate these files using my Windows File Manager, but thery are nowhere to be found within my Firefox Folder in my main Hard Drive (C:\).

If these files are hidden, I/m not aware of that and I have selected to show all hidden folders or files. These old Bookmarks must be SOMEWHERE within my Firefox Folder, but WHAT must I look for? My problem does NOT seem to be covered within the Help files.

Thank YOu,

Alexander

After upgrading to 93.0, this one bookmark isn't working. When I talked to the technical support for the bank, the person indicated that it was a problem with FF, not with the bank. I am able to get into the account if I use Safari (ugh!). Once I click on the login bar, there isn't any corresponding bouncing dot on the tab, which indicates that there isn't anything going on on the website. The website just sits there. As far as I know, I've not having this problem with any of the other bookmarks that I use on a regular basis.

Any suggestions?

can't figure out how to get actual bookmarks from an old /home folder that I've archived from a previous version of Ubuntu.

I created a tar.gz back-up of my /home folder prior to doing a fresh install of UbuntuStudio 18.04. (The previous version was Ubuntu Studio 16.04, and it wouldn't let me upgrade, so I had to do a whole new installation.) I never "exported bookmarks" because I never realized I could do that! However, I was sure there must have been bookmarks already kept somewhere in my /home folder. However, now I can't figure out how to get at them. Although I can extract all kinds of files dealing with Firefox, I can not figure out how to access or generate Firefox bookmarks from all those files that exists. I'll try to attach a photo of my terminal output for what I can extract from the old /home that had "firefoxbookmarks" in it's name. Can anyone please help me.

But in case it doesn't upload here is my terminal output: usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/ usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/__init__.py usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/unity_firefoxbookmarks_daemon.py usr/share/dbus-1/services/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.service usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/ usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/copyright usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/changelog.Debian.gz usr/share/unity/scopes/web/firefoxbookmarks.scope usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/unity_scope_firefoxbookmarks-0.1.egg-info var/lib/dpkg/info/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.md5sums var/lib/dpkg/info/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.list usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/ usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/__init__.py usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/unity_firefoxbookmarks_daemon.py usr/share/dbus-1/services/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.service usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/ usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/copyright usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/changelog.Debian.gz usr/share/unity/scopes/web/firefoxbookmarks.scope usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/unity_scope_firefoxbookmarks-0.1.egg-info var/lib/dpkg/info/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.md5sums var/lib/dpkg/info/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.list

Please, please fix the double spacing in the bookmark menu. Please go back to single spacing. Not sure why this change was made a few versions ago but I is NOT an improvement. If it was done in error fix it. If someone thought is was a good idea please ignore them. All this did was make it WAY harder to use the menu. I have found no way to change this back on my own. No settings, no downloads, nothing. If there is a way could someone direct me how to make a permanent fix.

Whenever I make changes in Bookmarks Manager, they aren't applied to my bookmarks in Firefox. They are saved within the Bookmarks Manager, they just don't update to my actual bookmarks (i.e., the way my bookmarks are displayed within the Bookmarks Manager does NOT match the way my bookmarks actually show up in the browser). I have tried:

-refreshing Firefox -unchecking the box for "read-only" in the places.sqlite file (as recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-add-change-or-save-bookmarks) -deleting both the "places.sqlite" file and the "xulstore-json" file (as recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-add-change-or-save-bookmarks) -restarting my computer

This is a major issue for me and may mean I have to switch back to Chrome if I can't get it sorted. Any other suggestions on how I can fix this issue?
