Since 8/26/12 in one folder bookmarks and sub-folders either disappeared, were rearranged into other folders or "Unsorted Bookmarks", duplicated, old ones from older Netscape folders appeared in newer Mozilla folders, bookmarks and folders were duplicated but the bookmarks in them were either older ones from the past (see Netscape) or were deleted or all the above. The last Netscape folder (version 8) and the Mozilla one have flipped positions, (the latter used to be above the Netscape one). This occurs after every cold PC start. After several trouble shooting attempts it is now happening in all folders. I have to backup the bookmark file into a separate folder in My Documents as the regular backups all seem to be corrupted in the same way. I even purge the data in SYNC and that has done nothing to resolve this. I have deleted the old bookmarks from Netscape 6/7 and the problems still occurs. Deleting duplicates makes things worse. The Places Maintenance add on worked only 2 consecutive days; It is no longer effective. I have to restore the backup I have made each time I use Fire Fox after a cold start.

Since I updated to FF 5.0 and now FF 6.0 yesterday, I still do not receive the pop up notice/warming that "you are about to close several tabs, do you want to?" I've had this setting for a couple years now, I think. Probably since it was offered.

I looked at this article on FF help:

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Firefox%20does%20not%20ask%20to%20save%20tabs%20and%20windows%20on%20exit

I do not want to restore any session. I just want the pop up notice that asks "Are you sure you want to close all these tabs?"

Windows XP, SP3 Settings in FF: Tools | Options | Tabs (These are all checked) Open new windows in a new tab instead Warn me when closing multiple tabs Warn me when opening multiple tabs might slow down FF Always show the tab bar

I did find an article and did the following (the first one was set to True already, but the second one was set to False and thus changed it) Type about:config in the address bar and press enter. Click on I'll be careful, I promise Enter browser.warnOnQuit in the filter field at top Double click (toggle) on it to change the boolean value to true. Now enter browser.showQuitWarning in the filter field Double click on it to change it to true Now restart Firefox

Still no pop up when I shut down with multiple tabs open.

Firefox maintains cookies. No history, but cookies remain.

My toolbar bookmark icons change constantly, and it's been getting worse lately. Gmail seemed to be the first, but now many more are changing. I delete titles for these so I can cram many of these onto the toolbar, so it's really important. After I click onto one of these errant icons, they will sometimes re-establish themselves, in Gmail, for example, after signing in. Other times they don't.

Since it is in the download, I am unable to permanently delete these (over 100) cookies and they continue to reoccur each time I open the browser. Sometimes the cookies will not delete when I try to remove only "one" cookie and I must remove "all". I have used Firefox as my browser for years but this has never happened.

I updated my computer by moving my XP OS to a slave drive and now have Win 7 professional OS in the main C drive.

When I went looking for the location of the bookmarks in the XP slave drive, I could not find it at the locations that were commonly listed. I have made hidden files option viewable. Just not sure where my bookmarks went. I found the modzilla folder and it contained everything else except the bookmarks.

I just updated Firefox to version 15.0 on the Mac. Suddenly, all of my bookmark folders that are supposed to be in my Bookmarks Toolbar are no longer there, and the Toolbar won't let me put them back there. This is substantially non-optimal. I must say, I'm becoming less and less of a fan of Firefox with every passing update, which saddens me.

Bookmarks no longer display in a sidebar of the browser. When this has occurred in the past I have manged to display them by pressing CTL+SHIFT+B but his does not display them this time

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (shutting down my laptop after uninstalling) while retaining my settings

I have checked the Help files for Firefox but none of the suggestions seem appropriate and/or do not display the bookmarks in the browser sidebar

I can display the bookmarks as a toolbar across the top of the browser but this shows only the folders, which I have to open each time to go to a particular bookmark. The folder does not remain open as it did when displayed in the sidebar

Any help in displaying the bookmarks in the browser sidebar would be much appreictaed

When bookmarking a page, I can't get the complete list of bookmark folders to drop down in order to select any folder in which to bookmark page. The 'Folder:' bar has 'Bookmarks Menu' showing. The arrow on the bar drops down 5 recent folders to which pages have been saved, but the pop down arrow to the right of the bar just opens to show the three categories and 'New Folder' button. What do you set to get whole list of folders in Bookmarks to drop down?
