I recently installed windows on a new solid state hard drive, and did a fresh install of firefox, but I forgot to manually backup my bookmarks. The old install is still on the old windows hard drive, is there a way for me to move them onto the new install? I'd prefer to not have to rebuild the whole list from scratch!

I am trying to edit my bookmarks, deleting those no longer needed, etc. However, I now have several versions in my bookmark folders, an up to date one, an original one, and an in-between one. They seem to show up randomly. Why is this happening? If I delete or edit a bookmark, can't it stay edited or deleted?

I'm organizing my bookmarks in the Sidebar and have lots of folders and dividers to keep things organized into categories etc. When grabbing a bookmark at the bottom of the list, I start to drag it to the top to get it to a folder in the middle but as soon as I get close to the top the scroll starts and accelerates to a high speed immediately and I scroll all the way to the top. I want to know if there's a way to slow down either the top speed or the acceleration of the scroll, because at this point I cannot finesse it enough to get to where I want.

Thanks, Roger

Dear Firefox support,

I am writing to inquiry about bookmarks. I have hundreds of bookmarks, if not thousands with many folders, which I have saved over the last decade. I have always synced my account and it should all be there upon downloading a new firefox on my new computer. However, the HTML file that it is asking me to upload from is not a file I am able to find in by backups, time machine, or anywhere else. It is also not in my account after I sign in. I have spent nearly 10 hours trying to figure this out. I have read all your articles and went through the steps of about:profiles. ALL my bookmarks should have been synced and saved. I have firefox in my Time-machine backup also. But none of the library files populates the bookmarks.

It would be a huge harm to my research career if I am unable to restore my bookmarks. I have trusted and used Firefox for a long time. Please assist me in obtaining these bookmarks in my browser.

Best,

Hi All,

A few of my sub-folders within my bookmarks do not show up in the Toolbar and Sidebar. The same bookmarks' sub-folder are present in the Bookmarks library (that's accessed from Firefox settings).

Could you please help with how I can get these sub-folders to show up in the Toolbar/Sidebar, please.

Thank you.

I would LOVE to see the option to either

  • save bookmarks to the last selected location
  • or to set a different default location than „mobile bookmarks“

The background d is that I usually never want to save to mobile bookmark folder, and almost exclusively use the bookmark bar or even a specific „sort“/„inbox“ folder in it.

Is there a way to achieve this on iOS already?

I stupidly exported my Google browser bookmarks to Firefox when setting up on a new device and lost all my firefox bookmarks from all my other devices as a result. I am utterly horrified and freaking out - it's years of bookmarked articles that I'd even organised into folders! Is there any way to get them back?

Hi Team,

I have been using firefox for 2 years now at work, logged in to sync the passwords and bookmarks. To my knowledge it seemed to be working fine.

I reimaged my laptop last week and reinstalled firefox and logged into my account and it did not download any of my saved bookmarks and saved passwords.

I suspect it may have been caused by a partially failed initial install of Firefox which may have wiped the data from the account.

Does mozilla keep backups of the profile data? If they do, could my account be restored to the state it was in on Thursday 28 March 2024?

Thanks Socrates

In French ('English underneath) J'essaye d'organizer mes marque pages 1)Je tape sur supprimer, la page revient à la prochaine application 2)Je crée un dossier. Dans des versions anterieures de Firefox, on pouvait simplement bouger les fiches avec controle>fleche jusqu'a le dossier. (Il n,y avait pas le separateur <autres marques pages>) Avant l'essai de reorganization, <autres marques pages> contenait la plupart des fiches, les marques pages normales (bouton >>je presume) contenait seulement une demi douzaine choisis au hazard. Apres l'installation des dossiers, <autres marque pages> contient seulement les dossiers, bouton >> toutes les fiches. Il est impossible de transferer de bouton >> jusqu'a <autres marque pages>, afin d'incluire les fiches dans un dossier.

I am trying to organize my bookmarks. 1)I press the delete button, the page comes back next time I open the computer 2)I create a file folder. In previous versions of Firefox ,there was no separator between bookmarks (button>> I assume) and <other bookmarks>, and one could transfer a file into a folder using control and the arrow. Before I tried to organize the bookmarks, <other bookmarks>for some reason contained nearly all my files, the button >> only a few chosen at hazard. Having created file folders, <other bookmarks> contains the folders, button >> all the files. It is impossible to transfer from button>> into the folders in <other bookmarks>.
