Why are my bookmarks in my Android Firefox (Android 7.1.2) not directly exportable to a html page or for that matter to any other bookmarks app. Why is such a basic feature not available?

Bookmarks on Android and computer no longer match. Android bookmarks are the most recent. How do I export them to my desktop? I'm concerned if I sync, it will combine the two, and clutter my bookmarks with outdated ones or ones I have since deleted.

I can't delete any bookmarks. I've followed directions, but under the three dots there is no delete option. I'm using Catalina 10.5 on a Mac. Firefox works correctly and well on my MacAir.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Bookmark keywords in Firefox for Android v.79.0.3

Hello,

I sync my desktop Firefox with the Android app. Many of the desktop bookmarks have keywords defined (like [[this|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/bookmarks-firefox#w_how-to-use-keywords-with-bookmarks]]). I've used them for years for rapid access to frequently used pages. Until the recent update to v.79 on Android, the keywords also worked on the phone, but not anymore.

Is there a setting that I need to enable to make bookmark keywords work in Firefox for Android v.79+?

Thanks.

I am new to Firefox as well as Linux and my laptop is running two hard drives, each dedicated to its own operating system, Windows and Linux. I created a Firefox account in Windows and was able to export all bookmarks from Chrome to the new account. The Linux version I'm using is Manjaro KDE and Firefox comes pre-loaded and so I logged in with my new account and chose import bookmarks from HTML, having exported from Windows Firefox bookmarks via HTML. I see no file on the receiving end? Any ideas? Thank You, Ron

Sorry if long-winded, just trying to provide pertinent info...


So, when I click on the bookmarks icon, I get the following options...

View Bookmarks Sidebar Show All Bookmarks Bookmarks Toolbar Other Bookmarks

The only one I ever use, the only one I need, is actually the Other Bookmarks folder.

This means I'm at minimum two clicks from my bookmarks, and three clicks from an actual bookmark.


My question...


How can I fix Firefox so that when I click on the Bookmarks icon it actually shows the bookmarks I seek to find, instead of all that other fluff I never use?


It'd be so nice to be only two clicks from a bookmark, thus...


1) Open Bookmarks icon 2) See my bookmarks


Thanks for any help you can provide here, as it is so annoying the way it is now.

Time consuming process to access Yahoo mail via Firefox

I recently purchased a 2020 iMac and have found accessing my yahoo mail account cumbersome. Each time I open Firefox, I have to start from scratch to access my yahoo emails (search for yahoo mail sign-in link, enter yahoo email account, enter yahoo password). Incredibly time-consuming and frustrating. On my previous iMac (purchased 2008!), yahoo mail opened immediately when Firefox opened, making it very easy to quickly check my email. I have been unable to reproduce this rapid access route, despite spending a few hours on the phone with Yahoo (which finally gave up and suggested asking Firefox). Bookmark for yahoo mail vanishes when Firefox is closed and then re-opened. Same for top sites. Direct yahoo email access remains only as long as Firefox remains open. I would appreciate help in creating an efficient route from opening Firefox to reading my yahoo emails. Thanks!
