Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

Hello, Since recent update, I can no longer select my bookmarks as before. Indeed, with each selection, I only get tabs that flood my pages. How do I choose my bookmarks in the bookmarks list and not in tabs? Thank you. Cordially.

Scroll speed when dragging url into bookmarks list

It's very convenient to drag a url from the address bar into a bookmark folder, unless the folder has a lot of entries, then scrolling the list by dragging the new bookmark off bottom or top of the list to look for the intended destination, is too fast & prone to drop off top or bottom.

I guess this is something to do with scroll physics ? but I tried a few hopeful looking possibles in about:config without success - very impressive all that, I had no idea.. but... it would make my work easier if I knew what to adjust.

There are three regions where the cursor has different effects. In the central region - where bookmarks and folders are displaye -, moving the cursor does not cause scrolling. In the top & bottom regions the cursor causes scrolling up and down respectively. I imagine there is a parameter to control the proportionality between the distance from cursor to region-boundary & scroll-speed. Is this how it works ? Can I adjust that, or is there some other way to make this interaction more controllable ?

I'd be grateful for a reply, but even if not, I want to express my gratitude for the great work of this project. It is amazing to see the resilience of open software against the tsunami of commercially driven development - good though some of that is. It almost gives me hope for humanity ;-> Thank you all

Don't know where to write it, but I hope some developers of Firefox will read it...

After years of UI / UX Design studies Firefox recently "updated" the bookmarks menu ignoring everything ever established in UI / UX design rules!

1. When you right click on a bookmark you suddenly find the bookmark options split into two segments? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. Why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"? Such things cause all this annoying obstacles which no one needs when working with a program. Who ever thought this might be a great intervention should take the step back.

Same with folders. 1. When you right click on a bookmark folder you suddenly find the bookmark folder options split into two segments, too? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. And again, why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"?

When bookmarks are restored, they are in reverse order

Hello, I'm using syncing for several years and now I had to reset my working laptop to default Windows 10 installation. So I installed also Firefox, loged in and was waiting for restoring of the bookmarks and the rest. What happened was the bookmarks were empty, only folders were restored. I saw the bookmarks for few seconds and then they dissapeared. And of course it synced the state into the rest of my devices. So I used one of the backups I do on many occasions. What happens is the bookmarks are back, but they're completely in reverse order. Everything is rotated and the splitters are at the bottom of each folder. Nothing helps, it's again synced into all my devices and I'm going crazy, because I put so much time in the past to organize the bookmarks and I have thousands of them. I have backups in json as well as in HTML, but the reverse order is terrible. What can I do? Best regards, Pavel

The look of Bookmark Folders in V89

Just having upgraded to V89.0.1, I won't focus on how more difficult to see the separation of tabs, but instead: All my folders in bookmarks have turned clear and appear to be the basic default look. Specific sites under each folder, as well as the individual sites not in folders, have kept their (what used to be called) Favicons.

I see no customizing option for this. Can I at least give the top level folder a color, WITHOUT FANCY PROGRAMMING OR EDITING OF DEEP CONFIGURATION FILES, just by menu clicking?

I'll conclude by not asking why the Powers thought to remove such things. To me it makes it HARDER to find my way around Firefox and displayed page.
