Hello,

on a Pixel 4, up-to-date with Android 10, and Firefox for Android, version 68.11.0, I want to import my bookmarks from a html file, saved on this Pixel. That means I cannot use Sync - but this seems to be the only way managing bookmarks. Isn´t there really any possibility for an import?

Many thanks Knut

Since the new update, I have been unable to see whatever I bookmark. New bookmarks are not added to the list of "desktop bookmarks," and selecting "recently bookmarked" takes you to a screen which remains blank.

I have already posted other problems regarding bookmarks and don't want to repeat myself, but I would like to express my disappointment. The new homepage is pushing the "collections" function, which sounds like it aims to do exactly what we where already doing with our bookmarks and bookmark folders - which have now become incredibly hard to use.

Hello,

I am wondering if there is a way to access my firefox account's saved ("sync" enabled) bookmarks from a generic web page -- such as from a computer/device that does not have firefox installed (and for which installing is not an option).

I came across this item: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1053133 and noticed that it is five years old.

So I am wondering if the behavior and/or options have changed since that time.

Thank you for any help!

I have noticed that the favicons on a website are not being created when I bookmark a new site or when I use a previous bookmark, they are not updating.

They are showing as a world globe when first created.

They used to always work so I can only assume that one of the Firefox updates has stopped this working so can someone provide any information to help get this fixed?

Thanks.

I have just been updated to the completely new Firefox Android. How can I make bookmarklets work in the whole new Firefox Android?

I use(d?) Zotero's bookmarklet daily on Firefox Mobile on Android: https://www.zotero.org/downloadbookmarklet

Since the new update, bookmarks do not show up over the current page when tapping the address bar: they only appear as a separate new tab, preventing JavaScript bookmarklets to work.

Does anyone has a workaround? Am I missing something? This massive, unasked for, feature-breaking update of Firefox on Android is really disruptive.

Thanks for any help!

When I go to my home page the browser's back button becomes inactive and I cannot use it to go back whence I came, i.e. the page on which I was when I clicked the home button.

I noticed that there are several situations when the back button suddenly decides to become inactive and I cannot go back with it, but this is one case that I can remember and can reproduce.

It is rather annoying as I was used from previous browsers (Safari, I am sure) that I could go back every time using the back button (unless the page forwards a hundred times and tricks the back button).

Any ideas?

In this awful new UI, every time I open a new bookmark it does so in a new tab. Then I have to go back and manually close the old ones. There should be a function to choose the default behavior.

Do you people actually ever do user testing with people other than yourselves?

Hi, I'm on an Android os and my Mozilla app recently suffered an update. In the prior version, when the URL field was tapped, a small list of frequently visited sites (or bookmarked ones), represented with little square icons, would pop up in the now-blank area between the menu bar and the keyboard as can be seen in the attached image.

I already tried adding the desired websites as actual bookmarks and I even tried putting them in all three default folders in case only one folder was tied to the "home screen" interface, to no avail.

Looked all through the settings, which have been severely simplified themselves, and found nothing but menu bar location and "light or dark" UI theme.

Looking forward to hearing back soon, and I hope this can get fixed asap if it's not my own mistake.
