Up until today, when I clicked on Library icon I would see my bookmarks organized in folders (the way I wanted). Now I get a list of most recent bookmarks which is fairly useless. How can I get the old menu back. The folders/bookmarks are all there. I can see them when I click on Manage Bookmarks. Firefox is up to date. TIA, Mark

I have reinstalled Windows 10 in a new computer, installed a fresh copy of Firefox, and successfully imported my bookmarks from the original computer. But I cannot discover how to export and import my bookmarks toolbar. Another user has attempted to answer the question, but the description is very ambiguous and I can't understand it: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1266729. The following "official" page also does not deal with the issue: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Sorting_and_rearranging_bookmarks_-_Firefox. I would have expected that there would be an "Import or Export Bookmarks Toolbar" facility somewhere, maybe under Menu | Bookmarks | Bookmarks Toolbar - but no luck. Could an explanation be provided?

Hi,

I tried to bookmark a page but I was not successful in Firefox (am also using Chrome and I was able to do it there). I tried using Ctrl + D and using a mouse by clicking the star, both were unsuccessful. There was no error message.

Can you help? Thanks.

Hi,

I have a problem with Firefox 102.5esr on MacOS 10.13 and storing the user-profile on a SMB-share in the intranet.

On startup I get the error "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional" and as expected, bookmarks and history are not working. Access etc. in the network are correct, I tried it with two different clients on two different servers (Linux-Server and NAS), the profile is a fresh created, deleting and recreating does not help.

If I copy the created profile on the local disk, Firefox starts without an error, bookmarks/history are working, if I copy this profile back to the SMB-share, I get back the error-message.

In the past (I don't remember when it was and which version) this was working with Firefox and today it still works with the current Thunderbird.

Any ideas?

PS: The described solutions in the KB are not working: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

Thanks, kind regards, tg

I often use the cync, as its very a usefull tool, for when my pc crashes and I have to re-install windows. What is a real pain though, is even when I have the latest version of fire fox installed , after cync has completed, I stll get back many book marks that I have deleted well be before my last recync and with an older version of firefox. Which i find to be a real pain.

Would it not be possible to change the way cync works, ie, you cold add a button, words to the effect "cync from online to you", in that way, I know I am getting the book marks and data I sent up there last time, I cync-ed

Or to cync your data, when wishing to put all your latest bookmarks offline, would it not be possible to "clear online bookmars and data.

Anys I hope this helps you to understand the problem

Many Thanks

Hi!

I would really appreciate some assistance. there was an automatic update today and that created a total mess. All my bookmarks reverted back to the ones I had in September 2021.

Even all the extensions were gone after that, which was quite annoying, since I had to start adding them again.

Any ideas how to get it all back?

When I right-click a bookmark folder and select "Sort By Name", it sorts sub-folders to the top, then individual bookmarks after.

I prefer folders and files not to be segregated like that, but to be sorted together. That is how I have it in my file manager, I'm used to it, I much prefer it. I would like to be able to duplicate that behavior in Firefox's bookmarks. Is that possible?

Hi, I've had Firefox 64 bit running on Windows for a while and recently was given a newer machine where I installed a newer version of the OS. I put the old HDD's as slaves in this new machine. So the old FF is in the slave machine.

I have also installed new Firefox on this new Win10 LTSC, but when I go looking in my now slave HDD I can see FF, but cannot see any bookmarks. Additionally, when I run the FF executable in the old HDD it still runs the new FF, without the old bookmarks.

So how can I extract the old bookmarks on the older FF? Without withdrawing the now slave HDD and making it a master again? As it's now missing most of the OS files too.

Thank you!

Hello,

Firefox quit and I restarted the application with all previous browsing tabs. Unfortunately, for some reason, all of my bookmarks (50+) are gone and I cannot find a way to get them back. I do not think I am usually signed into a Firefox account.

Please any help would be much appreciated. I do not recall all the things I've bookmarked.

I have an on going problem with Firefox. Sometimes when I go to save a new bookmark, as soon as I start typing, the new bookmark vanish. I then have to go into bookmarks menu, find the new bookmark which may be titled "No Title" or just a "small square" and re-title it. As I start typing the first letter of the new Title. The typed letter appears on my screen and quickly vanishes. I have to retype the first letter again and then it works correctly. I have tried many things to fix this. Emptying Firefox cache, Refreshing Firefox many times, Running Windows 11 clean up corrupt files, making sure there is no spy wear of bad files on the computer. I have reinstalled Firefox many times but the problem quickly returns. ( I have wondered if something on my computer is corrupting Firefox, but I cant think, or find out, what it my be.) I have run the program Restoro many times which claims to correct problems but it doesn't fix this one. Had a technician look at it, but his advise was to contact Mozilla. The problem does not always happen and is worse when I first turn the computer on. It plays up on the first new Bookmark I make and then sometimes works correctly. My Bookmark folder is very large and contains much information in a Book, Chapter, Paragraph, Sentence structure. Has anyone experience this problem and how did they fix it? I use a dedicated Solid-state drive for my bookmarks and according to Samsung Magician it is working correctly.

It's so maddening trying to do something as simple as accessing all my bookmarks! Why?! It's an integral feature of browsing that pinheads around the globe, like me, use on a regular basis? Why does it have to be a mystery easter egg hunt just to find them?! Why does it have to be one of the major topics on your Support page instead of simple, and user friendly, so it's not one of the likely topics people need help with? When I click on the bookmarks symbol, I can access the most recent bookmarks but not the rest. I searched online and the help said to access them in the Library. Where the [expletive] is the library? It's not visible. Not in Settings. Is this browser made for masochists that love torture?! Ahhhgggg!
