I have a number of bookmarked pages. When I open a new window and then select the bookmarked page i want to open, FF switches tyo another ALREADY OPEN TAB and loads the page there removing the page that was opened. EX: I use both regular FF and Private windows on my screen and switch from one to the other according to the loaded pages I am using. When I open a new tab in private windows and try to get FF to open a bookmarked page, it will switch to my open tabs under regular FF instead of opening the bookmarked page in the new private windows page it will REPLACE an open page. This happens a lot with my YouTube pages which I leave open during the day to listen to binaural beat music in the background while I am working. What's up with that? Why doesn't the bookmarked page open in a new private windows tab?

I also noticed that when I leave pages open during the day in both private and regular FF now (since the most recent update)and go back to them, I often have to reload the whole page instead of just allowing me to go directly to something on that page.

I have been dodging the most recent updates because with each new update there seems to be more and more CONTROL from your side, and less freedom on our side of the screen. Is this purposeful? If so, WHY?!!!

I do not use the sync function to keep my bookmarks up to date on separate computers. I have a location on a server that I can access from any of my machines. Usually I import and export to html bookmark file.

I have organized my bookmarks into various folders. When I attempted to update one of my boxes, all the bookmarks were removed from the folders and placed in a huge list in Other Bookmarks. The folder structure did not change, but all the folders were empty.

I tried to use a json file as an alternative, but this also had the same result.

I run Debian Linux on all my machines, if that matters.

What could be the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hi I've just changed phones and I'm trying to customise my Firefox homepage to how it was on my old phone. I select a bookmark, click on the option to add to the home page, give it a title and it confirms that it's been added to the home page. But when I return to the home page, the shortcut is not there. Am I doing something wrong?

Just today 7/17/21 my bookmarks toolbar disappeared but I was able to restore it. But all the saved bookmarks in the bookmarks toolbar that always appeared in Bookmarks Toolbar don't appear in the Bookmarks Toolbar column. AND when I try to add bookmarks to the bookmark toolbar a circle with a line through it appear preventing me from adding bookmarks. Couldn't find any solutions online in Firefox Help websites. Does anyone have a solution to restore saved bookmarks to bookmarks toolbar and add new bookmarks like I have always done? Thank you.

I recently reinstalled Firefox after doing a full Windows reinstall on my PC. Since then, my bookmarks are not displaying on the bookmarks toolbar. I've "refreshed" Firefox from the control panel, rebooted my PC, and reinstalled Firefox. I've also moved the bookmarks from the toolbar folder in the bookmark manager and then put them back. Any suggestions?

I mistakenly closed a Firefox desktop window with several thousand tabs in it. (Yes, I know, "several thousand"). Tried to restore it after restarting my box by going to: CTL+SHIFT+H > Import and Backup > Restore > [date] My configuration is here: http://paste.c-net.org/ComboRound.

Firefox normally responds with: "This will replace all of your current bookmarks with the backup. Are you sure?" Clicking "OK" leads to nothing. Firefox just does becomes unresponsive for maybe 20s and then apparently aborts the command with no message at all.

I have no doubt that this is due to the massive number of tabs involved, even though the cached tab-file only weighs 630kB. How can I recover those tabs even if it's in a piecemeal manner and using command line in terminal ? Thank you.

Hi, I have seen instructions on the Google search on how to do this but the instructions don't line up with the current version of Firefox. YouTube videos are all about using code which is beyond me. There must be a piece of software (app) or some other simple way to do this. Has anyone found a way yet?

Thanks, Pete

Hi,

searching for bookmarks (with sidebar) is no problem. There are several cases where I look, if something or similar had been bookmarked already. With this I want to avoid doubling/tripling/'moreling' bookmarks. But if I find something already bookmarked, I do not know in my about 1000 bookmarks where the bookmark is located. I tried to show properties of the found bookmark but it does not tell where it is placed. So I would have to look manually about 100 folders to find where the bookmark is located.

The most easy solution I think, would be indicating the place of the bookmark when showing settings of bookmark. On hovering over the found bookmark in a third line of popup could be told the location of this bookmark and would be visually more pleasant I think.

Else I have to put the bookmark doubled in a more visible location and delete the bookmark found by search. This workaround works but is not intuitive and bothersome (and costs much more time).

As this solution would be easy to implement, I hope, this can be implemented 'soon'. I think, this would help many others, too. (At least I heard from several others in my environment, that they miss such a thing.)

Not forgetting, thanks for the great browser, Niels

Hi all, Once and a while, suddenly, bookmarks can´t be saved any longer. So I restart Firefox and all is ok again. This happens perhaps twice a month. - Existing Bookmarks can be opened, but can´t be moved in the structure. - This issue exists since many Firefox versions. - The *.sqlite files are not write protected. - All Add Ons are switched off.

I have to close for each new start of Firefox all windows and so I am loosing the workflow :-(. Does anybody know about this issue? Many thanks Achim

I purchased a new laptop. I exported bookmarks to an html file on my desktop and copied them to a thumb drive. I then copied them to my new laptop. I then imported the bookmarks into Firefox on the laptop. They were magically added to the bookmarks on my desktop. It took a long time to delete the extraneous bookmarks.

How do I avoid this?
