I am trying to clean up my bookmarks and reorganize or delete bookmarks no longer used, however it appears the program possibly has an auto install of bookmarks, possibly from my phone or another browser. How do I turn off auto install of bookmarks. I guess what I am trying to do is turn off Syncing so my Firefox device does not obtain bookmarks from my other devices.

I just updated to Windows 10 Pro from Windows 7 Pro. When I do a create new folder in my bookmarks I cannot name it. It stays as New Folder where I created it. I can only change it by going back to location in Bookmarks and then I right click on the New Folder and can only change the name by going into Properties and typing over the New Folder name.

Why has Firefox started automatically adding bookmarks without asking me what to name them. In the past, when you clicked on “Bookmark This Page” a box popped up and asked you what you wanted to name the bookmark and where you wanted it to be saved. Now a little blue flag appears at top right corner of the screen and your bookmark has already been added. You then have to right click on the bookmark to edit it’s properties. Does anyone know how to change that back to the way it was ? Thank you so very much for your help on this.

Hello,

Last night I went to bed and all my bookmarks were there. Today I woke up and all the bookmarks are gone on my laptop and the open tabs, add-ons etc. I am signed in. Restoration does not help (last backup is with today date). But on my smartphone I see them in bookmarks-> desktop bookmarks. How do I save them? I really don´t want to lose them.

Thanks a lot for any advice,

Cyril

I have re-installed my windows on my PC. Then after installing firefox I've signed in with my account. All my extensions are restored ind installed automatically. But there is no any of my bookmarks. I'm sure that is was synced before installing windows. However, now I don't have my bookmarks. Is there any way to check from server side, were my bookmarks saved or not. Maybe they are still on server but cannot sync to my PC?
