A few days ago, my Windows laptop was attacked by Trojan virus. Windows Defender totally disabled the laptop, and I could not even press a key. I had hard disk destroyed and the laptop, too. Because I intended to buy a Mac in a few months anyway. I attempted FF download twice, no luck. I think the M1 chip may not be silicon chip that FF supports.

Do you know a way to get my BOOKMARKS so I can export to Safari? Does FF keep them?

I have a backup of all my documents and I included bookmarks in that, on a removable hard drive USB3.0 The MAC doesn't have a slot for 3.0. Will require having to buy something from Apple to accommodate it.

Hate to do that if it's a fool's errand. I appreciate your advice. Senior citizen in over her head.

Hi... I did a Firefox refresh today. Prior to the refresh, my bookmarks were displayed of the left side of the browser page... now they are not. I can still see and access my bookmarks if I go into manage bookmarks. But, I can not figure out how to get them displayed as before. Would appreciate any help anyone can provide. Thank in advance.

p.s. I did post this earlier but it was in the middle of the night, so nobody saw it.

Due to a rebuild, I just reinstalled Firefox and sync'd up to regain my bookmarks. In doing so, I ensured that the Bookmarks Toolbar is always present. But as you can see from the attached image, while the bar is there, there are no icons. When I move my cursor over the bar, nothing appears, nor can I click on anything. When I click on my Bookmarks icon and toggle to the Bookmarks Toolbar folder, I see all of my prior settings there.

I have subsequently uninstalled and reinstalled. Same result.

Any ideas?

I thought I had two different accounts. Home, with my personal email and work, with my work email. My work computer crashed a few months ago, and out IT department was able to recover all my bookmarks, but it wasn't easy, so I was told. I decided to do what I do at home and that was to create an account for work, which I did. I now have an account for home with it's own bookmarks, and email, and a work account with it's own bookmarks and totally different email. I recently got a work phone. In the process of setting it up I synced it up with my work account. when I came home tonight I got online and all my work bookmarks were on my home computer. How did this happen? Now I don't have my home bookmarks. I tried signing out and signing back in with my home account, but no luck. This is very frustrating especially since they are two totally different accounts. SO, how do I get my home bookmarks back on my home computer? Thanks

When I bookmark something, I often apply tags. I have noticed that when I use a very long tag, combined with many tags, it prevents tags being used. For example, the word "internationalization" prevents tags being stored.

A bookmark that is tagged like this: one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen internationalization will not have its tags saved.

However, this is stored successfully: one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen internationalization

This also stores successfully: 'one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen'

I think this started after my most recent upgrade - I'm currently on 108.0.1, but I suspect it was an upgrade from 107, not just from 108.0 (I use PortableApps and only upgrade through PA, and it takes time for PA to prep new versions of app, so sometimes short-lived versions are skipped, and the 108.0.1 changelog only mentions one tiny bug fix). When trying to access a bookmark or folder on my bookmarks toolbar, nothing happens (color change or tooltip on hover, nor clicking) unless the mouse is at the very bottom edge of the button area, well below where the icon and text are. Is this happening to anyone else? I use the bookmarks toolbar heavily, so this is very annoying.

Hi, thanks a lot in advance and sorry to bother. :)

I have a couple of desktop/laptop devices synced with the same account. When I make a backup/export of my bookmarks in each device (.json/.html files) the checksums of those files don't coincide between devices. Nevertheless, if I open the exported HTMLs in Firefox and save them as Text Files, the resultant files have all the same checksum (sha256sum), i.e., are all the same.

Is this how it is supposed to be? Or should my bookmarks JSON/HTML files be exactly the same in all devices and something is wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance.

I cannot rename saved Bookmarks. I can go through the process but after finishing, the Bookmark is NOT renamed in the Bookmarks list.

This is very inconvenient. This needs to be fixed. I am using a Samsung Galaxy A12 phone.

Another unrelated question is concerning coping and pasting URLS. I can't paste them elsewhere but I guess that needs to be addressed separetly.

Hello,

I am a computer technician currently trying to write a small python script that will clear a users cache, cookies, and history in Firefox on a Mac.

From what I can tell, both the history and bookmarks for a user is saved in one file named "places" (specifically under "/Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/[jargon].default-release/places.sqlite")

Is there a way to clear just the history for a user, that doesn't go through the browser GUI? I would really like to avoid mixing CLT with Selenium or something of that sort with python.

Any information is welcome!

Thank you,

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, I am sorry to have to go to such lengths to figure out how I can fix this error. Today I opened up Firefox to watch some simple youtube videos, then I come to realization that all my bookmarks I have are gone. I quickly check up on them to find out that they are still there, which was a relief for me. I searched through multiple different problems and solutions, but none of them worked for me I can try to send you an image of what has now become of my bookmark toolbar. I tried restoring the defaults, as well as restarting my PC, or checking if I have the toolbar visible. I sincerely hope you can help me fix my problem.

Yours sincerely, Oliver Wiechert
