Hello,

I was a little surprised to see that my current computer hasn't reflected the updated bookmarks which I bookmarked on my other computer with being logged into my account as well which I thought would be the case after syncing Firefox on my current computer. I'm not too sure of how to get around this since I checked Firefox on my laptop which I used recently and had the recent bookmarks listed but not on my other computer where I'm on now. Hope you can help me figure out how to get around this outside of trying to sync my information which I haven't had much luck with. Thank you.

Items in my Bookmarks toolbar (and the overflow bookmarks list) keep rearranging themselves. I put them back in order, then every time I open Firefox, they rearrange again. I've read through and tried everything suggested in the discussions and articles except the refresh, with I'd prefer not to do if it's not absolutely necessary. Nothing else suggested has worked. Any help will be appreciated. I believe this started after the last Firefox update. This is getting frustrating to the point I'm ready to stop using Firefox altogether. Thank you!

Hi,

Due to issues with a windows update, my computer went through 2 clean installs recently. After the first one, I was able to download Firefox, log in, and sync all my previous extensions and bookmarks. However, after the second clean install, I just logged into Firefox and it did not bring up any of my previous bookmarks or extensions. Where did they go? How can I get them back?

Please help. Thanks,

When i click on the google maps icon (google uk home page>dots in top right hand conrner>google maps icon)or type google maps into the search field then click on the google maps link I end up on the Sheffield Hallam University log in page (a bookmark from a while ago). This has started happening in the last few weeks.

If I use Edge then everything happens as expected and google maps opens.

I have tried refreshing firefox and disabling add-ons, neither works.

Using Windows 10 home V20H2, upto date firefox.

Usually, when you close Mozilla Firefox or shut down your computer, you can restore the before closed bookmarks while you start again Mozilla Firefox. In my case, Mozilla Firefox automatically updated itself and I could not open again my bookmarks (the history was gone...). I had lots of pages that I still wanted to read and am looking for a way to find them back...

Same favicons for different web services running on one host

If there are several applications with their own web interface (web server on different ports) on a host (same IP address), the same favicon is always displayed in the bookmarks for all applications.

Example: On one computer there are several applications with their own web interfaces such as home automation, media server, network management, etc. The applications are addressed via different ports (https://mydomain.com:xxx). The correct associated favicons are always displayed in the corresponding browser tabs.

But when bookmarks are created for these applications, they all get the same favicon.

I can't see any regularity which favicon is chosen. At first I thought it was always the favicon of the application running on port 80. However, I have also managed other favicons depending on the order in which I created the bookmarks. But in the end all bookmarks always have the same favicon, because the favicons also change later after the bookmark originally had the right favicon :-(
