I had to replace my motherboard and install a new operating system on a new hard drive. Windows 7.

The old hard drive has windows 7 OEM and would not boot with the new MB.

I need to recover the bookmarks from the old HD which is connected to the new MB.

I can access the folders. I just can't find the bookmarks. 

I need them to be complete because I used hints in the bookmarks to be able to sign in to some sights that I can't remember.

Help Please!

I am not used to the bookmarks being in a panel either on the left or right of the FF window. I use tabs for places I visit and use Roboform to complete the entry to a particular website of my choosing. All the bookmarks I desire are in Roboform and rarely use FF bookmarks. Firefox is a wonderful tool and I use it exclusively, but sometimes they do come up with something that is intrusive to the way one is used to working. I personally do not like their bookmarks ad where the update has placed them.

I have Firefox 23.0.1.

I am trying to import Firefox bookmarks from a json file on another disc, and merge these with my existing bookmarks.

I only have options to import an html file. I can also use restore to bring in the file, but this will overwrite my current bookmarks, and I want to merge the two.

There must be a place on my Mac (Sierra version 10.12.5) that Firefox stores browsing history. All of my browsing history was accidentally deleted after my computer was backed up to Time Machine, and I want to use Time Machine to restore the browsing history. But I don't know where the browsing history folder is, and neither did Apple support.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox Nightly and it just updated to 84.0a1 (2020-10-30) (64-bit). With this update, the "Other Bookmarks" folder appears on the Bookmarks Toolbar. It's situated on the far right, after the 2 right arrows that show the rest on the bookmarks from the toolbar. I've looked into the settings to see if this new addition can be hidden or removed, but I couldn't find anything. Can somebody tell me how I can hide it ?

Thank you, Flavius

How can I find/restore inadvertently deleted Bookmarks Folders, Bookmarks, and Bookmarks Toolbar Bookmarks?

Hello,

I have a long term, normally used instance of Firefox 19.0.2 (Windows 7).

I wanted a separate instance of Firefox. Using IE, I downloaded and saved a setup file of 19.0.2 into a specific folder, I installed it into that folder.

Upon opening it from that folder, it had the Bookmarks, etc. from the original instance. Stupidly, thinking it was a separate installation, I deleted the Bookmarks and Bookmarks from the Bookmarks Toolbar.

Is there any way to recover the Bookmarks? Where are the Bookmarks/Toolbar Bookmarks saved; and what is the file name? I have a good recovery program, Recuva, from CCleaner.

I have run a deep scan with it. There are some recoverable files. But, what am I looking for, and where/how do I insert them if recovered? Is there any hope (a gazillion folders and Bookmarks)?

Then, whether recovered or not, how do I create separate instances of Firefox, that do not share any files? I don’t mind if the add-ons/extensions, and scripts are duplicated, but I can do that separately.

Also, “firefox.exe –p”, which worked previously, now will not work. The error message is:

"Windows cannot find ‘firefox.exe’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."

Thanks,

Steve

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...

I used to make a backup or saved copy of my favorites with internet explorer on my XP computer and the result was an easily opened list of all my links in order. Recently I installed firefox and I now tried to do the same thing. I did a backup to my bookmarks and could not open the file initially. After some searching I was able to open the file with several programs but all of the results were useless. I kept getting a document with tons of data from the extreme left to right side of the screen in no format or in a usable list. So how can I get the backup or a saved copy in microsoft windows works (not word) processor like all my other windows XP documents are in?

There are many sites I visit regularly and would like a 2 line bookmark toolbar, (entirely separate from regular bookmarks that are stored in a different area and in their own folders). The bookmark toolbar is very convenient, but would be far better if it could be increased to 2 or even 3 rows, to avoid the hassle of clicking through folders to find my most commonly visited sites. Using Firefox 70.0.1 on Windows 7 desktop computer, 64 bit. Thanks to anyone who can solve this!
