Dear Team of the Product Management,

could you please explain me and maybe also for other interested user the planning about the Bookmark management?

I studied information science, about ontologies and work in IT for 22 year, and am just wondering:

Tagging bookmarks is a recent information need.

Please why is tagging of bookmarks and the search for tags in Firefox Mobile not supported and the Bookmarks Editor in the desktop version is since maybe 20 years so stepmotherly dvceloped?

Your kind words about would be highly appreciated.

Kind regards York

Whenever I use the searchbar in the bookmarks manager, it always searches all of my bookmarks, but sometimes I might only want to search for that query within a specific folder. Is there any way to limit a bookmarks search to only a specific folder rather than the entirety of my bookmarks?

I imported my bookmarks from an HTML file but they are not showing even after I close and restart the browser. Where are my bookmarks? And furthermore, your instructions for importing them in the first place did not work for me because the sequence and pictures did not match what I saw in my browser. I played around with it until I found the import part. And yet, no bookmarks.

Firefox for iOS automatically adds webpages I view for the first time as shortcuts on the homepage. I used to be able to remove these by hold-clicking the shortcut and clicking Remove. That button is still there but appears to be broken as clicking it does nothing to remove these automatically-added shortcuts to webpages I’ve viewed a single time.

I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

We just upgraded to windows 10 and it has been a rocky road to normalcy. My IT department uses Quest for everything. Quest SMA and SDA along with Desktop Authority. The CIO decided they didn't like Edge and wanted to move to a new browser. They did this 2 days before we go live. The question is how do i make firefox import the Bookmarks. So many articles say try the adm admx files. Tried that..failed. They create a registry entry for it but there not used. I tried finding the file location but firefox has some odd profile naming that changes the folder name. That and the location from the articles doesn't have the file it says to open. As of now I am just lost. I'm not sure how to complete this task of adding bookmarks or the Home Page. I was able to get them setup as the default browser but without the bookmarks or favorite its all moot. We have over 300 users and they are about 3 weeks away from coming back to work. I need a solution or i will have to force them to use Edge(no one wants that even web sites hate edge.). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello helpers! I have lost my bookmarks and several add-ons after latest install (77.0.1). I can't find old profiles to use and restoring to an older bookmarks backup doesn't work either; I get an error message "unable to process the backup file - but it does at least see the last relevant version from 10.6.2020.

To compound the problem, whist working my way through several solutions offered on these forums, I hit the Refresh Firefox button, which created an Old Firefox Data folder on my desktop - but seems to only contains the new stuff after today's upgrade) AND I also reset my Firefox password and got the message that Personal Data will be lost so that has added to the problem. Basically a massive mess!

Can I revert to the older Version of Firefox or using an old computer backup or is there another way to fix this?? It's nearly 3000 bookmarks going way back to 2014 - I'd be gutted to lose it all.

I appreciate any help - thanks in advance! Nicole

Bookmark manager is quite good - the manual organization is simple, but I'm confused in same case over and over...

I'm pretty sure, I have some bookmarks already saved to somewhere. But I have a lot of bookmarks. And yes, I can search for some bookmark - the manager find them - I can click and all is running, but - where is the bookmark hidden ? In which folder ? Next time I want to go to bookmarks menu and select that bookmark directly... Not calling BM again and again...

This simple information is missing in searched bookmark, when clicked on them once.

It shows: - name - address - tags - keywords

BUT NOT WHERE IT IS... (?) The folder where it stays...

Do You think it is not important ? For Me sure...

Or I have overlooked something ? Maybe ?

Thank You.

Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.

Sincerely, AM

Hello Community

Do hope someone can help?

Have tried all suggestions in Support area on topic: Lost/Recover Bookmarks. Also spoke to Windows Support and was told to call Mozilla Firefox Technical Support. I've been unable to find a number.

I had a Windows update around the same time as a Firefox update, May/June, only realised all saved bookmarks prior to June 2020 have disappeared. This has never happened before.

Urgently need to find out if there's a method of retrievel or have it confirmed that all of these very important bookmarks are permanently lost.

Thank you in advance

Some sites are missing favicons making the toolbar useless if I have to use text to identify them. I quit using FF because of this about a year ago as all the solutions on here did not work. Seems as though FF could fix this internally as it is not a problem on Chrome, IE, Edge or any other browser I have used. Why can't FF fix what seems to be very simple problem? Came back and it is still a problem. Again all the listed fixes that I have to initiate, have not worked. Why can't FF fix this through an update. I am not the only one who has this issue and it is exclusively a FF problem. Not a computer expert but this seems to be a VERY easy fix via updates especially since it has been an issue for literally years. Don't want to go back to Chrome as I like all that FF stands for, but... Thanks for reading

Hello -

I'm looking to upgrade clients in my enterprise environment from x86 to x64. I've consulted the KB at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles and I'm wondering if there is a way to launch this profile manager at launch, or a way to import the bookmarks from x86 to x64. In my testing, I have not seen this Profile Manager launch automatically on first run of an install of x64.
