I recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox on my Mac and successfully imported all data, bookmarks etc. However I cannot figure out how to ADD a new bookmark to an existing folder. Every page I read about bookmarking fails to show how this is done. In Chrome its simple since the drop down menu allows the user to view every folder, but in Firefox I don't see how to do this. Furthermore, when I go to Bookmarks>Manage bookmarks I don't see any of my folders..PLEASE show me an EASY way to do this. Thank you

Subsequent name changes for home screen shortcuts on Android

While adding a website shortcut to my home screen on Android, I changed the name (to be shown on the home screen). I later decided to use a slightly different name, so I removed the shortcut and added it again, entering the new name. Nevertheless, the shortcut is now always added with the original custom name. This is also the case when I leave the name unchanged in a later attempt. I get the same results with multiple sites. I get the same results after closing Firefox, restarting my phone and emptying the Firefox cache. Even thought the shortcut on the home screen is probably not actually a bookmark, I tried bookmarking the site, and changing the name of the existing bookmark - with the same results. Is there a way I can choose a different name for the home screen shortcut, or this a bug? Background: I am now manually adding shortcuts to my home screen after getting a new phone (Pixel 7a). I had have mostly the same shortcuts on my previous phone (Pixel 3a XL). The shortcuts were kind-of(!) transferred to my new phone: they appear in the same home screen folders as on my old phone, but gray. When I try to open them, I get the message: "Couldn't restore shortcut because app doesn't backup and restore". Is there a way to transfer (all) home screen shortcuts? If not, please consider adding support for backup or automatic migration.

I have used Firefox for years. Yesterday, somehow "Pocket" login is all I can see on the bookmarks drop down menu and my bookmarks toolbar is blank. I can see the toolbar, but nothing is on it. I disabled the Pocket add-on, selected the toolbar and bookmarks to Always Show. None of the suggestions I found in the community have helped. I do not have a Customize option in the "hamburger" menu as I have seen in recommended.

I have gone into Settings and deselected everything Pocket.

I have to go into the menu, which shows "recent" bookmarks, and then have to search the bookmarks.

How can I get my bookmarks back on the toolbar and get rid of Pocket. Thank you!

Using Firefox on desktop, Windows 11. I am a long term Firefox fan/user.

My problem is I cannot find anywhere an easy method to add a shortcut on my Home Screen (which has now been a FF feature for some considerable time).

I am sure there was something available to do this in a prior version some time back. If I search the internet, I only come across articles describing how to do it on Firefox Android.

I know I can manually edit a box on the Home Screen to create what I need.

Sometimes new web sites that I visit appear in the boxes and I can then pin them in place - but the behavior around this is very erratic and unreliable - seems like random chance for an icon to appear on the home screen for a newly visited site. If this was more consistent, I could work with that.

BUT - where is the **intuitive** option??!!

I should be able to right-click on a tab and select "Add to Home Screen".

As simple as that.

Or drag and drop a link, or tab to the home screen - but this just opens the link. I have tried everything obvious that I can think of.

Anyone?

Many thanks :)

The update to version 123.0 seems to have an issue. When I open a private browsing window, the bookmarks bar does not show. When I select always show, which is already selected ... it will show the bookmarks bar ... but if I go to a site or open a new tab it disappears again unless I select always show again, or hit ctrl shift b ... A fix would be great. Thanks so much

I recently installed windows on a new solid state hard drive, and did a fresh install of firefox, but I forgot to manually backup my bookmarks. The old install is still on the old windows hard drive, is there a way for me to move them onto the new install? I'd prefer to not have to rebuild the whole list from scratch!

Good afternoon. Recently, bookmarks added via iPad have been added to the "mobile bookmarks" folder. Previously, when adding a bookmark, I clicked on the "Edit" button, chose the path - now the button for applying the new path has disappeared there. When viewing the list of bookmark folders on the ipad, the "mobile bookmarks" folder does not show at all (only when viewed from a computer).

Screen - there is no "apply" button.

Hi,

I wish to provide a co worker with access to some websites (and provide the site passwords), this will involve - from what I can see setting up a separate FF profile (that we both sync to - by using a Firefox Account) on my PC, somehow copying the bookmarks and passwords from my general profile into a new 'co worker' profile, the co worker (via sync) would then see the bookmark, and then hopefully also have the password available.

I can see how to export/import all my bookmarks, or have her sync to my 'general' FF account quite easily, but I only want to give her access to work related bookmarks and PWds.

Any thoughts appreciated.

I am trying to edit my bookmarks, deleting those no longer needed, etc. However, I now have several versions in my bookmark folders, an up to date one, an original one, and an in-between one. They seem to show up randomly. Why is this happening? If I delete or edit a bookmark, can't it stay edited or deleted?
