Hi, I've had Firefox 64 bit running on Windows for a while and recently was given a newer machine where I installed a newer version of the OS. I put the old HDD's as slaves in this new machine. So the old FF is in the slave machine.

I have also installed new Firefox on this new Win10 LTSC, but when I go looking in my now slave HDD I can see FF, but cannot see any bookmarks. Additionally, when I run the FF executable in the old HDD it still runs the new FF, without the old bookmarks.

So how can I extract the old bookmarks on the older FF? Without withdrawing the now slave HDD and making it a master again? As it's now missing most of the OS files too.

Thank you!

I have had to create a new Firefox on one of my computers. I have imported my bookmarks, but there appears to be no way to import the Bookmark Toolbar. This is tiresome. So I wonder if I can use Sync to do the job? My Bookmark Toolbar exists on my other PC. Is it safe simply to use Sync to do the job of importing the Bookmark Toolbar to my new Firefox? I use Windows 10.

Hello,

Sometimes I want to know which bookmark folder I've saved a particular bookmark in. I don't necessarily want to go to that site, I just want to know where I've saved it. The options provided do not include which folder it's in. The list offered is: name, tags, location, most recent visit date, visit count, added, last modified. How can I which folder I put it in?

Thanks, Andre'a

Hello All, I recently had to start up my brand new MacBook Pro up in "Safe Mode" to verify an unrelated problem. When I restarted my computer from safe mode, my Bookmarks were either gone completely or "empty" and I was apparently in a newer version of Firefox. I then trashed my Firefox application and tried to restore an older version via Time Machine and after I copy it to my Applications folder I get the message that I am trying to open an older version of firefox and then doesn't allow me to do that. When I followed the option to their extents, only the new version with NO bookmarks shows up.

How can I get my old bookmarks back?

Thanks bc

Backup/Exported Bookmarks files (.json/.html) aren't the same (checksum) between Synced devices

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 added an Add-On to try it called [by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox] Notes by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox which I have since removed as the Add-On has corrupted my Bookmarks. When I click 'Show Sidebars' my Bookmarks don't show (thought they are there) but it's as though the font is white making it impossible to see them.

If I click Bookmarks I can see them and/or when I click on Manage Bookmarks that option opens and I can see all my Bookmarks. This only happened after I added "Notes by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox" Add-On. I was thinking there could be possibility it could have been caused by changing the appearance to Dark Mode, (for example Facebook or Twitter, etc).

There must be a better fix then to refresh / restore Firefox to its default settings as I have about 90 Tabs Open

Subject line says it mostly. Normally, when you click a bookmark button it replaces the content in current window by default. I am aware I can hold CTRL or SHIFT down to launch a new tab or window respectively. I would however like to be able for certain bookmarks to set the default launch behavior, similar to setting the HTML target=_blank tag on a link. I need certain bookmarks to always launch into new windows (and even nicer would be to launch into a conveniently resized window to left or right of my current window). The idea is that there are frequently times when the content of both windows is needed at same time.

Hi,

So, like a proper idiot I forgot to export my bookmarks!!!

I no longer have access to the computer, but I did remove the hard drive.

I was wondering if there is a way for me to copy any files, or folders from the original hard drive which I have connected via a usb dock, into the new computer?

Many thanks,

Is there a way to delete a bookmark from the book-mark drop-down window (accessed from triple horizontal bar/right side of browser) but retain the same book-mark that had been saved in a folder created in Other Bookmarks? I discovered that when you delete a book-mark entry from drop down menu, the same entry is also deleted from its saved location in Other Book Marks. I was trying to reduce number of unsorted entries in drop down menu while saving (and retaining) the same link in the Other Bookmarks section and folder. I want to continue using the sorting and discrete folder saving possible with the Other Bookmark section but clean up the clutter in the unsorted bookmark section.
