As the subject line says, I want to determine the date that I added a specific bookmark. This was incredibly easy on my old Windows 7 machine with an older version of Firefox. You just clicked on "Bookmarks" at the top of the screen, then "Show All Bookmarks", "Views", "Show Columns" (ensuring that "Added" was checked) — et voilà, there it was!

Now, however, no matter what I try, I can't seem to figure out how to do this. And searching for an answer online has proven useless, as well. The only instructions I've seen refer to how I used to do it with my earlier version of Firefox.

Has the date that a bookmark was added also been deprecated/deleted from Firefox (along with the greatly missed cookie handling of yore)? Or am I just missing something obvious?

If anyone could tell me how to find the date I saved a bookmark, I'd be in your debt.

Thanks in advance.

The normal way to delete a bookmark is to click the bookmark (which loads the page), then click the three dots on the right of the url field after the page loads, then click the "edit this bookmark" icon, then select "remove bookmark". But a 404 redirect does not land on the bookmarked page and there is no "edit this bookmark" icon.

How do I delete a bookmark to a page that no longer loads? I want to keep other bookmarks intact.

Hi community,

Somehow the Other Bookmarks folder showed up at the end of my bookmarks bar. I am pretty sure it was not there yesterday. I assume that somehow I accidentally placed it there.

The problem is that I can't either move it, or remove it from there. When you select it, delete option is grey and not available. Does anyone now exactly how to remove it from the bookmarks bar?

Thank you people... :)

Hi - I signed out of a different Firefox account and can't get back in, as the password I have isn't correct. If I change my password, I may lose my bookmarks, etc. I exported the bookmarks to html and also backed them up (json). If I change my password, will I be able to restore the bookmarks using one of those backups? I backed up "all bookmarks." Does that include the bookmarks toolbar and mobile bookmarks as well as the bookmarks menu and other bookmarks? Thank you in advance!

Issue: the bookmark toolbar arrow (the one that shows bookmarks that don't fit on the toolbar) is gone from my browser, and the toolbar itself seems truncated (only like 7/8 of the toolbar is filled).

I didn't change any settings or installed any add-ons that could have to do with this. It just disappeared one day, I didn't even notice it at first.

What I tried:

  • I launched Firefox in safe mode, didn't fix it
  • I removed my userChrome.css file, didn't fix it
  • when I cut the bookmarks and paste them into the toolbar, the arrow shows, but when I relaunch the browser it is gone again

See photo for what it looks like (ignore the anonymous favicons, I changed them temporarily with userChrome to preserve privacy, but without userChrome the issue still stands).

Anyone has an idea what happened and how to fix this? Thanks.

I have version 85.0.1 (64 bit) on Win 10. I just created Bookmark folders and started moving individual bookmarks into the appropriate folders. How do I select multiple bookmarks so I can move a bunch at a time to it's folder? I tried CTL-CLICK but that doesn't select but rather opens the link. When I open "Show all Bookmarks it lists only the bookmark folders (which I can open and do multiple selection). But why aren't the bookmarks not in folders showing up? I can see them in to bookmark toolbar and in the >> sidebar. Have hundreds of bookmarks I collected- want to move some want to delete some. Selecting multiple for drag and drop would make my project go unbelievably faster.

Each successive bookmark I now save has a prepended number in parentheses, [ (21) ]. The number increases by the day.

If I, "restart Firefox with Add-ons disabled," I still get prepended numbers on my bookmarks.

Can I turn this off? What was the reasoning behind such a number?

If I save a second bookmark of the same url in the same day, I get the same number. In fact, any bookmarks saved in a particular day will have the same number. Rewinding the clock, day one would have been Sunday, Jan 17th.

The offer to speed up my Firefox should have included the info that in doing so, my bookmarks would all disappear. If anyone knows how to get them back, I'd appreciate the info. I'm disappointed in Firefox - unexpected outcomes should not be part of an update. While in theory I like the Firefox system better than Chrome, I have to go back to Chrome to protect myself from further "surprises".

In the most recent update notes, it's said that Firefox "now remembers your preferred location" for bookmarks. However, the location chosen now as my preferred is just some random folder. Is there a way to set the preferred location? Or at least set the browser to do what it did before, which is save to the last-used folder? Thanks!
