The mobile bookmarks folder is nowhere to be found on the desktop app. When I bookmark a page on mobile, Firefox desktop doesn't show it in the "all bookmarks" menu, I tried searching but it doesn't find it. The mobile app doesn't show it either, it only shows the "desktop bookmarks" folder and the single pages that I have bookmarked on mobile. I have attached some screenshots that better explain this issue. I would be grateful if someone could help me.

I just did an upgrade to 81.0.2. All of my bookmarks disappeared. Fortunately I was able to retrieve the last window but I am unable to create new bookmarks. Whether I right click on the tab to bookmark or Ctrl+D to bookmark, I get a window that says New Bookmark with options of Save or Cancel. However, the only option I can choose is Cancel. This is not good.

Whenever I try to add a bookmark in FF (81.0.2, 32-bit), the default folder for the bookmark is "Other Bookmarks", with the option to save the bookmark to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder (which is my preference).

How can I get FF to default to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder when saving a bookmark?

I have searched and tried everything, but I cannot delete old bookmarks. I have tried to click on the blue bookmark star, delete from the edit tab, open all Bookmarks and try to right click and delete. Nothing happens, but I can add new bookmarks. The bookmarks window does not have an organize tab to manage the links that way either. Is there a glitch in the system for macbooks?

How can I get back the bookmarks that were deleted on the recent upgrade? I've tried system restore to the day before the upgrade, but the folder is empty and the new "bookmark" process is a mess. I'd hate to lose the many references stored in the previous collection.

I need to backup my bookmark from Firefox for Android. To this end I am syncing them with my desktop Firefox on Ubuntu. The bookmarks appear as Mobile Bookmarks. Now, when I export the bookmarks with the bookmarks manager, the Mobile Bookmarks are surprisingly NOT included.

Is there a way to export the Mobile Bookmarks, either on Android or Desktop?

(I am about to prepare a number of tablets for education puposes.)

PLEASE, someone tell me my old bookmarks are living somewhere on laptop.

I deserve the answer to be NO bc I did not take any steps suggested by Moz, did not try refresh, did not even set up a profile b4 trying to install previous version (b4 82.0). Years worth of bookmarks are gone.

Used help topics to try the Import/Export-Restore Bookmark option. However the only json Mozilla extension I could find was related to my last attempt.

Running Wins 10-Mozilla/Firefox updated to 82.0 this morning. After the update my screen began to flicker and pull up sections of page in dark black. After verify the issue was with Moz I tried to revert back to older version. I was frustrated bc of the screen issues and as stated-did NOT do anything strongly suggested b4 going to previous version.

Although I chose previous version (64 bit) I actually ended up with a newly installed 82.0 However all bookmarks still gone & just icing on cake the flicker is still there.

Any help would mean to world. Thnx

How do I contact Mozilla Firefox to ask if I'm able to access to my Firefox profile on their cloud server?

Windows 10 would not update so I contacted Microsoft Support and a technician spent two days trying to various methods to get the updates installed on my computer. After several failed attempts it was determined a Windows "reset" was needed. The reset stated it would uninstall apps but save user data. However, it appears the reset uninstalled and wiped my profile off the computer.

I've already asked a previous question using the Mozilla Firefox support section and verified the profile is in fact gone. No backups are available to rollback using Firefox and the backup profiles in the "Windows.old" and "Windows.old(1)" both contain saved profiles from after the reset.

It sounds like my last option is contacting Mozilla directly to verify my account information and see if they can access my profile on their cloud server?

So how does someone do that? Thanks

HI When I opened Firefox this AM there was a an alert message in a red box saying basically that Firefox could not access my bookmarks. I tried to restore an old backup but although the dates were there there was no data.

I tried importing my bookmarks from Safari with no success. I did enable full disk access to Firefox prior to attempting the import to no avail.

I did export my Safari bookmarks to my desktop but have had no luck importing them into Firefox...

Help would be much appreciated... I do run Malwarebytes in Firefox and have for years.

I'm just trying to automate how users can open firefox and have the bookmarks toolbar show up and have my two folders of bookmarks added. I can't find anything online for how to do something that should be simple. I don't care if it's through GPO, modifying the mozilla.cfg, or any other way. I just can't find anything online for how to do this.
