Hi All,

I want to access ABC News, then change to viewing NBC News, etc. I just want to go from one bookmarked site to another with the least amount of hassle - just like how the desktop version works.

Q #1) With android v81 I tap the menu 3dots, select Bookmarks dropdown, tap on the Bookmark name/URL, it opens but as a new tab (3 steps). I must eventually close this tab >Select tabs icon, tap X to close that tab, then select the tab I just left. This is now SIX STEPS. I just want one open tab and change that URL to other bookmarked sites. I can't find a way to do this, or setting to change.

In the previous version I would I would tap the address bar, it defaulted to viewing Bookmarks tab. I selected a bookmark and the page would open - Done. This was TWO STEPS.

Q #2) BOOKMARK ORDER: "We listened to what features you want...blah blah". Is there a way to reorder bookmarks? Our bookmarks migrated into v81 are not alphabetical, by date saved, by URL, or even in their order from the previous version. This is just odd. Does anyone know the criteria on how v81 reordered bookmarks?

The previous version put new bookmarks at the very bottom of the list. People hated this and asked year after for the ability to rearrange their order. It's a tiny ask, 60 minutes worth of code. Many just don't want to push their highly personal bookmarks through a server (Create account -Sync with PC). To get their list order Android users would remove all bookmarks then add them by one in the order they want, doing this several times a year as the list changes. Mozilla has allowed the reorder of Bookmarks in the desktop version since it's inception. So there's has to be an ulterior motive why they won't allow this with mobile devices.

Moving and Deleting Bookmarks for 'Other Bookmarks'

Why won't the bookmark in 'Other BookMarks' go away when I 'move' it (drag and drop) to where I want it in my saved bookmark directories? This is a copy not a move and I… (read more)

Why won't the bookmark in 'Other BookMarks' go away when I 'move' it (drag and drop) to where I want it in my saved bookmark directories? This is a copy not a move and I want a move function.

Why can't I delete a BookMark from 'Other BookMarks' without the same bookmark getting deleted where I sorted it (there is a link that shouldn't be there).

both these issues make it impossible to manage 'Other Bookmarks' and keep it tidy and minimal

I need to export a collection of Firefox bookmarks from an old Android tablet. The latest version of Firefox that will run on this system is 68.0.2, which apparently did not have the ability to sync bookmarks or any option in the settings to export bookmarks. I would be happy if I could get the bookmarks in an HTML file or a plain text file. Or perhaps if I knew the directory in Android where Firefox stores the bookmarks, then I could copy it to a desktop computer.

This tablet will only run Android version 4.4.2. If I could find a way to view the support forums from a date when version 68 was still supported, I am sure I could find the answer myself.

Thanks very much! Lloyd

I inadvertently created a duplicate of my Bookmarks Menu, the folder of which now resides at the bottom of my Bookmarks toolbar. I sometimes accidentally open it when the original is already open, and that creates confusion. I'd like to simply delete the duplicate folder -- is there any way to do that?

Reopening Mobile Bookmark Subfolders After Closing the Bookmark Menu

Hello, I have recently migrated to Firefox from Chrome on both my desktop and my mobile device. With the chrome mobile app, there is a basic function where once you have opened a folder or subfolder in the bookmark browser, the app remembers which subfolder that was, and reopens to that same subfolder when you open the browser again.

On the mobile Firefox app, it always boots you back to the highest level of the folders, outside even the desktop bookmarks folder. Which means that if I want to use my phone to and access bookmarks nested deep in my subfolders, I need to go >desktop bookmarks, >bookmarks toolbar, >Personal, >Stories. This is every time I open the bookmark browser and access bookmarks in this subfolder.

This is in contrast to the Chrome app, where it would automatically reopen to the >Stories subfolder.

Is there some way to attain this functionality on the Firefox mobile browser? It's very inconvenient, to the point that I am considering moving back to the Chrome app.

Hello. After a reinstallation of W10, I imported in Firefox the file "bookmarks.html" that I saved before this installation. Usually it works very well, but this time, there are no more bookmarks in my menu after the import than before ! It looks as there was nothing in my file Bookmarks.html, however I am sure that this file is complete because I verified it in Excel (.csv). What happens ?... Thank you by advance to the community !
