Firefox recently updated automatically and when i went into the browser all my bookmarks are gone. i have tried restoring them from the most recent back up and they still don't load. i searched the blogs and go thru the troubleshooting options with no luck. this is very frustrating as i had tons of sites i don't visit often saved in the bookmarks which are not gone.

any assistance or guidance on how to get these back is appreciated.

Hi

Very annoying, cleaning all my bookmarks on my main computer, next morning I got a clutter of all bookmarks. Copy of bookmarks as well of folders.

Only way to solve it is to make new sync ID, or?

I noticed occasionally that an odd entry might come up every now and again in the address bar auto-complete, and they always had a little blue star. Turns out that's the "bookmarks" autocomplete option. Once I located one of them, I searched through my bookmarks to try to delete it, but it is not there. I actually went through and deleted all of my bookmarks in Firefox save two, and lo and behold there are still dozens, possibly hundreds, of "bookmarked" suggestions in the autocomplete bar. For instance, woot.com; I used to have it bookmarked, but since I haven't used it in months, I deleted it. Yet when I click on "bookmarks" in the address bar search, woot.com shows up among a dozen other entries which are clearly not in my bookmarks.

I checked my other browsers and cleared their bookmarks as well, although none of them had woot.com bookmarked as far as I can tell. I deleted browsing history older than 6 months and searched through both my bookmarks and history, finding no entries for this. I went to the Options menu, Privacy and Security, and Address Bar, and disabled "Bookmarks", and found that doing so DOES in fact prevent these supposed bookmarks from being suggested in the address bar when typing.

I'd like to be able to remove these old, outdated suggestions from my address bar while still leaving the bookmarked page search function working. Where is Firefox pulling these old bookmarks from? How can I delete them?

How to collapse bookmarks folders on Android ?

Hello all,

I have my bookmarks synced between android and desktop. On my desktop, I have literally hundreds of folders and subfolders.

When i'm on Android, and want to save a bookmark in one of my folders, the list of all folders and subfolders show up expanded (uncollapsed).

When they are expanded, it is almost impossible to find the folder i need. I have to scroll down dozens of "pages" of folders and subfolders everytime I simply want to bookmark a page in the right folder.

Please see the image attached. This is only a tiny portion of the list. It goes on like that for dozens of pages.

Is there any solution for that ?

The simple solution would be that Firefox collapses all the folders by default, and when we click on one it expands. Basically what is done on most systems of folder/subfolders.

Kind regards,

Adrien

Bonjour,

J'ai fait un nettoyage avec Avast aujourd'hui, et cela a complètement perturbé mes marque-pages : dans un premier temps, ils sont restés affichés mais je ne pouvais plus cliquer dessus. Puis, j'ai éteint mon ordinateur, et quand je l'ai rallumé, la plupart de mes marque-pages avaient disparu. Certains sont restés...

J'ai tenté de faire une restauration (datée d'aujourd'hui), mais cela m'a remis la même version.

Est-ce que vous savez ce que je peux faire ?

Cordialement, Clémentine

Hi. Over the past few weeks my bookmarks rearrange themselves. For example, I have several folders in Bookmarks Toolbar, and I alphabetize the bookmarks in each folder. Now they rearrange themselves, and frequently generate duplicates. When I try to delete a duplicate, both bookmarks are deleted. Help, please!

Hi, I try to orginize my bookmar sidebar. I have "Other bookmarks" folder in the bottom, and try to drag it to top, but firefox creates a copy of folder instead of moving it. Also, I erroneously drag "Bookmark menu" and firefox create a copy of it inside "Other bookmarks" folder. It looks like cycle reference - when I click on "Bookmark menu" inside "Other bookmarks" I any time see again "Other bookmarks" and "Bookmark menu" inside it. Looks like nightmare! How can I fix it? please help!

My old computer became incredibly slow and almost unusable. I managed to find my firefox profile folder using the %APPDATA% search and copy it to an external hard drive and connect it to my new computer. I wanted to keep my bookmarks, extensions, and logins, so I followed this:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_copying-files-between-profile-folders

But nothing changed on Firefox on the new computer. Going back to my old PC will be incredibly tedious, so I am hoping having moved my old profile folder to my new PC I have done everything I need to. Any help would be appreciated.

PS I am at work and don't have immediate access to my computer.

How do I save the same bookmark in multiple folders? (Sometimes it's hard to remember what folder I put a bookmark in: LOTS of folders & some bookmarks are ambiguous/could go in more than one folder; so much easier to find quickly if I had that option.)

Suddenly, my favorites are displayed one the main toolbar, and the favorites toolbar remains empty. Very annoying as the main toolbar does not leave much spaces for favorites. The favorites toolbar remains stubbornly empty, and I do not find any way to correct this strange behaviour.

Hello, I reinstalled the Firefox application, I wanted to log into my account but forgot the password, decided to restore it, reset the password, logged in and synchronized, but the synchronization did not give any results, all passwords and bookmarks disappeared. I saw a warning that each password is attached to a specific account and some data may not be restored, but I did not think that ALL data would be lost. Is there no way to bring them back? Thank you.
