I'm really new to Firefox and having a little trouble customizing the appearance. On the bookmark toolbar, some "buttons" have icons that represent the website...google, for instance, has the blue square with "g" in the center, duckduckgo has the duck head icon. Some websites however don't automatically show an icon on the bookmark button. Some show nothing, while others show a dotted square. Is there anyway to set an icon for these buttons? I can do that using IE but can't seem to figure out how to on Firefox.

I am on a MAC. I had my LIBRARY window open because I use it daily, mostly for bookmarks.

I wanted to delete some specific history links in the large window (with columns like Name and Location, Visit Date etc). I did not notice that the highlighted place was in the left toolbar under History so I accidentally deleted HISTORY--- Today, Yesterday and ALL of April. This is a business computer and this is a BIG problem. I tried several times under Edit to hit UNDO but it did nothing.

Why would Firefox not have some warning box to tell you you are about to delete a large amount of info? And why is it not reversible?

Also I am on my computer EVERY day for hours and the most recent bookmark backup point was today AFTER the large deletion of info mentioned above. And then the next previous one was April 23. So 2 more questions-- 1--why has it not auto backed up in almost 10 days? I don't do any manual backups. 2--does this restore point also restore history?

I've decided to just get used to Firefox 29 instead of messing with add-ons and what not to make it look like it used to but one thing that is too ingrained is a favorites/bookmarks sidebar with one click. I just don't like the drop down menu. Is there a way to set the "Bookmarks" button to show the sidebar in one click?

After my laptop crashed, I am attempting to retrieve my bookmarks off my old hard drive (which is now an external). Nowhere in any of the package contents or folder locations are there any of the file types mentioned in other articles (.json, .sqlite), and the only profile information I can access leads me to a blank backup which was just created as I opened firefox for the first time. There are no visible backups of my bookmarks ever being automatically saved, as suggested. So, after wasting a large portion of my time trying to do what should be the simplest of procedures, where are the old bookmarks supposedly stored?

I am logged into my Google account which is associated with Feedly. The first time I downloaded it, I saw the icon. When I closed Firefox and reopened, it disappeared. I have since upgraded to version 17 and reset Firefox. When I initially installed the Feedly addon again, the icon showed up. After closing FF and reopening - it has again disappeared and I cannot find it in the options for the AddOn bar. Please help - I am looking for a way to remember to check my RSS feeds and this seems perfect!!
