Hi my friends,

My PC was broken so I re-installed the OS, then re-installed the Firefox browser, reset the password and signed in to sync the bookmarks, but then I noticed all of my important bookmarks collected in the last 5+ years are lost, is that a Firefox bug? Any way to recover them? Any advice would be much appreciated.

P.S. I'm a developer and bookmarks are very important to me, but this is the second time Firefox lose my bookmarks, the first time was caused by the Firefox Android app years ago, such experience is really frustrated, looks like I might have to give up Firefox and seek for a different browser as my primary browser.

Good day,

I have noticed that my Bookmark in the Bookmarks Toolbar sometimes requires 2 clicks to load Reddit.com. This is the only Toolbar Bookmark to exhibit this behavior. Every other bookmark I have loads the page after a single click of the icon on the Bookmark Toolbar. It appears the browser makes no effort to reach the Reddit site (could be an issue with Reddit.com, but it really appears FireFox just does nothing after the first click).

I first noticed this several months ago (maybe as long as a year ago), but assumed I was just missing the button. I have since ensured I carefully single click directly on the icon, no dragging, yet it still sometimes does not load Reddit after the first click. Very often it requires 2 clicks, as the first was totally non-responsive.

I have many Bookmarks on the Bookmark Toolbar that I use regularly. Reddit is the only one that exhibits this behavior.

How can I correct this behavior?

Thanks for your time, John

I've noticed recently that most of my older bookmarks aren't showing up as bookmarked. I keep track of manga by date updated and when I went to check them, nothing that I had bookmarked showed as bookmarked. Yes, I know this website sometimes does that and you just need to refresh the page. However it's not just from that site. It's almost every older bookmark I have. The ones I've done in the last few days show, but again the majority of the others from various sites don't. Any suggestions on how to make them show again? Thank you!

I had to do a factory reset of my computer a few months ago and reinstall Firefox. I have never found the bookmark folders that I used when I first got Firefox 88. Folders do not show up when I open the library, select bookmarks and manage bookmarks. Now I put all new ones in bookmark toolbar and they are a long list that is difficult to use. Is there a simple way to find and create folders so I can organize the bookmarks in toolbar and put them in folders?

I could not understand the information in the answers to similar questions. I need simple directions that are not too technical for someone without sophisticated computer skills. Thanks in advance.

In my question above, I have taken out 3 sentences but it still says I have too many characters. At first it said I had 11 more than the 255 limit; after deleting all that, it says I have 40 more. It won't make sense if I take out any more.

My bookmarks completely disappeared this morning. I have tried all the restore options and nothing is working. There are not even default bookmarks. Any time I try to access an old backup date it tells me it can't perform the function. And under the Bookmark menu there is no "Manage Bookmarks" at the bottom as suggested. Anyone else experiencing this. Any fix? It is Firefox 78.10 if thAt makes a difference.

Firefox 88.0.1 bookmarks - I cannot backup nor save them nor export them to an HTML file nor JSON. I do not have any Firefox current Bookmark restore options. Unfortunately, I do not have a Firefox sync copy of my current bookmarks. I think this problem might have occurred when I last updated Firefox two or three versions ago. Thank you in advance for your help; it will be appreciated. Good Luck.

I really hope someone can help. I'm on a macbook Air and kept getting a Widevine cdm plugin crash error message coming up. Some help online said I should move my profile folder onto my desktop and this would solve the problem. I did this and now upon opening firefox browser all my bookmarks have gone and I seem to have a new firefox browser as is never used. I have no gone back into 'About Profiles' and have two directories 'local' and 'root' listed. I have no idea how to restore my old firefox browser and bookmarks. Help!
