I did not make any changes to options. When I started today, I went to find a website from history and all my history from the day before was gone. AND have of the list space was full of bookmarks. How could bookmarks be in history? Why is my history gone?

Is there some keyboard command that was done by accident to cause this? This has never happened before.

My dad uses Chrome not Firefox. So anything he does should not affect my settings.

Is there a way to fix this? or to keep it from happening in the future?

Hi

For some reason, Firefox changes the order of bookmarks in the adress field. For instance, when I type "yout" to search among my youtube bookmarks, the most recents aren't the first ones suggested. I've noticed this 2-3 weeks ago and I still don't understand why that is. Does anyone know?

I want to sort all of my bookmarks in all folders and their sub-folders by name on one click automatically.

I don't want to sort my bookmarks folder by folder since I have tons of bookmarks organized in tons of folders. I looked up the help article "Sort your bookmarks to quickly find the ones you want", but it only shows how to sort individual folders automatically. So I tried to sort them all by multi-selecting all of my folders (no individual bookmark selected) and right-click to sort by name. And the option is unavailable (see image).

Could you include an one-click automatic sorting option in the future updates?

Since reinstalling Windows, I can no longer change my bookmarks in the order I want. Every time I try to put the bookmarks in order, the links jump back to a different position. However, not in an alphabetical order, but according to my own rules, completely confused. So I have to look for everything now. What can trigger something like that?

We have one desktop with two users. Previously, we were both able to have individual/different Firefox bookmarks in the toolbar when we each logged into our separate desktop accounts. Now, Firefox is only showing one persons bookmarks on both desktop accounts at sign on. How can we get back to our own individual/different bookmarks on Firefox?

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...

Why has firefox deleted my bookmarks, It's getting as bad as microsoft. Don't ask just screw us over and no answers to fix it. Problem is this bullshit has been going on for years and it is still a problem,why can't this be fixed or stopped. I now have to try and find how to get all my log ins for banking and alot of other important sites. I see below you have some educated guesses, well I don't need guesses I need the problem fixed. I fear downloading from your site as it might destroy more of my system. I don't see no dam window at the top.

How can I get my bookmarks back and stop it happening again.Please.

Is this possible? I like the sleekness of not having the bookmarks bar but it would be very helpful to have it popup when I open a new tab only. (I use this feature in Brave browser, but I prefer Firefox)

I searched the entire web and looked for add-ons and couldn't find a solution. I have attempted to create a custom chrome css file but that didn't work.

What can I do?

edit: added question mark to title.

Hello there,

I am having issues restoring a profile for an user. Long story short, there was some malware messing with the computer, and in the process of quarantine and cleaning the machine out, the Firefox Profile got deleted. I was able to recover the Profile folder, and I see all the files and folders there (places.sqlite, bookmarkbackups, cookies.sqlite, etc.)

I have been following the process of restoring the profile, (copying and pasting those files on a new profile for example). However, every time I move all the files back, and open Firefox, it creates a places.sqlite.corrupt, and a couple of other 'corrupt' files. And none of the bookmarks or any other info get restored.

Any advise? Thanks in advance!

I have the most recent Firefox and the most recent Windows. I cannot alphabetize my favorite websites. I have added everything to the "Other bookmarks" tab and I cannot find anywhere to automatically alphabetize my favorites. I click on show all bookmarks and add folders in an effort to alphabetize but they don't even show up when I go into the "Other Bookmarks" tab.

1) How to alphabetize 2) How to add folders

Thanks!
