76.0.1 Firefox 10.13.6 Mac os

I ran Malwarebyetes and in restarting, it took a long time, after which ALL my bookmarks were gone. I cannot use the import/restore b/c while it shows the bookmark dates, when click to restore it says "unable to import the process file" on ANY dare.

    WHen I restart computer, a red banner said toolbar and bookmarks won't display.THis can be caused by security software, read more....bla bla!
  I have sync and that doesn't restore anything-bookmarks or toolbar!!!

I called Apple and they said it was b/c they wanted me to upgrad os system to Catalina, which I am not willling to do yet!!

I also have an external hard drive and iCloud/time machine backups, but I can't get those to be accepted into the Firefox sidebar and toolbar--they just show up as quick view documents!!

Why the heck is there no phone support?!?!? Help!?!!

I want to change some of my bookmark favicons. I went online and found a few recommendations for extensions that purport to do that, but when I tried to access them, I got "This page does not exist", which I assume to mean that those extensions are obsolete. When I tried to find a solution on the support forum, I got "1900" responses. I went through about 50 of them and none had anything to do with changing favicons!

There are a couple of YouTube videos that address this problem, but I can't understand the speech of the authors, and, from what I did understand, the process advocated is complex. I assume this is a simple task. Am I wrong? Just looking for a simple list of instructions.

I have installed a new computer (Mac mini). I have synchronized with old computer (imac 2011). All bookmarks transferred successfully to new computer. In the right places etc (Bookmarks menu; Bookmarks toolbar etc ). All the headings in the toolbar are correct with all the bookmarks in the dropdown menus from the toolbar as before. The problem is when I go to ADD a New bookmark the old toolbar headings don't show up in the Add Bookmarks dropdown options. How do I add a new bookmark into a list of an existing toolbar heading or existing list from the toolbar ?

For the past two months, every time I click on my Outlook bookmark to get my emails, it never works the first time. You must always click a first time, then a second time. Hint: it's only with Outlook. All the other bookmarks work well.

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?

Two weeks ago I reloaded Windows 10 because of a suspected malware infection. This required me to reload my apps. After reloading Firefox the custom icons have disappeared from some, but not all of the toolbar menu items. Why? Rather, a little globe appears, which I'm guessing is a default icon. -- Why did some of the icons disappear while others did not? -- How do I remove the "little globes" as they're just taking up space and have no meaning -- Where do the custom items come from?

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!

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!

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.
