Hello everyone, So I have a problem when I create a folder in my bookmark bar. I create a folder by category (unnamed for aesthetics). Once I have classified my favorites in these different folders after reopening Firefox, all my favorites are in a single folder. I specify that all these favorites were mostly imported from Chrome but that the problem persists with favorites added from firefox

I use the the bookmarks toolbar extensively, I have nested folders in the toolbar. Recently one of my folders disappeared, I blame my wife but it could have been me... I am hoping it got dragged to another folder but have not been able to find it yet. I used the "show all bookmarks" page and searched and found one of the links in the missing folder but I am unable to tell where the bookmark is stored in my hierarchical organization. Can anybody give me some pointers on finding my missing folder?

Thanks!

I took my computer in last week to get a newer version of windows installed. I had so many bookmarks on firefox that I used for work and after finding the old bookmarks data on my desktop the most recent version is from April. Is there a way to find the most recent bookmarks from this month so that I can restore them?

As a researcher and writer I'm constantly on the web, and have many downloaded book marks that were organized by folders on the Menu bar. But this old laptop seems to crash frequently when I'm using Firefox. After the most recent crash most of the folders had vanished - three did not.

How can I restore those missing folders to the menu bar? Redoing them is a possibility, but would take a great deal of time.

Thanks,

DMS

Hi,

Recently I noticed this issue:

1. I start Firefox. 2. I click on a bookmark which is on the bookmark toolbar. 3. The page seems to initiate navigation to that bookmark, but eventually stays (it never navigates). 4. I click again on the same bookmark. 5. Then, Firefox navigates to it.

I tried disabling Addons and disabling Hardware Acceleration, but it didn't help to fix the issue. This was suggested in this archived thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1245362

A similar issue happens when I'm already in GMail website and then click on another bookmark, but it refreshes the GMail instead of navigating to the other bookmark. (I hope to reproduce it soon and tell you the results.)

Using Ubuntu 18.04.

I have a series of 20 or so webpages that I like to read first thing in the morning. When I open Firefox and click on "Open All in Tabs" it creates a tab for each website, but won't load that website until I select the address bar and press enter. It doesn't happen all the time, but I'd say 95% of the time.

I recently refreshed Firefox, in the process of which all my bookmarks disappeared. When I try to manually add bookmarks, Firefox will not allow any bookmarks. When I attempted to add the information from the Old Firefox Data icon onscreen, it still refused to add or restore my bookmarks. I have checked my profile page and there is only 1 profile shown, so I cannot enable any other profile. Any ideas?
