My motherboard died and I need to transfer all of my Firefox data to new system. Old hard drive is accessible. Especially need passwords I cannot remember! I copied logins and got those, and copied old profile data to new system,but passwords and logins do not show up. Being old and not very bright (obviously) I didn't record some passwords and don't remember them!

I was switching my browser from Brave, a chrome based browser, back to Firefox because Brave doesn't can't run some of the stuff my uni learning management system (LMS). I tried importing my browser bookmarks and passwords to Firefox but the importing feature on Firefox doesn't show Brave as one of the browsers it can take the data from. I want to know if there's anyway I can fix this or if there's no hope for importing data from chromium browsers to Firefox.

This morning my option to display book marks doesn't seem to be there. I can display or hide the toolbar, but the actual display on the wide of the screen does not seem to be there and I can't figure out how to get it back. Did Mozilla change things or am I just old? thanks. brian

I'd like to have, in my one firefox account, a 'private' profile with my private life bookmarks and a 'work' profile with my work life bookmarks. However, this doesn't seem to work. I open firefox with work profile and see my work bookmarks, then I close and reopen with private profile and see my private bookmarks, then I close and reopen again with work profile and now I still see my private bookmarks instead of my work bookmarks. Firefox just unsolicitedly takes the private bookmarks over to the work profile. This can't be how it's supposed to be, right? Because what would be the point of having different profiles? I hope you can help me with this.

Hallo, ich hoffe, es kann mir auch auf deutsch geantwortet werden. Ich habe zwei Probleme: Ich wollte Lesezeichen und angelegte Ordner löschen. Diese sind dann auch für sehr kurze Zeit verschwunden, tauchen aber dann wieder wie aus dem nichts auf. > Wie kann ich Lesezeichen und Ordner dauerhaft löschen? Ein weiteres Problem ist die Sortierung der Lesezeichen und Ordner. Nach jedem Öffenen von Firefox ist alles unsortiert geordnet. > Wie kann ich das einstellen? Alle beiden Probleme tauchen erst seit kurzer Zeit auf. Vorher lief das reibungslos. Vielen Dank, Dirk Baltes

Hi, I have seen instructions on the Google search on how to do this but the instructions don't line up with the current version of Firefox. YouTube videos are all about using code which is beyond me. There must be a piece of software (app) or some other simple way to do this. Has anyone found a way yet?

Thanks, Pete

I mistakenly closed a Firefox desktop window with several thousand tabs in it. (Yes, I know, "several thousand"). Tried to restore it after restarting my box by going to: CTL+SHIFT+H > Import and Backup > Restore > [date] My configuration is here: http://paste.c-net.org/ComboRound.

Firefox normally responds with: "This will replace all of your current bookmarks with the backup. Are you sure?" Clicking "OK" leads to nothing. Firefox just does becomes unresponsive for maybe 20s and then apparently aborts the command with no message at all.

I have no doubt that this is due to the massive number of tabs involved, even though the cached tab-file only weighs 630kB. How can I recover those tabs even if it's in a piecemeal manner and using command line in terminal ? Thank you.

I recently reinstalled Firefox after doing a full Windows reinstall on my PC. Since then, my bookmarks are not displaying on the bookmarks toolbar. I've "refreshed" Firefox from the control panel, rebooted my PC, and reinstalled Firefox. I've also moved the bookmarks from the toolbar folder in the bookmark manager and then put them back. Any suggestions?

Just today 7/17/21 my bookmarks toolbar disappeared but I was able to restore it. But all the saved bookmarks in the bookmarks toolbar that always appeared in Bookmarks Toolbar don't appear in the Bookmarks Toolbar column. AND when I try to add bookmarks to the bookmark toolbar a circle with a line through it appear preventing me from adding bookmarks. Couldn't find any solutions online in Firefox Help websites. Does anyone have a solution to restore saved bookmarks to bookmarks toolbar and add new bookmarks like I have always done? Thank you.

I do not use the sync function to keep my bookmarks up to date on separate computers. I have a location on a server that I can access from any of my machines. Usually I import and export to html bookmark file.

I have organized my bookmarks into various folders. When I attempted to update one of my boxes, all the bookmarks were removed from the folders and placed in a huge list in Other Bookmarks. The folder structure did not change, but all the folders were empty.

I tried to use a json file as an alternative, but this also had the same result.

I run Debian Linux on all my machines, if that matters.

What could be the problem?

Thanks in advance.

JUST SWITCHED FROM WIN 7 TO WIN 10. I SELECTED ALWAYS SHOW BOOKMARKS TOOLBAR, BUT ONLY A FOLDER WITH THAT NAME APPEARS IN THE TOOLBAR INSTEAD OF ALL THE BOOKMARKS IN THAT FOLDER SPREAD OUT ACROSS THE TOOLBAR, WHICH IS WHAT I WANT. HOW DO I GET THAT TOOLBAR TO STAY OPEN AND VIEWABLE HORIZONTALLY?

WIN 7 FIREFOX HAD A "VIEW" BUTTON IN A TOOLBAR AT THE TOP. I USED THAT BUTTON TO SELECT VIEWING ALL MY BOOKMARKS IN FOLDERS IN A COLUMN AT THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN. THIS IS CRITICAL FOR MY WORK BUT I HAVEN'T FOUND ANY WAY TO DO IT, NOR COULD I FIND AN ARTICLE DEALING WITH EITHER OF THESE BOOKMARKS ISSUES.

(Sorry for all the caps. Vision issues make it easier for me to type that way.)
