The mobile bookmarks folder is nowhere to be found on the desktop app. When I bookmark a page on mobile, Firefox desktop doesn't show it in the "all bookmarks" menu, I tried searching but it doesn't find it. The mobile app doesn't show it either, it only shows the "desktop bookmarks" folder and the single pages that I have bookmarked on mobile. I have attached some screenshots that better explain this issue. I would be grateful if someone could help me.

First, I have been using Firefox for years (from the beginning) and prefer it over all other browsers, except for one big thing: Bookmarks can't be sorted! Which is clearly a common problem for other users.

I understand you can sort bookmarks IF they are stored in folders. I do not want to, nor do I have time to store bookmarks in folders. Why can't Mozilla just fix this and make bookmarks sortable?????

I'm an old fart that just can't understand all the articles and how to items listed. I have just one simple need: How do I get Bookmarks in alphabetic order? Don't need categorizes, tags, or being asked if an article is helpful. All I want to know is How to get Bookmarks in alphabetic order like Internet Explorer and others do automatically? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Firefox updated yesterday and my bookmarks toolbar is now a sidebar instead of appearing as a thin bar that appears horizontally across the top showing my most used shortcuts to my bank, web mail, stores, etc. Now it is only the side bar. It is easier for my to use the toolbar across the top. How to I change this?

Good day!

Today I have opened Mozilla Firefox as usual and for some reason, everything was gone, by everything I mean EVERYTHING, no logins, no passwords saved, no bookmarks (I had probably around a thousand of them) no search history, nothing, I was trying to restore my previous session (with more than 100 tabs open... yeah I know) and nothing happened. For some reason the starting page was Yahoo instead of my normal Google search page... but I don't think it was that typical virus that replace everything with Yahoo and makes it impossible to change it back, because I was actually able to change the starting page back to google without any problems and my Malwarebytes didn't detect anything, so I am absolutely baffled as to what happened. I was trying the sync service but it doesn't work at all, nothing is restored. It's almost like someone broke into my account synced with everything and then erased it all from the server... is it even possible? Or could something overwrote or replace the Mozilla Firefox files on my computer? Where should I look for my original files, settings, saves, etc. on my computer, maybe something has been saved? Maybe I can find something? Please help, it is really painful to lose thousands of websites that I had saved and organized in many different bookmarks and folders.

Kind regards, Simon

Hey!

I just formated mywindows 10 pc, installed firefox, and logged in, and usually all my bookmarks and saved logins return after i log my firefox account on, but they didnt this time, im afraid i somehow overwrote the saved data, and now im without logins and bookmarks, i have googled and have tried going to archive and restoring, and i can only see a backup from today there, im afraid thats the one i made myself - its also saying 11 items, the backup, and i had way more, anyway when i click it, nothing happens.

I tried going to the firefox profile section, there was 2 profiles, none had my back up

Thx in advance!

I just did an upgrade to 81.0.2. All of my bookmarks disappeared. Fortunately I was able to retrieve the last window but I am unable to create new bookmarks. Whether I right click on the tab to bookmark or Ctrl+D to bookmark, I get a window that says New Bookmark with options of Save or Cancel. However, the only option I can choose is Cancel. This is not good.

FF lose all open and pinned tabs if I close the basic FF window first (for example, the private window or other window remains active)

Can anything be done about it? Manually re-creating all (more than few) pinned and lost tabs takes a really long time :(
