I can't figure out how to adjust the column sizes in the bookmarks library, it's frozen in place even after I've restarted my computer. I can click the top of the column to sort and I can add other columns (tags, visit count etc.), I just can't adjust the size.

Has anyone else encountered this problem and found a solution?

The following css used to work to remove items from Bookmarks menu:

#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#bookmarksMenuItemsSeparator{display: none !important;}
#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#organizeBookmarksSeparator{display: none !important;}
#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#menu_bookmarkAllTabs{display: none !important;}
#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#bookmarksShowAll{display: none !important;}

It no longer works in FF88. How to fix?

N.B. There wasn't a way to hide "other bookmarks" from the bookmarks MENU (This has nothing to do with the unrelated TOOLBAR issue, and the settings for that do not affect the menu)

Hi, I am asking for your help in addition to your patience as I am not a tech savvy person AT ALL.

That being said, Firefox installed a new version of the browser last night as it has done many times over the years I have used their browser. Nothing looked different until I wanted to bookmark a website.

When I click on bookmarks, it use to have the option which said (I think) "bookmark this page" which is how I have always saved pages. That option is no longer there, it is gone. I do not make changes on this computer on my own. I do not know what I'm doing and have no one to help so if I were to mess something up, I'm in trouble.

I did read through posts before asking for help, went to the help section Firefox has. I went to the page which says Troubleshoot & diagnose Firefox problems. As I went through each step, nothing changed so I reinstalled Firefox. Obviously it did not change the issue I am having.

I am very careful when I get online; I don't click on links, pop up ads, etc. ever! Is there anyone who can help as I do not know what to do, and again, have no one I can ask or go to for help. I am attaching a screenshot which gives the info on the version of FF I have. I thank you all for your time and am keeping my fingers crossed this is a simple fix!

My bookmark list is very large due to multiple imports from other browsers, syncing and not managing. There are currently well over 1200 bookmarks in my toolbar. I am trying to delete the majority of them. I have tried to backup and export before I do this, and have been unable. Firefox won't create any files. I have tried all other suggestions on the forum, stopping sync, Verifying the Integrity, renaming the places.sqlite file, and also refreshing and re-installing Firefox. Nothing works. I also find that Firefox is consistently using over 50% of CPU resources. So the program feels very sluggish. I will post the Verify integrity log below.

I know how to bookmark a page- what I want to know is how to restore the bookmark star in the address bar (I accidentally removed it). I KNOW that you can bookmark a page by clicking the 3 dots at the end of the address bar and using the drop down menu, etc, or key commands.

BUT- I want to RESTORE the star that easily and quickly allowed you to bookmark a page. All other answers to this same question seem to only tell people alternate ways to bookmark a page. I don't need that. I need to know how to restore bookmark star to address bar. Thanks! my firefox ver is 84.0.1 64bit

Hello. Late yesterday all of my bookmark folder contents became empty. I tried unsuccessfully to restore. Was able to import into Microsoft Edge and then import into Firefox from Edge. Bookmark folder contents were initially visible in Firefox but are once again blank. Bookmark folder contents are still visible in Edge. I sync Firefox between my Samsung S8+ and 2 Windows 10 Pro laptops. Please help.

Hallo,

nach einer Neuinstallation des Betriebssystems kann ich leider meine Exportdatei von einem externen Speichermedium nicht mehr in den neu installierten firefox importieren. Die Datei wird nicht automatisch erkannt. Erst wenn ich den Dateinamen in das entsprechende Feld hineinschreibe (siehe Bild), erscheint die Datei. Wenn ich die dann öffnen will, passiert nichts.

Was kann ich tun, um meine alte Lesezeichen-Bibliothek wieder zu bekommen?

Danke für die Unterstützung Alexander

I have a number of bookmarked pages. When I open a new window and then select the bookmarked page i want to open, FF switches tyo another ALREADY OPEN TAB and loads the page there removing the page that was opened. EX: I use both regular FF and Private windows on my screen and switch from one to the other according to the loaded pages I am using. When I open a new tab in private windows and try to get FF to open a bookmarked page, it will switch to my open tabs under regular FF instead of opening the bookmarked page in the new private windows page it will REPLACE an open page. This happens a lot with my YouTube pages which I leave open during the day to listen to binaural beat music in the background while I am working. What's up with that? Why doesn't the bookmarked page open in a new private windows tab?

I also noticed that when I leave pages open during the day in both private and regular FF now (since the most recent update)and go back to them, I often have to reload the whole page instead of just allowing me to go directly to something on that page.

I have been dodging the most recent updates because with each new update there seems to be more and more CONTROL from your side, and less freedom on our side of the screen. Is this purposeful? If so, WHY?!!!

I can't bookmark anything now on my mac computer, there is no "Bookmark page" option anymore! Last month there was no refresh button . Why do these things disappear? I refreshed firefox. Keyboard commands do work but this is annoying especially when I must always force quit firefox and half the time that doesn't always work! May be time to move on to another browser things are always so slow!
