I'm using FF 84.0.2 64 bit on an HP laptop with Win 10. Recently, the Other Bookmarks link has installed itself permanently on the right side of my Bookmarks Toolbar. I can't tell you how badly I want it off of there. It takes up space and knocks off another bookmark that I use daily into the >>overflow section. I never use Other Bookmarks and really want to take it off of my Bookmarks Toolbar--like it used to be. If you must keep it, then leave it under the Bookmarks section of the Menu Bar. Please change this. I love FireFox, but this isn't a good change for me.

My bookmarks toolbar no longer has any bookmarks. And per online support, the "Add Bookmarks Menu to Toolbar" is not an option availalble to restore them. What I DO have when clicking on the bookmarking icon is 1. Bookmark this page. 2. Bookmarking tools > Remove bookmarks menu from toolbar > View bookmarks sidebar > Hide bookmarks toolbar 3. Search bookmarks But there is no "Add Bookmarks Menu to Toolbar"

How do I restore my bookmarks? AND are all my associated Foxfire generated passwords at risk as a result of their disappearance?

Also, GHOSTERY suddenly appeared on Firefox. I did not install it.

I've just updated my browser and all of my bookmarks have disappeared without a trace. I've tried every bit of useful information I could find here, but nothing seems to be working and even after following the Show All Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Restore, the only backup file that appears is one which has been automatically created with the new update. The "Old Firefox Data" folder mentioned in similar treads has saved only the most recent bookmarks after the update.

Any and all help will be appreciated, as I am extremely distressed at the thought of having lost so many important bookmarks forever.

I casually clicked on Firefox today and i was greeted with a new folder in my bookmarks toolbar called "Other Bookmarks" (The folder in the picture that is named in my native language). I would like to find a way to remove this folder since it takes so much space in my toolbar for no reason and its useless for me.

There's no obvious way to take it off the toolbar, delete or even rename it (i know you're not supposed to delete it since this is a Firefox system folder but its annoying pinned there). I don't know if this is caused from a recent update but its really annoying...

Any help would be appreciated, and thanks in advance.

After the last update 84.0.2 the "Other bookmarks" folder appeared on the bookmarks bar. I have not found a way to remove it and I find it useless and annoying as it takes away space for other more commonly used bookmarks. Anyone can give me instructions on how to make it disappear from my bookmarks bar. On another computer not yet updated to version 84.02 even with the synchronization active, the problem does not exist.

Thanks to those who want to help me.

I have about 70 bookmarked websites listed in Bookmarks Menu. About 20 of them are about one subject that's important to me. I thought it would be easier to find them if they all had the same tag, which I added. As I understood the instructions, to find these websites I should enter the tag in the address field, where a URL or a Google search term usually goes. But when I do this, only a few of them appear, and I think they are the ones I've looked at recently, and would appear anyway without the tag.

Why did Firefox change the way one could hide or display the "Bookmarks Toolbar"?

Before all one had to do was click on "View" and one could hide or show the Bookmarks Toolbar, but with the latest change/update, now one has to chose select "View", then hover over "Toolbars", then hover over "Bookmarks Toolbar", and finally select "Always", "Never" or "Only on New Tab". How could that be an improvement? I miss being able to toggle it off or on in a rapid manner, because now I have to waste more time to just hide or display it again.

Is there a way to be able to view or hide the "Bookmarks Toolbar" in a more efficient manner? I'm asking because I normally have to hide them and later display them back again tens of times on a daily basis, mainly because when I take screen captures, I don't want the Bookmarks Toolbar to appear. So this new feature really annoys me.

Hopefully there's another alternative to be able to toggle it on or off.

Hello,

I have my most important bookmarks and folders in my Bookmark Toolbar. Today when I turn on the computer a bookmark folder that I don't want on the toolbar is now showing up and it's not letting me delete it. Weirdly, when I go into manage my bookmarks and look at the Bookmark Toolbar folder this folder doesn't show as being part of the toolbar. When I go to the folder in the bookmark manager screen it won't let me delete it. If I try to move it into another folder it just creates a copy of the folder and does nothing for the copy of the folder in the toolbar that I'm trying to remove. How do I get rid of this folder in my toolbar?
