Importing Bookmarks from Safari - Folders Don't Appear

Hello All:

I want to import my bookmarks from Safari to Firefox but strange things are happening.

I go to the File menu, scroll down to "Import From Another Browser" and select "Safari."

I click OK and Firefox works for a while and then says it's done with the import.

However, when I then go to "Manage Bookmarks" in Firefox I can't find any of the folders from Safari!

The weird thing is, those bookmarks are SOMEWHERE in Firefox, because when I search for a particular bookmark which I know was originally in Safari but NOT Firefox (some rather obscure website) IT DOES APPEAR IN THE FIREFOX SEARCH!

I've done this with about 10 websites, so I know they exist somewhere in Firefox.

But none of the folders where they originally resided in Safari seem to appear in Firefox. The only way I seem to be able to access those bookmarks is to go to the Search bar and search for them.

Does anyone have any thoughts about how I can find the folders imported from Safari?

Thanks!

11.27.21

iMac - OS10.11.6 El Capitan - Firefox 78.15

I have spent hours searching internet and Mozilla support. Nothing. All I want to do is switch my sign in accounts. I have two. Firefox confirms this. When I go into Accounts, following existing procedures to establish a second sign in, I type in second email with response telling me this account already exists. I know that. I can even see it in the Passwords/Accounts section.

But nothing, nothing appears anywhere telling me how I can simply switch from existing sign in to the other. Nothing.

If anyone at Firefox would care to explain the secret, I would appreciate it so I can stop wasting time searching this solution.

Don't use euphemisms like some instructions do which only confuse simple answers. Please simply state Step 1, Step 2 etc

One such support page said something like select one account and click "Preferred" or the like. Saw nothing like this in my Account settings.

thanks Larry

After receiving an email about lockwise absorption, I thought I would try changing my firefox account password. Mainly that was because I do not see any other way to log into another mac system without it. I can sync an ios device with the qr code scan but not another mac system.

So from the account profile I went to Change Password and changed the password to some new securely generated password.

Now in my saved passwords, I see that the new password is saved for "(no username)" account and the old password is still there for my user name.

But when I try to log into FF browser on another mac system with my user name, neither password works. They are both "incorrect".

I've tried everything to get it to quit bringing up this site when I start typing. It is NOT in my bookmarks. "Shift Delete" does nothing except remove the letters that are selected. Telling it to forget the site in history also does not work. Yes, it removed it from history, but it still comes up as a suggestion.

Please help!

I'm on a macboox pro (intel) with the built in camera and an external camera fuji (not connected).

When I start a google meeting or skype call firefox wants to use the external camera and I don't see any options to use the internal camera.

If I try the same thing in Safari browser it works perfectly.

How do I tell firefox which camera to use?

I understand this forum is by volunteers, and that Mozilla doesn't care a whit about the hassle they saddled us with. And that many many people have asked the same question, does anyone know a work around?

Does anyone know whether the speed dial information is stored on our computers?

If it is somewhere on our computers, does anyone know how to somehow copy it in any way? Like with specific instructions. The answer might be something like, it is in the such and so folder, and you could open it by step #1 , then step 2, then step 3.

Someone else's name is showing up as a saved login user name on Twitter.com - Firefox only

I use Firefox (94.0.2) on a Macbook Pro (using MacOS 11.6.1) and went to log in to Twitter this evening and had a strange result. I only occasionally view Twitter using my laptop and I use my email address and a password to log in. When I clicked in the field that reads "Phone, user name or email" I expected to see the Firefox autofill to show my email address, but instead it shows the name "Farha Hussain" (see screenshot image).

I checked my Firefox preferences for Saved Logins and I have my email address and password for Twitter saved there, but no mention of Farha Hussain (my name is Keith). I tried other websites to see if I could recreate the issue and couldn't. I visited the Twitter login form using Chrome and Safari and neither suggested Farha Hussain as a user name, so I think that this is something specific to Firefox on the Twitter website.

To make this an even more unusual situation, the only "Farha Hussain" that I know is a doctor in my city who I have been meaning to contact to see if she is accepting patients, but haven't yet done so. Her name is in my Mac Calendar and that's the only place I can think of on my computer (not in contacts or anywhere else). How this would be connected to a Twitter login is beyond my understanding.

Let me know if you would like additional information or screenshots.

When I forward some links, rather than taking the recipient to the specific YouTube page, the link takes them to the YouTube home page. Other sites I can still forward correctly. I have researched this issue and except for a virus that affected Firefox a few years back, I have found nothing. I have run spyware, malware, and virusware with no change.

Is this a YouTube issue? Another form of Big Tech censorship? Anyone else out there having issues like this?

I finally put FireFox in the garbage can in my iMac (Big Sur 11.5.1) and flushed it and then downloaded a new copy. No difference. I deleted all my cookies per the Firefox suggested repair page. Why would a specific site generate these forward issues? Just for giggles, I tried a forward in Safari (which I never otherwise use) and the links work correctly.

I have been a Firefox supporter from the very beginning and hate to swap browsers. Thank you to all the wonderful code writers and tech support volunteers out there who make this effort possible.

Hello everyone

I migrate MacOS and i discover a bad UI behavior. The toolbars slide when I move the mouse to the top. Therefore, it becomes difficult to select the desired tab.

However, this is not the case in Safari. You can watch the videos.

Is there a setting that can prevent tabs from sliding?

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)
