This issue has arisen on Firefox for Linux Mint (my current version is 123.0 (64bit)). I like Firefox, and I like its bookmarks toolbar, and have used it for many years, but there seems to be a new bug introduced today:- The bookmarks toolbar is present and correct when I start Firefox, but now it disappears as soon as I select any bookmark, or if I enter any web address or if I open a new tab. The [View >Toolbars > Bookmarks Toolbar > Alway Show] option is already selected, but the toolbar is no longer visible. If I click on it again, the bookmarks toolbar reappears (or I can restart Firefox, and this will also restore the toolbar). But the toolbar now disappears as soon as I use the browser in any way, and so is currently not really of practical use, as it needs constant restoring. Hope you can help resolve this. Many thanks in advance

When using private browsing window, bookmarks toolbar keeps disappearing every time I open a new tab or anything else. My setting for show bookmarks is "always show" and it works normally in a regular window. It also used to work normally in private browsing until a few days ago. Clicking "show bookmarks toolbar" works until I open any of the bookmarks, then the toolbar disappears again. How do I make the toolbar permanently visible in a private browsing window?

My browser was just updated today and now my Toolbar Bookmarks are missing from the toolbar.

Hi, my bookmarks toolbar doesn’t show when I launch Firefox. They always use to. When I click on View>Toolbar>Bookmarks Toolbar>Always Show - the Bar shows. When I click on any bookmark the bar disappears. If (in new window) I click on View>Toolbar>Bookmarks Toolbar>Always Show - the bar appears, when I then open new tab it does not show on new tab and when I click back to previous tab bookmarks are gone.

I have restarted W10 PC, no change.

Hope you can help, many thanks, David

I messed up firefox and uninstalled it. Then I forgot the password and changed it. My other computers still have my settings, but with a different password. Should I change the password back to get all my settings back?

I found the correct password on another computer. The other computer still has all the correct bookmarks and add-ons. I really, really, really can't lose all those settings. I will also need to be adding a table to the same account.

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, I am sorry to have to go to such lengths to figure out how I can fix this error. Today I opened up Firefox to watch some simple youtube videos, then I come to realization that all my bookmarks I have are gone. I quickly check up on them to find out that they are still there, which was a relief for me. I searched through multiple different problems and solutions, but none of them worked for me I can try to send you an image of what has now become of my bookmark toolbar. I tried restoring the defaults, as well as restarting my PC, or checking if I have the toolbar visible. I sincerely hope you can help me fix my problem.

Yours sincerely, Oliver Wiechert

QUESTION POSTED NOV 2020 by: BevHoward NEVER ANSWERED - PLEASE ADVISE - NEED ANSWER

"I have hundreds of FireFox bookmarks organized in bookmarks folders and subfolders which makes sense most of the time.

However, with seldom used bookmarks, often I cannot remember where the bookmark itself is located, and, I need like to find the bookmark and note the folder where it resides then perhaps move the bookmark to a folder that makes more sense the next time it's needed.

While I can "search" bookmarks and use the bookmark, there is no apparent way to determine where the bookmark itself is located, so, I am forced to use "search" every time I need to use it. "Abandoning" a lost bookmark location and creating a duplicate does not seem right.

There MUST be a way to find where a bookmark is located. What am I missing?"

Hi! Hope you are well and can help me?!!!

I guess my first problem was buying a refurbished laptop from Best Buy. Anyway, after having to return it the day I received it, because it wouldn't even boot up, it was repaired and returned back to me. I then got it all setup like I wanted, but if it ever hung up, or I needed to reboot because of a software update, or for any reason, it sometimes took several tries because of the hard drive not being found to boot from. Well, after about a year of it doing this(still under warranty), it finally would not boot up at all and I was forced to return it to be repaired. They had to replace the hard drive and did send me the bad one back, so I thought I wouldn't have "anything" since they had to install a new hard drive. Well, I first look to see if any of my old data was there and I was flabbergasted that it was - from what I could tell, everything!!! I don't know if this was from the One drive or like on another browser(Google Chrome) I use, all my bookmarks were there, along with passwords, everything!!! Well, I also use Firefox Mozilla, so after installing it, I was not so happy when it appears that my bookmarks were not retained. Before, I didn't have an account on your browser and I am assuming that is why nothing was retained. I only signed up for an account on your browser today, obviously to send you this help question - hope of finding my old bookmarks and the passwords I had on them. Needless to say, I can recreate them and get new passwords established again, but I sure hope they are still on my laptop "somewhere" that you can help me find them and restore them to your browser. I searched the hard drive for bookmarks and did find a Firefox Mozilla file that looks like a backup file, but even if it is, I don't know how to restore it - but maybe it is just a file I created today only - I just don't know. With this long winded question here, can you Please help me??? Much Thanks in advance!!! Walt Wise

It is sad, I think, that Mozilla/Firefox is willing to close/archive a thread that is not really solved or has reared its ugly head again in versions since the release of 93 (we are now at 97.0.2). I came to this site and registered because I am still having this issue as of 3/6/2022...arg!

I have tried the 3 recommended solutions, with no affect:

I have, as one article suggested, cleared my cache and cookies, started and restarted Firefox; the only thing I have not tried is removing it from my computer and using Chrome (I'm told it is a better browser anyway) as some responders have eluded to.

I hope that responders like "jscher2000, Kymber" will continue the champion this issue until Mozilla gets it "Really" fixed.

Thanks for listening, Wayne

BTW, heres what my dropdowns look like today 3/6/2022 6:17 PM Arizona time.

After a computer reboot, ALL my bookmarks have disappeared. I'm running Firefox 98.0.2 on Mac 10.14.6 - I've followed all the 'help' advice: I opened firefox profiles, it only shows one. I rebooted Firefox (I was left with bare bones) and still no bookmarks and still only one profile. I've looked in the computer 'library' and I can find nothing compressed (the bookmarkbackups folder has 15 items but all are dated 2022). Can someone please help me retrieve them, I'm in the middle of a project and NEED the bookmarks. Thank you in advance!

Hi,

I got an issue that bookmarks are saved in the library, but this doesn't reflect on the Bookmark toolbar.

I have already removed the entire profile, did a reinstall .. nothing seems to reset it. When I perform a backup, the entries are also in the backup json.

I hope somebody can help, this started happening recently it seems.

Thanks in advance!
