I use Firefox on two different computers. On one, I'm logged in with bookmarks syncing enabled, and on the other one, no Firefox account is added. I do bookmark and tagging on both. I wonder what will happen with the bookmarks and their tags for the same bookmarked websites after I sign-in on the other computer?

For example, on the signed-in computer mozilla.org is bookmarked with tags: Firefox, mozzila and on the other computer without account mozilla.org is bookmarked with tags: browser, application

After I enable syncing on the second computer, will I get a result of the merged synced bookmark: mozilla.org with tags firefox, mozzila, browser, application or it will get overwritten?

Lost Bookmarks after upgrading to FireFox 92.0 on Mac Computer OS X 11.6

I updated my Mac OS X to 11.6 (Big Sur) AND then updated FireFox to Version 92.0 and now I have lost my bookmarks.

I looked up the subject of losing Bookmarks on Firefox and attempted recovery. It was partially successful, as described below.

First, a little more on update history. I have multiple accounts on my computer. My main account we will call Account-A and another account is Account-B. Account-B was setup years ago as a backdoor into my computer in case Account-A became corrupted. A couple of other accounts were for my kids and have not been accessed in years.

Fast Forward - After Installation of both upgrades (OS X 11.6 and FireFox 92.0) from Account-A, I then went to Account-B and found missing bookmarks. I followed instructions provided on FireFox’s website under “about:profile” and recovered my bookmarks under Account-B

I returned to Account-A and discovered the same problem. I went to “about:bookmarks” and attempted to recover my bookmarks. The profile said it was fixed and was not able to be changed and could not be accessed. Note the file paths were different.

After nearly giving up in trying to find the file as displayed on the file path on FireFox about:profile page, I found what I believe are the fifteen (15) previous files that FireFox stores. I am unable to select any previous bookmark file from the list within the ‘about:profile” page.

In an attempt to buy time before the file is over-written and preserve what I believe are my bookmarks, I COPIED, the one file from yesterday (Sept 18, 2021) to my Desktop.

I need further help or guidance on recovering my bookmarks under Account-A.

Thank you in advance for any and all help!

First off, I'm kind of a nincompute. So, simply, my bookmarks always separate somewhere in the middle of the list. Each section is alphabetically arranged.

  But why does this happen? I choose to sort by alphabet, so I should have one list with all the A's in one place, etc., instead of two lists.
  I never chose to divide the list, and i can't figure out how the bookmark genie picks what goes where.

I am backing up my bookmarks to a HTML file as I have been doing for several years. Recently I noticed when I opened the backup file there were two sets of bookmarks shown, one from several months ago (out-of-date and unneeded) and the current one.

I want to eliminate the old set of bookmarks, but I cannot figure out how to do it. The funny thing is the old set of bookmarks is NOT showing in my bookmark library. It is like a ghost set of bookmarks.

Any suggestions?

I'm having all sorts of problems with bookmark management in FF 92.0 on Ubuntu 21.04.

Ctrl+D no longer works in any bookmarked page, so I'm unable to bring up the "Edit This Bookmark" dialog box. Clicking on the star icon (it's red in my browser, not blue) does absolutely nothing.

But typing Ctrl+D or clicking on the empty star icon in an un-bookmarked page DOES save the URL, but I don't get a chance to choose the location of the new bookmark. Because the dialog box no longer appears, FF automatically places it into one of my existing bookmark folders. The only way I can manipulate bookmarks is to select "Manage Bookmarks" and manually cut-n-paste inside the Library window.

I ran FF in troubleshooting mode, but I got the same results.

My "about:config" says that "browser.bookmarks.editDialog.showForNewBookmarks" is set to true.

When I first started saving bookmarks in a fresh version of FF 92.0, the dialog box that allowed me to choose the location always came up, but at some point, it stopped appearing.

How do I permanently delete specific bookmark restore dates from Firefox 92.0, 64 bit? I am running Windows 7 pro. Older versions of Firefox gave me a delete option. Not anymore. I cannot eliminate specific restore bookmarks dates from the restore option. How do I do it? If necessary, I will uninstall Firefox completely. Thank You.

Since the last two updates of 92.0 and 92.01, there is a major lag issue with my bookmark list. When you hover the cursor over a particular folder or link, it takes forever for it to be highlighted. In addition, the favicon associated with any particular link takes forever to populate. The bookmarks worked perfect prior to version 92.0. Being that I am a WIN 7 user, it would appear that whatever the developers did beginning with 92.0, had great affect to WIN 7 users, which implies that maybe other WIN 7 users may also be having the identical issues with their bookmarks. The developers should fix this issue ASAP in the next update. There is no excuse for this issue to be occurring.

Firefox seems to reset to a newly downloaded state without reason. All my bookmarks and custom settings are lost. This has happened several times now and I do not know if it is a BigSur issue or a Firefox issue. My Mac was just updated to BigSur and I did not have this problem on Catalina. I am about to give up on Firefox because of this issue.

I am not able to add or remove bookmarks. The bookmarks library is empty. I can't restore to any back up bookmarks. I restarted in safe mode. No bookmarks. I reset Firefox. No bookmarks. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. No bookmarks. I did a Revo Uninstall and cleared the registry. No bookmarks. I deleted the localstore.rdf. No bookmarks. This is kinda a deal breaker for me. I might have to go to Chrome or IE.

I had about 100 folders w/bookmarks last week and by mistake I imported about 500 other folders dated over several months ago. I discovered I don't need those 500 folders. How do I get ride of all of them without doing it individually? I want to avoid trying to delete them individually folder by folder because it would just be too time consuming. Is there a way to highlight them all (500) and the delete all at once? thank you I await your answer.

Perhaps I can put first 100 folders altogether in another single folder, say X. And then export X as a back up. Then somehow remove all 600 folders plus X all at once some how completely emptying the bookmark listings and import back the backed up folder X. Can that be done?

I am logged into my Google account which is associated with Feedly. The first time I downloaded it, I saw the icon. When I closed Firefox and reopened, it disappeared. I have since upgraded to version 17 and reset Firefox. When I initially installed the Feedly addon again, the icon showed up. After closing FF and reopening - it has again disappeared and I cannot find it in the options for the AddOn bar. Please help - I am looking for a way to remember to check my RSS feeds and this seems perfect!!
