A folder in Bookmarks disappeared AGAIN! This is ridiculous. Every now and then Firefox loses a Bookmark folder. To make matters worse, I can waste a lot of time trying to find it and get no where. I have better things to do than trying to find lost Bookmark folders! How can I easily find the very important Bookmark folder quickly? Undo does not help.

Hello dear Nerds

With the last update the Bookmarks have a wide distance when listed. Too wide! I have to scroll down endlessly to find things. Before they were neatly narrow and you could see twice as much. Kindly repair this next time please. Or can I do this? Best Ursula Zürich

i opened firefox (v.95) and tried opening up my email and found that all my saved passwords were gone from firefox on my computer. it said i should crate a firefox account to get my logins back so i did and i still could not access any of my web logins. so i searched the help pages. opened up my profile n made a backup of my key3, key4, n loginjson files, downloaded v.91 firefox esr and copied my key3 file into a new profile.

so i still dont have my web logins ... n now i have an outdated version of firefox with none of my bookmarks either. im sick of troubleshooting n my wifi is almost out for the month.

how do i get my web logins and bookmarks back so i dont have to spend hundreds of hours recreating them?

version 94.0.2 (64-bit) message: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I can not see any of my bookmarks and I can not bookmark any page. I have: Shut down Firefox and restarted: no help uninstalled, deleted folders, and reinstalled: no help Import bookmarks from another browser: no help. That doesn't work either

What "security software" is the message talking about?

Hope you can help, because I don't want to go to another browser.

Hi,

I'm using Waterfox and since the last upgrade, I've lost all my bookmarks. I've tried what I can find in help and so far, I've not managed to find anything that will bring them back.

I'd appreciate some help and advice please - I had hundreds of bookmarks and to lose them all is something of a nuisance to put it politely!

Thanks in advance, for any help and suggestions given.

Regards,

Mark

I have a bookmark on my bookmark toolbar, that when I open the bookmark has no highlighted star to allow me to choose to remove it. I open the entire bookmark list and it doesn't even show in the bookmarks list. How can I delete this off my bookmark toolbar? It's like it doesn't exist but it's front and center showing up. It does work and go to a valid web page. But I don't want it on the toolbar. And can't find a way to get rid of it. I've cleared cache, restarted, updated, etc. Nothing works.

Welcome back. I cannot restore bookmarks and passwords as instructed on the Firefox website. I don't have old data. AVF TuneUp scanned the system and automatically installed driver updates for me. After the update, the system crashed - Windowws10 Pro and the recovery function did not work. I had to turn on auto repair, with the option to keep my files. The files remained, but all installed applications were automatically removed as well. About Firefox after automatic repair did not keep passwords, bookmarks. I have a Firefox account and I had it before the failure. Because, based on the advice from Firefox, I cannot restore passwords, accounts and bookmarks (I do not have a copy on my computer) and there is no direct contact link on the help page so that I can send an email asking for help, VERY, VERY Mister please provide a link who will help me, to the person who will restore all the data from my account. Data necessary for work. So I PLEASE HELP AND GIVE A LINK TO THE PERSON WHO WILL HELP ME and restore my bookmarks, accounts and passwords in Firefox. best regards Grażyna

My computer crashed and I'm trying to start installing my old bookmarks on the new computer. I can't list bookmarks in the left margin as I did with my old computer. It used to give you that option but no longer. Further, I can't list any more then a few bookmarks on the upper horizontal toolbar. What am I missing?

In the latest release the gap between Bookmarks on the Bookmark toolbar folders is huge. Why was this changed and how to change it back? Note this isn't happening from the menu, only from the Bookmarks toolbar folders. It is extremely ugly and huge waste of space which forces me to scroll to see all my bookmarks under some folders.
