So I upgraded my laptop (Win7) and PC (Win8) to the newest version of Firefox. Now I'm trying to get my bookmarks from my laptop to my PC. So I did everything to setup the new version of sync and on my pc I got a few things synced like the homepage, theme, and a few small things, but bookmarks have not synced. How can I get my bookmarks over?

My team of teachers has a frequently used google doc that we share. My firefox will not allow me to bookmark this doc. I can still bookmark other pages and the rest of my team can bookmark this page.

There is no error message, it behaves as if I hadn't tried to bookmark it at all.

Why this site specific problem on only my computer?

Thanks for any help

I was wondering, is it somehow possible to view which bookmarks are synced with Firefox sync? Maybe somewhere in an online repository?

The reason I'm asking this, is because I'm having some problems exporting my bookmarks locally. When I go to my bookmarks and backup them as JSON or export them as HTML, and open the result in a text editor, only about 10% of my actual bookmarks is in those files, and the rest is just missing.

So, if Firefox isn't exporting them properly locally, I can't be certain everything is safely backed-up at Firefox Sync, and I would like to verify this by checking what is stored.

I want to place the Bookmarks toolbar above the tabs as I have had for many years. It is more logical/intuitive for me to select the bookmark and have the tab open below the Bookmarks toolbar as my eyes are moving down the page.

So I have a master password set for Firefox, to store my logons. I am syncing my bookmarks and passwords using Firefox's built-in sync function. My question is, are bookmarks encrypted on FIrefox's sync servers? I want to ensure that all my bookmark metadata (tags, keywords, descriptions) that I enter are encrypted. Anyone know if this is occurring?

I've been having script errors for some time, and to such an extent that it makes my browser nearly useless. I've used QuickJava only to some success. Anyway, I tried to create a new profile and transfer my bookmarks, and current browser layout, and add-ons to the new profile using information from the forums, here. It seems that all my add-ons were automatically transfered, anyway, but even after manually transfering copied files of bookmark back-ups, none of my bookmarks or browser layout were transfered.

Can someone help me with this?

Thanks for giving us the Sync function. But, never have I seen any mention of applying this to Sync bokmarks among Windows User Accounts or Mac Profiles. I am running Windows 8 (soon to go to 8.1 Update - - or, maybe, to Windows 7 Professional, if M$ cannot straighten out and fly right with 8.1U) on the HP notebook, and Mac OS X Lion (soon to go up to Mavericks or Yosemite) and I would like to take the good advice and do most of my browsing in the non-admin users instead of the Admins, but ... when I add some Bookmarks in one User, I needto find the new Bookmarks available in the other as soon as I switch Users. Please advise; someone expert in Windows/Firefox, and someone (maybe the same?) for Mac/Firefox. Your helpful assistance will be appreciated.

I've just downloaded the new Firefox Quantum, which looks and feels great, and is easy to customise to my liking. My only big problem is that when I go to view my bookmarks via the menu's 'Library' tab, it shows me a list of recently bookmarked pages and there doesn't appear to be a way to disable this feature. I know it's still early into the release, but has anyone found or does anyone know of a way to disable this yet? It's not something I particularly want to see seeing as I organise all of my bookmarks pretty diligently

thanks
