When I bookmark all my tabs in a session using the CTRL+SHIFT+D hotkey, it automatically creates a folder of all the tabs. The folder that is automatically created with that hotkey, however, only displays the URL instead of the page title. It adds difficulty when choosing bookmarks, since only the URL is shown, and not the title of the webpage.

There are three accounts on my laptop; mine, my husbands and an Administration account. Yesterday morning, all was well! later in the morning I went back to my laptop account, signed on to Mozilla and discovered that all of my bookmarks were gone. I have tried the Restore feature that Mozilla outline under "Bookmarks, Import & backup" but get a message "Unable to process the backup file". Is it time to go to Gmail??

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?

I do like firefox since its birth! Now I'm upset with it, cause several times a year some bookmark folders simply vanish, mainly after updates, but not only! I'm an attentive fellow, It's not due to bad manips, it's just that the bookmark managing system isn't stable nor well encapsulated. My bookmarks are 24 megas, super well organized, they're my goldmine! Several people reported that issue and no one at Mozilla listens.

Next time I'll switch to Chrome, even if their bookmark manager is less handy...

I recently had to wipe my MacBook Air clean thus prompting me to download Firefox - version 70.01 (64-bit). I set up all of my work websites, history, passwords, emails, etc., but every time I close the browser and try to open it again, nothing is saved. I've tried several times and I am at a loss. Yes, I have created a Firefox account, and even this won't leave me logged in if I close the browser. I have to start over every time. Any advice?

I have exported my Chrome passwords to a CSV file ( a couple of different ways) and have a perfectly good CSV file in which I can see my passwords (site, username, password) but I can't find a way to import them into Firefox. I install password exporter but it can't load the file(s). No matter what I call the fields in the CSV file, I just can't import.

I really want to go back to using Firefox but I need to import my passwords.

Does anyone have any suggestions... either an alternative to the Password Exporter add on, or advice on how to format the CSV file so I can be imported.

I visited the password exporter site and there is not much help there.
