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.

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.

I've been using Firefox on my desktop, laptop and Android Mobile for months without issue. Recently i swapped to a new phone and for some reason the bookmarks on my desktop and laptop are getting jumbled/deleted (see attached pics)

To try solve this I exported my bookmarks to a .json file, then manually deleted all bookmarks on all my devices, ran a manual sync on all devices then completely uninstalled and deleted appdata/cache files.

I then re-installed using a fresh download from Mozilla, signed in and imported my bookmarks from the json file.

for a full day my bookmarks stayed intact, I then installed firefox on my phone and within an hour my desktop bookmarks became jumbled again.

Am I missing something here?

The backup files don't even exist. The html file is gone from the HD of the computer. Launched firefox the other day and the bookmarks were just gone. Everything was reset-homepage, add ons, etc. I have tried all of the recommended fixes listed in the lost bookmarks questions and none solve my issues.

I just got a new SSD and did a clean Ubuntu 19.10 install. Before deleting the old system I did a backup of my Firefox (71) bookmarks to a JSON file. That JSON file has a size of 6.4 MB.

Now on the new install (FF 72.0.1) I restored my bookmarks from that JSON file. But when I did my daily bookmark backup shortly after, the new JSON file only has 5.5 MB.

How come the 0.9 MB difference? How can I tell what data was lost in the process?
