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?

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 had this issue for years now. I love firefox, but you guys have to fix this. It's as unacceptable as Steam having no volume button on game trailers for years.

I want to see my bookmarks with the click of a mouse. Not my recent bookmarks. Not my recent highlights. Not my bookmarks toolbar. Just. My. Bookmarks.

It's the most important browsing function right after back, forward, search/web bar and tabs. It's utterly, utterly unacceptable that I can't access my bookmarks with one click.

I'm not going to mod it or download an app. As far as I'm concerned, this is a bug that hasn't been fixed in years. Please get it together.

With all my frustrated love, Redtail

I wonder why this very important field is removed. I have over 10 years of information recorded in this field for reference. This seems completely unneccessary to remove it. At least, could you provide an import tools so that user can move those description into some other field in the bookmark?

I saw many people asked this question, and no solution works for me. By exporting the information to a html is not enough, because I need to manually handle over 10 years of description information, which is foolish.

I changed a couple names of my bookmarked pages so that it would shorten the pop-up menus and sub-pop-up menus that appear whenever I hover over different folders of "Bookmarks" I've saved. I'm seeing those changes reflected on the device on which I made them but not on my other computer where I'm also signed in to the same Mozilla account.

Any idea why those changes aren't syncing and being reflected across all my devices? Or... how long do such changes typically take to sync?

Thanks! -Nate
