I clicked on a video in YouTube that I didn't want to have in my history. After navigating to the History sidebar, I right clicked it and clicked on "Forget About This Site". This was a mistake, apparently I needed to click on "Delete Page" instead, now my long rich history with YouTube is gone, but that's beside the point.

Now even after accessing the site numerous times, the address bar refuses to autofill after I press a 'y', and it doesn't come up on the Top Sites in the homepage, like it was blacklisted somehow. The autofill works with other sites. I have no other website starting with 'y' which makes it search for 'y' in the search engine when I press enter. 'browser.urlbar.autoFill' is set to 'true'.

(I have Firefox 84.0.2, Windows 10) The "Recently Bookmarked" category disappeared in Bookmarks. When I googled about the problem, it said go to about:config and find browser.places.smartBookmarksversion--and change to default. This is not listed in about:config. When I "Bookmark This Page" it goes into "Other Bookmarks" at the bottom. (I have a large list of "Other Bookmarks.) Any suggestions?

I installed the latest update today. Jan 12. I lost all my bookmarks. This also happened the last time there was an update a few months ago. Maybe 100 bookmarks collected over 15-20 years gone.

I didn't even want an update.

Attempting to find some HELP period is next to impossible using this setup as you have it set. Finally found what was said to be a "SOLUTION" and it did NOT work for my setup, NO HELP at all! I also posted a possible work around for the additional issues with that one problem with the "Other Bookmaks" as it will NOT allow me to DELETE that folder. On top of this issue, every now and then that "Other Bookmarks" duplicates itself and I have had eighteen or more copies of that folder, if any one of those extra copies is removed they are all removed including the one copy that cannot be removed is "STRIPPED" of any saved bookmarks within that folder.

I recommended that anyone with this issue to create a special bookmark folder to save any bookmarks within that "Other Bookmarks" folder before removing any of the copies and save your bookmarks from that "Other Bookmarks" folder. Now I cannot find my original posting to see if there are any updates. When doing what you call a search for FIREFOX only still comes up with over 2K entries and cannot take the time to review them all. This system is a NIGHTMARE to use to find anything.

I always login to firefox account with sync ON. Recently I've to switched multiple machines, till last machine I was able to get my all saved bookmarks after login+sync. But all of a sudden on new machine when I tried to retrieve bookmarks, I found nothing even after days with sync ON. Is there any way to retrieve them?

FYI. I've used both Firefox main and developer edition, unable to get back bookmarks on either.

Hello, I have a problem that keeps randomly occurring. Firefox will "pop", I'll get a message in a typeface that looks like it's 1995, saying that a secure connection can't be made. The firefox logo in my bottom toolbar changes to an very old version of the logo. Then when i reopen firefox, everything has gone, all history, bookmarks, favorites.. I'm running Mac 0s mojave 10.14.6 No folder with previous firefox info shows up on my desktop. It's just game over.

If I can't find a solution, it's time to look for another browser as this is now unworkable. Any help gratefully received. Thank you!

hallo there, (it's my first time on this forum)

Recently i have two lists, one direct under the other, in my bookmarks (computer). How do i change this back to the normal 1?

PS could at be that firefox on my new telephone (and synchronisation) is the culprit?

thanks

Hello Folks,

I have been using keyword searches setup as bookmarks since Netscape 4 and IE 3. Something like "g" -> google.com/search?query=%s. For some reason, Firefox will sometimes correctly return a search for "test" when typing "g test" but will often return a search for "g test". This is a fairly recent issue with a function that previously worked since the inception of the browser. Why is Firefox misunderstanding the semantics of my keyword search and how do I workaround this bug?

Thanks

I have a new laptop with Firefox 84.0.2 installed, but every bookmark is grey. So difficult to look at. Would prefer the old yellow colour.

When I want to save a bookmark, I usually go through "choose". It seems to give me folders sometimes only open to the first level, sometimes to second and third levels. This behaviour seems random. I want to see only the top-level folders, it would make saving bookmarks quicker. How to achieve this?

I have attached an image of what I see now under "choose"

I have the latest version of Firefox operating on Windows 10.

Suddenly, when I try to login in to my bank website, I get that I have entered the wrong password, it sends me to a second login page and I have to re-enter the password to get in. The bank says there is a problem with too many cookies being saved but didn't know how to fix it in Firefox. I never had this problem before either with the bookmark or by typing in the address. This is the only site that I have this problem.
