There should be an option to permanently delete specific dates (all bookmarks associated with a specific date) from the list of dates under the "restore bookmarks" option. I want to get rid of the bookmarks associated with several dates, but there is no way to do this unless I can delete the date (or dates) from the list.Otherwise, I cannot delete the objectionable bookmarks associated with those dates. Why not include a delete option when selecting a specific date? Firefox version 92.0.

Certain bookmarks don't open after 92.0 (64 bit) update

I'm using Firefox version 92.0 (64 bit) on an HP 350 G1 notebook running Windows 10.

It seemed that it was after the 92.0 (64 bit) update that I cannot open bookmarks that are PDFs. The correct URL is present, but nothing loads, it's just a blank black page. I have tried turning off the add-ons and refreshing the page, closing and reopening Firefox with the add-ons manually turned off, restarting Firefox with the add-ons disabled, and restarting in safe mode. All of the attempts were performed without any positive results.

I can copy the URL on Firefox and paste it in Edge, and it opens the correct page. I installed Chrome against my better judgment and pasted the URL, and the correct page opens again. I can copy the URL in either Edge or Chrome, paste it on Firefox, and the same results occur as if I clicked on the link in my bookmarks on Firefox. I can click on the bookmark from either the home page or a page that's already opened, and nothing happens. The URL doesn't change on the existing page, and on the home page, "Search with DuckDuckGo or enter address" in the UL space does not change to the URL that I'm trying to open. Is there something I'm missing?

This is one of the URLs that I am trying to open if you want to try it yourself on Firefox: https://www.att.com/idpassets/images/support/wireless/Devices-Working-on-ATT-Network.pdf

I only ever use Edge when I'm having an issue with Firefox, (usually it's when I'm trying to log on to an account or something and I can't, then I realize that it may be one of my add-ons preventing it. I then disable them one by one until I'm able to achieve what I want.

I don't want to have to switch back and forth between Firefox and Edge just to view three PDFs, so if someone knows what could be the resolution to this, I would appreciate it greatly.

Is it possible to have folders with a lot of bookmarks displayed in multiple columns, instead of the scroll arrow?

Side question, is it possible to reduce bookmark list item thickness? I like the redesign, but the bookmarks are super thick, would much prefer the old, thin ones.

Hi there! Since FF 91 all menu items have an incredible vertical spacing, the menu item is twice as high as before. This is a nuisance especially in the bookmark menus. I would like to have the narrow menu item spacing back, without being urged to install an AddOn or to learn CSS programming or to file a bug in this peculiar BugZilla system. Think of our family of USERS, not developers.

Yes, I understand the circumstances of free software. Yes, I see it is necessary to keep up with modern UI design and the so-called technical progress. The FF 91 UI changes slightly towards what we expect to get in Windows 11. Fine! Also, it is absolutely clear that the new menu line spacing adds more comfort to the FF usability ... on tablet PCs and smart phones. But NOT for desktop users.

As far as I know, Microsofts plans for Windows 11 still include a setting to keep the old narrow menu item height. Mozilla should do so, too. I hope the developers will take care to not lose contact to their users.

I have modified userChrome.css with

#editBMPanel_folderMenuList {
  /* Specify icon to override basic folder   */
  list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/places/bookmarksToolbar.svg") !important; 
  /* list-style-image: url("file:///E:/FireFox%20ESR/App/Firefox64/browser/bookmarksToolbar.svg")  */
}
 /*  One line fix   This colours all bookmarks  Blue */ 
 .bookmark-item[container], treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container) { fill: #3336ff !important; }

/* Make Shop folder Red */
toolbarbutton.bookmark-item[label="Shop"] > .toolbarbutton-icon {   fill:   #e74c3c   !important; }

This colors all the bookmarks blue and changes the 'Shop' folder to red

I went into the omni.ja file and extracted bookmarksToolbar.svg and saved it in the above directory. When I change the url to the file: and comment out Chrome: then it loads the svg file but doesn't color it. It stays gray. What is the difference?

thanks Norbert

Menus have Larger font and large space between items. How to reset all menus back to the settings used prior to version 89.0?

Windows 10 OS Firefox version 89.0 Issue effecting all menus. Larger font and large space between items in drop down menu.

After update to the current version, click on eg: 'Bookmarks' and all bookmarks are listed. However, the font size has increased and there is a significant gap between each bookmark. This means a load of top level bookmarks are not instantly visible until you extend.

This problem is effecting all drop down Menus from the 'Menu Bar', but not the 'Menu Bar' itself and that also includes the 'Menu app icon (3 horizontal lines)'.

I have a large screen/monitor using 1920 x1080, it allows me to display many windows at once, so this must look really bad on anything smaller. I do not need extra scrolling or additional clicking etc as it only increases RSD issues. I do not have any sight issues.

How can I reset all menus back to the settings used prior to version 89.0 so that it looks normal?

Or is this a bug? I cannot believe this was actually by design.

Cheers for any help. It's driving me potty.

Hiya, I use bookmarks to keep a track of music I plan to listen to, and I had set up my folders so I could see everything in a subfolder on my screen. Now the font size or something changed and I can't see everything all at once on my screen. I don't have the time or energy right now to even think about trying to reorganise it all. Is there a way I can lower the font size or something to get back the space I lost?

I run Firefox on a couple Windows PCs and one Linux Mint PC. Each of them is running Firefox 92.0.

My customary process had been to use one of the Windows PCs as my master copy of Firefox bookmarks. I do not use synch; rather, every so often I export the bookmarks from the master machine and restore the export to my other machines. I've not had a problem with that process in the past.

Today I encountered a problem for the first time: I exported the bookmarks from my "master" Windows PC and usual and then restored to my other PCs. The other Windows PCs did so without trouble, but the Mint PC did not restore the export file correctly: When I attempt to restore on the Mint PC, I get the folder structure from the original Windows export, but none of the folders is populated with bookmarks; instead, all 5K or so individual bookmarks are listed individually at the top level of my "Bookmarks Menu" folder, beneath the list of empty folders.

I've run the about:support Places Database "Verify Integrity" function on both the Windows master PC and on the Mint PC. The function does not flag any issues.

Any idea what's going on, and how I can resolve it? Might there be a bug in the Linux 92.0 that I should report somewhere? Is there a workaround I can try in the meanwhile, e.g., copy places.sqlite from the master machine to the Linux machine?

Thanks in advance for your help / guidance.

The latest Firefox update forces my bookmarks folder to be double spaced between bookmarks and folders making it too large for my page. I have to use the navigation arrows to access all of it's folders.. and the folders inside the folders too.

I've temp returned to the previous version but would like to keep updating to keep up with security patches.
