Whenever I bookmarked a page, Firefox always asked me where I want to save the bookmark. Since Firefox updated a few days ago, it just saves every bookmark to last folder I chose but this is inconvenient because I have to then edit the bookmark to save it in the folder where I want it. Is there a setting that I can change so Firefox will again ask me where I want to save a bookmark when I try to bookmark a page?

Thanks in advance.

Firefox just changed.

For over a decade I had a Bookmarks tab on my Bookmark menu, and now that's gone away. I have that whole setup very keenly arranged with folders-in-folders and now I either have to futz with several more buttons than I used to, or do a pop-up window with Ctrl+Shift+O to manage bookmarks when all I want to do is go to my bookmarks menu as before, select the right folder-in-folder, and then "Open all Tabs."

How do I get a Bookmarks icon to click as before without going into another menu for do the Manage Bookmarks when I don't need to manage anything? Speed and accuracy is important, and this is neither fast nor accurate without that icon/tool.

Bookmarks are saving but never show up in my bookmarks bar folders?

  • I have tried to uninstall and reinstall but still same problem. And yes I did a hard delete of all installation files in users - app data..
  • I have checked the read only is not selected in the "places.sqlite", and even deleted it to force a new one, still didn't help.
  • I have also deleted the "xulstore.json" file and that also did not help.
  • I have reset in safe mode to default setting but that also didn't help.

Does anyone please know how to fix this very annoying problem?

Please I really don't want to go back to Chrome but if that's the only reliable browser without so many downsides (apart from privacy) then I don't see any other option if I can't fix this asap.

thank you.

WHERE IS MY BOOKMARKS TOOLBAR??? Every time I update Firefox (now 109), I end up with all kinds of problems! NOW, I can't see my bookmark toolbar. All the help articles tells me how to show it or how to bookmark a page, which I already did multiple times. But this issue is never solved. If I can't get this resolved, I'm going to MS Edge.

Hello,

I have a Dell Windows 10 laptop. I read that the Firefox bookmarks are stored in the places.sqlite database. I deleted places,sqlite from the Old Firefox Data> vs1vf21j.default-1591989997105 folders, but when I opened my Firefox browser, the bookmarks were still there. Is this the place where bookmarks are stored?

Thank you

Hi,

I have spent almost an hour trying to solve this and have come out empty handed and frustrated. Firefox must've updated recently and changed things so that my bookmark dropdown menu is gone. Now, when I want to access a bookmark, I have to click on "manage bookmarks" which opens a new library window and I have to then find it in there. It's a lot more time consuming and inefficient. Used to just be able to scroll down after one click of the bookmark menu.

I've searched other answers to this problem, many of which involved people's bookmarks being stored in the "other bookmarks" folder and being told to move them into the "bookmarks menu" folder which would cause them to dropdown. I've tried moving them into all 3 folders: Bookmarks Menu, Other bookmarks, and bookmarks toolbar, and there is no change. Here is a screenshot of what I see when I open my bookmarks:

  • To clarify, the "recent bookmarks" that shows up is of no interest to me and would also like to remove that. I don't want a dropdown of recent bookmarks, I want a dropdown of ALL bookmarks.

PLEASE if you can help me I would be eternally grateful.

I have found a places.sqlite file on my backup external hard drive. But my current profile has an places.sqlite file already. Can I merge them??? Or can I only replace?

Been using Firefox for long time on a Win10 machine. Motherboard failed. Saved the C drive. Question is how to move bookmarks (profile files ?) from the old C drive to the new Win11 computer? I tried moving the profiles over from the old C drive to the new computer but Firefox would not recognize them and shutdown. Restored the Win11 files and Firefox is again happy.

Hello moz://a team,

Personally, I really like Firefox and have never encountered a problem with it. However, one day I wanted to another row of bookmarks on my homepage, so when I did, I saw that the the new row was already filled with bookmarks and i didn't remember adding them. To investigate I changed my homepage to display 4 rows and found and it too was filled with bookmarks of random websites and I had never added. There was also a lot of duplicates of the same website. I spent hours deleting the hundreds of bookmarks. and then the next week, there was another wave of more and more bookmarks. I've checked in the settings of Firefox but couldn't find an option to stop Firefox from adding more bookmarks without my permission. It may just be a bug, or that something is wrong. If there is an option that stops this but I've missed it please do tell me about it. And if there isn't one then please add the option in an update, please!

Hello there; I had installed the "savefrom.net" extension. This extension automatically generated the website address to the "bookmarks toolbar". I deleted the extension and deleted the shortcut as well. But when the bookmarked website shortcut "firefox" is closed and reopened, it adds itself to the bookmarks toolbar again. No matter what I did, it didn't work. I don't want to delete Firefox completely and reinstall it. Because there are too many shortcuts and data that I use all the time. How do you think I can solve this problem?
