Hi all; once again and seemingly too often, a Win 10 BSOD and Firefox was reset and where are my bookmarks ? Normally I had them on the LHS of the page but this is getting too much as I cannot find them anymore. Can someone give me a nudge to where I can find them ? rJ

Windows auto-updated and my bookmark toolbar disappeared

I still see all of my bookmarks in the "Bookmarks" list, but none of them appear across the top of my screen, where they usually are and I can't put them back.

What is the best free font to use on your website if you want it to look like an old book?

Serif fonts help with readability, and are therefore preferable in the body of a book. The “serif” is the decorative stroke that finishes each end of a letter (think Times Roman). Serif fonts are easier on the reader’s eye than sans-serif fonts; the stroke leads the reader’s eye from one letter to the next.

I want to remove the "Open All in Tabs" bookmark from my bookmarks folders, it's annoying and unnecessary (mouse scroll button is enough). Right clicking it opens the same menu as right clicking any folder, but in this case, the only option I want ("Delete Folder") is unavailable. I searched for a solution online, but the only thing I saw was something about editing codes and stuff, but I'd rather not mess with them. I couldn't find anything about it in the settings either, and there were no plugins, add-ons or extensions to fix this problem. If there's no way at all around it without having to mess with code, please do tell when I can expect to see an update that will bring a way to turn it off.

Whenever I use the searchbar in the bookmarks manager, it always searches all of my bookmarks, but sometimes I might only want to search for that query within a specific folder. Is there any way to limit a bookmarks search to only a specific folder rather than the entirety of my bookmarks?

My bookmarks does not show the icons of the bookmarked items. It just show a generic icon like a globe. On my other PC it shows the icon of the companies bookmarked. For example the Citibank, it shows the Icon of the Citibank, or Kaiser Permanente, it shows the icon of Kaiser. How do I set my Firefox to do the same?

Hello, I am using Firefox 78.15.15.0 esr (64 bit) on an iMac Desktop with OS X ElCapitan 10.11.6

When I try to open any bookmark or anything with an URL I get only a blank Tab. In Preferences I can see all my Bookmarks, History, Home page URL, Firefox Home, Cookies and Site data. The Applications box contains only; irc always ask, ircs always ask, mailto use mail and PDF open in firefox. I Refreshed Firefox and got the Old Firefox Data folder. The files for Bookmarks, Downloads, Browsing History, Passwords, and Cookies all have the same values in the Old and Current Profiles. File types "handlers.jason" value is 2KB in the Old and 540 bytes in the Current. I also tried restarting in Safe Mode with no improvement. I have read through most of the articles and links but not being an expert can't see a clear step by step path to resolution. I would appreciate any help you can give to resolve this matter. Thank you. Pete

Hi, I have been using Firefox for years without problems, and suddenly the vast majority of my bookmarks -- while retaining the link designation -- have been replaced with links to Amazon products. I uninstalled Firefox, re-installed, and reloaded the links, and for a few hours last night, the bookmarks linked correctly to the intended addresses, but now it's back to an invasion by links to Amazon products, hidden behind the bookmark names.

How can I view the bookmarks/library in the browser pane, rather than a toolbar on the side? I can't read the small print, my folders aren't visible, and a miss-click collapses the entire menu.

I want it to open like the "settings" menu, where it is in the browser pane like any regular website.

I am traveling and had to reset my Firefox account password *without* creating a recovery key first. This new laptop did not get any of the bookmarks and credentials. After reading through the recovery key info, I now see that it is supposed to happen that way. When I did this, my office PC (which has all of my bookmarks and credential history) was automatically logged out of Firefox sync. The good news is that it still has an intact offline copy of my bookmarks and credentials. If I log that machine back into Firefox sync with the new password, is the online "empty" repository going to overwrite that machine and wipe out the bookmarks and credentials? If so, is there a way to set that machine's local DB to "win" and overwrite what is online?

Thanks, Jim
