I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

Same problem from v. 80.0 is back in 82.0 to current 83.0

I posted this problem back when v.80.0 was out. It was later fixed, but now it's back.

Loading an external bookmark as the default start page in v.83.0 and using it as the default bookmark (file:///C:/Mine/Testing/BOOKMARK.HTM) creates an error.

The error is that clicking on any url in the bookmark to visit and then clicking the top left arrow to return will always bring you to the top of the bookmark. It used to bring you back to the same location on the bookmark. Now, it brings you back to the top of the bookmark. Thus making it necessary to scroll back down to the location (url) you just visited. Really annoying to have to keep do this in order to return to your original location in the bookmark.

Hope someone can help again.

Almost every time ff updates, which seems to be almost every two weeks, things I have carefully arranged in my menus, etc; get messed up and I have to spend days fixing things. I am an information researcher and now can not bookmark anything!!! The bookmark icon, the little star at the top of page, is still there, BUT IT NO LONGER HAS THE "BOOKMARK THIS PAGE" option. It has only the 'show bookmarks' option and some other stuff. So how do I bookmark pages???!!! Please stop with the useless constant poorly thought thru 'updates'.

Since there was an attempted hack a few weeks ago that firefox interrupted I have been unable to access my electric utility account. I tried working through the company trying to sign in to no avail even after changing id's and passwords numerous times. They told me they have done all they can at their end. I really would like to talk to someone who can help me. I'm 73 years old and do use my computer that often and am not really computer savvy. If you can help me, my phone number is [phone number]. I really hope to hear from somebody soon.

I've used FF for years. I recently tried Chrome and imported to Chrome from FF all my FF bookmarks and data. While using Chrome I've added book marks and more. I want to import back to FF from Chrome bookmarks that were added into Chrome. Is FF's import tool smart enough to filter out from the import all the copies that already exist in FF? Or what is the best method for importing everything?

I had to reinstall Ubuntu 20.04 because I removed vital Python 2 and 3 and it broke. Before doing this I was logged into my Firefox profile and should have had my bookmarks and extensions synced. I do not see any reason why this would not be the case. However, after my reinstall of Ubuntu and logging into Firefox profile all of my bookmarks and extensions are gone. I tried checking around Firefox and it only shows bookmarks and extensions from after my reinstall. I have not performed a backup since I reinstalled Ubuntu, but those bookmarks are there. So I don't understand why I can't find my old bookmarks and extensions from before my Ubuntu issue, because I was logged into my Firefox account. My Firefox account information should have been saved to my account not my computer anyway. Please help me I had a lot of important bookmarks on there, but can't remember all of them.

How do I get rid of the extremely annoying and useless "Other Bookmarks" folder which I NEVER use? This forum is misleading because it says only 3 people have this problem. I'm sure there are many thousands but it is almost impossible to comment or reply. It was a major puzzle for me to get this far. Firefox should to make a simple list of bookmarks available, when you have the Bookmarks symbol on the toolbar. It should be the default instead of hiding them in "other folders". If someone wants to make it more complex they easily can add folders. The default now is too complex and difficult to change. Every time I need to add the Firefox browser to a new operating system I need to do extensive research and fiddling just to simplify because I cannot remember the gymnastics I had to go through the last time.This time it made me so exasperated I nearly gave up went to Edge.

Hi all,

I have had an account signed in to Firefox browser that held tens and tens of bookmarks. I had all my bookmarks linked to my profile before I sent it in for repair.

I received my laptop a couple of days ago and I can see the web history going back to when I purchased the laptop, but there are no bookmarks (save a single one) from before I sent in my laptop for repair.

I looked at the about:profiles but one is a default profile with no history and one is default-release with my web history (and one bookmark). Neither have my the entirety of my bookmarks.

Please let me know if there's anything I can do to recover my BMs.

Thanks.

I've tried every solution already on this forum. I've gone from 1) never seeing any history or being able to save a bookmark, to 2) being able to save them and have history while the browser is open (they'd vanish when I'd close it), to 3) now history and bookmarks will stay if I close the browser, but as soon as my computer is turned off and on again, they are gone. So I guess there's progress being made, but I still would like to have a fully-functioning browser. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times, hoping that would fix it. Please help.
