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

Hi,

I'm struggling with how to sort my many bookmarks. Not sure if a bookmark should be in a sub-directory and/or I add multiple tags. I've thought of adding them to generalized directories and then adding as many tags as needed, but am not able to search/select multiple tags in the Library window. Any pointers on what is a good way to do this?

I have things like Coding, Learning, Tools. But then also Git, PHP, Linux. I can't figure out how to sort all these :( Thanks for any input you may have.

Cheers.

I've tried every suggestion of removing "Other Bookmarks" and all failed miserably with this new Firefox, it is ticking me off, why Firefox creates these irritations for its members is beyond me, no wonder its popularity is shrinking. I need a new solution that works for mercy sake, I am at the end of my rope with this issue.

When I was looking at the site and login credentials I noted there are three accounts listed:

@hotmail.com - When I log into Firefox using this account I am granted access to bookmarks and related credentials. @gmail.com - When I try to login using this account, a message is presented saying I need to log in using the main account. This makes sense as this is listed as a secondary account.

My main concern is the last account - when I try to login using those credentials, I need to go through an account set up - including providing my age. So is this an account I should be concerned with, or can it be safely ignored?

Best regards! Loralie

I got the message : "The address wasn’t understood Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (javascript) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context. You might need to install other software to open this address.". What to do ?

I can manually save copies of Bookmarks with export to a file. Where does Firefox save them, how often, when, and where are the 15 backups. Would like the safety of copying and saving to an off computer drive.

Now remembering, I see them from: Help, Trouble Shooting Information Mode, Profile Folder (Open) then bookmarksbackup Folder. Should I then save the most recent dated version?
