I am really annoyed. The new update has lost many of my bookmarks Plus the 'other' bookmark page that automatically appeared in a bar has disappeared. It now means that as a user, you have to go thru more 'clicks' to access yr 'fav's sites'. Therefore I wish to revert to previous, which hopefully wld still hve ALL of my bookmarks. I wish IT companies wld leave things alone. Generally changes are more for their benefit (data mining) than the users. Can anyone assist me. thks

I downloaded and switched on the "Private Bookmarks" extension which as I understand it should have created a "Private Folder" under "Other Bookmarks"...I closed/re-opened Firefox and nothing. What step am I missing in this process and how can I get this extension operational? Thanks for your assistance.

I installed Win11, Firefox ESR and tried to import my bookmarks which I exported in Win10 to an HTML file. When I open the HTML file I can see the bookmarks under the Bookmarks Toolbar but these are not imported/visible. After import I can only see the Bookmarks Menu bookmarks.

What is going wrong here?

I almost did not recognise my toolbar after seemingly an unattended install. It is extremely annoying with this wasteful double space harrange in the bookmarks toolbar on the browser menu. Why on earth do you want to add such large whitespace between bookmark entries ?

In migrating to a new iMac, I exported my bookmarks to html and imported them to Firefox on the new iMac. That resulted in many old bookmarks appearing on the new iMac, so I looked at the contents of the html file and found very many bookmarks that I had deleted before exporting the bookmark file - many had been deleted months ago.

I keep Firefox automatically fully up to date on the release channel.

If the exported html contains more than the visible bookmarks on the Firefox that is exporting them, it's not just inconvenient but it's also a serious privacy problem.

My exported bookmark file was 1.7Mb, for no more than 100 bookmarks. What's happening here and how can I stop it happening again?

I recently updated my system and it removed the toolbar at the top of the page. Please tell me how I can return my bookmarks up top. I like that better than having to open up a side bar and search for them.

I read some old information on doing it but it didn't help. So please give me some simple steps in order to do to return my toolbar back to the top of the page. PS. Please when you give us an update is there anyway to keep the system from changing these things. It really irks me.
