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'.

With the 'Show all Bookmarks' page open on my MAC desktop monitor screen i accidentally deleted all of my bookmark folders (listed alphabetically) following those beginning with the letter 'P'. I am in REAL trouble unless i can restore those deleted folders to the active list.

i tried following the suggestion that i open up my 'profile' in 'Library' and i found the deletedbookmarks file. But that file seems just to list deleted bookmarks by recent dates.. Whereas I need to restore the list of deleted bookmark FOLDERS to my active bookmark list and status.

I hope someone can help me. I'd be willing to provide a telephone number, though I guess that's generally inadvisable. Otherwise my e-mail address -- which you may already have -- is xxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxx.xxx

Thank you for any help.

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.

Bookmark toolbar arrow is gone/bookmark toolbar seems truncated

Issue: the bookmark toolbar arrow (the one that shows bookmarks that don't fit on the toolbar) is gone from my browser, and the toolbar itself seems truncated (only like 7/8 of the toolbar is filled).

I didn't change any settings or installed any add-ons that could have to do with this. It just disappeared one day, I didn't even notice it at first.

What I tried:

  • I launched Firefox in safe mode, didn't fix it
  • I removed my userChrome.css file, didn't fix it
  • when I cut the bookmarks and paste them into the toolbar, the arrow shows, but when I relaunch the browser it is gone again

See photo for what it looks like (ignore the anonymous favicons, I changed them temporarily with userChrome to preserve privacy, but without userChrome the issue still stands).

Anyone has an idea what happened and how to fix this? Thanks.

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?

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.

Bookmarks toolbar missing - but in just some windows

For about a month now I have had an issue with my Bookmarks toolbar disappearing. I have a few different windows that I always keep open and each has a few tabs open or pinned. On just some of those windows, the "bookmarks toolbar" has disappeared (it was there, then it was not). I definitely have "bookmarks toolbar" checked in customizing, so that is not the issue. I found a trick that if I move one or more tabs into a new window (slide to side) that the new window would then have the bookmarks toolbar back. BUT, when I tried that today, I would only have the bookmarks toolbar showing when the window was reduced in size, but if I expanded to full screen, it disappears. How do I get my "bookmarks toolbar" to ALWAYS show in all windows? The only thing that I have changed in my behavior is that I now keep several tabs pinned... wondering if somehow that is causing problems? Please note, I have tried resetting customizing and rechecking "bookmarks toolbar" but that has not resolved the issue. The only extensions or any add-ons that I have are "Adblocker Ultimate" and "Facebook Container". And no themes. I have not "refreshed firefox" because of how much work that would involve to save history, get eveything back to the way I like it, etc., so I am hoping to not have to do that unless you know for sure that would resolve my problem. Thanks.

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.
