For years had bookmarks in folders showing on Bookmark Toolbar. Today they are all gone. Still in my Bookmarks on the drop down Menu, but not appearing on the Toolbar. Please help. Can't seem to drop and drag them there. Also, the Bookmarks Toolbar keeps disappearing every time I go to look at a new tab.

MY BANKING IS HANDLED THROUGH A CERTAIN CREDIT UNION. THE CREDIT UNION HAS SECURITY FEATURE THAT YOU ARE COMPROMISING BY RECORDING A SPECIFIC PAGE AS A BOOKMARK "post login script page's should never be eligible for automatic bookmarking to a home page." This should never be done as that page becomes a shortcut to my bank account! THIS CREATES A SECURITY ISSUE for me as I could be locked out of my bank account. Some sensitivity and a bit of common sense is called for here!

Additionally; I have an Amazon Account and want my bookmark FOR AMAZON to remain at The Sign-in page. However, you opt to delete my bookmark for an advertising bookmark that does not take me to an Amazon Login. This creates an inconvenience and a problem.

One more item: I do not use any on-line tax preparer. NEVER! I do not use Turbo-Tax, H&R Block, or any other tax preparation service. MY BOOKMARKS GET DELETED SO YOU CAN PLACE AN ADVERT ON MY HOME PAGE THAT IS NOT JUST UNWELCOME BUT A SERIOUS INCONVENIENCE.

I get errors when importing my bookmarks from one laptop to another. I've tried importing HTML file and restoring from JSON file multiple times with multiple files. The bookmarks are not saved in any folder including the "imported bookmarks" folder. This is frustrating... Could you please help with this simple task?

Sir,

An account was opened in Firefox with this Gmail account: pmkamirul@gmail.com In which the user and password of different accounts were saved. Today 28.01.24 due to Windows problem on my laptop, I set up new windows again and installed Mozilla Firefox and tried to open the Mozilla account but it took about 15 minutes because I did not give the correct password. Later I reset the password and opened the Firefox account with the new password 01714303182 but even when the Firefox account was opened, nothing saved previously came back. Please help me to recover my previously saved data.

I will be grateful to you. Md. Amirul Islam 01714303182

I searched the forums, and it appears this issue has answers going back 12 years.

Answers explain how to get it to show up again. Basically, it amounts to turning the bar off and back on again.

The problem is it WILL happen again. Why? It's been 12 years and no explanation as to why it happens or how to fix it permanently.

None of the Firefox updates over the years have addressed this either.

At some point in the winter of '21 I created a folder of bookmarks that was saved in the 'bookmarks menu'. At a later date, hard to say when but probably '22 or early '23 I deleted these bookmarks. I now desperately need to recover them.

The oldest auto-backup from 'Manage Bookmarks' -> 'Import and Backup' -> Restore is dated mid '23 and does not contain the deleted bookmarks.

Is there any hope of recovering them? For example via the Recycle Bin or by using a data recovery tool? Or will they have been overwritten?

Firefox has stopped saving history and I am unable to save any bookmarks. This seems to have happened recently for no reason I can understand. I haven't made any changes. I use a VPN but was doing so before this happened. I have checked all the settings and also deleted the places.sqlite file. When I click <bookmark current tab> nothing happens and history shows as empty.

Bookmarks. I can't seem to log into my saved sites on any given day. I can log in on Monday but on Tues it will not log me in. Hell, it will not even show that I've got the saved bookmark at times. Yesterday I did banking from my PC just fine and today I tried again to log in and it failed, so I had to deleted everything AGAIN and started fresh. This has been happening for 2 months and it is affecting ALL my logins. I get locked out, delete, refill and repeat....I've had to call my banks and amazon because the switch over from Google was a gong show...I got locked out of every account. I can log in on my phone while looking at this stupid computer telling me NOPE you login password or name is wrong. Oh, and the pc doesn't sync the bookmarks with my phone so I've hand to manually add the bookmark.....I've actually had to carry my physical bookmark book for a month because I'm on the move a lot and couldn't trust firefox would let me into any of my sites....

I just downloaded the latest Firefox browser, and it asked me to import all of the my bookmarks, but it only grabbed the ones from Chrome. All of my former bookmarks that were saved in the previous Firefox browser are gone! Most of my useful bookmarks were in Firefox. Where are they, and how do I get them back?
