Hi, I have lost the "file, edit, history, bookmark ect" I have tried to resolve this myself but all the help on the forum starts with click on the "3 vertical bars" I do not have this option, all I have is 3 dots which directs to "settings" which offers no help for the bookmark toolbar ? I have trolled the FF help pages but they all say the same thing to start with the "3 bar" icon. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've been using FF for 9yrs and have had no problems at all. Thankyou in advance.

Good afternoon. My Firefox has been updated to the new version but I noticed that the font size in my bookmarks dropdown menu has increased. I would prefer to make it smaller as it used to all fit in one column without the need to scroll. Could someone tell me how, or if this can be done with the new version? Thanks and hope to hear back soon.

The latest version has been loaded onto my PC. The list of bookmarks, in the drop down menu, has increased in the spacing between the lines. Now my bookmarks list goes off the bottom of the screen, whereas before my bookmarks were all visible. Is there a simple way of reducing the gap between the lines, the font size is OK.

I have been a loyal Firefox user for umpteen years – but no more! Without asking, my browser updated to version 89, and immediately, I didn’t like it. It looked washed out, difficult to tell the difference between tabs (I routinely have 30+ tabs open at once), plus it was slower. The biggest “peeve” was when I tried to enter a Google search question in the “Search” box, but Firefox kept jumping up the URL bar. Gawd I hate that! That did it! I decided to revert back to version 88 but you decided you would “punish” me for my decision. I lost all my bookmarks, passwords and preferences. I am a computer support volunteer and I work primarily with senior citizens, however I try to help anyone who needs my help. When I setup a new computer for a client, I usually install Firefox and Chrome, explaining that many people do not like the default browser that comes with Windows. From this point on, I will no longer recommend nor install Firefox. You lost a customer today. Congratulations.

I was really angry that there seems to be no way to actually send an email "TO" Mozilla. Instead, they depend on you volunteers to take the heat for them. If you know of anyway to actually get this information to them, I would appreciate it.

I needed to have Windows 10 wiped and reinstalled from my laptop, and the guy who did it cloned my files to save everything. I saw instructions on another post on how to find the bookmarks file under Profile, but it didn't do anything after confirming that it would wipe out all current bookmarks. What am I doing wrong?

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.

per the subject, some of my bookmark HREF records in the file are very short, like this:

<A HREF="https://www.enterprise.com/" ADD_DATE="1605967404" LAST_MODIFIED="1605967416" ICON_URI="https://www.enterprise.com/etc.clientlibs/uscc-static/clientlibs/web-resources/resources/icon-192x192.png">enterprise</A>

but then some of them contain thousands of bytes of token data, hash data, or some other kind that seems to be some sort of output from the page that is bookmarked. here's the truncated version of just such a record i see:

<DT><A HREF="https://www.uscellular.com/support/contact" ADD_DATE="1605967404" LAST_MODIFIED="1605967416" ICON_URI="https://www.uscellular.com/etc.clientlibs/uscc-static/clientlibs/web-resources/resources/icon-192x192.png" ICON="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAMAAAADAC........>US Cellular</A>

but the continuation of that data will go on for 100+ lines. why is this? i have attached an image that shos most of the endless data I see. thanks.

Bookmarks is broken. Again. When I got on my computer in the morning, there were double bookmarks. Since I didn't look in the folders of the bookmarks, I deleted one version and then found out that all the folders in my normal bookmarks folder were gone. I tried restarting, restoring, and importing bookmarks. Each time, it ends up with there either being no bookmarks or just one single folder with all of my bookmarks not in their folder, without logos. And when I try to export HTML files, I can't find them on my computer. This may be related to me recently turning on iCloud and turning it back off and then back on. In one of the restore files, everything was in their proper folders (although still no logos - just the black Internet sign) but it didn't work and soon reverted back to the single folder.

Hi. The message "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..." has appeared at the top of my Firefox window. I don't think it's been there for more than a couple of days, so it must have been added by a recent update. I already have my bookmarks available just fine, so is there a way to get rid of the message? Thanks!

Hi guys i'm new in the forum so i have no idea if anybody else allready had my problem,i've tried to fix it myself but i cant seem to get it done. Yesterday i had a problem with my OS linux,and i had to reinstall the system,while i was pretty sure i had all bookmarks saved in an external HD i went straight to a quick format and reinstall of the OS,after installed all the due system update.

The Problem:

While i was importing the bookmarks.html i stored in external HD i noticed that nothing was being added in the bookmarks of Firefox,so i tried few times just in case i was doing something wrong but still nothing was being added in the bookmarks,so i tried to import the bookmarks on Tor Browser and the same thing happened nothing was imported. So it came to my mind that the .html file could've been damaged. Now i tried many ways to open the file either in command line or text editor i even tried using libreoffice,in the case of text editor,command line such gedit,pico,nano it loaded the file but it was heavily encrypted,in the case of libreoffice shortly after i tried to open the file popped up a message telling me that the file was corrupted and libreoffice couldn't read it and stopped.

I need a solution to either fix the .html file or decrypt it so i can recover the web addresses inside and it would be very bad for me since my bookmarks.html is 3.3Mb large with ALOT of bookmarks inside.

Can anybody tell me how to?

Thank you in advance for any help or suggestion that may help me to retrieve my bookmarks. Ludo.

P.S. OS Linux BackBox 7 up to date along with it latest version of Firefox that update server provides me.

Is there anyway to restore the format (compactness) of the Bookmark Menus without setting the Automatic Updates to not automatically update and then downloading the 88.0.1 version? I hate to not have the Automatic Updates, for obvious reasons, but don't want to use the double space of the Bookmarks even more.
