My computer 'guru' reinstalled Win10 in order to correct a serious problem. ALL of my programs were gone and I was left with a raw Win10. 6/12/2023 was last date prior to the disaster. I reinstalled Firefox. Using the "firefox.exe -p" I can only find the default profile. I DO HAVE a full backup done using the Win7 Backup and Restore feature. How do I resurrect my most recent profile? I will need to find the files(s) manually from the b/u. When I did a Full Restore the bookmarks didn't appear. Where and what files am I looking for? The attached screen shots from the b/u may be of help. [removed email from public forum]

I'm having an issue when saving bookmarks, I'll find a nice recipe, save it to my recipe folder, little blue star will show on the page showing its bookmarked but when I go to the folder, it's nowhere to be seen. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here, it use to work just fine before.

Please don't go technical on me. I read exactly how to bookmark a website. I understand how to create folders. What I'm lost about is how do I create a folder in my toolbar, and not see the website in the menu? I have tried to put a saved site in a toolbar folder, then delete it from the drop-down menu, but once it is deleted the toolbar folder is empty. The folder I created still exist though.

Then I tried to create a folder and put it in the Toolbar. In the drop down menu I left specific websites.

When I closed the browser everything was gone from the folders and the drop down menu.

All I need it to create folders in the Toolbar area. Leave "non-duplicated" sites in the drop down menu. I just don't need to loose everything again, I spent hours doing this, I'm thankful I was able to do a recovery, except it was the last date I used days ago.

Again, this is what I need, not how yours is.

Thanks

I have a new laptop. I installed the Firefox browser and synced my bookmarks to the new machine using Sync. Everything came across as expected but I cannot get my bookmarks to show in the Bookmarks Toolbar. I have pretty much exhausted the solutions that I have found on the support pages with no success. Please advise,

I have realized I am flooded by alien bookmarks coming into the browser. I have never used any sync options and I made my account within the browser on this very day. I am not using firefox on any other devices and I am 100% sure these are not my bookmarks, they have 0 visits and they appear to be added at one moment. It appears that someone else's bookmarks had been loaded into my collection. I don't know where to look for the source and the Sync option only shows one connected device.

As of a week or two ago I can no longer save URLs to bookmarks folders in my bookmarks toolbar. I can drag and drop it but nothing happens, does not save in that folder. Neither can I save a URL via clicking on the star then choosing a folder. Doesn't stick in the folder. How can I fix this.

I have lost all my Bookmarks - they have the same name, but the icon & address is wrong.

  • This is on-going = I cannot Bookmark without it occuring.
  • I have attempted to restore to a previous point, but the issue did not resolve.
  • This occurs over all my synced devices. (I have now stopped Firefox syncing.)
  • The incorrect icon & address is from a 'trusted' site (ie. national govt, email provider etc) that I have previously visited, but never Bookmarked.

Please help as I use Bookmarks professionally & have built an excellent database over many years.

- thank you -

Hey there, I was using one of my macs today and it suddenly started updating. It was taking ages and seemingly stalled, so I closed the app.

Now, all our bookmarks and history is gone. Also, the now updated version is not showing my new history etc.

Is there any way to retrieve our original bookmarks, history and passwords?

View bookmarks with one click (i.e. from a top level interface control)

I would like to be able to view my bookmarks (not the toolbar) with one click and then open a bookmark with the second click. Is this possible?

The interface has top level controls for a promotional "feature" called "Pocket"; the extensions menu of all things; "toggle reader view" (which inexplicably opens some kind of FAQ page and which has forced me to retype this question by opening something else in the window instead of merely changing the display of the current window), and "list all tabs"—basically a bunch of features that I imagine very very very few people ever use. But no button for bookmarks? What am I missing?

Hello - Firefox to Safari bookmark syncing used to work seemlessly between pc and ipad. Noticed it's no longer working. I've done all the resetting/restarting/logging out/uninstalling/reinstalling recommended. It still won't sync. I ended up installing Firefox on the iPad to get the bookmarks from PC. That sync works (takes a while sometimes). But it will not ever update the IOS from the last time it worked (maybe 3 months ago). I can erase IOS bookmarks and reload from iCloud, but the files are months old.

Has this function just been removed?

I have all my bookmarks that I use all the time and once I click on them that web site works just fine. I have two more web sites that are bookmarked and every time i want to log on to them it comes back "Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.kingsoopers.com/" on this server. Reference #18.9cfe19b8.1688244058.3e96aa41". Can anyone tell me what is going on and why do I have this problem with just two bookmarked web sites when all the others work fine.\?
