hi,

I have a new install of firefox (78.7.1esr) on a new Apple Mac (10.15.7 Catalina). I used sync to sync bookmarks from an ubuntu install (85.0.1) onto the Mac.

The bookmarks arrived. They are visible on the bookmarks toolbar, bookmarks menu, and bookmarks / show all bookmarks. I can add new bookmarks using drag and drop, or by the bookmarks menu options. These bookmarks can be seen in the Bookmarks / Show All Bookmarks menu. But they do not appear in the bookmarks toolbar. It's as if there are 2 sets both started from the same sync.

  • Bookmarks added by drag and drop visible through the toolbar
  • Those added with add bookmark or show all bookmarks within the toolbar folder do not appear on the toolbar.

I've now got what looks like 2 sets that are drifting out of sync on the same latptop.


thanks for any help.

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to find in which folder a specific bookmark is contained ? I can do a search on the "Show all Bookmarks" library but it only shows the URL without the folder. In Chrome there is a useful feature which let you easily highlight the location. It's very strange that isn't possible in Firefox.

There is an archived post here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1161879 but the tricky workaround is not acceptable for me. Any ideas ? Thanks in advance Stefano

For well over a year, I have had this problem: Many times when I selected a bookmark, nothing happens. It does not go to the bookmarked site. I have tried the following things: 1. Start FF in safe mode. 2. changed OS from Windows 7 to Windows 10. 3. Made sure my OS and browser were up to date. 4. Tried different Antivirus programs.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you so much!

Hello guys,

first of all: Sorry for my bad english. Im trying to explain as well as I can.

I activated in Settings, that I only get suggestions from my bookmark (and not from Google etc.)

I entered on the bookmark a full reflink on Amazon (https://www.amazon.de/ref=as_li_ss_tl?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1638&creative=19454&linkCode=ur2&site-redirect=de&tag=wwwtwitcht0b2-21)

But when I enter on the bar Am.. the first suggestion is always https://www.amazon.de/ and not https://www.amazon.de/ref=as_li_ss_tl?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1638&creative=19454&linkCode=ur2&site-redirect=de&tag=wwwtwitcht0b2-21.

Even if I dont saved https://www.amazon.de/ . This happens with everysite that the main url is shown in first place, but not the one which i saved (and wanted to open).

Is there any solution?

Thank you for your time.

When I add a page to bookmarks, the bookmarks bar shows up under the search bar, the first time it happened I selected "never display" the bar, but after that, everytime I add another bookmark the bar shows again, even if I have the option to not show the bar selected, as I have to click it again for the bar to go away.

How can I make that bar not display anymore?

Why doesn't Shift + Delete delete a bookmark from a searchbar? Here is a simple example: Example of deleting history/bookmark

It works like a charm for history items but not for bookmarks. How to fix it? Maybe some options must be turned on? Since it is possible for deleting history items why it's not possible for bookmarks? Maybe you know any extension with this functionality?
