Hi. I'm trying to organise my bookmarks, and whilst I am able to add, move and remove bookmarks themselves, I can't do anything about folders, even duplicates. Deleting in Firefox's GUI does nothing, and if I try to use a bookmark managing extension, it doesn't work either. What's going on?

I've been digging around in my system for a corresponding .txt file or whatever to manually edit, but it seems it's all on Mozilla's servers, or the file is in some obscure format I can't easily edit. Is this something to do with Firefox Sync?

Why do my Bookmark Icons on my Bookmarks Tool Bar intermittently show up as the Target Symbol, I see three websites with this symbol at the moment. If I click on the bookmark sometimes it reverts to the correct icon. Any solutions to stop this? Thanks

Ubuntu 20.04, Unity 7

After upgrading from FF 91.0.2 to FF 92.0 it looks like the vertical spacing between the bookmarks in my bookmark tab folders increased. The bookmarks are less useful now. Is there a way to decrease this spacing?

Hi community,

Somehow the Other Bookmarks folder showed up at the end of my bookmarks bar. I am pretty sure it was not there yesterday. I assume that somehow I accidentally placed it there.

The problem is that I can't either move it, or remove it from there. When you select it, delete option is grey and not available. Does anyone now exactly how to remove it from the bookmarks bar?

Thank you people... :)

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?

Hello everyone :)

From a folder, I have loads of Firefox profiles from different eras. I am looking for a way to export all the bookmarks of each of the profiles to an HTML file like the manual method (Library > Import and backup > Export bookmarks to formal HTML), but all in an automatic way by script. I like the HTML export from Firefox because it allows you to quickly navigate using keywords, either in links or in the folder names I gave.

Is there a simple solution that would reuse, for example, the same export code as Firefox ?

Thanks in advance With adelphity estebann

I am trying to transfer my firefox bookmarks from my old computer's hard drive to my new computer. they are both fairly current laptops, and i believe both are on windows 10 (the new one is on, i think, whatever the newest version of windows is). I cannot turn on my old computer, so I can't export the bookmarks, but the hard drive is fully functional. The problem is, I can't find where the bookmarks are located. I have tried looking through the files, I have "show hidden files" on, I have tried manually searching for "places.sqlite" and I have tried doing the %APPDATA% thing. I can see other folders on the hard drive very easily, so it shouldn't be the fault of the hard drive. If you know how I am able to find the files, please go through it step-by-step; I'm not proficient in computer things, and something that may seem very obvious and instinctive to you may be what I'm messing up on.

I need to copy browsing history and bookmarks from one laptop with FF v.60 to another laptop with FF v.52.

I know there are different ways of doing this, but in my case I don't have use of the source laptop. BUT, I do have the full profile saved in both laptops. I also had saved a json bookmarks copy, but it's 5 days old. No huge deal but I had some major restructuring of my bookmarks yesterday.

There's also sync, but I tried to just sync history and it does nothing. Plus I'm not sure if it's going to sync to "last updated" which is actually the other (destination) laptop with FF v52.

In my profile I see bookmarks clearly, but no history. They are both in places.sqlite? Should I just copy this? What else would be copied?

By the way, in bookmarkbackups folder, I see the last jsonlz4 file is from June 9 12:10 am, not June 10 12:10 am as it should have been perhaps. Does this jsonlz4 file work with the restore command of "import and backup"?

Thank you!

Hello. Since I use the bookmark bar and fullscreen mode a lot, I would like to be able to see the bookmark bar in fullscreen, not on every tab, but only in a new (empty) tab, so that I can avoid disabling fullscreen to access the bookmark bar and at the same time not having any part of the interface visible unless I'm in a new tab. Thanks in advance for any reply!

As of version 91 I think it was, around middle of 2021 (last year), in the dropdowns from the across-to-the-top bookmarks menu, the items are spaced out vertically way too much. So much space is wasted. I like the spacing they had before that version. I just want to go on record as giving feedback that I don't like it, and wish it went back to the original spacing. I have looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1346987 and know there's all sorts of weird stuff I can do to customize my Firefox to get the spacing I want, however, my point with this post is to get feedback back to the Firefox developers to see if they will consider changing it back. If posting here is not the best way to get feedback back to the developers/designers/product-owners, please let me know the best way. I couldn't find another way.

I'd like to have, in my one firefox account, a 'private' profile with my private life bookmarks and a 'work' profile with my work life bookmarks. However, this doesn't seem to work. I open firefox with work profile and see my work bookmarks, then I close and reopen with private profile and see my private bookmarks, then I close and reopen again with work profile and now I still see my private bookmarks instead of my work bookmarks. Firefox just unsolicitedly takes the private bookmarks over to the work profile. This can't be how it's supposed to be, right? Because what would be the point of having different profiles? I hope you can help me with this.

I use Firefox to read books in pdf format. I want to record the location everytime I close the pdf file so that I can easily go back to where I leave last time. But I notice no matter where I am in the file, the url does't change. I think it's the reason why everytime I click the bookmarked file and the Firefox just open the file on the first page, not the location I leave last time. Is there any way to record the location I leave?

I used to have the bookmarks sidebar open whenever I open Firefox. Now Firefox always opens without the sidebar. I have to click on the sidebar icon every time I want to open the sidebar. The sidebar stays open when I open new tabs. But when I close then open Firefox, the sidebar is not there. Must be a change with one of the updates. Is there a way to set the sidebar to always open when opening Firefox? Maybe in about:config?

I have version 85.0.1 (64 bit) on Win 10. I just created Bookmark folders and started moving individual bookmarks into the appropriate folders. How do I select multiple bookmarks so I can move a bunch at a time to it's folder? I tried CTL-CLICK but that doesn't select but rather opens the link. When I open "Show all Bookmarks it lists only the bookmark folders (which I can open and do multiple selection). But why aren't the bookmarks not in folders showing up? I can see them in to bookmark toolbar and in the >> sidebar. Have hundreds of bookmarks I collected- want to move some want to delete some. Selecting multiple for drag and drop would make my project go unbelievably faster.
