Hi,

I have spent almost an hour trying to solve this and have come out empty handed and frustrated. Firefox must've updated recently and changed things so that my bookmark dropdown menu is gone. Now, when I want to access a bookmark, I have to click on "manage bookmarks" which opens a new library window and I have to then find it in there. It's a lot more time consuming and inefficient. Used to just be able to scroll down after one click of the bookmark menu.

I've searched other answers to this problem, many of which involved people's bookmarks being stored in the "other bookmarks" folder and being told to move them into the "bookmarks menu" folder which would cause them to dropdown. I've tried moving them into all 3 folders: Bookmarks Menu, Other bookmarks, and bookmarks toolbar, and there is no change. Here is a screenshot of what I see when I open my bookmarks:

  • To clarify, the "recent bookmarks" that shows up is of no interest to me and would also like to remove that. I don't want a dropdown of recent bookmarks, I want a dropdown of ALL bookmarks.

PLEASE if you can help me I would be eternally grateful.

I use the Bookmarks Bar extensively. But all the folders are the same color. I would find it much easier to find things quickly if I could change individual folder colors.

Any way to do this?

I'm already using Jscher's excellent UserChrome script to make the folders an attractive yellow, instead of gray. But can this be done for individual foders?

Not sure why the bookmarks was changed to double spaced, but I do not like it at all. Please post a work around to make the bookmarks single spaced. I was able to change how they are spaced in the bookmarks bar, but not the rest of the bookmarks that are at the top of the page under the favorites icon.

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!

I followed the instructions to alphabetize my bookmarks in the folder from where I imported them from Microsoft Edge. When I open the bookmark icon in Firefox, all my bookmarks are alphabetized form "y" to "a". How do I put them in alphabetical order?

Sorry about the image quality, I couldn't get a screen capture so I photographed the display.

Thank you

I went to "Show All Bookmarks" and searched for a bookmark. I want to know what folder I put the bookmark in. I can't figure out how to do so.

Someone answered this question before:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274811

"You can open this bookmark in a tab, possible in "Work Offline mode". If you click the highlighted star on the location bar then you can check via the Folder line where in the folder tree this bookmark is located (second down arrow and use the scroll bar)."

How do I get into "Work Offline mode"? Also, why is this so difficult?

The most recent Windows update had a window that popped up unprompted about the new Microsoft Edge. I tried to get out of it, because I am not interested in using Microsoft Edge. There was no "cancel" or red "X" button. "Close window" on the taskbar did nothing. So it seemed like I had to proceed in order to get this thing off my screen.

It asked whether I wanted to transfer all my info from Firefox over to Microsoft Edge, I said no, and now my Firefox bookmarks have vanished.

I was unable to do the "Restore" process from this link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-bookmarks-from-backup-or-move-them#w_restoring-from-backups

I cannot find a directory called "windows.old" to do the "Restoring bookmarks after upgrading or downgrading Windows 10" process

I haven't synced my bookmarks anywhere else so that isn't a restore option.

After using CCleaner, on opening FireFox I discovered an unwanted, 'other bookmarks' tab sitting on my toolbar. It won't move (click & drag), and I want rid of it. I like having the double right arrow at the edge of the toolbar like it use to be. When I did a full browser 'refresh', it disappeared!

However, on using CCleaner again, the darn thing reappeared.

How to I tell FireFox that I would like to be in charge of how it displayed, rather than some errant code that someone else thinks i want?

I just refreshed firefox because it was constantly hanging. However, my library icon is now missing. I have the bookmark star in the address bar but I no longer have the Library icon in the ribbon. When I click on the menu bar Bookmarks is shown but Library is not. When I click on Bookmarks I see a list of saved sites, but that's not a convenient way to get to them. Does anyone know how to get the Library icon back?

Thank you

Version 84.0.2. Windows 10. I inadvertently opened a second FF window which had no tabs and no bookmarks toolbar. I closed FF which had many open tabs and many bookmarks toolbar items. Now all tabs are lost and all toolbar entries are lost. On reopening FF, only the FF with no tabs and no bookmarks toolbar will open. I have searched and read many "solutions", but nothing that I can get to work. Does anybody actually know what can be done or that nothing can be done. I had not yet reinstalled my general backup program prior to this so there is no other backup and all I have to rely on is FF alone. Are at least the bookmarks toolbar items stored somewhere even if the tabs are not recoverable?

All bookmarks are there except for bookmarks toolbar items.

I would like to restore both tabs and the bookmarks toolbar if possible. If anything can be done, can anyone articulate some clear instructions?
