Is this possible? I like the sleekness of not having the bookmarks bar but it would be very helpful to have it popup when I open a new tab only. (I use this feature in Brave browser, but I prefer Firefox)

I searched the entire web and looked for add-ons and couldn't find a solution. I have attempted to create a custom chrome css file but that didn't work.

What can I do?

edit: added question mark to title.

I have recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox and imported passwords and bookmarks over. Everything seems to be fine except for icons in Bookmark Bar. For some reason are some of them showing up, but most of them are not. I have tried several things like:

  • delete all and import again
  • delete cache, history, etc.
  • delete favicons.sqlite from profile folder

But none of this helps.

Does anyone have any idea what else can I do?

Thank you.

I switched to firefox because Chrome is clunky, Edge is Edge and Opera doesn't support Truekey. So far I've liked everything, but I've had one real bad problem. I always use icon only bookmarks, because I don't like the text there. I've had the problem of the site not getting thumbnails for many sites, and it doesn't seem like there is any way to upload them. I'd really like it if there was a way to do this. Thanks.

I use firefox and just got a new pc. I want to have the same bookmarks toolbar on firefox on the new pc. How do I export my bookmarks toolbar from my old pc?

I tried exporting/importing the "bookmarks.html" file, but the toolbar on the new pc is empty. The bookmarks toolbar was not exported.

Do I have to recreate the toolbar by hand, one site at a time? That's very bad. I have literally hundreds of bookmarks on my firefox toolbar.

My FF just updated itself today. I only have my address bar and have gotten my Roboform toolbar back. I can open them from the bookmark icon but I want to add the toolbar that lets me open my bookmarks from there and I can't even find the dropdown that lets me see what toolbars are active. Whew this 30.0 has caused me headaches today! Thanks in advance.

Updated firefox and now all my bookmarks are being saved to other bookmarks. This is not helpful, because I either want it in my regular bookmarks or in a folder I will create later. Now, it's an added step and some place else that I'm forced to look at.

I had a MAJOR crash of my computer caused by a Windows Update. When I got the machine back, my bookmarks were gone. I tried to import them from an HTML file that was created just prior to the crash, but Firefox is not importing the bookmark file. I select the file, and nothing happens.

Where to from here??

I just updated firefox and was bookmarking a page but when I opened the bookmarks menu to check that it was there and delete the old version of the page the new bookmark was not present. On closer inspection I noticed it saved it to "other bookmarks" instead. How do I change the default save location back to the bookmark menu because as often as I update my bookmarks with newer pages having to manually select the bookmark menu is gonna get old really fast.

I'd like to first state that although the bookmarks are not showing up, the bookmarks bar is.

I don't know what has caused this but somehow, FF has stopped showing the bookmarks in the bookmarks bar. I also cannot drag and drop a link onto the bar either. When I try that, I get a circle with a slash through it.

I've tried a few things, including:

1. Installing Places Maintenance 2.0.3 add on and attempting a fix. 2. Backing up my bookmarks and deleting the places.sqlite file as stated here:

   http://kb.mozillazine.org/Bookmarks_history_and_toolbar_buttons_not_working_-_Firefox

Neither helped and has not allowed me to view old bookmarks or drag new bookmarks onto it.

NOTE that the bookmarks are still there. I can see them when I click on the bookmarks icon and show the Bookmarks Toolbar. Now that I think about it. They shouldn't be there should they? Shouldn't the bookmarks be wiped out? I didn't import them yet. The only thing that did change is that their icons disappeared when viewing them from the bookmarks menu.

This happened on my father's machine a few days ago according to him. I don't see any recent releases, so I'm not sure what it could be. Is it possible that he accidentally activated/deactivated something? He is almost blind and sometimes doesn't notice when he clicks on things.

This is not a question, but simply how to resolve this issue. There are many people who appear to have this issue, yet it remains unresolved in many of the threads/posts (especially those that appear on search). Many have utilized add-ons to address this, but many of these proposed solutions aren't compatible with the current versions of Firefox.

Solution: 1. Bring up Firefox's Advanced settings/config page by typing the following into your url bar: about:config 2. Search 'bookmarks' (or 'browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs' if you only want the exact preference name) 3. Locate 'browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs' and double click it to change the value from false to true.

Btw, Mozilla.. your workflow makes it rather difficult to create a support account (I understand you don't want everyone and anyone to just create accounts, but if your TSEs aren't answering questions, it'd be nice if you allowed others within the community to help). Also, purely just a suggestion, but your nomenclature/terminology on the Support page would be nice if it also referenced 'Mozilla Support account' rather than 'Mozilla account,' emphasizing that the user does not have an associated Support account, unless created.

Cheers!

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.
