  1. 1 When I open firefox there is a bookmarks toolbar displayed at the top.
  1. 2 When I go Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > click Bookmarks Toolbar > the bookmarks don't match what I see in the browser in #1 above.

How do I fix this?

I uploaded a screen shot of the browser toolbar and the application bookmarks toolbar.

Do you see that they are not the same in my attached image?

The browser tool bar has PurpC after FamilyS. Application (in manage book marks) the bookmarks toolbar has LFTWeb after FamilyS. I want the browser to match what is in the application Bookmark Toolbar.

I have turned sync off, that caused the issue in the first place. I had a recent saved bookmark file, that matches what is in the application, it is not updating the toolbar in the browser.

Thanks, Stacey

Hi All my icons changed to a globe image yesterday. I don't know why. However, I discovered that if I opened a bookmark, the correct icon reappeared. With 30 bookmarks to work on, this seemed like a lot of time, BUT your can "Open All Bookmarks in Tabs" and if you wait long enough, all your icons will be restored to those which the websites supply.

Hello,

I have recently been having difficulties with my Firefox Bookmark bar at the top of the screen.

The addresses change and I cannot use them. They look different. I just updated them a day ago and they've already gone back to this look and don't work anymore.

Please see screenshot.

Thank you.

I would like to transfer my bookmarks (and my open tabs) from my Windows 10 laptop to a new Windows 11 laptop. I've looked at the questions and answers people have posted but its a complete mystery to me. I had thought that when I loaded Firefox onto the new PC and signed in, everything would automatically appear. I was successful in doing that with Chrome but Firefox is still my primary browser and I've had no luck. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

But when I add new a bookmark to one of my old folders that I imported the bookmark does not show up when I use the icon “Show your Bookmarks”. If I go to “Manage Bookmarks” and go to the file the bookmark it is there.

Hello,

I am working in Mac OS 13.2 and just reinstalled Firefox after my OS has to be wiped and restored due to a OS file being corrupted.

When I sign back into Firefox my bookmarks did not re-sync. I followed the “profile / manage bookmarks / restore” instruction, where reportedly Firefox keeps the last 15 back-ups, but I am only getting seeing back-up from the day I reinstalled the browser, so it’s empty.

How do I access my bookmark back ups from a few days ago?

Worst case, I have a time capsule back up. What is the file path to find a file to import Firefox bookmarks?

Thank you!

Some background first: To start with, I don't do clouds or file sharing, and almost no social media. I used to do bimonthly backups (to any of three external hard drives) until my wife died four years ago. Never thought about it again until very late December. Decided I'd do it on January 1. Hard drive crashed on December 29, on an older laptop running Windows 10. Paid an obscene amount of money for the (successful) data recovery effort, and have it all on an external hard drive. That older laptop had other (physical) problems as well, so I bought a new one running Windows 11 while the data recovery effort was going on. I've been using Firefox exclusively for 20 years, I imagine, and I've got hundreds of bookmarks. (I tend to do a lot of research.)

Current issue: When I installed Firefox on the new laptop, it wanted to import bookmarks, but of course, they weren't available. Got the recovery drive back. Researched... located the folders that Mozilla says contains the bookmarks. Stopped Firefox. ...AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles Renamed the folders therein. Copied the similarly named folders from the recovery drive to this location. (Names and/or extensions were similar, but not exact.) Fired up Firefox. Deep sigh. It didn't work. Stopped Firefox again. Renamed the file extensions. Fired up Firefox again. Back up and running again, your witness, I'm writing this.

So, it's not a matter of simple file substitution. Is there another way to recover bookmarks from a file?

Hello to the support team of Mozilla, I had a computer that cannot be reopened due to a virus and Malware. However, I have a bookmarks setting with Firefox that has not been imported. I did not have an account (or at least that I can remember) with Firefox. I just set up one today. I had written that I had an account under the username jackhsiao, but I was not able to log in.

I would like to know if I can import my bookmarks that were on the browser of my computer that I can no longer access.

Thank you,

So this crazy new update has broken my Firefox in these ways:

1. All my bookmarks on my bookmarks bar have been deleted. 2. I can't drag any new links to the bookmarks bar 3. Overflow menu for apps is empty and will only let me drag Firefox defaults to it such as settings. Dragging apps to it is impossible. It "is" possible to pin items by using the Chrome puzzle piece..

Firefox: 109.0 OS: Windows 10 Pro

Using troubleshooting mode has no effect.

I'm seeing multiple complaints, concerns, questions about bookmarks and favorites. I too do not see the Favorites/Bookmarks that use to be at the top of the window for Foxfire. I have looked all over for a setting to put this back on the main page and have found none. Bookmarks/Favorites should be part of the main window and easily accessible. It was a very poor choice to take it away. The "Other Bookmarks" does not come close to what I had in the bookmarks previously and how I had it organized. I will use another browser because this is so frustrating. I will check back from time to time to see when Mozilla/Foxfire is back to the way it was previously.

I am experimenting with changing from Microsoft Edge to Firefox. However, a couple of bookmarks that have favicons in Microsoft Edge do not appear to work in Firefox. Attached is a .gif showing me trying to add https://app.powerbi.com to the bookmark bar. You can see that there is an icon on the tab, along with an icon that appears when trying to drag to the bookmark bar. However, when it gets to the bookmark bar, it goes back to the default icon and does not show the actual favicon. The same thing happens when trying to add https://vscode.dev. However, both of those sites have favicon images in the bookmark bar on Microsoft Edge.

Any ideas on how to get the favicon to appear would be greatly appreciated. I understand that it may seem a pretty trivial thing, but I do a lot of screen recordings for my work, and want all of the icons on the bar to appear.

I would have no idea where to begin in coding such a thing.
