  • How can I get the new arrangement to be displayed in the "Recently Bookmarked" window?

or

  • Can I delete the "Recently Bookmarked" window so the manually-rearranged bookmarks in the Library window are displayed in the "Recently Bookmarked" window?

Hello,

I am running FF 78.0.1 on W10. I had to upgrade to a new laptop from W7 but also running FF.

On my other computer I had a star button that had rounded tips that was located just to the left of the bookmark star. The rounded tip star simply performed the two step action of clicking the bookmark star and then clicking Remove Bookmark, but all with one click.

After moving to this new setup I miss this feature. I have searched this site and the internet and found no references as to how to add a button that performs the actions.

Does anyone have an idea on how to get a button like this with these features?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I have my bookmarks sorted into folders and I want to search a specific folder. I went to Bookmarks>Show All Bookmarks and I selected the folder I want, which happens to be Quilting. I know I have a bookmark for a quilt with pine trees so I put tree in the Search Bookmarks box and I get every bookmark with the word tree. Not just bookmarks in Quilting but in every folder. Can you search just a specific folder?

Hello Community

Do hope someone can help?

Have tried all suggestions in Support area on topic: Lost/Recover Bookmarks. Also spoke to Windows Support and was told to call Mozilla Firefox Technical Support. I've been unable to find a number.

I had a Windows update around the same time as a Firefox update, May/June, only realised all saved bookmarks prior to June 2020 have disappeared. This has never happened before.

Urgently need to find out if there's a method of retrievel or have it confirmed that all of these very important bookmarks are permanently lost.

Thank you in advance

This afternoon I came in and my computer was off unexpectedly. After restarting, firefox looked odd and I noticed all my settings and bookmarks have all disappeared. I tried "restoring" them, but it says "unable to process backup file" and nothing changes. It doesn't matter what day i select, it will not restore. Something just isn't right with it. Seems its a new firefox sync thing that wasn't there before. Thanks

Good day! I recently had trouble adding bookmarks to my favorites lists. Previously, when you press the keys "ctrl+D", a window opens for choosing where to save the tab (bookmarks bar, bookmarks menu), and now when you press the specified combination, everything immediately falls into the other bookmarks folder .... Is this problem solved? In the settings, I could not find.

Windows and/or Firefox updated recently and something odd is happening. If I open Firefox from my desktop I can access my bookmarks, no problem. If I read my emails in Windows Live Mail and click on a link from an email to a website, the web page opens but I cannot access my bookmarks from this window. They just aren't there. I have to go and open Firefox from the desktop or from the icon in the menu bar.

Anyone have an idea what happened and how to fix?

when i choose show your bookmarks i have the correct list and favicons as i had in previous versions of firefox ,im using the light theme and its applicable to all themes,so here is the issue..moving your mouse pointer over the selected bookmark use to give it a dark blue highlight and any bookmark you chose would highlight like this,now i have no highlight on placing the cursor over it,just a text box in mono showing the url this seems a bit vague when moving over several bookmarks and none is highlighted.ive recently moved to windows 10 pro and was clean install and up to date with a new profile on firefox .only the bookmarks were a html file imported from a usb stick so cant see that being an issue. firefox is also up to date with adblocker ultimate as the only addon.
