Hail all:

Now, Firefox has a very, VERY simple Bookmark Manager, that basically only allows to add, remove, and single-bookmark edit.

Now, I have for instance 6+K Youtube Links, which all, annoyingly, end with " - YouTube". I want to remove that idiocy, but to edit 6+K bookmarks, one by one?

Can you add a way to mass-edit bookmarks?

Also, can you add a "Explorer Tree Style" Bookmark manager, that shows all bookmarks in true Explorer style (As in:

All Bookmarks
--- Bookmarks Toolbar
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
------------- ...
-------- Folder 2
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...
--- Bookmarks Menu
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
-------------  ...
-------- Folder 2
------------ SubFolder 1
-----------------Bookmark 1
-----------------Bookmark 2
-----------------  ...
------------ SubFolder 2
-----------------Bookmark 1
-----------------Bookmark 2
-----------------  ...
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...
--- Other Bookmarks
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
-------------  ...
-------- Folder 2
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...

(without the "-" 's of course, this was my way to represent the folder and "bookmark file" system in tree form), with an option to see doubles in their respective folder/subfolder, with the normal editing functions? Since ... that would ultimately be darn helpful? Especially when implemented DIRECTLY into Firefox, so no additional tools are needed (add-ons) since these never have what I actually need.

I have a 700+ Bookmarks backup file, which says all. Far too many bookmarks to sift through, manually, without decent tools, thus the need to do it "one at a time".

Thank you very much.

I just had a Mozilla/Firefox update. After it was done, Firefox opened. So far so good..... When it opened, the very first thing I noticed is that my bookmarks button was not on my toolbar. The second thing I noticed is that all my bookmarks are gone. GONE!! I use and count on these bookmarks daily, and not they are nowhere to be found.

WHY? This is not the first time that Firefox has had an update and has changed my settings and lost things. Updating is one thing, but there is no reason why Firefox should be changing settings - and now, in this case, wiped my bookmarks clean.

Any help? I'm frustrated and angered that years of bookmarks are gone...... Can anyone help me? Thank you.

I'm unable to save bookmarks in most of my folders. I can occasionally get a bookmark saved in one folder, but it will disappear and many folders no matter what I try no bookmark can be saved. I also am unable to export new bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox.

I've tried everything on the 'Can't add, change or save bookmarks - How to fix' page and nothing has worked and it has been incredibly frustrating and I'm not sure where to go from here. Please advise.

I am aware that Firefox has three options for bookmarks: Always Show, Only Show on New Tab, and Never Show.

Either through a setting, an extension, or magic... I want the new tabs to always show the bookmarks BUT I want the other tabs to allow me to toggle showing and hiding the bookmarks (without affecting the new tab at all). How can I achieve this? Is there a deep setting I am missing?

Are there workarounds too? I would settle for a homepage that showed bookmarks (right now I have the option to toggle 'shortcuts', I wish I could also toggle bookmarks there). I'd even settle for an AHK script to force show the bookmarks on new tab (if hidden).

Any help is appreciated!

I tried to connect to a site I previously bookmarked and have connected to many times. When I tried yesterday it couldn't connect. A message on my screen said that it might be because Firefox was blocking cookies. I checked and it isn't. When I type the address manually into the address bar it connects without a problem. I deleted the old bookmark and set up a new one after I connected. When I navigate away from the page, I still can't connect with the new bookmark.

Hello, I have an extensive collection of bookmarks in bookmark folders. A few are a more important than others.

To me, the easy solution would be when I could colour a few folders - say blue or red.

I searched the web a bit and this is a quite hotly discussed topic. If solutions are offered, it's adding code etc. That's not for me and the results are dubious anyway.

Firefox has been around for a very long time. There are updates quite frequently. None ever feature colouring bookmark folders. Is that really so difficult? I realize this is not of vast importance, but it would be helpful to have a feature like that.

Is there a particular reason why this seems to be so difficult?

Hoping for a helpful answer.

Regards

1) where is all of your Firefox backups located? 2) i just had some random places.sqlite file corruption and did i therefore lose all of my bookmarks also somehow after renaming the corrupt 'places' file? 3) does it not even backup all of the bookmarks either if it cant read/write the 'places' file normally for some time? 4) how is this kind of stuff even possible with Firefox when everything else works completely fine and normal? 5) is the .jsonlz4 file compressed to a smaller size than html somehow?

(Windows-7/32 bit) I'm using the left sidebar to display my bookmarks. The last few FireFox updates have caused a problem (currently running 101.0.1 but have noticed the problem with previous versions). Unpredictably, when changing web pages, the bookmarks menu just rolls up for no apparent reason. Hitting CTRL-B/CTRL-B restores it, but it's also an annoyance, it does it several times a day. Why does it do that at all? Anyone have any ideas?
