I used Apple Migration Assistant to move the entirety of my wife's old iMac (the old computer won't accept updates, so her machine was not secure) to a new one. The migration operation appeared smooth and essentially perfect.

Somehow my Bookmarks have overwritten my wife's (years ago, I turned Synch = ON, was that it? Synch is OFF now). The bookmarks are still OK on the old computer, so how do I locate and move that info to the new machine "AND BE SURE TO GET IT RIGHT"? My wife is the family business manager, so her bookmarks are Insurance, Banking, Healthcare, etc.

I've done some searching, but there are thousands of posts, I can't wade through all of that.

Prior to FF 94.0.2 saving a bookmark opened an option to select the folder in which it was to be placed. With 94.0.2 the bookmark is saved directly to the last folder selected with no option to select a folder. I have to perform an extra action immediately to edit the bookmark location. If this isn't done before closing the tab I have no way of finding the bookmark again. Please revert

I cannot find a folder in Bookmarks. When I edit a bookmark I see the folder it in. It is actually a sub folder. I know it is a sub folder of another folder but I dont know what the parent folder is. I want to keep related bookmarks together. I can navigate to one web page in the sub folder from memory so I can see the folder it is in but have no way of determining the parent folder.

After a crash and reboot where I lost my bookmarks, I discovered a "file" of them in a folder I had created for another purpose on my desktop. I don't know how they got there! file:///C:/Users/Alan/OneDrive/Desktop/MECHANICS/bookmarks.html Perhaps saved in OneDrive and migrated somehow during reboot? Anyway, is there a way to transfer these into my newly downloaded Firefox browser? Thanks!

I've been using FVD Speed Dial Addon, plus its Everhelper Sync, to manage my Bookmarks: apparently, they're no longer supported by Firefox (last Update by Nimbus 2 years ago)! FVD was really convenient for Syncing & Saving my Bookmarks: what do you suggest I do, now? I don't want to lose all my Bookmarks!

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.

Hi all I have scoured the articles but found no solution to this. I reinstalled Firefox on my Mac, and somehow deleted all previous profiles. I did not have 'sync' enabled, nor a FF account.

I have found a places.sqlite file on my backup external hard drive. But my current profile has an places.sqlite file already. Can I merge them??? Or can I only replace?

Hi - When I select "Add Bookmark" from the Bookmark dropdown menu on the menu bar, the popup menu to select the location (folder) to place the bookmark does not open. The bookmark is created, but it is created in the last place that a bookmark was added. I can use "Edit Bookmark" from the menu bar to open the pop up to a select location after adding it and am able to select a new location. This started several days to a week ago. I don't know if it correlated with an update (or anything else). Thanks!
