Hi, since yesterday, when I open Firefox, there is no menu anymore, neither my Bookmarks menu and I can't use my Keyboard for action. For example "command" N for a new window doesn't work, neither "comand" w to close a window. The only one working is "command" Q to quit. I attached 3 screenshots. The first one shows the way it was. On top the menu with Firefox | File | Edit | View | History, etc... and all my Bookmarks visible. Now when I open Firefox I see the top menu if no other window is open. As soon as I open a window my screen looks like the 3rd image with no menu anymore, only Firefox. And no more bookmarks. I use MacOS Catalina (10.15.4). What can I do? Thanks for your help.

I had to do a Windows reset, which erases program data for Firefox along with the program. There was no way to export the pre-reset bookmarks into an HTML file that could be imported later. Firefox was freshly downloaded after the reset, likely the same version, but no bookmarks of course. I have the Profile folder from Firefox before the reset, and I can delete the new profile folder and paste in the old one, which of course has all my bookmarks. However, this has not worked so far. Should this method work? If so, are there any tips? If this paste-in method will not work, are there workarounds to solve the problem?

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.

Hi Everyone!

I use Windows 10 and latest FF 75 64bit. I run 3 A/V software, a robust hosts file from mvps dot org, armed with a lot of browser security plugins/addons, strict high settings for both router and windows firewall, etc.

I have a unique problem. I have a lot of bookmarks, about 12000! Some of them are obsolete and a lot of them duplicates. I finally decided to clean them up yesterday, so I downloaded the following Bookmark Addons plus a few Windows EXE tools(Each of them accomplishes something that the others don't!):

Bookmark Dupes by Martin Väth, Bookmarks clean up by itwillnotbeasy, Bookmarks Organizer by Sören Hentzschel

Anyway, I rand the dedupe feature and then I ran the validators and now my bookmarks are reduced to 2000. I went through all the 2000 BM's manually to make sure the add-ons did their job. I caught a lot of obsolete BM's out of the 2000 that were specifically owned by hugedomains dot com and they were all redirected to shady malicious sites(I checked them all in virustotal dot com) and saved as a permanent BM in my FF! How can any tool rewrite/redirect my FF BM's? What tool did this, the 3 plugins/addons I used above or hugedomains? If latter, do I need to report hugedomains to authorities? A last question: When I ran the bookmark checkers to validate the 2000 sites, does that pee-off the site admins as their sites are pinged? I noticed some sites like Facebook, Linkedin, Monster, etc don't allow remote checking and bookmark checkers report such URLs as http 500. Thanks

Hello. In my bookmarks library I have a lot of folders organized in a tree with multiple branches themselves organized in hierarchic levels. Sometimes I don't find the bookmark I want to use by browsing my tree, probably because I didn't put it in the right location in the tree. I can find it by the "Search bookmarks" function but this function doesn't provide the bookmark location in the tree (and I don't see any other way to locate it). Thus I can't correct the bookmark location error in the tree.

Is there a way to locate a bookmark in library folders tree ?

Using FF52 because I don't want to lose SPECIFIC functionality I still have with that version. That functionality trumps all other considerations. Period.

In 52, I can open my bookmarks in a separate window ... that way it doesn't conflict with browser real estate AT ALL. Its behind browser window or on top as needed with a 'focus' click.

BUT ..... even if that is possible with Quantum ...

In that window, I want ALL bookmarks ... not just their folders ... to be visible, if needed. More specifically ....

...  I want to be able to open ANY two or more folders at one time (and keep them open) ... which is how I normally have this.        All in One Sidebar enabled this in FF52.       I do not want last folder closed when I open new one.     And I don't want to view bookmarks in a right hand side half of window.     (This is how FF was before 4.0, how it was enabled with AIOS by FF 29, etc.)

Please tell me if this combination of functionality is possible in current versions. Thank You.

Several versions ago the bookmarking was a 1 step process (bookmark and dropdown in 1 place).

It has gone back to that once in recent updates.

However, it has been broken again, requiring "Bookmark" then "Edit Bookmark". Is this going to be fixed?
