Hi again J

   Older thread  https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1284813    now closed of course.
   
   You suggested    "If you paste the following address to the address bar of a new window and press Enter to load it, you have largely the same functionality:"

chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml

   Good idea.   Yes, "largely."   Then I bookmarked "that page"   And then pinned/locked that 'bookmark' as a tab in my Default Session.         Then ...

"You can hold the Shift key and left-click the bookmark to open the bookmark (link) in a new window. This should always work to open a link in a new window." Mozilla Support. Which it does.

   Bingo.     Standard browser window.   Separate Window with All folders and All bookmarks in a ONE PANE in its own window, so any and all bookmarks are visible concurrently.    The Browser and Bookmarks show on Taskbar as two icons for toggling ("never combine")  and the critical functionality from ancient FF 3.26 (not the portable) and later via AiOS or "Good 'Ol Sidebar" is back in business.      Took me awhile for the opportunity to investigate this, but I appreciate your experience and patience.    Cheers!

Firefox Desktop version 97.0, 64 bit, latest update. How can I find where in the bookmark folder tree, a bookmark is, if I have "lost" it, and it is in a bookmark SUB folder? If I use the search bookmarks tool when bookmarks are in the sidebar, it finds the bookmark very well, but doesn't tell me what folder it is in. If I use the edit bookmark tool by clicking the blue star by the address bar on the opened bookmark it will give me the name of the folder, but if that is a subfolder, there is no clue where in the bookmark folder tree it is to be found. I've never managed to find the answer to this one, for several years! Many thanks.

Firefox was updated recently and apparently it completely wiped out ALL OF MY BOOKMARKS. I need these bookmarks back ASAP for this is a business and this type of error is EXTREMELY unacceptable and costing us money. (This is a Business!!)

Your IMMEDIATE assistance is greatly appreciated.

BTW - i performed the "restore" steps you advised in your help community but all the backups are from 2019 and further back for some odd reason. And the attempts to restore any previous version comes back simply as "FAILED"

Bookmarks are saving but never show up in my bookmarks bar folders?

  • I have tried to uninstall and reinstall but still same problem. And yes I did a hard delete of all installation files in users - app data..
  • I have checked the read only is not selected in the "places.sqlite", and even deleted it to force a new one, still didn't help.
  • I have also deleted the "xulstore.json" file and that also did not help.
  • I have reset in safe mode to default setting but that also didn't help.

Does anyone please know how to fix this very annoying problem?

Please I really don't want to go back to Chrome but if that's the only reliable browser without so many downsides (apart from privacy) then I don't see any other option if I can't fix this asap.

thank you.

A very important parent Bookmark folder disappeared again!

When I do a Search, I can find Bookmarks that are in the Parent Bookmarks folder but as I have reported before, the HUGE issue is that there is NO way to find where the parent Bookmarks folder or the Bookmarks in the parent Bookmarks folder using the Search function! How can I find the parent Bookmarks folder and where the Bookmarks are that were in the Parent Bookmarks folder?

I have added many Bookmarks since yesterday so I do not want to try to do a Restore.

I need to find the Bookmarks that disappeared soon.

Please help me, all my bookmarks are gone and everything is set to default. I also checked my history and there is nothing. All have been wiped out. I restarted my firefox because it detects my letters as keyboard shortcuts , I tried to exit and open it first but it is still there. Then, I used troubleshoot mode to restart the firefox. It was fixed after that but after using firefox for a while I noticed all my bookmarks are gone, then, checked everything was gone. I tried restoring bookmarks by profiles but firefox didn't create a profile it was only a default profile in there. I haven't log in my account on this device because i forgot. Please help I really those bookmarks back. It is very important for my work and most of my research references are my bookmarks.

On my home tower PC, the Bookmarks appear on the left side of the screen (WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM. On my laptop PC, when FIREFOX updated to the latest version in the past several months, the Bookmarks no longer appear on the left side of the screen immediately when I open FIREFOX. In order to see the Bookmarks, I have to click on a small icon at the upper right hand corner of the screen. Then, the Bookmarks appear on the right side of the screen. I have been through all the items in the Settings screen, checked each subheading for any item pertaining to moving the Bookmarks to the LEFT side, but have found nothing. I first checked your knowledge base, and while it reported 2 responses, neither one of them correctly addressed this particular problem. Please help.

Like many my bookmarks disappeared. Following the many suggestions one seemed to have possibilities. That was to restore a backup file. However when the restore option was taken in the library only one showed up which was dated with today's date. I then looked for and eventually found the 15 backup files that were claimed to exist.

But how do I select one of these and use it for backup purposes if they don't show up in the restore list. By the way the only file shown in the offered list is not one of the 15 backups.

Many thanks - I haven't much hair left!

Hi,

My first post on this forum. 1-2 weeks ago all my bookmarks from the toolbar disappeared. I still got them if I go to the top right corner and choose "bookmarks" I think this happened after an update.

Is there any way to get the bookmarks back to the toolbar quick, like pressing a few buttons or do I have to do them all one by one again?

Before I could just add a bookmark to the toolbar by highlighting the url and drag it right under to the toolbar. Now that's not possible and I'm not able to add them. Any help much appreciated.

When I go to bookmark a web site, as I start to type the bookmark folder name it vanishes.

I have to go into the bookmarks folder, find the no name folder and type in the new folder name. 

As I start typing I have to enter the first letter twice as first strike does not work.

I have thousands of bookmarks which are set up in a Book, Chapter, Paragraph, Sentence format. So when a new folder goes missing it is easy to find the unnamed or a folder with no name. Thank you for the help.
