In the latest release the gap between Bookmarks on the Bookmark toolbar folders is huge. Why was this changed and how to change it back? Note this isn't happening from the menu, only from the Bookmarks toolbar folders. It is extremely ugly and huge waste of space which forces me to scroll to see all my bookmarks under some folders.

Since the new fancy mozilla update, bookmarks in folders take up 2 if not 3 times as much space, making navigation in folders unnecessarily time consuming, since now you have to scroll to access bookmarks, whereas before you would have them all in one click of the folder. Any way to fix this?

With release of 91.0 my bookmarked favorites are double-spaced. I tried the "userChrome.css fix and apparently this no longer works.

Is this double-spacing now permanent or is there a fix for it?

Thanks Dave

Two days ago (9/10/2021) I updated to version 92.0 on my laptop. When I attempt to scroll/drag through the bookmarks menu, the cursor, at normal speed, stays far ahead of the active bookmark. This "lag" is also noticeable when dragging the cursor through an active page/window. This was not the case before the update.

Google maps bookmarks shows icon different from site icon.

Firefox saved Google Maps Bookmark shows icon as https://www.google.com/favicon.ico instead of https://www.google.com/images/branding/product/ico/maps15_bnuw3a_32dp.ico This problem is there for many months but seems there is no fix. Google Chrome and MS Edge do not have this wrong bookmarks icon problem.

Is there a maximum number of bookmarks that can be synchronised? In the past (I don't know exactly when) there was a limit of about 5000 bookmarks. I have the impression that this limit has now been dropped and all bookmarks are synchronised. Is that right?

Lost Bookmarks after upgrading to FireFox 92.0 on Mac Computer OS X 11.6

I updated my Mac OS X to 11.6 (Big Sur) AND then updated FireFox to Version 92.0 and now I have lost my bookmarks.

I looked up the subject of losing Bookmarks on Firefox and attempted recovery. It was partially successful, as described below.

First, a little more on update history. I have multiple accounts on my computer. My main account we will call Account-A and another account is Account-B. Account-B was setup years ago as a backdoor into my computer in case Account-A became corrupted. A couple of other accounts were for my kids and have not been accessed in years.

Fast Forward - After Installation of both upgrades (OS X 11.6 and FireFox 92.0) from Account-A, I then went to Account-B and found missing bookmarks. I followed instructions provided on FireFox’s website under “about:profile” and recovered my bookmarks under Account-B

I returned to Account-A and discovered the same problem. I went to “about:bookmarks” and attempted to recover my bookmarks. The profile said it was fixed and was not able to be changed and could not be accessed. Note the file paths were different.

After nearly giving up in trying to find the file as displayed on the file path on FireFox about:profile page, I found what I believe are the fifteen (15) previous files that FireFox stores. I am unable to select any previous bookmark file from the list within the ‘about:profile” page.

In an attempt to buy time before the file is over-written and preserve what I believe are my bookmarks, I COPIED, the one file from yesterday (Sept 18, 2021) to my Desktop.

I need further help or guidance on recovering my bookmarks under Account-A.

Thank you in advance for any and all help!

First off, I'm kind of a nincompute. So, simply, my bookmarks always separate somewhere in the middle of the list. Each section is alphabetically arranged.

  But why does this happen? I choose to sort by alphabet, so I should have one list with all the A's in one place, etc., instead of two lists.
  I never chose to divide the list, and i can't figure out how the bookmark genie picks what goes where.

I am not able to add or remove bookmarks. The bookmarks library is empty. I can't restore to any back up bookmarks. I restarted in safe mode. No bookmarks. I reset Firefox. No bookmarks. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. No bookmarks. I did a Revo Uninstall and cleared the registry. No bookmarks. I deleted the localstore.rdf. No bookmarks. This is kinda a deal breaker for me. I might have to go to Chrome or IE.

I had about 100 folders w/bookmarks last week and by mistake I imported about 500 other folders dated over several months ago. I discovered I don't need those 500 folders. How do I get ride of all of them without doing it individually? I want to avoid trying to delete them individually folder by folder because it would just be too time consuming. Is there a way to highlight them all (500) and the delete all at once? thank you I await your answer.

Perhaps I can put first 100 folders altogether in another single folder, say X. And then export X as a back up. Then somehow remove all 600 folders plus X all at once some how completely emptying the bookmark listings and import back the backed up folder X. Can that be done?
