I was editing the bookmarks on PC in hope that the change will reflect on my iPhone with the sync on, but contrary to what I hoped, the sync worked the other way around, any change I made on PC will be reverted in a few minutes, which seems that it has been synced by the bookmarks on my iPhone. How do I get it right? I would like to have the ability to make changes on either device and reflect on the other device.

Is there a way to use "search engine shortcut" without query just to go to a website of the appropriate search-engine?

So as, for example, after writing "g" (or "g"+space) in the search bar and pressing Enter, firefox opened the url "https://www.google.com/search?q=" (or something like that).

It used to work this way in older versions of Firefox (before 83), but since then firefox just searches "g" with the default search engine. Or it "eats" the shortcut (after pressing space) and turns it into a "blue/gray search engine label" but it does not allow me to go to the search engine web without writing some query that I need to remove afterwards.

I was using this feature as a sort of bookmark shortcuts to "custom" search engine websites (I'm using tens of them for debugging purposes and often need to fill in some additional parameters to the "text" query - often even to an "empty query").

The closest I got googling was probably "browser.urlbar.update2.emptySearchBehavior" - but it either does not work already, does not do what I'm expecting or I did not come up with the correct value for it.

Hello! I have lost both my Firefox custom opening page, and all my accumulated Bookmarks, after an apparent Firefox Upgrade. I have ttried everything to recover my old Bookmarks, but cannot find them using the Bookmarks Menu. I have tried to locate these files using my Windows File Manager, but thery are nowhere to be found within my Firefox Folder in my main Hard Drive (C:\).

If these files are hidden, I/m not aware of that and I have selected to show all hidden folders or files. These old Bookmarks must be SOMEWHERE within my Firefox Folder, but WHAT must I look for? My problem does NOT seem to be covered within the Help files.

Thank YOu,

Alexander

After upgrading to 93.0, this one bookmark isn't working. When I talked to the technical support for the bank, the person indicated that it was a problem with FF, not with the bank. I am able to get into the account if I use Safari (ugh!). Once I click on the login bar, there isn't any corresponding bouncing dot on the tab, which indicates that there isn't anything going on on the website. The website just sits there. As far as I know, I've not having this problem with any of the other bookmarks that I use on a regular basis.

Any suggestions?

can't figure out how to get actual bookmarks from an old /home folder that I've archived from a previous version of Ubuntu.

I created a tar.gz back-up of my /home folder prior to doing a fresh install of UbuntuStudio 18.04. (The previous version was Ubuntu Studio 16.04, and it wouldn't let me upgrade, so I had to do a whole new installation.) I never "exported bookmarks" because I never realized I could do that! However, I was sure there must have been bookmarks already kept somewhere in my /home folder. However, now I can't figure out how to get at them. Although I can extract all kinds of files dealing with Firefox, I can not figure out how to access or generate Firefox bookmarks from all those files that exists. I'll try to attach a photo of my terminal output for what I can extract from the old /home that had "firefoxbookmarks" in it's name. Can anyone please help me.

But in case it doesn't upload here is my terminal output: usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/ usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/__init__.py usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/unity_firefoxbookmarks_daemon.py usr/share/dbus-1/services/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.service usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/ usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/copyright usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/changelog.Debian.gz usr/share/unity/scopes/web/firefoxbookmarks.scope usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/unity_scope_firefoxbookmarks-0.1.egg-info var/lib/dpkg/info/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.md5sums var/lib/dpkg/info/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.list usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/ usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/__init__.py usr/share/unity-scopes/firefoxbookmarks/unity_firefoxbookmarks_daemon.py usr/share/dbus-1/services/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.service usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/ usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/copyright usr/share/doc/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks/changelog.Debian.gz usr/share/unity/scopes/web/firefoxbookmarks.scope usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/unity_scope_firefoxbookmarks-0.1.egg-info var/lib/dpkg/info/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.md5sums var/lib/dpkg/info/unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks.list

Please, please fix the double spacing in the bookmark menu. Please go back to single spacing. Not sure why this change was made a few versions ago but I is NOT an improvement. If it was done in error fix it. If someone thought is was a good idea please ignore them. All this did was make it WAY harder to use the menu. I have found no way to change this back on my own. No settings, no downloads, nothing. If there is a way could someone direct me how to make a permanent fix.

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?
