There has been a legitimate issue with the bookmarks since the 92.0 update. This applies only to Windows 7 users. The list is very lazy and will actually freeze up. It takes forever to highlight the bookmark you want and the favicons are delayed in populating. Refreshing Firefox doesn't work. Renaming favicons.sqlite and places.sqlite, and those with the -shm and -wal extensions, if existing, doesn't work either. I don't need help from contributors. The following message is to the developers &/or whoever bastardized Firefox since the 92.0 update...


As I stated, this is a Windows 7 issue. The developers should fix this problem for us Windows 7 users. It was them who caused this issue since the 92.0 update. Everything worked perfect until then. Here’s a bright idea for the developers. How about getting this matter fixed, so that us Windows 7 users can have the same functionality as everyone else. Stop screwing around with a million and one updates every year. You people are doing more harm than good. The people running Chrome are a hell of a lot more intelligent. No issues whatsoever with Windows 7! Try that on for size.

Since the last two updates of 92.0 and 92.01, there is a major lag issue with my bookmark list. When you hover the cursor over a particular folder or link, it takes forever for it to be highlighted. In addition, the favicon associated with any particular link takes forever to populate. The bookmarks worked perfect prior to version 92.0. Being that I am a WIN 7 user, it would appear that whatever the developers did beginning with 92.0, had great affect to WIN 7 users, which implies that maybe other WIN 7 users may also be having the identical issues with their bookmarks. The developers should fix this issue ASAP in the next update. There is no excuse for this issue to be occurring.

I can't for the life of me explain why enlarging these fonts is not easily done. The font is tiny! Not everyone is 28, know what I mean? I've reviewed what's been written on this before in support, but I see nothing very useful. Surely, I can't be the only person who needs to enlarge these fonts. Please help!

Hi I have a new MacBook Air M1 chip computer. I exported all of my bookmarks on my old Macbook Pro to an HTML file and then transferred the HTML into my new computer. I researched and followed the instructions for importing the HTML. That went fine - to a point. Now all of my old bookmarks appear as one big group in the OTHER BOOKMARKS category. When I open BOOKMARKS>MANAGE BOOKMARKS they don't even appear. When I open BOOKMARKS and scroll down to OTHER BOOKMARKS they are all there. Here's the problem - in my old computer they were organized into folders but now they are not. Since they don't even appear in the manager I can't even begin to follow the instructions for organizing them. Also, I now have duplicate folders for all of the following : Other Bookmarks / Mozilla Firefox / Recent Tags / Bookmarks Toolbar. AND, Again, these duplicates do not appear when I open the Manager so I can't begin to delete any of them. Please help Daniel

Hello, I re-installed firefox and copied the backups from the old profile to the new profile. However, it is not complete - how do I find the bookmarks that were in the "other bookmarks folder" which is now empty and how do I find the bookmarks that were in my toolbar itself? Thank you.

Bookmarks did not transfer with new version. Tried to load old version of bookmarks that did not work. I have not changed my security software. Uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled, still no bookmarks. Tried refresh, still no bookmarks. Make response clear I am not a technical person. This is frustrating.

Good day, I know that this question has been going around lately but I hope that it finds traction soon. I am not going to be able to use Firefox soon going forward due to the bookmark spacing. I know that it sounds a perhaps a bit picayune but it is ruining my experience and more than that, although it seems counter intuitive, I cannot take in the column or divide out items without them all spaced closely together. I will need to find another browser if I cannot have the old spacing back.... and I really prefer Firefox. Anyhow... Thanks for your time and for your service! Kind regards, Mark

a Refresh because Firefox was running slow, sometimes I'm not able to click my mouse to use as ENTER. Clicking my mouse for ENTER seems as if its not one of it's functions so I have to literally press the ENTER button on my keyboard. That's only one of my problems that I am having with Firefox. So I decided to REFRESH Firefox. Now my bookmarks are missing so I followed the steps and went to>> HELP> More Troubleshooting Info>>PROFILE folder>> Open profile >>bookmarkbackups but there's nothing in that folder, it's empty. So where are my Bookmarks? This is a headache that happens every time I have to REFRESH. I just want my Bookmarks back quickly & simple. I've looked in the OLD FIREFOX folder on my desktop & there's no Bookmarks in there either. I apologize for this article because I know it sounds like every other article about Bookmarks in here but I've become impatient and just want my Bookmarks back in place. It's like a wild goose chase with this issue.

My question has 2 parts the first part is that I am trying to create a folder under the 'All Bookmarks' folder in the manage bookmarks screen that goes to the Library window. Can that be done? Because all it allows me to do is create a new folder under Bookmarks Toolbar and Bookmarks Menu. I want another folder in essence that is like the 'Other Bookmarks' folder that is not a sub folder of any other folder except for 'All Bookmarks'.

My second part question is that I cannot delete or remove 'Other Bookmarks' from the Library/Manage bookmarks screen. I am Firefox 92.0.1 (64-bit). I just installed it today. None of the options I tried as far as right click on the toolbar/bookmarks toolbar/or the Other Bookmarks folder gives me an option to remove it. Is the only option to remove it to go into about:config?

I have attached a screenshot of my bookmarks showing what I am wanting to have done if possible. As you see from the screenshot I want to move everything in Crap Junk into its on main folder under All Bookmarks like like Bookmarks Menu and Other Bookmarks is currently preferably without using Bookmarks Menu.

Thanks.

I just made the mandatory mistake of updating firefox to 92. Now I have no bookmarks whatsoever, and all of my settings are default crap. I can deal with the settings, but I require my bookmarks.

Mozilla was nice enough to overwrite the prior firefox.exe so I can ONLY access 92 (without bookmarks).

This will probably make me never use firefails again. FFS, mozilla, WTF?
