I got a new computer and am moving my profile to new computer(W10 to W10). The old profile is 464MB, mostly in Storage/Default 234MB I think this is a lot and want to slim it down. I want to keep bookmarks and have it auto recall previous sites I have visited. Can I keep the bookmarks and auto recall, but delete some of the files? These files are big also, places.sqlite, webappstore.sqlite, favicons.sqlite Thank you very much.

Hi community,

Somehow the Other Bookmarks folder showed up at the end of my bookmarks bar. I am pretty sure it was not there yesterday. I assume that somehow I accidentally placed it there.

The problem is that I can't either move it, or remove it from there. When you select it, delete option is grey and not available. Does anyone now exactly how to remove it from the bookmarks bar?

Thank you people... :)

Hello, I see that when adding a new bookmark, Firefox now remembers the last used location and sets it by default. I would prefer to keep the previous behaviour of defaulting to "Other bookmarks". Is there a way to disable it please?

I prefer to save my bookmarks to my Bookmarks Toolbar but FF defaults to Other Bookmarks. It's annoying at best and a waste of time to have to select the location I want every time. This should be an option. I don't want Other Bookmarks in my toolbar, either, thanks very much.

A link for "Other Bookmarks" has appeared in the Toolbar after the dropdown icon for the 'extra' items that won't fit across the screen. Also, a space has appeared between the rightmost bookmark and the dropdown. I had adjusted display resolution for easier viewing, but putting it back to Default makes no diff - except for size, obviously. Haven't found anything in Prefs to add/remove this. Screenshot attached. Many thanks for any help. PeterT

Previous Session not restored and then all bookmarks/history erased

I closed a session with about 70 tabs, and upon reopening, firefox opened two windows, and the "restore previous session" was grayed out. I looked at "recently closed tabs" and there was only about 5 recent google searches in there, and none of my older tabs.

I closed the windows and tried again, this time "restore" was available but it opened only one tab to a website I hadn't had open in a session for weeks.

So I tried the fix listed here: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1245632

Renamed the folder. And now on opening, all of my history, my bookmarks, my bookmark toolbar, is completely gone, and the only toolbar bookmark I have is "Getting Started" like a brand new version of firefox.

Please help, I have so many important websites in my bookmarks and I'm ruined if I can't restore them.

Is there a way to sort the bookmarks in the dropdown menu?

I can sort the bookmarks (e.g. by name or date last used) in the "Show All Bookmarks" menu, but this doesn't affect the dropdown menu, which I usually use. Also, if I close the "Show All Bookmarks" menu and reopen it, they are again unsorted.

I just want to quickly navigate to websites I visit often. Having them on top of the Bookmarks dropdown menu would be very useful. Do I need a third party add-on for this?

Please note that this is the sidebar I am talking about, not the toolbar which uses browsers.toolbar.bookmarks.2h2020. I am asking for the flag if it even exists to have the ability to have the bookmarks sidebar show only when on the homepage and new tab page, akin to how the bookmarks toolbar only shows up when on those specific pages.
