Hello! After various problems with my MacBook I had to delete everything from my hard drive. After installing BigSur 11.2.3 and restoring things from my TimeMachine backup all my Firefox bookmarks got lost. I understood how I can restore them but I don't know what file to look for in the TimeMachine backup that should contain my bookmarks... I would also like to restore my passwords if possible. Anyone can help?

Version 84.0.2. Windows 10. I inadvertently opened a second FF window which had no tabs and no bookmarks toolbar. I closed FF which had many open tabs and many bookmarks toolbar items. Now all tabs are lost and all toolbar entries are lost. On reopening FF, only the FF with no tabs and no bookmarks toolbar will open. I have searched and read many "solutions", but nothing that I can get to work. Does anybody actually know what can be done or that nothing can be done. I had not yet reinstalled my general backup program prior to this so there is no other backup and all I have to rely on is FF alone. Are at least the bookmarks toolbar items stored somewhere even if the tabs are not recoverable?

All bookmarks are there except for bookmarks toolbar items.

I would like to restore both tabs and the bookmarks toolbar if possible. If anything can be done, can anyone articulate some clear instructions?

I want to set up a bunch of bookmarks in FF [84.0.1] and I cannot find out what the acceptable bookmark format is. [the bookmarks will come from someone else so I'd like to write a program to generate the appropriate import file]. I've tried edit an exported HTML file and then importing that [modified] file and it doesn't seem to work at all, so I'm clearly not understanding what has to be in the file so it'll work.

My plan/hope was to be able create a file with

<DL><P>
   <DT> FOLDERNAME 
   <DL> <P>
        <DT> <A HREF=URL> name for the bookmark</a>
       <DT> <A HREF=URL> name for trhe bookmakr</a>
               ...
    </DL>
</DL>

Is that even vaguely close to something that'll work?

I used to be able until very recently go to MENU > LIBRARY>Bookmarks: which would 'split' giving me three (?) choices, one of which was showing a bookmark side bar. I seem to not have that choice any longer ... or do I and I just don't know how to select it? Thank you.

I just refreshed firefox because it was constantly hanging. However, my library icon is now missing. I have the bookmark star in the address bar but I no longer have the Library icon in the ribbon. When I click on the menu bar Bookmarks is shown but Library is not. When I click on Bookmarks I see a list of saved sites, but that's not a convenient way to get to them. Does anyone know how to get the Library icon back?

Thank you

I don't like this new look at all. Two issues:

1) Before today, when I opened my bookmarks, I saw all of them. But now, since they're more spaced apart, I have to scroll to the bottom to get to those at the bottom.

2) If I scroll to the bottom of the bookmarks, and then close out the bookmarks, the next time I open the bookmarks, and I want to go into "Other Bookmarks" (at the top), I have to scroll up there to get to it!

Before, if I wanted "Other Bookmarks," all I did was hit the tab, and went right down to it.

Why do they do this? Don't they check this out before giving it to everyone? Without any kind of setting to go back to what it was, if you want to?

3) If I highlight text and right click to copy or cut, the window that comes up is so big! And I have to go up three or four inches to copy or cut. Before, copy and cut was barely an inch away.

Same thing with spelling mistakes. The correct spelling is a lot further away now.

Why do they do this? Don't they check this out before giving it to everyone? Without any kind of setting so you can go back to what it was, if you want to?

I just noticed that it depends where the cursor is when you highlight. So the cut/copy commands could be closer. But still, if it aint broke, don't fix it!

My bookmarks toolbar no longer has any bookmarks. And per online support, the "Add Bookmarks Menu to Toolbar" is not an option availalble to restore them. What I DO have when clicking on the bookmarking icon is 1. Bookmark this page. 2. Bookmarking tools > Remove bookmarks menu from toolbar > View bookmarks sidebar > Hide bookmarks toolbar 3. Search bookmarks But there is no "Add Bookmarks Menu to Toolbar"

How do I restore my bookmarks? AND are all my associated Foxfire generated passwords at risk as a result of their disappearance?

Also, GHOSTERY suddenly appeared on Firefox. I did not install it.

After using CCleaner, on opening FireFox I discovered an unwanted, 'other bookmarks' tab sitting on my toolbar. It won't move (click & drag), and I want rid of it. I like having the double right arrow at the edge of the toolbar like it use to be. When I did a full browser 'refresh', it disappeared!

However, on using CCleaner again, the darn thing reappeared.

How to I tell FireFox that I would like to be in charge of how it displayed, rather than some errant code that someone else thinks i want?

I was switching my browser from Brave, a chrome based browser, back to Firefox because Brave doesn't can't run some of the stuff my uni learning management system (LMS). I tried importing my browser bookmarks and passwords to Firefox but the importing feature on Firefox doesn't show Brave as one of the browsers it can take the data from. I want to know if there's anyway I can fix this or if there's no hope for importing data from chromium browsers to Firefox.

Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?
