As I scroll down through the bookmarks in the sidebar I eventually come to a point where the bookmarks repeat. Can someone tell me what might have caused this? Is there any way to clean this up (like deleting one of the sets)?

Win 7 Pro, 64-bit, FF 81.0.2, 32-bit.

It appears that FF will not permit me to enter a duplicate bookmark. However, there are times when I would like the same bookmark to appear in more that one location. Is there a way to do this?

Hi - Some of my bookmarks are missing their favicons (like Southwest Airlines, WalMart). I just get the generic globe favicon for them. I've tried deleting the bookmark, reloading, renaming, clearing the cache, etc., but nothing works. How do I get these favicons to appear?

I have lost all of my bookmarks and the bookmark categories I made for my toolbar. When I go to "backup" they aren't there either. This happened after my laptop froze, I restarted it, and was asked to sign in to my Firefox account upon opening up the browser.

Searching for bookmarks in the address bar don't show up expected results

Hello,

Whenever I search for a particular bookmark in the address bar, the first result is the general URL address of the bookmark (which I don't want) and the second is the bookmark (which I want) : https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-10-18-05-34-48-9d41d0.png

Searching * steamdb doesn't really help, because the bookmark I want is still the second result after the search engine suggestion : https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-10-18-05-39-15-2031ad.png

This issue affects all my bookmarks, not only this one.

I know I just have to hit the down arrow key to access the bookmark, but it would be infinitely more convenient if I could disable the first result (the general URL address of the bookmark).

Whenever I try to add a bookmark in FF (81.0.2, 32-bit), the default folder for the bookmark is "Other Bookmarks", with the option to save the bookmark to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder (which is my preference).

How can I get FF to default to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder when saving a bookmark?

I just did an upgrade to 81.0.2. All of my bookmarks disappeared. Fortunately I was able to retrieve the last window but I am unable to create new bookmarks. Whether I right click on the tab to bookmark or Ctrl+D to bookmark, I get a window that says New Bookmark with options of Save or Cancel. However, the only option I can choose is Cancel. This is not good.

FF lose all open and pinned tabs if I close the basic FF window first (for example, the private window or other window remains active)

Can anything be done about it? Manually re-creating all (more than few) pinned and lost tabs takes a really long time :(

Hey!

I just formated mywindows 10 pc, installed firefox, and logged in, and usually all my bookmarks and saved logins return after i log my firefox account on, but they didnt this time, im afraid i somehow overwrote the saved data, and now im without logins and bookmarks, i have googled and have tried going to archive and restoring, and i can only see a backup from today there, im afraid thats the one i made myself - its also saying 11 items, the backup, and i had way more, anyway when i click it, nothing happens.

I tried going to the firefox profile section, there was 2 profiles, none had my back up

Thx in advance!

Good day!

Today I have opened Mozilla Firefox as usual and for some reason, everything was gone, by everything I mean EVERYTHING, no logins, no passwords saved, no bookmarks (I had probably around a thousand of them) no search history, nothing, I was trying to restore my previous session (with more than 100 tabs open... yeah I know) and nothing happened. For some reason the starting page was Yahoo instead of my normal Google search page... but I don't think it was that typical virus that replace everything with Yahoo and makes it impossible to change it back, because I was actually able to change the starting page back to google without any problems and my Malwarebytes didn't detect anything, so I am absolutely baffled as to what happened. I was trying the sync service but it doesn't work at all, nothing is restored. It's almost like someone broke into my account synced with everything and then erased it all from the server... is it even possible? Or could something overwrote or replace the Mozilla Firefox files on my computer? Where should I look for my original files, settings, saves, etc. on my computer, maybe something has been saved? Maybe I can find something? Please help, it is really painful to lose thousands of websites that I had saved and organized in many different bookmarks and folders.

Kind regards, Simon

The mobile bookmarks folder is nowhere to be found on the desktop app. When I bookmark a page on mobile, Firefox desktop doesn't show it in the "all bookmarks" menu, I tried searching but it doesn't find it. The mobile app doesn't show it either, it only shows the "desktop bookmarks" folder and the single pages that I have bookmarked on mobile. I have attached some screenshots that better explain this issue. I would be grateful if someone could help me.
