Hail all:

Then opening All bookmarks, the window reverts to "Other bookmarks".

Is there a way to bring that to "All Bookmarks"?

Being autistic, this has been quite a monsterly beam (once splinter) in my eye...

Thank you very much: Xog.

Hey! I was wondering how the bookmark sync works like when I set it up; I have everything synced across my devices apart from bookmarks, because I was a bit afraid of this step. I do have important bookmarks on my laptop, more dedicated to work, and other important bookmarks on my PC, more about private life. If I select sync now, will some of the bookmarks be deleted and overwritten? How can I choose which bookmarks will have the priority or what to pick? (I have multiple folders with many dozens of bookmarks in each, so it's a complex system and nothing I would easily recreate) I would greatly appreciate your help! <3 Thanks

After the 90.0.2 update, the bookmarks menu no longer scrolls with the center wheel of my mouse. The center wheel scrolls properly in my emails, on webpages, everywhere else but the in the bookmarks. I have to use the up or down arrows to scroll through them, and it's a royal pain because I have so many bookmarks.

I have an issue now that I did not have in the past. I backup my bookmarks to a JSON file. And save it to my OneDrive. I then go to another computer and open my OneDrive. The new file shows up. And I import my newly backed up bookmarks. I get the usual warning.... this will overwite etc...... I import.... I get a load of rubbish. This was how I always moved my most current bookmarks between computers. Something has changed in Firefox. Any explanation and help is appreciated. Thanks. [email]@yahoo.com

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.

Neither of the cited solutions in the support articles, regarding the recent sudden demolition of bookmarks, work, and the articles do not offer a how-to-escalate option.

When surfing from Menu > Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > Library arrows, it does "successfully" recognize a July 15 backup copy existing, but when clicking on it, it only brings up an error message saying "unable to process."

When going instead to Firefox Help > More Troubleshooting > Profile > Show in Finder, it again finds the same July 15 backup, but only produces an error message saying that no document can be opened. It offers generic referral to the entirety of the Apple Store and entirety of all existing applications on the hard drive, that already didn't step up to open it, but no clue as to what opening Firefox's own proprietary reference actually requires, or who to ask if the user fails.

This is a catastrophic result for bazillions of users, especially any involved in research or use of deep websites in which the shortcut-route or source-reminder bookmarks were harvested over time in a way that isn't easily reconstructed from "accounts" or emails or notes. Why in the world would anyone think it wise to make the default browser setting automatically "upgrading" by wiping out all accumulated user data without any warnings to the user to first do a manual backup of personal data, such as by exporting all existing FF bookmarks into another browser first and then manually making whatever additional transition or re-import FF wanted? Had I known I needed to have made a lot of notes in order to have backup at all, I would have... or would have picked a safer browser to rely on, if auto-update wipe-out risk is to be the "normal" given environment now. Bookmarks are not just frivolous things for a fair number of folks.

Heartsick. Hoping there's still a third route for restoring, beyond the total loss and brickwalls experienced so far.

I tried to import saved data and bookmarks as usual from Chrome and miserably failed both on macOS and Windows 10 (using the steps as shown in the attached screenshot). Reproduced on Firefox 90.0.2.

Any tips on how to fix that? Sure, I could export all the bookmarks in a HTML file and import it later, but it does not include saved logins nor history.

I'd like to have, in my one firefox account, a 'private' profile with my private life bookmarks and a 'work' profile with my work life bookmarks. However, this doesn't seem to work. I open firefox with work profile and see my work bookmarks, then I close and reopen with private profile and see my private bookmarks, then I close and reopen again with work profile and now I still see my private bookmarks instead of my work bookmarks. Firefox just unsolicitedly takes the private bookmarks over to the work profile. This can't be how it's supposed to be, right? Because what would be the point of having different profiles? I hope you can help me with this.

Diese sind dann auch für sehr kurze Zeit verschwunden, tauchen aber dann wieder wie aus dem nichts auf. > Wie kann ich Lesezeichen und Ordner dauerhaft löschen? Ein weiteres Problem ist die Sortierung der Lesezeichen und Ordner. Nach jedem Öffenen von Firefox ist alles unsortiert geordnet. > Wie kann ich das einstellen? Alle beiden Probleme tauchen erst seit kurzer Zeit auf. Vorher lief das reibungslos. Vielen Dank, Dirk Baltes
