Hi! Hope you are well and can help me?!!!

I guess my first problem was buying a refurbished laptop from Best Buy. Anyway, after having to return it the day I received it, because it wouldn't even boot up, it was repaired and returned back to me. I then got it all setup like I wanted, but if it ever hung up, or I needed to reboot because of a software update, or for any reason, it sometimes took several tries because of the hard drive not being found to boot from. Well, after about a year of it doing this(still under warranty), it finally would not boot up at all and I was forced to return it to be repaired. They had to replace the hard drive and did send me the bad one back, so I thought I wouldn't have "anything" since they had to install a new hard drive. Well, I first look to see if any of my old data was there and I was flabbergasted that it was - from what I could tell, everything!!! I don't know if this was from the One drive or like on another browser(Google Chrome) I use, all my bookmarks were there, along with passwords, everything!!! Well, I also use Firefox Mozilla, so after installing it, I was not so happy when it appears that my bookmarks were not retained. Before, I didn't have an account on your browser and I am assuming that is why nothing was retained. I only signed up for an account on your browser today, obviously to send you this help question - hope of finding my old bookmarks and the passwords I had on them. Needless to say, I can recreate them and get new passwords established again, but I sure hope they are still on my laptop "somewhere" that you can help me find them and restore them to your browser. I searched the hard drive for bookmarks and did find a Firefox Mozilla file that looks like a backup file, but even if it is, I don't know how to restore it - but maybe it is just a file I created today only - I just don't know. With this long winded question here, can you Please help me??? Much Thanks in advance!!! Walt Wise

I have already removed the entire profile, did a reinstall .. nothing seems to reset it. When I perform a backup, the entries are also in the backup json.

I hope somebody can help, this started happening recently it seems.

Thanks in advance!

It is sad, I think, that Mozilla/Firefox is willing to close/archive a thread that is not really solved or has reared its ugly head again in versions since the release of 93 (we are now at 97.0.2). I came to this site and registered because I am still having this issue as of 3/6/2022...arg!

I have tried the 3 recommended solutions, with no affect:

I have, as one article suggested, cleared my cache and cookies, started and restarted Firefox; the only thing I have not tried is removing it from my computer and using Chrome (I'm told it is a better browser anyway) as some responders have eluded to.

I hope that responders like "jscher2000, Kymber" will continue the champion this issue until Mozilla gets it "Really" fixed.

Thanks for listening, Wayne

BTW, heres what my dropdowns look like today 3/6/2022 6:17 PM Arizona time.

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, I am sorry to have to go to such lengths to figure out how I can fix this error. Today I opened up Firefox to watch some simple youtube videos, then I come to realization that all my bookmarks I have are gone. I quickly check up on them to find out that they are still there, which was a relief for me. I searched through multiple different problems and solutions, but none of them worked for me I can try to send you an image of what has now become of my bookmark toolbar. I tried restoring the defaults, as well as restarting my PC, or checking if I have the toolbar visible. I sincerely hope you can help me fix my problem.

Yours sincerely, Oliver Wiechert

BOOKMARKS: LOCATING SUB-FOLDER

QUESTION POSTED NOV 2020 by: BevHoward NEVER ANSWERED - PLEASE ADVISE - NEED ANSWER

"I have hundreds of FireFox bookmarks organized in bookmarks folders and subfolders which makes sense most of the time.

However, with seldom used bookmarks, often I cannot remember where the bookmark itself is located, and, I need like to find the bookmark and note the folder where it resides then perhaps move the bookmark to a folder that makes more sense the next time it's needed.

While I can "search" bookmarks and use the bookmark, there is no apparent way to determine where the bookmark itself is located, so, I am forced to use "search" every time I need to use it. "Abandoning" a lost bookmark location and creating a duplicate does not seem right.

There MUST be a way to find where a bookmark is located. What am I missing?"

When Firefox is restarted after updates, or when starting from powered down, or when hitting the home button on the tool bar, I still get multiple tabs opened - none of which are relevant or links which I desire. Seems I've tried everything I can to get this to stop. How do i adjust things so that I just open Firefox without a whole bunch of ancient links that I have to manually close every time? Thank You.

I messed up firefox and uninstalled it. Then I forgot the password and changed it. My other computers still have my settings, but with a different password. Should I change the password back to get all my settings back?

I found the correct password on another computer. The other computer still has all the correct bookmarks and add-ons. I really, really, really can't lose all those settings. I will also need to be adding a table to the same account.

I'm running Mojave on an Imac. I have just installed Firefox 2, updating from an older Firefox. All bookmarks are saved in a bookmarks backup .jsonlz4 file in the original Firefox Profiles folder on the Mac. I have done Import & Backup / Restore / Choose file to no avail. Nothing happened, and there are no bookmarks under the bookmark dropdown on the new Firefox browser.

The path to the Profiles backup folder runs through several levels of hidden folders. Using Terminal, I've managed to unhide all but one stubborn Library folder that is preventing me from navigating to the Profiles backup file to select it for restoration. I managed to unhide the backup file itself and save a copy to the desktop. I'm guessing that the desktop copy is not going to help me, because I'll need the path to point back to the Profiles folder.

I'm stumped. How can I transfer these bookmarks to Firefox 2? It shouldn't be this hard.

Hi, The attached image explains the problem in 3 steps. 1. I try to add a bookmark, a pop-up window appears. OK. 2. I get a menu with some recent bookmark folders, but I want a different one, so I press "Choose folder". OK. 3. Now I need to browse among numerous folders in my bookmarks, it worked fine before, but I cannot do it anymore because the folder names are not visible! As if they are written with a white font on a white background. I can scroll, choose (blindly) some folder, which is marked by the faint rectangle visible on the image. And the bookmark will be saved to that folder indeed. But scrolling blindly through my hundred folders is obviously not practical.

The problem appeared 1-2 weeks ago, probably after a FF update. Now I updated FF to the latest version 97.0.1, it doesn't help.

A couple of months ago I did some changes in FF config in particular to make bookmarks appear more dense: newer FF versions introduced huge vertical space between bookmarks. I can't remember what exactly I did (followed some recipe on internet), but it didn't introduce any problems. The problems appeared 1-2 weeks ago. System: Windows 10.

Hi again J

   Older thread  https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1284813    now closed of course.
   
   You suggested    "If you paste the following address to the address bar of a new window and press Enter to load it, you have largely the same functionality:"

chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml

   Good idea.   Yes, "largely."   Then I bookmarked "that page"   And then pinned/locked that 'bookmark' as a tab in my Default Session.         Then ...

"You can hold the Shift key and left-click the bookmark to open the bookmark (link) in a new window. This should always work to open a link in a new window." Mozilla Support. Which it does.

   Bingo.     Standard browser window.   Separate Window with All folders and All bookmarks in a ONE PANE in its own window, so any and all bookmarks are visible concurrently.    The Browser and Bookmarks show on Taskbar as two icons for toggling ("never combine")  and the critical functionality from ancient FF 3.26 (not the portable) and later via AiOS or "Good 'Ol Sidebar" is back in business.      Took me awhile for the opportunity to investigate this, but I appreciate your experience and patience.    Cheers!
