I have installed Firefox for windows 10 on a new laptop. I was able to sign in for synchronizing and got all my bookmarks synced on this machine. I'm able to view the bookmarks in sidebar, but the toolbar is empty. Even when i select "Always view Bookmarks toolbar", and I drag and drop "bookmarks toolbar items" to the appropriate toolbar. I've uninstalled firefox, deleted the appropriate mozilla folder in C:\ProgramData and C:\Program Files and ran cleandisk but for some reason i still am getting an empty toolbar.

I've tried several refresh installs and sometimes after I close firefox once, and reopen, the toolbar is filled with my bookmarks, but if I close it and open it again, the bookmarks are gone and don't reappear. Can anyone help?

Hello,

I'm trying to sort bookmark folders by date. I followed some threads on-line, but its not saving. Am I missing something?

I'm going to Manage Bookmarks (see screenshot) i'm able to select a folder and click Views and it defaulted to 'unsorted' I select Sort by Added and the latest bookmarks in this area sort by latest on the TOP first. Perfect!

I exit out check bookmarks and they are still sorted in the reverse... meaning latest bookmark is still at the bottom and my very first bookmark in this folder is at the top.

Maybe its not designed this way? if so I don't see the reason to go under Managed Bookmarks and sort by anything if its not going to save that way.

Moral of the story trying to sort by date added in any folder not name (which is only thing I see when right clicking on any folder). I want latest saved bookmarks sorted from TOP down not latest's starting at the bottom.

Thanks

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 saw this topic in a couple of places on the forum, but the posts are from 2014/15, and some things have changed since then. Some updated instructions would be appreciated! I'm particularly concerned about my bookmarks.

Also, does it matter whether I had the same version of Firefox before and after the refresh? I'm not 100% sure that I did. Thanks.

I recently updated my bookmarks b/c after the latest update, most of mine disappeared. I set everything back up and it worked for a day. Then, I left my browser up for two days without closing out and when I came back to my PC, the links don't work. The favicons are now not showing either anymore. I've looked online but didn't see any instructions I felt confident to follow in order to fix. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Alex

How to fix duplicate bookmarks issue once and for all??

I'm using the latest version of Firefox (89.0) on both of my Windows 7 computers as well as on my iPhone. I have this really annoying glitch where I'll bookmark a page, and Firefox will occasionally duplicate that bookmark hundreds of times. I've gone in and deleted the duplicates, but then the problem re-occurs, so I'm trying to figure out how to finally fix this! I've already spent several hours looking through your help forums and trying to fix it, but nothing seems to work. Here's what I've done:

I turned off sync on all my devices. I also noticed that I had the iCloud synch extension on one of my computers, so I removed that, since I read that might cause some issues. Then I went and cleaned up the bookmarks on one of my computers, deleting all the duplicate entries, and I exported an HTML version of my bookmarks to my computer and also created a backup .json file. I refreshed Firefox on that computer. And I changed my sync password, since I read somewhere that that would supposedly force my old data to be deleted from Firefox's server.

Then I turned sync back on on that one computer, hoping that the latest version of my bookmarks that were on that computer would now update to Firefox's server. But instead of replacing the old bookmarks file in the cloud, it simply added back the old duplicate bookmarks to my computer (which apparently never got deleted from Firefox servers, despite the password change). Super frustrating. Isn't there a way to force a one-way sync, so the version of the bookmarks file that I have locally -- which has the latest changes -- takes priority??

I then tried going to "Import bookmarks from HTML," hoping that the version I had previously saved would replace this bad, outdated version I had downloaded from the server, but that didn't seem to do anything (I guess import only adds new bookmarks but doesn't delete existing bookmarks?). Could I import the json file instead? If so, how do I do that? I've considered deleting all my bookmarks and then importing the html file again to see if that fixes it, but it looks like the html file doesn't include the bookmarks on my toolbar. Is that correct? If so, I don't want to lose them.

Not sure what this is so glitchy and so difficult to fix. Can someone please help?

There should be an option to permanently delete specific dates (all bookmarks associated with a specific date) from the list of dates under the "restore bookmarks" option. I want to get rid of the bookmarks associated with several dates, but there is no way to do this unless I can delete the date (or dates) from the list.Otherwise, I cannot delete the objectionable bookmarks associated with those dates. Why not include a delete option when selecting a specific date? Firefox version 92.0.

I'm posting this again because I really need help! Also because I'm afraid I messed something up by replying to my own question. But I kept getting the "A copy of Firefox is already open" error, so I deleted one of the two profiles that I found. Apparently I chose the wrong one, and now all of my bookmarks are gone. I DID click something that said NOT to remove all my information (bookmarks, etc) so there must be a way to get it back, but how? I really only care about the bookmarks. Also want to mention that I'm on Mac, not Windows. I tried something called Recuva but I can't run .exe files on my Mac.

Hello. I have a (presumably) broken install of Firefox that never loads and I plan to totally uninstall Firefox (I have the beta version and I plan to get the normal version, unless you guys have a better solution to try), but first I just need to salvage my carefully curated bookmarks from this install before I nuke it (uninstall, do a clean-up, and reinstall a totally different version). Since normally once has to open the browser and enter settings (or bookmarks perhaps, I forget the exact process off the top of my head and clearly can't go look) to export bookmarks, I'm at a loss of how to accomplish this task. I've included a screenshot of what Firefox does when I open it. No amount of waiting does any good, this is all it does, and this is all it has done for over a year, despite numerous updates. Clearly the install is corrupted and I need to start fresh, but I need those bookmarks if at all possible. Is it possible? I've just switched to Chrome for the past year hoping it would eventually work itself out with an update, but that was clearly wishful thinking. I actually hate Chrome and would really like to get back to using Firefox, but I've let this linger for a year because I really do not want to lose those bookmarks and doing nothing and having a case of Schrodinger's bookmarks is somewhat better than having bookmarks that are gone forever.
