My bookmark list is very large due to multiple imports from other browsers, syncing and not managing. There are currently well over 1200 bookmarks in my toolbar. I am trying to delete the majority of them. I have tried to backup and export before I do this, and have been unable. Firefox won't create any files. I have tried all other suggestions on the forum, stopping sync, Verifying the Integrity, renaming the places.sqlite file, and also refreshing and re-installing Firefox. Nothing works. I also find that Firefox is consistently using over 50% of CPU resources. So the program feels very sluggish. I will post the Verify integrity log below.

Hi, I am asking for your help in addition to your patience as I am not a tech savvy person AT ALL.

That being said, Firefox installed a new version of the browser last night as it has done many times over the years I have used their browser. Nothing looked different until I wanted to bookmark a website.

When I click on bookmarks, it use to have the option which said (I think) "bookmark this page" which is how I have always saved pages. That option is no longer there, it is gone. I do not make changes on this computer on my own. I do not know what I'm doing and have no one to help so if I were to mess something up, I'm in trouble.

I did read through posts before asking for help, went to the help section Firefox has. I went to the page which says Troubleshoot & diagnose Firefox problems. As I went through each step, nothing changed so I reinstalled Firefox. Obviously it did not change the issue I am having.

I am very careful when I get online; I don't click on links, pop up ads, etc. ever! Is there anyone who can help as I do not know what to do, and again, have no one I can ask or go to for help. I am attaching a screenshot which gives the info on the version of FF I have. I thank you all for your time and am keeping my fingers crossed this is a simple fix!

The following css used to work to remove items from Bookmarks menu:

#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#organizeBookmarksSeparator{display: none !important;}
#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#menu_bookmarkAllTabs{display: none !important;}
#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#bookmarksShowAll{display: none !important;}

It no longer works in FF88. How to fix?

N.B. There wasn't a way to hide "other bookmarks" from the bookmarks MENU (This has nothing to do with the unrelated TOOLBAR issue, and the settings for that do not affect the menu)

Where are my saved websites saved? Also, am I able to "share" the file over my LAN? I have a desktop PC and a laptop connected to my network. What I would like to do is make it so whether I save (or bookmark?) a site on the laptop or desktop it is available on both. Does this make sense? If I need to do a better job explaining just let me know. Currently, I am successfully sharing the IE 'Favorites' folder so the links are always in sync and the same links are available on both of my machines.

Hi, please could I have some help with the following?

I had firefox installed on the same partition as the windows I booted from. Due to an error this partition would no longer boot and I had to install windows and firefox clean on a seperate drive.

I've managed to get the partition working again and can access all the files on it again. Unfortunately when i load up the firefox on the previously failed partition it appears to load up the same version as I installed most recently. None of my old book marks are in the menu which is what I am trying to access. I've looked on here for help and the following don't seem to apply to me...

- There's no profiles folder in the old partition so I can't find Places.sqlite. - Troubleshooting>Show Folder points to the application data on the new install drive - There doesn't appear to be backup.json files on the old partition

So my question is is there anywhere on the old partition you can think where my old bookmarks may be stored?

Any suggestions would be appreciated Many thanks JD

In the previous versions of Firefox, when you click on the star near the url, you can add this website on your favorites. Another click and you can edit some fields about this bookmark, like the url, the folder, etc...

But with FF17, the Description field is no longer there. You can only find it when managing your bookmarks, that is not really user friendly.

Is there a way to add again the description field when clicking on the gold star? It's very useful for adding notes about this website, and it's also synch with addins like Xmarks

I accidentally replaced my backup with the current bookmarks while trying to import from it. The original bookmarks were not present in Bookmark Backup in Profiles so I used Recuva for recovery. Now, Firefox gives the 'Unable to process backup file' thingy.

System Restore hasn't helped either.

I have Firefox 12 with the Sidebar Bookmark Selector 2.3 app. They've been running together for atleast a few years now. Starting last week when I open my bookmarks I'll get underlines going through any that I run over with the mouse in an upwards fashion. If I go up 10 bookmarks, there will be ten underlines. If I go back down through them, they all erase. What the heck is going on?? Any google search with the words "Firefox" and "underlining" will only bring you to an answer of going into tools, options, colors, and unchecking the underlining box. This is not it. This is driving me mad! Any suggestions? I don't even know at this point if it has anything to do with either one of them at this point.

I recently began using Xmarks with Firefox 16 on a Windows 7 platform. I got some sort of an error message (I think from Xmarks) regarding "Bookmarks". I clicked on the message to fix the problem and zapp all my bookmarks were gone. I found my "bookmarksbackup" profile file. but can't get it to open. I suppose that I need a JSON viewer. I downloaded a opensource viewer that looked good, but still don't get anything that remotely resembles my old bookmarks. I thought that I might be the victim of a virus, but I'm probably just the victim of my own ignorance.
