(I'll try posting this on the WD website as well.)

I'm using Firefox 100 on Win10 and can't save any bookmarks. They do NOT appear under the App Data Profile, which would not be acceptable even if they were. This change has made it impossible for me to continue using Firefox, unless I want to go back to Win7.

I simply need Bookmarks to work the way they did before!

Thank you for your time.

Hi there, I run FF 73 on Lubuntu, and since the upgrade chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul is no longer found. I use it as a handy bookmarks and downloads manager within a tab. Error message:

"Firefox can't find the file at jar:file:///usr/lib/firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/browser/content/browser/places/places.xul. "

I realize that this question is similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223548#answer-1127393 but it doesn't solve my issue. In fact the URI's listed also don't work I have found:

   chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/historySidebar.xul 

Please advise. Thanks for your help!

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...

I have a series of 20 or so webpages that I like to read first thing in the morning. When I open Firefox and click on "Open All in Tabs" it creates a tab for each website, but won't load that website until I select the address bar and press enter. It doesn't happen all the time, but I'd say 95% of the time.

Attempting to seach for a bookmark (in Firefox Library) causes "not responding" message, altho search is completed in 8 minutes. Help?

Hi...Every time I attempt to search for a bookmark by clicking "show your bookmarks" (or Ctrl/shift/b), then selecting "all bookmarks", then attempting to type something in the search box, it freezes...and just allows me to press enter, it then turns the "x" in the top right red, and gives a "Not responding" message next to Library(in the top left)..I can still click the red x to cancel the search.

I say attempting to do a search, as it only allows me to type up to 4 (is the most) letters in the search box...its often just one letter before it freezes, and the curser turns into a spinning blue circle....If i just leave it for around 8 minutes,(after pressing enter) it then lists my bookmarks with the search criteria I had used, and the "Not responding" message disappears....and the machine goes back to normal

I have tried removing all my addons and extensions, tried renaming my prefs.js file, but it still hangs and takes 8 minutes.

I havent as yet done a reinstall of Firefox without any of my personal data, or tried a refresh.

The laptop is an HP i7 16gb ram, Win 10 Pro 64bit 1909, Firefox 76.0.1...with all updates present.

My eyesight is limited. Unfortunately, I am unable to determine where in the toolbar of the library window the button for exporting bookmarks to an html file can be found. The attached image provides an idea of what I am looking at.

IMAGE: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-05-18-05-49-03-6c245b.png

The reason I am looking in the toolbar of the library window is the Firefox documentation for version 76 on a mac corresponds to the Firefox version I have and the computer I am running it on states:

From the toolbar on the Library window, click BUTTON ICON (PLEASE REFER TO ATTACHED SKETCH) Import and Backup and choose Export Bookmarks to HTML...

I looked across the toolbar, then the entire Window marked "Library". I wrote a program to search the Library window for an image that could conceivably be the button indicated in the documentation. Sadly, the results of these efforts is I am here requesting assistance. It is not that I do not love each and every one of you, but my preference is not to have to take the time for putting together a question to post here. It does not take long, but when we live at internet speed, every microsecond counts, I know you agree with this very important principle, particularly in light of the visit currently taking place where Covid and his entourage have all of us ridiculously locked up. We have flattened the curve and also found out the numbers Fauci and Birx showed the President to justify this lockdown have been proven, not correct, more like wildly wrong. So while we wait for the lockdown to be cancelled, my preference due to how my parents raised me is to be able to find the button described in the documentaiton, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, button not there... unless maybe you can see it and I am missing it.. My hopes is you will refer to the image at this link in order to enhance the likelihood of success in my quest of the moment, i.e., making my quesiton understandable to anyone who might be interested or/and able to persist in pointing out the location of the great button of the bookmark export.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-05-18-05-49-03-6c245b.png


Any assistance you can provide would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

I have two desktops and two laptops, all set to sync with the same account. Normally everything works great, a bookmark changed on a desktop changes on the other sync'd devices. But, today I turned on one of my laptops that hasn't been on for awhile and the bookmarks on it were quite outdated. It sync'd up so the other computers now have the older bookmarks :( I went to my desktop, restored a good bookmark backup file from yesterday but it reverted back to that old bookmarks file from my laptop. Is there a way I can control this better when powering on a laptop with old bookmarks? I assumed in this case it would sync and get current bookmarks instead of syncing up old bookmarks and my other computers then syncing down those older bookmarks. Help unconfuse me so this doesn't happen again, please.

HI I have just updated FF from a very old version to 77.0b8 (64-bit). My favourite bookmarks bar had coloured (like windows) folder icons, now they are black, bland and horrible. I have tried searching for an add on that changes the folder icon colours, but the search brings up far to many bookmark add ons not related. I have tried many different searches but can't get a result. Does anyone know of a mod/add on, or a way to change the Folder icons colour please? Many thanks for reading.

Why has Firefox started automatically adding bookmarks without asking me what to name them. In the past, when you clicked on “Bookmark This Page” a box popped up and asked you what you wanted to name the bookmark and where you wanted it to be saved. Now a little blue flag appears at top right corner of the screen and your bookmark has already been added. You then have to right click on the bookmark to edit it’s properties. Does anyone know how to change that back to the way it was ? Thank you so very much for your help on this.
