Okay so last year I built myself a new desktop PC around August 2020. I was using an Android smartphone prior to that and had some bookmarks on it I wanted to transfer to the desktop. I mistakenly thought it would simply 'absorb' those Android bookmarks into the bookmark collection I already had on this new desktop, but after using sync, it straight up removed the desktop bookmarks that were there and replaced them with the android ones exclusively. Another neat little 'feature' is how the bookmarks were also completely erased from the Android device after this.

So once that happened, I restored my old desktop bookmarks, but then the bookmarks that were imported from the Sync from the android were now gone. My question is this: are those sync'd android bookmarks actually anywhere at all, like did Firefox automatically archive them somewhere just in case, or are they just lost completely? Thanks.

Use the current FF version 88.0.1 - Question about the bookmarks toolbar:

After the FF repair are the icons largely anonymized? They work fine - I'm just missing the typical website icon. For example the four-color ebay license plate. - How can I update the anonymous trademarks ??? 

Firefox-Sync is activated, but I've got no changes to the bookmarks-icons. Thanks for the tip ...

Hi, I have lost the "file, edit, history, bookmark ect" I have tried to resolve this myself but all the help on the forum starts with click on the "3 vertical bars" I do not have this option, all I have is 3 dots which directs to "settings" which offers no help for the bookmark toolbar ? I have trolled the FF help pages but they all say the same thing to start with the "3 bar" icon. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've been using FF for 9yrs and have had no problems at all. Thankyou in advance.

Searching for bookmarks that disappeared, I discovered that my bookmarks are badly messed up. There appears to be two tiers of bookmarks (see image), and I have no idea how it got that way. Is there any way I can merge the 2nd tier back to the main tier? Running latest FF ESR version, Win10PRO 64 bit. Thanks....

Suddenly I have very old, deleted bookmarks reappearing in my bookmarks folders. I have to manually re-delete each one individually only to have them all reappear the next time I open Firefox. This has to end. What has Mozilla done? Another thought- if Mozilla does not keep any of our info how are bookmarks that have been deleted for more than 2 years deleted reappearing?

Hello, On May 14th 2021 an update occurred. I had no warning and I lost most of my computer settings as well all my Firefox bookmarks. I didn't manually backup my bookmarks lately so I thought I could retrieve them in the Windows.old file but there is no such file on my computer. If Firefow was also updated, why there hasn't been creation of a bookmarkbackup? Is there a way to recover my bookmarks? Thanks for your help. CLC

I recently tried to tidy up my browser bookmarks using 'manage bookmarks' and reordered them and removed several duplicates. The tree structure in the library looks kind-of weird too, as some directories such as 'bookmarks toolbar' appear 3 or 4 times, sometimes nested within itself.

After I had finished reorganising I exited and went to one of the directories on the bookmarks toolbar, but it is still showing all the old and duplicated bookmarks and none of the more recent ones.

What is happening, and is there anything I can do to fix it?

I really hope someone can help. I'm on a macbook Air and kept getting a Widevine cdm plugin crash error message coming up. Some help online said I should move my profile folder onto my desktop and this would solve the problem. I did this and now upon opening firefox browser all my bookmarks have gone and I seem to have a new firefox browser as is never used. I have no gone back into 'About Profiles' and have two directories 'local' and 'root' listed. I have no idea how to restore my old firefox browser and bookmarks. Help!

Firefox 88.0.1 bookmarks - I cannot backup nor save them nor export them to an HTML file nor JSON. I do not have any Firefox current Bookmark restore options. Unfortunately, I do not have a Firefox sync copy of my current bookmarks. I think this problem might have occurred when I last updated Firefox two or three versions ago. Thank you in advance for your help; it will be appreciated. Good Luck.

When selecting "show all bookmarks", recent bookmarks cannot be located or manipulated. Why would "recent bookmarks" be hidden and inaccessible to me and not show up on the manage bookmarks/show all bookmarks screens? I would prefer to be able to move my recent bookmarks to various folders, and not only 1 at a time. Thanks for any help.

Good day,

I have noticed that my Bookmark in the Bookmarks Toolbar sometimes requires 2 clicks to load Reddit.com. This is the only Toolbar Bookmark to exhibit this behavior. Every other bookmark I have loads the page after a single click of the icon on the Bookmark Toolbar. It appears the browser makes no effort to reach the Reddit site (could be an issue with Reddit.com, but it really appears FireFox just does nothing after the first click).

I first noticed this several months ago (maybe as long as a year ago), but assumed I was just missing the button. I have since ensured I carefully single click directly on the icon, no dragging, yet it still sometimes does not load Reddit after the first click. Very often it requires 2 clicks, as the first was totally non-responsive.

I have many Bookmarks on the Bookmark Toolbar that I use regularly. Reddit is the only one that exhibits this behavior.

How can I correct this behavior?

Thanks for your time, John
