Good afternoon,

I recently updated my Mozilla Firefox and all my bookmarks where lost.

I have tried everything online to recovery the recent bookmarks but I can only recovery older ones or ones from safari which I do not really use anymore.

Can you please help me recovering my recent bookmarks?

Thank you

Warm regards Filip Sali (email removed from public)

Hello -

I recently organized my bookmarks through "manage bookmarks" and it worked fine for a few days. Now, the organization I did does not show up on my bookmarks toolbar but it does show up when I click "manage bookmarks."

What's not syncing up? Any guidance is appreciated! Thank you!

The Firefox Sidebar is a very nice feature that I use to provide favorite bookmarks to an non-computer-savvy elderly parent. Unfortunately many times the "X" in the upper right of the sidebar is accidentally clicked which results in a phone call or remote login session to recover. It would be helpful if there was an option to "lock" the sidebar so it cannot be closed by an unsavvy user. In addition, it would be valuable if the sidebar lock prevented the user from collapsing/expanding (changing) the bookmark lists in the sidebar. Once they are "locked" (by a computer proficient person), no changes are allowed to the sidebar by a careless user.

I used to have 'Word Hippo' (an on-line thesaurus which I use daily) in my bookmarks, but it has gone and I can't access it on Firefox to re-install it. It is accessible on Chrome but not on Firefox which seem strange, and understandably it won't transfer from there into Firefox Bookmarks.

recent iOS update to Catalina 10.15.7 resulted in deleting Firefox entirely. Just reloaded Firefox browser (which I prefer to Safari) but none of my bookmarks survived. Can I restore them from some record of them within Firefox? or do I just have to recreate them all?

I would like more visible space for frequently used bookmarks. I find a single row not very workable after using Firefox for a couple of years. A provision for 2 or 3 rows below the current single row would be very much appreciated. Having done some searching to see if this is currently possible I found that this seems to be of interest to many current uses of Firefox.

Is there a way to do this that I missed? Or what can be done to add this enhancement quickly?

My Firefox just updated from 95 to 96.0 and all of my bookmarks have disappeared. I have the bookmarks toolbar but everything in the Bookmarks menu is gone. If I open Firefox on my alternate PC everything is still there but that Firefox shows it is still in 95.2 but I have not restarted it to make it 96.0 I have not experienced this problem before.

I have exported the bookmarks from the alternate PC to its desktop as an HTML and as a JSON file.

Suggestions?
