My bookmarks disappear when I click on them or they don't open at all. - please see attached images - I've already cleared the cache and restored the bookmarks three times but everything remains the same. I copy the exactly same link to Chrome and everything is working, therefore, it has nothing to do with the possibility of the addresses being corrupted. Can someone help me on this one? Thank you in advance.

When I select "bookmark this tab", in the Firefox browser, I used to get the window allowing you to choose where to put the new bookmark. This 'bookmark location' window no longer appears so you don't know where the bookmark has gone. Prior to now, this feature has always worked fine.

I quit Firebox and reopened it but the problem remains.

I'm using Firefox 119.0.1 (64 bit) (the most current vers.) on a Macbook Pro running Ventura 13.3. I switched from Chrome to Firefox on this new Mac.

Please help!

Thanks very much.

Hi, all of my bookmarks, years' worth that I have never had an issue with before, have suddenly disappeared. Backups do not seem to be available. How do I get them back? I did not do anything out of the ordinary and I don't know if (an unasked for) update occurred and wiped them.

I have lost all my Bookmarks - they have the same name, but the icon & address is wrong.

  • This is on-going = I cannot Bookmark without it occuring.
  • I have attempted to restore to a previous point, but the issue did not resolve.
  • This occurs over all my synced devices. (I have now stopped Firefox syncing.)
  • The incorrect icon & address is from a 'trusted' site (ie. national govt, email provider etc) that I have previously visited, but never Bookmarked.

Please help as I use Bookmarks professionally & have built an excellent database over many years.

- thank you -

Firefox 119.0 (64-bit) bookmarks are becoming irresponsive on Mac os Sonoma 14.0

Hello everyone, since my recent update on Mac OS Sonoma 14.0, my Firefox 119.0 (64-bit) bookmarks are becoming irresponsive.

When I hover over any bookmark in my Firefox side bar, it suddenly becomes invisible, and sometimes its entire folder disappear from the side bar from where it has previously been saved, as well as any next bookmark in the same folder. Yet it is still in the bookmark folder, but i have to relaunch Firefox to find it again!

Here are enclosed 2 screen captures. See the section called "A LIRE PRIO 2023-10" just below "00 sources" when I initially opened it on my side bar, it was visible, and when I clicked on any of the bookmarks saved in the folder "01 A LIRE PRIO 2023-10", the entire folder "01 A LIRE PRIO 2023-10" disappeared!

Yet if I go into my Firefox folder, it is still there. If i click on the next folder (from the lateral bar), it will disappear again!

Does anyone have had the same problem and found a solution?

Will appreciate as I had to move to google but does not enjoy it in the same way as Firefox (been on it since 2012!).

Thanking you all in anticipation.

How to fix Firefox so that it uses the default (globe) icon for all un-visited bookmarks, as it did before?

Using YouTube for example...

Previously, when I bookmarked a page/video (URL), if the newly bookmarked page (URL) had previously been visited, the bookmark would be displayed in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a typical "YouTube Play Button" icon (favicon). But, if the newly bookmarked page (URL) has never been visited, then the bookmark would be displayed in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a default "Globe" icon (favicon).

I almost always create bookmarks by dragging links/URLs from the browser client area to a folder in the bookmarks list in the sidebar (and sometimes/rarely, to a folder on the Bookmarks Toolbar). But the same happens if I manually create a new bookmark to a "Visited" or "Un-visited" page.

Recently, this behavior just changed "without notice"...

Now, when I drag a link/URL from a the "Recommended videos column" on the right side of a YouTube page/video, to the bookmarks list in the sidebar, the bookmark is ALWAYS displayed in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a typical "YouTube Play Button" icon (favicon), regardless of whether the page had previously been visited, or not. Also, existing bookmarks for un-visited pages that were previously created, and were previously displayed in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a default "Globe" icon (favicon), are now displayed in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a typical "YouTube Play Button" icon (favicon).

How can I bring back the previous behavior of displaying bookmarks of un-visited pages/URLs in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a default "Globe" icon (favicon)?

Hello, I use the Manage Bookmarks / Library function a lot. However, it drives me crazy that the library always opens at the folder: Other Bookmarks/BSP2 trash folder . . . DO NOT REMOVE! I then have to navigate up to find the folder I need. This gets really tedious after a while.

Is there a way to get the library to open at another folder, preferably the most recent folder?

Thanks!

I'm on MacOS Sonoma 14.0. Since the Firefox update to v. 119.0, I have had a really strange issue which is hard to describe, but I'll try.

In the Bookmarks Sidebar, whenever I click a folder, it disappears from view leaving a blank, empty space. The folder is still there, and everything in the folder is visible, but the folder itself is just a blank space. When the blank space is clicked on, the folder reappears and can still be selected, but the folder beneath it becomes invisible. It is almost as though the background and the foreground text and folder outline are the same color. The same thing occurs with History. The bookmarks themselves never become invisible, just the folders.

Has anyone seen this behavior? Does anyone have any idea how to fix it?

Thanks.

Had to reinstall my pc over consistent error messages (thank you windows 10 for being the same pos system), and now all my bookmarks are gone, the bookmark backup folder is also empty, I have two years worth of personal and business related sites saved that will cripple me financially and mentally if I can't get them back.

Reaching out to Sync to try that, but looking for any kind of alternative fix here to recover the bookmarks.
