I want to import my mobile Safari bookmarks into Firefox on my desktop. I have read many articles on here but none of them have helped. I had hopes for this one(https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285031) but it was unclear whether the user was on a Mac or PC.

I have already installed iCloud for Windows and the iCloud Bookmarks add-on in Firefox. I have supposedly performed the sync operation already, but nothing seems to have transferred. I have neither the Safari bookmarks in Firefox, nor the Firefox bookmarks in Safari(which I do not want or care about as Safari will be deleted when I am done with all this) I don't see any options to adjust any kind of settings in either program.

I very much would like to get this iCloud thing to work. If that continues to be unsuccessful, is it possible to create an HTML file from the mobile Safari bookmarks and import THAT into Firefox?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Icons for bookmarks imported from Chrome are not displaying properly either on Bookmarks Toolbar or in folders

  • Windows 10 Professional PC (updated fully)
  • Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit)
  • Chrome Version 87.0.4280.141 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Here is what I have done: 1. Installed Firefox (new installation) 2. Imported Chrome bookmarks - only 1% of bookmark icons display properly. All others are the segmented globe icon. 3. Installed DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, AdBlock Plus and Emoji extensions 4. Installed EverSync 18.5.7 5. Tested disabling all extensions: no improvement.

I display icons only on the toolbar to maximize accessibility of often used bookmarks, so this issue is important for me to resolve if I want to use Firefox regularly.

This is for my office PC. I do not have this issue at home running Windows 10 Home on desktop PC and laptop PC.

Thanks much,

Lee

Hello someone, anyone. I'm trying to import Bookmarks from a Time Machine backup. I've looked everywhere and tried everything I know and I'm not new to computers, although I have not had to import bookmarks in a long time. I'm on an Imac Catalina, backup is on High Sierra, current OS is 10.15.7 Catalina, lost my bookmarks when I upgraded to Catalina because I had to do a clean install. Any help would be greatly appreciate and I may consider putting you in my Will. Robert

Hello, very recently started to use Firefox rather than Chrome and it is taking a little time to learn so apologies if there is an obvious solution to this!!

I have been merrily adding bookmarks (after importing existing ones from Chrome) and they have all worked well (including inserting folders etc) until one to this site:

https://www.voipcheap.co.uk/dashboard

I have added an image to show 2 views on my Firefox installation to demonstrate.

I added it into a sub folder (I thought) but it did not appear. I added it directly to the main Bookmarks toolbar and it did not appear. I played around for a while and thought I had solved it - when looking at the Bookmarks in Sidebar view I can see a folder (that I created) and inside it is a bookmark to the site. Trying it to view it by clicking through from the main toolbar window does not show it.

I am lost at what might be the problem - so if anyone is willing to try adding the site as a favourite in various places and anything else, if it does work can you help me get it to work in my installation with any suggestions? Just for completeness, please add it first as a favourite on the toolbar directly where I could not get the basic globe icon to appear.

The only non standard thing I have done (on my desktop machine) is to add an extension that gives me colours rather than the standard greys but I have not used this yet on my laptop - the problem is the same but without the colours.

I used to be able to import bookmarks from Chrome that resulted in a single folder saying its from Chrome and inside the folder were all my bookmarks. That was up to yesterday. Now, it results in each individual file and folder being sent to Firefox instead of in a folder. And when I import those bookmarks from Chrome after making changes in the Chrome bookmark folders, they DONT change in Firefox; the same "old" information is still there. So the import bookmarks from another browser is now totally useless.

Hi there,

since my FF updated to 85.0 my Bookmarks Toolbar is now totally wrecked.

Here's what happened and happens:

Problem #1: Disappearing new bookmarks See screenshots 1-4 for that. 1a) If I drag & drop an open tab to the Bookmarks Toolbar, the bookmark is created and stays there for <1 second. It immediately is automatically removed from that toolbar and moved to Bookmarks Menu.

1b) If I change the bookmarks properties and set another place, e.g. the Bookmarks Toolbar, it will be added correctly to that place - so that works.

1c) If I reimport my bookmark backup, Firefox will not add the respective bookmarks back to the Bookmarks Toolbar, it stays empty. Under "Customize" I can still find the "Bookmark Toolbar Items" item placed on that Bookmarks Toolbar.

What would be the possible reason for that behaviour? Did FF 85.0 changed something regarding bookmark handling?


Problem #2: Duplicate "Bookmarks Toolbar" folders See screenshots 5-6 for that. Now I switched my FF language to English. That is when discovered that FF put my "Bookmarks Toolbar"-bookmarks into an extra folder called "Lesezeichen-Symbolleiste" (translated = Bookmarks Toolbar) inside my "Bookmark Menu" folder.

So either a migration happened or some underlying structure of the bookmark system changed and Firefox did not migrate the old to the new location for foreign languages?
