I have installed a new computer (Mac mini). I have synchronized with old computer (imac 2011). All bookmarks transferred successfully to new computer. In the right places etc (Bookmarks menu; Bookmarks toolbar etc ). All the headings in the toolbar are correct with all the bookmarks in the dropdown menus from the toolbar as before. The problem is when I go to ADD a New bookmark the old toolbar headings don't show up in the Add Bookmarks dropdown options. How do I add a new bookmark into a list of an existing toolbar heading or existing list from the toolbar ?

Two weeks ago I reloaded Windows 10 because of a suspected malware infection. This required me to reload my apps. After reloading Firefox the custom icons have disappeared from some, but not all of the toolbar menu items. Why? Rather, a little globe appears, which I'm guessing is a default icon. -- Why did some of the icons disappear while others did not? -- How do I remove the "little globes" as they're just taking up space and have no meaning -- Where do the custom items come from?

I have the most recent Firefox and the most recent Windows. I cannot alphabetize my favorite websites. I have added everything to the "Other bookmarks" tab and I cannot find anywhere to automatically alphabetize my favorites. I click on show all bookmarks and add folders in an effort to alphabetize but they don't even show up when I go into the "Other Bookmarks" tab.

1) How to alphabetize 2) How to add folders

Thanks!

Hello there,

I am having issues restoring a profile for an user. Long story short, there was some malware messing with the computer, and in the process of quarantine and cleaning the machine out, the Firefox Profile got deleted. I was able to recover the Profile folder, and I see all the files and folders there (places.sqlite, bookmarkbackups, cookies.sqlite, etc.)

I have been following the process of restoring the profile, (copying and pasting those files on a new profile for example). However, every time I move all the files back, and open Firefox, it creates a places.sqlite.corrupt, and a couple of other 'corrupt' files. And none of the bookmarks or any other info get restored.

Any advise? Thanks in advance!

Why has firefox deleted my bookmarks, It's getting as bad as microsoft. Don't ask just screw us over and no answers to fix it. Problem is this bullshit has been going on for years and it is still a problem,why can't this be fixed or stopped. I now have to try and find how to get all my log ins for banking and alot of other important sites. I see below you have some educated guesses, well I don't need guesses I need the problem fixed. I fear downloading from your site as it might destroy more of my system. I don't see no dam window at the top.

How can I get my bookmarks back and stop it happening again.Please.

We have one desktop with two users. Previously, we were both able to have individual/different Firefox bookmarks in the toolbar when we each logged into our separate desktop accounts. Now, Firefox is only showing one persons bookmarks on both desktop accounts at sign on. How can we get back to our own individual/different bookmarks on Firefox?

I have two bookmarks tagged with `tools` and `music`. When I write `tools music` in the browser bar, 4 Google search results appear, followed by one bookmark, the other is not shown at all.

Is there a way to specifically search by tags? Ideally I would like to have both bookmarks appear in front of my suggestions.

thank you.

I just finished installing Ubuntu 20.04. When I started Firefox for the first time, it told me I was using an 'out of date' version and advised me to update. I clicked on OK to do the update and thought it strange when Firefox started that it didn't have my home page. I immediately went to check the settings (now Preferences) and saw that the Home page was gone. I suspected that something had been done with my Firefox settings and checked my Bookmarks only to find them all gone. I don't believe that Firefox development would be so crass / careless as to delete my Bookmarks in this fashion. How can I retrieve them ?

Hello,

since the latest update, all of my saved bookmarks, passwords, history and so on is completely gone. Luckily I could save the profile files on the computer in windows. Firefox was starting in a blank version telling me, that my old profile could not be used anymore.

Therefore I need help to "install" my old profile again to get back my bookmarks and additional information.

Thanks
