I created an account for the new firefox on my laptop to sync my bookmarks. However, I can't retrieve them when I log into the account on my desktop. Nothing changed after login.

All the newest bookmarks was on my laptop but my laptop has been formatted due to some serious problem. How could I retrieve my bookmarks from firefox sync?

Hi,

I've reinstalled Windows on my computer and thought that the sync option on Firefox would help me recover my bookmarks. It saved successfully my passwords, my add-ons, but I lost all my bookmarks. Do you have an idea how I could get a hand on it ?

Thank you

I wanted to register for sync with an email address like xxxx@yyyy.eu This is a domain I own and I have quite a number of email addresses that are delivered correctly. I never got (I tried three times over the past week to register) a confirmation link email. Today I tried with an email address xxxx@yyyy.com and the confirmation link email address was in my inbox after a minute. Of course I would like to use the eu damoin name email address. Any help is welcome. Thank you!

Thanks for giving us the Sync function. But, never have I seen any mention of applying this to Sync bokmarks among Windows User Accounts or Mac Profiles. I am running Windows 8 (soon to go to 8.1 Update - - or, maybe, to Windows 7 Professional, if M$ cannot straighten out and fly right with 8.1U) on the HP notebook, and Mac OS X Lion (soon to go up to Mavericks or Yosemite) and I would like to take the good advice and do most of my browsing in the non-admin users instead of the Admins, but ... when I add some Bookmarks in one User, I needto find the new Bookmarks available in the other as soon as I switch Users. Please advise; someone expert in Windows/Firefox, and someone (maybe the same?) for Mac/Firefox. Your helpful assistance will be appreciated.

I have a clickfree backup drive and my computer crashed. I restored it to factory settings and reinstalled Firefox but cannot figure out how to get my old bookmarks back. I tried to replace the new places.sqlite file with the one I had on my backup drive but still got nothing? I tried to use the restore option but it won't take the old places.sqlite file. Is there anyway to get my old bookmarks? I'm really not a techy person..... Thanks

How do I customize the tab text displayed on bookmarked sites?

I often use "open all as tabs" for a bookmark folder of weather.com "5 day forecast" sites covering the towns in a geographical region where I plan to go hiking.

One Firefox browser with six tabs for six towns in my state. "5 day forecast for Gorham," "5 day forecast for Jackson," "5 day forecast for Lincoln," etc.

The problem is the tab displays only some of the first few words of the site description: "5 day forcas," "5 day forcas," "5 day forcas," etc.

I'd like to display only the end of that sentence, which is the name of the town. This way I would have a list of towns across the top of the browser for direct reference.

I changed the "name" property of each bookmark, but that only affects the name in the bookmark collection list, not the display name of a tab in use.

I'm logged in to sync with the most up-to-date version (I think) on both computers, but the bookmarks from my macbook pro will not copy over to the firefox bookmarks on my mac. I've tried about:sync-log, because I saw on another solution that it might give information, but all that comes up it: { } So I am thinking that none of it is working. Please help!

The server my FireFox beta 32 uses is: sync-44-us-west-2.sync.services.mozilla.com:443 and for about 5 days now, it is really slow (like 5 minutes) sync'ing my Bookmarks, etc.

What's up ??

Previously, sync would take a maximum of about 5 seconds.... This is by pressing the Sync NOW button.

I currently sync bookmarks across 3 computers and my ipad. Recently, bookmarks seems to be disappearing randomly. Sometimes whole folders, sometimes the folder remains but is empty. On other occassions after I recreate the bookmark, they randomly appear but in a completely different order. Today, they have duplicated randomly so I have numerous folders with the same name appear in my bookmarks, I'm guessing as a result of me recreating them when they have disappeared.

I am the only person with access to these computers.

Can you please help as it's getting extremely annoying.

Kind regards

A bookmark was clearly corrupt and created hundreds of copies of itself. All have the exact same time stamp. If I so much as touch the affected bookmark folder, Firefox becomes 'unresponsive' and never recovers. I have to close it. I have successfully moved all good bookmarks in that folder to a new folder, leaving the bad bookmarks behind. I can not delete the folder they are in and can not delete them individually as clicking on one of them causes the 'unresponsive' problem. Can't find bookmark files on my hard-drive other than backups that I can't open.

So. How do I get rid of this buggy bunch of stuff? I'm using windows 8.1.

A year or so ago I changed from Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firefox. Someone helped me at the time, figuring out how to move my IE Favorites to Mozilla Bookmarks, and then secondly how to have the Folder list (alphabetically) at the top of all the other Bookmarks. I was just now using a sub-listing under one of the folders; finished and went back to the mail folder to choose another sub-listing, and the main folder just disappeared! I tried rebooting to see if that might help, but it didn't. This is a major folder that I use very frequently, that is an accumulation of years of work acquiring! I would be VERY grateful for any help!
