I haven't been able to delete or add to my bookmarks in years! Despite upgrading my MacBook to the latest ios and updating Firefox to the latest version. I've lived with it until now and just haven't used bookmarks in ages, but I want to start using them again. I can't change any bookmarks, in the menu or the toolbar. None of the bookmark buttons or shortcuts work. How can I fix this?

Hi. I just added a new bookmark subfolder, and want to move it up to a new position within it's folder. When I try to drag and drop it in the Bookmark Sidebar (as you can do in Google Chrome), it won't move. Is it possible to organize bookmark folders by moving them in Firefox, and if so, how can it be done?

I am personally studying the subject of "Neuroplasticity" for my own further education? I had a quite serious accident in 2012, which unfortunately left me with "slight" brain damage? I use the word slight to describe it, as that was the word "experts" used? How tragically mistaken they were in using that word? hahaha !!!! Anyway, some specific parts of my brain made me a physical cripple? By strength of will & great physical effort I was able to turn the clock back in my mind to an earlier era in my life? About 20 or 30 years? Although I was 65+ when I left hospital, visits to a friend in The Philippines, & great deal of help patience & effort from her enabled me to get my mind & body back to the level of fitness that I thought I had immediately before the accident? Which I perceived or imagined was approximately age 45 to 50? Anyway, more on this subject for anybody who has sufficient interest to write & enquire? All that I need to know now is how to create a bookmark or file containing only "NEUROPLASTCITY" items or website links?

When I was organizing several bookmarks in my Bookmark Folder entitled "Main Dishes" (as I remember), I believe I double clicked or similar and lost the total folder which contains between 100 & 200 bookmarks! I have not turned off my computer. The closest topic I could find has to do with "Smart Bookmark Folders" which does not seam to apply. If my brain is correct on this, I thought I saw right below the Smart Bookmark folder the appropriate topic regarding bringing back a bookmark folder, but somehow that topic has seemed to disappear. This folder's information has been gathered over a period of 2 to 3 years. I would be so grateful if you could help me. Thank You....Charles Perryman PS...I AM SO SORRY...SOMEHOW THE FOLDER HAS NOW REAPPEARED IN MY LIST OF FOLDERS!!!! I AM SORRY TO TAKE YOUR TIME ON THIS....I AM VERY HAPPY, BUT VERY DUMBFOUNDED!!!!

somehow the bookmarks toolbar on chrome now reflects my Firefox bookmarks and all my chrome bookmarks seem to have been sent to the end of the "merged" bookmarks toolbar. to find them i need to hit the >> and scroll down a long list.

If i move them around on chrome or firefox the changes are reflected on the other browser.

If i delete one it deletes from both.

How do i unlink the two, and how the heck did they become linked?

I run two different browsers at work for different purposes so each has a different set of required bookmarks.

When I try to bookmark a website, I am offered a list of most recently used folders (or choose to select from the entire set of bookmarks). If I want to select from the MRU, and click one line, the selection reverts to another line (last used) before I can click on "done". If I am fast enough, I can select the wanted folder, which then becomes the new "default".

Also if I do try to choose and create a new folder in the bookmarks, before I am able to type a character, the dialog box closes immediately and I am left with "New Folder" - which I then have to double click on to edit the name.

If I try to drag and drop a new bookmark onto the bookmark icon (the star with the line under it), it USED to open up Bookmarks and I could place the new bookmark where ever. That no longer works.

I CAN drag/drop into a folder on the menu bar but not into bookmarks directly.

Something messed up my bookmarks library by mixing up the folders as well as the messing the folder structure. I would like to restore my months-old bookmarks backup but I would also like to export and maybe later merge bokmarks and (especially!) bookmark folders I created after the hiatus happened.

Is there any kind of a tool which will verify my bookmarks and let me know which ones no longer work? Many of my bookmarks are very old and I'm sure there are several which are no longer valid. I would like to clean them up; however, I don't have time to check them one by one.

I started up Firefox today and my bookmark folders are all empty. The folder titles show up in my toolbar but contain no websites and there are no bookmarks appearing that were not in folders. Everything else on Firefox seems to be fine. My passwords and settings are all the same. My homepage is not set anymore though either. I tried refreshing Firefox, I tried copying the files from the "old firefox data" that was created when I refreshed, I tried restarting my computer and firefox, but none of that has helped. There is only one default profile, no other profiles.

hey you guys,

I've been having plenty of weird stuff happen lately with a lot of different software programs. MS office, my website, my FTP client and now this whole thing with FF. right now, if I del/add/edit a bookmark in the BM bar on top of the browser window, the change is not reflected THERE or in the "show bookmarks" window where you can see all of you BM's. Is there a reason for this? or is this just a consequence of MS not paying attention to their windows updates? thanks!
