Windows and/or Firefox updated recently and something odd is happening. If I open Firefox from my desktop I can access my bookmarks, no problem. If I read my emails in Windows Live Mail and click on a link from an email to a website, the web page opens but I cannot access my bookmarks from this window. They just aren't there. I have to go and open Firefox from the desktop or from the icon in the menu bar.

Anyone have an idea what happened and how to fix?

Hello everyone!

I've been having problem with duplicating bookmarks ever since I started using Firefox a few months ago.

1) The browser does not notify me when I'm saving bookmark(s) I already have, (then forget days later).

    Previous browsers I've used have the same issues.

2) When I change a bookmark's folder (for organizational purposes), it retains the book mark in both places.

    I have duplicated the process many times, and it has, on the blue remove button, the number of
   duplicates (ie: 2 bookmarks).


I have tried the following:

1) Perusing Help/Community forums which don't seem to address the issue specifically, such as pointing to

    sync settings (which don't apply to me, as i only have one device).

2) Trying various extensions that only seem to apply to earlier versions of Firefox (based on forum dates).

The question I have is:

Why isn't this something that is embedded into the browser itself instead of relying on extensions that may work, but have glitches unto themselves? It seems like a pretty easy bit of coding (based on people I know who are pretty savvy).

Here are my system specs:

HP ENVY Windows 10 Home 10.0.19041 Build 19041 (64 Bit) Firefox Version 78.0.2 (64-Bit)

Thanks in advance for your time & assistance!

Hello.

Is there a way to sync only specific bookmark folders between my PC's and phones? I love the Sync feature in Firefox. But I have many bookmark folders on one PC that I don't want transferred to my other PC nor to my phone. If Mozilla doesn't allow folder-specific syncing, is there an add-on feature that can accomplish this?

Thank you. I appreciate your help. -Brian in Alaska

Hello,

Last night I went to bed and all my bookmarks were there. Today I woke up and all the bookmarks are gone on my laptop and the open tabs, add-ons etc. I am signed in.

So Firefox did an update. Every time I tried to click on a link in my email, it would open a new window instead of a new tab in my currently opened window. It did not have any of my bookmarks or passwords either. This morning, I unpinned Firefox and went and found the program and re-pinned it to my task bar. Now I have the new version that does not have any of my bookmarks or log ins. Does anyone know how to set my PC back to fix this? I can't lost my bookmarks or my passwords.

I have just purchased a new iMac. The retailer instakked all myold software, including Firefox. When I opened Firefox I found a number of bookmarks for companies with which I no longer have any deakings, and I tried to delete them, following the proceedures in Firefox Help. But it didn't work, either way. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of these annoying bookmarks?

I have a bookmarks menu link on the bookmarks toolbar. When I save a new bookmark to one of the folders it does not appear. It does appear when I click on the saved history icon. However, if I open the bookmarks sidebar from the history icon and navigate to the same folder, the new bookmark appears but it is missing many other bookmarks that are in the other folder.. I can also save the bookmark to the toolbar and it appears there. Also I can cut an paste the bookmark from the toolbar to the folder. I've tried disabling add-ons and that doesn't fix the problem. There clearly are two sets of bookmarks. How do point Firefox to the one I want?

I clicked on my Win 7 Mozilla shortcut. A message came up that an upgrade was being installed and the browser would start in a moment. Upon completion a tab was open on Mozilla.org stating all my bookmarks were gone but could be retrieved from my Mozilla account after logging in. 1. Prior to now, I didn't have an account until I created one to ask for help. 2. It was actually a Downgrade for whatever reason. I was running version 73 or higher and now the version with no bookmarks is ver 63ESR.

There is no Old Data folder on my desktop and if I try Restore bookmarks it asks if I want to restore 11 bookmarks. I had well over 100 bookmarks before this disaster.

I recently upgraded my old MacBookPro with new hardware (2TSSD, 16GB memory, etc.). Before I upgraded, I backed up my hard drive using Mac's TimeMachine. And then, after loading Catalina in the upgraded MacBook, I "restored" my "new" computer with the Time Machine Backup. I loaded&opened Firefox and clicked on the 64bit version, but I can't find any bookmarks from my old hard drive. Not sure where to look either on my Time machine backup, or on the "new" drive. ( I find most the articles about backup, library folders, etc. to be very confusing.)

I'd appreciate whatever help you can give in restoring my bookmarks. My current bookmarks are critical, and I use my older ones for reference all the time. Thanks
