Hi. The message "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..." has appeared at the top of my Firefox window. I don't think it's been there for more than a couple of days, so it must have been added by a recent update. I already have my bookmarks available just fine, so is there a way to get rid of the message? Thanks!

How do I set specific folder as my default saving place for new bookmarks? Until yesterday they went to Bookmarks Menu, but for some reason they go now to Other Bookmarks.

I've checked the about:config and browser.toolbars.bookmarks.2h2020 and it's already false, so that doesn't work.

I want to restore part of a large bookmark library, say 100 out of 800. I have both HDMI and JSON backups but they seem to want to only restore the entire library. I seem to be constantly "loosing" segments of my bookmarks. Some time later, they seem to show back up.???

Hello, Somehow I ended up setting my page layout to original default. Now my bookmarks are showing on the left side of screen. I want to put them back on the top of the page and also the usual menu that was there. I started messing around because firefox added another line under the tab and menu bar with something new like "get started." I just wanted to get rid of that prompt and the extra space it created, and that's why I ended up here.

20 Dec 2020--- Last night my PC was updated by both Firefox and Windows 10. I have no idea which order it occurred. The bottom line is I lost all my previous Firefox books marks also lost access to my Pocket account. When I went of get on my PC it was hung up. I finally was able to login in to the machine. It took a long time for it to go through the windows up date. When it did Window had changed all by browser setting for BING to be my browser. I spent time trying to clean up that mess. When I got to Firefox, it opened like I had never be in it before. When I did get logged in to the account and Firefox opened I had No Book Marks. While, working on the help request I check my pocket (I really love that Feature) and I was prompted to sign in and did. I behave like I had never accessed Pockets. I tried 3 times to use my account information and got user information is invalid (It's been the same since I started using pockets . I be weeks fixing the book marks and may never get all the Pocket stuff back.

I have a Laptop that uses Firefox. I checked it to see if there was any (silly stuff with it) and both bookmarks and pocket content have been available on it. The check show the bookmarks appear to 100% ok. There is no pocket icon on the laptop and the icon on the PC directs me to create an account or sign in my email and password are the same to login for Firefox and Pocket. Any help to restore both features would be helpful and how to prevent or decrease the chance of it happening again!!!!!!!!

I use the Bookmarks Bar extensively. But all the folders are the same color. I would find it much easier to find things quickly if I could change individual folder colors.

Any way to do this?

I'm already using Jscher's excellent UserChrome script to make the folders an attractive yellow, instead of gray. But can this be done for individual foders?

I want to set up a bunch of bookmarks in FF [84.0.1] and I cannot find out what the acceptable bookmark format is. [the bookmarks will come from someone else so I'd like to write a program to generate the appropriate import file]. I've tried edit an exported HTML file and then importing that [modified] file and it doesn't seem to work at all, so I'm clearly not understanding what has to be in the file so it'll work.

My plan/hope was to be able create a file with

<DL><P>
   <DT> FOLDERNAME 
   <DL> <P>
        <DT> <A HREF=URL> name for the bookmark</a>
       <DT> <A HREF=URL> name for trhe bookmakr</a>
               ...
    </DL>
</DL>

Is that even vaguely close to something that'll work?
