1) where is all of your Firefox backups located? 2) i just had some random places.sqlite file corruption and did i therefore lose all of my bookmarks also somehow after renaming the corrupt 'places' file? 3) does it not even backup all of the bookmarks either if it cant read/write the 'places' file normally for some time? 4) how is this kind of stuff even possible with Firefox when everything else works completely fine and normal? 5) is the .jsonlz4 file compressed to a smaller size than html somehow?

I bookmark a page that is not on https, but regardless of how I edit this bookmark, firefox always automatically adds https, therefore killing the bookmark as this link isn't on https. How can I edit a bookmark such that firefox actually gets the message?

Thanks

I am aware that Firefox has three options for bookmarks: Always Show, Only Show on New Tab, and Never Show.

Either through a setting, an extension, or magic... I want the new tabs to always show the bookmarks BUT I want the other tabs to allow me to toggle showing and hiding the bookmarks (without affecting the new tab at all). How can I achieve this? Is there a deep setting I am missing?

Are there workarounds too? I would settle for a homepage that showed bookmarks (right now I have the option to toggle 'shortcuts', I wish I could also toggle bookmarks there). I'd even settle for an AHK script to force show the bookmarks on new tab (if hidden).

Any help is appreciated!

I'm unable to save bookmarks in most of my folders. I can occasionally get a bookmark saved in one folder, but it will disappear and many folders no matter what I try no bookmark can be saved. I also am unable to export new bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox.

I've tried everything on the 'Can't add, change or save bookmarks - How to fix' page and nothing has worked and it has been incredibly frustrating and I'm not sure where to go from here. Please advise.

I just had a Mozilla/Firefox update. After it was done, Firefox opened. So far so good..... When it opened, the very first thing I noticed is that my bookmarks button was not on my toolbar. The second thing I noticed is that all my bookmarks are gone. GONE!! I use and count on these bookmarks daily, and not they are nowhere to be found.

WHY? This is not the first time that Firefox has had an update and has changed my settings and lost things. Updating is one thing, but there is no reason why Firefox should be changing settings - and now, in this case, wiped my bookmarks clean.

Any help? I'm frustrated and angered that years of bookmarks are gone...... Can anyone help me? Thank you.

Hail all:

Now, Firefox has a very, VERY simple Bookmark Manager, that basically only allows to add, remove, and single-bookmark edit.

Now, I have for instance 6+K Youtube Links, which all, annoyingly, end with " - YouTube". I want to remove that idiocy, but to edit 6+K bookmarks, one by one?

Can you add a way to mass-edit bookmarks?

Also, can you add a "Explorer Tree Style" Bookmark manager, that shows all bookmarks in true Explorer style (As in:

All Bookmarks
--- Bookmarks Toolbar
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
------------- ...
-------- Folder 2
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...
--- Bookmarks Menu
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
-------------  ...
-------- Folder 2
------------ SubFolder 1
-----------------Bookmark 1
-----------------Bookmark 2
-----------------  ...
------------ SubFolder 2
-----------------Bookmark 1
-----------------Bookmark 2
-----------------  ...
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...
--- Other Bookmarks
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
-------------  ...
-------- Folder 2
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...

(without the "-" 's of course, this was my way to represent the folder and "bookmark file" system in tree form), with an option to see doubles in their respective folder/subfolder, with the normal editing functions? Since ... that would ultimately be darn helpful? Especially when implemented DIRECTLY into Firefox, so no additional tools are needed (add-ons) since these never have what I actually need.

I have a 700+ Bookmarks backup file, which says all. Far too many bookmarks to sift through, manually, without decent tools, thus the need to do it "one at a time".

Thank you very much.

Xog.

I wanted to add a bookmark and found that the commands for Manage Bookmarks, Bookmark Current Tab, and Bookmark All Tabs were all grayed out. I searched help topics and tried everything I could find:

• I deleted the old xulstore.json file. • I used the Firefox refresh feature. • I found Places Database and tried Verify Integrity. It reported that both databases are sane (I'm attaching a screenshot of the results). • I restarted the computer. • I quit Firefox and got info on the places.sqlite file. It is not locked.

Nothing so far has worked. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Methods to copy a single bookmark to multiple Firefox users

Hi,

We use a cloud-based ERP system. To access it, we use a bookmark for users to get to the initial login screen in Firefox. There has been a change in the login screen that will require us to use a different URL. We have about 75 PCs with many having multiple user profiles for Firefox that need the new URL.

I know how to quickly copy and paste the bookmark by remoting into a PC and then doing a copy/paste from the bookmarks toolbar on my PC to the bookmark toolbar on the remote PC.

I could also create a procedure for users to create their own bookmark but I think some users would find that a challenge.

I'd like to make this process more of a silent install but haven't figured out how to manage it.

We're currently all Windows 10 Pro using Firefox v101.0.1 64-bit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.
