Why has Firefox started automatically adding bookmarks without asking me what to name them. In the past, when you clicked on “Bookmark This Page” a box popped up and asked you what you wanted to name the bookmark and where you wanted it to be saved. Now a little blue flag appears at top right corner of the screen and your bookmark has already been added. You then have to right click on the bookmark to edit it’s properties. Does anyone know how to change that back to the way it was ? Thank you so very much for your help on this.

HI I have just updated FF from a very old version to 77.0b8 (64-bit). My favourite bookmarks bar had coloured (like windows) folder icons, now they are black, bland and horrible. I have tried searching for an add on that changes the folder icon colours, but the search brings up far to many bookmark add ons not related. I have tried many different searches but can't get a result. Does anyone know of a mod/add on, or a way to change the Folder icons colour please? Many thanks for reading.

Before downloading/reloading Firefox on my computer last night, a left click on the Bookmark Menu icon (star within a tray; moved into header space from "Customize screen) would yield a listing of my bookmark folders along with bookmarks not placed in folders. Now, to get to the same place, I have to click the icon, then click Other Bookmarks. I had this issue some time ago, and recall the solution was rather simple....something like placing the "Other Bookmarks" in another location, but I can't recall the process....help!

Attempting to seach for a bookmark (in Firefox Library) causes "not responding" message, altho search is completed in 8 minutes. Help?

Hi...Every time I attempt to search for a bookmark by clicking "show your bookmarks" (or Ctrl/shift/b), then selecting "all bookmarks", then attempting to type something in the search box, it freezes...and just allows me to press enter, it then turns the "x" in the top right red, and gives a "Not responding" message next to Library(in the top left)..I can still click the red x to cancel the search.

I say attempting to do a search, as it only allows me to type up to 4 (is the most) letters in the search box...its often just one letter before it freezes, and the curser turns into a spinning blue circle....If i just leave it for around 8 minutes,(after pressing enter) it then lists my bookmarks with the search criteria I had used, and the "Not responding" message disappears....and the machine goes back to normal

I have tried removing all my addons and extensions, tried renaming my prefs.js file, but it still hangs and takes 8 minutes.

I havent as yet done a reinstall of Firefox without any of my personal data, or tried a refresh.

The laptop is an HP i7 16gb ram, Win 10 Pro 64bit 1909, Firefox 76.0.1...with all updates present.

Greetings.

I have been experiencing a problem saving bookmarks with favicons. I am able to save bookmarks but unable to save favicons with them. This only happens when the option "Remember browsing and download history" is OFF. Thus to save a bookmark with favicon I do need to ON the above option. Consequently if the option "Remember browsing and download history-Browsing & Download History" is ON then these favicons will be deleted when close Firefox.

A few examples of websites affecting are, https://www.alfaromeo.com.au/ https://flagfox.net/index.php https://www.qbittorrent.org/

It seems only some sites are affected and in my bookmarks they are 14 of them. I would like to know how to keep favicons permanently and make Firefox not to remember browsing and download history plus let it clean browsing & download history when Firefox closes.

Windows 10 18363.836/Firefox 76.0.1

Regards,

I have followed the methods suggested. Opened the page. Clicked on the STAR icon. Clicked on REMOVE BOOKMARK.

Unfortunately, the bookmark remains?

Opening up Bookmarks and highlighting the bookmark and right click produces a menu, including DELETE. When deleted the bookmark remains?

OS was recently updated from Win7Pro-64 to Win10Pro-64.

after system update on macbook pro (os 10.15.4) the firefox icon disappeared on the dock requiring me to sign in again with a change in password after which I discovered that all previous bookmarks were GONE! I do have the browser installed on a desktop which seems to have retained my old bookmarks. Any suggestions on retrieving previous bookmarks links and their associated login/passwords , or transferring my bookmarks from desktop to my macbook?

76.0.1 Firefox 10.13.6 Mac os

I ran Malwarebyetes and in restarting, it took a long time, after which ALL my bookmarks were gone. I cannot use the import/restore b/c while it shows the bookmark dates, when click to restore it says "unable to import the process file" on ANY dare.

    WHen I restart computer, a red banner said toolbar and bookmarks won't display.THis can be caused by security software, read more....bla bla!
  I have sync and that doesn't restore anything-bookmarks or toolbar!!!

I called Apple and they said it was b/c they wanted me to upgrad os system to Catalina, which I am not willling to do yet!!

I also have an external hard drive and iCloud/time machine backups, but I can't get those to be accepted into the Firefox sidebar and toolbar--they just show up as quick view documents!!

Why the heck is there no phone support?!?!? Help!?!!
