I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

Some of the bookmarks I have on the toolbar will open the web page automatically and some will not. For example, if I click one site it goes right to my summary page without logging in. If I click on another it goes to the log in page. The user name & password auto-fills but how can I get these sites to open automatically when from the short cut in the toolbar.

Could it be a Windows 10 issue? I didn't seem to have this problem with the old Edge browser but now I get the same thing in the new Edge, Chrome, and Firefox.

How can I change the font for FF bookmarks?

I need to use special characters in my bookmark entries (in the sidebar), for url entries and also, if possible, for the folders containing them. When I rightclick to get "Properties", there is no field "Font" or similar, so how/where would I change the font, and what default font is used there, to begin with?

My second question would then be how use another font for some entries, instead of the default one, or more precisely, how to combine two fonts within the same entry (bookmark or bookmark folder, if possible, too), in order to get, within the regular text of the entry, some special characters which are not included within the default font.

If such combination of two fonts for the same entry is not possible, I should at least know what the default font is, and where FF stores it, in order to put special characters from within another, special font into that default font.

Thank you!

With very vague help from your Support answers, I figured this out on my own and had to comment because all too many times your experts forget they are not always dealing with techs on answering these questions. For me this is what worked when I tried to alphabetize my bookmarks: Open LIbrary, show all Bookmarks (bottom of the list of bookmarks), click on Views and select Sort.

Hi, Since the latest update, I'm no longer able to see the most used bookmarked sites from my address bar. When I now click on the open space of the bar I get a dropdown of saved sites but not the most used ones like I used too. This has happened in a previous update too and because I cannot find a fix solution, I'm forced to make a post.

I've tried going into tools>options>home>privacy & security but ticking and unticking of boxes has been unsuccessful. Any help would be gratefully received.

After upgrading to Windows 10 or maybe Firefox 78.0.1 every time I navigate to a bookmarked page from the Bookmarks/Library window, that Library window continues to run in the background. I'd like to find a way to have this close automatically like it used to. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

A couple of months back, and entire bookmark folder suddenly disappeared. I assumed that I had inadvertently done something to cause this, though it had never happened before. Today, not only is another folder gone missing, several others have as well. I am using Windows 10 Pro, Version 1909, Build 18363.900. I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome for security issues, but unless I can figure out what is happening here, I am going to switch back. Any ideas?

Hi, When I turned on my computer this morning, my bookmarks were not there. I've tried the steps laid out by Firefox, but no success. I tried another browser, Safari, which I seldom use, and Safari bookmarks were still there. I have many different bookmarks in Firefox so I'd rather not switch over to Safari unless absolutely necessary. Nothing else is missing, so I doubt if I've been hacked. I did check a bank account, which was fine. I'm not a high profile person, so I doubt if I've been targeted. And I see the pic of the lock closed in the URL bar constantly. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I'm on Mac OS 10.15.5 (Catalina) Firefox 78.0.1 (64bit) Thanks, JJ
