Good day,

I need to import my bookmarks from a hard drive that was in my previous computer that died. I have the hard drive connected to my new pc via a docking station. Is there anyway to pull that information from the old drive since it's not the actual boot drive?

Thank in advance for your assistance.

I am logged into my Google account which is associated with Feedly. The first time I downloaded it, I saw the icon. When I closed Firefox and reopened, it disappeared. I have since upgraded to version 17 and reset Firefox. When I initially installed the Feedly addon again, the icon showed up. After closing FF and reopening - it has again disappeared and I cannot find it in the options for the AddOn bar. Please help - I am looking for a way to remember to check my RSS feeds and this seems perfect!!

MacBook Pro OS10.8.2 When I go to a page that offers an RSS feed, I can't use the button to set it up in Firefox. I use Mail for e-mail. I rarely use Safari. Firefox is my default browser. I checked the Preferences for Firefox, Mail, Safari, and the System Preferences. I don't see anything about RSS feeds. But it seems to me that it must be a preference set somewhere that makes the Firefox RSS button fail.

After reinstalling my system (Win 7 x64) and downloading the latest Nightly build of Firefox, logging in to Sync and syncing my bookmarks, I discovered that the icons are missing (white square with gray outline). After visiting a web page, the icon is set back to normal. The problem is, that I have lots of bookmarks, and it would take an enormous amount of time to visit every page. And on the second hand, with icons its easier to access bookmarks.

At least one old address still shows in inline autocomplete, despite deleting all bookmarks, history, etc. tickboxes for "Everything" dates. It doesn't show in the dropdown addresses either. I would still like to use autocomplete from history and bookmarks from now on, I'd just like to "flush" all old addresses. I've disabled all addons. I do still find the address in some of the support files, i.e., cache.js, cookies.sqlite, places.sqlite, sessionstore.js. Are thosefiles not cleaned by deleting bookmarks/history/etc. ? TY

I am using the bookmark toolbar and have single bookmarks as well as bookmark folders for grouped bookmarks.

I am trying to sort the bookmarks in the toolbar but it is not working. I can highlight the group of bookmarks and drag them to the spot I want. I even see the Firefox selector showing where the bookmark group will be "dropped" yet when I get to the spot I want and let go of the mouse, the bookmark doesn't drop there.

Using the latest release version of Firefox on a PC.

I seem to have a bug in Firefox and don't know what to do about it. Whenever I try to save a bookmark or even look at my list of bookmarks in the manager, they all instantly delete. Trying to restore them does nothing--the list of backups is there, but choosing any backup does nothing. Note that even with wifi disconnected, it still happens, so it's not a sync issue, although my other copies of Firefox on other devices, due to this bug, have synced the empty bookmarks and are now useless from the first time it happened. The only way to restore my bookmarks is to use a backup of my Profiles folder.

Here's a screencast showing what happens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDh7Ef3nQPQ

The same thing happens when I try to bookmark a page. The same thing happens when I do nothing and have sync enabled--as soon as something considers editing my bookmarks, they disapear. Note that I can choose bookmarks from the menu or bar no problem, and history is preserved when bookmarks disappear.

I tried running a cleaner on my Places file. That had no effect.

Reformatted & added Win 7 to #2 PC. I imported "my Favorites" from internet explorer by FF browser, bookmarks > Import & Backup.

The favorites from i.e. were mostly held in 20 folders with sub folders then the rest, loose individual sites.

The entire list - folders & loose sites now appear in the Private folder config: START > AaLF personal folder > Favorites. (This is good)

But in the firefox browser, I now see only half the folders from i.e. and also not the loose individual sites.

      • The entire list has appeared in > Personal folder > My Favorites (Win7)

Question: How do i get My Personal Folder Favorites into FF's Bookmarks for easy use??
