In Firefox Mozilla, for years I could view my bookmarks by going to: menu bar>bookmarks>[a drop-down window of my bookmarks would display]. That drop down even showed new folders or categories I had created in my bookmarks menu. That drop-down no-longer shows. (How) can I make it show again?

Hi gang. I created a second profile because I'd like to have different browser bookmarks for home and work use. However, my bookmarks are bleeding between profiles - when I change them in the "work" profile, those changes are applied in the "home" profile and vice versa.

Any idea what the issue might be here?

I don't know what to add to the above. I assumed that having logged on to my Firefox account on the old laptop and confirmed that Sync was active (which it was - bookmarks etc.) and then do the same on the new laptop I would see the same bookmarks appear on the new laptop. But they don't. What am I missing in that assumption and setup? Pls help! Thank you. Harold

I used to be able to type the first few letters of an address, either from my bookmarks, such as acrostics.org, or another URL, such as cnn,com, and the address would appear in the address bar. Now I have to drop down the menu and select the correct one. How can I go back to the way Firefox used to work?

Thanks.

Can anyone out there help me, I’ve exported my FireFox Bookmarks onto an external hard drive and then copied them back onto the desktop and from there tried to import them back into FireFox.

All the subfolders have imported back into FireFox no problem, but for some reason it has not done so with any bookmarks which appear under the Other Bookmarks listing, is there something I'm doing wrong? The version of FireFox I’m using is FireFox Quantum 6.9.0.3 (64 bit) with Windows 10.

I haven't been able to delete or add to my bookmarks in years! Despite upgrading my MacBook to the latest ios and updating Firefox to the latest version. I've lived with it until now and just haven't used bookmarks in ages, but I want to start using them again. I can't change any bookmarks, in the menu or the toolbar. None of the bookmark buttons or shortcuts work. How can I fix this?

Hi. I just added a new bookmark subfolder, and want to move it up to a new position within it's folder. When I try to drag and drop it in the Bookmark Sidebar (as you can do in Google Chrome), it won't move. Is it possible to organize bookmark folders by moving them in Firefox, and if so, how can it be done?

I am personally studying the subject of "Neuroplasticity" for my own further education? I had a quite serious accident in 2012, which unfortunately left me with "slight" brain damage? I use the word slight to describe it, as that was the word "experts" used? How tragically mistaken they were in using that word? hahaha !!!! Anyway, some specific parts of my brain made me a physical cripple? By strength of will & great physical effort I was able to turn the clock back in my mind to an earlier era in my life? About 20 or 30 years? Although I was 65+ when I left hospital, visits to a friend in The Philippines, & great deal of help patience & effort from her enabled me to get my mind & body back to the level of fitness that I thought I had immediately before the accident? Which I perceived or imagined was approximately age 45 to 50? Anyway, more on this subject for anybody who has sufficient interest to write & enquire? All that I need to know now is how to create a bookmark or file containing only "NEUROPLASTCITY" items or website links?

When I was organizing several bookmarks in my Bookmark Folder entitled "Main Dishes" (as I remember), I believe I double clicked or similar and lost the total folder which contains between 100 & 200 bookmarks! I have not turned off my computer. The closest topic I could find has to do with "Smart Bookmark Folders" which does not seam to apply. If my brain is correct on this, I thought I saw right below the Smart Bookmark folder the appropriate topic regarding bringing back a bookmark folder, but somehow that topic has seemed to disappear. This folder's information has been gathered over a period of 2 to 3 years. I would be so grateful if you could help me. Thank You....Charles Perryman PS...I AM SO SORRY...SOMEHOW THE FOLDER HAS NOW REAPPEARED IN MY LIST OF FOLDERS!!!! I AM SORRY TO TAKE YOUR TIME ON THIS....I AM VERY HAPPY, BUT VERY DUMBFOUNDED!!!!
