Issue: the bookmark toolbar arrow (the one that shows bookmarks that don't fit on the toolbar) is gone from my browser, and the toolbar itself seems truncated (only like 7/8 of the toolbar is filled).

I didn't change any settings or installed any add-ons that could have to do with this. It just disappeared one day, I didn't even notice it at first.

What I tried:

  • I launched Firefox in safe mode, didn't fix it
  • I removed my userChrome.css file, didn't fix it
  • when I cut the bookmarks and paste them into the toolbar, the arrow shows, but when I relaunch the browser it is gone again

See photo for what it looks like (ignore the anonymous favicons, I changed them temporarily with userChrome to preserve privacy, but without userChrome the issue still stands).

Anyone has an idea what happened and how to fix this? Thanks.

All of a sudden pressing Ctrl-Shift-B no longer opens my Bookmarks window (Library), but instead closes my bookmarks toolbar!

Is there a way to revert this shortcut back to what it's been for the longest time?

I know the "new" combination is Ctrl-Shift-O but I've used the old one so often (maybe 50 times a day), that this change is nerve-racking.

Thanks.

I know how to bookmark a page- what I want to know is how to restore the bookmark star in the address bar (I accidentally removed it). I KNOW that you can bookmark a page by clicking the 3 dots at the end of the address bar and using the drop down menu, etc, or key commands.

BUT- I want to RESTORE the star that easily and quickly allowed you to bookmark a page. All other answers to this same question seem to only tell people alternate ways to bookmark a page. I don't need that. I need to know how to restore bookmark star to address bar. Thanks! my firefox ver is 84.0.1 64bit

When I started firefox today, there was a new folder added to my bookmarks toolbar - "Other Bookmarks". It was never there before and I want to remove it. In the bookmarks menu itself I have the "Bookmarks Toolbar" where I put the stuff I want to access often, and "Other Bookmarks" where I put other stuff I don't need as much. I don't see a reason why the "Other Bookmarks" should take up space on the bar.

Hi community,

Somehow the Other Bookmarks folder showed up at the end of my bookmarks bar. I am pretty sure it was not there yesterday. I assume that somehow I accidentally placed it there.

The problem is that I can't either move it, or remove it from there. When you select it, delete option is grey and not available. Does anyone now exactly how to remove it from the bookmarks bar?

Thank you people... :)

In the most recent update notes, it's said that Firefox "now remembers your preferred location" for bookmarks. However, the location chosen now as my preferred is just some random folder. Is there a way to set the preferred location? Or at least set the browser to do what it did before, which is save to the last-used folder? Thanks!

Each successive bookmark I now save has a prepended number in parentheses, [ (21) ]. The number increases by the day.

If I, "restart Firefox with Add-ons disabled," I still get prepended numbers on my bookmarks.

Can I turn this off? What was the reasoning behind such a number?

If I save a second bookmark of the same url in the same day, I get the same number. In fact, any bookmarks saved in a particular day will have the same number. Rewinding the clock, day one would have been Sunday, Jan 17th.

Example: MariaDB Tutorial For Beginners in One Hour (a YouTube video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AMj02sANpI Saves as, (21) MariaDB Tutorial For Beginners in One Hour - YouTube

The offer to speed up my Firefox should have included the info that in doing so, my bookmarks would all disappear. If anyone knows how to get them back, I'd appreciate the info. I'm disappointed in Firefox - unexpected outcomes should not be part of an update. While in theory I like the Firefox system better than Chrome, I have to go back to Chrome to protect myself from further "surprises".

I have version 85.0.1 (64 bit) on Win 10. I just created Bookmark folders and started moving individual bookmarks into the appropriate folders. How do I select multiple bookmarks so I can move a bunch at a time to it's folder? I tried CTL-CLICK but that doesn't select but rather opens the link. When I open "Show all Bookmarks it lists only the bookmark folders (which I can open and do multiple selection). But why aren't the bookmarks not in folders showing up? I can see them in to bookmark toolbar and in the >> sidebar. Have hundreds of bookmarks I collected- want to move some want to delete some. Selecting multiple for drag and drop would make my project go unbelievably faster.

How to export bookmarks from Firefox when Firefox won't load?

Hello. I have a (presumably) broken install of Firefox that never loads and I plan to totally uninstall Firefox (I have the beta version and I plan to get the normal version, unless you guys have a better solution to try), but first I just need to salvage my carefully curated bookmarks from this install before I nuke it (uninstall, do a clean-up, and reinstall a totally different version). Since normally once has to open the browser and enter settings (or bookmarks perhaps, I forget the exact process off the top of my head and clearly can't go look) to export bookmarks, I'm at a loss of how to accomplish this task. I've included a screenshot of what Firefox does when I open it. No amount of waiting does any good, this is all it does, and this is all it has done for over a year, despite numerous updates. Clearly the install is corrupted and I need to start fresh, but I need those bookmarks if at all possible. Is it possible? I've just switched to Chrome for the past year hoping it would eventually work itself out with an update, but that was clearly wishful thinking. I actually hate Chrome and would really like to get back to using Firefox, but I've let this linger for a year because I really do not want to lose those bookmarks and doing nothing and having a case of Schrodinger's bookmarks is somewhat better than having bookmarks that are gone forever.

Hi - I signed out of a different Firefox account and can't get back in, as the password I have isn't correct. If I change my password, I may lose my bookmarks, etc. I exported the bookmarks to html and also backed them up (json). If I change my password, will I be able to restore the bookmarks using one of those backups? I backed up "all bookmarks." Does that include the bookmarks toolbar and mobile bookmarks as well as the bookmarks menu and other bookmarks? Thank you in advance!
