The article explaining a particular add-on seems to say a Firefox add-on will chose what file to put a new bookmark in, and/or rearrange bookmarks. This seems to say that rather than allowing you to make a choice. It will even rearrange the current folders or content. Am I misinterpreting? Thanks!

For example, https://whatismyipaddress.com/

https://www.quora.com/

https://mail.protonmail.com/

The site's icons display normally on chrome and edge, but not on Firefox, either by readding the bookmark or reloading Firefox

I just installed FF v96.0.0 and immediately noted that the background is back to being black or dark themed again for this HORRIBLE PROTON UI.... I have been using Firefox since v2 or was it v4 so long time...

Mozilla I am tired of these terrible UI changes you keep making and it needs to stop... please at least add some user config options so we can at least disable the ugly proton UI features..! as the about:config proton UI options don't work right... anymore..

Please help me find and restore my missing bookmarks. There are hundreds of entries needed to access essential sites to pay bills, contact physicians, and much, much more. I am embarrassed to admit that there are also some adult oriented bookmarks that remind this old man about his younger life. Thank you for your understanding and help.

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

How do I disable "recent bookmarks" when I go to the bookmarks.

Also How do I get bookmarks to appear as they did prior to the update. It used to be 1 button on the right side of the address bar would open a menu that had all of my bookmarks and book folders. Now theres an option button, where when I select "bookmarks" and then "bookmark current tabs", "search bookmarks", and "hide bookmarks toolbar" as well the dreaded "recent bookmarks" that show a random selection of among all of my bookmarks from random folders.

If I want a remembrance of how my bookmarks used to be, I have to make sure the menu bar is visible and select bookmarks from there.

I am using Firefox 96.0 running on Ubuntu 20.04. The procedure described on this site to create a desktop shortcut for a website (click on padlock, drag it to the desktop and release) does not work. A grayed image of the URL being dragged moves onto the desktop when dragged, but when the mouse button is released that grayed image springs back to the URL field.

I also tried the alternate procedure i.e. drag a shortcut from the Bookmarks menu onto the desktop. The same failure sequence as described above occurred.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Mike
