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.

The backup files don't even exist. The html file is gone from the HD of the computer. Launched firefox the other day and the bookmarks were just gone. Everything was reset-homepage, add ons, etc. I have tried all of the recommended fixes listed in the lost bookmarks questions and none solve my issues.

Add a column to the bookmark library that indicates the folder where the bookmark is located. For example, in the screen shot (bookmark1), for the last bookmark, have a column that will show the location (NOT URL) of which folder(s) that bookmark is in. Based on the second screenshot (bookmark2), the folder is 'Home\Time Wasters\'. 'Home\Time Wasters\' would be in the 'Bookmark Folder' column, that would need to be added. See bookmark3.

I want to bookmark 10 selected history pages. I selected them, and right-click gives me the context menu as shown on the attached screen shot. But selecting "Bookmark Pages" does not work. Only individual pages selected this way will bookmark. And the option there "Open all in tabs" works fine, and I can then bookmark the 10 open tabs. But that wastes my time and bandwidth, and supposing I want to bookmark hundreds of history pages? Opening them all in tabs would break the machine.

Hello everyone!

I'm having a pretty weird problem here. Whenever I add a new site, it will show that grey globe instead of it's favicon on the bookmarks. If I go to my bookmarks and click on the recently added site, it will then load the favicon normaly, but that's the only way of "forcing" it to load.

Any idea of why this may be happening?

Fairly recently, I've noticed that Firefox will move sites automatically to a folder, fine and dandy, until it keep sending sites to the same folder despite me wanting to fill another folder. Example: browsing for computer components then looking for home improvement items, since the computer parts folder was used first, Firefox will continue to select the computer folder, when I select a different folder, in this case it's home improvement, I have about 2-3 seconds to hit save bookmark before it re selects the computer component folder, is this a feature? is there a way to disable it? or is there something else going on, any help is appreciated, it's frustrating

I've been using Firefox on my desktop, laptop and Android Mobile for months without issue. Recently i swapped to a new phone and for some reason the bookmarks on my desktop and laptop are getting jumbled/deleted (see attached pics)

To try solve this I exported my bookmarks to a .json file, then manually deleted all bookmarks on all my devices, ran a manual sync on all devices then completely uninstalled and deleted appdata/cache files.

I then re-installed using a fresh download from Mozilla, signed in and imported my bookmarks from the json file.

for a full day my bookmarks stayed intact, I then installed firefox on my phone and within an hour my desktop bookmarks became jumbled again.

Am I missing something here?

I can easily find a bookmark by searching in the Library "All bookmarks" window. However, I cannot figure out how to see folder that contains that bookmark. In Safari there an optional column for folder and you can then right-click and get an option to open the folder.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox?

Recently I have been having issues with my laptop. So, I decided to set my Windows 10 laptop back to factory settings. After the successful factory settings, I downloaded the latest version of Firefox and tried logging into my Firefox account. For some odd reason, it wouldn't recognize my login username and password. So, I tried to reset my password. After resetting my password, I managed to log into my Firefox account but all my bookmarks disappeared. I tried to restore but all I see is today's date and no other previous restore (see screenshot).

I am extremely exhausted trying to figure out a way to get back my bookmarks as it has many years of bookmarks that I need to use back.

I would appreciate any help on this matter.
