I'm having trouble cleaning out bookmarks in Firefox. I use the iCloud Bookmarks add-on, so that I can sync bookmarks between Firefox on my Windows computer and Safari on my iPhone. I'm sure part of the problem (or the entire problem) is that I have too many bookmarks. I'm trying to clean them out and delete ones I don't need, but they keep coming back. I've tried deleting them in Firefox and in Safari. I'm not using Firefox sync. I've been looking for the answer but can't find it.

I have noticed that many bookmarks that I save will not appear where I saved them. I initially thought they were being deleted, but after searching for them I noticed they were in different locations/folders to where I saved them. The locations I find them in are different, although a batch of bookmarks appear together I think if they were saved at a similar time and to the same folder.

I'm trying to sort my bookmarks. Is it possible to have two library windows open simultaneously--one showing tags and the other open to a particular bookmarks folder? if so, can I either drag from one window to the other or change the bookmark's folder to a new one? Thanks.

Whenever I open a new window, the Bookmark Sidebar is displayed. I've tried going through Menu, Customize Toobar to remove the icon from the menu bar. That part works. But then the next time I open a window, there's the sidebar. When I went back into Menu, Customize Toobar, the icon wasn't there, so I restored the previous session to bring it back in order to try something else. Nothing worked.

Obviously, the problem isn't with the toolbar, but with a Window setting, but where is THAT information stored? It ain't under Options. It's either so obvious or so obtuse, I'm missing it. Thanks in advance.

I made a backup of my current bookmarks as a .json file and then restored an earlier bookmark backup. When I did, all of the bookmarks ended up in the root and all of the folders I made to organize my bookmarks were empty. I didn't really care because I found the bookmark that I was looking for and then restored the new backup that I had made prior to restoring the older one.

Same thing happened, all of my bookmarks ended up in the root and all of my folders were empty again. That's way too much work to have to put them all back in the folders manually and surely it's not designed to work that way.

I did a system restore from several days earlier and that didn't fix it either. I also tried restoring an automatic bookmark, several of them, that didn't work either.

I have the latest version of Firefox installed and it was before I started any of this. I can't find the version number because "About Firefox" only says "Firefox is up to date" under Firefox Browser. Your software below has identified it as version 87.0. Running Windows 8.1.

This is really aggravating, I haven't got time for this crap.

I'm glad there are loads of you who understand the finer point of browsers, in this case Firefox. I'm not one of you though. Please is there a version of Firefox browser that is simple to use and uncomplicated in construction. I seem to spend a lot of precious time finding my way out of dead ends when all I want to do is maintain a simple list of bookmarks.

Please bring back the ability to add notes below each bookmark.

I asked this question in previous years, but now ESR has become incompatible with too many applications. I'm using Firefox 60.9.0 ESR with the bookmark notes feature for web site security prompts but:

  • Most banks do not support release 60 ESR
  • The Honey pricing app stays blank with ESR
  • Camel Camel Camel does not work with ESR

I now have to use Microsoft Edge to for these connections and then go back to Mozilla if I get asked a specific security question. There has to be a way to stay with Firefox, but the market is forcing me back to Microsoft Edge.

Please bring back the Firefox bookmark Notes field.

Same favicons for different web services running on one host

If there are several applications with their own web interface (web server on different ports) on a host (same IP address), the same favicon is always displayed in the bookmarks for all applications.

Example: On one computer there are several applications with their own web interfaces such as home automation, media server, network management, etc. The applications are addressed via different ports (https://mydomain.com:xxx). The correct associated favicons are always displayed in the corresponding browser tabs.

But when bookmarks are created for these applications, they all get the same favicon.

I can't see any regularity which favicon is chosen. At first I thought it was always the favicon of the application running on port 80. However, I have also managed other favicons depending on the order in which I created the bookmarks. But in the end all bookmarks always have the same favicon, because the favicons also change later after the bookmark originally had the right favicon :-(

Вечером же, я как обычно запустил браузер, при этом всплыло маленькое окно, что там было точно-не помню. Когда запустился браузер, я обнаружил, что все вкладки, закладки и история исчезли вообще. Караул!!!! Практически всё связано с работой. Помогите добрые люди, как всё вернуть обратно? Не судите строго, но я откровенно слаб в компьютерных познаниях...

Firefox updated itself two days ago and now 'Bookmark this page' is no longer listed in the Bookmarks drop down menu. I want it replaced. Just as it was. LIKE THIS: Click on Bookmarks, select 'Bookmark this page' or Edit this bookmark' , select 'Done'. Then I am finished with that particular bookmark. I know all about the "bookmark star" procedure - not interested. The question is simply how to put 'Bookmark this page' BACK WHERE IT WAS? In the 'Bookmarks' drop down menu. Nothing else, just this one thing. I have read too many post with out seeing a solution to this exact question that I and others are asking. Thanks for anyone's help

I have been a fan of the awesomebar for quite some time; tab selection using % enables progress after chaotic web surfing and bookmark searching using * circumvents the need of retracing already known websites. (I have removed suggestions and history though, I find that those are mostly in the way.)

One limitation for me as a programmer is that while searching for Python helps me find the correct bookmarks, including C in a search is not helpful, as a c anywhere in a bookmark will give a hit. This even goes for '.com'! The same problem occurs when searching for bookmarks in the bookmark library.

My suggested improvement would be to allow search terms to be interpreted narrowly. This could be done by adding quotes, for example "C" (single quotes could also work).

Is this already possible in some way? And if not, where would be the best place to suggest the improvement? [feedback page reads "Please check back soon"] ( and I'm not sure whether this suits the Bugzilla platform.

Soo... here is the deal. I was just using the browser when one day my profile that I browsed in just got deleted. Well... not really deleted but secured by a password I did not know. So I amde a new profile and manually moved all my files. That was about 2 months ago. Yesterday I have found out that for some reason most of my history got deleted (In spite of me moving my previous browser history and bookmark files from the other profile) and most of my bookmarks got deleted along with it. Is there anything I can do to get back my browsing history? I got some important stuff there and it would be a shame to lose it.

For all past years, when I save bookmarks, they go to the bottom of my drop down icon. Then I double-click-drag to where I want them in my drop down list. In the past week or so, I can no longer do this. It seems Facebook now forces us to open the bookmarks window???? That's a whole lot of extra steps! In over a decade of Firefox I've maybe opened the bookmarks window a 10 times!

Bring back the ability to move bookmarks in one-quick-step. Why must all firefox "upgrades" make using firefox slower :(

Hi

I got multiple PCs, whereas one is my work laptop. On it I have PDF documents local on my hard drive, and because I use them quite frequently I discovered you can create bookmarks to local files and pinned them on my "New Page", page (see attached image).

The annoying thing about it though is that it syncs that bookmark to my other PCs which leads to nowhere on them. Is there a way to exclude certain bookmarks from Sync? I tried searching for something like that but couldn't find anything.
