I put "bookmarks" for the subject but that's just because none of the other options adequately describes my situation! I just got a new MacBook Air. I hate Safari, so I always use Firefox instead as my main browser on Mac. Have been doing it for years. This time, I set up Firefox the way I wanted it, with a specific home page, logged into all my sites, emails, Facebook, youtube, etc etc, and set them all on my Toolmarks bar. ... Then a couple of days later, had to re-sign in to my computer due to downloading software, and lost everything I had done on Firefox! Had to re-sign into all my accounts again as well. Set everything up on Firefox again ... couple of days later, had to re-sign into my computer to due to downloading software ... lost everything I had set up on Firefox, had to re-sign into all my accounts. I would be so appreciative if anybody could tell me why this is happening and what I can do to fix it! I really love Firefox and don't want to give it up! Talked to Apple about it and they say it's not their issue. ... Thanks so much!!

Mac 10.15.7. FIREFOX 86. Groups of bookmarks are gone. This happens regularly. Bookmarks I rebuild yesterday, that group is gone today.

The bookmarks are "there" but not in their group.  Takes hours to re-sort.

It takes a LONG time to rebuild from HTML backup. The jsn backup is ok, but it wipes everything I have done today out. I backup almost every day.

I have thousands of bookmarks = hours of work. Then I have to spend many hours rebuilding. 1/ What is happening? 2/ How to stop it?

When syncing between devices, the location of bookmarks in subfolders is not remembered

I use Firefox on 3 devices: - a PC at home (Win 10, FF standard instalation), - an Android phone (Xiaomi Mi 9T) - a PC at work (Win7) with the Firefox portable version.

I have the latest, stable, up-to-date versions of Firefox on all my devices.

The problem is when I save a bookmark on one of the computers at work or at home, and then the devices synchronize. Bookmarks between computers do not remember their position in the bookmark folders and are saved in the main folder.

I have already performed all the steps based on the instructions in this article, but the problem persists. ([https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1270667])

Hello! I recently switched from google chrome to fox. Tell me, I ran into the problem that there are no extensions that I am used to seeing in my working environment in Google Chrome. I read that there used to be an extension that allowed you to install extensions from chrome. But now I couldn't find him. I need some extensions, without which I cannot arrange my full-fledged workflow. For example, one of these: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/simpleextmanager/kniehgiejgnnpgojkdhhjbgbllnfkfdk unfortunately I have not found analogues. Earlier, 10 years ago, the fox had much more extensions, now, unfortunately, it is not so ...

How can I solve my problem? Extensions switcher I really need other extensions.

Firefox bookmarks - default sort order for Tags and Search

Can anybody tell me what Firefox's default order is for sorting bookmarks when doing a search in the sidebar or when clicking on a 'Recent Tag' folder?

In both cases the bookmark results are listed in an order that I cannot determine (it's not by date, name, last visited, number of visits, date modified, date added etc.)

Is there some other means by which 'relevance' is being determined to affect the order in which bookmarks are listed in search results and tag folders?

I will often get very similar bookmarks listed at opposite ends of the results, or very frequently used sites buried at the bottom of the list with rarely used ones at the top.

Sure, with regards to tag folders I can just click one of the column headings to get a more logical and predictable sort order, but in sidebar search results there is no such option and you have to just put up with whatever random order Firefox chooses to display matching results.

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.

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.
