Whenever I close and reopen Firefox now, my bookmarks do not come through and I can't restore the tabs that were open. Is this because Firefox now requires you to sign in? (I really don't want to do that.)

For well over a year, I have had this problem: Many times when I selected a bookmark, nothing happens. It does not go to the bookmarked site. I have tried the following things: 1. Start FF in safe mode. 2. changed OS from Windows 7 to Windows 10. 3. Made sure my OS and browser were up to date. 4. Tried different Antivirus programs.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you so much!

I can't get Firefox to show the bookmark editor. I thought i may have accidentally manually disabled it for new bookmarks, but when i tried to access it on an existing bookmark, it wouldn't come up. The star button still has an "Edit this bookmark (Ctrl+D)" tooltip, but does nothing when clicked. Ctrl+D does nothing further on an existing bookmark. I went into about:config, and the browser.bookmarks.editDialog.showForNewBookmarks option was set to true. I went ahead and toggled it off and on again to see if it would refresh or something, to no effect. Ultimately, i guess that's beside the point, as i can't even bring it up for existing bookmarks.Any suggestions, beside going in and manually shuffling each new bookmark into a folder from the library?

I need to update Firefox on my Laptop but when I updated it on my PC I lost all my Bookmarks and I can't do that. I am using Windows 10. It should be built in the programs that when you update your Bookmarks are automatically moved.

I reinstalled Win10, clean install. Reinstalled Firefox, v88 and imported my bookmarks (.json). Took a while (36.4Mo) but they got imported and I got to sort the latest bookmarks them into folders and tags while I transferred files from a hard drive. Trimmed them to 31 Mo and saved a backup. Exited firefox. Later I launch firefox to install addons and notice all my latest bookmarks have vanished. All my tags are gone too.

When I check to restore my backup, I have the choice between - today's automated backup (11 Mo; 110.000 items) 100.000 items, that is, half of my bookmarks. - ... or my manual save I did. Restoring my manual save returns the bookmarks and tags. But they disappear when I exit firefox. Sitting for half a hour for my bookmarks to load each time I launch firefox is not a solution. I estimate there's 70k to 100k links and 1k tags missing.

I have one only profile. Fresh, latest FF, no addons. No clue too.

If I open a page and immediately click one of my Bookmark Bar shortcuts to a different page, the current page reloads instead. Some pages take a second or longer to load, and I don't want to wait to click a different shortcut. I can also click the X to stop the current page loading and then other shortcuts work fine. It's when the current page is still loading which ANY other bookmark is clicked that Firefox merely reloads the page that I'm already on. This is really annoying. It will do it continuously if I keep clicking on any shortcut when the page loads. The same page, the original page. Forever.
