FF85.1 I have a huge set of bookmarks. Use the sidebar all the time. Sections of bookmarks disappear. Usually happens when/after a day of inserting new marks...but maybe not in the section that goes away. For instance, today my section called MOTORCYCLES is gone. It was there yesterday. This section covers many different sub-categorizes. Now it seems my only option is to RESTORE from backup- which destroys all back to that back up. Or, drag one at a time from HTML backup...WAY TO SLOW for a large directory. I back up everyday so I don't loose too much, but this section is huge.

1. What am I doing to delete sections? 2. Is there a way to drag HTML sections back in? I seem to only be able to drag in one at a time. This has gone on TOO long. There has to be a better solution.

Hi. Sorry FF folks, but bookmark management in the new ff is still a disaster.

Bookmark management failures to be corrected asap: 1. it does not properly delete and create new bookmarks 2. you cannot search by folder name, only bookmark name 3. there is no feature 'show in folder' like the old extension 'go parent folder' (which is key to any proper bookmark management)

4. many more intelligent features are missing, but start with the above and you get am actually useful browser (many still use the old ff for bookmark management, since nothing compares)

5. make bookmarks, cookies, history and any user customizations or content completely inaccessible by any site as it is horrible to learn that sites could read all those and much more for many years (who ever had such a bad, evil and abusive idea)

Please stop any ignorance/superficiality, as they are not solutions, but problems! The old ff was great, the new ff is...well, not new anymore...so it really needs the above done/fixed.

Thx!

My computer blue-screened and when I got it back up and running, I got the "Profile cannot be loaded" message and Firefox wouldn't show up. I didn't think to look into the %AppData% and figured a uninstall/reinstall would fix it just fine. But now that it's reinstalled everything from bookmarks to extensions are all gone. I had few important things up that I was working on. Is there anyway to get it all back?

I have purchased a new pc. I used Firefox as my principle browser on my previous pc. In transferring data from my previous pc to this new pc none of my firefox favorites were transferred. I asked for help from microsoft and the technician tried to help. He asked for my firefox account password. I do not recall having one. His belief was that unless I had an account with Firefox I would not be able to restore those previously save bookmarks. Please advise as to whether that conclusion is correct.

Add-on to rename bookmarks with a prefix of it's Upload Date? (NOT the added-to-BM date).

I'm looking to sort a group of bookmarks so I can view them in the order they were uploaded. NOT the order that they were added to my own Bookmarks. Right now, I have to go to each page, use Add-To-Bookmarks cntl-D, and manually edit the BMs name by adding a date prefix I read from that page. IE: "2021-02-12 - {original BM's name}" that way when I do an alpha sort, it also is listed by Upload Date.

Thanks for any add-on or functionality suggestions!

Hello! I have a question - with possible need for solution. When I create shortcuts for my most often used sites in "Top Sites" section, I want them pinned, arranged in my preferred order and displayed with big, clean, "favicon" image. BUT it doesn't always behave that way: 1) Some pages get this nice big website icon - you know: big "f" for FB or big red YouTube "Play" button. 2) While some get this annoying miniature "screenshot" with small logo in lower-right corner.

I managed to get rid of those mini-screenshots with "browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled" custom setting but small, lower-right icon problem remained.

The annoying part is that those icons exist and are seen by firefox, just can't make them fill all thumbnail space.

How can I handle it?

Thank You!

I use the Bookmarks Toolbar for all of my desktop bookmarks. I frequently create new bookmarks or refile bookmarks by dragging them and dropping them into the appropriate subfolder in the toolbar. While navigating through multiple layers of bookmark subfolders, I often accidentally slide the new bookmark a few pixels above or to the side of the submenu, briefly hovering over the browser window surrounding the expanded menus. After a fraction of a second, all of the submenus collapse and I have to start over.

Is there any ui tweak available to insert a delay into this submenu collapse? I have already tried changing ui.submenuDelay and ui.click_hold_context_menus.delay, but neither of those had any effect on this issue.

Hello, all:

I thought I could try reaching out to see about why Firefox somehow reset itself or something earlier tonight then I lost some recent bookmarks with the bookmarks I had in the bookmarks bar so I had to set it up again and am not too sure of whether it'll happen again which I hope won't. Is there a simpler way or something so I can be sure to keep the bookmarks I have since I have quite a number of them? Hope this information helps you figure out the issue I had earlier and how to not have it happen again at some point which I hope won't be the case. Thank you in advance if you reply to this post.

Hello,

Recently I observed following behavior:

  1. Ctrl+L to select addres bar.
  2. "* " to trigger bookmark shortcuts.
  3. I type few letters of my query.
  4. The seeked bookmark is shown second on the list. The first results is a nonbookmarked history item.

See attached image for an example.

The issue is this: Why on earth would I bother with the "* " prefix if I wanted a non-bookmark result?

This seems be a recent change. Can this be disabled somehow? Thanks!
