Hi guys, I did a fresh install of Firefox 98.0.2 yesterday. I saved my bookmarks.json file so I wouldn't need to configure anything. I had to turn Firefox sync off because I needed to remove some old extension and settings that I no longer needed and didn't want them on my new install.

I imported my bookmark json file but after I rebooted, all my folders are empty. The toolbar folders I had are empty too, the folders are there but empty.

It looks like all my bookmarks were placed under the "Bookmarks Menu" folder.

Does anyone know how to salvage this or am I doomed to manually sort hundreds of bookmarks?

Thank you.

Hi,

I have recently bookmarked from chrome successfully, or so I THOUGHT..... but for some reason when I try add a new bookmark to a folder I have used, the bookmark WON't SEND IT TO THAT FOLDER..... and then for some reason it'll save it when I go into the three bars - Bookmarks - and then appears there instead. I don't understand why the bookmark doesn't save into one of my folders? is there some kind of problem happened when the boomarks migrated from Chrome?

Usually dozens of times a day I click Ctrl-D to add a bookmark to a specific folder on the Bookmarks Toolbar. Previously, bookmarks were added by default to the top of the list of one folder (I'm not sure how I originally got it to do that) but in all other folders the bookmark would be added to the bottom of the list. How can I add bookmarks using Ctrl-D by default to the top of the list in EVERY folder? Or do I have to manually do this?  :-(

Have registered and tried to log in with an insurance provider. Usual stuff - email, then password. In Firefox it keeps opening new tabs repeatedly - forever if I let it. I have to close the browser to stop it!

Have tried to do the same thing via Microsoft Edge, and it works just fine, so I'm not stuck, but it does seem to be the browser. I usually, and would have, put this url into a container, but, as stated, it just keeps opening a new tab at the rate of about 1 a second!

Have tried opening other exisiting bookmarks in Firefox and they work just fine.

Have tried Settings/Privacy and Security/Clear Data Have tried CCleaner. Have tried restart.

Help!

I have tried shutting down Firefox and restarting after giving the delete command, but no dice. The bookmark seems immortal! Using Mac OS 10.13.6.

I have numerous folders in my Bookmarks list. When I access Bookmarks, Firefox automatically opens all of my folders and sub-folders, which means I have to scroll through all of them to find the bookmark I want. Is there any way to stop this behavior so that I only see a list of folders and can open only the one I want to access? Thanks.

Yesterday Firefox installed some updates. A while later I noticed that my bookmark icon to the left of the navigation box was missing, that some icons to the right of the navigation box(immediately to the right of the bookmark star) were missing, and that one line below, under the Other Bookmarks icon, there was only some of the bookmarks that used to be there. I tried following your suggestions with no luck? Any suggestions? Thanks.

(Windows-7/32 bit) I'm using the left sidebar to display my bookmarks. The last few FireFox updates have caused a problem (currently running 101.0.1 but have noticed the problem with previous versions). Unpredictably, when changing web pages, the bookmarks menu just rolls up for no apparent reason. Hitting CTRL-B/CTRL-B restores it, but it's also an annoyance, it does it several times a day. Why does it do that at all? Anyone have any ideas?

Hello, I have an extensive collection of bookmarks in bookmark folders. A few are a more important than others.

To me, the easy solution would be when I could colour a few folders - say blue or red.

I searched the web a bit and this is a quite hotly discussed topic. If solutions are offered, it's adding code etc. That's not for me and the results are dubious anyway.

Firefox has been around for a very long time. There are updates quite frequently. None ever feature colouring bookmark folders. Is that really so difficult? I realize this is not of vast importance, but it would be helpful to have a feature like that.

Is there a particular reason why this seems to be so difficult?

Hoping for a helpful answer.

Regards
