Hello,

I have many and long lists of bookmarks saved in the "Bookmarks Toolbar". The problem is that when I hover my mouse within the lists and sublists, the new rectangular form of a certain list (within another list) places over the old one in a way that I cannot distinguish the beginning/end of each one.

Can that be fixed or is there another theme that will help me see clearly the boundaries of each bookmark list/sublist?

Thank you!

I am using Firefox ver 102.01 64 bit on Win 10 laptop. In the bookmarks sidebar, the folders and individual links used to be integrated with each other in one alphabetical list. But, about 3 months ago, somehow the sidebar bookmarks bot separated from each other and now show only as two distinct groups: the folders all alphabetized separately appear at the head of the list, then the individual links are listed under the folders, alphabetized. Attached is a screen capture using SnagIt showing the sidebar as it is currently . Hopefully, someone knows how to revert to the previous bookmarks sidebar view where all bookmarks (folders and individual links) are integrated with each other alphabetically. Thank you for your help.

I have tried as suggested to delete bookmarks and then reinstall but I still get the same problem for some sites. I have actually tried installing them on MS Edge and they work but when I add them to Firefox it fails. I have used Firefox for about twenty years but this seems to be an ongoing problem. I even looked at doing this manually but that looked daunting. Included is a screen shot showing two that have not worked and have been tried several times.

Hello, My FF export to html backup stops half-way ! Here is the problem: Untill last June 2022 this backup was doing fine to reach the usual more than 65.000 mb. & gradually building up with every bookmark I add. But last month all that changed when the option started to stop half-way. Meaning it stopped at the level of more than 17.000 mb !!! Which is unbelievably LOW. Today Aug 3, 2022, I retried the operation on my usb stick. And FF export gave me the same results (with the little difference of the few bookmarks I added in the meantime). I didn't find any solution in the FF help pages to help me settle this problem. So any anything to fix this will be appreciated. I'm running windows 10 home & FF 103.0.1 (32 bit)

Firefox 103.0.1 is using apple-touch-icon for bookmarks rather than new favicon.svg

To support dark mode for desktop users, I’ve added SVG versions of my favicon.ico with lighter and darker colors and use @media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) to have better contrast against light and dark backgrounds.

Firefox now (as of 103.0.1) supports SVG favicons (there was a (bug)https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1772632, but it's now fixed), but for the History list and the Bookmarks, Firefox is using the apple-touch-icon.

Testing – To confirm how Firefox handles SVG favicons and bookmarks, I used a new profile:

  • Set Windows to dark mode
  • Create new Firefox profile and open a new browser window
  • Navigated to one of my (sites)https://www.sbwfc.co.kr/
  • Bookmarked the site
  • Switch to light mode and repeat the navigation and bookmark
  • In both cases, the bookmark is the same – it’s the apple-touch-icon (see attached portions of the screen capture and the apple-touch-icon.png).

Using the apple-touch-icon on the Bookmarks bar has multiple issues:

  • Most touch-icons have a solid background color while many favicons use transparency, resulting in the touch-icon not looking exactly like the favicon.
  • Most touch-icons include a border area around the edge while most favicons go right up to the edge. When the image is shrunk down to 16px (CSS type pixels), because of the border area, the area for the working image is only 12px square.
  • Shrinking a 180x180 pixel PNG image down to 16px (or 32px for high-resolution displays) does lose quite a bit of detail. Most SVG favicons are designed to work well at 16 and 32px.

For sites that only have an ICO favicon, Firefox will use that image for the bookmark and history. (Firefox also seems to continue to use the ICO favicon if a site was previously bookmarked.)

Safari only uses ICO favicons (not (SVG)https://caniuse.com/link-icon-svg), so designers do need to be sure their ICO designs work with light and dark backgrounds (Apple’s logo is a #888888 gray, so is visible against a light or dark background, although not ideal).

Chrome and Edge use SVG favicons for the tab, history, and bookmarks, and, if the user switches their configuration, the icons on the bookmark bar can be switched from light to dark or vis-versa by refreshing the page. (Chrome seems to always use the initial light or dark version when clicking into the address bar).

This is probably how Firefox is intended to work, but it does seem to be a less-than-desirable solution. If it’s too complicated to use the SVG favicon for the bookmark icon (the way Chromium based browsers do), then would it be possible to only use the ICO favicon for the tab icon and the bookmark (like Safari and Internet Explorer)? Repurposing the apple-touch-icon doesn’t seem like a good solution.

Note: I did try changing the order of the links, putting the apple-touch-icon first instead of last, but it didn’t make any difference.

The code for icons for my site is:

`<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico?v=2" sizes="any">` `<link rel="icon" href="favicon.svg?v=2" type="image/svg+xml">` `<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="sbf-apple-touch-icon.png">` `<link rel="manifest" href="manifest.json">`

Thanks

When creating a new bookmark, there is an arrow button named "Show all the bookmarks folders" that lets you choose the destination. I have managed to make the tree bigger and remove the huge thumbnail by modifying userChrome.css, but having the destination tree expanded by default would be so much more usable. The addon Default Bookmark Folder Default Bookmark Folder has a search feature but it's slower than just having the full tree from the beginning. Thank you for your help!

Tonight I performed a computer upgrade (on Ubuntu Studio) that included the latest Firefox version, and it has lost all of my bookmarks and my passwords and I guess lot of other stuff, too.

I can't find any way of restoring them. It will not even recognize the presence of the presence of the other browsers on my system, to import browsers from them.

I need help.

I can't even check my bank account, now.

I'm upset, and I think I have a right to be.

As stated in the topic title, I recently had to restart my POC to finish a BitDefender Installation, however, when signing back in, and launching Firefox, I found out my Bookmarks Toolbar was completely devoid of literally anything.

As is normally the case when something goes wrong, I did a search and found a topic from 2018 saying to restore the defaults in the Customize tab, which I did without issue. As it would turn out, though, this still didn't fix anything, and the bar came back every bit as blank as it was prior to this.

All the bookmarks are still registered, and in the same places I've put them, and I even tried bookmarking this page while setting it to go directly to the toolbar, rather than any of the subfolders I'd set, and as proven in the screenshots, nothing showed up.

I suspect that something may have corrupted, but I updated the browser days prior to this, so if anything was cut off before it could finish, it seemed likelier it would have happened then rather than now. As well, no red flags were brought back when doing a virus scan, so I'm at a total loss for what could have even happened, much less how to fix it.

Is this normal? Can we copy it directly to the linux folder instead of Firefox pasting it to the root.
