Despite i selected "always show" in the options of the menu toolbar, as indicated in many answers and guides, Mozilla keeps randomly to show or not to show (most of the times) my bookmarks in the top bar. The bookmarks are still there if i press on top on bookmarks in fact they appear, simply they are not anymore in the bar. I have reset several times to default from the options but it doesnt change anything. Any clue? Thank you

Hi, Why do we have double spaced bookmarks forced on us ?. It is an unnecessary nuisance having to now scroll down, with absolutely no advantage. Why o why is it that when the 'developers' ? are let loose the result is always less user friendly. I have only opened an account to let mozilla know that despite being with them for ever, unless you can tell me a simple and permanent fix, i will be changing to another browser. Thank you, David Bloom

I am a longtime user of Firefox. When I started with it, I was under the (apparently false) belief that the main bookmarks folder was "other bookmarks". Consequently, all of my important bookmarks are contained in this folder. I just bought a new computer from Dell, and I find that I can not import the Other Bookmarks folder into the new computer. What I would like to do is delete the contents of the Bookmarks folder, then transfer the contents of the Other Bookmarks folder into this. I know I can do this one by one, but it will take a LONG time. Is there any way to do this in bulk? Thanks.

What have you done, Firefox? Where are my bookmarks? None of the help articles have helped me find them. No "Bookmarks Library" link, no bookmarks button on main page, no "Refresh" option anywhere that I can find....

Opened Firefox this morning around 11 a.m., opened up Firefox. A dialogue box I have never seen before appeared, insisting I set up a "profile". What profile? Why? Why no explanation of why I need a profile, and what the h.... is the difference between the two profiles offered?

When I finally chose "default" for profile (NO idea what that means!), I saw that all my settings are gone and most alarmingly, ALL my bookmarks. HOW do I retrieve them?

I am using a laptop Dell with Windows 10, 64-bit....what else do you need to know?

Really upset with this. Also upset with how difficult it is to find immediate help for Firefox.

AFB.

Hi, I've been a Firefox user for many years and don't have the slidest idea of what password I used to setup the account. I read in the Firefox documentation that I could loose all my information if I change my email but that's exactly what I need to do. I currently use gmail and have switched to Outlook. Two questions, how do I change to Outlook without loosing bookmarks, etc. and can I import my gmail accounts into Outlook. Thank you in advance. PS, I created a Recovery Key

I own a mac and had to erase all my data from my computer in order to upgrade to new system. Issue is - the apple support person did not remind me to save down my firefox browser data/bookmarks. Now my mac is updated and it's like a brand new computer. I searched previous forums and apparently firefox automatically saves down your data but I don't see it in the appropriate folder (Old Firefox Data >bookmarkbackups) - I see data from 2016 and 2017. Can I recover these bookmarks?? I had a lot of important ones saved..

Hi all,

I'm having a pretty frustrating issue that I've been trying to troubleshoot all morning with my bookmarks toolbar. I've made sure the toolbar is enabled, changed my theme, used multiple workaround on this forum and others, refreshed and reinstall Firefox to no avail. The only thing I noted was after my first refresh of Firefox my bookmarks toolbar was present, but when I closed firefox and reopened it again it was gone.

Thanks in advance.

Since upgrading to Firefox 99.0.1 when I bookmark a web page into a specific folder, the URL does not appear when I open that folder. A restart of Firefox does not fix the issue.

But if I try to Bookmark the same page again, I am asked to edit it. So it must be in the folder but it is not visible! Help!

I was having problems with Windows 11 and I reinstalled it, After the new installation I lost my passwords and bookmarks from Firefox. I signed into Firefox however I did not know my password so I had to renew it, does this mean I have lost the passwords and bookmarks forever? I didn't have a recent back up, either. I tried to do a system restore but the new version of Windows 11 did not have any restore points. Regards from Narelle Patterson

I upgraded my iMac from Mohave to Monterey and lost all my bookmarks in Firefox. I had hundreds. I'd like to get them back. Maybe from a saved backup file on my backup harddrive. I've tried all the suggestions posted online. It looks like the file that holds the bookmarks was updated to the most recent. I don't know where to find the old bookmarks file. Can anyone help?

Hello. Since I use the bookmark bar and fullscreen mode a lot, I would like to be able to see the bookmark bar in fullscreen, not on every tab, but only in a new (empty) tab, so that I can avoid disabling fullscreen to access the bookmark bar and at the same time not having any part of the interface visible unless I'm in a new tab. Thanks in advance for any reply!

Hello everyone :)

From a folder, I have loads of Firefox profiles from different eras. I am looking for a way to export all the bookmarks of each of the profiles to an HTML file like the manual method (Library > Import and backup > Export bookmarks to formal HTML), but all in an automatic way by script. I like the HTML export from Firefox because it allows you to quickly navigate using keywords, either in links or in the folder names I gave.

Is there a simple solution that would reuse, for example, the same export code as Firefox ?

Thanks in advance With adelphity estebann
