Hello wonderful Mozilla Firefox,

Could you please educate me on how I may change the default view of my bookmarks. I feel like it did not used to default to the "other bookmarks" in the "Manage Bookmarks" library window (ctrl+shift+o). I find it a bit annoying that it defaults all the way to the very last folder in my whole library. How to fix this? I tried to delete this folder but that is not possible. I do not need to delete, I just want for my view to default to either the very top, or possibly to remember its last accessed folder/location. Is this possible?

Thank you very much for your time and everything you do.

An avid and loyal Firefox user.

Help! Firefox won't transfer bookmarks to new PC: tried HTML, json, and sync!

From: Dell XPS 13 (5 years old) on Windows 11. Up to date with The most recent version of Firefox which I believe is 120. Always stay up to date.

To: Dell XPS 13 (brand new as of this week), Windows 11 with all updates and Firefox most recent 120 again always up to date.

I have tried reading several articles on here and using different methods from multiple answers and threads and have failed to find a method which exports All of my bookmarks from my old computer to my new computer.

NOTE:

Would highly prefer a method that replaces all bookmarks and data on my new computer exactly with everything from my old computer!

I don't care about my bookmarks on my new computer because I don't really have any but I do care very much about my old ones. At one point when I was syncing them, The bookmarks on my new computer which didn't include The vast majority of them disappeared from both computers for a short time until I restored to a specific different date a few times and luckily have my bookmarks on my old laptop still.


I have tried exporting them as a JSON and as an HTML to put them on my new computer. I've read the HTML method puts them all in one place as opposed to replacing all of them. Obviously I would prefer the JSON method. However I have tried both with no success. I've also tried moving them into the documents folder both times as recommended. I've tried to restore to date on the new computer.

Transferring bookmarks individually would be way too time-consuming as I have a ton of different folders.

Someone please help me find a solution to do something which should be basic which is transfer all my bookmarks for my old computer to my new computer. I'm also logged into my Firefox same account on both computers and have tried syncing with no success as well. No matter how many times I do it. I repeated all of these processes many times with small variations.

Please someone help me get my bookmarks! Thank you for your time and help!

Best regards,

Nate

I want to add the Bookmarks to my Browser page. The schematic says I need to press the Toolbar button, but on my latest version of Firefox there is no Toolbar button. Then I have another problem with your instructions. I had to Download something called Filelink. It directed me the Preference section on my menu under More Tools. Accept there is no such thing on my version of Firefox. I have to send a video of about 54 seconds to someone via Thunderbird email, so need to know how I'm going to do it.

In addition to preventing the problem from occurring, Firefox needs to provide a fix to eliminate duplicate bookmarks in bulk.

I started Firefox and left the room. When I returned it asked me if I wanted to "Refresh" Firefox. I said yes. Now I have lost my bookmarks, history, etc. I have a profile from a backup. But learned I can't just move it into "Profiles" directory.' I've tried removing/reinstalling Firefox, etc. etc. As it is now, I have a Firefox that tries to start, but says "your profile can't be loaded." How do I reinstall my backups and history, etc.? I have RTFM, but it just dug me in deeper.

All help's appreciated. (Will be away until tomorrow morning) -Dennis

Hi, The attached image explains the problem in 3 steps. 1. I try to add a bookmark, a pop-up window appears. OK. 2. I get a menu with some recent bookmark folders, but I want a different one, so I press "Choose folder". OK. 3. Now I need to browse among numerous folders in my bookmarks, it worked fine before, but I cannot do it anymore because the folder names are not visible! As if they are written with a white font on a white background. I can scroll, choose (blindly) some folder, which is marked by the faint rectangle visible on the image. And the bookmark will be saved to that folder indeed. But scrolling blindly through my hundred folders is obviously not practical.

The problem appeared 1-2 weeks ago, probably after a FF update. Now I updated FF to the latest version 97.0.1, it doesn't help.

A couple of months ago I did some changes in FF config in particular to make bookmarks appear more dense: newer FF versions introduced huge vertical space between bookmarks. I can't remember what exactly I did (followed some recipe on internet), but it didn't introduce any problems. The problems appeared 1-2 weeks ago. System: Windows 10.

I have been reading "The Epoch Times". Sometimes, I will comment on an article. After I comment, I will bookmark that article, so as to return and view my replies. Unfortunately, I started to notice in my Bookmark sidebar, the bookmark is removed deliberately, without my permission. Is Mozilla doing this or is Epoch Times doing this. Because, this is illegal to do by law. Please answer.
