Hi, I've started noticing that I've to re-search a website which ff should know since half a year. Today I retried it and I can confirm that for example https://docs.rs/chrono/0.4.2/chrono/ never shows up in my history, in fact it's unknown, no matter how much I browse to that site. In fact I've right now the website open and the history doesn't show anything about it. I'm not on privacy mode. I only let ff clear my cookie & search history on exit. I have other websites which appear in the history. Another example: I've youtube open right now and it's not showing up. 59.0.2 Ubuntu Edition

Backing up to a json or html file will save all my bookmarks except for the mobile ones I sync between my laptop and my phone. The jsonlz4 file in my profile folder also does not save mobile bookmarks. Sync by itself is usually enough to preserve all my bookmarks, but I made the mistake of installing FF ESR alongside regular FF which screwed everything up; it would have been nice to have had my complete bookmarks backed up at that point, so I could have restored all of them.

Btw, my laptop browser is spoofed: I'm using FF 60.0.1 on Linux Mint; I'm syncing my laptop with my android phone (FF 60.0.1 also).

Just a heads-up.

The knowledge base article omits the fact, that from a certain version of FF, the favicons.sqlite file needs to be copied over if you wish to retain your bookmarks' favicons.

When I click on Show your bookmarks everything looks fine, but once I get to the different folders it's impossible to recognize the links cause all the font is now white on white background. I tried to apply different themes, but so far I haven't found one that would fix this problem.

Bookmarks contains pages and pages of websites I've visited not ones I've bookmarked. Can't get rid of them and reload my real bookmarks

Last week my bookmark file went crazy and became pages and pages of links to individual Hotmail messages and other sites I had opened but all my bookmarks are gone. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox several times, tried to load in the bookmark html file I had created, tried to just delete all the links that are in there, and nothing works. On reinstalled versions when I click the bookmark tab or link it crashes the whole browser and I have to resort to task manager to close it out. I've uninstalled several other programs (like Skype) that I thought might interfere but nothing is working. I run premium malware and virus protection software and have run scans with no problems found. Since I am having the same problem on both the desktop and the laptop computers I tend to think there is a problem with the browser rather than the individual computers but I don't know what else to check. Any ideas would be appreciated as I have used firefox for years and years so am more used to it but may have to give up on it.

My grandmother installed an update to Adobe Flash, however there were "extras" that got downloaded along with the Flash update. Since then, she has lost her bookmarks and history and any new bookmarks/history is not recorded. At first, she received an error message that her bookmarks and history were being used by another program and could not be accessed, so I removed all those extra programs that came with the Flash update and her bookmarks/history returned. Then she received a message along the lines of "The Bookmarks and history system will not be functional" which cleared up after a reboot. Now nothing seems to work. I tried restoring them from a backup but it said it was unable to restore. As a last ditch effort we do have an Old Firefox Data, but it's from 2014 so I'd like to try getting her more recent stuff back before resorting to the old data.

Chose to update one of my computers and lost 20+ of my bookmarks and other things. Went to my second computer to check some things and all of it was there, then my blinked several times and it updated AUTOMATICALLY with out my OK so I lost it all off of that one also. So how do I back out of this last update?

Side point when I went to enter this information it kept telling me that my email address, that I have had for decades, was in use by another user on Firefox. I guess after I back out of this last update and get all my info back I will save it and then have to find another browser, since someone else is using my info here.

another 'let's develop something for the sake of developing' update that nobody seems to have asked for.

what is the point of seeing a screengrab of the page you are bookmarking?

and then - in case you forgot what you just did a second a go - you are reminded that it was 'saved to Library!' oh yeah? do you take your users for idiots?

how do I disable or remove these annoyances.

Ho Firefox sincronizzato con un iPhone. Modifico, aggiungo o elimino i preferiti sola dal PC. A distanza di tempo i preferiti eliminati tornano sulla barra e si sommano a quelli esistenti. Avvio e riaccendo il computer più volte e tutto va bene, poi, periodicamente mi ricarica tutti i vecchi preferiti. È un forte disturbo. Non so cosa fare.

I have Firefox synchronized with an iPhone. I edit, add or delete favorites only from the PC. After a while the deleted favorites return to the bar and add up to the existing ones. Starting and restarting the computer several times and everything is fine, then, periodically I reload all old favorites. It is a strong disorder. I do not know what to do. (Google trad.)

I continually backup my bookmarks since they have been lost far too many times. Mostly FF reverts to an older version - with no clear indication which one that will be. Since 12 March I have bookmarked several times but the system reverted to 12 March every time an update or similar occured. Checking the bookmarksbackup and bookmarks folders I find the newer sets of bookmarks have never been stored. So when I try to backup and check the folder the backup should be in (tried a variety of options just to see what happens) the file has NOT been written. I do not want to lose the current set and will therefore not force a new import by deleting locals.sqlite. So I need a fix to be able to store the bookmarks I have now. HTML does not work either, by the way.

As an IT Director we are able to set employee bookmarks for IE, Edge, and Chrome. Users can change or add bookmarks/favorites later but as default we want specific bookmarks/favorites listed.

I prefer Firefox; however, the old adm template I once used is aged and doesn't seem supported.

Does Mozilla have a method to do this?

I would like to continue using Firefox; however, this is a very big obstacle for work.

Thanks. Justin
