I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome and I find very hard to access my bookmarks giving the fact that in Chrome I had the possibility so synchronize my bookmarks on a new device including their icons on the toolbar. All my bookmarks are arranged by icons to save space on the bookmark toolbar so in Firefox after synchronizations I only see that globe or whatever it is as a icon for bookmarks and to get the icons I have to access all the links.

Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.

Sincerely, AM

Can I export only specified bookmarks, or a specific bookmark folder, or is it all or nothing? If I export the whole thing to a .json file or to an HTML file, can I then import only selected bookmarks. (I want to copy a bookmark folder from one Mac to another. Different OS versions, same Firefox versions.)

Thanks, Wimsey

Whenever I try to add a bookmark in FF (81.0.2, 32-bit), the default folder for the bookmark is "Other Bookmarks", with the option to save the bookmark to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder (which is my preference).

How can I get FF to default to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder when saving a bookmark?

I want all bookmarks to appear and not just Recently Bookmarked. I also want my Personal folder to be in the initial list. Lastly, I want to be able to manually move each bookmark or folder to the order I want them. All this possible in the last iteration of Firefox. Why not this one?

When I click the star icon, it bounces to the clipboard icon, the dialog box "Page Bookmarked"comes up and I press done. If I input that url again, the star icon is a solid colour and if I click the star icon again, I get the "Edit Bookmark" dialog box. Firefox thus seems to be recording my bookmarks. However, inputting a bookmarked url does not cause autocomplete and requesting a listing of bookmarks shows an empty list, so I don't seem able to call up bookmarks.

I am trying to clean up my bookmarks and reorganize or delete bookmarks no longer used, however it appears the program possibly has an auto install of bookmarks, possibly from my phone or another browser. How do I turn off auto install of bookmarks. I guess what I am trying to do is turn off Syncing so my Firefox device does not obtain bookmarks from my other devices.

I just updated to Windows 10 Pro from Windows 7 Pro. When I do a create new folder in my bookmarks I cannot name it. It stays as New Folder where I created it. I can only change it by going back to location in Bookmarks and then I right click on the New Folder and can only change the name by going into Properties and typing over the New Folder name.

Why has Firefox started automatically adding bookmarks without asking me what to name them. In the past, when you clicked on “Bookmark This Page” a box popped up and asked you what you wanted to name the bookmark and where you wanted it to be saved. Now a little blue flag appears at top right corner of the screen and your bookmark has already been added. You then have to right click on the bookmark to edit it’s properties. Does anyone know how to change that back to the way it was ? Thank you so very much for your help on this.

Mike
