dupe of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1139452

I want to be able to bookmark genealogy sources from personal, work, and library computers, and then bring them ALL together into Firefox bookmarks on my HOME computer. When using work, friends, or library computers (any computer other than my own, actually). I would like to "login" to a cloud based bookmarking system, update ONE set of permanent bookmarks there with NEW links, and then, finally, merge (or SYNC) that online set to my permanent Firefox bookmarks on my HOME computer system. Can anyone out there suggest a CLOUD BASED system capable of handling 1000s of bookmarks in nested folders, just like Firefox, which I could then IMPORT into FIREFOX on my HOME computer each time updates are added, thus maintaining the same folder structure???

I purchased a new laptop. I exported bookmarks to an html file on my desktop and copied them to a thumb drive. I then copied them to my new laptop. I then imported the bookmarks into Firefox on the laptop. They were magically added to the bookmarks on my desktop. It took a long time to delete the extraneous bookmarks.

How do I avoid this?

But once I find a bookmark, I also need to know in which folder it was saved, but I can not find a way to do this.

Tks.

Attempting to add a tag is not working, once I close the bookmark editor the tag just added is gone.

The feature where when you began to type the tag in the box and it gave you a drop down list has stopped working.

Attempting to add a tag while in the library to existing bookmarks: the tag vanishes.

Attempting to create a new tag: once you exit, the tag is gone.

Is it possible to restore favorites from a computer that was re-imaged? User doesn't know if they were ever logged into Firefox to use the sync feature. Of course this didn't come up until after the laptop was re-imaged so i'm not really holding my breathe. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you, Colin

I have followed the methods suggested. Opened the page. Clicked on the STAR icon. Clicked on REMOVE BOOKMARK.

Unfortunately, the bookmark remains?

Opening up Bookmarks and highlighting the bookmark and right click produces a menu, including DELETE. When deleted the bookmark remains?

OS was recently updated from Win7Pro-64 to Win10Pro-64.

Using Firefox 76.0.1 64-bit

Hello, It seems that my Firefox Browser upgraded itself and has a different look now, precisely speaking, my browser looks like beta version now. Earlier in the past, I downloaded Beta but I was disappointed because I COULD NOT FIND OR SEE MY BOOKMARKS.. Sadly and annoyingly, same thing happened now! I have lost all my bookmarks and bookmark folders. I would be grateful if you could please help me get my bookmarks back. Regards, HAKAN [email]

I recently refreshed Firefox, in the process of which all my bookmarks disappeared. When I try to manually add bookmarks, Firefox will not allow any bookmarks. When I attempted to add the information from the Old Firefox Data icon onscreen, it still refused to add or restore my bookmarks. I have checked my profile page and there is only 1 profile shown, so I cannot enable any other profile. Any ideas?

Recently, my Win7 PC failed. I was running the latest Firefox as default browser. Fortunately the C: drive was unharmed in the failure and all data was intact. Unfortunately, after a recent reload of Norton I overlooked including Firefox in the backup data set. My new computer is Win10 (bleagh) with the most current version of Firefox as default browser. What files on the Win7 C: drive contain my bookmarks and how do I get the Win10 version of Firefox to import them?

I can't make my bookmark file work. It won't load old versions, it won't save new bookmarks, it doesn't have all the parts it needs. I also can't download files, although I don't know if that's connected.

This happened at the same time "Pocket" became part of the new Firefox update.

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.
