Yesterday an IT guy from my job did some work on my computer to reinstall my document camera (I'm a teacher) which wasn't working for some reason. After he finished, I noticed that my bookmark toolbar is no longer visible on my browser. I cannot find anything selected that would remove it. Any idea why that would be?

I've tried restoring bookmarks from a Western Digital "My Passport" backup to a new installation (on a new computer) of Firefox following the old computer "dying." The post https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1265148 allows me to select the files to restore, but isn't able to copy them from the backup. ...any ideas? (I'll try posting this on the WD website as well.)

I just finished installing Ubuntu 20.04. When I started Firefox for the first time, it told me I was using an 'out of date' version and advised me to update. I clicked on OK to do the update and thought it strange when Firefox started that it didn't have my home page. I immediately went to check the settings (now Preferences) and saw that the Home page was gone. I suspected that something had been done with my Firefox settings and checked my Bookmarks only to find them all gone. I don't believe that Firefox development would be so crass / careless as to delete my Bookmarks in this fashion. How can I retrieve them ?

I have hundreds of folders called "From Internet Explorer" inside of these folders are different number of links sometimes hundreds of links that just say "Suggested Sites" with a globe at the start. I have no idea where they come from I don't have any of these in Bing/Explorer. Getting rid of them is very time consuming and I think they come back.

A couple of months back, and entire bookmark folder suddenly disappeared. I assumed that I had inadvertently done something to cause this, though it had never happened before. Today, not only is another folder gone missing, several others have as well. I am using Windows 10 Pro, Version 1909, Build 18363.900. I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome for security issues, but unless I can figure out what is happening here, I am going to switch back. Any ideas?

I have just purchased a new iMac. The retailer instakked all myold software, including Firefox. When I opened Firefox I found a number of bookmarks for companies with which I no longer have any deakings, and I tried to delete them, following the proceedures in Firefox Help. But it didn't work, either way. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of these annoying bookmarks?

When I launch FF, I want two pages to open. Inside the options, home, I can set multiple pages to open. That's fine. Unless I'm missing something though, I don't have the option to have a single site as home page. I suggest this for a future update for FF. Chome has this option.

Corrupted toolbar bookmark locks up PC in Firefox 79

Clicking on a TV Guide bookmark on the toolbar displays a screen supposedly from Windows 10 support which says PC has been corrupted by virus and wants my license code. Screen cannot be closed and keyboard doesn't work so can't do alt/cntl/del to cancel task. Had to power off PC and power it back up to free things up.

All other bookmarks on the toolbar worked fine. Performed a Windows update and McAfee virus scan but those did not correct the problem. Finally fixed it by deleting that bookmark and then recreating it using Google. Now works fine.

This is similar to a 'red screen' problem in Firefox from a long time back.

Unable to send any diagnostic information since entire PC is locked.
