How do I sync bookmarks between computers and mobile devices so that there are no duplicates saved in bookmarks? I have 2 computers and at least 3 mobile devices in regular use, all with Firefox as the default browser. I have been using Firefox for over a decade and I have literally thousands of bookmarks saved. Whenever I go into the bookmarks menu to find a saved bookmark, I am confronted with multiple folders with the same names and the same bookmarks saved in each folder. Is there a Master record of bookmarks saved in the cloud that I can use as a default for each device or am I stuck with all of the duplicates and hours of comparing and deleting in order to make it all make sense?

Will the import process for bookmarks import duplicates or will it filter out the copies?

I've used FF for years. I recently tried Chrome and imported to Chrome from FF all my FF bookmarks and data. While using Chrome I've added book marks and more. I want to import back to FF from Chrome bookmarks that were added into Chrome. Is FF's import tool smart enough to filter out from the import all the copies that already exist in FF? Or what is the best method for importing everything?

How do I get rid of the extremely annoying and useless "Other Bookmarks" folder which I NEVER use? This forum is misleading because it says only 3 people have this problem. I'm sure there are many thousands but it is almost impossible to comment or reply. It was a major puzzle for me to get this far. Firefox should to make a simple list of bookmarks available, when you have the Bookmarks symbol on the toolbar. It should be the default instead of hiding them in "other folders". If someone wants to make it more complex they easily can add folders. The default now is too complex and difficult to change. Every time I need to add the Firefox browser to a new operating system I need to do extensive research and fiddling just to simplify because I cannot remember the gymnastics I had to go through the last time.This time it made me so exasperated I nearly gave up went to Edge.

Hi all,

I have had an account signed in to Firefox browser that held tens and tens of bookmarks. I had all my bookmarks linked to my profile before I sent it in for repair.

I received my laptop a couple of days ago and I can see the web history going back to when I purchased the laptop, but there are no bookmarks (save a single one) from before I sent in my laptop for repair.

I looked at the about:profiles but one is a default profile with no history and one is default-release with my web history (and one bookmark). Neither have my the entirety of my bookmarks.

Please let me know if there's anything I can do to recover my BMs.

Thanks.

Hi,

I have many important work-related bookmarks associated with Mozilla. When last update came on 20th October 2020, Mozilla crashed all of sudden and not at all opening, so again downgraded to version 8.01. After I lost all my bookmarks data which I need them desperately. I tried unistalling and re-installed & tried to fetch my old data but no fruitful result yet. Kindly help me to get back my data.

Hi group, over the years I encounterd sevaral times that my tabs were gone after a restart Since (I guess) version 60 this has not happened again so I thought it was fixed, untill today

By accident I closed Firefox, and after it had restarted all my tabs were gone, despite the fact that I have "restore previous" set in my preferences

I would like to hear If there is a way to save these tabs outside FF and how to do that

Hey folks. Just acquired a new Macbook pro and, of course, loaded my fav browser FF (84.0.1). My older mac also has 84... installed. My bookmarks menu on the old machine drops down with one click on "Bookmarks" in the tool bar. I can't replicate that with the new Mac. It takes a second click on "Show all Bookmarks" in the drop down. Granted there are far bigger problems in the world but this one little convenience is nice to have. Anyone help?

I want to be able to go to "show more bookmarks" and scroll to see everything - meaning bookmarks and the bookmark folders. Right now I can't see the folders. I don't want to bother with going to the library icon and then opening all bookmarks and then navigating to the bookmarks. Why can't I just go to "show more..." and see everything? I can do this on one computer (PC) but not on another. What's wrong? I'm using version 84.0.1 on both.
