I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

'Most used' Bookmarks gone from address bar since update 78.0.1 (64-bit)

Hi, Since the latest update, I'm no longer able to see the most used bookmarked sites from my address bar. When I now click on the open space of the bar I get a dropdown of saved sites but not the most used ones like I used too. This has happened in a previous update too and because I cannot find a fix solution, I'm forced to make a post.

I've tried going into tools>options>home>privacy & security but ticking and unticking of boxes has been unsuccessful. Any help would be gratefully received.

After upgrading to Windows 10 or maybe Firefox 78.0.1 every time I navigate to a bookmarked page from the Bookmarks/Library window, that Library window continues to run in the background. I'd like to find a way to have this close automatically like it used to. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

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?

Hi, When I turned on my computer this morning, my bookmarks were not there. I've tried the steps laid out by Firefox, but no success. I tried another browser, Safari, which I seldom use, and Safari bookmarks were still there. I have many different bookmarks in Firefox so I'd rather not switch over to Safari unless absolutely necessary. Nothing else is missing, so I doubt if I've been hacked. I did check a bank account, which was fine. I'm not a high profile person, so I doubt if I've been targeted. And I see the pic of the lock closed in the URL bar constantly. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I'm on Mac OS 10.15.5 (Catalina) Firefox 78.0.1 (64bit) Thanks, JJ

Hello,

I am running FF 78.0.1 on W10. I had to upgrade to a new laptop from W7 but also running FF.

On my other computer I had a star button that had rounded tips that was located just to the left of the bookmark star. The rounded tip star simply performed the two step action of clicking the bookmark star and then clicking Remove Bookmark, but all with one click.

After moving to this new setup I miss this feature. I have searched this site and the internet and found no references as to how to add a button that performs the actions.

Does anyone have an idea on how to get a button like this with these features?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I have my bookmarks sorted into folders and I want to search a specific folder. I went to Bookmarks>Show All Bookmarks and I selected the folder I want, which happens to be Quilting. I know I have a bookmark for a quilt with pine trees so I put tree in the Search Bookmarks box and I get every bookmark with the word tree. Not just bookmarks in Quilting but in every folder. Can you search just a specific folder?

This afternoon I came in and my computer was off unexpectedly. After restarting, firefox looked odd and I noticed all my settings and bookmarks have all disappeared. I tried "restoring" them, but it says "unable to process backup file" and nothing changes. It doesn't matter what day i select, it will not restore. Something just isn't right with it. Seems its a new firefox sync thing that wasn't there before. Thanks
