Hello,

I've saved my bookmarks by using Export bookmarks to HTML". But the "tags" and "keywords" fields are not listed on the created page.

How do i save tags and keywords?

Related question: I'm using a Mac... where are the tags and keywords stored? Is that in /Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/(profile name)/bookmarkbackups/bookmarks-(date)(hash)==.jsonlz4 ? How would i read that and be able to utilize the tags and keywords from there?

Thank you for any clues.

I have two Firefox Bookmarks items in my Menu Bar that are duplicates. The titles are slightly different but they are the same G Mail acct. I'd like to delete one of them from the Firefox Bookmarks Menu Bar. If I recall there may be an issue of them both being deleted if I try to only delete one? Thank you

FF lose all open and pinned tabs if I close the basic FF window first (for example, the private window or other window remains active)

Can anything be done about it? Manually re-creating all (more than few) pinned and lost tabs takes a really long time :(

How can I restore or get back a folder in my bookmarks that had ALOT of favorite sites in it? I was in my bookmarks and accidentally deleted a ENTIRE folder of bookmarks (probably 100 saved websites). I dont remember when the last time I did a BACKUP of my favorites folder and I think that I added websites to the folder just within the past week. How can I get them back? There is no "Recycle bin-type thing to restore from. HELP!
