Hi - I just reset my PC and trying to restore Firefox. I saved the default release folder (qejikze4.default-release-1669319412153) which contains the latest bookmarks in the "bookmarkbackups" folder. I tried to just replace the bookmark file in the new install (how I previously transfered them), but I can't find the files in the latest V.120 version. Any suggestions on how I can do it?

Thanks

Peter

Hi.

Is there a way to display a column in the bookmark manager (Ctrl+Shift+O) which would show in which folder each particular bookmark is?

Is there a way to search for bookmarks (in the bookmark manager or the bookmark sidebar (Ctrl+B)) by specifically excluding certain (bookmark) folders (e.g. MySessions, Save for Read Later, BSP2 trash folder, etc)?

If the above is not available, please kindly consider those ever since important features.

Thank you very much :)

Greetings...

I have multiple computers connected to a home network, with each computer using the latest version of Firefox. Instead of each computer containing its own file of Firefox Bookmarks, I would like to create a single bookmarks file on the Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive and point each of the computers on the network to save its Firefox Bookmarks to the bookmarks file on the NAS. In this way, all of the computers on the network would have access to and update the "master collection" of Firefox Bookmarks.

Is this possible? If possible, what do I need to do to accomplish this task? Please advise. Thank you very much for your help!

I have a PC desktop and laptop. Bookmarks have always been synced in the past. I have just been away for 6 weeks and added and changed many bookmarks on the laptop. I confess I do have a lot built up over the years. When I came back home I expected to sync as in the past without problem to the desktop. However sync wouldn't happen although both were ON and on same wi-fi. So I restored into the desktop a json file I had made on the laptop just before coming home. I also have a json file made on the desktop just before leaving.

Disaster. While all the bookmarks may be there on the desktop (I don't know) all the folders are now empty and all bookmarks are simply in one huge unusable list in the bookmarks menu. Same result with the desktop json file. It would take days to put them all back into folders one by one. Having tried various things now my laptop is the same !

Why did this happen ? How do I get the bookmarks back into all the folders ?

In the past when I reinstalled Windows and then Firefox, I would sign into my account and all my bookmarks/addons etc. would automatically get reinstalled. Today I had to reinstall Windows and when I logged into my firefox account, nothing happened. Does Mozilla no longer keep these settings for us? I don't have any other devices to sync off of and never have, so where did all those settings come from when I did previous reinstalls?

Unable to sync (update bookmarks made on another macbook air 11.7.7 Big Sur/current firefox), despite: clearing cache/cookies turning off macbook air (others are macbook pro) ran troubleshooting-it read 'false' for bookmarks but could not make 'true'! tried repeated sync 'now'..display took a while after trouble/refresh modes, then solid blue...still no updated bookmarks-WEIRDEST is the sync settings after pressing sync now will show the bookmarks check box immed. if I re-select it..but after going out and then back into sync setting prefs, the bookmarks check box is again unchecked (NOTE-I can't tell if that is default since I just ran a sync now, but it would be strange that it keeps removing it as a pref). The other macs are updating to each other fine..and are SAME identity (tho one macbook pro of 2 is old=2010, and is using 10.7.7.

 These are older machines.  The only thing that I note differing in the macbook air I'm having trouble with, is it was bought/wiped from a used computer company, so sometimes readss "Soonersoft's Mac" even though I have all correct admin settings! I've no idea how to remove that other owner name (shows up when I do a system restore from disc, for example). I don't want to ramess with that b/c it presents no issues anywhere I'm aware of.....

Frustrating, esp. b/c other two macbook pros sync bookmarks fine! HOW DO I CHANGE SYSTEM DETAIL TROUBLESHOOT REPORT WHERE IT SAYS 'BOOKMARKS=FALSE?" TO TRUE??!?

Why does my tool bar disappear after typing in website in search bar? Book marks appear when I open a new window, however as soon as I type something in the search bar or click on a website the book marks disappear. I have to open a new window for them to reappear again. I didn't change any settings, it happened on it's own. I've added a screen shot for when I open a new window (book marks appear) and a screen shot for when I've typed something in the search bar (book marks disappear). Thank you!

Is it possible to perform partial bookmarks sync?

Let's say, bookmarks from machine A that are synced to the server completely would be then synced from the server to a bookmarks subfolder on machine B, is it possible? The rest of the bookmarks on machine B would need not to sync to the server in such case.

Alternatively, both machines sync to the server but the user would need to specify which bookmark sections (folders) need to be synced and which not, thus avoiding duplication and maintaining consistency.

The website https://www.cvs.com/ and the website https://www.cvs.com/otchs/bcbsma access two different websites with two different user/password. But there is no way to tell Firefox to have two different sets of user/password for each URL. When trying to access https://www.cvs.com/otchs/bcbsma, Firefox tries to log in with the user/password of https://www.cvs.com, which does not work. The two URLs have different user names, dictated by the websites

Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

Preference "browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs" sets itself to true every time I close and reopen Firefox. I believe it just randomly started doing it one day. I have to manually set it to false each time I open the browser This preference makes it so, when true, whenever you click a bookmark it opens it in a new tab rather than replacing the tab you are currently on.

Running FF 117.01 I ran Scanguard and now none of my Firefox bookmarks work. All are still showing up where they were, but none of the bookmarks led anywhere, when I click on them, nothing. Restarted FF, restarted the laptop. I also cannot seem to open the About Profiles page to check there. I would rather get this working if I can, other than re-installing. Thank you for any help.

Hi

I use Firefox at work on 2 different computers. Firefox sync is unfortunately disabled and not an option.

Is there any way I can sync my bookmarks / profile between the 2 machines?

I do have access to Dropbox. Is it possible to use that to somehow sync the bookmarks between the 2 machines? Doesn't have to be in real time.

Right now I am manually exporting bookmarks and re-importing every time I switch computers.

i would like to be able to remove ANY bookmark at ANY time from the main menu, not the bookmark bar but the icons in the middle of screen when you open the browser

I cant delete half of them, they flicker for a millisecond and dont disappear. how? i feel like clicking dismiss should forcefully remove the icon. it doesn't and this just makes me a little angry.

add the ability to click on the 3 dots and click a new button called DELETE. it should fix the issue by removing it.
