For well over a year, I have had this problem: Many times when I selected a bookmark, nothing happens. It does not go to the bookmarked site. I have tried the following things: 1. Start FF in safe mode. 2. changed OS from Windows 7 to Windows 10. 3. Made sure my OS and browser were up to date. 4. Tried different Antivirus programs.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you so much!

I can't get Firefox to show the bookmark editor. I thought i may have accidentally manually disabled it for new bookmarks, but when i tried to access it on an existing bookmark, it wouldn't come up. The star button still has an "Edit this bookmark (Ctrl+D)" tooltip, but does nothing when clicked. Ctrl+D does nothing further on an existing bookmark. I went into about:config, and the browser.bookmarks.editDialog.showForNewBookmarks option was set to true. I went ahead and toggled it off and on again to see if it would refresh or something, to no effect. Ultimately, i guess that's beside the point, as i can't even bring it up for existing bookmarks.Any suggestions, beside going in and manually shuffling each new bookmark into a folder from the library?

I need to update Firefox on my Laptop but when I updated it on my PC I lost all my Bookmarks and I can't do that. I am using Windows 10. It should be built in the programs that when you update your Bookmarks are automatically moved.

The thing I liked best about Firefox was the text of the links for the bookmarks were close together, so I could see a LOT of them with little space. That has changed in the recent upgrade. How do I revert to the older version? Or, how do I configure the newer version so that the bookmarks are listed more tightly packed together.

I hate that this June Firefox update has double or triple spaced my Bookmarks drop-down menu. I had just the right amount of folders and links that could expand to the bottom of the screen and now it goes well off the bottom of the screen and requires scrolling back up and down to use the links I use for the office on the 24" screen. Worse, my Firefox syncs with my laptop at home so on that 15" screen its even an even worse problem. I can't find a way to close them all up the way they used to be. There was nothing wrong with the browser as it was. If anyone wanted a new look, they could select different themes rather than force this arbitrary update on all of us.

I retired from my workplace and was previously syncing my settings to my workplace email lkendall@keeferealestate.com. When I got my computer back I had a new user profile and when my I.T. guy and myself signed in (forgot my Firefox pwd) so we reset my pwd and then changed my email to my personal email address lkendall@genevaonline.com. Unfortunately after the browser finished syncing none of my saved sites, pwd, bookmarks, etc., came back....help!

My bookmarks are all sorts of messed up. My laptop bookmarks are fine, my desktop all of a sudden disappeared. i've gone through all of resources mozilla provides and nothing is helping. I just want my old bookmark settings back. I'm pretty upset that Mozilla changed anything without my permission and if this doesn't get fixed soon I will be switching to a new browser.

I use Firefox on macOS and Windows 10, Firefox Nightly on android, I save all bookmarks in the toolbar. Syncing between macOS and android is perfect, but not between macOS and Windows 10. If I add a bookmark in the folder, after syncing on another device, the new bookmark will be in the toolbar instead of the folder I selected. Also, all newly-added bookmarks are not in order.

Thanks in advanced!

Recently FFox completely collapsed on me, no response to clicks anywhere. So I downloaded and reinstalled the program, only to find exactly the same happening.

So I decided on a completely clean install. Before I did that i installed Opera <ptooh> and imported my passwords and bookmarks from FFox.

Haven't as yet found a way of re-importing those items exported, but that's a worry for another day.

First problem is that even when I add Bookmarks using either Ctrl+D or the fancy start to the right of the address bar nothing gets added to Bookmarks.

Recent Bookmarks ?? Nothing

Manage Bookmarks ??? Not a thing.

Next problem is that despite being very active here there and everywhere on the web over the last few days since re-install - I HAVE NO HISTORY !!

Clicking on the three bars top right, and then on History >> Recent History gives me zilch. Nada. Nothing at all.

It took me days to eradicate almost every sign of Edge from this computer, but I'm starting to think that maybe I might like to try it, so please offer me some assistance with my FFox problems.

So I went to history, and then under "manage history" it organized it by "today", "yesterday", "last 7 days", "this month", "june", "may", "april", "march", "february" and "older than 6 months". And on right clicking on today, there was a drop down menu that was "open all in tabs", "delete" and "copy". "Copy" was super duper worthless, it literally just copied the word "today" into the clipboard, in case I really wanted to paste the word "today" the hard way into notepad or something. I wanted to then test if I could delete the history from just today without deleting the entire history, so FOOL that I am, I tried the delete choice. And what did it do? It deleted the ENTIRE CATEGORY of "today". Now it just says "yesterday", "last 7 days", "this month", "june", "may", "april", "march", "february" and "older than 6 months". Because it seems to think that by deleting "today", that means I NEVER AGAIN want to access any history of that day, of COURSE that must be what I intended to do when I chose delete. It couldn't possibly be that I wanted to delete the browsing history of today July 9 2021, no of course not, I must have wanted to delete the entire category of "today" for all time, why would anyone want to just delete the history of that day when they can delete the entire functionality of the browser to display any of the history of the current day ever again. I'm trying to imagine what was going through the developers' heads here. So, can I, get it back somehow? I'm not going using that computer now, in case something can be done to undo this that won't work if I do anything.

Old bookmarks in old C drive

Hello Mozilla Support!

It is 0500 here so I will try to get to the point with a little problem. I have just created an account here as I have been unable to get much sense from people in IT (retail mainly) or general tech forums which has led to a certain degree of frustration regarding FF bookmarks. But first, I want to say that I have been using FF browser for sixteen years and love it - I am aware of Chrome but prefer Fox; I dislike IE. Thank you for all you are doing.

A little background: in March my old pc suddenly packed up and it felt like an old friend had died. It was running Win-7 (Pro) which I knew was no longer supported but I liked it, and the pc was reliable for ten years. I was told that the motherboard (ASUS) had gone, and after numerous questions and delays, the computer has been rebuilt with a new z590 mb (also ASUS), a gen 11 cpu and a SS drive running Win-10 as it was time to upgrade. I don't like Win-10 at this point because W7 seemed easier to use - I am not a gamer, just a browser. I still have the Win-7 Pro disc but have been told that this new MB will not boot Win-7. I will try to get around this somehow.

The main issue is this: over the years I had collected a large number of bookmarks, and although I was not using many of them, I think it's useful to save things and with FF it is easy to do. The old C drive from the computer (the 3.5 type - by WD) is now in a drive-reading enclosure and I can see Programs and Folders. I feed it into the computer I am using atm - an older pc running Win-7 Home. I found the Mozilla Firefox folder and another one named 'bookmarks' but I cannot see any reference to the bookmarks I saved or any option to Export Bookmarks. I know what this means as I have used it successfully before.

So, please tell me if it is possible to find then Save and/or Export those bookmarks from the enclosed C drive to either THIS computer or preferably the other (rebuilt) computer, bearing in mind that the other one is operating as described with a z590 mb. Will it be possible? Many thanks in advance!

Btw, I really did NOT like Win-10 when I finally got that other pc back - LATE JUNE!! - after weeks of waiting. The first thing I did was install Firefox and it felt better immediately. Again I thank you! Michael.
