The current bookmarks include text, which is totally unnecessary IMHO, especially after using IE (although MS loused up this in edge too.) Having many book marks to go to and seeing the loss of convenience when having to go through another menu to find the desired bookmark, why not have the ability to use small icons? Why not make it simpler? Why not make it easy? Why not live up to the propaganda of being a better browser?

Google's rainbow G icon displays as my favicon for all YouTube pages and videos that I bookmark. But in the tab, YouTube's red rectangle with a white play arrow still appears.

This issue first appeared in my bookmarks several weeks ago. I do not have this issue in my Chrome browser. I've already tried the Forget About This Site option in History, but to no avail. I've also tried clearing cached web content and site data in Firefox's Options, again to no avail. Thanks in advance for any help.

Using the search feature in "bookmarks" searches then entire bookmarks folder. In order to manage my bookmarks, I would like to be able to search within the folder that is active and move items to different folder. At present, when you move bookmarks to another folder they continue to appear in the search window. It would be great if it functioned more like the search feature in MS Windows

Post v59 update/Post macOS 10.13.4 update: Older Bookmarks no longer internally referenced. How to reclaim prior config/settings?

Ever since I both updated Firefox to version 59.0.2 and the MacOS to version 10.13.4 all of my many bookmarks set prior to the updates are no longer internally referenced--meaning that opening a saved bookmark doesn't open as I'd saved it, instead Firefox searches the internet and finds that version, scraping my title edits. Firefox also no longer recognizes my saved bookmark and wants to save the newly opened bookmark as a brand new entity, destroying carefully designed folder filing.

I thought the problem might've been a change in how the address bar and the search bar are configured--prior I'd not opted for a search bar and used the address bar only for writing specific URLs; I changed to the the split option, but this hasn't made a difference.

I have tens of thousands of bookmarks in carefully designed and constantly updated folders that no longer function as sole/master bookmarks. How to I recover this functionality.

NB: In a possibly related issue when I search the finder on my Mac it also no longer remembers date when last used for most older files.

I start off the morning with my bookmarks and all is fine. Then, I notice that a new set of bookmarks has been added to the right of another set of bookmarks (I say it this way because neither set of bookmarks is the set I started out with and want to use). I have found the only way to deal with this is to restore an earlier set of bookmarks. However, before the end of the day, I get the another new set of bookmarks to the right of the bookmarks I thought I was using. This is both annoying and troubling. If I can see this problem happening, day-after-day-after-day, what other things are going on that I am not seeing? More importantly, why can I not get an answer to this issue?

Fortunately I have always backed up everything on my computer. My laptop crashed the other day and now I have no access it appears to my years of research kept on Mozilla bookmarks. Are they gone forever or is there someway that I can get access to them. In other words, are Mozilla bookmarks only specific to that one computer and once it crashes they are gone for ever unless I had done something preemptively?

simple is better. can this be done in firefox?

The problem is that my user name password for an account stays on the signin page after I exit the page. After the password, there is a little slash that looks sorta like a comma, but thicker and darker. I dont want my password and username to come up without typing it in when I sign in to the account. How do I put a stop to this?
