I have used Firefox with sync since sync were released. Today (25th dec), all of a sudden hundreds of saved passwords are gone, just 9 out of at least 200.

I have changed the password for my account and logged in. Tried to logout and login again but just 9 passwords is found, extremely frustrating!

Anyone got a clue what has happened?

After synching from my Mac to my iPhone, the bookmarks on my iPhone are bare. There aren't nearly as many as there are on my Mac. But, in looking at Firefox on my iPhone, I honestly don't see where synch is even turned on there.

I don't have anywehre else to import the data from.

Thank you and Happy New Year, Ori

When I open the Manage Bookmarks in Firefox I have thousands (not exaggerating) of recently bookmarked items. How to I delete all of them? I think I turned that feature off via the browser.bookmarks.showRecentlyBookmarked. I changed it from True to False I have tried deleting them one by one but it seems like they recreate and I am not making any progress deleting. How do I delete all of them?

Thank you.

How can I clear my recent bookmarks? If I try to delete any, it deletes altogether from it's bookmark folder. I understand that it was set up for convenience, but it sacrifices privacy. I don't want my private bookmarks showing up when I go to bookmarks under the 3 line menu. I have seen this question posted over and over, but none of the solutions work for me. Very upsetting. Firefox has been great EXCEPT for this one issue. It's enough to make me consider moving to another browser. I can't understand why Mozilla thinks this would be helpful. At the very least, make it optional or easy to clear.

Windows11

Have Firefox on my PC; want to export (which I understand how to do) to the desktop of a second PC, and then import them from there.

When I attempt to import from the Desktop HTML file on the second machine, I open the desktop file, the bookmarks do not show up in the toolbar; in Manage Bookmarks I can see that a new toolbar is created for each time I attempt the process.

How to get the bookmarks into the Toolbar of Firefox on the second machine?

Thank you / much appreciated.
