I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

I posted this problem back when v.80.0 was out. It was later fixed, but now it's back.

Loading an external bookmark as the default start page in v.83.0 and using it as the default bookmark (file:///C:/Mine/Testing/BOOKMARK.HTM) creates an error.

The error is that clicking on any url in the bookmark to visit and then clicking the top left arrow to return will always bring you to the top of the bookmark. It used to bring you back to the same location on the bookmark. Now, it brings you back to the top of the bookmark. Thus making it necessary to scroll back down to the location (url) you just visited. Really annoying to have to keep do this in order to return to your original location in the bookmark.

Hope someone can help again.

I had to reinstall Ubuntu 20.04 because I removed vital Python 2 and 3 and it broke. Before doing this I was logged into my Firefox profile and should have had my bookmarks and extensions synced. I do not see any reason why this would not be the case. However, after my reinstall of Ubuntu and logging into Firefox profile all of my bookmarks and extensions are gone. I tried checking around Firefox and it only shows bookmarks and extensions from after my reinstall. I have not performed a backup since I reinstalled Ubuntu, but those bookmarks are there. So I don't understand why I can't find my old bookmarks and extensions from before my Ubuntu issue, because I was logged into my Firefox account. My Firefox account information should have been saved to my account not my computer anyway. Please help me I had a lot of important bookmarks on there, but can't remember all of them.

Can Bookmark folders get sorted automatically so that they appear withing the context of all sorted bookmarks, rather than at the top? (I mean within the context of a bookmarked folder.) For example, suppose I have a Bookmarks Folder called Folder A. Its contents look like: Folder Folder Bookmark Bookmark...

But what i want is: Bookmark Bookmark Folder Bookmark Folder (Alpha order assumed.) I want them strictly alpha, regardless of file/folder property, as displayed in 'ls -l'. Having to do this manually is annoying.

When I add a bookmark Firefox puts it in either "Other Bookmarks" or "Bookmarks Menu". Having to hunt in two places for new bookmarks is infuriating. How do I get the programmers to add an option in about:config to remove or disable "Other Bookmarks" so that new bookmarks are just added to "Bookmarks Menu" like they should in a normal world?

So, I just noticed today that my bookmarks section is acting oddly. Normally it brings up the option for where to send a bookmark. But randomly, I've seen it suddenly switch to just defaulting to the last bookmark location. For example, I want to bookmark something in a bookmark folder I have specific for things related to writing, but when I go to bookmark the site, the first thing that comes up is the location I created for youtube videos. What exactly is going on here, and how do I fix that?

I prefer to save my bookmarks to my Bookmarks Toolbar but FF defaults to Other Bookmarks. It's annoying at best and a waste of time to have to select the location I want every time. This should be an option. I don't want Other Bookmarks in my toolbar, either, thanks very much.

Previous Session not restored and then all bookmarks/history erased

I closed a session with about 70 tabs, and upon reopening, firefox opened two windows, and the "restore previous session" was grayed out. I looked at "recently closed tabs" and there was only about 5 recent google searches in there, and none of my older tabs.

I closed the windows and tried again, this time "restore" was available but it opened only one tab to a website I hadn't had open in a session for weeks.

So I tried the fix listed here: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1245632

Renamed the folder. And now on opening, all of my history, my bookmarks, my bookmark toolbar, is completely gone, and the only toolbar bookmark I have is "Getting Started" like a brand new version of firefox.

Please help, I have so many important websites in my bookmarks and I'm ruined if I can't restore them.

Is there a way to sort the bookmarks in the dropdown menu?

I can sort the bookmarks (e.g. by name or date last used) in the "Show All Bookmarks" menu, but this doesn't affect the dropdown menu, which I usually use. Also, if I close the "Show All Bookmarks" menu and reopen it, they are again unsorted.

I just want to quickly navigate to websites I visit often. Having them on top of the Bookmarks dropdown menu would be very useful. Do I need a third party add-on for this?

Please note that this is the sidebar I am talking about, not the toolbar which uses browsers.toolbar.bookmarks.2h2020. I am asking for the flag if it even exists to have the ability to have the bookmarks sidebar show only when on the homepage and new tab page, akin to how the bookmarks toolbar only shows up when on those specific pages.
