Hello dear Nerds

With the last update the Bookmarks have a wide distance when listed. Too wide! I have to scroll down endlessly to find things. Before they were neatly narrow and you could see twice as much. Kindly repair this next time please. Or can I do this? Best Ursula Zürich

Hi I have version 86.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 2004. My issues is that there is supposed to be a right click menu option to remove the new Other Bookmarks folder form the bookmarks toolbar but I do not have that option.

My username on reddit is tharmalzombie and I asked that and the community provided a few things to try sadly no solution provided worked.

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/m1srn2/how_do_i_remove_other_bookmarks_folder_from/

Another thing I tried not mentioned in the reddit post was to restart firefox in safe mode with addons disabled this did not help either.

I am not the only one with this issue as another user commented with same problem so there must be others.

Thanks for the reply.

Hi, I have lost the "file, edit, history, bookmark ect" I have tried to resolve this myself but all the help on the forum starts with click on the "3 vertical bars" I do not have this option, all I have is 3 dots which directs to "settings" which offers no help for the bookmark toolbar ? I have trolled the FF help pages but they all say the same thing to start with the "3 bar" icon. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've been using FF for 9yrs and have had no problems at all. Thankyou in advance.

Is there anyway to restore the format (compactness) of the Bookmark Menus without setting the Automatic Updates to not automatically update and then downloading the 88.0.1 version? I hate to not have the Automatic Updates, for obvious reasons, but don't want to use the double space of the Bookmarks even more.

With Firefox 91.0 update, the DREADED double-spacing of bookmarks is back--despite the volumes of complaints when it occurred with previous update(s). At least then, the fix to toggle off the "proton.contextmenus" code worked (as shown below)** NOW IT DOES NOT. With 50 million once dedicated users abandoning FIREFOX, why is this happening? How do we fix it NOW? (and no, I have no intention of becoming a secondary programmer every two weeks to fix these upgrades--nor I think will many others) Firefox Support, where are you?


    • Temporary Fix

For testing purposes, the developers left a preference in Firefox 89 to switch between new style and old style menus:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the preference to switch between true (new style) and false (old style)

Edited to correct some history -- so the followng transcript may be a bit out of synch -- I will state my current question below.

Two things happened at the same time -- I uninstalled Adobe Flash, and a Windows Update ran. I didn't notice the Windows update, so I blamed the wrong thing, the Flash uninstall. It was WIndows.

The Windows update caused all my bookmarks and history (and most cookies) to disappear. I'm on Firefox 68.10.0esr

I found my Profiles at C:\Users\[me]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles but I don't understand what's in there enough to fish the bookmarks out, and I don't see anything that looks like "15 backups" promised by the Mozilla help pages.

Where are my Bookmark backups?

The Bookmarks are all there, but the url is missing. None of the extensions (including ones I've paid for are there)

The logins weren't there, but are now restored from a previous install.

What I have done...

1. exported bookmarks to html and checked them out there. They were broken there as well.

2. Refreshed Firefox,

3. Restarted the PC.

4. Uninstalled Firefox (and discovered that I had both X32 and X64 on my machine) - uninstalled both. 5. Reinstalled Firefox x64 (current version 86.0.1)

6. the places.sqlite files from previous restores have the same problem.

I've started to refresh the links for the toolbar which has taken me awhile. I don't want to have to do it for all my hundred's of bookmarks.

Ideally what I'd like to do is uninstall the latest update, look at the bookmarks to see if they are still stuffed, and if the extensions are there. If they are ok, then I want to back the bookmarks to html. Reinstall the update, then restore the bookmarks. (And make a list of the extension names so I can reinstall them).

My guess is either that the sqlite file has corrupted, or the update has changed the file layout for the bookmarks, etc, and it's unable to interpret the links.

There has been a legitimate issue with the bookmarks since the 92.0 update. This applies only to Windows 7 users. The list is very lazy and will actually freeze up. It takes forever to highlight the bookmark you want and the favicons are delayed in populating. Refreshing Firefox doesn't work. Renaming favicons.sqlite and places.sqlite, and those with the -shm and -wal extensions, if existing, doesn't work either. I don't need help from contributors. The following message is to the developers &/or whoever bastardized Firefox since the 92.0 update...


As I stated, this is a Windows 7 issue. The developers should fix this problem for us Windows 7 users. It was them who caused this issue since the 92.0 update. Everything worked perfect until then. Here’s a bright idea for the developers. How about getting this matter fixed, so that us Windows 7 users can have the same functionality as everyone else. Stop screwing around with a million and one updates every year. You people are doing more harm than good. The people running Chrome are a hell of a lot more intelligent. No issues whatsoever with Windows 7! Try that on for size.

Hi! I need some help, please. Is there a way to move more than just one bookmark at a time to folders on my Windows laptop? I have thousands of bookmarks saved on my Firefox. And I wish to save them all on my laptop. But in the way you save one and one, not with that whole saving everything in one file. But saving them all so I can just double click the icon link in my windows to have it opened in Firefox again.

So anyway. It is possible to drag one and one bookmark like this. But I have never figured out how to move more at once. Is this possible? Please help. It would make my life so much easier, when I need to go through the 20,000+ things I have saved.

I raised the problem and had a response kindly trying to assist but after following all the steps advised I still can't access any bookmarks or history.

I have located the places.sqlite file as advised and renamed it but when I restart Firefox nothing changes and it makes no attempt to recover bookmarks from the backup files.

I would welcome any assistance as I have saved details I need.

Thank you.

I lost some of my bookmarks (I have 19000) when my cat stepped on my keyboard. No problem i make a daily back-up of my bookmarks since they are so precious for me (Thousand of BM are related too my work) It's not the first time I restore and I never encountered any probleme before. This morning, I did the usual but FF crashed and I had to restart my computer a few time. At one point, and I have no clue why, it restored a part of the BM but not the pesonal bar which is the most important since that's where I keep my BM for my research work.

Is the file too big now (It's about 5 Mo) if so why am-i not advise by FF when I save? Otherwise what could be the source of my problem??

Thanks
