Hello! I have a question - with possible need for solution. When I create shortcuts for my most often used sites in "Top Sites" section, I want them pinned, arranged in my preferred order and displayed with big, clean, "favicon" image. BUT it doesn't always behave that way: 1) Some pages get this nice big website icon - you know: big "f" for FB or big red YouTube "Play" button. 2) While some get this annoying miniature "screenshot" with small logo in lower-right corner.

I managed to get rid of those mini-screenshots with "browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled" custom setting but small, lower-right icon problem remained.

The annoying part is that those icons exist and are seen by firefox, just can't make them fill all thumbnail space.

How can I handle it?

Thank You!

I would like to save my bookmarks to a folder and transfer it to a flash drive so that when my computer crashes {which it eventually will because all I could afford was a cheap piece of crap and I had to reset the thing once already}, I can just retrieve the folder from the flash drive and put them in Firefox when I download a new copy on the computer after reset.

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to find in which folder a specific bookmark is contained ? I can do a search on the "Show all Bookmarks" library but it only shows the URL without the folder. In Chrome there is a useful feature which let you easily highlight the location. It's very strange that isn't possible in Firefox.

There is an archived post here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1161879 but the tricky workaround is not acceptable for me. Any ideas ? Thanks in advance Stefano

hi,

I have a new install of firefox (78.7.1esr) on a new Apple Mac (10.15.7 Catalina). I used sync to sync bookmarks from an ubuntu install (85.0.1) onto the Mac.

The bookmarks arrived. They are visible on the bookmarks toolbar, bookmarks menu, and bookmarks / show all bookmarks. I can add new bookmarks using drag and drop, or by the bookmarks menu options. These bookmarks can be seen in the Bookmarks / Show All Bookmarks menu. But they do not appear in the bookmarks toolbar. It's as if there are 2 sets both started from the same sync.

  • Bookmarks added by drag and drop visible through the toolbar
  • Those added with add bookmark or show all bookmarks within the toolbar folder do not appear on the toolbar.

I've now got what looks like 2 sets that are drifting out of sync on the same latptop.


thanks for any help.

I keep my Bookmarks Sidebar open. It works properly for a few minutes and then it doesn't. The behavior it shows is as follows.

1. It quits scrolling. I have to click the web page and go back to the sidebar to scroll again. 2. It scrambles the bookmarks when I click one. 3. When I click one bookmark it opens some other one.

Basically it acts crazy. The one fix I have found is when it is acting up and I close and reopen the sidebar it starts working properly again for a while. Then the problems repeats until I close and reopen the sidebar.

Hi I have a folder which I imported from IE years ago which has all my bookmarked sites which I save my most used bookmarks to on a regular basis. As Firefox was running very slow, I refreshed it making sure to uncheck bookmarks in the refresh exercise. When I've just opened Firefox this 'imported from IE' is no where to be found. I'm completely distraught that this is lost as I can't replace the whole number of bookmarks that I've saved. Please help!

Thank you

What a tragedy!

My notebook just crashed! But being an IT person, I was completely confident that everything being in the cloud! I have nothing to worry about! That was right except for Firefox! I logged in to my account turned on sync Password came back, my containers also came back! But bookmarks completely disappeared! NOTHING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!

I tried profile thing there was 2 profiles in the new installations! None have any bookmarks what a mess!! How did Firefox fail so miserably in such a basic thing! I'm speechless!

And what made things worse that there is absolutely no way to contact anyone at Firefox to ask, or at least to express how outragous and incompetent is not being able to retrieve bookmarks on a synced account! This stupid local or different installation concept!! Oh my god who came with such stupid idea! And why its only for bookmarks!

I'm sure there should be away, as my bookmarks also disappeared from all other devices mobile and desktops alltogether!!

Are there any smart solution for such very stupid premetive problem! As my bookmarks literally in hundreds!

I was having some issues with my bookmark button in the url/address bar working improperly, which wasn't the first time. However I've forgotten the fix I've used a few times in the past. I don't mean the button that exists in the gray border outside the bar, I mean the one that sat inside the bar next to the three dot option button. Specifically the one that would light up to indicate that a page was bookmarked and, when clicked, would show what it was saved as in your bookmarks and in which bookmark folder location.

The button was no longer allowing me to edit a bookmark I had recently saved when I had clicked on it, simply lighting up to show it had been saved. When I right clicked it, it gave an option to hide it and I clicked it in a rush thinking I could toggle it back on and now it's gone. Again, this is not the first time I've had this issue but it happens far apart enough I've forgotten how to fix it.

For now I have an extension that somewhat imitates this specific bookmark feature, whereas it will light up to indicate a page I'm viewing is currently saved to my bookmarks and I am able to quick save via clicking it, but it's a cheap imitation of the real thing. It gives me no option to edit the bookmark from there nor does it tell me in what location a currently viewed page I have bookmarked is located.

If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. All guides, tips, and help listed on Firefox's forums, help pages, and web searches are several updates behind or years old and absolutely worthless. Please and thanks.

I use the Bookmarks Toolbar for all of my desktop bookmarks. I frequently create new bookmarks or refile bookmarks by dragging them and dropping them into the appropriate subfolder in the toolbar. While navigating through multiple layers of bookmark subfolders, I often accidentally slide the new bookmark a few pixels above or to the side of the submenu, briefly hovering over the browser window surrounding the expanded menus. After a fraction of a second, all of the submenus collapse and I have to start over.

Is there any ui tweak available to insert a delay into this submenu collapse? I have already tried changing ui.submenuDelay and ui.click_hold_context_menus.delay, but neither of those had any effect on this issue.
