As of version 91 I think it was, around middle of 2021 (last year), in the dropdowns from the across-to-the-top bookmarks menu, the items are spaced out vertically way too much. So much space is wasted. I like the spacing they had before that version. I just want to go on record as giving feedback that I don't like it, and wish it went back to the original spacing. I have looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1346987 and know there's all sorts of weird stuff I can do to customize my Firefox to get the spacing I want, however, my point with this post is to get feedback back to the Firefox developers to see if they will consider changing it back. If posting here is not the best way to get feedback back to the developers/designers/product-owners, please let me know the best way. I couldn't find another way.

I saw this topic in a couple of places on the forum, but the posts are from 2014/15, and some things have changed since then. Some updated instructions would be appreciated! I'm particularly concerned about my bookmarks.

Also, does it matter whether I had the same version of Firefox before and after the refresh? I'm not 100% sure that I did. Thanks.

Firefox pushed an update on me today. When I re-launched after the update, I had none of my bookmarks or plugins!

Logged in using the email account I *believe* I had been using, and two menubar bookmarks appeared, but the drop-down menu is missing everything else I had previously!  :(

Looking in the FF settings folder, it looks like there is a folder with other account settings, but I do not know how to identify which is which, nor do I know how to copy over settings from the other account...

Help?

Thanks,

-Chip

Hi,

I downloaded the new Firefox browser a couple of days ago and now I have lost all my bookmarks.

Does Firefox have a recent backup that I can import?

I clicked on 'Bookmarks', then 'Manage Bookmarks', select restore, but the bookmarks are from months ago.

Where are my current bookmarks?

Also, where is the bookmarks icon which was in the top right-hand corner, how do I access the bookmarks in this new version?


Kind regards,

Maria

Hi, when I use Firefox on this machine, the bookmark sync doesn't work as expected. Instead of maintaining the order of the other devices' bookmark toolbar, it is ordering the non-folder bookmarks before the foldered bookmarks. How can I make it so the bookmark toolbar is the same across all devices? I have tried deleted places.sqlite and backupbookmarks folder.

OS: Debian 11

Thank you!

If I try to drag and drop a new bookmark onto the bookmark icon (the star with the line under it), it USED to open up Bookmarks and I could place the new bookmark where ever. That no longer works.

I CAN drag/drop into a folder on the menu bar but not into bookmarks directly.

Can anyone out there help me, I’ve exported my FireFox Bookmarks onto an external hard drive and then copied them back onto the desktop and from there tried to import them back into FireFox.

All the subfolders have imported back into FireFox no problem, but for some reason it has not done so with any bookmarks which appear under the Other Bookmarks listing, is there something I'm doing wrong? The version of FireFox I’m using is FireFox Quantum 6.9.0.3 (64 bit) with Windows 10.

Hello. In my bookmarks library I have a lot of folders organized in a tree with multiple branches themselves organized in hierarchic levels. Sometimes I don't find the bookmark I want to use by browsing my tree, probably because I didn't put it in the right location in the tree. I can find it by the "Search bookmarks" function but this function doesn't provide the bookmark location in the tree (and I don't see any other way to locate it). Thus I can't correct the bookmark location error in the tree.

Is there a way to locate a bookmark in library folders tree ?

Recently I bought a new PC, installed Firefox on it, logged in with my account and synced all of my bookmarks and add-ons, etc My wife is now working on my old PC, therefore I removed all old programs and installed just the basic stuff she always uses. She's also created her own account after installing the latest version of Firefox. I didn't rename the computer, only her Windows useraccount. Also created a new profile, that doesn't help either because bookmarks keep getting synced between two different accounts each on a different PC and I don't seem to get it right. Looked at the different devices that should sync under each account, that seems to be OK. But everytime I make a change in the bookmarks on one of the PC's with it's own account the other one also gets changed under that different account. Can someone help me by taking it step by step, so I can understand what it is I am doing wrong?

I exported my bookmarks from my Win7 laptop (via FF Quantum). Exported it onto my Win7 Desktop, with HTML extension. Then pasted it to Flash drive.

Note that when pasted, the file displayed as a Blue I.E. Explorer icon.

I then switched to my Win10 laptop, and pasted aforesaid HTML file into My-PC Documents. I then clicked Bookmarks / Show-All-Bookmarks / Import-Backup / import-bookmarks-from-html / this-pc / documents

then i clicked on the bookmarks.html file ...it displayed in the textbox. ......but then it stated "no items" in the grey area below where it states "Names Tags Location"
