I exported 2 days ago my bookmarks to Avast Browser. I tried to open some of them from Avast Browser and noticed that many of them are missing, even some folders. I tried to import them back to Firefox, but the Avast Browser does not appear in the list of browsers, so I cannot do this. And I am not sure if improting them back will restore the missing ones. Is there any way to restore my old bookmarks on Mozilla. I have not backed them, I am afraid. Many thanks for your support!

My bookmarks will not arrange manually even though I have followed the below instructions from the help guide to the letter. Everytime I drag and drop it somewhere in the folder, 10 seconds later, it moves itself back.

Rearranging manually

   Click the Library button 57 library icon on your toolbar. (If you don't see it there, click the menu button fx57menu then click Library.) Click Bookmarks and then click the Show All Bookmarks bar at the bottom.
   Click the folder that contains the bookmark you want to move to expand it.
   Click on the bookmark you want to move and then drag it to the position where you want to move it.

Just updated to FF73. For my library I've always used the following toolbar shortcut for an easy one-click-access --- chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarksPanel.xul. Since updating, this road is closed. So, the question is - what command would now function you believe?

Hi there, I run FF 73 on Lubuntu, and since the upgrade chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul is no longer found. I use it as a handy bookmarks and downloads manager within a tab. Error message:

"Firefox can't find the file at jar:file:///usr/lib/firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/browser/content/browser/places/places.xul. "

I realize that this question is similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223548#answer-1127393 but it doesn't solve my issue. In fact the URI's listed also don't work I have found:

   chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/historySidebar.xul 

Please advise. Thanks for your help!

Firefox Stopped working (Window 7 SP1) and I had to reinstall it form scratch. Now I have lost my bookmarks. when I go through the procedure to restore them, I can see the historical backup files going back some days. But when I attempt to restore from any of those files, I get this Error Message: Unable to Process backup file. I can find nothing on Firefox Help that addresses this problem. I have tried it in Safe Mode, but got the same result. Any suggestions most gratefully received.

After updating to 73.0.1(64-bit), it seems I cannot edit Bookmark properly

I can change Folder name, delete/edit Bookmark Entry ... etc Once I Copy/Make new Folder, the Bookmark seems ... locked

No more changes can be made before rebooting the system

It is happening on both Windows, and macOS, both on 73.0.1

※It seems to be very OK on another computer with lower version, but it also stopped working after automatically updating to 73.0.1

Tried booting in Inrecognito(No Extension Allowed, and it appears to have same problem)

Wonder if is a known problem?

Thank you

firefox 73.0.1(window10) cannot add bookmarks with certain features (such as starting with 'chrome:') And if some bookmarks in the imported HTML bookmark file contain this feature You cannot find these bookmarks after importing. To be precise, it is not found but it does not exist.

I tried adding and exporting these URLs(chrome:, data:, javascript:, resource:) to bookmarks.html on Chrome. My firefox bookmarks were empty and then imported into bookmarks.html. Unfortunately, the problem reproduced.

btw,for the first time I knew that 'chrome:' could not be added to chrome bookmarks, chrome will automatically correct 'chrome:' to 'http://chrome/', it seems to have an automatic correction mechanism, it will fix these 'chrome:' | 'chrome:/' | 'chrome://'-> 'http://chrome/'. so, I changed 'chrome:' to 'chrome://xxx/'

firefox bookmarks were empty,then importing. ’resource:’ --> ‘resource:///’,’data:’and’ javascript:’ have not changed. It is interesting that only "chrome: // xxx /" disappeared

chrome-> bookmark--chrome.html-> firefox-> bookmark--firebox.html, I see that 'chrome: // xxx /' does disappear https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-02-29-12-33-07-a87ff6.png https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-02-29-12-33-12-e4da3b.png

I want to know if this is a bug or a firefox internal mechanism? If it is a bug, is it my case or can it be reproduced on other PCs? If this is the internal mechanism of firefox, can I find related instructions or documents, are there other situations that may be lost? To avoid losing more bookmarks, I want to know if there are other features?

The above comes from the Google Translator.

I have moved my bookmarks form an iMac to a new Windows 10 PC. Moving them was not a problem. But they have lost their favicons and now all have a grey globe as the only symbol. Very annoying. I had hoped that I could bring back the favicons one by one by using each bookmark. But that doesn't change anything.

I have a rather extensive set of bookmarks to various articles that pertain to how my server has been set up and different modifications.

As time wears on I have come to realize that these sites may not be around forever so I want to basically save each bookmarked page as a PDF on my computer.

Because I have so many bookmarks, I am hopeful this can be done in one action/command.

Doing so will allow me to keep an offline archive of my bookmarked pages that I can easily update as more bookmarks are added via the same action/command.

Currently, I only see that I can open each bookmark and manually save as PDF or save to file.

Thanks in advance!

At one point I had a bookmark that took me to my bookmarks library, one that worked like any other webpage using a chrome:// link. Well I accidentally deleted it and now can't get it back. I've tried making a bookmark that goes to chrome://bookmarks and chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul, but neither work. All the other questions I've found about this are from 2013 or earlier.

I am still using windows 7, working fine until today when Mozilla disappeared completely on start up. Reloaded from USB stick and I cannot remember how to add the toolbar underneath where the URL is. The one where I dragged and dropped and/or copied and pasted the URL's that I use most frequently. I do not like or use the side bookmark thing. I just want this 2nd space underneath the URL back where I can drag and drop sites. Very frustrating, thank you

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...
