Library jumpes to the top of Bookmark list when expanding any folder

Hi,

so for 2 versions now (since 101.0.1, while 101.0 was still ok) everytime when I'm in the Library/Bookmark Manager and expand any folder on the left, in the main window with the bookmarks, it jumps to the very top.

That is especionally annoying when you've selected some bookmarks to sort into folders which you first need to expand.

Why was that change? That behaviour wasn't there in earlier versions; and also makes no sense.

I imported my bookmarks from a windows 8.1 computer to Parrot Linux Debian desktop (2 different computers). I am missing the everything from 'Other Bookmarks' after I imported it into the Linux computer, I can see all everything from 'Bookmarks Menu' though. The windows machine is not working anymore. But I have a saved copy of all the bookmarks from the windows 8.1 computer.

Is there a reason my import left out the Other Bookmarks but imported the Bookmarks Menu? How do get them into the linux firefox browser.

Firefox 78.15.0 oesr Linux Parrot home edition OS version 4.11

Thanks in advance

Drag-drop bookmarking broken, Firefox 102.0 (64 bit)

I do not know which update began exhibiting this apparent reversion bug, as i have just returned home from several weeks in the hospital due to a heart attack, and do not know how many updates i missed.

When doing a drag-drop of a URL from either a link on a page OR the address line at the top of the browser, I will receive a "sanity failure" error, ranging from an empty NON-URL file, to an OS error complaining about being unable to access an attempted directory destination.

If the link I am dragging is bereft of illegal characters (i.e., ":" -- a colon), the action will succeed.

If there IS a colon, the text to the LEFT of the colon will become the filename. The colon and everything to its right will be truncated. And, the file will be a zero-byte file of unknown (to me) type.

Other illegal characters in the page's Title field will produce more dramatic misbehavior.

PLEASE revert to the previous behavior (i.e., filtering the Title before creating the filename for the bookmark file)!

Earlier versions of Firefox (again, I do not know when this began) NEVER exhibited this behavior.

I have close to 2000 bookmarks. There are organized into folders. I want get ride of the folder structure and have all bookmarks on together in one place - no nested folders.

I could click, hold, drag and drop but would be time consuming as I have too many folders.

How do unest all folders and keep all bookmarks together in single place?

Thank you

- You updated and took my bookmarks away (something I needed and used all the time. How can you do that? Really? - also every time I go on line I get another stupid sign at the top right telling me to update again. I'm being pestered to do something that screwed me over. - I’ve tried the (old firefox date folder, thing) and it didn’t work. (so please don't suggest that) - I have to go looking for what bookmarks I have left (no more drop-down menu with all of them right there where over the years I've organized them)

I used to like this program, a lot. If I can’t get my Book marks back I’m done with FireFox. What the hell were you thinking?

Methods to copy a single bookmark to multiple Firefox users

Hi,

We use a cloud-based ERP system. To access it, we use a bookmark for users to get to the initial login screen in Firefox. There has been a change in the login screen that will require us to use a different URL. We have about 75 PCs with many having multiple user profiles for Firefox that need the new URL.

I know how to quickly copy and paste the bookmark by remoting into a PC and then doing a copy/paste from the bookmarks toolbar on my PC to the bookmark toolbar on the remote PC.

I could also create a procedure for users to create their own bookmark but I think some users would find that a challenge.

I'd like to make this process more of a silent install but haven't figured out how to manage it.

We're currently all Windows 10 Pro using Firefox v101.0.1 64-bit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

MacOS FF dev edition 102: I have a folder in my bookmarks toolbar, and I frequently open all of them in tabs. But that option is missing from the context menu on the folder. It is there at the bottom of the folder if I click to open the folder, but this is silly. There is an "open all bookmarks" context menu option on the folder, but that opens all the bookmarks in the toolbar, not in that one folder. why is this?

I wanted to add a bookmark and found that the commands for Manage Bookmarks, Bookmark Current Tab, and Bookmark All Tabs were all grayed out. I searched help topics and tried everything I could find:

• I deleted the old xulstore.json file. • I used the Firefox refresh feature. • I found Places Database and tried Verify Integrity. It reported that both databases are sane (I'm attaching a screenshot of the results). • I restarted the computer. • I quit Firefox and got info on the places.sqlite file. It is not locked.

Nothing so far has worked. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hail all:

Now, Firefox has a very, VERY simple Bookmark Manager, that basically only allows to add, remove, and single-bookmark edit.

Now, I have for instance 6+K Youtube Links, which all, annoyingly, end with " - YouTube". I want to remove that idiocy, but to edit 6+K bookmarks, one by one?

Can you add a way to mass-edit bookmarks?

Also, can you add a "Explorer Tree Style" Bookmark manager, that shows all bookmarks in true Explorer style (As in:

All Bookmarks
--- Bookmarks Toolbar
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
------------- ...
-------- Folder 2
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...
--- Bookmarks Menu
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
-------------  ...
-------- Folder 2
------------ SubFolder 1
-----------------Bookmark 1
-----------------Bookmark 2
-----------------  ...
------------ SubFolder 2
-----------------Bookmark 1
-----------------Bookmark 2
-----------------  ...
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...
--- Other Bookmarks
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
-------------  ...
-------- Folder 2
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...

(without the "-" 's of course, this was my way to represent the folder and "bookmark file" system in tree form), with an option to see doubles in their respective folder/subfolder, with the normal editing functions? Since ... that would ultimately be darn helpful? Especially when implemented DIRECTLY into Firefox, so no additional tools are needed (add-ons) since these never have what I actually need.

I have a 700+ Bookmarks backup file, which says all. Far too many bookmarks to sift through, manually, without decent tools, thus the need to do it "one at a time".

Thank you very much.

I just had a Mozilla/Firefox update. After it was done, Firefox opened. So far so good..... When it opened, the very first thing I noticed is that my bookmarks button was not on my toolbar. The second thing I noticed is that all my bookmarks are gone. GONE!! I use and count on these bookmarks daily, and not they are nowhere to be found.

WHY? This is not the first time that Firefox has had an update and has changed my settings and lost things. Updating is one thing, but there is no reason why Firefox should be changing settings - and now, in this case, wiped my bookmarks clean.

Any help? I'm frustrated and angered that years of bookmarks are gone...... Can anyone help me? Thank you.
