I want to password protect a bookmarks folder. I downloaded and switched on the "Private Bookmarks" extension which as I understand it should have created a "Private Folder" under "Other Bookmarks"...I closed/re-opened Firefox and nothing. What step am I missing in this process and how can I get this extension operational? Thanks for your assistance.

cheers, Iain.

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

A very important parent Bookmark folder disappeared again!

When I do a Search, I can find Bookmarks that are in the Parent Bookmarks folder but as I have reported before, the HUGE issue is that there is NO way to find where the parent Bookmarks folder or the Bookmarks in the parent Bookmarks folder using the Search function! How can I find the parent Bookmarks folder and where the Bookmarks are that were in the Parent Bookmarks folder?

I have added many Bookmarks since yesterday so I do not want to try to do a Restore.

I need to find the Bookmarks that disappeared soon.

I installed Win11, Firefox ESR and tried to import my bookmarks which I exported in Win10 to an HTML file. When I open the HTML file I can see the bookmarks under the Bookmarks Toolbar but these are not imported/visible. After import I can only see the Bookmarks Menu bookmarks.

What is going wrong here?

Please help me find and restore my missing bookmarks. There are hundreds of entries needed to access essential sites to pay bills, contact physicians, and much, much more. I am embarrassed to admit that there are also some adult oriented bookmarks that remind this old man about his younger life. Thank you for your understanding and help.

I just installed FF v96.0.0 and immediately noted that the background is back to being black or dark themed again for this HORRIBLE PROTON UI.... I have been using Firefox since v2 or was it v4 so long time...

Mozilla I am tired of these terrible UI changes you keep making and it needs to stop... please at least add some user config options so we can at least disable the ugly proton UI features..! as the about:config proton UI options don't work right... anymore..

I almost did not recognise my toolbar after seemingly an unattended install. It is extremely annoying with this wasteful double space harrange in the bookmarks toolbar on the browser menu. Why on earth do you want to add such large whitespace between bookmark entries ?

I opened up Mozilla and noticed that my bookmarks bar was empty and can't figure out why my bookmarks are "gone" (but still registered by Firefox), or how to put them back into my bookmarks bar. The only thing I can think of that might have caused this is that I accidentally clicked on the "Import bookmarks" button at some point during the last time I was using Firefox, but I'm not sure if that would cause my bookmarks to disappear.

Is there any way to restore my bookmarks bar?

In migrating to a new iMac, I exported my bookmarks to html and imported them to Firefox on the new iMac. That resulted in many old bookmarks appearing on the new iMac, so I looked at the contents of the html file and found very many bookmarks that I had deleted before exporting the bookmark file - many had been deleted months ago.

I keep Firefox automatically fully up to date on the release channel.

If the exported html contains more than the visible bookmarks on the Firefox that is exporting them, it's not just inconvenient but it's also a serious privacy problem.

My exported bookmark file was 1.7Mb, for no more than 100 bookmarks. What's happening here and how can I stop it happening again?
