Sorry: I incorrectly marked this problemsent Aug 5 as solved, but it isn't My book marks folder has a complete duplicate copy immediately following the original. I tried deleting individual entries from each copy but they also deleted in the other copy. I've attached two Print Screens. Original copy appears to be under Bk Mks Toolbar - See PrintScreen 1 PrintScreen 2 shows duplicate commencing again at 'Recently Bookmarked' but not sure whether in Menu, or another folder. How do I delete the copy w/ losing the original?

Hello, Has something changed recently in how bookmarks are backed up in HTML format ? In mid-May I backed up my bookmarks, and the resulting file was about 13.8 Meg in length. I was using whichever Firefox version was current at the time. I recently upgraded to the latest version (103.0.1, 64-bit, Windows 10). Today when I did a backup the file size was only 7.7 Meg. I have even more bookmarks now than back in May, so I'm confused about why the backup file is half the size. Is this normal or is there a problem somewhere ? Thanks in Advance

When creating a new bookmark, there is an arrow button named "Show all the bookmarks folders" that lets you choose the destination. I have managed to make the tree bigger and remove the huge thumbnail by modifying userChrome.css, but having the destination tree expanded by default would be so much more usable. The addon Default Bookmark Folder Default Bookmark Folder has a search feature but it's slower than just having the full tree from the beginning. Thank you for your help!

So, Firefox automatically updated (to 103.0.1), and somehow or other the sidebar with all the bookmarks disappeared. Normally, this would take me about 10 seconds to find where the function was hidden, and turn it back on. No big deal--just a petty nuisance. Now, however, this function has been hidden so well, that I have no clue where to look.

I understand that interfaces change, and not everyone works the same way, but that's no excuse for flat out taking away a tool that some people (no matter how small a minority) still use on a regular basis, just in the dubious name of 'fashion.' Leave well enough alone. If I wanted my tools changed and moved on an irregular and capricious basis, I'd stick to Microsoft.

Now, please tell me how to get my bookmarks side bar back, or put together an update that makes it functional again.

Hi

When I save bookmark in e.g. folder XYZ which already holds e.g. 65 links, the new bookmark is not displayed. Same goes for general saving where either bookmark is not displayed, or in few cases it wasn't even saved. wth is going on with your bookmark system? FF is honestly the only browser which has unreliable bookmark system. It's like FF on a whim stops saving bookmarks, or choose to not display more than X links in given folder. This is just absurd.

Firefox 103.0.1 is using apple-touch-icon for bookmarks rather than new favicon.svg

To support dark mode for desktop users, I’ve added SVG versions of my favicon.ico with lighter and darker colors and use @media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) to have better contrast against light and dark backgrounds.

Firefox now (as of 103.0.1) supports SVG favicons (there was a (bug)https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1772632, but it's now fixed), but for the History list and the Bookmarks, Firefox is using the apple-touch-icon.

Testing – To confirm how Firefox handles SVG favicons and bookmarks, I used a new profile:

  • Set Windows to dark mode
  • Create new Firefox profile and open a new browser window
  • Navigated to one of my (sites)https://www.sbwfc.co.kr/
  • Bookmarked the site
  • Switch to light mode and repeat the navigation and bookmark
  • In both cases, the bookmark is the same – it’s the apple-touch-icon (see attached portions of the screen capture and the apple-touch-icon.png).

Using the apple-touch-icon on the Bookmarks bar has multiple issues:

  • Most touch-icons have a solid background color while many favicons use transparency, resulting in the touch-icon not looking exactly like the favicon.
  • Most touch-icons include a border area around the edge while most favicons go right up to the edge. When the image is shrunk down to 16px (CSS type pixels), because of the border area, the area for the working image is only 12px square.
  • Shrinking a 180x180 pixel PNG image down to 16px (or 32px for high-resolution displays) does lose quite a bit of detail. Most SVG favicons are designed to work well at 16 and 32px.

For sites that only have an ICO favicon, Firefox will use that image for the bookmark and history. (Firefox also seems to continue to use the ICO favicon if a site was previously bookmarked.)

Safari only uses ICO favicons (not (SVG)https://caniuse.com/link-icon-svg), so designers do need to be sure their ICO designs work with light and dark backgrounds (Apple’s logo is a #888888 gray, so is visible against a light or dark background, although not ideal).

Chrome and Edge use SVG favicons for the tab, history, and bookmarks, and, if the user switches their configuration, the icons on the bookmark bar can be switched from light to dark or vis-versa by refreshing the page. (Chrome seems to always use the initial light or dark version when clicking into the address bar).

This is probably how Firefox is intended to work, but it does seem to be a less-than-desirable solution. If it’s too complicated to use the SVG favicon for the bookmark icon (the way Chromium based browsers do), then would it be possible to only use the ICO favicon for the tab icon and the bookmark (like Safari and Internet Explorer)? Repurposing the apple-touch-icon doesn’t seem like a good solution.

Note: I did try changing the order of the links, putting the apple-touch-icon first instead of last, but it didn’t make any difference.

The code for icons for my site is:

`<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico?v=2" sizes="any">` `<link rel="icon" href="favicon.svg?v=2" type="image/svg+xml">` `<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="sbf-apple-touch-icon.png">` `<link rel="manifest" href="manifest.json">`

Thanks

Firefox keeps suggesting deleted bookmarks when I type in the address/search bar. Bookmarks I deleted 5+ months ago.

I have removed the bookmarks from all my computers and phones. I reset my firefox account. Completely deleted the Firefox application and sub-files and folders from computers and mobile and re-installed fresh and clean copies and the deleted bookmarks are still sugested. Even installed on a completely new PC and they still come up.

I have rechecked my bookmark lists and they are not in there.

Any help on how to stop firefox recommending deleted bookmarks would be very helpful.

Thanks R

I have my bookmarks toolbar organized by folders. Within the folders, the bookmarks won't stay sorted. I can sort them in the library window, but a few seconds later, as I am watching, they resort themselves seemingly randomly. The same order is shown in the browser sidebar and the library window, and it continues to change every few seconds.

I use Firefox on both my Windows PC and my iPhone, I turned on syncing for a while but turning it off and restarting the browser does not stop this annoying behavior.

In addition, some bookmarks duplicate themselves and I end up with hundreds of the same bookmark. This behavior seems to have ceased when I turned of syncing, maybe this is a second problem?

How can I stop this and keep them sorted and synced, while avoiding the hundreds of duplicated bookmarks?

Hello, My FF export to html backup stops half-way ! Here is the problem: Untill last June 2022 this backup was doing fine to reach the usual more than 65.000 mb. & gradually building up with every bookmark I add. But last month all that changed when the option started to stop half-way. Meaning it stopped at the level of more than 17.000 mb !!! Which is unbelievably LOW. Today Aug 3, 2022, I retried the operation on my usb stick. And FF export gave me the same results (with the little difference of the few bookmarks I added in the meantime). I didn't find any solution in the FF help pages to help me settle this problem. So any anything to fix this will be appreciated. I'm running windows 10 home & FF 103.0.1 (32 bit)

Background; Yesterday I had corrupted file in Windows 10. Windows 10 wouldn't open and the solution was to reinstall Windows but save my data but lose the apps. When I reinstalled Firefox, all of my book marks were gone.

I have gone to the support articles provided and pulled and tried to locate my "old" profile. I couldn't my last attempt was to go the Profiles Manager ( about Profiles). I see the Profile default and I see the Profile default release. I have switched between the two and neither are My Old Profile.

The question: I want to be sure I have exhausted all possibilities in locating my Old Profile, before i start the manual rebuild process?

Also I have by data backed up in Carbonite, but I don't know if is backed up there or how to find it.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
