Missing Bookmarks Bar after Import

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?

The article explaining a particular add-on seems to say a Firefox add-on will chose what file to put a new bookmark in, and/or rearrange bookmarks. This seems to say that rather than allowing you to make a choice. It will even rearrange the current folders or content. Am I misinterpreting? Thanks!

I just bought a new computer with Windows 11 and downloaded the latest version of Firefox. I have the Bookmarks Toolbar set to always show and it is showing, but I cannot drag bookmarks to the toolbar. Nor can I create folders on the Toolbar. I can drag bookmarks and create folders in the Bookmarks Toolbar in the Bookmarks drop down menu, but they do not show up on the Toolbar itself. Help please.

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.

Thank you!

The Firefox Sidebar is a very nice feature that I use to provide favorite bookmarks to an non-computer-savvy elderly parent. Unfortunately many times the "X" in the upper right of the sidebar is accidentally clicked which results in a phone call or remote login session to recover. It would be helpful if there was an option to "lock" the sidebar so it cannot be closed by an unsavvy user. In addition, it would be valuable if the sidebar lock prevented the user from collapsing/expanding (changing) the bookmark lists in the sidebar. Once they are "locked" (by a computer proficient person), no changes are allowed to the sidebar by a careless user.
