I used to be able until very recently go to MENU > LIBRARY>Bookmarks: which would 'split' giving me three (?) choices, one of which was showing a bookmark side bar. I seem to not have that choice any longer ... or do I and I just don't know how to select it? Thank you.

I want a toolbar button I can click on once that opens the Manage Bookmarks (Library) window. I want it to do the equivalent of Ctrl+Shift+O.

I'm completely aware of the Library icon, and the "Show your bookmarks" icon with the little star in the tray, but both of those require two clicks to open a separate Library window with Bookmarks selected. I once figured out how to do something similar with a bookmark to some place in About: but this opened a separate tab I then had to close and I want it to open a separate window.

I've used Firefox since at least 2007 or earlier and I still miss the little star icon (or was it a globe) that opened Organize Bookmarks. It's not laziness on my part, but it is over a decade of muscle memory I still haven't shaken. Besides, what was the advantage of making it harder to get to?

Whenever I make changes in Bookmarks Manager, they aren't applied to my bookmarks in Firefox. They are saved within the Bookmarks Manager, they just don't update to my actual bookmarks (i.e., the way my bookmarks are displayed within the Bookmarks Manager does NOT match the way my bookmarks actually show up in the browser). I have tried:

-refreshing Firefox -unchecking the box for "read-only" in the places.sqlite file (as recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-add-change-or-save-bookmarks) -deleting both the "places.sqlite" file and the "xulstore-json" file (as recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-add-change-or-save-bookmarks) -restarting my computer

This is a major issue for me and may mean I have to switch back to Chrome if I can't get it sorted. Any other suggestions on how I can fix this issue?

How to rearrange bookmarks in the Firefox Sidebar ?

When I do a search in the Sidebar, the bookmarks always appear to be in same order as they are in the main menu with the newest at the bottom of the list.

However I just added 4 new ones & 3 are at the bottom but 1 is at the top in the Sidebar. Yet all are at the bottom in the main menu. I’d like to keep all 4 grouped together but cannot drag any of them into place.

I deleted & re-saved the bookmarks. When saving, the first one added appears at the top of the Sidebar search list & the other 3 at the bottom.

Somewhere along the way, when I edited a couple of the names the top one swapped places with one of the bottom 3 in the Sidebar. Yet they’re all in their original order at the bottom of the main menu.

Any idea why the Sidebar is changing the order?

I lost all the bookmarks suddenly where i was using this browser for office work, there was no action taken from my end like deletion or any upgrade, however suddenly when i start machine today, i found all bookmarks lost. To restore backup I entered to Profile --> bookmark backup this file is extension JSONLZ4 which is not visible during restore bookmark.

This is quite important to recover these suddenly lost all bookmarks, so is there any way or support available?

Unfortunately this is first time i am facing such kind of issue, So kindly also let me know if we should trust mozilla firefox as default browser and to save bookmarks?

Thanks & Regards

I had to put in a new hard-drive into my computer that I previously was running Firefox browser on so I downloaded the Firefox back on after the new hard-drive was done. Before on my old hard-drive when I click Firefox browser and it came on, it had a ribbon across the top of the screen underneath the back arrow, forward arrow, and search URL that I used the most of in my favorites (I think it showed across the screen about 10 of my bookmarks) to click on instead of going into all my bookmarks to get. How can I put my most used bookmarks across the top of screen now instead of just clicking the "star" that show ALL my bookmarks and I have to go down to whichever one I want to use and boy do I have a bunch of bookmarks even thou they are in alphabet order? I hope someone can tell me how to do this!

Hi, In these last days, I deleted a bookmark folder or something by error. Then I found some daily backups, and I restored from the last one backup.

The next issue was that the following daily backups have less bookmarks, and doing some testing, it appears the Daily backups, now, are not including "Other Bookmarks".

It has less entries from now on.

I want to know if there is a bug, or something changed by itself. How can I fix that?

Thanks
