Hello,

I'm using Firefox Nightly and it just updated to 84.0a1 (2020-10-30) (64-bit). With this update, the "Other Bookmarks" folder appears on the Bookmarks Toolbar. It's situated on the far right, after the 2 right arrows that show the rest on the bookmarks from the toolbar. I've looked into the settings to see if this new addition can be hidden or removed, but I couldn't find anything. Can somebody tell me how I can hide it ?

Thank you, Flavius

I want to set up a bunch of bookmarks in FF [84.0.1] and I cannot find out what the acceptable bookmark format is. [the bookmarks will come from someone else so I'd like to write a program to generate the appropriate import file]. I've tried edit an exported HTML file and then importing that [modified] file and it doesn't seem to work at all, so I'm clearly not understanding what has to be in the file so it'll work.

My plan/hope was to be able create a file with

<DL><P>
   <DT> FOLDERNAME 
   <DL> <P>
        <DT> <A HREF=URL> name for the bookmark</a>
       <DT> <A HREF=URL> name for trhe bookmakr</a>
               ...
    </DL>
</DL>

Is that even vaguely close to something that'll work?

I have noticed that the favicons on a website are not being created when I bookmark a new site or when I use a previous bookmark, they are not updating.

They are showing as a world globe when first created.

They used to always work so I can only assume that one of the Firefox updates has stopped this working so can someone provide any information to help get this fixed?

Thanks.

Is there any setting that I can change to force Firefox to open bookmarks in the same tab that I have open when clicking on a bookmark? I hope this makes sense. In other words, right now I'm on the Mozilla support page writing this. If I click on a bookmark in the bookmarks bar, it always opens a new tab. I want to force it to stay on this tab and go to the bookmark. Thanks.

Version 84.0.2. Windows 10. I inadvertently opened a second FF window which had no tabs and no bookmarks toolbar. I closed FF which had many open tabs and many bookmarks toolbar items. Now all tabs are lost and all toolbar entries are lost. On reopening FF, only the FF with no tabs and no bookmarks toolbar will open. I have searched and read many "solutions", but nothing that I can get to work. Does anybody actually know what can be done or that nothing can be done. I had not yet reinstalled my general backup program prior to this so there is no other backup and all I have to rely on is FF alone. Are at least the bookmarks toolbar items stored somewhere even if the tabs are not recoverable?

All bookmarks are there except for bookmarks toolbar items.

I would like to restore both tabs and the bookmarks toolbar if possible. If anything can be done, can anyone articulate some clear instructions?

Hello helpers! I have lost my bookmarks and several add-ons after latest install (77.0.1). I can't find old profiles to use and restoring to an older bookmarks backup doesn't work either; I get an error message "unable to process the backup file - but it does at least see the last relevant version from 10.6.2020.

To compound the problem, whist working my way through several solutions offered on these forums, I hit the Refresh Firefox button, which created an Old Firefox Data folder on my desktop - but seems to only contains the new stuff after today's upgrade) AND I also reset my Firefox password and got the message that Personal Data will be lost so that has added to the problem. Basically a massive mess!

Can I revert to the older Version of Firefox or using an old computer backup or is there another way to fix this?? It's nearly 3000 bookmarks going way back to 2014 - I'd be gutted to lose it all.

I appreciate any help - thanks in advance! Nicole

After using CCleaner, on opening FireFox I discovered an unwanted, 'other bookmarks' tab sitting on my toolbar. It won't move (click & drag), and I want rid of it. I like having the double right arrow at the edge of the toolbar like it use to be. When I did a full browser 'refresh', it disappeared!

However, on using CCleaner again, the darn thing reappeared.

How to I tell FireFox that I would like to be in charge of how it displayed, rather than some errant code that someone else thinks i want?

I imported bookmarks from Safari on my Macbook Pro. When I click on the 'Bookmarks Menu' and 'Other Bookmarks' about half of the folders do not show any bookmarks. However, when I open the Bookmarks through the sidebar, everything shows up....all folders and contents. So all my bookmarks were imported but half of the folders' contents do not show up if I go through the Bookmarks and Other Bookmarks menu. Going through the menu is easier so I hope someone has a solution. Thanks.

I have version 85.0.1 (64 bit) on Win 10. I just created Bookmark folders and started moving individual bookmarks into the appropriate folders. How do I select multiple bookmarks so I can move a bunch at a time to it's folder? I tried CTL-CLICK but that doesn't select but rather opens the link. When I open "Show all Bookmarks it lists only the bookmark folders (which I can open and do multiple selection). But why aren't the bookmarks not in folders showing up? I can see them in to bookmark toolbar and in the >> sidebar. Have hundreds of bookmarks I collected- want to move some want to delete some. Selecting multiple for drag and drop would make my project go unbelievably faster.

"Show all bookmarks" seems to have vanished. How can I get it back, so I can back up my bookmarks? Or is there another way to do that? (Should have been clear about this: no problem finding the library symbol, opening the bookmarks toolbar or opening the bookmarks sidebar. However, the "show all bookmarks" entry is missing from the sidebar. The main headers on the sidebar are "bookmarks toolbar", "bookmarks menu", and "other bookmarks". "Show all bookmarks" is not a header and I cannot find it in any of the others. If I search for it in "search bookmarks", nothing emerges.)

I have keyword search bookmarks defined (as described here). I can use them in the address bar, but in the bookmark manager, I can no longer find them. I want to edit a keyword search as the service provider changed their domain structure, but I can't find it any more. Did something change? (Firefox 77.0.1 on Windows 10.)

To clarify, I am not trying to search for my keyword search bookmarks. These "smart bookmarks" just up and disappeared (completely) from the Bookmark Manager view, as in even drilling down didn't reveal them.

Since refreshing Firefox, my bookmarks have disappeard from the bookmarks toolbar, there's nothing there. But Bookmarks are correctly selected in 'view', and also in 'configure', and the list of all bookmarks shows my usual bookmarks located in the toolbar section. I have no idea what to do about this. I attach a screenshot showing the empty area under the addrss bar.
