Hi Team,

I have been using firefox for 2 years now at work, logged in to sync the passwords and bookmarks. To my knowledge it seemed to be working fine.

I reimaged my laptop last week and reinstalled firefox and logged into my account and it did not download any of my saved bookmarks and saved passwords.

I suspect it may have been caused by a partially failed initial install of Firefox which may have wiped the data from the account.

Does mozilla keep backups of the profile data? If they do, could my account be restored to the state it was in on Thursday 28 March 2024?

Thanks Socrates

In French ('English underneath) J'essaye d'organizer mes marque pages 1)Je tape sur supprimer, la page revient à la prochaine application 2)Je crée un dossier. Dans des versions anterieures de Firefox, on pouvait simplement bouger les fiches avec controle>fleche jusqu'a le dossier. (Il n,y avait pas le separateur <autres marques pages>) Avant l'essai de reorganization, <autres marques pages> contenait la plupart des fiches, les marques pages normales (bouton >>je presume) contenait seulement une demi douzaine choisis au hazard. Apres l'installation des dossiers, <autres marque pages> contient seulement les dossiers, bouton >> toutes les fiches. Il est impossible de transferer de bouton >> jusqu'a <autres marque pages>, afin d'incluire les fiches dans un dossier.

I am trying to organize my bookmarks. 1)I press the delete button, the page comes back next time I open the computer 2)I create a file folder. In previous versions of Firefox ,there was no separator between bookmarks (button>> I assume) and <other bookmarks>, and one could transfer a file into a folder using control and the arrow. Before I tried to organize the bookmarks, <other bookmarks>for some reason contained nearly all my files, the button >> only a few chosen at hazard. Having created file folders, <other bookmarks> contains the folders, button >> all the files. It is impossible to transfer from button>> into the folders in <other bookmarks>.

The scrolling speed in Bookmarks folders when hovering over top or bottom of list is too fast. When trying to drag a new bookmark to a Sub-folder in the Bookmarks Toolbar, and you need to scroll down in the list of folders, you hover over the bottom of the displayed drop-down. But it scrolls so fast that you go past the folder you are trying to drag n drop the new bookmark into. So you hover over the top of the list and it scrolls up so fast that again, you go past the folder you are looking for. Is there any way to control this scrolling speed? It's my only gripe about the BEST BROWSER. I have thousands of Bookmarks and hundreds of Folders. PLEASE HELP Thanks Regards

How to transfer bookmarks from earlier version to new version of FF?

Hi, I've had Firefox 64 bit running on Windows for a while and recently was given a newer machine where I installed a newer version of the OS. I put the old HDD's as slaves in this new machine. So the old FF is in the slave machine.

I have also installed new Firefox on this new Win10 LTSC, but when I go looking in my now slave HDD I can see FF, but cannot see any bookmarks. Additionally, when I run the FF executable in the old HDD it still runs the new FF, without the old bookmarks.

So how can I extract the old bookmarks on the older FF? Without withdrawing the now slave HDD and making it a master again? As it's now missing most of the OS files too.

Thank you!

bookmarks text white on white

Firefox updated to 106.0.2 (64-bit). When I click the sidebar icon, my bookmarks appear on the browser's left side as expected. However the text is not visible. If I hover my mouse over an icon is the list for a bookmark, the link appears. Also not all the bookmark icons appear. There are gaps between bookmarks on the list. Again, I have to hover my mouse over those gaps for bookmark info to appear. How do I make my bookmark list readable/usable again?

Some of my bookmarks have only the generic "globe" icon even I can see the icon on the "tab" when I open the webpage. I also tried:

  • to remove the bookmark and add it back
  • to install some add-ins to customize the icon
  • to clear cache
  • to use different computer

One of the examples with missing icon in bookmarks is "https://app.powerbi.com/home". When i tried different browser (Edge, Chrome), it worked there.

I have four active Firefox windows, each with quite a few tabs. I have been closing and re-opening Firefox with no issue until today. Earlier this week I updated my Mac OS to Ventura 13.5, and Firefox was still operating normally after the installation (closing and re-opening with all windows and tabs intact).

Today however, when I restarted Firefox, no windows opened automatically. I closed and restarted a few times, and finally one window opened intact; however the other three windows (still dispalyed on the "Windows" menu) refuse to open. When I look at my Firefox app on my iPhone, it also shows all the tabs intact.

What can I do to get these to open? I am running Firefox version 115.0.3.

I run Firefox 115.0.3 on Windows 10, desktop. The main menu in Firefox has a "recent bookmark" listed and I would like to remove it from the menu. I thought it would be a simple matter of going into bookmark menu settings or the settings from the main menu, but it is not. When I was unable to resolve it, I did an internet search and was unable to find a straight forward answer. As one fix suggested, I tried turning off "history" to no avail. I've attached an image which shows "recent bookmarks" in the main menu of Firefox browser. I don't feel it is necessary to have recent bookmarks in the main menu when it is easily access from the bookmark icon. Perhaps I've overlooked an option in settings. Can someone please help resolve the issue.

An automatic update of Firefox which resulted in a "quit/create new profile" choice has removed all my bookmarks

Of the four profiles stored in "about:profile" three are identical (ie. have only the default bookmarks stored) and one, generates a "quit/create new profile" message.

The "bookmarksbackup" folder (in /home/user/.Mozilla/Firefox/zs1jki8t.default) is empty.

The "import/backup" option (in Manage Bookmarks) offers nothing to choose. There is no 'list of dated automatic backups.'

Firefox did not create an "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop.

Browser privacy "strict". "Never remember history" was selected.

I have the latest version of Firefox for Windows 10. I accidentally sorted my bookmarks by name (hundreds of them in a folder called Other Bookmarks) and want to go back to unsorted...but no matter what I do, even if I check the "unsorted" option, the bookmarks stay in the "sort by name" alphabetized mode.

How do I fix this?

Thank you

Nick
