Today I clicked on the library icon, chose 'bookmarks', and discovered that there is no option to view the menu of bookmarks that could previously be opened and viewed in a sidebar. Now I can choose 'search bookmarks' but will have to remember what all I've saved and cannot scroll through to see what's there. This does not work for me! Is there a way back to the menu?

I cannot take a screenshot, the drop down menu closes when attempting this.

For some reason all my toolbar bookmarks have disappeared from the toolbar line below the search box. View Bookmarks Toolbar is checked 'Always Show'. I tried customizing and restoring defaults but still don't show, although the toolbar line disappeared and option was changed from Always Show to 'Only Show In New Tab'

I am using Private Browsing, although it does same even if I don't. So frustrating

What happened? Was a new version released 4/12/2021?

When i click on the google maps icon (google uk home page>dots in top right hand conrner>google maps icon)or type google maps into the search field then click on the google maps link I end up on the Sheffield Hallam University log in page (a bookmark from a while ago). This has started happening in the last few weeks.

If I use Edge then everything happens as expected and google maps opens.

I have tried refreshing firefox and disabling add-ons, neither works.

Using Windows 10 home V20H2, upto date firefox.

I can't figure out how to adjust the column sizes in the bookmarks library, it's frozen in place even after I've restarted my computer. I can click the top of the column to sort and I can add other columns (tags, visit count etc.), I just can't adjust the size.

Has anyone else encountered this problem and found a solution?

Hi,

searching for bookmarks (with sidebar) is no problem. There are several cases where I look, if something or similar had been bookmarked already. With this I want to avoid doubling/tripling/'moreling' bookmarks. But if I find something already bookmarked, I do not know in my about 1000 bookmarks where the bookmark is located. I tried to show properties of the found bookmark but it does not tell where it is placed. So I would have to look manually about 100 folders to find where the bookmark is located.

The most easy solution I think, would be indicating the place of the bookmark when showing settings of bookmark. On hovering over the found bookmark in a third line of popup could be told the location of this bookmark and would be visually more pleasant I think.

Else I have to put the bookmark doubled in a more visible location and delete the bookmark found by search. This workaround works but is not intuitive and bothersome (and costs much more time).

As this solution would be easy to implement, I hope, this can be implemented 'soon'. I think, this would help many others, too. (At least I heard from several others in my environment, that they miss such a thing.)

Not forgetting, thanks for the great browser, Niels

Hi all, Once and a while, suddenly, bookmarks can´t be saved any longer. So I restart Firefox and all is ok again. This happens perhaps twice a month. - Existing Bookmarks can be opened, but can´t be moved in the structure. - This issue exists since many Firefox versions. - The *.sqlite files are not write protected. - All Add Ons are switched off.

I have to close for each new start of Firefox all windows and so I am loosing the workflow :-(. Does anybody know about this issue? Many thanks Achim

Hello, I have my Firefox bookmarks separated by folders according to the theme. Every time I use the 'search bookmarks' option, firefox shows me all the hypotheses based on my search but hides the folders and doesn’t show me in which folder the bookmark I looked for is located. This way, I always have to do a search because I still don't know what folder it is in unless I remember it again or browse through all the folders until I find it. Is there any way to do this? Thank you.

I have the bookmarks tool bar open with the ability to click on the two arrows on the right to see additional bookmarks. I have recently tried to bookmark some links like I always do and they don't show up in the toolbar. Anyone else have this problem? I did not change any settings. Did the recent update change some settings I don't know about or is this a bug. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!!!

My computer was updated with the latest linux and the latest firefox browser. I want to create folders in my bookmarks. All the help answers say to go to Bookmarks and click on 'Menu'. That does not come up as an option. All I get is: Show all bookmarks; bookmark this page; bookmarks toolbar; other bookmarks. I can't find anything similar in tools, edit, or file. I also don't get 'Edit Bookmarks' like was in the last edition I had.

Recently, I opened up the Firefox browser and it prompted me to create a new profile. I reopened the browser 2-3 more times and the same thing happened. I created a new profile. My bookmarks immediately disappeared. When I went to look for my old profiles, they all had disappeared, also. Firefox has been updated recently, and so has Windows 10. I have an older (2013) Toshiba laptop. Any suggestions for getting profiles and/or bookmarks back?
