The latest Firefox update forces my bookmarks folder to be double spaced between bookmarks and folders making it too large for my page. I have to use the navigation arrows to access all of it's folders.. and the folders inside the folders too. When I used to open bookmarks it was about half my screen high now it's a screen and a half. I've temp returned to the previous version but would like to keep updating to keep up with security patches.

Good afternoon. My Firefox has been updated to the new version but I noticed that the font size in my bookmarks dropdown menu has increased. I would prefer to make it smaller as it used to all fit in one column without the need to scroll. Could someone tell me how, or if this can be done with the new version? Thanks and hope to hear back soon.

Prior to update this morning I had a top with about 50 items and a folder just for car shopping which has lots of items. Updated to 91.0.2 and now only the shopping URLs are shown. Manage gets me nothing. The folder C:\Users\Xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\6dbbz7gb.default-release\bookmarkbackups most recent item is 4 months ago but an extract errors out.

Is it possible to get back to my old bookmarks? If so, how?

I have 3 PCs, all running Firefox, all signed in to the same account. All say they are syncing. But one is not in fact syncing bookmarks, and reports it was last connected 2 years ago.

Clearly my 3 PCs are somehow connected, since they all show up in "connected services". But though the one I am now typing on routinely reports that it has successfully synced, it hasn't in fact connected to the 2 other PC's Firefoxes for the past 2 years (according to the image uploaded below). I somewhat doubt that actually, but the fact is that the 2 other PCs have identical bookmarks sets and are clearly syncing, but this one has a different bookmark set.

How to force it to connect? Disconnect it and reconnect it? Delete Firefox and reinstall?

Hello,

I love the tagging bookmarks feature in Firefox. But unfortunately it does not work properly like explained in the help docs.

I search for tags by typing '[+] + [Tag]'. This works for me but I only can search for 10 entries maximum.

Why there is this limitation to bookmark entries in my search bar? And how can I see all my tagged entries even when there are more than 10?

Kind regards Benni

I have asked before, but it appears that it is not possible to stop Firefox updating; whatever advice I am given just turns out to be legacy which is no longer applicable or the work of fantasists that does nothing at all. So now I am on 98.0.2 whether I wanted to or not. And I do not! So can someone tell me why I have to go through complicated procedures in order to get the bookmarks working as before. I am also no longer able to use the Logitech Media Server advanced settings as the default address no longer opens in Firefox. This is why I don't want to update EVER. Every time Firefox updates it changes things just for the sake of changing and takes ages to put everything back to a working state. And for why? Just to appease those that believe their ability to program gives them some god like ability which we should be praising without question. All the time the updates are claimed to be for security reasons. I can see no reason why changing the appearance of bookmarks and making them display as several double spaced columns relates in any way to making the software more secure. Perhaps one of these gods would inform us mere mortals what the purpose of deliberately pissing off users serves? Also, I can see no reason why Logitech Media Server would now be considered as a security risk when I have been using it for more than a decade. Once again I am forced to use Edge until such time that Firefox release another version to put right yet another software screw up. Why is no one apparently in charge of the software release, why have they not heard of beta testing and why can't they issue a repair to rectify their own incompetence?

I needed to move a lot of bookmarks to my laptop in order for it to have the same links as my desktop PC.

First I tried export to HTML and importing the HTML to Firefox on the laptop but it didn't change the bookmarks.

Then I tried backing up the bookmarks on the desktop PC and Restoring them on the laptop. It warned me that it was going to erase all bookmarks and replace them with the bookmarks from the .json file I supplied. Since this is what I wanted to do, I proceeded.

I closed the Bookmark Manager and checked the bookmarks and they were unchanged. I tried restarting Firefox and even rebooting but it will not overwrite the previous bookmarks even though the .json file is listed correctly as the new one I moved from my desktop PC.

I'm going to uninstall Firefox and reinstall it after deleting any directories under Mozilla but before I do that I thought I'd ask and see if anyone else has had this problem.

I have the latest version on Win10 and Firefox 91.0.2 64 bit.

I needed to have Windows 10 wiped and reinstalled from my laptop, and the guy who did it cloned my files to save everything. I saw instructions on another post on how to find the bookmarks file under Profile, but it didn't do anything after confirming that it would wipe out all current bookmarks. What am I doing wrong?
