Firefox has just updated to version 89.0. The Bookmarks Toolbar is no longer compact so I'm having to scroll up and down lots, which is irritating!

How do I change the Bookmarks toolbar menu back to a compact list of bookmarks, please?

Thank you.

Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

How do I restore my recent desktop bookmarks that disappeared with FF 89.0? The history shows sites visited on my other devices, not on my MacBookPro, except for from a couple of weeks ago and after the update yesterday. My travel searches and saved bookmarks from the past couple of weeks are all gone.

There are 2 problems. I don't know maybe they are related so I'm presenting them both. In the past both processes have worked with no problems. Windows 8.1, latest FireFox.

First: Bookmarks Backup Bookmarks tab Show all bookmarks Library opens Import and Backup Backup Bookmarks backup filename window opens pick destination folder - Desktop File name box: bookmarks-2021-06-10.json Save

Only there isn't a file saved on my Desktop. And it's not my computer messing up. I took a snapshot of the Library Bookmarks backup filename window and saved it to the desktop and it worked fine. I thought maybe if I used File Explorer it could find the file bookmarks-2021-06-10.json. It did, but it's still not on the Desktop where I could save it to an external hard drive for a Backup. See attached files.

Second: Bookmarks delete files/folders. I can move files and folders around, just deleting or removing them is a problem.

Method A. Bookmarks tab right click on link or folder I want to delete click Remove Bookmark nothing happens

or Method B. Bookmarks tab Show all Bookmarks Library window opens right click on file/folder want to delete Drop down menu, click Remove Bookmark

or Method C. Bookmarks tab Show all Bookmarks Library window opens choose file to delete Organize drop down menu, click Delete

This is where it gets confusing. For methods B and C sometimes it will delete, sometimes not. Thinking about it, mostly not. I dont know why the difference, I don't think I did anything different to delete one but not the other.

When I open the Bookmarks tab again, I can't tell if the list is the same or not. I don't think it's changed.

I worked really hard on this and then I messed up and lost everything I'd done. So, I started all over, but I don't know if this is as accurate as the first. I hope so.

Please, I'm an old lady simple answers in plain English are always appreciated.

Hello all,

How do I increase the font size of my bookmarks library? I'm not talking about when I click on the Bookmarks manu and get the drop down menu listing them, but rather when I click on the Bookmarks menu and then choose: 'Show all Bookmarks" and the Library opens with all my Bookmarks in a table--how do I increase the font size here? It's too small and difficult to read currently.

Thank you.

Hi all,

I ask for the following Settings option:

[ ] Ask confirmation for bookmarks / folders moving or deleting

I had erroneously deleted a bookmark and run mad to find again the link. I regularly backup bookmarks, keeping multiple versions, however I have noticed that I cannot navigate backups and pick up the link. The only available option is to restore the whole backup deleting current bookmarks. In addition I am not confident that the Restore will restore also the favicons so I do not want to try.

All my bookmarks are arranged in folders and they are a lot. Firefox should protect accidental moving / deleting with a pop up confirmation message.

Thanks

This evening, while browsing bookmarks, all of my bookmark folders slowly emptied, from the top down, and all the bookmarks are now below the folders in no particular order. What caused this???? How do I get the original bookmark folders with bookmarks in them? I tried to restore from the most recent bookmark backup, and initially the bookmarks were in their folders, but slowly they all left the folders and showed up at the bottom of the bookmarks listing. I have a LOT of bookmarks, and want them back in their folders. Help!!!

When I was asked to update Firefox to the latest version something has changed on my menu bar and my bookmarks. First, my menu bar changed colors to a very dull gray whereas before it was either black or dark blue. Second, all my bookmark list is now double spaced which I don't like.

Is this something in the latest version and will it be corrected or give me instructions to change back to the previous look that I've described.

Thanks, BR-yat ejleche@hotmail.com
