OK. someone kindly offered me a new-to-me computer and claimed that they had transferred everything to the newish one. Well, what they did was take my umpteen gazillion desktop shortcuts and place them all in "bookmarks menu". EEK.` That's way too many. So I exported them to an html file/link/firefox internet shortcut on the desktop called "bookmarks.html". Worked swell. However, the bookmarks menu went along. It no longer appears under"bookmarks" on the menu bar. I was able to get it onto the toolbar. (star in tray). If I click on that, and then select "bookmarks sidebar", what appears in the sidebar is perfect. Just like new. But on the menu bar, on the dropdown menu under "bookmarks", no "bookmarks menu".

I can live with this BUT I really don't want to BECAUSE there are bizillion bookmarks in the bookmarks menu. I need to send them someplace (or gather them into a NEW folder, so that I can add newly created bookmarks and be all neat and organized.

How do I put the "bookmarks menu" that shows on the sidebar back under "bookmarks" ??? How do I get the bizillion bookmarks off of "bookmarks menu"? Is there a "select all", then "delete"? I don't want to lose the ones in the html folder on the desktop. I am happy with them being in an html folder on my desktop. Should I change the name of the html link to XYZ.html?

I just do not understand how the sidebar can look perfect but the menu bar doesn't.

Help, please !

My Bookmarks will not load up? It's like the links are dead? It isn't just Bookmarks either. I'm having trouble getting my WP sites to respond when I click on various things that I am working on. I hate to do this, but I will have to try another browser, if I cannot resolve this quickly.

I usually work with my bookmarks side bar open all the time. Until recently whenever I bookmarked a page it wourld show at the bottom of the 'other bookmarks' section. Now, I seem to have a 'recently bookmarked' section where everything goes. (Possibly I always had this section - just never used it!). If I move a newly arrived bookmark either to one of my saving folders or to or the 'other bookmarks' and then delete it from the 'recently bookmarked' section the bookmark in the folder is deleted as well. I'd like to go back to my simple life please..............

Is there a way to use "search engine shortcut" without query just to go to a website of the appropriate search-engine?

So as, for example, after writing "g" (or "g"+space) in the search bar and pressing Enter, firefox opened the url "https://www.google.com/search?q=" (or something like that).

It used to work this way in older versions of Firefox (before 83), but since then firefox just searches "g" with the default search engine. Or it "eats" the shortcut (after pressing space) and turns it into a "blue/gray search engine label" but it does not allow me to go to the search engine web without writing some query that I need to remove afterwards.

I was using this feature as a sort of bookmark shortcuts to "custom" search engine websites (I'm using tens of them for debugging purposes and often need to fill in some additional parameters to the "text" query - often even to an "empty query").

The closest I got googling was probably "browser.urlbar.update2.emptySearchBehavior" - but it either does not work already, does not do what I'm expecting or I did not come up with the correct value for it.

Somehow 'totaladblock.com' has become 'entangled' with my Firefox browser. When I am using Firefox it keeps coming up with messages inviting me take up offers to block adverts. These messages obscure what is on the screen: I can reject them but they come back in about 10 seconds. I have not been able to find a way of permanently eliminating them. Please Help. Regards, W.

Importing Bookmarks from Safari - Folders Don't Appear

Hello All:

I want to import my bookmarks from Safari to Firefox but strange things are happening.

I go to the File menu, scroll down to "Import From Another Browser" and select "Safari."

I click OK and Firefox works for a while and then says it's done with the import.

However, when I then go to "Manage Bookmarks" in Firefox I can't find any of the folders from Safari!

The weird thing is, those bookmarks are SOMEWHERE in Firefox, because when I search for a particular bookmark which I know was originally in Safari but NOT Firefox (some rather obscure website) IT DOES APPEAR IN THE FIREFOX SEARCH!

I've done this with about 10 websites, so I know they exist somewhere in Firefox.

But none of the folders where they originally resided in Safari seem to appear in Firefox. The only way I seem to be able to access those bookmarks is to go to the Search bar and search for them.

Does anyone have any thoughts about how I can find the folders imported from Safari?

Thanks!

First, I'm just gonna say this because I want Mozilla to see it: I HATE "ask the community" when I have a question! Passing the buck to your customers rather than providing customer service for a product YOU provide is beyond lame! >:( If you provide a product, then YOU should also provide the customer service!

So here is my issue: my computer died recently. Dead, wouldn't boot, nothing.

I have a new computer now. If I sign into Firefox, I thought because I had signed in under my name and account that all my bookmarks would be there, but they are NOT! WHY?! Please don't tell me they are lost! It shouldn't matter what computer I use; if I'm signed into Firefox my bookmarks should all be there!!!!  :( >:(
