When I launch FF, I want two pages to open. Inside the options, home, I can set multiple pages to open. That's fine. Unless I'm missing something though, I don't have the option to have a single site as home page. I suggest this for a future update for FF. Chome has this option.

I have been using Firefox Sync for a while between my desktop and laptop. Both repeatedly remove the same bookmark folder from my bookmarks toolbar containing links to my home network NAS services. A single folder containing 5 bookmarks. Even when the laptop is off the folder on my desktop disappears, starting the laptop without networking (no way to sync) the folder will also be missing. Is there an audit trail of what is removing or modifying bookmarks? These are the only 2 devices using Sync. This same folder existed normally on both computers prior to enabling sync. I recreate it and it disappears within a day.

Hello, After the last update I now have to click on the Bookmark link twice in order to place my saved page in the correct folder

Why?

I used to be able to click on the "Bookmark this page and was given drop down options as to which folder I wanted the page I was bookmarking to go.

Now I have to click on the book mark twice to save the page and then again to place the page in a certain file folder.

This is very frustrating and time consuming.

Hi there,

I just moved to another notebook after the past one dead, and I have to recover my past bookmarks from an external hdd. I just tried to convert the .json file into an .html one, but the problem is that with this way I have to manually reput on the library thousands of websites by clicking the link, while I'm looking for an option to automatically put all the websites in the library. Is it possible to do so?

Thank you

Two Updates ago, FF deleted years of Bookmarks, Passwords and Add-ons, and maybe more that I'm not aware of. Only a small handful of Bookmarks were left. Is there any way to get them back? And, no, FF did not create a file on my desktop with the old FF settings, or whatever it was called.

Corrupted toolbar bookmark locks up PC in Firefox 79

Clicking on a TV Guide bookmark on the toolbar displays a screen supposedly from Windows 10 support which says PC has been corrupted by virus and wants my license code. Screen cannot be closed and keyboard doesn't work so can't do alt/cntl/del to cancel task. Had to power off PC and power it back up to free things up.

All other bookmarks on the toolbar worked fine. Performed a Windows update and McAfee virus scan but those did not correct the problem. Finally fixed it by deleting that bookmark and then recreating it using Google. Now works fine.

This is similar to a 'red screen' problem in Firefox from a long time back.

Unable to send any diagnostic information since entire PC is locked.

I am not able to add or remove bookmarks. The bookmarks library is empty. I can't restore to any back up bookmarks. I restarted in safe mode. No bookmarks. I reset Firefox. No bookmarks. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. No bookmarks. I did a Revo Uninstall and cleared the registry. No bookmarks. I deleted the localstore.rdf. No bookmarks. This is kinda a deal breaker for me. I might have to go to Chrome or IE.

I had about 100 folders w/bookmarks last week and by mistake I imported about 500 other folders dated over several months ago. I discovered I don't need those 500 folders. How do I get ride of all of them without doing it individually? I want to avoid trying to delete them individually folder by folder because it would just be too time consuming. Is there a way to highlight them all (500) and the delete all at once? thank you I await your answer.

Perhaps I can put first 100 folders altogether in another single folder, say X. And then export X as a back up. Then somehow remove all 600 folders plus X all at once some how completely emptying the bookmark listings and import back the backed up folder X. Can that be done?
