Zotero - How to get it to work with FF bookmarks

Some people recommended here using Zotero in order to keep the functionality of the "Description" field in bookmarks which was taken away after v. 62. Unfortunately a) There is zero information here on actually using it and achieving any sort of acceptable results re: bookmarks, and b) It's complicated and it doesn't even import the bookmarks file.

I installed Zotero v 5. Have to also install Zotero for Firefox extension. This is hidden in documentation (one or the other does basically nothing, have to install both). I tried to import FF bookmarks.html, it proceeded to use 50% of CPU resources, memory used by the program went up to 800 MB, and after 15 minutes the import bar was at 0%. I tried to import the bookmarks.json file, it doesn't support it.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

I have reinstalled my Debian, keeping of course my `/home`. New Firefox version is `68.12.0esr`. A new profile has been created, but I need the old one which I can set as default in the profile manager at the url `about:profiles`, but Firefox tells me "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history.....". So, it seems I need to install the same version of Firefox I had before, but I don't know which one it was, and I would like to avoid to make many trials.

Is there a mean to know which Firefox version is associated to a given profile?

Please Quit The Constant Update Windows until the newer Firefox versions actually work for W7!!!! Remember , W7 computers are not able to get the updates for make whatever is making all site buttons and switches disapprear. To new Firefox is also like Malware, very time consuming to uninstall, and I only can go to the latest full version I had saved. I have been a loyal user and contributer since the beginning, so Please Make Forefox Polite Again!

Hi guys, I'm on Firefox QUantum 68.11.Oesr and I have a problem with my searches. NO matter what I do, it keeps taking me to Yahoo search which I hate but I can't figure out how to fix that. I've had that happen before and a buddy helped me fix it but I can't get hold of him.

Google is set in the options so that's not the problem. This is driving me nuts 'cause I search for stuff frequently and I hate Yahoo.

Thanks

George

My Firefox account has only one email address. I want to change it. When I access the "Change Primnary Email Address on Firefox Accounts" I'm advised I need to have a secondary email address. I don't have one. The process then says I have to add one. When I go to add an address it directs me to the Firefox Icon in upper right where I'm supposed to get a drop down menu that will do the addition. When I access the icon, I get a SYNC option and nothing else. Would someone be able to help me out please.

Hi,

I had asked already this question and it didn't get any answer. It is pretty annoying so I will post it again.

When I search in the address bar ONE word and tap enter Firefox tries to go to this page (without the .com) it takes a while and eventually shows the google results.

It is very tedious

I have to select the search option in the drop down menu.

Also no search recomendations

Attached a screenshot

What can I do to search directly?

thanks

I am no longer able to add or delete my bookmarks. When I right click delete for a bookmark, nothing happens. When I click to add a bookmark, nothing happens. This still occurs when I start firefox in safe mode. I have tried turning on sync to see if I could edit my bookmarks from my mobile, but the bookmarks failed to sync. I do not have any add-ons. I currently am on a linux OS installed on a macbook. I did not have this problem until the past month or so.

I made a quick recording showing the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZt_9jyDhos

I get the same problems in Firefox on both Debian with Cinnamon (on my desktop) and Linux Mint Debian Edition (on my laptop). As you can see in the video, I've tried clearing cache, cookies, history, and extensions, but no luck.

Other solutions I've tried since making the video:

- disabled PIA VPN - created a new Firefox profile - turned off DNS prefetch - turned off IPV6

(I reverted each of these after they didn't work.)

So i have old Bookmarks.

very old.

The Bookmarks file dated 2014. What version the Firefox was that generated that files i do not know.

If i import those .json files there are none Bookmarks imported.....

The new shiny fancy format is json packed with lz4. Can i deactivate this? I do not want compression! Bookmarks are text, text can be packed, but no not in modern times. Modern Times require speed not space. Or in other words: I want the bookmarks seachable with my editor.... I have space for a few TB for bookmarks.
