How to collapse bookmarks folders on Android ?

Hello all,

I have my bookmarks synced between android and desktop. On my desktop, I have literally hundreds of folders and subfolders.

When i'm on Android, and want to save a bookmark in one of my folders, the list of all folders and subfolders show up expanded (uncollapsed).

When they are expanded, it is almost impossible to find the folder i need. I have to scroll down dozens of "pages" of folders and subfolders everytime I simply want to bookmark a page in the right folder.

Please see the image attached. This is only a tiny portion of the list. It goes on like that for dozens of pages.

Is there any solution for that ?

The simple solution would be that Firefox collapses all the folders by default, and when we click on one it expands. Basically what is done on most systems of folder/subfolders.

Kind regards,

Adrien

Hello, I reinstalled the Firefox application, I wanted to log into my account but forgot the password, decided to restore it, reset the password, logged in and synchronized, but the synchronization did not give any results, all passwords and bookmarks disappeared. I saw a warning that each password is attached to a specific account and some data may not be restored, but I did not think that ALL data would be lost. Is there no way to bring them back? Thank you.

Can I create a bookmark for an HTML file in my download folder? indicates local storage is accessible. Maybe it was once upon a time, but the method provided no longer works. I once had several html files in my download directory and I don't know how to access them now.

I currently make extensive use of the Keyword field in some of my bookmarks on Firefox Desktop to search specific websites like Wikipedia, Google and specialized websites with their own search fields. However, I can't find this functionality in Firefox for Android.

Is there a way to enable this functionality in Firefox for Android? If not, are there any plans to implement this functionality in future?

I need to do the simplest thing. I see a web page I want to get back to later. I bookmark it. Later today or tomorrow or whatever I try to find it. And that is borderline impossible. It's not something I categorize or file away in well defined folders for future reference. I just want to read it later. It it's go e, lost in no particular order in a cast list of bookmarks. All I want is to find these fairly recent bookmarks, read, and delete. Is that simplest of actions not possible?

I never understood why FF eliminated the “open with” option within Android. So as a work around I bookmarked my files by navigating to “file:///storage/emulated/0/Download/”. But now you can no longer navigate to “file:///storage/emulated/0/Download/”, it appears blank. My bookmarked files at these locations return a blank screen as well. Why does FF continue to make it more difficult to open local storage? How can I bookmark an HTML file saved on local storage?

I'm using the Firefox Sync to sync my bookmarks between my windows desktop and mobile. No problems with the sync itself, but on mobile, I have to click Menu / Bookmarks / Desktop Bookmarks / Bookmarks Menu to see my bookmarks. For a feature that is supposed to provide convenience, this seems to be very inconvenient.

Is there any way to get to my sync'd bookmarks faster on Android?

I would like to have a link to a website on my android home screen. I know the function "Add to Home screen" (exactly "Installer" in french) but only the domain seems to be saved. I would like to save a full URL with some query parameters, in my case defining which layers of a map are displayed: https://map.geo.admin.ch/?lang=en&topic=schneesport&bgLayer=ch.swisstopo.pixelkarte-grau&layers=ch.swisstopo.pixelkarte-farbe-winter,ch.swisstopo.hangneigung-ueber_30,ch.swisstopo-karto.hangneigung,ch.bafu.wrz-jagdbanngebiete_select,ch.bafu.wrz-wildruhezonen_portal,ch.bazl.gebirgslandeplaetze,ch.swisstopo.schneeschuhwandern,ch.swisstopo-karto.schneeschuhrouten,ch.swisstopo-karto.skitouren,ch.swisstopo.skitourenkarte-50.metadata,ch.bav.haltestellen-oev&layers_opacity=0.85,0.45,0.2,0.6,0.6,1,0.7,0.8,0.35,1,1&layers_visibility=false,true,false,false,false,false,true,true,true,false,false&E=2675278.63&N=1197132.53&zoom=6.3547385717792695&catalogNodes=2352

By the way, is it possible to define the name of the shortcut? Renaming a bookmark as on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-add-shortcut-website-android#mobile::m85 doesn't work (any more). The long tip or the 3 dots have no "add shortcut" option and looking at "share" neither have such possibility.

I have Android 84.1.1 on Android 11

Since the "upgrade" a few months back bookmarks are really awkward to access. They should be quickly accessible on the start page. But someone thought it would be a good idea to break it. This new version is supposedly "customizable" but only within a narrow limited set of options not including adding bookmarks to start page.

In general the new version is awkward and buggy (just crashed twice and reopened with closed tabs open). I just wish I could roll back to the old version.

I want to add a bookmark to a URL on my android home page. I found an answer on this site stating that I had to choose page on the menu from the page I want to bookmark. but there is non such option in the menu. On another post I found that it was possible from the bookmark screen, but on this screen the context menu of each entry only contains edit, copy, share, open .. end delete, but no option to add to home.

so how ?
