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.

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?
