Hi all,

A few days ago my phone got stolen and with that thousands of Firefox bookmarks.

IF I hadn't had a tablet with which I sync those bookmarks that is, so all is good. But...

I'm planning to get rid of that very tablet and then won't have an other device to sync with any longer. I think that means that if my phone gets stolen next time I have to say goodbye to all Firefox bookmarks as well. But since society is more and more turning into single device use with smartphones becoming so powerful, is there really no way to deal with this? Can Firefox really be the last company on Earth without the ability to back up settings and bookmarks in the cloud? I mean, I'm getting crazy that every single app has it's own cloud backup, but that's still a LOT better than not having the possibility at all - especially for a security/privacy minded company like Mozilla that's... well... crazy...

My question to avoid total failure next time: Is there ANY way I can have those bookmarks exported and/or automatically backed up? Or can I somehow sync them with a non-existing device and then sync back a week later when I have a new phone?

I'm truly struggling with this one as I don't want to part with Firefox after 1.5 decades. However, in the end my bookmarks are more important to me than my browser, so if I HAVE to move on to stay secure then I'm afraid I will have to go that road... :-(

Your help is much appreciated!

After reading several questions and concerns regarding getting the Bookmarks folder onto the home page in Firefox for Android, some over a year ago, I am frustrated to say the least that nothing has changed or been addressed at all. It is so frustrating and time consuming to open a new tab to then have to hit the back button to be able to then select the menu button, then bookmarks, then the folder, then the bookmark. Customization options are really not really helpful options. Maybe an option in the Open Screen: option could be homepage with bookmarks folder/folders. Or, just the Bookmarks folder. Sync across the platforms is great but the function on the app side is soooo frustrating. Please address this sooner than later.....

I just installed Firefox on my Android, and whenever I want to get to my Bookmarks, I have to go to Menu > Desktop Bookmarks > Bookmarks Toolbar. This means at least four precise taps to get to any of my sites.

How can I make it so I ONLY have to tap Menu > Bookmarks?

Unable to organize bookmarks in Android

When trying to organize bookmarks into folders, it seems we have to seperatly edit each one, one at a time. When you select multiple existing bookmarks, the only options appear to be opening them in tabs or deleting them. Nor does it seem possible to move them by drag/drop into folders, or to rearrange the order of the folders. This makes it practically impossible to try and organize your bookmarks.

Also, when you are in the bookmarks area and visit a site from there, you cannot open it in a new tab and leave the bookmark area intact, or go "back" from the site to return to the bookmarks area. You are doomed to perpetually be tossed back to the generic new start area, and have to start all over again trying to reach your bookmarks/folders. You don't even have the option of changing the order in which the bookmarks are shown. They start with oldest and you must scroll and scroll down through the evergrowing list.

How do we organize and keep using our bookmarks, a Firefox system we have been using for years? I asked these same questions over a year ago, and no one bothered to reply. Nor have any of these issues been resolved. Why is Firefox making itself less and less useful, harder and harder to use? Please keep in mind that many people no longer have regular PCs, just tablets, and have no choice but to use Android. Older versions of Android in fact, because their devices are predestined to stop upgrading. Every so often Firefox changes itself, adding new features whose functionallity was already covered by bookmarks (collections, top sites,) and removing it's most useful parts (saving to pdf, bookmark managment and easy access, etc.) How are these decisions even made? I look forward to the day when an update truly results in a better version. Thank you for your time.

I am trying very hard to make Firefox the default browser on all of my platforms. The problem I am having is with Firefox on Android. My bookmarks from my Windows platform have sync'd, but I have to drill down 3 or 4 levels on Firefox Android to find them every time I want to use a bookmark. Is there any way to organize my sync'd bookmarks so they appear at the TOP level of the bookmarks (so I don't have to drill down to find them)?
