My computer laptop is bit outdated. I will get a new laptop soon. However, I do have some problems with my cellphone. Will be doing Factory Reset this weekend or later. But, I need to save my bookmark on my cellphone. Is there a better way than not be able to use export.

Hi there, I recently downgraded Firefox on my Android (5.1.1), as the new versions of the app became to get heavy.

I have logged in with my Account and am now trying to get the bookmarks synced. I have no Desktop right now to pair. The bookmarks and the Account are only available on my iPad, where FF is logged in and has the bookmarks synced.

Any ideas how I can fix this? Thanks for any help and regards, Dan

I got a new phone and installed Firefox for Android, and tried to import my bookmarks, but I only have a few of them showing. I have a huge number of bookmarks and I don't want to lose them. Is there any way to recover my bookmarks? I have no access to the previous phone because the charger is warped and the battery is swollen. Thank you.

Good morning everyone. I find managing bookmarks on Firefox for Android extremely difficult. To open a bookmark I have to click on bookmarks, desktop bookmarks, bookmarks bar, favorites bar and choose the bookmark. A very long journey. Furthermore, once I have opened a bookmark and subsequently want to open another one I have to repeat the same very long procedure, Firefox does not resume from the folder where I opened the last bookmark, as happens in other browsers. I don't know if I explained myself. Can it be remedied somehow?

I have synced my bookmarks from my desktop Firefox to Firefox on my Android phone and tablet. If I bookmark something on my tablet, how do I move the bookmark into a desktop folder? I tried creating a bookmark on my tablet, but I can't seem to move it from my tablet to my desktop. I've looked at a help article which helped me create the bookmark, but I tried their saving procedure and had no success. Right now, I save the email containing the link I want to bookmark, then access the email on my desktop and save the bookmark there. How do I save the bookmark directly from the tablet into my desktop folders?

When I open my bookmarks on Android it always defaults back to the top level of my bookmarks which is very irritating. I often read pages that are located under the same bookmark folder. It would be nice if Firefox would remember the bookmark folder I used last like every other browser does.

When trying to open a bookmarked site, for example "https://mstdn.social/@noelreports", it suggests the site up until having typed in "noe". So, I can type in "n", "o" and "e" and get it suggested all the time. But as soon as "l" is added, the suggestion disappears. But this "l" is part of both the page title and the address, so that is really strange. Very irregularly, when I delete the last letter and retype it, the bookmark suddenly appears. On the synced Windows 10 installation of Firefox, everything works flawlessly.

So i was browsing google to find any solution with android Firefox and bookmarks. It's 2023 and it's still impossible to move bookmarks in it. Is this some kind of a joke? So the only option is to move to Opera i guess? Can i move my bookmarks to it on my phone?
