It's very difficult to say I'm not an idiot, right now... I was having problems deleting my Google search history. It wouldn't give me an option for all or today or anything.

I went to delete my Firefox search history and had no intention of deleting my bookmarks, nor my collections.

I had saved many things related to my stroke recovery that apparently are now a devastating loss.

I don't see any option for import or Recovery. I intentionally never synced to my PC.

I don't think there is any hope to recovery the losses.

Any suggestions are appreciated, but going forward from this point.... PLEASE tell me how to properly backup ALL my Firefox information... Mainly my bookmarks and collections and how to avoid whatever I accidentally chose that caused my loss of bookmarks and collections.

I can't tell you the shock and now profound sadness that this has caused. My stroke recovery IS my life and the information and sources were vitally important to me on a daily basis.

Thank you for any help, whatsoever. I'm just in disbelief, and it's nobody's fault but my own. I may have just been too fatigued during the process.

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)?
