I've noticed the bookmark symbol (star) is missing from my version of Firefox for Android. Until I can recover it I cannot save bookmarks anymore.

It is nowhere to be seen. Not on the browser bar, address bar, nowhere. Where has it gone? Where do I find it (if anywhere)?

I've just opened my android tablet for the first time today to find Firefox has updated. Initially I thought I'd opened the wrong browser as it's completely different. I can't find my bookmarks or help for example. I just seem to have a blank screen. Not impressed as there was no warning and no help.

The howto have inadequate written instructions and too large useless photographs. The howtos are too short and force users to search for the next step because the howtos fail to give adequate instructions.

"Quickly find any bookmark on your device. Tap the address bar."

"select Bookmarks from the Top Sites screen "

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-bookmarks-firefox-android?esab=a&s=bookmarks&r=1&as=s#w_how-do-i-find-my-bookmarks_2

Whereas taping the address bar does not bring up bookmarks. There is no instructions on how to bring p the top sites screen.

Incomplete instructions for finding start screen: "Tap on the title bar, tap on the Bookmarks tab, and finally tap on the Firefox Start bookmark to access the Firefox start screen."

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pin-sites-firefox-android-start-screenshot

Whereas, taping on the title bar does not bring up the bookmarks tab nor the start screen.

Taping on the title bar brings up: Share, copy address, edit site settings and add to home screen. Edit site settings brings up nothing.

I am going around in vicious circles simply trying to find my bookmarks! I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times but it didn't make a difference.

Both Nexus 7 and HTC Evo 3d with latest version of Firefox are no longer syncing bookmarks between multiple PC desktops or between each other. Top Sites and History sync as they should from the PC's to the Android devices. Only the Bookmarks are not syncing.

Firefox on the PC's sync Bookmarks between each other as they should. Adding a Bookmark on the mobile devices does not show up under the Mobile Bookmarks on the PC's. Or visa versa.

I have removed and reinstalled Firefox. Unlinked and relinked sync on all devices. This just started to happen in the last few days.

I created a bookmark to the guardian front page and added a page shortcut from my launcher. When I tap on it, the site opens in a different Firefox, with no address bar, menus or auto rotation. Using the app switcher I can see that browser as a different app from the regular browser and switch back and forth. If I open the info tab, both browsers are Firefox. If it's related to custom tabs, I have those switched off already. I absolutely don't care for this crippled Firefox and would like to disable it completely. Suggestions? Thanks

Hi,

I had Firefox and Firefox Beta installed on my Android phone. This prevented me syncing bookmarks with my desktop Firefox.

I decided to remove all Android versions and reinstall.

First I backed up the Beta profile since this contained the bookmarks I want.


I cannot find the bookmarks within this profile. AFAIK there is no places.sqlite. Has the filename changed? My version was beta Firefox 19

I have nearly 5000 bookmarks on PC Firefox in a complex folder structure. They appear to sync with Firefox Android, but minus the folders, so completely unusable. Are there plans to add folder support on Android? Ironically, exporting them to Chrome on the PC syncs them perfectly to Chrome Android.

I have Mozilla on my PC and now on my Elipses (spelled correctly ?) tablet (from Verizon). I have created an account in order to sync the devices. BUT - how can I see the bookmarks I have created (from browsing, research and the various folders on my PC) on my tablet?

The various help articles I have read don't address this issue. Is it even possible to see these bookmarks from one device to another? (all devices have the most recent updates) Thanks! Carolynn

I've been using firefox on my laptop for sometime now & think its better than other browsers. So I thought I'd try it on my android phone so I could sync bookmarks etc.... However, it is completely different. I can't find a home page button anywhere & trying to find a bookmark takes me a week. Why is it so ridiculously laid out? Its pathetic, can anyone tell me how I can get it to look like the standard version or where all the icons are hidden? If not I'll just have to uninstall it.
