I cannot rename saved Bookmarks. I can go through the process but after finishing, the Bookmark is NOT renamed in the Bookmarks list.

This is very inconvenient. This needs to be fixed. I am using a Samsung Galaxy A12 phone.

Another unrelated question is concerning coping and pasting URLS. I can't paste them elsewhere but I guess that needs to be addressed separetly.

Botched Android bookmark backup

I have no idea how or when my Android got an old version of my bookmarks, but they've been somewhat useful though more and more out of date. They don't sync, and I've never seen instructions that are clear enough to feel confident trying. I finally tried tonight and botched it pretty badly. Instead of my Android syncing with my desktop bookmarks, my desktop suddenly contained a whole bunch of old bookmarks, but they didn't exactly match the old set on my phone either. And now my phone has some very new bookmarks, but it also has folders I long ago deleted that WERE NOT THERE before I tried to sync today. So I have no clue obviously.

I did just revert to yesterday's backup on my desktop ... but that doesn't fix my Android. Can someone help me sync ONCE in the right direction and then set this to happen automatically going forward?

Firefox 87.0.0-rc.1

I have a bookmark that I created to an online Bible. I have to create and edit the bookmark, because as soon as I open it, it redirects me to whatever my previous reading location was. The URL I end up with might look like this.

https://www.esv.org/Matthew+8/

Where the URL I want bookmarked needs to just be "https://www.esv.org/".

So I create and edit the bookmark, I have what I want. Whenever I open it, it redirects me to the correct last location.

Now I want to put this bookmark on my home screen. How do I do it?

I see where I can "Add to Home screen" in the menu, but this nets me a home screen button with the entire URL that will always return me to that specific location, not the edited URL that I want.

I hope that makes sense. Thanks.

This is not possible in the newest version.

Or is there another way to do that, or did i missed a setting?

Thanks and sunny greatings from Vienna.

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.

When I open firefox, I click on "bookmarks". This opens "desktop bookmarks". When I click on that, it opens 3 others: Bookmark menu Bookmark toolbar Other bookmarks If I click on "bookmark toolbar", it opens "bookmarks". After all of this, I click on bookmarks and it FINALLY opens my bookmark list. Why do I have to go through so many links just to open my list? What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it to only show bookmarks/my list? I have an android tablet and phone. The problem only occurs with android, not with my windows 10 desktop.

Thanks.

Hi,

I've a bookmark of type http://forum.example.com/forum/search.php?do=getnew When opened it changes to https://forum.example.com/forum/search.php?searchid=(everytime different id)

I want to pin the first url to top sites, but I can only add "open" urls, so I get always the second url added to top sites - and I see no way to edit the top site's url. So is there a way to add the bookmark to top sites directly without opening it?

Can you please help?

Kind regards, Thomas
