As of a few days ago whenever I start Firefox the window appears with the Bookmarks sidebar panel already opened. I click the "X" on the sidebar and it will close - until the next time I start Firefox. If I choose Menu->View->Sidebar->Bookmarks and uncheck it the panel will close - until the next time I start Firefox. No matter how the Bookmarks sidebar is closed, it will always reappear when Firefox is restarted. Even if I switch to some other sidebar, Bookmarks will replace it on startup.

I've searched about:config and found no setting which seems to control sidebar behavior on startup.

I assume this is the result of some recent update. Is there no longer a way to permanently disable the Bookmarks sidebar?

Hey y'all, I just closed Firefox and tried to open in up again a few minutes later. The icon in my taskbar threw an error saying it couldn't find the executable. I typed Firefox into the run dialog and FF came up but has no icons on the home screen, zeroed out my bookmarks bar below the URL field and deleted all my bookmarks (100s).

I went into the User/../../Mozilla folder system and found a folder called bookmarksBackup or something similar. It was completely empty.

Any chance these were saved somewhere else as well?

Thanks

I'm using Firefox 100 on Win10 and can't save any bookmarks. They do NOT appear under the App Data Profile, which would not be acceptable even if they were. This change has made it impossible for me to continue using Firefox, unless I want to go back to Win7.

I simply need Bookmarks to work the way they did before!

Thank you for your time.

Before I took my computer to a repair facility and had to reinstall Firefox, my recent activity bar had all the websites I use and wanted quick access to along one lovely line. Now I have a bunch of "suggested" crap Firefox must be getting paid for along my recent activity bar. I've never visited these pages and selecting the menu trying to dismiss them doesn't work. How do I eliminate the sponsored sites and get what I want along the recent activity bar?

This is a moan more than a question. About every six months or so my bookmark sidebar disappears because i have clicked Control and B without meaning to. And that is how to get it back again. Except, I never remember and search all over the page (View, Options etc) without finding how to get it back. So I eventually do a search for how to recover it and find all the archived guides from when other people had the same problem and the same question and ther same frustration. So my moan/quesion is this: why the blankety blank, doesn't Firefox add something into the menu (View or Options or somewhere) that says "Show toolbar permanently". Would save all this frsutration and irritation. The impression I get is that Mozilla thinks we should not want to have the menu on screen all the time. But that is the problem with users! We have our own way of doing things! Please!

When I use Microsoft Edge Browser in the top row it shows my Bookmarks and to the left it also shows an icon that allows you to jump back to the Edge Browser.

In Mozilla Firefox there is no icon to take you back to the Firefox browser. Occasionally a site will Hi-Jack you and trying to use the back arrow to get back to the Browser does not work. The only solution is to shut down the Firefox browser and then restart it again.

I would rather use Firefox as it support HTML 5 audio which is not supported in Microsoft Edge.

Can you please advise.

Many thanks

Hello, I upgraded my windows 8.1 system with firefox on it to windows 10. The windows 10 upgrade saved my windows 8.1 files. I installed firefox on windows 10. I deleted the files created by the install in the folder 'profiles'. When I copy my old firefox profile contents into that firefox profile folder, firefox does not pickup my bookmarks and extensions as I had hoped. Is it possible to get firefox to recognize my old profile contents? Thanks, Doug

My bookmarks list are different. If I go to(click on) "View history, saved bookmarks, and more" then click on "Bookmarks" I get just a few of my bookmarks, no folders but some bookmarks from the folders. It say's "Recent bookmarks" but they're not.

If I click on "Other Bookmarks" on the bookmarks toolbar I get ALL my bookmarks and folders.

Not a biggy but I kind of miss have the ability to open a side panel with all my bookmarks and folders.

Is there any way to sync the two bookmark menus? I would prefer the first "Bookmarks" to show as the "Other Bookmarks".

I am not too good with the computer and have just starting using Firefox. I will do my best to describe my question so please bar with me. I have 2 rows of websites that I frequent...actually only using the first row and 5 spaces in the second row. When I go to a different website Firefox is automatically adding that website to one of the boxes in the second row which I do not want. How do I stop this? Question 2...using Ebay as an example...if I keep searching on Ebay and have looked at lets say 5 different pages how do I go back to the home screen without having to hit the back button 6 times?

Hi there,

All the icons on the taskbar when I open up Firefox have disappeared... and I now have the same "world" type symbol for everything. I've Googled and followed instructions, but I'm not seeing what the instructions are telling me to look for, so I can't make the changes.

Can you please send me a step-by-step on how to resolve this. I can't even 'open a page in a new tab'. That function has also disappeared.  ?????

I don't know what could have caused this. Would appreciate your help.

Cheers, Carolyn

Running Firefox 89.0, Win10. I usually bookmark all tabs in a window to a named folder under Bookmarks Menu, for example Folder1, Folder2, Folder3, etc. Recently, the dialog was stuck to a previous folder, lets say Folder2, as the default, instead of the normal default of "Bookmarks Menu". If I bookmark Folder4, it will want to put it under Folder2 as a subfolder, unless I manually change it to Bookmarks Menu, but the next time the default will go back to Folder2. After trying to manually set the default back to Bookmarks Menu, without success, I tried renaming Folder2, thinking the default will go back to Bookmarks Menu. This didn't work, Firefox chose the new Folder2 name automatically. So next I opened all the tabs in Folder2, deleted the Folder2 in the bookmarks manager, thinking that if Firefox couldn't find Folder2, it would fallback to the old default of Bookmarks Menu. Now when I try to bookmark anything, the save dialog is blank and the only thing I can click is the cancel button. How do I fix this? I have hundreds of tabs open, since the session manager I used to use is no longer supported, I was in the process of saving windows into bookmark folders. I'm worried that restarting Firefox will lose some of recent changes to my open windows/tabs state since the last time Firefox "autosaved?" my session

Thanks
