I have noticed 3 new bookmarks I never added for 2 websites I've visited recently show up in my bookmarks bar.

I did a scan with Avast One (free version) and it says no viruses or malware found

Any thoughts on what's adding the 3 bookmarks?

Thanks.

I have had to create a new Firefox on one of my computers. I have imported my bookmarks, but there appears to be no way to import the Bookmark Toolbar. This is tiresome. So I wonder if I can use Sync to do the job? My Bookmark Toolbar exists on my other PC. Is it safe simply to use Sync to do the job of importing the Bookmark Toolbar to my new Firefox? I use Windows 10.

Have to keep scrolling bookmarks folders from the top instead of being able to pick up where I left off LIKE IT USED TO BE.

Also, instead of being able to right click and open bookmarks in new tabs to try and speed things up, it immediately switches to the new tab, which means having to scroll from the top of the folder AGAIN anyway. And yes, I'm well aware of the "switch to it immediately" option in the settings menu, and that box is UNCHECKED in my settings.

I'm not the only one complaining about this time waster, yet no replies from support on any of the threads.

I have many bookmark folders with many items in each folder. Some folders have many,many items in those individual folders. To scroll down the many items I have in a folder takes time. Is there any shortcut I can use to get to the end of the list in a folder without scrolling down for five minutes to get to the end of a list? I have looked in the Firefox website but I have not seen this question. I have many folders that have a lot of items I have bookmarked. Thanks for any help you can give.

why are obsolete articles archived?

i searched for how to bookmark an entire window. google gave me: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/94180 as well as https://support.mozilla.org/eu/questions/1144799 there are probaby many others.

1. both are archived. 2. both are obsolete. Unless I am doing something wrong, in the BOOKMARKS menu there no longer exists "BOOKMARK ALL TABS"

So, why, when an article is archived is it not marked as to what versions of FF it applies? another way to think of this: Why archive a question that WILL ALWAYS BE A RELEVANT QUESTION?

and what is worse: why does searching for "bookmark all tabs" come up empty searching FF help?

Another way: Stop changing FF so much !!!! It is a pain the you-know-what.

And, why does searching for "BOOKMARK ALL TABS" in FF doc come up empty? No wonder the same questions are asked over and over again.

Using the menu line, if I click Bookmark>bookmark current tab, it used to bring up a box where I could edit the tab name and location of where to save that tab. Now, in Dec 2023, it bookmarks it but does not bring up this box. In order to see where the bookmark is, I have to again select Bookmark, EDIT this bookmark. Is there a setting I need to now adjust to bring up that box when bookmarking for the first time? I have W10 and updated Firefox.

Bookmarks fetching titles when dragged and dropped by mouse

Hello people,

Lately, I've been having the problem with bookmars.

When I want to save my favourite pages to specific folders I created for different areas, I always used the method where you click in panel with www address e.g. https://support.mozilla.org/, the whole address is now selected and I drag that addres to specific folder of mine. When placed, the bookmark was saved to that folder, but in addition to that, Mozila browser also fetched bookmark title with title of the page.

So after drag-and-dropping the link https://support.mozilla.org/ I ended up with bookmark in my folder, that looked like this: "Get Support | Mozilla Support"

Now when I do the same procedure, I just copy the link addres itself. So it ends up like this: "https://support.mozilla.org"

You get the idea. )Where did the feature of fetching titles dissapear? Can it be returned back?

I've been using bookmarks this way (drag-and-drop by mouse to specific folder) since I can remember. And this problem occured just week ago. It helps me to speed up my process faster than using the star icon. And now I dont even know what I saved when I look at my folder and try to make sence of it the next day, because everything I can see is link addresses.

I tried it on many computers and many diferent systems Win10 11 etc and I still get the same problem. I tried it with reinstalling Firefox, with deafult settings, in normal or inkognito mode. Nothing works.

Any help? Can this be fixed?

Best regars, J

Hello,

My old PC crashed and I want to transfer my bookmarks from the old hard drive to my new PC running windows 11. I have unlocked hidden files, but when I ran drive:\Users\username\AppData\roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles nothing came up. I then ran places.sqlite and a list of places.sqlite appeared with some files having -wal &-shm after them?

I believe from reading here this is where my bookmarks are?

If so, how do I transfer them to my existing PC hard drive to use please? Many thanks Chris

Hello,

I am a computer technician currently trying to write a small python script that will clear a users cache, cookies, and history in Firefox on a Mac.

From what I can tell, both the history and bookmarks for a user is saved in one file named "places" (specifically under "/Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/[jargon].default-release/places.sqlite")

Is there a way to clear just the history for a user, that doesn't go through the browser GUI? I would really like to avoid mixing CLT with Selenium or something of that sort with python.

Any information is welcome!

Thank you,

my Other Bookmarks is no longer in my bookmarks toolbar. I have two laptops and the other one is perfect. I tried sycing many times, I did a restore (which I shouldn't have) but nothing makes them reappear. While I can access these bookmarks from the menu bar, I want to see it in my bookmarks toolbar. It did not fall off into my customized overflow either. Whaaaatttt is going on? I need to put it back asap without spending hours trying to make this simple thing happen. Also, why did it disappear? And why won't a sync bring it back?

I installed the latest version of Firefox browser and now my bookmarks and passwords are gone.How can I get them back or can I go back to before the update to the previous version to get everything back. I'm disabled and I rely on my computer to stay in touch with everything and I can't remember all my bookmarks and passwords.

See screenshots here I would post them publicly but I'm not allowed to post publicly on imgur anymore after getting so many downvotes for questioning the sacred firefox's memory usage. Nice group of people (eyeroll).
