So, the old problem of double spacing is back. Luckily only on bookmarks menu and sidebar, but even so it's annoying.

Has there been any progress with finding a solution for this perennial nuisance?

Also, the userchrome.css fixes I've used previously don't seem to be working. What's the latest fix to be used?

The designers seem to be intent on making this as painful as possible. You'd think you could just open them, at least in text form. Wasn't that possible before? I can in Notepad if I want to look at hundreds of pages of gibberish that would take days to copy and paste over. In my updated Firefox it offers a Restore function but to do that I have to wipe out all my existing Bookmarks. Who dreams of this stuff? Why would anyone sane want to do that?

I imported my bookmarks from an HTML file but they are not showing even after I close and restart the browser. Where are my bookmarks? And furthermore, your instructions for importing them in the first place did not work for me because the sequence and pictures did not match what I saw in my browser. I played around with it until I found the import part. And yet, no bookmarks.

Just got a new laptop. Am trying to export the bookmarks from the old laptop to the new laptop. The backup (.json) says it cannot process the file. The .html just does nothing. Firefox version is the same on both laptops. When I open the .html on my old laptop, I can see all of my bookmarks. When I open it on my new laptop, it seems to be blank, even though it's clearly not. I've tried several times. Version on both laptops is 103.0.2 64 bit. HELP!!

Trying to help someone who has lost their bookmarks in firefox. I've tried going to the bookmark auto backups, then to restore, choose a backup. I get an error message "unable to process the backup file" when I choose any of the backups from the list. I've checked and found only the default profile on the system.

Tried restoring through menu several different bookmark dates, different size/link amounts, loops and never completes.

External backup in future, best way???

Other issue is copying link from a Google tab, to a Facebook tab, have about a 10-20-second delay (a block) before I can access the Facebook tab to paste the link - This worked fine until about a month ago. Opera work fine.

Should I forced FF to complete SANDBOX mode to restore functionality??? Switch to DEVELOPER version??? Try to GO-BACK MUCH OLDER VERSION???

Thanks,

Tim

Sorry: I incorrectly marked this problemsent Aug 5 as solved, but it isn't My book marks folder has a complete duplicate copy immediately following the original. I tried deleting individual entries from each copy but they also deleted in the other copy. I've attached two Print Screens. Original copy appears to be under Bk Mks Toolbar - See PrintScreen 1 PrintScreen 2 shows duplicate commencing again at 'Recently Bookmarked' but not sure whether in Menu, or another folder. How do I delete the copy w/ losing the original?

Hello, Has something changed recently in how bookmarks are backed up in HTML format ? In mid-May I backed up my bookmarks, and the resulting file was about 13.8 Meg in length. I was using whichever Firefox version was current at the time. I recently upgraded to the latest version (103.0.1, 64-bit, Windows 10). Today when I did a backup the file size was only 7.7 Meg. I have even more bookmarks now than back in May, so I'm confused about why the backup file is half the size. Is this normal or is there a problem somewhere ? Thanks in Advance

So, Firefox automatically updated (to 103.0.1), and somehow or other the sidebar with all the bookmarks disappeared. Normally, this would take me about 10 seconds to find where the function was hidden, and turn it back on. No big deal--just a petty nuisance. Now, however, this function has been hidden so well, that I have no clue where to look.

I understand that interfaces change, and not everyone works the same way, but that's no excuse for flat out taking away a tool that some people (no matter how small a minority) still use on a regular basis, just in the dubious name of 'fashion.' Leave well enough alone. If I wanted my tools changed and moved on an irregular and capricious basis, I'd stick to Microsoft.

Now, please tell me how to get my bookmarks side bar back, or put together an update that makes it functional again.

Firefox keeps suggesting deleted bookmarks when I type in the address/search bar. Bookmarks I deleted 5+ months ago.

I have removed the bookmarks from all my computers and phones. I reset my firefox account. Completely deleted the Firefox application and sub-files and folders from computers and mobile and re-installed fresh and clean copies and the deleted bookmarks are still sugested. Even installed on a completely new PC and they still come up.

I have rechecked my bookmark lists and they are not in there.

Any help on how to stop firefox recommending deleted bookmarks would be very helpful.

Thanks R

Background; Yesterday I had corrupted file in Windows 10. Windows 10 wouldn't open and the solution was to reinstall Windows but save my data but lose the apps. When I reinstalled Firefox, all of my book marks were gone.

I have gone to the support articles provided and pulled and tried to locate my "old" profile. I couldn't my last attempt was to go the Profiles Manager ( about Profiles). I see the Profile default and I see the Profile default release. I have switched between the two and neither are My Old Profile.

The question: I want to be sure I have exhausted all possibilities in locating my Old Profile, before i start the manual rebuild process?

Also I have by data backed up in Carbonite, but I don't know if is backed up there or how to find it.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
