My Firefox just updated from 95 to 96.0 and all of my bookmarks have disappeared. I have the bookmarks toolbar but everything in the Bookmarks menu is gone. If I open Firefox on my alternate PC everything is still there but that Firefox shows it is still in 95.2 but I have not restarted it to make it 96.0 I have not experienced this problem before.

I have exported the bookmarks from the alternate PC to its desktop as an HTML and as a JSON file.

Suggestions?

I am trying to increase the size of the font of our bookmarks on our MacBook Air laptop as they are hard to read on the smaller screen. I tried "zoom" and increasing font size in settings but that did not affect the bookmarks sidebar; only the primary web pages. I tried an add-on but could not get it to work. I did a few online searches and it appears to be a common issue but I could not find a solution so I thought I'd ask a question. Thanks for any advice that you can provide.

Hi, i've tried reading the existing articles but i'm not very technical and don't understand most of it. Firefox kept freezing and crashing this morning so I clicked the recommended Refresh, not realizing this would kill all my bookmarks. I have tried to restore my bookmakrs (over5,000!) using the restore method, but I get an error message saying it cannot process the request - I really don't want to lose all my bookmarks but i'm struggling with the overly technical advice i've seen, can you help please?

Hello, I have my most used bookmarks in the "Bookmark Menu" folder. The other bookmarks are in folders located in the " Other Bookmarks" folder and I have 6 links in the "Bookmarks Toolbar".

When I need to backup I use Export Bookmarks to HTML and save on PC.

Problem is that when I use Import Bookmarks from HTML, all folders are empty including Bookmarks Toolbar. All the missing links are now added to the bottom in Bookmark Menu. I now have to cut and paste the links back into the empty folders.

Why are the links not going back to the same place when importing back.

As of version 91 I think it was, around middle of 2021 (last year), in the dropdowns from the across-to-the-top bookmarks menu, the items are spaced out vertically way too much. So much space is wasted. I like the spacing they had before that version. I just want to go on record as giving feedback that I don't like it, and wish it went back to the original spacing. I have looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1346987 and know there's all sorts of weird stuff I can do to customize my Firefox to get the spacing I want, however, my point with this post is to get feedback back to the Firefox developers to see if they will consider changing it back. If posting here is not the best way to get feedback back to the developers/designers/product-owners, please let me know the best way. I couldn't find another way.

Mozilla I am tired of these terrible UI changes you keep making and it needs to stop... please at least add some user config options so we can at least disable the ugly proton UI features..! as the about:config proton UI options don't work right... anymore..

ls, Yesterday morning I had 1724 bookmarks . Last night 3448 , (1724 double). This morning Firefox completely removed from the PC and reinstalled. result: 1724 bookmarks. A few hours later again 3448. Anyone know how I can correct this? I don't think it is possible to remove the duplicate in a fast way.

To make matters worse, Waterfox mimicked its big brother .result: also double bookmarks. Sincerely, Henknan

Hi,

It's virtually impossible for me to drag and drop a bookmark into the correct folder because the folders close so quickly. Any motion of the mouse that's not completely lined up with an existing folder while trying to navigate a menu tree to a target folder causes the menu tree to close almost instantly.

This has become increasingly difficult for me as aging has impacted my accuracy with pointing devices, and made dragging and dropping bookmarks to save them virtually impossible.

I trolled through the configuration settings, searching for "menu," "bookmark," and "delay." The only seemingly appropriate setting was "ui.click_hold_context_menus.delay," but increasing that didn't appear to impact the hover-over menu close delay time as desired, even after a Firefox restart.

Please help!

Thanks,

Ray

1. topic Earlier i could edit my Firefox bookmarks in the bookmarks-list window and then i change my cursor to other place and Firefox (miraculously) saved that new modification of bookmark to bookmarks-list. Nowadays i can't do that. Actually, i can edit a bookmark but i can't save it? It doesn't happend so any more and there isn't any "save"-button? Now I don't know how i can save bookmark if i edit it?

Currently it seems to be only way to get new modification of bookmark if i browse to some web-address then save that address to bookmarks-list. After that you can remove the old, wrong web-address. But you can't get own headline text to your new bookmark?

2. topic This is long-time idea. I have lots of bookmarks and sub-folders in my bookmarks-list (library). When i add new bookmark to list and like to put it to some specific sub-folder i can use left side bookmark-tree to browse bookmark to correct place. When i want search e.g. all bookmarks which have string "Firefox", i can't see if they all are same specific sub-folder like i want to. I can see headline text and web-address but i can't see where that bookmark is in library. Could we get bookmark-tree-path somehow to search output? And, it would be nice if i could click directly to that sub-folder to see if there would be even better bookmark for my need? At this moment (and earlier also) keywords are the only way try check if bookmarks are correct folder. But almost always web-pages don't fill keywords. So you should do it yourself. The bookmark-tree-path would be much more useful info after use search to find some subject bookmarks.
