As said: Bookmarks only visible in new tab, by default.

Why are all those anti-usability features made so regularly, after every update? Why does Mozilla has a thing for bad design choices in general?

Is there a specific reason for this? Just horrible designers, or bad intend?

Fix for this particular problem: Menu bar => Customize => at the bottom switch 'toolbar' to 'bookmarks' => always show.

I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

So, I just noticed today that my bookmarks section is acting oddly. Normally it brings up the option for where to send a bookmark. But randomly, I've seen it suddenly switch to just defaulting to the last bookmark location. For example, I want to bookmark something in a bookmark folder I have specific for things related to writing, but when I go to bookmark the site, the first thing that comes up is the location I created for youtube videos. What exactly is going on here, and how do I fix that?

Why is Firefox now starting to remove bookmarks from my bookmarks menu. Several bookmarks have been repeatedly removed from my list. Just understand me, if you have started to sensor bookmarks , i will leave and use another browser. I am very disappointing with this browser. Open source and and a free community to share info. I guess you have also been taken over by big tech. Very sad, I guess it's Good Bye.

Unfortunately my main desktop computer decided it no longer wants to boot up. I was using Firefox as my browser and would like to know if there is some way I can get all my bookmarks back. I have a second desktop computer and was wondering if I opened a Firefox account on that computer and then signed in with the same email and password, would I be able to see all my bookmarks or am I simply out of luck?

Thank you for your help--Matt

So for the second time this month my bookmarks in my toolbar have disappeared. I was signed into my Firefox account both times they went missing. I tired to restore from backup...... nothing. I made sure that the tool bar was enabled.... nothing. I'm so frustrated, as I am in full-time school with three days left in my term and all my textbooks and course sites are GONE!! I don't understand why this keeps happening.

My old computer completely died the other day. I cannot get past a blank screen on open, with no icons or anything. So I bought a new computer and my son installed FF and signed in. (FF is my browser of choice.) Problem is that none of my FF bookmarks show. I turned on sync in the new computer, and the bookmarks bar is showing, it's just blank.

How can I fix this?

I recently installed the Firefox 88 browser update to fix the problem that Windows would not recognize my Firefox browser in order to make it my default. Upon researching the issue, it stated that I needed to uninstall my old version of Firefox and reinstall the latest version. At the end of the installation before it completed the installation, it asked if I wanted to "Refresh" my browser. I read how it would streamline and speed up my browsing experience and it seemed like a "good" idea. I agreed to the "Refresh" and the browser finished its installation. I checked into setting Firefox as my default browser and Windows recognized it. Great, the re-installation worked.

I then proceeded to open Firefox only to realize that any custom setting, including my 15+ years of bookmarks were gone. I began to panic! I noticed that there was an "Old Firefox Data" file now on my desktop. I looked inside and realized that it contained my old data, including bookmarks, etc. I began searching online for how to get it back into my browser. I have read 7-8 tutorials and 3-4 Youtubes that supposedly fix the problem, but to no avail. Please help as I do not want to lose all my bookmarks and while not computer illiterate, cannot seem to figure out how to get them to reinstall into the new Firefox browser update.

Thank you for your help!

I lost all faith in Firefox a few years ago after a botched upgrade ruined it, so I downgraded and stopped upgrading entirely. The new interface is garbage, and I hate it. Everything HAS to be a distracting theme. Stupid.

But I'm finally trying to upgrade anyway for security reasons. When I try to use the new version of Firefox, I try to import my bookmarks, and only the bookmarks NOT inside the Bookmarks Toolbar import. Obviously, this means I can't upgrade, and I sure as hell am not risking upgrading this browser directly, since I have zero faith in Mozilla these days.

My question to Mozilla: Why can't we just import directly from another version of Firefox like I could if I'd been smart enough to use Chrome instead? And I receive a bloody warning when I open it, telling me to either create a new profile or quit, so there isn't even an option to import my bookmarks directly! I'm honestly thinking about just dropping you for Chrome at this point. It would just be easier.

My question to everyone: WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO to get my bookmarks toolbar imported? I export. I import. NOTHING.

Thanks!

Hi there! Some background info: I have a desktop PC. I just got the newest firefox update. ...Thanks; I hate it. And they've altered the way the bookmarks look. So now the bookmarks drop-down menu is so long that I have to scroll down to see everything on it, (I didn't have to before). And what's worse is that sometimes one moment it will be over the Windows taskbar that's at the bottom of my screen and suddenly it will disappear UNDER the taskbar where I can't see everything and I struggle to access anything with my mouse. It's SO aggravating. How do I fix this??

I'm Not sure what happened, my laptop updated last night and suddenly all my bookmarks for school and school assignments are GONE! I also now have a folder on my desktop from today(4/21/21)labeled "old firefox data" but it's pretty much empty besides amazon & booking.com which I've never used..

How can I restore all my previous settings? I have SOOO many research links for papers, school based sites, bibliography references, etc not to mention things like discord and other sites to connect with classmates(I'm a ft online college student!) In those bookmarks.

Thanks in advanced!
