How can I change the font for FF bookmarks?

I need to use special characters in my bookmark entries (in the sidebar), for url entries and also, if possible, for the folders containing them. When I rightclick to get "Properties", there is no field "Font" or similar, so how/where would I change the font, and what default font is used there, to begin with?

My second question would then be how use another font for some entries, instead of the default one, or more precisely, how to combine two fonts within the same entry (bookmark or bookmark folder, if possible, too), in order to get, within the regular text of the entry, some special characters which are not included within the default font.

If such combination of two fonts for the same entry is not possible, I should at least know what the default font is, and where FF stores it, in order to put special characters from within another, special font into that default font.

Thank you!

Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.

Sincerely, AM

The most recent Windows update had a window that popped up unprompted about the new Microsoft Edge. I tried to get out of it, because I am not interested in using Microsoft Edge. There was no "cancel" or red "X" button. "Close window" on the taskbar did nothing. So it seemed like I had to proceed in order to get this thing off my screen.

It asked whether I wanted to transfer all my info from Firefox over to Microsoft Edge, I said no, and now my Firefox bookmarks have vanished.

I was unable to do the "Restore" process from this link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-bookmarks-from-backup-or-move-them#w_restoring-from-backups

I cannot find a directory called "windows.old" to do the "Restoring bookmarks after upgrading or downgrading Windows 10" process

I haven't synced my bookmarks anywhere else so that isn't a restore option.

Some of the bookmarks I have on the toolbar will open the web page automatically and some will not. For example, if I click one site it goes right to my summary page without logging in. If I click on another it goes to the log in page. The user name & password auto-fills but how can I get these sites to open automatically when from the short cut in the toolbar.

Could it be a Windows 10 issue? I didn't seem to have this problem with the old Edge browser but now I get the same thing in the new Edge, Chrome, and Firefox.

I imported bookmarks from Safari on my Macbook Pro. When I click on the 'Bookmarks Menu' and 'Other Bookmarks' about half of the folders do not show any bookmarks. However, when I open the Bookmarks through the sidebar, everything shows up....all folders and contents. So all my bookmarks were imported but half of the folders' contents do not show up if I go through the Bookmarks and Other Bookmarks menu. Going through the menu is easier so I hope someone has a solution. Thanks.
