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

Just got 103.0.1 update, and bookmarks sidebar has disappeared. No luck finding any way to get it back. What the hell?

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.

However, the reinstall has none of my bookmarks. Is there a way to recover the Bookmarks from my previous version ? They took years to develop. Any help will be appreciated.

Noticing that on Windows 11 with Firefox 103, bookmarking a page no longer asks you where you want to put it ; it just throws it in the last folder into which you bookmarked something else. This is Windows 11 with all the latest updates as of 7-31-22. Now I tried Firefox 103 on Windows 7 sp1 and had no problems whatsoever assigning a specific folder for bookmarks, so this leads me to believe that something in Firefox 103 is not jiving correctly with the latest updates in Windows 11, or just Windows 11 itself in general. Thanks, and hope you can reproduce the issue and maybe even fix it ! Max

Last week, I exported my bookmarks to an HTML file (as I do every month). Today, I had to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I was able to restore my profile, but I can't get FFX to restore my bookmarks from last week's backup. I bring up the bookmark manger, click on "Restore from HTML", and point to the backup file. I click "Open", but nothing happens. I've done this in the past with no problems, but I can't seem to do it this time. What's wrong, and what do I have to do to fix it?

Just posting this to confirm that the solution provided by cor-el in an archived thread (four years ago) works, if you want to change your bookmark folder icons.

[[ https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1210566| https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1210566]]

After clicking the top right menu icon from the browser, going to Help > More Troubleshooting Information, and then opening the Profile Folder location, I added a `chrome` folder to the root of the directory, and created an empty `userChrome.css` file within it.

I then added the following to `userChrome.css`. On startup it successfully changed the folder icons (I just didn't want any icon for each folder, so I set it to none):

``` @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

  1. personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item[container],
  2. bookmarksMenuPopup .bookmark-item[container] {
list-style-image:none !important;
-moz-image-region:auto!important;

} ```
