Until recently it was possible by opening chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul and it was glitchy when it came to bookmark manipulation, but at least I could view the bookmarks... After today's update that URL leads to nowhere. Any other methods?

Trying to bring bookmarks from Safari to Firefox, I've carefully followed the instructions provided by folks in this forum with no success.

Using "Import data from another browser" I get "From Safari" folders but they turn up empty; see screenshot. Using "Import bookmarks from HTML" and selecting the bookmark file I exported from Safari, I get an "Export Complete" message but nothing shows up in Firefox. Not even empty folders.

I've tried repeatedly. Quit browsers, rebooted, opened browsers, nothing works.

(sorry if this is a duplicate question; I put it in the wrong place earlier)

Help?

I rebooted my computer and all my bookmarks disappeared. I looked for instructions on line but they don't apply to my computer. It says to click on library then bookmarks then restore . I do not have those options. there is no restore button. Why don't they fix this problem. I have wasted an hour and still don't have my book marks back. I have logged in twice.

I opened firefox and it said that I had an older version and that i should create a new profile online so i did that and logged in. I use firefox everyday and had never seen this message before. I created the new profile and logged in and all my bookmarks are gone. I went to about:profiles and it shows 2 profiles but only the ones that i created yesterday. Oddly, i don't ever remember creating a profile before this. I would just open up firefox and it worked like a normal browser. Now that I have a profile the bookmarks aren't there. Thanks for your help.

Hi everyone. When I opened Mozilla, I found out that all my bookmarks disappeared. Yesterday they were here, but now not anymore...how is it possible? I followed all the info to recover my bookmarks but I couldn't. It's like everything disappeared, I've never done a backup of my bookmarks or anything else so I don't know if I lost them for ever. Attached there's a screenshot of what appears. Please help me because I had over 300 bookmarks, and now I can't find one!

Hello, thanks for helping! Win10 Firefox 76.0.1

When I create a bookmark for a particular site by drag-dropping onto Bookmark Toolbar, it's incorrectly using the favicon for Google Calendar. The page has nothing to do with google and in the page source, it's pointing to the correct page favicons (i edited to --- for privacy)

<link href='https://---.png' rel='icon' sizes='32x32' type='image/png'> <link href='https://---.png' rel='icon' sizes='16x16' type='image/png'>

Why would this be happening? And how can I easily edit the favicon? Would it be a good Firefox feature request to be able to choose the favicon in Bookmark properties?

Hey all! I know this question has been asked before, so sorry for asking again. I want to know if there is a way I can manually change the little icons that appear next to your bookmarks on your toolbar. There's a few that all have the same icon that I'd like to change. That way I can differentiate them at a glance, plus I'd just like the option to customize them in general. I was searching for an answer to this, and a few people recommended an add-on/extension, however the posts were so old, the links were dead. I'm not sure if the add-ons still exist, but I figured I'd ask and see if anyone knew what they were. Most of the posts regarding this question seemed to be quite. That's why I thought I might ask again and see if anything has changed. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I'd love to hear them. Even if it's an "unofficial" solution. Thanks a bunch, and stay safe!!!

HI I have just updated FF from a very old version to 77.0b8 (64-bit). My favourite bookmarks bar had coloured (like windows) folder icons, now they are black, bland and horrible. I have tried searching for an add on that changes the folder icon colours, but the search brings up far to many bookmark add ons not related. I have tried many different searches but can't get a result. Does anyone know of a mod/add on, or a way to change the Folder icons colour please? Many thanks for reading.

Why has Firefox started automatically adding bookmarks without asking me what to name them. In the past, when you clicked on “Bookmark This Page” a box popped up and asked you what you wanted to name the bookmark and where you wanted it to be saved. Now a little blue flag appears at top right corner of the screen and your bookmark has already been added. You then have to right click on the bookmark to edit it’s properties. Does anyone know how to change that back to the way it was ? Thank you so very much for your help on this.
