Hi

If I am opening bookmarks in a folder or sub folder from the bookmark toolbar sometimes I'd like to open several related ones at the same time but I don't want to open all of them.

Is it possible to duplicate the middle click behaviour for shortcuts on a web page (mine is set to open in a new tab but don't switch to it) in the sense that if I middle click on a bookmark from a folder (or sub folder of) on the bookmarks toolbar it opens it in a new tab but doesn't then close the bookmark folder I'm using so I can select more to middle click without having to navigate back to it.

Thanks

Hello,

The bookmarks in the sidebar are enlisted by date, the most recent being added at the bottom of the list.

Is it possibile to reverse this order to view the most recent bookmarks on top of the list? Having a long bookmark list, every time I open the sidebar I have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of it. The same applies to Firefox for Android.

Thank you.

I spend days cleaning out my bookmarks W10 HP laptop. then I saw the link on the top right to sign into my Firefox account..did not know I even had one. It had me verify with number sent to my email. I did not sync. When I signed out- my bookmarks were filled with old ones I had deleted and some duplicated, Why and how do I fix this from happening again other than never signing into this Firefox account again.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-09-24-23-54-18-679698.png

I can choose the sub folder to save the bookmark to. BUT I now CAN'T scroll down the screen to hit the save button. Because the bookmark window doesn't have a scroll bar or a way to make the bookmark window smaller. This is frustrating. Firefox is having other issues not connected with this issue. But the overall picture is getting me to the point of dumping Firefox and going to Google Chrome.

Hi guys, I use many folders to organize my bookmarks, and it'd be easier for me to find the folders I need using the search option, but the search results show only tabs. Are there ways the search result will show folders too, along with tabs?

I foolishly clicked on Refresh and when it was done I had lost all bookmarks and history. I am at my wits' end trying to get back to where I was and will never do that again. Considering I am 80 years old I know for a fact there are probably a lot of things I won't be doing again but I would like to just go back to where I was. I am no longer able to get into Facebook which isn't going to cause the Earth to spin off its axis but I have several friends I really enjoy staying in touch with and it isn't possible to even enter FB now. I have tried everything, read all directions, followed all orders, jumped through all hoops (great Kodak moment for those of you with cameras) and I have failed.

I know that someone here, probably many of you, are more knowledgeable with the way this works and I would just enjoy being able to contact these two friends and get their emails, the FB connection isn't all that important. Now my question is and feel free to laugh but could this Refresh have caused some glitch in the innards of something or other that would cause this problem?

If any of you could help out a senior here I would be most appreciative.

Thank you for even reading my whining and begging plea.

Hello,

I've saved my bookmarks by using Export bookmarks to HTML". But the "tags" and "keywords" fields are not listed on the created page.

How do i save tags and keywords?

Related question: I'm using a Mac... where are the tags and keywords stored? Is that in /Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/(profile name)/bookmarkbackups/bookmarks-(date)(hash)==.jsonlz4 ? How would i read that and be able to utilize the tags and keywords from there?

Thank you for any clues.

Hello Mozilla Community,

I was hoping someone could help me with a major screw up that I've made.

A week ago,I performed a Windows System Restore because I was having internet connection issues.I was hoping that my default settings would fix this.Well,when I tried to go to Firefox(my default browser),my bookmarks were all gone.I had read about a suggested move of the about;profiles on Firefox solution.When I tried this,there were only two additional profiles on my page and they were over 2 years old.I also tried going through the ShowAllBookmarks/Import And Backup/Restore method and it was the same results(old versions that were over 2 years old).I know Firefox had created a bookmarks folder in my computer files titled Old Firefox Data but that has the same result also(old bookmarks profile from over 2 years ago).

Also,when I first tried to access Firefox after the System Restore,I was asked to sign in to Firefox.I don't ever remember writing down a password for Firefox so I created a new one.I was hoping that my bookmarks would somehow automatically restore themselves but it didn't happen.Is it safe to assume that with my new password reset that I'm not able to access my old profile with all my bookmarks from two days ago? So basically,it currently looks like all my bookmarks are gone from the last 2 years.I've tried many tutorials and videos but it all leads to my only getting access to my 2 year old bookmarks.

Last,I looked into a recovery tool that I found while browsing a help forum.It just gave me a free trial run and scanned my computer for recovery files.When looking for the Places:Sqlite files(old bookmarks), I noticed that the scan produced some recovery files from Mozilla Firefox that were only a few months old.I tried to search for them on my computer but nothing is recognized through my Windows Start button search.I was also advised to use RECUVA to recover old files that have been deleted.I also tried this and saw many old Mozilla/Firefox recovery files but couldn't find any that had Bookmarks in the file description.And when I do find a 'places.sqlite' file, every time I try to open it with Firefox it just keeps opening up a new window and never opens the file.

In closing,any of your expertise would be greatly appreciated because I'm completely stumped and frustrated.Please let me know if there's anything that you can help me with.

Thank you for your time

I'm not sure I understand how bookmarks work in Firefox. So I have an account and was logged in on a previous computer. That computer died, so I don't have files to import/restore. So does this mean all my bookmarks are gone because Firefox sync doesn't actually sync anything to my log in?

Thanks

All too often I'll find that one of my bookmark folders is "missing" and after doing some searching I find that the missing folder has been moved into another folder. Quite often the folder that gets moved is one that I've recently had open so it might be because of something that I'm doing but I don't know what that would be.

If a bookmark folder is active (this is in the side bar) is it possible to have Firefox move that folder without doing a cut/paste command?

I'd like to know if there is a way of moving a folder like that so I can STOP DOING IT.  :-)

Or is it a Firefox bug?

Can I export only specified bookmarks, or a specific bookmark folder, or is it all or nothing? If I export the whole thing to a .json file or to an HTML file, can I then import only selected bookmarks. (I want to copy a bookmark folder from one Mac to another. Different OS versions, same Firefox versions.)
