Hello, all:

I thought I could try reaching out to see about why Firefox somehow reset itself or something earlier tonight then I lost some recent bookmarks with the bookmarks I had in the bookmarks bar so I had to set it up again and am not too sure of whether it'll happen again which I hope won't. Is there a simpler way or something so I can be sure to keep the bookmarks I have since I have quite a number of them? Hope this information helps you figure out the issue I had earlier and how to not have it happen again at some point which I hope won't be the case. Thank you in advance if you reply to this post.

Hello,

Recently I observed following behavior:

  1. Ctrl+L to select addres bar.
  2. "* " to trigger bookmark shortcuts.
  3. I type few letters of my query.
  4. The seeked bookmark is shown second on the list. The first results is a nonbookmarked history item.

See attached image for an example.

The issue is this: Why on earth would I bother with the "* " prefix if I wanted a non-bookmark result?

This seems be a recent change. Can this be disabled somehow? Thanks!

After the Firefox and Windows updated I've lost bookmarks from the last 4 months. I have majority of my bookmarks on the bookmark toolbar just not the recent ones. Firefox old data only goes back to Sept 2020. Even the restore points doesn't have the recent ones. I had them on my android but I couldn't get them to sync to the desktop so I uninstalled Firefox on my android and now I don't have the updated ones there anymore.

I regularly do repeated tasks in different subject areas, for instance, finance, sports, business, etc.. With each of these, I regularly go to a standard set of sites in different tabs.

How in Firefox can I create sets of tabs such that all I need to do is click on one, Finance, for instance, and have it automatically open the set of tabs that I saved in that set? So, then I could open Sports, and just see the regular set of tabs that I saved for that topic.

In other words, using different instances of Firefox, I could open different sets of tabs without having to open those tabs individually every time.

Stop Firefox from suggesting root URLs of bookmarks

Is there a way to stop Firefox from suggesting/autocompleting the root URL of pages I've bookmarked? For example, say I've bookmarked https://www.mysite.com/pageone and named it "My Site - Page 1". If I start typing "my" in the URL bar, the very first suggestion is https://www.mysite.com, instead of my bookmark.

NOTE: I have disabled ALL other suggestions other than bookmarks, including common/popular sites (i.e. typing "goo" will not autocomplete with google, because I have not bookmarked any google sites)

I didn't bookmark the root URL, so I don't want it to be suggested. Any way to disable this behavior?

Thanks!

I put "bookmarks" for the subject but that's just because none of the other options adequately describes my situation! I just got a new MacBook Air. I hate Safari, so I always use Firefox instead as my main browser on Mac. Have been doing it for years. This time, I set up Firefox the way I wanted it, with a specific home page, logged into all my sites, emails, Facebook, youtube, etc etc, and set them all on my Toolmarks bar. ... Then a couple of days later, had to re-sign in to my computer due to downloading software, and lost everything I had done on Firefox! Had to re-sign into all my accounts again as well. Set everything up on Firefox again ... couple of days later, had to re-sign into my computer to due to downloading software ... lost everything I had set up on Firefox, had to re-sign into all my accounts. I would be so appreciative if anybody could tell me why this is happening and what I can do to fix it! I really love Firefox and don't want to give it up! Talked to Apple about it and they say it's not their issue. ... Thanks so much!!

Mac 10.15.7. FIREFOX 86. Groups of bookmarks are gone. This happens regularly. Bookmarks I rebuild yesterday, that group is gone today.

The bookmarks are "there" but not in their group.  Takes hours to re-sort.

It takes a LONG time to rebuild from HTML backup. The jsn backup is ok, but it wipes everything I have done today out. I backup almost every day.

I have thousands of bookmarks = hours of work. Then I have to spend many hours rebuilding. 1/ What is happening? 2/ How to stop it?

When syncing between devices, the location of bookmarks in subfolders is not remembered

I use Firefox on 3 devices: - a PC at home (Win 10, FF standard instalation), - an Android phone (Xiaomi Mi 9T) - a PC at work (Win7) with the Firefox portable version.

I have the latest, stable, up-to-date versions of Firefox on all my devices.

The problem is when I save a bookmark on one of the computers at work or at home, and then the devices synchronize. Bookmarks between computers do not remember their position in the bookmark folders and are saved in the main folder.

I have already performed all the steps based on the instructions in this article, but the problem persists. ([https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1270667])

Hello! I recently switched from google chrome to fox. Tell me, I ran into the problem that there are no extensions that I am used to seeing in my working environment in Google Chrome. I read that there used to be an extension that allowed you to install extensions from chrome. But now I couldn't find him. I need some extensions, without which I cannot arrange my full-fledged workflow. For example, one of these: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/simpleextmanager/kniehgiejgnnpgojkdhhjbgbllnfkfdk unfortunately I have not found analogues. Earlier, 10 years ago, the fox had much more extensions, now, unfortunately, it is not so ...

How can I solve my problem? Extensions switcher I really need other extensions.

Can anybody tell me what Firefox's default order is for sorting bookmarks when doing a search in the sidebar or when clicking on a 'Recent Tag' folder?

In both cases the bookmark results are listed in an order that I cannot determine (it's not by date, name, last visited, number of visits, date modified, date added etc.)

Is there some other means by which 'relevance' is being determined to affect the order in which bookmarks are listed in search results and tag folders?

I will often get very similar bookmarks listed at opposite ends of the results, or very frequently used sites buried at the bottom of the list with rarely used ones at the top.

Sure, with regards to tag folders I can just click one of the column headings to get a more logical and predictable sort order, but in sidebar search results there is no such option and you have to just put up with whatever random order Firefox chooses to display matching results.
