Currently when dragging and dropping a bookmark (or folder) in the Library holding the Option key causes a plus badge to appear, and a curved arrow badge appears while holding the Option+Command key. What is this about? How do these relate to a copy/paste action? I have not been able to find documentation on this.

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!!!

I lost my latest bookmarks and it's been mixed with different bookmarks with the same account, Here's the thing: I use the same account 116****@qq.com, which is a Chinese account. I usually use the global sync, but maybe 2yrs ago I used local sync for firefox of chinese version on Android for a while, which has different bookmarks. But I have adjust to global sync for a long time and have always use it now. Today the bookmarks became mixed. My most recent and old ones, and some of my latest bookmark folders have lost.

How can I get back to my latest bookmarks on PC, win10?

Please anyone who knows about this help. Please reply or contact me with [email address] Many many thanks ahead.

I have 2 windows 10 systems which I thought I might try sync to manage logins and bookmarks.

Initially it all worked smoothly then duplicate bookmarks started appearing, folders also duplicated and the only way to restore things was to revert to a saved version. I turned off sync for bookmarks but still changes appear almost every time I log into either device.

I am tempted to remove sync unless someone can suggest a solution.

I want to change some of my bookmark favicons. I went online and found a few recommendations for extensions that purport to do that, but when I tried to access them, I got "This page does not exist", which I assume to mean that those extensions are obsolete. When I tried to find a solution on the support forum, I got "1900" responses. I went through about 50 of them and none had anything to do with changing favicons!

There are a couple of YouTube videos that address this problem, but I can't understand the speech of the authors, and, from what I did understand, the process advocated is complex. I assume this is a simple task. Am I wrong? Just looking for a simple list of instructions.

Every time I start Firefox, the bookmarks are scrolling for about 5 minutes and I have to wait for that to finish before I can even click on them because they are constantly moving.

There are multiple bookmarks I have removed hundreds of times...no lie...they keep coming back. for some there are duplicates/triplicates of them in my main bookmark toolbar. I will delete the ones I don't want and after a while, they come back again.

My bookmarks are a mess because of this - I constantly have to keep going back and ordering them by name just so I can make sure I delete all the duplicates. Then, all of a sudden, they start scrolling again replacing the ones I just deleted. This has been going on for months - possibly years...I quit using Firefox for a while because it was so frustrating. I like the product, but this is driving me nuts. additional files attached. 2 images were captured just a few seconds from each other while the bookmarks are moving all around. If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated. Thanks, Kate

In the Library window, the search feature is not limited to the current folder, but it searches in all bookmarks or history, depending on which one is selected.

Search under the current folder only is standard functionality for such features.

There is no add-on that conveniently mimics this feature.

when i choose show your bookmarks i have the correct list and favicons as i had in previous versions of firefox ,im using the light theme and its applicable to all themes,so here is the issue..moving your mouse pointer over the selected bookmark use to give it a dark blue highlight and any bookmark you chose would highlight like this,now i have no highlight on placing the cursor over it,just a text box in mono showing the url this seems a bit vague when moving over several bookmarks and none is highlighted.ive recently moved to windows 10 pro and was clean install and up to date with a new profile on firefox .only the bookmarks were a html file imported from a usb stick so cant see that being an issue. firefox is also up to date with adblocker ultimate as the only addon.

OK, I admit this is my fault. I tend to save everything. I "Select All Tabs", then I "Bookmark Tabs ...", and Save them to a folder named for the currect date or even datetime. To find a saved bookmark, I "Show All Bookmarks" or use "library" and then search for keywords. These methods work. But I would now like to consolidate all of these folders/bookmarks into new folder(s), sort, and remove duplicates.

"Organize" in "library" has no such function ( that I can find ). Are there any existing methods in Firefox to consolidate bookmarks? If not, I will try to copy them into Excel or MySQL to sort and remove duplicates.

Thank you.

I am using Firefox version 78.0.2 on Mac OS X Catalina 10.15.5, I have 2 external monitors, this error only happens when Firefox is on one of the external monitors.

I have many bookmarks that I keep in folders in the bookmarks bar, when I click the bookmarks bar folder for the section that I would like to access the drop down list for the bookmarks in that folder shows up either on the main screen of my Mac or the other external monitor. There doesn't seem to be any specific occurrence that makes it show up on one screen of the other. I have tried to reset/refresh Firefox already as well to no avail. How do I get the menu to go back to show up under the folder that I click on?

Attached are 2 photos one where I am clicking on the "Weather" folder in the bookmarks bar and another showing the second desktop where the menu is showing.

I have checked "remember my history" in preferences.
