I place 10 sites in a bookmark folder named publishing. I want to find those websites again- how do I search for the folder publisher?

I have a few spare minutes and I'm writing a book. I was to self-publish it or e-publish it or I don't know. I search for websites dealing with publishing books and place them in a bookmark folder named publishing. Several days later I want to recall those sites I found to see which ones interest me. I do not know any of the url's, I only know I placed them in a folder called publishing. I have hundreds of bookmark folders and thousands of urls. I want to search for and find the folder publisher so I can look at the websites. Your instructions about the upper search windows bring up history of places (many) I've visited. Your bookmark tools: you can get a history, you can view recently bookmarked, used tags, show unsorted (in no particular order), You canorganize, crete new bookmarks and NEW folders, etc. and all kinds of other organizational stuff. You can view in columns by keyword... and a well hidden window pops up called search BOOKMARKS...not FOLDERS. I typed in publish and all I got back were urls with the name publish in their title. And finally you can sort - again bookmarks, not folders. I don't think I even found a place where you can alphabetize folders which would be some kind of start...going down the list to the "P's" until I found publish. And finally, but equally not helpful you can import and backup. NOWHERE can you search for a folder that I could easily find. I have been a programmer since the mid 70's and a web designer too - if I can't find it I need to hang up my keypad because I've lost it. (Is that a better description than "something is wrong, firefox is broken"? But by the way, thank you for having the professional courage and courtesy to at least make this kind of dialogue available - you are one of the few and that is why I like your company and your browser..now if you could just fix this little problem for me (as well as finally get a substitute for that lousy Adobe Flash...do I hear HTML5?) I'd be a very happy camper and do unsolicited ads for you to all my goofy friends. Thank you if you made it this far - you're a brave soul.

Trying to hit the back arrow doesn't help. The other website takes over about mortgages. I have to go to another Tab and try connecting with Zillow. I have the Zillow URL on my Bookmark toolbar. I have deleted this several times and tried saving it again to no avail.

After the 39.0.3 update on XPsp3, the keyboard is often unresponsive, i.e. the 'alt' key will not bring up the title bar menu or 'cont+n' will not open a new window. It was working fine before the update. Is this a common problem?

Only with the latest version (39.0.3) FF hangs during input keystrokes, recovers after a few minutes. Task Manager shows 0 to 1% CPU utilisation. Have tried the suggestions under FAQ but none seem to help, incl safe mode, places, sessionstore, reset. Causing an enormous waste of time trying to correct. Would like to return to a previous version if that's possible. Environment: Windows 7 home on Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3 m/board with Intel G3240 CPU. Other Apps normally running: Thunderbird and ZoneAlarm Internet Security suite.

PS It has taken 15 mins to type this due to 3 times stopped responding !!

every time i try to login to a website, with which i have an account, with a user name and password i can enter the user name but the banner across the top of the page asks for my password and will not let me enter in into the password field on the sign in form. when i enter the correct password into the banner it tells me the password is incorrect and as a result i have great difficulty signing into some, not all, websites. How can i disable this banner which appeared after an update to firefox?

I have created an autoconfig file for my organizations firefox users which helps set settings like our popup blocker and allowing exceptions. I was wondering what i can use to allow popups for an entire domain without having to type each possible individual site. Is this possible? If so, how do you type it out?

I have tried:

  • .mydomain.com

[*.]mydomain.com

Thanks for your time!!

I believe I have this working on my other computer but don't know how I set it up or if I can. What I'd like is the ability to press the X in the corner and close my tabs, and then have them restored when I open firefox, but also be able to individually close each tab and have firefox bring me to the homepage upon opening again.

For the last month or so on my Mac, Firefox crashes whenever I go to Google Maps. I'm on OS X 10.9.4 and Firefox 39.0.3. I've seen some fix suggestions on this forum for Windows but nothing about Mac. This is the only site that crashes Firefox for me. I've been having to use Safari for mapping.

Thanks!

I often search for PChsearch on my email to then use PCH search engine. Use AOL...I know guru's can't believe people use AOL. But I am an old bird of 78 and hate change. I do this almost daily (thinking by some miracle I might win a PCH drawing!!) Today when I did this the above statement appeared...a first! So didn't know how to solve so I used their search engine to go to FB...where I was planning to go anyway. Same thing happened...can anyone explain and tell me why this happened & how to solve?
