I need to copy browsing history and bookmarks from one laptop with FF v.60 to another laptop with FF v.52.

I know there are different ways of doing this, but in my case I don't have use of the source laptop. BUT, I do have the full profile saved in both laptops. I also had saved a json bookmarks copy, but it's 5 days old. No huge deal but I had some major restructuring of my bookmarks yesterday.

There's also sync, but I tried to just sync history and it does nothing. Plus I'm not sure if it's going to sync to "last updated" which is actually the other (destination) laptop with FF v52.

In my profile I see bookmarks clearly, but no history. They are both in places.sqlite? Should I just copy this? What else would be copied?

By the way, in bookmarkbackups folder, I see the last jsonlz4 file is from June 9 12:10 am, not June 10 12:10 am as it should have been perhaps. Does this jsonlz4 file work with the restore command of "import and backup"?

Thank you!

There are 2 problems. I don't know maybe they are related so I'm presenting them both. In the past both processes have worked with no problems. Windows 8.1, latest FireFox.

First: Bookmarks Backup Bookmarks tab Show all bookmarks Library opens Import and Backup Backup Bookmarks backup filename window opens pick destination folder - Desktop File name box: bookmarks-2021-06-10.json Save

Only there isn't a file saved on my Desktop. And it's not my computer messing up. I took a snapshot of the Library Bookmarks backup filename window and saved it to the desktop and it worked fine. I thought maybe if I used File Explorer it could find the file bookmarks-2021-06-10.json. It did, but it's still not on the Desktop where I could save it to an external hard drive for a Backup. See attached files.

Second: Bookmarks delete files/folders. I can move files and folders around, just deleting or removing them is a problem.

Method A. Bookmarks tab right click on link or folder I want to delete click Remove Bookmark nothing happens

or Method B. Bookmarks tab Show all Bookmarks Library window opens right click on file/folder want to delete Drop down menu, click Remove Bookmark

or Method C. Bookmarks tab Show all Bookmarks Library window opens choose file to delete Organize drop down menu, click Delete

This is where it gets confusing. For methods B and C sometimes it will delete, sometimes not. Thinking about it, mostly not. I dont know why the difference, I don't think I did anything different to delete one but not the other.

When I open the Bookmarks tab again, I can't tell if the list is the same or not. I don't think it's changed.

I worked really hard on this and then I messed up and lost everything I'd done. So, I started all over, but I don't know if this is as accurate as the first. I hope so.

Please, I'm an old lady simple answers in plain English are always appreciated.

Hiya, I use bookmarks to keep a track of music I plan to listen to, and I had set up my folders so I could see everything in a subfolder on my screen. Now the font size or something changed and I can't see everything all at once on my screen. I don't have the time or energy right now to even think about trying to reorganise it all. Is there a way I can lower the font size or something to get back the space I lost?

How can I permanently force firefox's automatic updates to be turned off? Which guy modified the original design for the new version of Firefox bookmarks? Is there something wrong with that man's brain? Is the spacing of the new bookmark item too large to read? It's very uncomfortable.

Is there anyway to restore the format (compactness) of the Bookmark Menus without setting the Automatic Updates to not automatically update and then downloading the 88.0.1 version? I hate to not have the Automatic Updates, for obvious reasons, but don't want to use the double space of the Bookmarks even more.

I have been a loyal Firefox user for umpteen years – but no more! Without asking, my browser updated to version 89, and immediately, I didn’t like it. It looked washed out, difficult to tell the difference between tabs (I routinely have 30+ tabs open at once), plus it was slower. The biggest “peeve” was when I tried to enter a Google search question in the “Search” box, but Firefox kept jumping up the URL bar. Gawd I hate that! That did it! I decided to revert back to version 88 but you decided you would “punish” me for my decision. I lost all my bookmarks, passwords and preferences. I am a computer support volunteer and I work primarily with senior citizens, however I try to help anyone who needs my help. When I setup a new computer for a client, I usually install Firefox and Chrome, explaining that many people do not like the default browser that comes with Windows. From this point on, I will no longer recommend nor install Firefox. You lost a customer today. Congratulations.

I was really angry that there seems to be no way to actually send an email "TO" Mozilla. Instead, they depend on you volunteers to take the heat for them. If you know of anyway to actually get this information to them, I would appreciate it.

Hi, Not sure if I found a bug. The Bookmarks bar i set to show on new tabs, but doesn't show when I open a new tab (ctrl-T). However, if I open a new window (ctrl-N) it will show... Very strange.

What's even more strange is that it works fine on my workstation (Windows 10 v. 20H2) but not on my laptop (Windows 10 v. 1909)

Firefox versions on both systems is 89.0 x64 and they are both fresh installs.

Not sure if the import from Chrome messed something up. I did have some bookmarks imported from the bookmark bar in Chrome on my laptop but had none to import on my workstation.

Hello all,

How do I increase the font size of my bookmarks library? I'm not talking about when I click on the Bookmarks manu and get the drop down menu listing them, but rather when I click on the Bookmarks menu and then choose: 'Show all Bookmarks" and the Library opens with all my Bookmarks in a table--how do I increase the font size here? It's too small and difficult to read currently.

Thank you.

When I started firefox today, there was a new folder added to my bookmarks toolbar - "Other Bookmarks". It was never there before and I want to remove it. In the bookmarks menu itself I have the "Bookmarks Toolbar" where I put the stuff I want to access often, and "Other Bookmarks" where I put other stuff I don't need as much. I don't see a reason why the "Other Bookmarks" should take up space on the bar.

Firefox appears to have just updated. Now my bookmarks list is so long I have to scroll down to see everything. It looks like everything has been spaced out further, which I hate. It takes up was too much space. They were probably going for a more elegant, less cluttered look, but it just ended up making things more aggravating for me. There should be a way to adjust or turn off the spacing feature. Any suggestions?
