I've tried every suggestion of removing "Other Bookmarks" and all failed miserably with this new Firefox, it is ticking me off, why Firefox creates these irritations for its members is beyond me, no wonder its popularity is shrinking. I need a new solution that works for mercy sake, I am at the end of my rope with this issue.

When I was looking at the site and login credentials I noted there are three accounts listed:

@hotmail.com - When I log into Firefox using this account I am granted access to bookmarks and related credentials. @gmail.com - When I try to login using this account, a message is presented saying I need to log in using the main account. This makes sense as this is listed as a secondary account.

My main concern is the last account - when I try to login using those credentials, I need to go through an account set up - including providing my age. So is this an account I should be concerned with, or can it be safely ignored?

Best regards! Loralie

Hi All,

A few of my sub-folders within my bookmarks do not show up in the Toolbar and Sidebar. The same bookmarks' sub-folder are present in the Bookmarks library (that's accessed from Firefox settings).

Could you please help with how I can get these sub-folders to show up in the Toolbar/Sidebar, please.

Thank you.

I got the message : "The address wasn’t understood Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (javascript) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context. You might need to install other software to open this address.". What to do ?

I can manually save copies of Bookmarks with export to a file. Where does Firefox save them, how often, when, and where are the 15 backups. Would like the safety of copying and saving to an off computer drive.

Now remembering, I see them from: Help, Trouble Shooting Information Mode, Profile Folder (Open) then bookmarksbackup Folder. Should I then save the most recent dated version?

Firefox is the best browser ever built on Linux.

But, I don't like the current bookmark manager for firefox.

I want to know if there's a better bookmark manager for firefox (in form of add-ons)?

I've seen chrome lookalike bookmark manager in firefox called "(bookmark manager)https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../chrome-bookmark-manager" but I didn't like it (not sure why, because I liked chrome's bookmark manager).

My pattern of usage:

I keep around 10 folders for bookmarks where each folder have 10 subfolders and each subfolder has 20+ links. I keep on editing bookmarks (removing, arranging them here and there in various folders, deleting them etc), so what'd be the best bookmark manager for me?

Need help. Just installed Firefox on Windows 11 on a new computer. I tried to sync the bookmarks so that it was like all the other versions I've had. But, I can't. I can put bookmarks on the Bookmarks Toolbar, but where I used to have the Bookmarks Menu on the top right of monitor I can't seem to do it. I miss opening a folder and having multiple bookmarks opening all at once. A little help please. Thanks....

So, Firefox automatically updated (to 103.0.1), and somehow or other the sidebar with all the bookmarks disappeared. Normally, this would take me about 10 seconds to find where the function was hidden, and turn it back on. No big deal--just a petty nuisance. Now, however, this function has been hidden so well, that I have no clue where to look.

I understand that interfaces change, and not everyone works the same way, but that's no excuse for flat out taking away a tool that some people (no matter how small a minority) still use on a regular basis, just in the dubious name of 'fashion.' Leave well enough alone. If I wanted my tools changed and moved on an irregular and capricious basis, I'd stick to Microsoft.

Now, please tell me how to get my bookmarks side bar back, or put together an update that makes it functional again.

I have 2 laptops I will call OLD and NEW. Both have Firefox Browser 104.0.2. I have the Menu Bar at the upper left corner for both OLD and NEW.

On OLD when I click the Bookmarks link in the Menu Bar, i see a few links (Manage Bookmarks, Bookmark current tab, etc). Then below the links I see all my bookmarks listed. I DO NOT have to click on a link to see my bookmarks.

On NEW when I click the Bookmarks link in the Menu Bar, I also see a few links (Manage Bookmarks, Bookmark current tab, etc). And then nothing else. I have to click a link to see bookmarks. How do I get NEW to display my bookmarks without having to click a link?
