MBP Pro mid 2012, Firefox 79.0, High Sierra 10.13.6

I want to backup my bookmarks. When I do the following, the Library window opens but the Import and Backup button is missing. I've attached a screen shot.

1) Click Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks from the menu bar.

2) In the Library window that opens, click the Import and Backup button in the toolbar.

I am moving to a new MBP so I need to do a backup to import my bookmarks on the new computer.

Thanks for your help

I add a bookmark and place it in a suitable folder. I can close Firefox and the bookmark is there when I restart Firefox.

I close down Firefox then restart Windows 10. The newly added bookmark is gone.

What's happening?

It's especially annoying because saving/restoring bookmarks is useless as it loses all bookmark ordering in the various folders I use.

I'm using Mozilla Firefix for my web browzer. I have a number of tabs open (~10) on my tab bar. I have each tab open to a selected web site. As I switch from one tab to another, at times the tab will come unlocked from the tab bar into a separate window. Then I must reposition it back to where I had it on the tab bar. Is there any way to lock these tabs down to prevent them from unlocking like this..?

I am noticing odd behavior in my browser where some folders pull down with a caret at the top and some don't. (Please see the very tops of the two attached screenshots, just below the menu bar.)

The caret appears to have no function: it does nothing. Can somebody explain what's going on and how I can eliminate carets?

Thank you

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...

Desperately needed help please.

Just upgraded to latest version of Firefox v 78.0.2 (64 bit) and I've lost all my Bookmarks!

All I can find in Bookmarks are the pages I seem to have looked at in this version of Firefox and nothing else. Work my way through various suggestions in the Help section but I still can't find my Bookmarks, I hate to say this but it looks like I've overwritten th bookmarksfile and somehow deleted everything, but I know I didn't consciously do this.

I'd be eternally grateful if anybody could help me with this problem please.

(Troubleshooting information doesn't seem to have worked.)

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I just did a clean reinstallation of windows and it deleted all my files. I installed Firefox and logged in to sync bookmarks and tabs, but I realized I hadn't activated tab sync. So in a desperate attempt to restore them, I tried the Restore option in Archives. And it restored to the Firefox version before i had synchronized my bookmarks, the bookmarks was gone and before I could react it had already synchronized. Now my bookmarks are gone aswell. I tried looking for a profile in the Appdata\Roaming Firefox folder but I can't find any profile from before the wipe.

Is there anything I can do to get my bookmarks back? Or are they completely lost?
