When I select "Add Bookmark" from the Bookmark dropdown menu on the menu bar, the popup menu to select the location (folder) to place the bookmark quickly flashes open and closed. The bookmark is created, but it is created in the last place that a bookmark was added. If I am still on that tab and I try to use "Edit Bookmark" from the menu bar to open the pop up it also just flashes up and closes.

If I move away from that tab to another one, and then come back to it, the "Edit Bookmark is not even listed as an option."

Can you please assist.



/edit: moved thread from Firefox for iOS (for iPhone/iPad) to Firefox section as you have macOS<b/b>.

I recently installed Firefox version 120.0.1 on Linux Lite 6.6 and logged in to my Mozilla and Firefox accounts, then synced my data. In the past, when I used Ubuntu Desktop 22.04, this method would display all the bookmarks I had saved on other devices that also use Firefox. However, for this case, syncing did not successfully display bookmarks in the Firefox toolbar.

I then tried exporting bookmarks to an HTML file, then importing them into the newly installed Firefox using the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open, so I couldn't import bookmarks.html into the new Firefox installed on Linux Lite 6.6. I also tried restoring from the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open either.

Is there another way to transfer these bookmarks to the newly installed Firefox on Linux Lite?

When a new bookmark is created it goes to the end of the bookmark listing in the left panel. How can I force Firefox to automatically put each newly created bookmark in the correct alphabetic position in the left panel Bookmarks panel? I DO NOT want to alphabetize the entire panel, I just want each newly created bookmark to go where is alphabetically belongs. I do not use folders so have one long list for bookmarks menu. thank Bob

Through the years (been using FF since its first months) on various computers, various OS and FF versions, I've kept a bunch of bookmarks in my toolbar for frequently used links that I can QUICKLY "right-click, copy link, paste" (3 steps) into social media posts.

Tonight I opened up my bookmark contextual menu, hit copy, pasted it into my Twitter, and it pasted the title instead of the link!!

How useless is that! A title is easy to type out, a long complex url isn't, having a "copy" (title) instead of the "copy link" is entirely useless!

Now to accomplish same, I have go choose "edit" instead of "copy link" and then "click drag" the url then "copy" then "paste" then close the window. 5+ steps instead of 3. Who on Earth thought changing that function was a good idea?! More steps is NEVER a good direction.

IOS: 12.6.3 Firefox 102.9.0esr macbook rebooted cached cleared

Clarification coming from possible answers: Firefox's "Paste" function is working fine, since the url correctly pastes to Mac PAGES and Facebook. It's the paste to Twitter that does "Title" instead of "url". So obviously a Firefox-Twitter problem.

Variation of problem: I tried "Copy" from Firefox Bookmark Subemnu, then went over to Twitter on Chrome, and the "Paste" to Twitter on Chrome also results in a paste of Title instead of url. I tried "Copy" from Chrome Bookmark Submenu, then paste into Twitter on Chrome, and the "Paste" correctly pastes the url. This points to a mis-programming of the Firefox "Copy" function in the bookmark submenu.

Prior to updating to Windows 11 I was able to specify the bookmark folder that I wanted to save the bookmark in when I pressed "Bookmark Current Tab" or "Ctrl-D". Now it automatically saves the bookmark in the "Other Bookmarks" folder instead of allowing me to save it in my desired folder? I then have to find the saved bookmark and manually move it to the desired folder. Is there a fix for this or is this a permanent feature change? Thanks for your help.

Win 10 FF 112.0.2 (just about to update again). 2 Tb HDD x 2 I recently installed a new Sata drive after a previous one showed it was failing. I then had to copy over the partitions slowly over a number of days which meant a lot of disk swapping and partition label changes. I do have rather a lot of partitions between the 2 drives.

Anyway - my FF is on the drive not affected but which did have to be removed in order for the failing drive & the replacement to be mounted to faciliate the data swap. The upshot of which ultimately appears to have been that all my bookmarks no longer have the correct icon unless I visit the site although even then some stubbornly won't update.

Obviously not a major problem but it would be nice to have a quicker fix than wasting half a day visiting each site separately given there must be a few thousand of them :(

Firefox did some update and bookmarks disappeared. So I tried to restore the backup and it is also empty. In fact all the backups seem to not populate any bookmarks. I have another laptop and airdropped the backup file to that laptop to see if I could get the bookmarks back on firefox on there. It worth pointing out that firefox was not updated on my other laptop. When I tried to restore on the other laptop is erased the few bookmarks I had there but didnt give me the missing ones. So now I have 2 computers with no bookmarks.

Please help! Tried to restart , shut down, multiple times and nothing is working.

MacOS 10.13.6
