Firefox bookmarks has to be the worst designed system in history. Can I make the Add Bookmark window bigger?

This must have been designed by someone with SERIOUS brain damage. Every time I use it it shows its glaring deficiencies. Its like whoever designed it never used bookmarks before in their life and never used it after it was done. I use the term "done" very, very loosely. How can people like this get work?

When you add a bookmark a narrow window opens up (of course you can't resize it) but I wonder if I can change its size in about:config? If you have a lot of folders you can only see a tiny bit of them at once. Its just ludicrous.

Another bizarre thing about the Firefox bookmark system is when you click on a bookmark it overrides your last opened tab. Why on earth would any sane person do that? If you want to close it you can close it anytime. Is there something in about:config that can make it work properly?

Maybe there's an extension with a sane bookmark system that doesn't look like it was designed by a brain damaged nutcase?

Maybe its just an autistic thing. Brilliant in a few areas and totally out to lunch in others. Like common sense. Sorry to be so harsh but I cannot comprehend how Mozilla has not fixed this. Maybe they left Earth and are exploring other worlds.

Yeah I know....I need a bookmark program. Its just kind of convenient to have it built into the browser sometimes. Its more seamless. If only this wasn't so bloody awful. And I do mean bloody.  :)

If only I was smarter so I could code myself.....

Every day, I get multiple bookmarks added to my list that I do not want. They include, among others, things like Get Involved (there are at least dozens of these), About Firefox (again, Dozens), Help and Tutorials (many added). They clog my bookmarks on all things that access Firefox (work computer, home computer, IPhone, IPad) and the only way is to go in an delete them. I don't want nor do I need multiple versions of any of these. For that matter, I don't want even one of each added to my bookmarks. I've looked for help but unless you are a tech expert it's almost impossible to understand how to do that. I just want it to stop or I want to know how to stop it in the simplest way possible.

It's so maddening trying to do something as simple as accessing all my bookmarks! Why?! It's an integral feature of browsing that pinheads around the globe, like me, use on a regular basis? Why does it have to be a mystery easter egg hunt just to find them?! Why does it have to be one of the major topics on your Support page instead of simple, and user friendly, so it's not one of the likely topics people need help with? When I click on the bookmarks symbol, I can access the most recent bookmarks but not the rest. I searched online and the help said to access them in the Library. Where the [expletive] is the library? It's not visible. Not in Settings. Is this browser made for masochists that love torture?! Ahhhgggg!

Hello,

Firefox quit and I restarted the application with all previous browsing tabs. Unfortunately, for some reason, all of my bookmarks (50+) are gone and I cannot find a way to get them back. I do not think I am usually signed into a Firefox account.

Please any help would be much appreciated. I do not recall all the things I've bookmarked.

Hi!

I would really appreciate some assistance. there was an automatic update today and that created a total mess. All my bookmarks reverted back to the ones I had in September 2021.

Even all the extensions were gone after that, which was quite annoying, since I had to start adding them again.

Any ideas how to get it all back?

The bookmark and tabs show my favicon but the firefox empty landing page does not show my favicon. Instead it shows a generated icon...

I have this in my head

``` <link rel="icon" href="/static/favicon.png" /> <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="128x128" href="/static/favicon.png" /> <link rel="manifest" href="/static/manifest.json" crossorigin="use-credentials" /> <link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/png" href="https://fuckedweb3.com/static/favicon.png" /> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="/static/favicon.png" /> <link rel="image/x-icon" size="32x32" type="image/x-icon" href="/favicon.ico" /> ```

I often use the cync, as its very a usefull tool, for when my pc crashes and I have to re-install windows. What is a real pain though, is even when I have the latest version of fire fox installed , after cync has completed, I stll get back many book marks that I have deleted well be before my last recync and with an older version of firefox. Which i find to be a real pain.

Would it not be possible to change the way cync works, ie, you cold add a button, words to the effect "cync from online to you", in that way, I know I am getting the book marks and data I sent up there last time, I cync-ed

Or to cync your data, when wishing to put all your latest bookmarks offline, would it not be possible to "clear online bookmars and data.

Anys I hope this helps you to understand the problem

Many Thanks

I have reinstalled Windows 10 in a new computer, installed a fresh copy of Firefox, and successfully imported my bookmarks from the original computer. But I cannot discover how to export and import my bookmarks toolbar. Another user has attempted to answer the question, but the description is very ambiguous and I can't understand it: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1266729. The following "official" page also does not deal with the issue: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Sorting_and_rearranging_bookmarks_-_Firefox. I would have expected that there would be an "Import or Export Bookmarks Toolbar" facility somewhere, maybe under Menu | Bookmarks | Bookmarks Toolbar - but no luck. Could an explanation be provided?

Hey, hope you guys are well.

I'm trying to read and note an article in Notion (in Firefox desktop browser).

I'd like to select all the text in a Notion page's text, and bold it, using Ctrl B. (For context, this is to clear all the existing bolding in the page.)

I find this command opens the Bookmarks sidebar.

How to turn off this hotkey in Firefox, while keeping it active for the bolding task in Notion?

Thanks!
