I just discovered that in this new improved Firefox, including those wonderfully double spaced bookmarks, I cannot delete the "separator" lines in between them.

I use separator lines to divide bookmarks into groups. I use a LOT (LOT) of bookmarks.

Now, there is no "delete" on a bookmark, which is tolerable because there is instead only "Remove Bookmark," but there is NO way to get rid of the separator lines !!! I used to be able to hover over them and right click and "DELETE" would appear as a choice; just click and it deletes the bookmark.

This function is GONE !!!

Can anybody tell me how to delete separator lines from my list of bookmarks ?? I would be truly grateful.

I accidentally added several separators to my bookmark menu in the newest version of FF 89. There is no way to click on them to remove. Is there a way of removing them without uninstalling the entire firefox browser?

Following problem since last update (89.0, 64bix, Win 10): When I call my list of bookmarks (Alt+L for Lesezeichen in my German Firefox), the lines in my list are much farther apart than before (see attached screen shot). Thus, I now have to scroll down to reach the lower items in the list. What can I do to get back the former, narrow list of bookmarks? Thanks a lot Hansueli Hof

I REALLY dislike the new bookmark pull-down feature, which has larger fonts and far too much space between bookmarks. Now I have to scroll (for which I can't use the mouse) to get to the bottom of a long bookmark list. I prefer older versions.

How may I change the appearance of this feature?

The menu (Bokmarks )has become too large a distance between the lines. Now the menus are getting way too long. Hard to read links and hard to find! Why this completely idiotic design change?

The change in the appearance of the tabs is also strange!

Is it possible to change back to the usual menu line spacing ???

Is there any way to change the time format in most recent visit in Bookmarks from am/pm to 24 hour?

Preferably without having to upload new version. I used Canadian one but after the newest update I tried to go back to older version, there was a bit of mess and long story short I loaded US version instead of Ca and trying to fix by with Ca version forced me to create new profile and it's still in am/pm.

I just want to say that this is ridiculous. Importing bookmarks from HTML (which was exported from the same Firefox browser but on a different system) does not work at all. I also tested this with HTML exported bookmarks from other browsers as well. I select the file, click import and nothing happens, nothing at all. I have even updated to the latest version of Firefox and guess what? It still does not work. How? Please explain how your software can be this bad. And please don't ask me if I clicked the right button, giving me instructions on how to do the thing that I already did 100 times.

My recollection is that when I used to want to reassign a bookmark to a different folder, I just brought up the bookmarked page and used the ctrl+D shortcut to add it to the new folder--and the old bookmark was gone. Now it seems that when I do that, the old bookmark remains, so that I now have the same page bookmarked in two places. Is this a change I was not aware of? Is there a different procedure to move (rather than duplicate) the bookmark?

I hope to find out how I can use bookmarks easier. Is there a way to bring up a list of all my bookmarks with only 1 click of the mouse? Right now when I hit the small star icon it then makes me click 1 of several choices. It would be much more convenient to need only 1 click to open the entire list. Secondly I want to arrange permanently the bookmarks in alphabetical order but even if I do this successfully the next time I open the bookmark list they are not in order. This happens every time I try to fix it. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I'm running Firefox 88.0.1 on a Windows 7 desktop and a Mac OS 10.14.6 laptop. After syncing the bookmarks on both machines for the first time, the Mac can no longer save new bookmarks or edit old ones. The PC, on the other hand, is fine. I don't know if something went awry during the sync process or if this problem has nothing to do with that, but the timing is suspicious.

I tried disconnecting the Mac and PC, turning off sync, and restarting Firefox, but that didn't solve the problem. Then I ran the Verify Integrity check on the Mac and got this result:

Another possible issue is that I recently installed the following extensions on the Mac: Disconnect, Facebook Container, HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin. The PC already runs all those extensions except for HTTPS Everywhere. I also just installed Bitdefender antivirus on the Mac. I've been using Bitdefender on the PC for years with no issues.

Any thoughts on what I should do next? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
