How do I get rid of the extremely annoying and useless "Other Bookmarks" folder which I NEVER use? This forum is misleading because it says only 3 people have this problem. I'm sure there are many thousands but it is almost impossible to comment or reply. It was a major puzzle for me to get this far. Firefox should to make a simple list of bookmarks available, when you have the Bookmarks symbol on the toolbar. It should be the default instead of hiding them in "other folders". If someone wants to make it more complex they easily can add folders. The default now is too complex and difficult to change. Every time I need to add the Firefox browser to a new operating system I need to do extensive research and fiddling just to simplify because I cannot remember the gymnastics I had to go through the last time.This time it made me so exasperated I nearly gave up went to Edge.

When I add a new bookmark, it goes to the top of the Bookmarks menu, pushing down the sites that I want there because I visit them most frequently. How can I get new bookmarks to appear at the end of the Bookmarks menu? Thank you.

Bookmarks toolbar missing - but in just some windows

For about a month now I have had an issue with my Bookmarks toolbar disappearing. I have a few different windows that I always keep open and each has a few tabs open or pinned. On just some of those windows, the "bookmarks toolbar" has disappeared (it was there, then it was not). I definitely have "bookmarks toolbar" checked in customizing, so that is not the issue. I found a trick that if I move one or more tabs into a new window (slide to side) that the new window would then have the bookmarks toolbar back. BUT, when I tried that today, I would only have the bookmarks toolbar showing when the window was reduced in size, but if I expanded to full screen, it disappears. How do I get my "bookmarks toolbar" to ALWAYS show in all windows? The only thing that I have changed in my behavior is that I now keep several tabs pinned... wondering if somehow that is causing problems? Please note, I have tried resetting customizing and rechecking "bookmarks toolbar" but that has not resolved the issue. The only extensions or any add-ons that I have are "Adblocker Ultimate" and "Facebook Container". And no themes. I have not "refreshed firefox" because of how much work that would involve to save history, get eveything back to the way I like it, etc., so I am hoping to not have to do that unless you know for sure that would resolve my problem. Thanks.

Hi all,

I have had an account signed in to Firefox browser that held tens and tens of bookmarks. I had all my bookmarks linked to my profile before I sent it in for repair.

I received my laptop a couple of days ago and I can see the web history going back to when I purchased the laptop, but there are no bookmarks (save a single one) from before I sent in my laptop for repair.

I looked at the about:profiles but one is a default profile with no history and one is default-release with my web history (and one bookmark). Neither have my the entirety of my bookmarks.

Please let me know if there's anything I can do to recover my BMs.

Thanks.

I've tried every solution already on this forum. I've gone from 1) never seeing any history or being able to save a bookmark, to 2) being able to save them and have history while the browser is open (they'd vanish when I'd close it), to 3) now history and bookmarks will stay if I close the browser, but as soon as my computer is turned off and on again, they are gone. So I guess there's progress being made, but I still would like to have a fully-functioning browser. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times, hoping that would fix it. Please help.

Because FireFox has been running so slowly, a few minutes ago I chose to Refresh FireFox. The web page said bookmarks and other things would be preserved, but after the refresh FireFox has no bookmarks. I have tried the Restore option under Import and Backups on the Library panel and chose the most recent listing (dated today), but FireFox says "Unable to process the backup file". It also can't process any other, earlier, entry listed.

Is there anything I can do to try to get my bookmarks back, or has FireFox totally hosed me?

Thanks,

Can Bookmark folders get sorted automatically so that they appear withing the context of all sorted bookmarks, rather than at the top? (I mean within the context of a bookmarked folder.) For example, suppose I have a Bookmarks Folder called Folder A. Its contents look like: Folder Folder Bookmark Bookmark...

But what i want is: Bookmark Bookmark Folder Bookmark Folder (Alpha order assumed.) I want them strictly alpha, regardless of file/folder property, as displayed in 'ls -l'. Having to do this manually is annoying.

Hi. The message "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..." has appeared at the top of my Firefox window. I don't think it's been there for more than a couple of days, so it must have been added by a recent update. I already have my bookmarks available just fine, so is there a way to get rid of the message? Thanks!

Hi group, over the years I encounterd sevaral times that my tabs were gone after a restart Since (I guess) version 60 this has not happened again so I thought it was fixed, untill today

By accident I closed Firefox, and after it had restarted all my tabs were gone, despite the fact that I have "restore previous" set in my preferences

I would like to hear If there is a way to save these tabs outside FF and how to do that
