For years had bookmarks in folders showing on Bookmark Toolbar. Today they are all gone. Still in my Bookmarks on the drop down Menu, but not appearing on the Toolbar. Please help. Can't seem to drop and drag them there. Also, the Bookmarks Toolbar keeps disappearing every time I go to look at a new tab.

This issue has arisen on Firefox for Linux Mint (my current version is 123.0 (64bit)). I like Firefox, and I like its bookmarks toolbar, and have used it for many years, but there seems to be a new bug introduced today:- The bookmarks toolbar is present and correct when I start Firefox, but now it disappears as soon as I select any bookmark, or if I enter any web address or if I open a new tab. The [View >Toolbars > Bookmarks Toolbar > Alway Show] option is already selected, but the toolbar is no longer visible. If I click on it again, the bookmarks toolbar reappears (or I can restart Firefox, and this will also restore the toolbar). But the toolbar now disappears as soon as I use the browser in any way, and so is currently not really of practical use, as it needs constant restoring. Hope you can help resolve this. Many thanks in advance

Hi, my bookmarks toolbar doesn’t show when I launch Firefox. They always use to. When I click on View>Toolbar>Bookmarks Toolbar>Always Show - the Bar shows. When I click on any bookmark the bar disappears. If (in new window) I click on View>Toolbar>Bookmarks Toolbar>Always Show - the bar appears, when I then open new tab it does not show on new tab and when I click back to previous tab bookmarks are gone.

I have restarted W10 PC, no change.

Hope you can help, many thanks, David

Why can I not keep my Bookmark Folders in alphabetical order? Yes, I know I can see them alphabetically as an option in "Manage Bookmarks" but I am tired of scrolling up and down trying to find the proper folder to put my Bookmark into when I am saving a new Bookmark. This design or lack there of makes Firefox feel old and clunky.

I have downloaded Firefox 117. I am currently on Firefox 102.15. So I want to transfer my bookmarks to the new version, as well as some recent history. I am unable to find these files to import when using Firefox 117. Also I says that version 102.15 is the most up to date version of Firefox. So this is confusing.

When using private browsing window, bookmarks toolbar keeps disappearing every time I open a new tab or anything else. My setting for show bookmarks is "always show" and it works normally in a regular window. It also used to work normally in private browsing until a few days ago. Clicking "show bookmarks toolbar" works until I open any of the bookmarks, then the toolbar disappears again. How do I make the toolbar permanently visible in a private browsing window?

Bookmarks restoration from backups

This morning (first thing!) I had a cat partially lay and the keyboard, with my bookmarks "History" open, and, before I could remove her, she pressed the Delete key on the numeric keypad and deleted several bookmarks in rapid succession. After a few seconds of debate with myself, I elected to use the "Restore" feature under "Import and Backup" and restore the previous day's bookmarks.

There's a little detail, though. For whatever reason, the majority of my bookmarks (all the *current* ones) are under "Other Bookmarks", which I assumed was of no matter. However, after the restoration was complete, I noticed that while all bookmarks under "Bookmarks Menu" were restored, the "Other Bookmarks" folder was empty. In actual effect, ALL my bookmarks are missing!

I followed advice posted at the Mozilla support forum (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1355129) and used a tool (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1355129#answer-1453428) to view the contents of my previous day's JSON backup file, and it *does* indeed contain references to the last pages visited that day. However, after doing a backup with that particular compressed JSON file, the contents of the folder "Other Bookmarks" was NOT regenerated, and it's NOT in the restored "Bookmarks Menu" folder either (only old stuff). And I've just noticed that my "Bookmarks Toolbar" (which contained numerous entries) was not restored either.

I need some guidance at this point. The compressed JSON backup file evidently contains the backed up data (including, I assume, the "Bookmarks Toolbar" data). I can't restore it.

It is sad, I think, that Mozilla/Firefox is willing to close/archive a thread that is not really solved or has reared its ugly head again in versions since the release of 93 (we are now at 97.0.2). I came to this site and registered because I am still having this issue as of 3/6/2022...arg!

I have tried the 3 recommended solutions, with no affect:

I have, as one article suggested, cleared my cache and cookies, started and restarted Firefox; the only thing I have not tried is removing it from my computer and using Chrome (I'm told it is a better browser anyway) as some responders have eluded to.

I hope that responders like "jscher2000, Kymber" will continue the champion this issue until Mozilla gets it "Really" fixed.

Thanks for listening, Wayne

BTW, heres what my dropdowns look like today 3/6/2022 6:17 PM Arizona time.

I'm running Mojave on an Imac. I have just installed Firefox 2, updating from an older Firefox. All bookmarks are saved in a bookmarks backup .jsonlz4 file in the original Firefox Profiles folder on the Mac. I have done Import & Backup / Restore / Choose file to no avail. Nothing happened, and there are no bookmarks under the bookmark dropdown on the new Firefox browser.

The path to the Profiles backup folder runs through several levels of hidden folders. Using Terminal, I've managed to unhide all but one stubborn Library folder that is preventing me from navigating to the Profiles backup file to select it for restoration. I managed to unhide the backup file itself and save a copy to the desktop. I'm guessing that the desktop copy is not going to help me, because I'll need the path to point back to the Profiles folder.

I'm stumped. How can I transfer these bookmarks to Firefox 2? It shouldn't be this hard.

I messed up firefox and uninstalled it. Then I forgot the password and changed it. My other computers still have my settings, but with a different password. Should I change the password back to get all my settings back?

I found the correct password on another computer. The other computer still has all the correct bookmarks and add-ons. I really, really, really can't lose all those settings. I will also need to be adding a table to the same account.
