Hello, I accidentally transferred my Google Chrome data to Firefox, and as a result, all my bookmarks, passwords, email addresses, and everything else ended up in Firefox. I do not want this, and I want a fresh installation of Firefox with no bookmarks or saved passwords. Please help me with this.

Bookmark empty folders problem

I have a PC desktop and laptop. Bookmarks have always been synced in the past. I have just been away for 6 weeks and added and changed many bookmarks on the laptop. I confess I do have a lot built up over the years. When I came back home I expected to sync as in the past without problem to the desktop. However sync wouldn't happen although both were ON and on same wi-fi. So I restored into the desktop a json file I had made on the laptop just before coming home. I also have a json file made on the desktop just before leaving.

Disaster. While all the bookmarks may be there on the desktop (I don't know) all the folders are now empty and all bookmarks are simply in one huge unusable list in the bookmarks menu. Same result with the desktop json file. It would take days to put them all back into folders one by one. Having tried various things now my laptop is the same !

Why did this happen ? How do I get the bookmarks back into all the folders ?

Unable to sync (update bookmarks made on another macbook air 11.7.7 Big Sur/current firefox), despite: clearing cache/cookies turning off macbook air (others are macbook pro) ran troubleshooting-it read 'false' for bookmarks but could not make 'true'! tried repeated sync 'now'..display took a while after trouble/refresh modes, then solid blue...still no updated bookmarks-WEIRDEST is the sync settings after pressing sync now will show the bookmarks check box immed. if I re-select it..but after going out and then back into sync setting prefs, the bookmarks check box is again unchecked (NOTE-I can't tell if that is default since I just ran a sync now, but it would be strange that it keeps removing it as a pref). The other macs are updating to each other fine..and are SAME identity (tho one macbook pro of 2 is old=2010, and is using 10.7.7.

 These are older machines.  The only thing that I note differing in the macbook air I'm having trouble with, is it was bought/wiped from a used computer company, so sometimes readss "Soonersoft's Mac" even though I have all correct admin settings! I've no idea how to remove that other owner name (shows up when I do a system restore from disc, for example). I don't want to ramess with that b/c it presents no issues anywhere I'm aware of.....

Frustrating, esp. b/c other two macbook pros sync bookmarks fine! HOW DO I CHANGE SYSTEM DETAIL TROUBLESHOOT REPORT WHERE IT SAYS 'BOOKMARKS=FALSE?" TO TRUE??!?

Firefox creates copies of bookmark folders, e.g there were 72 folders called Other Bookmarks. They seemed to all be copies of one of two folders. Searching bookmarks takes too long to do. And it takes quite a time to delete these copies. And if I do delete them all, will new ones be created? What causes these copies to be created?

Hi

I use Firefox at work on 2 different computers. Firefox sync is unfortunately disabled and not an option.

Is there any way I can sync my bookmarks / profile between the 2 machines?

I do have access to Dropbox. Is it possible to use that to somehow sync the bookmarks between the 2 machines? Doesn't have to be in real time.

Right now I am manually exporting bookmarks and re-importing every time I switch computers.

View bookmarks with one click (i.e. from a top level interface control)

I would like to be able to view my bookmarks (not the toolbar) with one click and then open a bookmark with the second click. Is this possible?

The interface has top level controls for a promotional "feature" called "Pocket"; the extensions menu of all things; "toggle reader view" (which inexplicably opens some kind of FAQ page and which has forced me to retype this question by opening something else in the window instead of merely changing the display of the current window), and "list all tabs"—basically a bunch of features that I imagine very very very few people ever use. But no button for bookmarks? What am I missing?

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.

OS - LinuxLite 6.4 fully updated as of this writing FF - 117.0

I just created a new installation of LinuxLite. Upon finding that Firefox was no longer the default browser I installed it. Apparently snapd is a pre-req and it too was installed. The installer does not automatically create a link to launch it and I have to do a search for FF. When I launch it, it seems to run fine. However when I try to restore my bookmarks from a recently created backup, which came from another system, I cannot. From bookmark manager when I select restore and then choose file, nothing happens. No popup window to select the file appears. Likewise when I try to import from an HTML file and choose file, again nothing happens. I imported the bookmarks to Chrome from the HTML file then tried to have FF import from another browser but FF says it can find NO other browser with bookmark, history or password data. Any suggestions?
