Hello,

My email that I use for my old sync account changed and I no longer have access to that email account. There are many bookmarks associated with it. I still have access to those bookmarks and account on my iPhone. I created a new sync account with my new email address and would like to copy all of those bookmarks that I can access on my iPhone to the new account. Is there a way to do this? I know you can save bookmark files on a PC, but I don't know where/how to do this on my iPhone.

Restore Firefox bookmarks after password change

Hello,

My computer had an issue with one of its drives and I was logged out of my Firefox account. I couldn't find the password so I thought resetting it would be faster than trying all my passwords, especially with the 15 minutes wait every X tries. I was horrified when I found out my bookmarks and saved data was deleted when changing the password, something that should be CLEARLY communicated beforehand. I am devastated that years worth of work was destroyed just like that. I had some very valuable data there, and my folders will litterally take weeks if not months to restore by hand.

Hopefully I didn't update the password on my smartphone yet. Is there any way to export the bookmarks from it? Otherwise, would it be possible to revert this change on Firefox's side? I just can't stress enough how valuable this data was to me.

I looked for saved profile data on my computer, but of course everything I had locally before the password change was overwritten by the new data.

Please help me, I just don't understand this choice from Mozilla. What's the point of syncing your data if it gets completely deleted?? I might as well have created a new account from scratch.

I have Firefox installed and synced across several PCs and mobile devices, and on various operating systems. Lately, my bookmarks (I keep them all in the Bookmarks Toolbar for easy access) become duplicated - 8 or 9 times duplicated - and they all seem to leave their sub-folders and become scattered across the toolbar. Additionally, multiple entries of these bookmarks are copied into the Bookmarks Menu folder.

Is there a fix for this, aside from disconnecting from the sync feature?

The latest Firefox update changed easy access to bookmarks and subcategories contained within. Every time I go to bookmarks now it defaults back to all categories and then I have to make numerous selections to get to the category and specific web site I want. After viewing and then wanting to select a new bookmark in the same category, the entire process has to start over from the beginning. Very time consuming and frustrating. This changed happened with the latest update as I have not updated a different iOS device yet and the problem doesn’t exist there. What happened?

My surface pro 7 with windows 10 or 11 will not create desktop shortcut from firefox (ver. 98.0.1 64 bit) using drag and drop with pen but will work using touch pad. I originally noticed this problem while running windows 11 on my surface pro 7. After doing some basic trouble shooting on my own I ended up re-imaging my surface pro 7 back to windows 10, I wasn't really thrilled with windows 11 anyway. At this point every thing worked normally. However, at some point firefox updated and the problem recurred. While using the touch pad is an acceptable work around when the keyboard is attached, using it as a tablet without the keyboard is a bit of an issue. Finger or pen is needed but won't work. thanks for your attention to this matter, it is appreciated.

Bookmark Mayhem

I have Firefox 98.0.1 in 64 Bit on Win7 Pro. I attempted to export via HTML my bookmarks from the 32 bit version into the 64 bit version I'm now using 99% of the time. I imported the HTML file using Manager/Bookmarks/Library and ended up with three Bookmarks Toolbars folders and many bookmarks I don't need. I deleted the unwanted bookmarks, however, they still appear when I click open the "Bookmark" at the top of the browser page. Reboot didn't correct issue, nor Refresh. Ideally, I'd like to delete ALL the bookmarks, using the Manager, and just import the bookmarks from the HTML file I have from the 32 bit. I don't see a complication arising from moving to 64 bit from 32 bit. I've made several attempts to clean this mess up, but no success.

Hi, can I please get help with this, I have saved bookmarks in my own folder, and exported them and they are saved on my desktop, when I import them they show in toolbar however as a folder and not Individual links like before.

For example before it would youtube.com etc.

Now it's bookmarks and I need to open that and in that is youtube.com.

What can I do to show all the links in the toolbar and not the folder?

Thank you.

Sometimes tabs do not produce the site owners favicon when bookmarked and only a "globe" icon is displayed in the Bookmarks Toolbar. Can anyone recommend a foolproof favicon editor that works and has understandable instruction on how to work it. I've tried two or three and cannot see how to use them or the instructions do not seem to have any relevance to what I see on my screen.

If you do recommend an add-on, can you also give an idiots version of how to use it.

Thanks.
