3 February 2021

I use a toolbar. Sorry, I'm old fashioned. When I install a new linux system, the first thing I do is change firefox to show the toolbar. There is a 'Bookmarks' item on the toolbar. When you click it, it gives you a menu of several options, including 'Bookmark This Page Ctrl+D'.

Until recently, clicking on that option opened a popup that allowed you to select a sub-folder to put the bookmark in. That was extremely useful because a flat list gets very long very quickly. You could of course just click on save bookmark in the popup and it gets added to the flat list, or, as I do, you could first select a sub-folder.

Now, clicking 'Bookmark This Page Ctrl+D' results in the bookmark immediately being saved to the flat list and a little alert momentarily pops up declaring 'saved to library'. Apparently 'library' is the same as 'other bookmarks'. How very clear (sarcasm). In addition to not knowing where the bookmark actually is, I now have to manually move it to the desired sub-folder with several other clicks. How convenient (sarcasm).

I want the old behavior back. How do I get it?

By the way, I am very old fashioned. I don't register with websites, even firefox. I used an email blackhole to sign up. I will come back here periodically (once a day) to see if there are any useful answers or questions asking for clarification. I've bookmarked this page, so it should be easy. When I'm done, I'll disappear forever, thank you very much.

I am VERY VERY ATTACHED to my bookmarks in my previous Firefox browser. Somehow Chrome ended up syncing its old set of bookmarks into Firefox which is a huge downgrade and loss of information. Is there a way for me to retrieve the previous set of bookmarks that I had spent so much time adding to?

Hello guys,

first of all: Sorry for my bad english. Im trying to explain as well as I can.

I activated in Settings, that I only get suggestions from my bookmark (and not from Google etc.)

I entered on the bookmark a full reflink on Amazon (https://www.amazon.de/ref=as_li_ss_tl?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1638&creative=19454&linkCode=ur2&site-redirect=de&tag=wwwtwitcht0b2-21)

But when I enter on the bar Am.. the first suggestion is always https://www.amazon.de/ and not https://www.amazon.de/ref=as_li_ss_tl?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1638&creative=19454&linkCode=ur2&site-redirect=de&tag=wwwtwitcht0b2-21.

Even if I dont saved https://www.amazon.de/ . This happens with everysite that the main url is shown in first place, but not the one which i saved (and wanted to open).

Is there any solution?

Thank you for your time.

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to find in which folder a specific bookmark is contained ? I can do a search on the "Show all Bookmarks" library but it only shows the URL without the folder. In Chrome there is a useful feature which let you easily highlight the location. It's very strange that isn't possible in Firefox.

There is an archived post here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1161879 but the tricky workaround is not acceptable for me. Any ideas ? Thanks in advance Stefano

hi,

I have a new install of firefox (78.7.1esr) on a new Apple Mac (10.15.7 Catalina). I used sync to sync bookmarks from an ubuntu install (85.0.1) onto the Mac.

The bookmarks arrived. They are visible on the bookmarks toolbar, bookmarks menu, and bookmarks / show all bookmarks. I can add new bookmarks using drag and drop, or by the bookmarks menu options. These bookmarks can be seen in the Bookmarks / Show All Bookmarks menu. But they do not appear in the bookmarks toolbar. It's as if there are 2 sets both started from the same sync.

  • Bookmarks added by drag and drop visible through the toolbar
  • Those added with add bookmark or show all bookmarks within the toolbar folder do not appear on the toolbar.

I've now got what looks like 2 sets that are drifting out of sync on the same latptop.


thanks for any help.
