Running FF 117.01 I ran Scanguard and now none of my Firefox bookmarks work. All are still showing up where they were, but none of the bookmarks led anywhere, when I click on them, nothing. Restarted FF, restarted the laptop. I also cannot seem to open the About Profiles page to check there. I would rather get this working if I can, other than re-installing. Thank you for any help.

Hi, My computer was having some issues and I thought that I transfer everything to a flash drive to transfer my information to a new computer. Come to find out it didn't transfer over to the flash drive. So everything is lost. My book marks and my saved web sites and passwords to them. I was wondering is there any way that you can help to retrieve them?

I think I have looked through all of the troubleshooting suggestions for loading / importing old Firefox Bookmarks following a new Windows install.

- I did not have Mozilla Sync turned on. - My new install of Mozilla doesn't have restore points from my old install / program files. - My old SSD is accessible, however, User folder directories don't have the 'AppData/' folder directory. - Of course, I didn't think about / have a chance to create a manual restore point prior to my computer's crash.

Copying over my old Mozilla parent directories from my old SSD directory to my new SSD directory, hasn't restored prior Mozilla settings / bookmarks.

Does Mozilla store bookmarks anywhere else ?

The website https://www.cvs.com/ and the website https://www.cvs.com/otchs/bcbsma access two different websites with two different user/password. But there is no way to tell Firefox to have two different sets of user/password for each URL. When trying to access https://www.cvs.com/otchs/bcbsma, Firefox tries to log in with the user/password of https://www.cvs.com, which does not work. The two URLs have different user names, dictated by the websites

Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

I have downloaded an older version of Firefox browser. I thought I was able to keep my current Firefox browser and still download the older version.

Now all my folders and bookmarks are gone because my newer browser version was overwritten by the older browser version. How do I use a previous Firefox profile which has all my folders & bookmarks?

thank you for your help, JoAnne Johnson

i would like to be able to remove ANY bookmark at ANY time from the main menu, not the bookmark bar but the icons in the middle of screen when you open the browser

I cant delete half of them, they flicker for a millisecond and dont disappear. how? i feel like clicking dismiss should forcefully remove the icon. it doesn't and this just makes me a little angry.

add the ability to click on the 3 dots and click a new button called DELETE. it should fix the issue by removing it.

Is it possible to perform partial bookmarks sync?

Let's say, bookmarks from machine A that are synced to the server completely would be then synced from the server to a bookmarks subfolder on machine B, is it possible? The rest of the bookmarks on machine B would need not to sync to the server in such case.

Alternatively, both machines sync to the server but the user would need to specify which bookmark sections (folders) need to be synced and which not, thus avoiding duplication and maintaining consistency.

I had to re-install Windows 11 after the last major Windows update. I cannot find a copy of my bookmarksmenu or bookmark bar (I am translating from Dutch) in Windows.old. I did have Firefox synchronized with my Android phone, so all of those bookmarks are still in Firefox Android (on my phone). I would like to get them all back, but the phone clearly says that the synchronisation feature is NOT for backing up or restoring this kind of stuff. On the phone the Settings and clicking on my email address says, that the last synchronisation took place 1 minute ago, but indeed, the bookmarks are not back on my computer's Firefox. I hate to initiate a synchronisation from my computer (don't even know how) and then have the synchronisation overwrite the favorites and bookmarks on my phone. None of the help files or articles give any indiction whether you can dictate the direction of the synchronisation or whether that is even a thing. So basically, I seem to have no backup of my favorites or bookmark, other than what's in Firefox for Android. How can I restore them from there. I read I can import them in the desktop version, but I don't find any info on how to export them from Android. Help!

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.
