For well over a year, I have had this problem: Many times when I selected a bookmark, nothing happens. It does not go to the bookmarked site. I have tried the following things: 1. Start FF in safe mode. 2. changed OS from Windows 7 to Windows 10. 3. Made sure my OS and browser were up to date. 4. Tried different Antivirus programs.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you so much!

Firefox recently updated automatically and when i went into the browser all my bookmarks are gone. i have tried restoring them from the most recent back up and they still don't load. i searched the blogs and go thru the troubleshooting options with no luck. this is very frustrating as i had tons of sites i don't visit often saved in the bookmarks which are not gone.

any assistance or guidance on how to get these back is appreciated.

editDialog is broken

I can't get Firefox to show the bookmark editor. I thought i may have accidentally manually disabled it for new bookmarks, but when i tried to access it on an existing bookmark, it wouldn't come up. The star button still has an "Edit this bookmark (Ctrl+D)" tooltip, but does nothing when clicked. Ctrl+D does nothing further on an existing bookmark. I went into about:config, and the browser.bookmarks.editDialog.showForNewBookmarks option was set to true. I went ahead and toggled it off and on again to see if it would refresh or something, to no effect. Ultimately, i guess that's beside the point, as i can't even bring it up for existing bookmarks.Any suggestions, beside going in and manually shuffling each new bookmark into a folder from the library?

I need to update Firefox on my Laptop but when I updated it on my PC I lost all my Bookmarks and I can't do that. I am using Windows 10. It should be built in the programs that when you update your Bookmarks are automatically moved.

Hi all, Once and a while, suddenly, bookmarks can´t be saved any longer. So I restart Firefox and all is ok again. This happens perhaps twice a month. - Existing Bookmarks can be opened, but can´t be moved in the structure. - This issue exists since many Firefox versions. - The *.sqlite files are not write protected. - All Add Ons are switched off.

I have to close for each new start of Firefox all windows and so I am loosing the workflow :-(. Does anybody know about this issue? Many thanks Achim

Good day,

It would appear that there was an update in the past 24hrs because my tabs appear different (rounder). However, now my bookmarks drop-down menu is all different and messed-up, and I can't delete the things added. Please see the screenshot enclosed...

I now have "Manage Bookmarks" at the top - which is fine. I have "Other Bookmarks" - which I thought I killed a LONG time ago. I have an ADDITIONAL "Manage Bookmarks" at the bottom - which seems redundant, and excessive.

I've done my homework, tried tinkering with old solutions. I cannot delete, move, rename, hide or change any of these. I would ideally like to remove everything except the 1st "Manage Bookmarks" at the top. That seems reasonable.

Thanks for your time and help! William (FF89)

The thing I liked best about Firefox was the text of the links for the bookmarks were close together, so I could see a LOT of them with little space. That has changed in the recent upgrade. How do I revert to the older version? Or, how do I configure the newer version so that the bookmarks are listed more tightly packed together.
