Hi, I have been using Firefox for years without problems, and suddenly the vast majority of my bookmarks -- while retaining the link designation -- have been replaced with links to Amazon products. I uninstalled Firefox, re-installed, and reloaded the links, and for a few hours last night, the bookmarks linked correctly to the intended addresses, but now it's back to an invasion by links to Amazon products, hidden behind the bookmark names.

My bookmarks does not show the icons of the bookmarked items. It just show a generic icon like a globe. On my other PC it shows the icon of the companies bookmarked. For example the Citibank, it shows the Icon of the Citibank, or Kaiser Permanente, it shows the icon of Kaiser. How do I set my Firefox to do the same?

Hello, I am using Firefox 78.15.15.0 esr (64 bit) on an iMac Desktop with OS X ElCapitan 10.11.6

When I try to open any bookmark or anything with an URL I get only a blank Tab. In Preferences I can see all my Bookmarks, History, Home page URL, Firefox Home, Cookies and Site data. The Applications box contains only; irc always ask, ircs always ask, mailto use mail and PDF open in firefox. I Refreshed Firefox and got the Old Firefox Data folder. The files for Bookmarks, Downloads, Browsing History, Passwords, and Cookies all have the same values in the Old and Current Profiles. File types "handlers.jason" value is 2KB in the Old and 540 bytes in the Current. I also tried restarting in Safe Mode with no improvement. I have read through most of the articles and links but not being an expert can't see a clear step by step path to resolution. I would appreciate any help you can give to resolve this matter. Thank you. Pete

The browsing history works fine, with one exception: once you click on an older link to reuse it or even to simply look at it, the older link is removed an replaced by the new one.

This is very disturbing whenever you need the older link's timestamp as a proof you accessed the corresponding page at a given time.

Is there any possibility for the user to avoid this behavior?

Ok, i start the computer, open Firefox and it says Firefox is slow opening, reset. So i click the reset button, it then wipes my toolbars, history, homepage and most other information. That in itself is not really a problem, but the thing is it will now not bookmark pages. There is a couple of ways to bookmark a page and none of them will work Any ideas ?

Cheers

Hello.

Hope you can help me. Yesterday for some unknow reasons I lost all my bookmarks, add on, plug ins, all my browsing history as well as 4 firefox sessions referring to specific topics I was researching, each session with 3-4 tabs. I think the laptop froze and after a while restarted. I restarted firefox, version 83, hoping that "restore session" would kick in but unfortunately nothing like that happened. I've tried different things but not succeded. I also managed to update the browser to the latest version (84.0.1). Is there a way i could recover all sessions and bookmarks etc and how as that is really important to me? Thanks in advance for your help. Tom

Whenever I close and reopen Firefox now, my bookmarks do not come through and I can't restore the tabs that were open. Is this because Firefox now requires you to sign in? (I really don't want to do that.)

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!

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 reinstalled Win10, clean install. Reinstalled Firefox, v88 and imported my bookmarks (.json). Took a while (36.4Mo) but they got imported and I got to sort the latest bookmarks them into folders and tags while I transferred files from a hard drive. Trimmed them to 31 Mo and saved a backup. Exited firefox. Later I launch firefox to install addons and notice all my latest bookmarks have vanished. All my tags are gone too.

When I check to restore my backup, I have the choice between - today's automated backup (11 Mo; 110.000 items) 100.000 items, that is, half of my bookmarks. - ... or my manual save I did. Restoring my manual save returns the bookmarks and tags. But they disappear when I exit firefox. Sitting for half a hour for my bookmarks to load each time I launch firefox is not a solution. I estimate there's 70k to 100k links and 1k tags missing.

I have one only profile. Fresh, latest FF, no addons. No clue too.
