How do I delete a single bookmark? The instructions in your help file do not work. I click on the blue star in the top right corner, hit "Delete bookmark," but the bookmark does not delete. I have tried shutting down Firefox and restarting after giving the delete command, but no dice. The bookmark seems immortal! Using Mac OS 10.13.6.

A couple of months back, and entire bookmark folder suddenly disappeared. I assumed that I had inadvertently done something to cause this, though it had never happened before. Today, not only is another folder gone missing, several others have as well. I am using Windows 10 Pro, Version 1909, Build 18363.900. I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome for security issues, but unless I can figure out what is happening here, I am going to switch back. Any ideas?

Hi, When I turned on my computer this morning, my bookmarks were not there. I've tried the steps laid out by Firefox, but no success. I tried another browser, Safari, which I seldom use, and Safari bookmarks were still there. I have many different bookmarks in Firefox so I'd rather not switch over to Safari unless absolutely necessary. Nothing else is missing, so I doubt if I've been hacked. I did check a bank account, which was fine. I'm not a high profile person, so I doubt if I've been targeted. And I see the pic of the lock closed in the URL bar constantly. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I'm on Mac OS 10.15.5 (Catalina) Firefox 78.0.1 (64bit) Thanks, JJ

I have favourite most used sites on my toolbar - e.g. gmail, facebook. From last week each time I open up my computer if I want to go to one of these I have to sign in all over again. This never used to happen. It is driving me crazy. Any idea how to stop it happening please? Otherwise I shall have to stop using Firefox.

I have my bookmarks sorted into folders and I want to search a specific folder. I went to Bookmarks>Show All Bookmarks and I selected the folder I want, which happens to be Quilting. I know I have a bookmark for a quilt with pine trees so I put tree in the Search Bookmarks box and I get every bookmark with the word tree. Not just bookmarks in Quilting but in every folder. Can you search just a specific folder?

I have just purchased a new iMac. The retailer instakked all myold software, including Firefox. When I opened Firefox I found a number of bookmarks for companies with which I no longer have any deakings, and I tried to delete them, following the proceedures in Firefox Help. But it didn't work, either way. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of these annoying bookmarks?

Just in the last 2 weeks, QVC (which I have had on all of my computers for years as a bookmark) is now being blocked with a message saying access denied. This is the ONLY site out of all I use being blocked. Can anybody tell me why this is happening? I can use my Amazon fire tablet or phone and it works perfectly on them.

This seems to have occurred with latest update. I could manage bookmarks with initial Catalina update. Have tried all suggestions, but bookmarks still frozen. Luckily I can use bookmarks, but just can't add, delete, rename. Am afraid to try very complicated maneuvers for fear of causing worse problems. May have to involve local NERD group to solve this problem. It is unfortunate that Firefox can't offer fixes for this. Don't want to have to eliminate Firefox and use another browser just because of this bookmark problem. Have spent many hours trying to solve this with no luck. Hopefully someone out there will have easy solution

Firefox was running slow and it recommended to perform a reset. After the reset all of my bookmarks were lost and not restored. I found the backups of the bookmarks and each of the stored backups gives the same error "unable to process file". I tried this on all of the files. How can I get my bookmarks restored?

I have always been able to move bookmarks into folders to organize them. That's why we have folders, right? So now all of a sudden my bookmarks won't move, I can't "grasp" them with my pointer. It doesn't work. Why is that? The date I noticed this beginning is 7/21/2020
