I have been a fan of the awesomebar for quite some time; tab selection using % enables progress after chaotic web surfing and bookmark searching using * circumvents the need of retracing already known websites. (I have removed suggestions and history though, I find that those are mostly in the way.)

One limitation for me as a programmer is that while searching for Python helps me find the correct bookmarks, including C in a search is not helpful, as a c anywhere in a bookmark will give a hit. This even goes for '.com'! The same problem occurs when searching for bookmarks in the bookmark library.

My suggested improvement would be to allow search terms to be interpreted narrowly. This could be done by adding quotes, for example "C" (single quotes could also work).

Is this already possible in some way? And if not, where would be the best place to suggest the improvement? [feedback page reads "Please check back soon"] ( and I'm not sure whether this suits the Bugzilla platform.

Soo... here is the deal. I was just using the browser when one day my profile that I browsed in just got deleted. Well... not really deleted but secured by a password I did not know. So I amde a new profile and manually moved all my files. That was about 2 months ago. Yesterday I have found out that for some reason most of my history got deleted (In spite of me moving my previous browser history and bookmark files from the other profile) and most of my bookmarks got deleted along with it. Is there anything I can do to get back my browsing history? I got some important stuff there and it would be a shame to lose it.

For all past years, when I save bookmarks, they go to the bottom of my drop down icon. Then I double-click-drag to where I want them in my drop down list. In the past week or so, I can no longer do this. It seems Facebook now forces us to open the bookmarks window???? That's a whole lot of extra steps! In over a decade of Firefox I've maybe opened the bookmarks window a 10 times!

Bring back the ability to move bookmarks in one-quick-step. Why must all firefox "upgrades" make using firefox slower :(

Hi

I got multiple PCs, whereas one is my work laptop. On it I have PDF documents local on my hard drive, and because I use them quite frequently I discovered you can create bookmarks to local files and pinned them on my "New Page", page (see attached image).

The annoying thing about it though is that it syncs that bookmark to my other PCs which leads to nowhere on them. Is there a way to exclude certain bookmarks from Sync? I tried searching for something like that but couldn't find anything.

Continuation of this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310388?page=2#answer-1386708 which I didn't reply to for a while and got archived

Ever since the issue I had with tabs not being restored I've taken to simply bookmarking everything I might need later which has resulted in a large number of Bookmarks

Soon after this I noticed my History wasn't being saved beyond 7 days and thought this might be due to the bookmarks competing for resources with the history

I checked places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages and it's value is 98675

My disk space fluctuates but it never usually dips below 10GB

I'm tried everything I can find online and nothing works. I'm at my wits end here. I exported my bookmarks to HTML on Mac1 across my network, copied them to Mac2 and now I can import them into Firefox, but I cannot get them into the toolbar no matter what I do or which solutions I try to use from online and it's driving me nuts! Why do they have to make this so impossible?

When selecting "show all bookmarks", recent bookmarks cannot be located or manipulated. Why would "recent bookmarks" be hidden and inaccessible to me and not show up on the manage bookmarks/show all bookmarks screens? I would prefer to be able to move my recent bookmarks to various folders, and not only 1 at a time. Thanks for any help.

Okay so last year I built myself a new desktop PC around August 2020. I was using an Android smartphone prior to that and had some bookmarks on it I wanted to transfer to the desktop. I mistakenly thought it would simply 'absorb' those Android bookmarks into the bookmark collection I already had on this new desktop, but after using sync, it straight up removed the desktop bookmarks that were there and replaced them with the android ones exclusively. Another neat little 'feature' is how the bookmarks were also completely erased from the Android device after this.

So once that happened, I restored my old desktop bookmarks, but then the bookmarks that were imported from the Sync from the android were now gone. My question is this: are those sync'd android bookmarks actually anywhere at all, like did Firefox automatically archive them somewhere just in case, or are they just lost completely? Thanks.

I have a few windows of firefox containing many tabs which I have bookmarked, However, One of the windows, When I press Ctrl +Shift+ D, in order to save all the tabs into bookmark, This leads to a unexpected behavior, here is a screenshot that can depict very well on whats occurring.

The expected output of it would include NAME and folder input on the dialog box, That doesn't appear to be the case.

I know I can enter Bookmarks - Show all bookmarks. A complete list of all my bookmarks is displayed. I wish to do this a second time (much like the ancient Norton Commander) so that I can edit and move bookmarks from one column to the other.

I currently have too many bookmarks and organizing is a tedious job of scrolling up and down to move or place a bookmark in a new position. I also note that ctrl c and alt shift will not let me move a group of bookmarks.

Hi, When I search for a bookmark I can find it but I do not see the path of the bookmark in the bookmark tree. Is there a way to see under which subfolder a bookmark is stored when you get a hit in the bookmark search? I think it would be nice to have it in the rest of the description of the bookmark, but "views>show columns" does not have that option.
