Hi. I'm trying to organise my bookmarks, and whilst I am able to add, move and remove bookmarks themselves, I can't do anything about folders, even duplicates. Deleting in Firefox's GUI does nothing, and if I try to use a bookmark managing extension, it doesn't work either. What's going on?

I've been digging around in my system for a corresponding .txt file or whatever to manually edit, but it seems it's all on Mozilla's servers, or the file is in some obscure format I can't easily edit. Is this something to do with Firefox Sync?

Please continue here: [/questions/1329921]
I have followed all the instructions re how to delete bookmarks. Nothing works. Each time I try to mark all and delete - they multiply - by doubles or triples -- and then the whole Mozilla crashes. This happened to me with Chrome, and by now I have over 50,000 chrome bookmarks. I have uninstalled chrome, installed Mozilla and it is the only online platform on my laptop now. For some odd reason, several sets of my Chrome bookmarks showed up on the Mozilla. I made sure that nothing is syncing. I still can't delete all the bookmarks. Only one by one. And if I delete one, it adds itself at the bottom of the list. I'm in deep despair. It's probably a malware that my Norton does not detect.

I have received the message about the bookmarks and history system will not function error. I have followed the troubleshooitng suggestions but no use as the bookmarks and history are all blank. I have found a firefox data folder saved in my documents that contains a back up of my bookmarks and history but these are greyed out so I can't back up from these. Can anyone assist?

Recently, I opened up the Firefox browser and it prompted me to create a new profile. I reopened the browser 2-3 more times and the same thing happened. I created a new profile. My bookmarks immediately disappeared. When I went to look for my old profiles, they all had disappeared, also. Firefox has been updated recently, and so has Windows 10. I have an older (2013) Toshiba laptop. Any suggestions for getting profiles and/or bookmarks back?

My computer was updated with the latest linux and the latest firefox browser. I want to create folders in my bookmarks. All the help answers say to go to Bookmarks and click on 'Menu'. That does not come up as an option. All I get is: Show all bookmarks; bookmark this page; bookmarks toolbar; other bookmarks. I can't find anything similar in tools, edit, or file. I also don't get 'Edit Bookmarks' like was in the last edition I had.

Hi,

searching for bookmarks (with sidebar) is no problem. There are several cases where I look, if something or similar had been bookmarked already. With this I want to avoid doubling/tripling/'moreling' bookmarks. But if I find something already bookmarked, I do not know in my about 1000 bookmarks where the bookmark is located. I tried to show properties of the found bookmark but it does not tell where it is placed. So I would have to look manually about 100 folders to find where the bookmark is located.

The most easy solution I think, would be indicating the place of the bookmark when showing settings of bookmark. On hovering over the found bookmark in a third line of popup could be told the location of this bookmark and would be visually more pleasant I think.

Else I have to put the bookmark doubled in a more visible location and delete the bookmark found by search. This workaround works but is not intuitive and bothersome (and costs much more time).

As this solution would be easy to implement, I hope, this can be implemented 'soon'. I think, this would help many others, too. (At least I heard from several others in my environment, that they miss such a thing.)

Not forgetting, thanks for the great browser, Niels

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
