Hi, I was trying to bind some common Firefox command to my programmable mouse and I am having some trouble: Basically, I want to remap the opening of the "Favorites" and "History" DROP-DOWN menus to my mouse extra buttons.

However, all the shortcuts I found online only allow me to open the "sidebar" view or the bookmark "management" menus (<Ctrl>+B and <Ctrl>+<Shift>+B)

I just want a button (or button combination) that opens my comfy drop down menus, not those overcomplicated menus (that even require and additional click to close down once you pick up the website to want to visit).

Any ideas?

Why won't the bookmark in 'Other BookMarks' go away when I 'move' it (drag and drop) to where I want it in my saved bookmark directories? This is a copy not a move and I want a move function.

Why can't I delete a BookMark from 'Other BookMarks' without the same bookmark getting deleted where I sorted it (there is a link that shouldn't be there).

both these issues make it impossible to manage 'Other Bookmarks' and keep it tidy and minimal

My bookmarks and history are gone. There is a red banner across the top, which reads, "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." No matter what I do, I can't seem to get either fixed.

"Show all bookmarks" seems to have vanished. How can I get it back, so I can back up my bookmarks? Or is there another way to do that? (Should have been clear about this: no problem finding the library symbol, opening the bookmarks toolbar or opening the bookmarks sidebar. However, the "show all bookmarks" entry is missing from the sidebar. The main headers on the sidebar are "bookmarks toolbar", "bookmarks menu", and "other bookmarks". "Show all bookmarks" is not a header and I cannot find it in any of the others. If I search for it in "search bookmarks", nothing emerges.)

How do I contact Mozilla Firefox to ask if I'm able to access to my Firefox profile on their cloud server?

Windows 10 would not update so I contacted Microsoft Support and a technician spent two days trying to various methods to get the updates installed on my computer. After several failed attempts it was determined a Windows "reset" was needed. The reset stated it would uninstall apps but save user data. However, it appears the reset uninstalled and wiped my profile off the computer.

I've already asked a previous question using the Mozilla Firefox support section and verified the profile is in fact gone. No backups are available to rollback using Firefox and the backup profiles in the "Windows.old" and "Windows.old(1)" both contain saved profiles from after the reset.

It sounds like my last option is contacting Mozilla directly to verify my account information and see if they can access my profile on their cloud server?

So how does someone do that? Thanks

Hello. After a reinstallation of W10, I imported in Firefox the file "bookmarks.html" that I saved before this installation. Usually it works very well, but this time, there are no more bookmarks in my menu after the import than before ! It looks as there was nothing in my file Bookmarks.html, however I am sure that this file is complete because I verified it in Excel (.csv). What happens ?... Thank you by advance to the community !

Firefox is my default browser. It’s bookmark manager is incredible! However, I have many Firefox (and other browser) exported files I need to consolidate. The Firefox bookmark manager is so good I can drag and drop bookmarks from these other files into Firefox.

I want to consolidate these bookmarks using the Firefox bookmark engine, but not by interfering with the bookmarks currently in Firefox. Also, since this will take a while, I don’t want to export my current Firefox bookmarks; clean out my current bookmarks; and spend the next two weeks using other browsers while I employ Firefox to clean up my bookmark situation.

Three Questions 1) Can I bring up another/unique Firefox window (like an earlier version; a separate window; a second install that I can open/close separate from the install I’m using now) that I can scrub clean of all bookmarks use it to rebuild all my bookmarks by dragging/dropping bookmarks from my many saved .html bookmark files--WITHOUT MESSING WITH MY CURRENT BOOKMARKS? 2) Alternatively, is it possible to just install the Firefox bookmark engine, separate from the Firefox browser? 3) Also, is there a simple way to instruct Firefox’s bookmark manager to delete duplicate bookmarks?

Thanks

How can I restore or get back a folder in my bookmarks that had ALOT of favorite sites in it? I was in my bookmarks and accidentally deleted a ENTIRE folder of bookmarks (probably 100 saved websites). I dont remember when the last time I did a BACKUP of my favorites folder and I think that I added websites to the folder just within the past week. How can I get them back? There is no "Recycle bin-type thing to restore from. HELP!

PLEASE, someone tell me my old bookmarks are living somewhere on laptop.

I deserve the answer to be NO bc I did not take any steps suggested by Moz, did not try refresh, did not even set up a profile b4 trying to install previous version (b4 82.0). Years worth of bookmarks are gone.

Used help topics to try the Import/Export-Restore Bookmark option. However the only json Mozilla extension I could find was related to my last attempt.

Running Wins 10-Mozilla/Firefox updated to 82.0 this morning. After the update my screen began to flicker and pull up sections of page in dark black. After verify the issue was with Moz I tried to revert back to older version. I was frustrated bc of the screen issues and as stated-did NOT do anything strongly suggested b4 going to previous version.

Although I chose previous version (64 bit) I actually ended up with a newly installed 82.0 However all bookmarks still gone & just icing on cake the flicker is still there.

Any help would mean to world. Thnx

Hi there, I reset my computer to the factory settings and I thought that my google account will hold all my saved bookmarks, that I need only to sign in and find them again in the bookmark manager. I can't find them anymore and there is no backup file as the comp was restored. Is it possible to get them back somehow? Some of them were quite important. Thank you very much.
