All of a sudden pressing Ctrl-Shift-B no longer opens my Bookmarks window (Library), but instead closes my bookmarks toolbar!

Is there a way to revert this shortcut back to what it's been for the longest time?

I know the "new" combination is Ctrl-Shift-O but I've used the old one so often (maybe 50 times a day), that this change is nerve-racking.

Thanks.

If i set Bookmarks Toolbar option to Always Show, everything works fine, the toolbar is displayed all the time. Now, if i set Bookmarks Toolbar option to Only Show on New Tab the toolbar is not displayed anywhere. You can't see it in the new tab or the current tab.

I tested it with FF 85.0.2 (64-bit) and with FF Developer Editition 86.0b9 (64-bit)

I am attaching a VideoGIF to show the problem

I keep my Bookmarks Sidebar open. It works properly for a few minutes and then it doesn't. The behavior it shows is as follows.

1. It quits scrolling. I have to click the web page and go back to the sidebar to scroll again. 2. It scrambles the bookmarks when I click one. 3. When I click one bookmark it opens some other one.

Basically it acts crazy. The one fix I have found is when it is acting up and I close and reopen the sidebar it starts working properly again for a while. Then the problems repeats until I close and reopen the sidebar.

Hi I have a folder which I imported from IE years ago which has all my bookmarked sites which I save my most used bookmarks to on a regular basis. As Firefox was running very slow, I refreshed it making sure to uncheck bookmarks in the refresh exercise. When I've just opened Firefox this 'imported from IE' is no where to be found. I'm completely distraught that this is lost as I can't replace the whole number of bookmarks that I've saved. Please help!

Thank you

My homepage is set to AOL. The "Open New Tab" used to display 6 or 7 webpage links I could click on instead of diving into my bookmarks. I clicked on a small button in the upper corner and after making a few changes. Now the new tab is totally blank. Would like to restore the original setting without uninstalling and re-installing Firefox.

I would like to save my bookmarks to a folder and transfer it to a flash drive so that when my computer crashes {which it eventually will because all I could afford was a cheap piece of crap and I had to reset the thing once already}, I can just retrieve the folder from the flash drive and put them in Firefox when I download a new copy on the computer after reset.

Hello. I have a (presumably) broken install of Firefox that never loads and I plan to totally uninstall Firefox (I have the beta version and I plan to get the normal version, unless you guys have a better solution to try), but first I just need to salvage my carefully curated bookmarks from this install before I nuke it (uninstall, do a clean-up, and reinstall a totally different version). Since normally once has to open the browser and enter settings (or bookmarks perhaps, I forget the exact process off the top of my head and clearly can't go look) to export bookmarks, I'm at a loss of how to accomplish this task. I've included a screenshot of what Firefox does when I open it. No amount of waiting does any good, this is all it does, and this is all it has done for over a year, despite numerous updates. Clearly the install is corrupted and I need to start fresh, but I need those bookmarks if at all possible. Is it possible? I've just switched to Chrome for the past year hoping it would eventually work itself out with an update, but that was clearly wishful thinking. I actually hate Chrome and would really like to get back to using Firefox, but I've let this linger for a year because I really do not want to lose those bookmarks and doing nothing and having a case of Schrodinger's bookmarks is somewhat better than having bookmarks that are gone forever.

As the subject line says, I want to determine the date that I added a specific bookmark. This was incredibly easy on my old Windows 7 machine with an older version of Firefox. You just clicked on "Bookmarks" at the top of the screen, then "Show All Bookmarks", "Views", "Show Columns" (ensuring that "Added" was checked) — et voilà, there it was!

Now, however, no matter what I try, I can't seem to figure out how to do this. And searching for an answer online has proven useless, as well. The only instructions I've seen refer to how I used to do it with my earlier version of Firefox.

Has the date that a bookmark was added also been deprecated/deleted from Firefox (along with the greatly missed cookie handling of yore)? Or am I just missing something obvious?

If anyone could tell me how to find the date I saved a bookmark, I'd be in your debt.

Thanks in advance.

The normal way to delete a bookmark is to click the bookmark (which loads the page), then click the three dots on the right of the url field after the page loads, then click the "edit this bookmark" icon, then select "remove bookmark". But a 404 redirect does not land on the bookmarked page and there is no "edit this bookmark" icon.

How do I delete a bookmark to a page that no longer loads? I want to keep other bookmarks intact.
