Hello,

I'm using Firefox Nightly and it just updated to 84.0a1 (2020-10-30) (64-bit). With this update, the "Other Bookmarks" folder appears on the Bookmarks Toolbar. It's situated on the far right, after the 2 right arrows that show the rest on the bookmarks from the toolbar. I've looked into the settings to see if this new addition can be hidden or removed, but I couldn't find anything. Can somebody tell me how I can hide it ?

Thank you, Flavius

edit: lmao i figured it out, actually i was just being stupid! don't know how to delete this question though, so, the stupidity continues!

i just switched to firefox and wanted to import my bookmarks from chrome. when i tried to import it directly from chrome, it worked just fine, but it pulled off an older bookmarks data from chrome before i had cleaned it out deleting, like, probably over a hundred of them and before saving some other new ones, so i decided to delete those and start from scratch and instead import my current set up via html. unfortunately, under my bookmarks library it looks like they imported alright but they don't show up on my actual bookmarks toolbar at all? i'm 100% i made an extremely simple mistake i'm gonna feel like a real fool for not realizing, but as of right now i don't understand where i went wrong :') screencap included to show how my library shows up + how my toolbar is, additionally don't judge my bookmarks i know i'm a nerd, i'm ashamed, it's christmas cut me some slack :')

I want to restore part of a large bookmark library, say 100 out of 800. I have both HDMI and JSON backups but they seem to want to only restore the entire library. I seem to be constantly "loosing" segments of my bookmarks. Some time later, they seem to show back up.???

How do I get rid of the extremely annoying and useless "Other Bookmarks" folder which I NEVER use? This forum is misleading because it says only 3 people have this problem. I'm sure there are many thousands but it is almost impossible to comment or reply. It was a major puzzle for me to get this far. Firefox should to make a simple list of bookmarks available, when you have the Bookmarks symbol on the toolbar. It should be the default instead of hiding them in "other folders". If someone wants to make it more complex they easily can add folders. The default now is too complex and difficult to change. Every time I need to add the Firefox browser to a new operating system I need to do extensive research and fiddling just to simplify because I cannot remember the gymnastics I had to go through the last time.This time it made me so exasperated I nearly gave up went to Edge.

With the 'Show all Bookmarks' page open on my MAC desktop monitor screen i accidentally deleted all of my bookmark folders (listed alphabetically) following those beginning with the letter 'P'. I am in REAL trouble unless i can restore those deleted folders to the active list.

i tried following the suggestion that i open up my 'profile' in 'Library' and i found the deletedbookmarks file. But that file seems just to list deleted bookmarks by recent dates.. Whereas I need to restore the list of deleted bookmark FOLDERS to my active bookmark list and status.

I hope someone can help me. I'd be willing to provide a telephone number, though I guess that's generally inadvisable. Otherwise my e-mail address -- which you may already have -- is xxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxx.xxx

Thank you for any help.

My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I was logging in, and was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them?

Hello, It seems that my Firefox Browser upgraded itself and has a different look now, precisely speaking, my browser looks like beta version now. Earlier in the past, I downloaded Beta but I was disappointed because I COULD NOT FIND OR SEE MY BOOKMARKS.. Sadly and annoyingly, same thing happened now! I have lost all my bookmarks and bookmark folders. I would be grateful if you could please help me get my bookmarks back. Regards, HAKAN [email]

Can anyone out there help me, I’ve exported my FireFox Bookmarks onto an external hard drive and then copied them back onto the desktop and from there tried to import them back into FireFox.

All the subfolders have imported back into FireFox no problem, but for some reason it has not done so with any bookmarks which appear under the Other Bookmarks listing, is there something I'm doing wrong? The version of FireFox I’m using is FireFox Quantum 6.9.0.3 (64 bit) with Windows 10.

On this Win-10 laptop, 64-bit, FF version 71: I'm not enabled to drag bookmarks via the "library" icon at right of pocket/star icons. Rather just via Bookmarks on Menu Bar.

But FF seems to have messed the Menu-Bar bookmarks by duplicating its drop-down endlessly. (I had frustratedly posted a pic of that in an alternate post)

I don't know why on earth everything is so defective. The library-icon venue disallows dragging, and also has duplicated lotsa stuff during import, plus omitted stuff. The menu-bar venue allows dragging, but has self-replicated over & over.

I'd have had my Favicons conveniently on my toolbar ......if only i could have clean-reinstalled by now. I'd be able to conveniently drag/drop from a non-replicated Bookmarks on menu-bar ......if only i could have clean-reinstalled by now. This has guzzled so much time already, that i'm getting sick from it & ever-deeper mired. (I didn't get a chance to check yet if there was a reply to my last followup on aforesaid issues. I might not get a chance to check on this either due to guzzled-time. It may turn out to be just another rhetorical posting of bugs which never get fixed.
