After upgrading to Windows 10 or maybe Firefox 78.0.1 every time I navigate to a bookmarked page from the Bookmarks/Library window, that Library window continues to run in the background. I'd like to find a way to have this close automatically like it used to. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

'Most used' Bookmarks gone from address bar since update 78.0.1 (64-bit)

Hi, Since the latest update, I'm no longer able to see the most used bookmarked sites from my address bar. When I now click on the open space of the bar I get a dropdown of saved sites but not the most used ones like I used too. This has happened in a previous update too and because I cannot find a fix solution, I'm forced to make a post.

I've tried going into tools>options>home>privacy & security but ticking and unticking of boxes has been unsuccessful. Any help would be gratefully received.

With very vague help from your Support answers, I figured this out on my own and had to comment because all too many times your experts forget they are not always dealing with techs on answering these questions. For me this is what worked when I tried to alphabetize my bookmarks: Open LIbrary, show all Bookmarks (bottom of the list of bookmarks), click on Views and select Sort.

How can I change the font for FF bookmarks?

I need to use special characters in my bookmark entries (in the sidebar), for url entries and also, if possible, for the folders containing them. When I rightclick to get "Properties", there is no field "Font" or similar, so how/where would I change the font, and what default font is used there, to begin with?

My second question would then be how use another font for some entries, instead of the default one, or more precisely, how to combine two fonts within the same entry (bookmark or bookmark folder, if possible, too), in order to get, within the regular text of the entry, some special characters which are not included within the default font.

If such combination of two fonts for the same entry is not possible, I should at least know what the default font is, and where FF stores it, in order to put special characters from within another, special font into that default font.

Thank you!

Some of the bookmarks I have on the toolbar will open the web page automatically and some will not. For example, if I click one site it goes right to my summary page without logging in. If I click on another it goes to the log in page. The user name & password auto-fills but how can I get these sites to open automatically when from the short cut in the toolbar.

Could it be a Windows 10 issue? I didn't seem to have this problem with the old Edge browser but now I get the same thing in the new Edge, Chrome, and Firefox.

The New Bookmark dialog window should save the last used bookmark folder and use it for the next bookmark, both for one click and for double click on the bookmark star.

This should be standard functionality of any dialog window.

No add-on mimics this simple feature.

Ever since I deleted my history, Bookmarks will not allow me to bookmark a page. When I click "Bookmark this page," nothing happens. The Star in the address bar is not highlighted and when I click it, it doesn't respond. When I checked my Preferences, everything is setup correctly. I don't know how long this has been happening, but I noticed it the other day. I have refreshed Firefox, and it didn't help. I have the newest version of Firefox. I only mention the deleting history in the beginning of the post for context. Thanks.

Hello,

Thanks for all your hardware on FireFox!

I'd like to have two Bookmark interfaces bound to a specific set of Bookmarks. One for home. One for work.

When I log in at home I'd like the Bookmarks Toolbar bound to a corresponding set and ditto for for work. Each showing appropriate Bookmarks for each environment.

How can I achieve this without creating two accounts?

Thank you,

Michael
