When I started firefox today, there was a new folder added to my bookmarks toolbar - "Other Bookmarks". It was never there before and I want to remove it. In the bookmarks menu itself I have the "Bookmarks Toolbar" where I put the stuff I want to access often, and "Other Bookmarks" where I put other stuff I don't need as much. I don't see a reason why the "Other Bookmarks" should take up space on the bar.

Good afternoon. My Firefox has been updated to the new version but I noticed that the font size in my bookmarks dropdown menu has increased. I would prefer to make it smaller as it used to all fit in one column without the need to scroll. Could someone tell me how, or if this can be done with the new version? Thanks and hope to hear back soon.

I usually had my Bookmarks/Library visible in a window on the right side of my screen. After updating to v89, it is gone. I can access it but it is no longer pinned to the right side of my screen. Can I get it back and leave it on my browser screen? I am not a fan of this update.

Pre v89 Windows 10- for some reason, one of my bookmark folders, containing many subfolders and individual bookmarks, has disappeared from my bookmarks toolbar. interestingly, the lost Bookmark folder it does appear on my android phone. Is there some way of finding it on my desktop and restoring it from there, or possibly restoring it from my phone? I would think I would like to try to do this before installing version 89. Thanks in advance.

I just discovered that in this new improved Firefox, including those wonderfully double spaced bookmarks, I cannot delete the "separator" lines in between them.

I use separator lines to divide bookmarks into groups. I use a LOT (LOT) of bookmarks.

Now, there is no "delete" on a bookmark, which is tolerable because there is instead only "Remove Bookmark," but there is NO way to get rid of the separator lines !!! I used to be able to hover over them and right click and "DELETE" would appear as a choice; just click and it deletes the bookmark.

This function is GONE !!!

Can anybody tell me how to delete separator lines from my list of bookmarks ?? I would be truly grateful.

Following problem since last update (89.0, 64bix, Win 10): When I call my list of bookmarks (Alt+L for Lesezeichen in my German Firefox), the lines in my list are much farther apart than before (see attached screen shot). Thus, I now have to scroll down to reach the lower items in the list. What can I do to get back the former, narrow list of bookmarks? Thanks a lot Hansueli Hof

I just got a MISERABLE updated Firefox that increased the spacing in my bookmarks menu so it is essentially UNUSABLE with double or triple spacing requiring scrolling till one's arm falls off! Why is it us poor peons out here who just want to use our computers and the internet, and the Firefox they've used FOR YEARS, have to be subject to arbitrary UNNECESSARY changes made by some "developer", possible trying to justify his/her existence and/or is stir crazy in lockdown? win10 bookmarks on the right. FIX IT! And stop screwing up WHAT WAS WORKABLE! I'm not a "nerd" able to just manipulate stuff...I want MY FIREFOX BACK!

I REALLY dislike the new bookmark pull-down feature, which has larger fonts and far too much space between bookmarks. Now I have to scroll (for which I can't use the mouse) to get to the bottom of a long bookmark list. I prefer older versions.

How may I change the appearance of this feature?

The change in the appearance of the tabs is also strange!

Is there any way to change the time format in most recent visit in Bookmarks from am/pm to 24 hour?

Preferably without having to upload new version. I used Canadian one but after the newest update I tried to go back to older version, there was a bit of mess and long story short I loaded US version instead of Ca and trying to fix by with Ca version forced me to create new profile and it's still in am/pm.

I just want to say that this is ridiculous. Importing bookmarks from HTML (which was exported from the same Firefox browser but on a different system) does not work at all. I also tested this with HTML exported bookmarks from other browsers as well. I select the file, click import and nothing happens, nothing at all. I have even updated to the latest version of Firefox and guess what? It still does not work. How? Please explain how your software can be this bad. And please don't ask me if I clicked the right button, giving me instructions on how to do the thing that I already did 100 times.

My recollection is that when I used to want to reassign a bookmark to a different folder, I just brought up the bookmarked page and used the ctrl+D shortcut to add it to the new folder--and the old bookmark was gone. Now it seems that when I do that, the old bookmark remains, so that I now have the same page bookmarked in two places. Is this a change I was not aware of? Is there a different procedure to move (rather than duplicate) the bookmark?
