I followed the suggestions from post a year ago, but the answer I was directed to no longer works. This used to be easy until they changed the bookmark section on Firefox. Wondering why there does not seem to be a choice simply marked "New Folder" or if there is, where is it?

Firefox 15.0.1 "Remember my browsing and downloads history" In previous versions they were separate check boxes.

I tried "about:config" : "browser.download.panel.removeFinishedDownloads" changed to "true" but it didn't seem to do anything. Not sure if that is the correct variable too.

First time I visited a website, I followed a link, which had https instead of http as a protocol. The website is throwing error when I try to access it via https procotoc, so I have to delete the "s" letter manually every time. Even if I type the website name without protocol, Firefox adds https himself throwing me again on the error page.

I tried clearing cache, history, deleting mention of the website in the tips (shift+del after typing part of the url).

My list of "Favories" bookmarks from Internet Explorer disappeared; I can't find them- "Import from IE" brings up an obsolete list of Favorites...how do I find

I have tried every option under all of the "Help" articles in order to find my missing bookmarks ('Favorites') from IE, and nothing has worked. When I tried "Import from IE", it loaded a list of Favorites at least a year old. I cannot find the current bookmarks which are stored in the folder "From Internet Explorer". When I click on the bookmarks icon (star) in the upper right corner, the menu no longer displays the option to select "From Internet Explorer". The only thing I have not tried is the "Restore" option available in the library window under "Import and Backup": I don't know which of the files listed would be the correct one, and the instructions caution that whatever file(s) are chosen now will replace the earlier file. I don't want to accidentally erase all of my stored bookmarks (hundreds of them), and be left with only the bookmarks that I've saved just recently - I also don't want to end up with an outdated (old) set of Favorites.

Hello,

Firefox 15.0.1 cannot import bookmarks from Safari 6.0.1.

I have followed the steps below:

1) Export all Safari bookmarks to an HTML file (File --> Export Bookmarks) 2) Import bookmarks into Firefox (Bookmarks --> Show all bookmarks --> Import and Backup --> Import Bookmarks from HTML)

Firefox seems to load the HTML file, but the bookmarks never show up in Firefox.

Any thoughts about why this is happening?


Best,

Jaime.-

Firefox fails to delete cookies if set to do so on quitting and if the settings 'General->Show my windows and tabs from last time' have been set.

The problem is described e.g. as bug 794253, 443354 and 401187:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=794253 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=443354 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=401187 .

As a result user tracking through cookies can continue even if Firefox had been closed before. Moreover another user could resume an earlier session and access pages an earlier user had not logged off from.

A work around is also described in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=443354 :
edit direct link to comment -J99 bug 443354 c48

In about:config set browser.sessionstore.privacy_level & browser.sessionstore.privacy_level_deferred to 1 or 2 as described with the bug report.

However, as a general solution this problem needs to be fixed in Firefox since most people will neither be aware of the problem nor of the work around.

Users can vote for this bug in Bugzilla to promote its solution.

I am missing some bookmarks. I must have accidentally deleted them some time ago. I have an old profile saved from 6-7 months ago that would have the missing bookmarks. How can I open one of the backup bookmarks files from the old profile or convert it to html?

I know how to export to html but that appears to not give me the option of selecting a specific file to convert. Conversion only converts existing bookmarks to html which will not help me, if I understand correctly what I have read. I know how to restore the bookmarks but my understanding is that they are then added to existing bookmarks. I don't want to do that because probably 95% of my current bookmarks are in the older much larger version I have saved in the old profile plus much more that I wanted to get rid of.

I was thinking of exporting to internet explorer, since I never use it and it has no bookmarks. I don't know how to select a specific bookmark file for export or if it is even possible to do that. If I can do that, however, I can search the bookmarks there for what I need and then add them back to FF.

Can you help we with this. Thank you for your assistance.

Hi, I was looking for help from two weeks now. Still can't solve this! :( My javascript is enabled, reinstalled java.com too. I deleted all my temp, history, cookies, removed add-ons, disabled kaspersky, checked it all in safe mode, installed firefox beta and all that..... now I'm just mad. The problem is javascript, I suppose, here are examples of sites that are not working for me: wireimage.com (trying to search or click on the thumbnail, where link is javascript:void(); - nothing happens) or viddy.com ie. http://www.viddy.com/video/b604f3a9-9b7d-4e60-bc7c-7bfe4ba89cf2?source=Featured where I should see play icon and video should load, but all I can see is black image. I have many sites like this. It's buggin me very much, that I'm very close to get chrome and delete firefox forever. Please help me! What I have to do to make it work again?

This is the situation: I make a bookmark, and I want to put it into a new (sub)folder. So I go to the folder I want the new folder in, and click 'new folder'. Now instead of giving me the opportunity to name my new folder, it just makes a new folder with the very useful name 'new folder'. When I go to the bookmark dropdown menu, I can change the name in the properties, so it's not a very big problem, it's just very annoying. If anyone can tell me how to fix this, I'd be very glad. Firefox has been doing this since I've installed it on this computer.

This is how it all happened: 1. Bookmarks first disappeared on one of my desktop computers. 2. Bookmarks disappeared on another desktop computer. Additionally I was unable to bookmark any new page - after I press the star button it would be blank (not yellow). 3. I can see my bookmarks on my tablet with updated Firefox Beta. But I am worried they will disappear soon too. 4. When I checked the Sync Quota it shows that Bookmarks only use few kilobytes even thought I have hundreds if not thousands of bookmarks. 5. I have reinstalled the browser removing all personal data, but the only thing that changed is - I now can add bookmarks, although not through Right Click->Bookmark This Link.

I strongly believe this is a bug in the Sync system and am now considering switching to chrome
