Hi All my icons changed to a globe image yesterday. I don't know why. However, I discovered that if I opened a bookmark, the correct icon reappeared. With 30 bookmarks to work on, this seemed like a lot of time, BUT your can "Open All Bookmarks in Tabs" and if you wait long enough, all your icons will be restored to those which the websites supply.

I am trying to put a shortcut to a web site on the Desktop. Using the the padlock on Firefox 109.0(64 bit) puts it in a sticky note on Desktop instead of a shortcut on the Desktop.

I am running running on Fedora 37 KDE where this does not work.

Using Fedora 37 Workstation (GNOME), the shortcut is created and works.

How do I get the shortcut to work on Fedora 37 KDE?

Hi, I gues I did not have a firefox profile as I had a user profile in the company. my laptoü crashed suddenly and all bookmarks and passwords are lost. True? I cannot restore them via the company user account without having a firefox profile - right? Or is there any other backup next to the profile which can be accessed from another computer? Thanks soooo much! Wibke

I loaded firefox 108.0.1 (64-bit) on my new computer with windows 11 Home. I imported my old bookmarks from my old computer and they seem to to work OK. But when I add new a bookmark to one of my old folders that I imported the bookmark does not show up when I use the icon “Show your Bookmarks”. If I go to “Manage Bookmarks” and go to the file the bookmark it is there.

Bookmarks Not Importing - Restore Back-Up Missing

Hello,

I am working in Mac OS 13.2 and just reinstalled Firefox after my OS has to be wiped and restored due to a OS file being corrupted.

When I sign back into Firefox my bookmarks did not re-sync. I followed the “profile / manage bookmarks / restore” instruction, where reportedly Firefox keeps the last 15 back-ups, but I am only getting seeing back-up from the day I reinstalled the browser, so it’s empty.

How do I access my bookmark back ups from a few days ago?

Worst case, I have a time capsule back up. What is the file path to find a file to import Firefox bookmarks?

Thank you!

Hello to the support team of Mozilla, I had a computer that cannot be reopened due to a virus and Malware. However, I have a bookmarks setting with Firefox that has not been imported. I did not have an account (or at least that I can remember) with Firefox. I just set up one today. I had written that I had an account under the username jackhsiao, but I was not able to log in.

I would like to know if I can import my bookmarks that were on the browser of my computer that I can no longer access.

Thank you,

Jack Hsiao

I'm seeing multiple complaints, concerns, questions about bookmarks and favorites. I too do not see the Favorites/Bookmarks that use to be at the top of the window for Foxfire. I have looked all over for a setting to put this back on the main page and have found none. Bookmarks/Favorites should be part of the main window and easily accessible. It was a very poor choice to take it away. The "Other Bookmarks" does not come close to what I had in the bookmarks previously and how I had it organized. I will use another browser because this is so frustrating. I will check back from time to time to see when Mozilla/Foxfire is back to the way it was previously.
