When I 'show' my toolbar, its space appears but no bookmarks show. I have to use the side toolbar which, for me, can be quite difficult; I have a lot of bookmarks. I have been through the help area and through the community help as well. No one seems to share my problem; their problems all seem to be it not showing at all or a bookmarks sync problems Mine just doesn't show anything on the toolbar itself - whether it's on show or not.

I just updated firefox and was bookmarking a page but when I opened the bookmarks menu to check that it was there and delete the old version of the page the new bookmark was not present. On closer inspection I noticed it saved it to "other bookmarks" instead. How do I change the default save location back to the bookmark menu because as often as I update my bookmarks with newer pages having to manually select the bookmark menu is gonna get old really fast.

Before firefox quantum, when pressing Ctrl+D, the created bookmark was put in the bookmarks menu by default (unlike clicking the star bookmark button, which defaulted to unsorted bookmarks). After updating to quantum, the default location is "Other bookmarks" - the same as pressing the star button.

How do I restore the old behaviour?

I had my bookmarks toolbar enabled (View - Toolbars - Bookmarks Toolbar). Yesterday, the toolbar disappeared. On the View-Toolbars menu, Bookmarks Toolbar was still selected. I unselected it and the toolbar appeared. Although now, Bookmarks Toolbar on the menu was unselected. Next time I started Firefox, the toolbar was gone again. I selected it from the menu and it reappeared. But next time I started it, it was gone again and Bookmarks Toolbar on the menu was showing as selected.

How do I fix this?

For over a year now, I have created html files of my bookmarks in Firefox from my main PC and then copied them to my laptop version of Firefox. I thought that would just rewrite the old bookmarks, but I see now it just adds to the old bookmarks. I've tried deleting the old bookmarks one at a time but that takes forever and it will not delete large collections of bookmarks in the old bookmark menus.

    How do I delete most or all of my old bookmarks (now hundreds) on my laptop, so I can add the new bookmarks from my main PC?

Firefox 49 introduced a new section to the Bookmarks Menu -- both the one that drops from the toolbar button and the one on the classic menu bar. It says Recently Bookmarked and is followed by the five most recently added bookmarks. How to remove it?

(Yes, it's a little obnoxious to create a new question to answer it, but I think it's the best way to help spread this information to anyone searching for it.)

I'd like to first state that although the bookmarks are not showing up, the bookmarks bar is.

I don't know what has caused this but somehow, FF has stopped showing the bookmarks in the bookmarks bar. I also cannot drag and drop a link onto the bar either. When I try that, I get a circle with a slash through it.

I've tried a few things, including:

1. Installing Places Maintenance 2.0.3 add on and attempting a fix. 2. Backing up my bookmarks and deleting the places.sqlite file as stated here:

   http://kb.mozillazine.org/Bookmarks_history_and_toolbar_buttons_not_working_-_Firefox

Neither helped and has not allowed me to view old bookmarks or drag new bookmarks onto it.

NOTE that the bookmarks are still there. I can see them when I click on the bookmarks icon and show the Bookmarks Toolbar. Now that I think about it. They shouldn't be there should they? Shouldn't the bookmarks be wiped out? I didn't import them yet. The only thing that did change is that their icons disappeared when viewing them from the bookmarks menu.

This happened on my father's machine a few days ago according to him. I don't see any recent releases, so I'm not sure what it could be. Is it possible that he accidentally activated/deactivated something? He is almost blind and sometimes doesn't notice when he clicks on things.

Upgraded from v 24 to 25 and on program restart noticed my bookmarks menu is really long now due to extra added blank space between each bookmark. Is there any way to fix it as scrolling up and down all the time is a pain in the neck. The spacing is a waste of space now.

My current laptop is about to pack in and I want to save my Favourite website bookmarks before it does. I am getting a new laptopn on which I will install Firefox again. How do I go about saving the Bookmarks to an external hard drive and how to I reinstall them when I am ready, onto my new laptop? I can do basic computer things but not complicated ones. So, if someone could explain EXACTLY what I need to do would be very helpful. Cheers

After Firefox updated last night, my bookmarks are no longer in folders - and I can't locate all of them. What I have now is a list which is not helpful. My bookmarks were a filing system, so it's important that I can get them back as they were. This has happened on 2 computers that I use, so is VERY inconvenient.

The title should explain it sufficiently, but the behavior that I expected was for Firefox to automatically pull favicons from websites or at least allow that to be done manually. It appears that this does not happen. Has this been a feature that was removed, a bug, something on my computer, or something else? Basic Google searches didn't reveal much but a couple of addons that can do this process manually, but I am hoping to avoid this (and some of them no longer work).

Visiting websites doesn't cause the favicons to reload, and deleting and readding the bookmark doesn't work.

Yes, the addresses for the bookmarks are correct including the http(s):// prefix

Attached full info about my browser, but it's on Win 10 running Firefox 53.0.3 64 bit version with some extensions.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

There is right now literally no obvious way to bookmark a page. This is a serious flaw in the browser.

The Forum instructions say to restore it from "Customize." But it's not there, just the bookmark menu button, which does not allow you to bookmark a page. It then says restore defaults. That doesn't restore the star either. Does anyone know how to get it back once it's gone? It should not be so difficult that I can't figure it out.

I am currently on version 55.0.3 and have had the offer of an update to 56. I accepted the update, installed and restarted FF only to find that all the bookmark foders are grey [not yellow] and a piece of 'unwanted' software [something to do with screenshots] had an icon in the top right-hand corner. I note that doing a search for this problem on this forum, that in a post by WorriedFred on 9.28.17 @ 7.20pm, a post has been marked 'chosen solution'??? There is no solution - if there is where is it??? OR perhaps this is a new default colour style Mozilla have decided to use with this update - how inconsiderate not to mention this if it is so. And to add on a bit of software without permission is a disgrace.

If there has been an official response/explanation for this problem/bug could somebody please point me to it - I have run out of perming 56-bookmarks-grey-all-update in the search Mozilla bar. For the moment I have done a system restore back to 55 - nice yellow forders.

Hello,

  Today I was automatically upgraded to FireFox Quantum.  Mostly it went well but my bookmarks have been mostly destroyed and/or disorganized.  I've tried restoring from two different dates prior to the upgrade but the restored bookmarks are a mess.  I'm a software developer and have spent a lot of time safeguarding and organizing these bookmarks.  I'm hoping this is a bug in Quantum and that your team can get this straightened out.  :)

Im trying to sync my desktop with a new laptop. Have followed instructions and entered 12 digits where requested having signed up for an account in advance.

After adding the 12 digits neither of them shows any sign of syncing. the next page asks for account details plus a Recovery Key. I've not found a Recovery Key and have spent some time looking at Support pages. The Sync tab on both shows pairing and syncing click-ons only - no manage account etc as indicated in support info.

be very grateful for somebody to talk me through this in a simple way. Many thanks in advance
