The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.

Hi, In these last days, I deleted a bookmark folder or something by error. Then I found some daily backups, and I restored from the last one backup.

The next issue was that the following daily backups have less bookmarks, and doing some testing, it appears the Daily backups, now, are not including "Other Bookmarks".

It has less entries from now on.

I want to know if there is a bug, or something changed by itself. How can I fix that?

Thanks

How to rearrange bookmarks in the Firefox Sidebar ?

When I do a search in the Sidebar, the bookmarks always appear to be in same order as they are in the main menu with the newest at the bottom of the list.

However I just added 4 new ones & 3 are at the bottom but 1 is at the top in the Sidebar. Yet all are at the bottom in the main menu. I’d like to keep all 4 grouped together but cannot drag any of them into place.

I deleted & re-saved the bookmarks. When saving, the first one added appears at the top of the Sidebar search list & the other 3 at the bottom.

Somewhere along the way, when I edited a couple of the names the top one swapped places with one of the bottom 3 in the Sidebar. Yet they’re all in their original order at the bottom of the main menu.

Any idea why the Sidebar is changing the order?

I created a *.json file and cannot find a way to open it to reinstate the bookmarks that I had in Firefox. I do not have bookmarks in other search engines, it seems the only help it for that type of problems. I read other help articles, I do not have the things that were advise from Application menu. I did not make any changes to this laptop either, I cannot understand why my bookmark had disappeared???!!! What I had was a windows soft reset, which did wipe the bookmarks. Today I had opened a couple of websites, and when I look for the bookmarks I am only shown these 5-6 bookmarks!!!! I had loads as crafts from You tube and others! Such an inconvenience!

Hello - Firefox Bookmarks are wonderfully intuitive and hardly need the well written instructions. However, in Manage Bookmarks, I search and find the Bookmark I want but can't see or find which folder it's in. Thus I can't sort it or move it to another folder. A column in search results showing Folder would be fabulous!

In the bookmarks sidebar (Win 10 PC), when using "search bookmarks" and after typing an entry to locate, I thought that there used to be a "button" (x) in the far right of the search field that would clear any entry and return the view of bookmarks in the sidebar to that which was displayed prior to the search.

Has something changed or was I just imagining this.

If my rampant imagination is at work, please consider this a feature request

Thanks

Hello, I signed in to Firefox on a new computer and it appears to have synced to the new computer, overwriting and erasing all my bookmarks. I use Firefox at work because I need to move through several computers. Firefox allows me to bring my bookmarks with me to each station. Now it appears I may have erased all my bookmarks by syncing this new computer, not the other way around as it always has. Please help me recover my bookmarks.
