An "Other Bookmarks" labeled icon mysteriously appeared on my Bookmarks Toolbar. It sits just beyond/ to the right of the double overflow arrows. It's still in its normal place when I open the bookmarks, but that link sits there, taking up space. (It was never there before this evening.)

How do I remove it from that position? Can I simply delete the link? Or will that delete the entire Other Bookmarks folder/ the bookmarks within it?

How did it get there? How can I prevent its return? Please note my User Name when replying. Tech-speak is a foreign language which I have never studied.

I installed the latest update today. Jan 12. I lost all my bookmarks. This also happened the last time there was an update a few months ago. Maybe 100 bookmarks collected over 15-20 years gone.

I didn't even want an update.

(I have Firefox 84.0.2, Windows 10) The "Recently Bookmarked" category disappeared in Bookmarks. When I googled about the problem, it said go to about:config and find browser.places.smartBookmarksversion--and change to default. This is not listed in about:config. When I "Bookmark This Page" it goes into "Other Bookmarks" at the bottom. (I have a large list of "Other Bookmarks.) Any suggestions?

I clicked on a video in YouTube that I didn't want to have in my history. After navigating to the History sidebar, I right clicked it and clicked on "Forget About This Site". This was a mistake, apparently I needed to click on "Delete Page" instead, now my long rich history with YouTube is gone, but that's beside the point.

Now even after accessing the site numerous times, the address bar refuses to autofill after I press a 'y', and it doesn't come up on the Top Sites in the homepage, like it was blacklisted somehow. The autofill works with other sites. I have no other website starting with 'y' which makes it search for 'y' in the search engine when I press enter. 'browser.urlbar.autoFill' is set to 'true'.

Hello

There is a website that won't go off my URL bar suggestion. I have tried everything I came across searching about this problem : - choosing the entry with the arrows and clicking on the DELETE button (holding SHIFT or not) - removing the website from my history - clicking on "forget this website" in the history - some other things I don't exactly remember

None of this has worked... The website isn't even bookmarked ! When I type "rs" on the search bar, I want rs-online.com and not rs-particuliers.com to appear. You can see the problem is this video : https://youtu.be/Vq5dUpkf534

This is driving me crazy... I use this website (rs-online) every day, and I never use the other one... I want it to get OFF my computer... Sorry if this isn't the right place !! Ask me anything you need to know !

Have a great day

So, I just noticed today that my bookmarks section is acting oddly. Normally it brings up the option for where to send a bookmark. But randomly, I've seen it suddenly switch to just defaulting to the last bookmark location. For example, I want to bookmark something in a bookmark folder I have specific for things related to writing, but when I go to bookmark the site, the first thing that comes up is the location I created for youtube videos. What exactly is going on here, and how do I fix that?

1. Have you tried to move bookmarks from a folder to another or tried to create new folders since the update 84.0.1?

I can't move bookmarks for example from "Other Bookmarks" to "Bookmarks Menu" and I can't create new folders since the update 84.0.1. Nothing happens. Occasionally something happens, but when I restart Firefox, every changes have gone! This is weird. New folders are gone and bookmarks are where they use to be!

2. The "Other Bookmarks" folder is really annoying. What other bookmarks? Why you people decided behalf of me what folders do I need? If I wanted a folder "Other bookmarks", I would created it myself. That's also why I tried to move bookmarks from "Other Bookmarks" to "Bookmarks Menu" but nothing happens.

3. Now some people have decided that they put the Other Bookmarks folder to the Bookmarks Toolbar! Now the Other Bookmarks folder is in two places at the same time! Are you crazy? And I can't even move bookmarks from the Other Bookmarks folder.

4. I did this:

"Try to set browser.toolbars.bookmarks.2h2020 = false + restart."

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1311062#question-reply

That will remove the Other Bookmarks folder from the Bookmarks Menu but I still can't move bookmarks or create new folders because of the update 84.0.1?

I found this question as top result at Google but found a better solution myself that I think would be useful for others. Unfortunately this question is archived and I can not post answers there.

Question: Where did my bookmarked keyword searches go?

Solution for the tech-savvy / developers:

  1. Close Firefox
  2. Go to your Firefox profile directory
  3. Create a backup copy of places.sqlite
  4. Open places.sqlite in an sqlite editor
  5. Go to table "moz_keywords" and delete the line with the keyword you want to remove
  6. Commit/Save and quit

Background information: In my instance the place_id of the keyword had a matching entry in moz_places but not in moz_bookmarks. Changing a title of another entry in moz_places however does not change the title shown in Firefox but edits done in moz_bookmarks are shown. I can only assume that there must have been a change of usage in these tables at some point in time and the moz_places entries are no longer shown in the bookmarks manager but are still accessible via keywords.

But here's my question...I use sync across to other machines (android phone + another win10 laptop) - will either a) these other machines serve as "repositories" I could more simply sync to and recover - if so how? b) me importing the recovered HTMl (from json) backup somehow spoil those machines own copies of the bookmarks in thee next sync? WORSE - I also seem to have lost all the passwords...I see my profile as "default" and I am logged in the same name as on the other machines.... any advice is welcomed and TIA Phil

Hi,

I'm using Firefox desktop version : 84.0.2 (64-bit). I noticed that there are duplicates for most of my bookmark tags due to upper case & lower case.

Example - "Wordpress" , "wordpress". (2 tags for the same word)

So I'm trying to delete these duplicate tag but unable to do so.

Note : I was able to create new tags & delete those. But those duplicate tags are not responding for deletion and If I rename a new one is being created like another new copy.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, I trust you all had a (well deserved) merry Christmas.

I have a question regarding bookmarks in Firefox. This is something that has been bugging me for some years (yes, it has taken me that long to get around to asking about this). Over the last decade I have amounted a large assortment of bookmarks, which I have carefully structured and also add suitable tags to (as I know what I am likely to search for in future). This works very well for me and it's surprising how my past self has been so accurate at predicting what I may find useful to my present/future self, when it comes to searching for something in my bookmarks.

Herein lies my problem though. I often need to put in a number of tags to make a given web resource findable in the future. For example, I was just reading up about the Google compute module, and have been trying to enter the following tags: Google Edge TPU (Neural compute) sbc network artificial intelligence machine vision intel stick Quantization

This number of keywords is too long, yet I don't want to really remove any of these words/acronyms. Why are the bookmarks so heavily restricted with regards to tags? I see that when I look at the bookmarks, there is also a **keywords** option too, but those words are not searchable, so I don't see much value in placing anything in there.

I am not 100% sure, but I could swear too, that bookmarks used to have a description section too, where I could make notes regarding a weblink (EG: "this website has particularly good recipes for pasta, but ignore their vegatarian options as they don't review very favorably"). I may be thinking of another web browser from a long time ago. Having a description field for each bookmark (which is not restricted to a ridiculously short length like the **Tags** field) would be an excellent idea.

so, to summarize: 1. How do I work around having such a short **Tag** field (and when is Mozilla going to fix this?) 2. Can we please have a Description field for each bookmark. Please!

These are just about my only criticisms of what is otherwise my absolute favorite of browsers. Thanks for the great work and effort by all, and have a prosperous and healthy 2021.
