I had to reinstall Ubuntu 20.04 because I removed vital Python 2 and 3 and it broke. Before doing this I was logged into my Firefox profile and should have had my bookmarks and extensions synced. I do not see any reason why this would not be the case. However, after my reinstall of Ubuntu and logging into Firefox profile all of my bookmarks and extensions are gone. I tried checking around Firefox and it only shows bookmarks and extensions from after my reinstall. I have not performed a backup since I reinstalled Ubuntu, but those bookmarks are there. So I don't understand why I can't find my old bookmarks and extensions from before my Ubuntu issue, because I was logged into my Firefox account. My Firefox account information should have been saved to my account not my computer anyway. Please help me I had a lot of important bookmarks on there, but can't remember all of them.

I have used the bookmarks toolbar (windows pc) for years. Recently, when I open the browser my bookmarks revert to an alphabetical order. For example, I have the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) as my first bookmark but now it is buried at very end. How do I save the customized order of the bookmarks?

The menu (Bokmarks )has become too large a distance between the lines. Now the menus are getting way too long. Hard to read links and hard to find! Why this completely idiotic design change?

The change in the appearance of the tabs is also strange!

Is it possible to change back to the usual menu line spacing ???

I specifically said "LATER" to a button that said I could switch to the new browser format -- but the OLD FORMAT is changed on my browser !!!!

One of the changes is that the lines in any of the drop downs from any of my tool bar choices are now ALL DOUBLE SPACED - they used to be single spaced. This is HORRIBLE, it is so unpleasant to work with!

Is there ANY , please ANY, way to change these back to the old single space layout ? I have a lot of lines in my drop downs and now I have to scroll and scroll and scroll !!!!

Thank you for any assistance !!!

"Bookmarks & Other Bookmarks " Part Two due to topic being "Archived"

Greetings!

First jscher2000, & Cor-el, I Absolutely Thank both of You for the Time/Effort that you have put in to helping me, &,..... If I have appeared to be "Ride/Crude &/or Socially Un-acceptable" in my statements, I Absolutely Apologize. And, even though My "Bookmarks Situation" is still not "Normal" & it is time consuming to use,..... It is far better than what it was initially, & I Thank both of You, for having gotten it to that point.


Having gotten caught up a little with my work, & still not having the issue of my "Bookmarks" not taken care of,I went back to the long thread of "Bookmarks & Other Bookmarks " only to find this problem "Archived", without it having been Solved.

This issue has been ongoing since March 4, 2021, where my "Bookmarks" were missing, to where my "Other Bookmarks" are getting placed within My Main Bookmarks.

jscher2000, on June 7,2021 , You stated: 

"I have no explanation for inability to drag and drop as long as your database is healthy."


Sir,... What Data/ Tests, would show whether my Database is Healthy or not? After all that has been done to get my Bookmarks to the point where they are now, did any of the previous procedures indicate anything about the "Health of My Database"?



cor-el, on June 13,21, you stated:

"If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

This can be caused by a problem with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite databases in the Firefox profile folder.

   use "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page 

If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox or reboot and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

   keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created 

You lose the history when a new places.sqlite is created.

See also:

   https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional 

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

   Help -> More Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Folder/Directory:
   Windows: Open Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
   https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data " 

My last post was on June 14,2021 where I posted data, that appeared to suggest that my "places.sqlite database sane" (meaning "Normal"?) And that my "The database is coherent"., ... (Which in My thinking means that it should be understandable, possibly "Healthy"?)

But Gentlemen,..... I'm not "well versed" in the usage of a Computer/ Browser etc., & If "My Livelihood"  was dependent upon repairing/diagnosing Soft Ware Applications, .... I'd Starve to Death.  

But, if an application were related to my work,.... I'd have somewhat firmer ground to stand upon, which is why I posted June 14, 21:

"If this were a ECU for a Walk-n Refrigeration unit, I'd know what these "Codes" above meant, but here, I don't have a clue whether the data is pointing out a problem, or stating that what is causing the "Bookmarks" problem, is not to be found in the above Data."

With that said,.... Cor-el, If I,...... " rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder."

Will the rebuilt & restored bookmarks from that "recent JSON backup" also be corrupt, since they are a copy of what is being used?

"You lose the history when a new places.sqlite is created."

But not "Bookmarks"?

I'm curious,...... Should I do a "Re-set/Refresh" Again?

And, since "The health" of my browser may be an issue, should I un-install, & re-install Firefox?

Also,.... Firefox, & many other applications have been slow to "Load" &/or "Operate" at times, & despite having Software such as "Privacy Badger", "NoScript", "Ghostery", & "Malwarebytes" all operating, as well as "Windows Security", & "Ccleaner"... I'm thinking that somehow, that something, perhaps "Bit Coin Mining", has latched on to my PC.

What do Ya'll recommend?

version 94.0.2 (64-bit) message: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I can not see any of my bookmarks and I can not bookmark any page. I have: Shut down Firefox and restarted: no help uninstalled, deleted folders, and reinstalled: no help Import bookmarks from another browser: no help. That doesn't work either

What "security software" is the message talking about?

Hope you can help, because I don't want to go to another browser.

Some time back, I had made a bookmark for a list of books. I cannot find it now on my list of bookmarks. (I have MANY bookmarks.) I'd like to search using the search term "book*.*" How would I do this? If this not a feasible way to find my lost bookmark, is there another way that might work?

Thank you for reading and for any suggestions.

For well over a year, I have had this problem: Many times when I selected a bookmark, nothing happens. It does not go to the bookmarked site. I have tried the following things: 1. Start FF in safe mode. 2. changed OS from Windows 7 to Windows 10. 3. Made sure my OS and browser were up to date. 4. Tried different Antivirus programs.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you so much!

Hello, I have recently purchased a new laptop computer as my old one crashed. It is running Windows 10 which is new and unfamiliar to me. I am also using Firefox V85 as my default browser. In building my new bookmarks folder list I found the folder icons are coloured a nasty shade of grey. However, running Firefox on older operating systems (eg XP or Windows 8.1) the folders are a pleasing yellow colour. I have exhausted myself trawling the web, Youtube, and the Firefox help topics in trying to find a way to change the folder icon colour, but with no sucess. Please accept my apologies as I suspect that this question will have been asked before, but I cannot find any references to it. If anyone knows how to do this, please be aware that, whilst I am literate, I don't necessarily understand arcane computer terminology so I would welcome a simple key stroke by key stroke walk through. If there is a fix, it needs to work in both the Toolbar and the Sidebar. Many Thanks Chris

3-26-21: I just upgraded to the latest version of Firefox and NONE of my bookmarks are available. I've tried all the tips I've found and nothing works. I tried to Restore Bookmarks and get the error: Unable to process the backup file. This is a terrible version of Firefox. I need my Bookmarks. Where did they go?? How do I get them back? I am not a computer expert. I am a user of your product. I should not have to jump through hoops just to get my browser set up the way I had it before. Right now it is a big mess. I've used Firefox for years when other browsers are available. I will dump Firefox if I have to but I would prefer to solve this problem.

When I start Firefox for the first time, and click Bookmarks, it takes a little while to respond and populate the bookmarks list.

I've created a video to show the problem. You'll see that when I clicked Bookmarks, it becomes unresponsive for a sec or so before slowly populating the list.

I'm not sure when it started, but it was recently. What can I try to troubleshoot it? It behaves the same way in Firefox Safe Mode.

Two days ago (9/10/2021) I updated to version 92.0 on my laptop. When I attempt to scroll/drag through the bookmarks menu, the cursor, at normal speed, stays far ahead of the active bookmark. This "lag" is also noticeable when dragging the cursor through an active page/window. This was not the case before the update.
