I have followed all the instructions re how to delete bookmarks. Nothing works. Each time I try to mark all and delete - they multiply - by doubles or triples -- and then the whole Mozilla crashes. This happened to me with Chrome, and by now I have over 50,000 chrome bookmarks. I have uninstalled chrome, installed Mozilla and it is the only online platform on my laptop now. For some odd reason, several sets of my Chrome bookmarks showed up on the Mozilla. I made sure that nothing is syncing. I still can't delete all the bookmarks. Only one by one. And if I delete one, it adds itself at the bottom of the list. I'm in deep despair. It's probably a malware that my Norton does not detect.

I have received the message about the bookmarks and history system will not function error. I have followed the troubleshooitng suggestions but no use as the bookmarks and history are all blank. I have found a firefox data folder saved in my documents that contains a back up of my bookmarks and history but these are greyed out so I can't back up from these. Can anyone assist?

When I open firefox, I click on "bookmarks". This opens "desktop bookmarks". When I click on that, it opens 3 others: Bookmark menu Bookmark toolbar Other bookmarks If I click on "bookmark toolbar", it opens "bookmarks". After all of this, I click on bookmarks and it FINALLY opens my bookmark list. Why do I have to go through so many links just to open my list? What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it to only show bookmarks/my list?

Thanks.

Hi, the backup files listed on the Restore menu are complete snapshots of your bookmarks for that date, and not limited to the new ones added on those dates. Do you want to physically delete the full backups from disk?

If you want to view/delete your current bookmarks added during a certain period, here are the steps for that:

Sorting Bookmarks by Date Added

First, make sure you have the Added column in your Library window (called up by Manage Bookmarks). To add a new column to the display, right-click any existing column heading and check the column on the little drop-down list.

Next, if you aren't sure which folder the bookmarks are in you can do a general search in the upper right corner (entering http will match most bookmark URLs).

Then click the Added column heading to sort by that column. This should group together the bookmarks added on a particular date so you can review and delete the ones you don't want.

Does that work on your Firefox?

No because I do not have an "Added" column on the Library window called up by "Manage Bookmarks." YES I would like to "Physically delete (permanently get rid of) "the full backups from the disc." I have yet to see a "delete" tab anywhere in this version of Firefox (92.0). I would gladly revert to an earlier version if it eliminated the current "restore bookmarks" list. How do I do it?

Tried to reply to your email. It has not return. Here is a copy of report you requested. It is different from what you sent me.

> Task: invalidateCaches - Unable to invalidate caches > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I still have no bookmarks. I have restarted the computer a number of times. I also renamed the places.sqlite adding a 1 after places as it said in other directions. I have also refreshed.

Yesterday, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled after receipt of your response. It said all cookies, history, bookmarks etc transferred successfully. However, I keep getting the message “ and Bookmarks and history systems will not be functional because one of Firefox’s file is in use by another application. Some security software can cause the problem. I use McAfee, I’ve always used it. I have not changed it.

I did not do anything with favicon file as I don’t know what to do, I understand you can delete that. If there is a list of more than one, then what do I do.

As I indicated, I an NOT a technical person.

Please advise.

Thanks.

For anyone who wishes to reduce horizontal spacing between bookmark icons in the horizontal Bookmarks Toolbar across the top of Firefox window (under the address bar), here is the code to add to userChrome.css:

/* Bookmarks Toolbar icon horizontal spacing */

toolbarbutton.bookmark-item:not(.subviewbutton) {

   padding: var(--bookmark-block-padding) 3px !important;

}

The default value is 4px. I changed it to 3px. You can change this number as you like.

Remember to save the css file, close and then re-open the browser to view the update.

There is also a way to play with this live if you access the Browser Toolbox: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Browser_Toolbox and access userChrome.css: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Style_Editor

Hope this saves someone the hours I spent finding this solution. Cheers!
