Hi, I try to orginize my bookmar sidebar. I have "Other bookmarks" folder in the bottom, and try to drag it to top, but firefox creates a copy of folder instead of moving it. Also, I erroneously drag "Bookmark menu" and firefox create a copy of it inside "Other bookmarks" folder. It looks like cycle reference - when I click on "Bookmark menu" inside "Other bookmarks" I any time see again "Other bookmarks" and "Bookmark menu" inside it. Looks like nightmare! How can I fix it? please help!

My old computer became incredibly slow and almost unusable. I managed to find my firefox profile folder using the %APPDATA% search and copy it to an external hard drive and connect it to my new computer. I wanted to keep my bookmarks, extensions, and logins, so I followed this:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_copying-files-between-profile-folders

But nothing changed on Firefox on the new computer. Going back to my old PC will be incredibly tedious, so I am hoping having moved my old profile folder to my new PC I have done everything I need to. Any help would be appreciated.

PS I am at work and don't have immediate access to my computer.

Hello, I reinstalled the Firefox application, I wanted to log into my account but forgot the password, decided to restore it, reset the password, logged in and synchronized, but the synchronization did not give any results, all passwords and bookmarks disappeared. I saw a warning that each password is attached to a specific account and some data may not be restored, but I did not think that ALL data would be lost. Is there no way to bring them back? Thank you.

I cannot seem to control where a new bookmark folder goes. Each time I do this, it creates a subfolder inside another folder. I have to remember which folder it went into, then go into Show All Bookmarks and manually drag my new folder out so it's in the main Bookmarks Menu list.

It's only a slight inconvenience but annoying nonetheless. Even if I make sure that "Bookmarks Menu" is selected, it will still put my new folder inside another folder.

Is there a way to prevent this?

Hi!

Just wondering if, and where, is the option to completely remove, disable or clear out the list of "Recently Bookmarked", from the bookmarks menu?

From clicking the icon in the top right, that looks like a stack of books, and then clicking bookmarks, that drop down menu, "Recently Bookmarked".

I do not want that list and find it kinda redundant and annoying to have a list of bookmarks, that I've already bookmarked mind you, sitting there that cannot be removed or cleared. I've searched high and low and can not find an option to remove that list or option. Like a history of bookmarks, that I've already chosen to bookmark.

Bookmarkception I guess was the goal there...

Thanks!

For some reason, my long column (about 1,000 bookmarks) have an intolerable indent space/empty area to the left of each entry...about 2-3 in long and for all bookmarks, so that I have to stretch out the names and reduce my main viewer window as a result.

   IF I try to just move the whole lot leftward, that cuts out the "bookmarks" with the black star as well as search bookmarks entry bar.  A long time ago, I thought it had a left right scroll tab at the very bottom.  All support entries talk about moving the whole column to the right side of the screen-what I need is 1) an ability to move all bookmarks titles to the left edge as much as possible while keeping orientation with the top "star/bookmarks".
   I do use a zoom button for browsing the web, but reducing screen size has nothing to do with the overly fat/wide bookmarks area-there has got to be a way to put it on a diet!!!

BONUS: if anyone knows on a Mac running High Sierra or any other os, how the heck do you increase size of other menus that don't respond to zoom (command + or _)..even ones not on Firefox? Any recommended zoom apps for menus intrinsic to macs in general?

I am currently using someone elses computer because mine wont connect to the internet for some reason. But that computer should be getting fixed soon, so I wanted to take the bookmarks from this computer and be able to view them on my own later. Also, I fear I may have added too many bookmarks and add-ons because Firefox has been running extremely slowly lately. So I was going to give it a reset, which would result in losing everything. I can simply get the add-ons again but I want to be able to keep my bookmarks. I've been using an add-on called Session Sync, which bookmarks every tab you have open all at once. However, when I went to export those bookmarks, it says: "Saved session are stored as bookmarks. It's recommended to use Firefox Account to sync your bookmarks. Currenly you can only use Firefox Bookmark Manager (CTRL + SHIFT + B) to export/import all your bookmarks (which includes all Session Sync saved data). Session Sync detects automatically all updated bookmarks after an import."

So, I did what it said and exported my bookmarks but I signed in to my firefox account first. Perhaps that is what messed things up. Because now, every single bookmark I saved individually (not using Session Sync) is gone. When I look at my bookmarks, I see things I do not even recognize. I probably bookmarked them months ago, so I don't remember. There is certainly no trace of pages I have bookmarked recently, including today. When I take a look at the exported bookmarks, it's the same thing. None of the recent indivual bookmarks are there are absolutely none of the Session Synced bookmarks are there at all. So what happened to them? Why didn't Session Sync's bookmarks get included in the export like it said it would? Could have it been because I signed into my Firefox account which hadn't been used in a long time, so it swapped out the bookmarks on this computer with the ones from my account? I thought I'd try signing into this computers owner's account and hope things go back to how they were before but neither of us even new she had one or remember the password. I was going to reset the password but then it says we may lose all the bookmarks, which would defeat the purpose. But it only says it's a possibility. Is that true? Is there a good chance I will not lose them?

All I want is my bookmarks back and to be able to keep the ones from Session Sync. I did not expect this to turn into such a pain.

Thank you for any assistance, it is very, very much appreciated :)

I was having some issues with my bookmark button in the url/address bar working improperly, which wasn't the first time. However I've forgotten the fix I've used a few times in the past. I don't mean the button that exists in the gray border outside the bar, I mean the one that sat inside the bar next to the three dot option button. Specifically the one that would light up to indicate that a page was bookmarked and, when clicked, would show what it was saved as in your bookmarks and in which bookmark folder location.

The button was no longer allowing me to edit a bookmark I had recently saved when I had clicked on it, simply lighting up to show it had been saved. When I right clicked it, it gave an option to hide it and I clicked it in a rush thinking I could toggle it back on and now it's gone. Again, this is not the first time I've had this issue but it happens far apart enough I've forgotten how to fix it.

For now I have an extension that somewhat imitates this specific bookmark feature, whereas it will light up to indicate a page I'm viewing is currently saved to my bookmarks and I am able to quick save via clicking it, but it's a cheap imitation of the real thing. It gives me no option to edit the bookmark from there nor does it tell me in what location a currently viewed page I have bookmarked is located.

If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. All guides, tips, and help listed on Firefox's forums, help pages, and web searches are several updates behind or years old and absolutely worthless. Please and thanks.
