Before downloading/reloading Firefox on my computer last night, a left click on the Bookmark Menu icon (star within a tray; moved into header space from "Customize screen) would yield a listing of my bookmark folders along with bookmarks not placed in folders. Now, to get to the same place, I have to click the icon, then click Other Bookmarks. I had this issue some time ago, and recall the solution was rather simple....something like placing the "Other Bookmarks" in another location, but I can't recall the process....help!

Attempting to seach for a bookmark (in Firefox Library) causes "not responding" message, altho search is completed in 8 minutes. Help?

Hi...Every time I attempt to search for a bookmark by clicking "show your bookmarks" (or Ctrl/shift/b), then selecting "all bookmarks", then attempting to type something in the search box, it freezes...and just allows me to press enter, it then turns the "x" in the top right red, and gives a "Not responding" message next to Library(in the top left)..I can still click the red x to cancel the search.

I say attempting to do a search, as it only allows me to type up to 4 (is the most) letters in the search box...its often just one letter before it freezes, and the curser turns into a spinning blue circle....If i just leave it for around 8 minutes,(after pressing enter) it then lists my bookmarks with the search criteria I had used, and the "Not responding" message disappears....and the machine goes back to normal

I have tried removing all my addons and extensions, tried renaming my prefs.js file, but it still hangs and takes 8 minutes.

I havent as yet done a reinstall of Firefox without any of my personal data, or tried a refresh.

The laptop is an HP i7 16gb ram, Win 10 Pro 64bit 1909, Firefox 76.0.1...with all updates present.

Greetings.

I have been experiencing a problem saving bookmarks with favicons. I am able to save bookmarks but unable to save favicons with them. This only happens when the option "Remember browsing and download history" is OFF. Thus to save a bookmark with favicon I do need to ON the above option. Consequently if the option "Remember browsing and download history-Browsing & Download History" is ON then these favicons will be deleted when close Firefox.

A few examples of websites affecting are, https://www.alfaromeo.com.au/ https://flagfox.net/index.php https://www.qbittorrent.org/

It seems only some sites are affected and in my bookmarks they are 14 of them. I would like to know how to keep favicons permanently and make Firefox not to remember browsing and download history plus let it clean browsing & download history when Firefox closes.

Windows 10 18363.836/Firefox 76.0.1

Regards,

Is there a way to sort bookmarks or require the newest bookmark to be at the top of the list? I keep adding bookmarks and the program puts the newest ones in the middle of the list somewhere. I can't figure out how to stop it from putting them in some random order. (Firefox for Android)

I have followed the methods suggested. Opened the page. Clicked on the STAR icon. Clicked on REMOVE BOOKMARK.

Unfortunately, the bookmark remains?

Opening up Bookmarks and highlighting the bookmark and right click produces a menu, including DELETE. When deleted the bookmark remains?

OS was recently updated from Win7Pro-64 to Win10Pro-64.

after system update on macbook pro (os 10.15.4) the firefox icon disappeared on the dock requiring me to sign in again with a change in password after which I discovered that all previous bookmarks were GONE! I do have the browser installed on a desktop which seems to have retained my old bookmarks. Any suggestions on retrieving previous bookmarks links and their associated login/passwords , or transferring my bookmarks from desktop to my macbook?

76.0.1 Firefox 10.13.6 Mac os

I ran Malwarebyetes and in restarting, it took a long time, after which ALL my bookmarks were gone. I cannot use the import/restore b/c while it shows the bookmark dates, when click to restore it says "unable to import the process file" on ANY dare.

    WHen I restart computer, a red banner said toolbar and bookmarks won't display.THis can be caused by security software, read more....bla bla!
  I have sync and that doesn't restore anything-bookmarks or toolbar!!!

I called Apple and they said it was b/c they wanted me to upgrad os system to Catalina, which I am not willling to do yet!!

I also have an external hard drive and iCloud/time machine backups, but I can't get those to be accepted into the Firefox sidebar and toolbar--they just show up as quick view documents!!

Why the heck is there no phone support?!?!? Help!?!!

My eyesight is limited. Unfortunately, I am unable to determine where in the toolbar of the library window the button for exporting bookmarks to an html file can be found. The attached image provides an idea of what I am looking at.

IMAGE: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-05-18-05-49-03-6c245b.png

The reason I am looking in the toolbar of the library window is the Firefox documentation for version 76 on a mac corresponds to the Firefox version I have and the computer I am running it on states:

From the toolbar on the Library window, click BUTTON ICON (PLEASE REFER TO ATTACHED SKETCH) Import and Backup and choose Export Bookmarks to HTML...

I looked across the toolbar, then the entire Window marked "Library". I wrote a program to search the Library window for an image that could conceivably be the button indicated in the documentation. Sadly, the results of these efforts is I am here requesting assistance. It is not that I do not love each and every one of you, but my preference is not to have to take the time for putting together a question to post here. It does not take long, but when we live at internet speed, every microsecond counts, I know you agree with this very important principle, particularly in light of the visit currently taking place where Covid and his entourage have all of us ridiculously locked up. We have flattened the curve and also found out the numbers Fauci and Birx showed the President to justify this lockdown have been proven, not correct, more like wildly wrong. So while we wait for the lockdown to be cancelled, my preference due to how my parents raised me is to be able to find the button described in the documentaiton, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, button not there... unless maybe you can see it and I am missing it.. My hopes is you will refer to the image at this link in order to enhance the likelihood of success in my quest of the moment, i.e., making my quesiton understandable to anyone who might be interested or/and able to persist in pointing out the location of the great button of the bookmark export.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-05-18-05-49-03-6c245b.png


Any assistance you can provide would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Dear community,

After my OS re-installation I was hoping and I was pretty sure, that my Firefox account is backing-up all of my bookmarks. I have done this again in the past and I had the bookmarks bar there always waiting for me intact. This time though I had to reset my Firefox account password as I forgot to store it somewhere and after that I managed to get access to my account but the bookmarks are nowhere to be found.

Is there a way to restore them without having a backup file (JSON or something else from the previous OS installation?). Is Mozilla storing these bookmarks somewhere so I can have them again but from the "cloud"? If not it is quite catastrophic for me. I hope there is a solution!

Thank you in advance!
