Using the menu line, if I click Bookmark>bookmark current tab, it used to bring up a box where I could edit the tab name and location of where to save that tab. Now, in Dec 2023, it bookmarks it but does not bring up this box. In order to see where the bookmark is, I have to again select Bookmark, EDIT this bookmark. Is there a setting I need to now adjust to bring up that box when bookmarking for the first time? I have W10 and updated Firefox.

I'm using a new PC with Windows 11 and find that I, inadvertently close Firefox with 16-20 open tabs. Most of the time when I reopen FF, the tabs are still there, as expected. Sometimes, the browser opens with just a new home page and the pinned and other tabs have closed. I can sometimes see the 16ish tabs in history and reopen them. More recently, I find that they are not in history as a number of tabs so I have to set them up again. This rarely happened on my old PC and if it did I would have bookmarked a group of open tabs that I used regularly.

The failsafe FF General setting is as follows: Startup, Open previous windows and tabs.

I don't know how I can stop losing my open Tabs but if I was able to bookmark all the open tabs to be used in case of a problem I would feel more secure.

How do I bookmark ALL or several my open tabs?

After running Import and Backup and selecting the date I want, the left column in the Library shows History, Downloads, Tags, and All Bookmarks. Under All Bookmarks, those folders have all the stuff I want in my Firefox browser. Currently my browser shows the folder names, but the folders are empty. How do I get the left column into my browser?

I had to totally rebuild my system from the bottom up. I had a copy of my old profile stored in the cloud, so I figured I was OK. When, I copied the files from the saved profile to my new profile, everything came over except my bookmarks. I copied the places.squlite and favicons.squlite files (which I understood to contain my bookmarks) separately and pasted them separately into the new profile, but to no avail. I used to keep a separate backup of my bookmarks, but when I learned that the bookmarks were kept in the profile, I stopped. How far up the creek have I gotten myself stuck, and is there a way to restore my bookmarks?

Hello, my bookmarks including the bookmarks bar have disappeared, within just a few hours of them being visible. When I clicked on the View menu button and selected Toolbars, the setting was somehow changed to Never Show. I changed it back to Always Show, but I'm curious how it would change itself to Never Show. I haven't completed an OS update for several days, and this incident just occurred today. All day long, my bookmarks were present; I turned off my computer about 5PM. When I turned it back on about 8PM, the bookmarks were gone. Help and thank you.

Is there a way to delete a bookmark from the book-mark drop-down window (accessed from triple horizontal bar/right side of browser) but retain the same book-mark that had been saved in a folder created in Other Bookmarks? I discovered that when you delete a book-mark entry from drop down menu, the same entry is also deleted from its saved location in Other Book Marks. I was trying to reduce number of unsorted entries in drop down menu while saving (and retaining) the same link in the Other Bookmarks section and folder. I want to continue using the sorting and discrete folder saving possible with the Other Bookmark section but clean up the clutter in the unsorted bookmark section.

Hello, I recently downloaded Firefox and transferred all my data from Chrome to Firefox. Everything transferred well and for a day all my bookmarks were visible at the top of the page. Then I turned off bookmarks to only show on a new tab, and then later realized that the bookmarks were not being displayed on the new tab. And even when I turned bookmarks to always show on all tabs the bar is there but nothing is displayed. All my bookmarks are still in the Firefox Library and I can save new bookmarks to the library, but the bookmarks bar above still remains empty. Clicking Import and Backup in the Library and clicking Restore hasn't returned the bookmarks to the bookmarks bar. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I cannot figure out how to export my bookmarks from Mozilla Account. On the desktop browser when I open "Manage Bookmarks" and select Phil's Bookmarks, I am able to export the bookmarks from the Mozilla account.

The resulting html export file does not contain the bookmarks from Mozilla Account. There also does not seem to be a way to export those bookmarks from your online Mozilla Account interface.

How do I export the bookmarks from my Mozilla Account?

Hello, All along I have installed Firefox on my desktop pc with operating system Win. 7 and able to surf the internet etc. though I am aware that at my own risk that this is no longer supported. Recently there was a problem with my pc and I reinstalled Win 7 using the "Firefox Setup 115.4.0esr" where my Firefox account is now related to my gmail in accounts.google.com. From this NEW Firefox website all my previous bookmarks,history etc are not restored at all and instead it showed a fresh page on Bookmarks bar. Please let me know : 1). how to perform my PREVIOUS restoration of bookmarks, history etc ? I did not perform any "Sign in to Syn" because I fear that I will lose my previous bookmarks, history etc. 2). As a test only I keyed in my google accounts password in "Sign in to Syn" and was incorrect ? How can I retrieve/view my ORIGINAL password created in Firefox when I FIRST INSTALLED years ago ? 3). Does it mean that if my ORIGINAL password created can restore all my previous bookmarks, history etc if entered in "Sign in to Syn" ? 4). I DO NOT WISH TO change password because as per article read there is risk that I will lose some/all my previous bookmarks,history etc.

Thank You for your attention and early response.

Hello Firefox Community,

I've been a long-time fan of Firefox's bookmarks management system, but over the past year, I've encountered a persistent issue that's affecting my productivity. I regularly use the bookmark bar and organize my bookmarks into folders. However, any changes I make don't seem to stick and get reset after a period of time. This is especially frustrating as I heavily rely on bookmarks to keep my browsing organized. Problem Details

Here's what typically happens:

  1. I add a bookmark to a specific folder or position, either in the general list of bookmarks or on the bookmark toolbar.
  2. Sometime later, that bookmark leaves its designated position and moves to the bottom of the unsorted list of bookmarks.

Devices and Operating Systems

  • MacBook M1 2020 running macOS Monterey
  • Dell Alienware 17 r5 running Windows 10

Both devices have the latest version of Firefox installed, and I use Firefox Sync to keep my bookmarks and settings consistent across these devices. Suspicion

I suspect that this issue occurs when I make a change to bookmarks on one computer and then open Firefox on the other computer. The bookmarks seem to reset, possibly due to some issue with Firefox Sync.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and possible solutions!

Kind regards,

I just wanted to make my bookmarks from my new PC available on my old PC. I signed into sync on the new PC and it's imported a whole of of old links and totally messed up the setup on the machine. Has it merged the bookmarks or imported old saved bookmarks from my account? Is there a way of reversing this. I selected add another device and maybe it found the old computer on which I was logged into my Mozilla account.
