Bookmarks toolbar missing - but in just some windows

For about a month now I have had an issue with my Bookmarks toolbar disappearing. I have a few different windows that I always keep open and each has a few tabs open or pinned. On just some of those windows, the "bookmarks toolbar" has disappeared (it was there, then it was not). I definitely have "bookmarks toolbar" checked in customizing, so that is not the issue. I found a trick that if I move one or more tabs into a new window (slide to side) that the new window would then have the bookmarks toolbar back. BUT, when I tried that today, I would only have the bookmarks toolbar showing when the window was reduced in size, but if I expanded to full screen, it disappears. How do I get my "bookmarks toolbar" to ALWAYS show in all windows? The only thing that I have changed in my behavior is that I now keep several tabs pinned... wondering if somehow that is causing problems? Please note, I have tried resetting customizing and rechecking "bookmarks toolbar" but that has not resolved the issue. The only extensions or any add-ons that I have are "Adblocker Ultimate" and "Facebook Container". And no themes. I have not "refreshed firefox" because of how much work that would involve to save history, get eveything back to the way I like it, etc., so I am hoping to not have to do that unless you know for sure that would resolve my problem. Thanks.

per the subject, some of my bookmark HREF records in the file are very short, like this:

<A HREF="https://www.enterprise.com/" ADD_DATE="1605967404" LAST_MODIFIED="1605967416" ICON_URI="https://www.enterprise.com/etc.clientlibs/uscc-static/clientlibs/web-resources/resources/icon-192x192.png">enterprise</A>

but then some of them contain thousands of bytes of token data, hash data, or some other kind that seems to be some sort of output from the page that is bookmarked. here's the truncated version of just such a record i see:

<DT><A HREF="https://www.uscellular.com/support/contact" ADD_DATE="1605967404" LAST_MODIFIED="1605967416" ICON_URI="https://www.uscellular.com/etc.clientlibs/uscc-static/clientlibs/web-resources/resources/icon-192x192.png" ICON="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAMAAAADAC........>US Cellular</A>

but the continuation of that data will go on for 100+ lines. why is this? i have attached an image that shos most of the endless data I see. thanks.

Bookmarks is broken. Again. When I got on my computer in the morning, there were double bookmarks. Since I didn't look in the folders of the bookmarks, I deleted one version and then found out that all the folders in my normal bookmarks folder were gone. I tried restarting, restoring, and importing bookmarks. Each time, it ends up with there either being no bookmarks or just one single folder with all of my bookmarks not in their folder, without logos. And when I try to export HTML files, I can't find them on my computer. This may be related to me recently turning on iCloud and turning it back off and then back on. In one of the restore files, everything was in their proper folders (although still no logos - just the black Internet sign) but it didn't work and soon reverted back to the single folder.

As of today, I am unable to save a bookmark to my choice of location. I searched to see if by chance it landed somewhere I didn't want it to, but it is no where to be found despite the bookmark indicated that it had been saved to my location choice. I have restarted and cleared all cookies and cache. Still a problem.

Hi. The message "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..." has appeared at the top of my Firefox window. I don't think it's been there for more than a couple of days, so it must have been added by a recent update. I already have my bookmarks available just fine, so is there a way to get rid of the message? Thanks!

Hi guys i'm new in the forum so i have no idea if anybody else allready had my problem,i've tried to fix it myself but i cant seem to get it done. Yesterday i had a problem with my OS linux,and i had to reinstall the system,while i was pretty sure i had all bookmarks saved in an external HD i went straight to a quick format and reinstall of the OS,after installed all the due system update.

The Problem:

While i was importing the bookmarks.html i stored in external HD i noticed that nothing was being added in the bookmarks of Firefox,so i tried few times just in case i was doing something wrong but still nothing was being added in the bookmarks,so i tried to import the bookmarks on Tor Browser and the same thing happened nothing was imported. So it came to my mind that the .html file could've been damaged. Now i tried many ways to open the file either in command line or text editor i even tried using libreoffice,in the case of text editor,command line such gedit,pico,nano it loaded the file but it was heavily encrypted,in the case of libreoffice shortly after i tried to open the file popped up a message telling me that the file was corrupted and libreoffice couldn't read it and stopped.

I need a solution to either fix the .html file or decrypt it so i can recover the web addresses inside and it would be very bad for me since my bookmarks.html is 3.3Mb large with ALOT of bookmarks inside.

Can anybody tell me how to?

Thank you in advance for any help or suggestion that may help me to retrieve my bookmarks. Ludo.

P.S. OS Linux BackBox 7 up to date along with it latest version of Firefox that update server provides me.

Last week, I had to re-installed OS X 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion) on my iMac because of lightening bolt surge. And, after doing so, I then had to re-install the Waterfox browser app. to gain better access to my email account (because the old version of Safari that came with the vintage OS re-installation is no longer viable)

My questions are: 1. Do my former bookmarks (or the Waterfox profile that they were stored in) still exist somewhere? and 2. Is it possible to retrieve them to replace (and/or add them to) the new profiled bookmarks created with the updated Waterfox app.?

I've already tried following some of the suggested help from the forum questions that I read here, but have been disheartened because no backups for my years of bookmarking seem to exist. Sadly, I never knew that there was a way to back up bookmarks prior to this recent investigation.

I use the bookmark bar very heavily and my workflow was to just "drag" the tab with the mouse to folder in the bookmark bar, which would unfold and I drop the tab/bookmark in the desired sub-folder.

This worked really well for me, and was fast.

Recently, this stopped working. I can still drop a bookmark in one of the main folders in the bookmark bar. But not in any sub-folder, since the main folder closes as soon as I move the mouse inside it. It is also not possible anymore to move the already-saved bookmarks around via drag&drop.

Using Firefox on desktop, Windows 11. I am a long term Firefox fan/user.

My problem is I cannot find anywhere an easy method to add a shortcut on my Home Screen (which has now been a FF feature for some considerable time).

I am sure there was something available to do this in a prior version some time back. If I search the internet, I only come across articles describing how to do it on Firefox Android.

I know I can manually edit a box on the Home Screen to create what I need.

Sometimes new web sites that I visit appear in the boxes and I can then pin them in place - but the behavior around this is very erratic and unreliable - seems like random chance for an icon to appear on the home screen for a newly visited site. If this was more consistent, I could work with that.

BUT - where is the **intuitive** option??!!

I should be able to right-click on a tab and select "Add to Home Screen".

As simple as that.

Or drag and drop a link, or tab to the home screen - but this just opens the link. I have tried everything obvious that I can think of.

Anyone?

Many thanks :)

For some reason my Bookmark Tool Bar no longer displays anything. It is a blank strip across the top of the screen. However all of my bookmarks can be displayed on the right or left side of the screen in a vertical format. I can not find a way to repopulate the original Bookmark Tool Bar and find the current display very awkward give the number of bookmarks I have on file. Is this a result of an intentional upgrade or software failure?
