Hi, I've had Firefox 64 bit running on Windows for a while and recently was given a newer machine where I installed a newer version of the OS. I put the old HDD's as slaves in this new machine. So the old FF is in the slave machine.

I have also installed new Firefox on this new Win10 LTSC, but when I go looking in my now slave HDD I can see FF, but cannot see any bookmarks. Additionally, when I run the FF executable in the old HDD it still runs the new FF, without the old bookmarks.

So how can I extract the old bookmarks on the older FF? Without withdrawing the now slave HDD and making it a master again? As it's now missing most of the OS files too.

Thank you!

Is there any sam=ne way to get my bookmarks back? I was not signed into my browser either.

When I right-click a bookmark folder and select "Sort By Name", it sorts sub-folders to the top, then individual bookmarks after.

I prefer folders and files not to be segregated like that, but to be sorted together. That is how I have it in my file manager, I'm used to it, I much prefer it. I would like to be able to duplicate that behavior in Firefox's bookmarks. Is that possible?

Hi!

I would really appreciate some assistance. there was an automatic update today and that created a total mess. All my bookmarks reverted back to the ones I had in September 2021.

Even all the extensions were gone after that, which was quite annoying, since I had to start adding them again.

Any ideas how to get it all back?

I often use the cync, as its very a usefull tool, for when my pc crashes and I have to re-install windows. What is a real pain though, is even when I have the latest version of fire fox installed , after cync has completed, I stll get back many book marks that I have deleted well be before my last recync and with an older version of firefox. Which i find to be a real pain.

Would it not be possible to change the way cync works, ie, you cold add a button, words to the effect "cync from online to you", in that way, I know I am getting the book marks and data I sent up there last time, I cync-ed

Or to cync your data, when wishing to put all your latest bookmarks offline, would it not be possible to "clear online bookmars and data.

Anys I hope this helps you to understand the problem

Many Thanks

Hi,

I have a problem with Firefox 102.5esr on MacOS 10.13 and storing the user-profile on a SMB-share in the intranet.

On startup I get the error "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional" and as expected, bookmarks and history are not working. Access etc. in the network are correct, I tried it with two different clients on two different servers (Linux-Server and NAS), the profile is a fresh created, deleting and recreating does not help.

If I copy the created profile on the local disk, Firefox starts without an error, bookmarks/history are working, if I copy this profile back to the SMB-share, I get back the error-message.

In the past (I don't remember when it was and which version) this was working with Firefox and today it still works with the current Thunderbird.

Any ideas?

PS: The described solutions in the KB are not working: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

Thanks, kind regards, tg

I have a recent problem with mouse hover with Bookmarks in the Menu bar. Basically; it no longer shows the URL info in the drop down box, only a blank, box appears. I am using Windows 7 and the current Firefox 107.0. It appears to be a Windows 7 issue, because I have the same problem on my Win 7 desktop and Win 7 laptop, but a laptop with Windows 11 is OK.

The really odd part is this. If I run Firefox in troubleshooting mode in either Win 7 machine, the problem goes away, and the drop down box works fine, and displays the URL info. If I manually disable my add-ons in normal mode on either machine however, the problem does NOT go away.

One last odd point. On my desktop, when I am in normal Firefox mode, and look at Bookmarks in the History tab from the menu bar, the last (bottom most) bookmark, and ONLY the last bookmark WILL display the box info correctly. On my Win 7 laptop the same effect occurs, but the last (bottom most), bookmark will sometimes work properly in other folders, such as Other bookmarks for instance.

Also; the URL box does work properly with the ‘Show your bookmarks’ button, and the bookmarks menu if I use the “Open application menu”. These options produce too much ‘white space’ however, and are not as convenient to use. The drop down box works fine with other browsers, but Firefox is my favorite browser. I have searched the Internet and the forum, and not found a similar problem.

Attached are two photos showing the result in normal and troubleshooting mode. Thank you in advance.

I have had to create a new Firefox on one of my computers. I have imported my bookmarks, but there appears to be no way to import the Bookmark Toolbar. This is tiresome. So I wonder if I can use Sync to do the job? My Bookmark Toolbar exists on my other PC. Is it safe simply to use Sync to do the job of importing the Bookmark Toolbar to my new Firefox? I use Windows 10.

Hello All, I recently had to start up my brand new MacBook Pro up in "Safe Mode" to verify an unrelated problem. When I restarted my computer from safe mode, my Bookmarks were either gone completely or "empty" and I was apparently in a newer version of Firefox. I then trashed my Firefox application and tried to restore an older version via Time Machine and after I copy it to my Applications folder I get the message that I am trying to open an older version of firefox and then doesn't allow me to do that. When I followed the option to their extents, only the new version with NO bookmarks shows up.

How can I get my old bookmarks back?

Thanks bc
