I just got a new computer and had my info transferred. It is probably the latest version of Firefox on the new computer now. On the previous version it seems like Favorites was spelled out toward the top of the page on the left hand side. I see now it is just a star icon. Is there any way to get it the way it used to be? I'm sure I will get used to it the new way, but I still liked it the other way. Thanks

As of an hour ago suddenly all of the usual suggestions and autofill with bookmarks in my address bar are wrong and out of order. I didn't close out of or update Firefox, I was just browsing online. I didn't change anything in my settings or have opened that up in days at the minimum. I cannot figure out how to either revert back or tell Firefox to not show me these choices so I can get my old ones.

I'll give an example: When I typed in "ma" it would show me mangadex.com, which I often go to. Now when I do it not only is 5th on the list it shows up and fills in "https://www.manticgames.com/", which I don't have that specific page bookmarked. I have "https://www.manticgames.com/games/kings-of-war/" bookmarked, but not that homepage. But now all of a sudden it is showing me the homepage of that site when I begin to type in "ma".

This is incredibly irritating and I have no idea why it's doing this at me out of nowhere. I don't want about anything showing up besides my bookmarks and specifically only the pages I bookmarked.

I have followed these instructions for deleting all bookmarks at once but Firefox isn't responding to these commands so I have to delete each bookmark individually. To delete a lot of bookmarks at once, use the Library dialog. Either: * Ctrl+Shift+b * Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks In the left panel, click Bookmarks Menu. In the right panel, click the top item you want to remove, then press Shift+End to select all the way to the bottom, then right-click > Delete.

Hi @all,

I reinstalled my computer from scratch with Windows 11, before this reinstallation I had Windows 10. Now I noticed that with the newest Firefox version 109 (that I also had before with Windows 10) and Windows 11 my multirow bookmarks toolbar doesn´t work anymore. Before the reinstallation it worked with the following code:


/* Source file https://github.com/MrOtherGuy/firefox-csshacks/tree/master/chrome/multi-row_bookmarks.css made available under Mozilla Public License v. 2.0
See the above repository for updates as well as full license text. */

/* Makes bookmarks toolbar span multiple rows */

#PersonalToolbar{
  --multirow-bmb-n-rows: 3; /* Control how many rows are shown before scrolling */
  --multirow-bmb-row-margin: 2px; /* Control how much spacing is between rows */
  max-height: none !important;
}

#PlacesToolbar > hbox{ 
  display: block;
  width: 100vw;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems{
  display: flex;
  flex-wrap: wrap;
  /* --uc-bm-padding is defined in autohide_bookmarks_toolbar.css */
  max-height: calc(var(--multirow-bmb-n-rows) * (5px + 1em + (2 * (var(--multirow-bmb-row-margin) + var(--uc-bm-padding,2px))))) !important;
  overflow-y:auto;
  scrollbar-color: var(--lwt-accent-color) var(--toolbar-bgcolor) ;
  scrollbar-width: thin;
}

/* Hide the all-bookmarks button */
#PlacesChevron{ display: none }

/* Add some spacing between rows */
#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item{ margin: var(--multirow-bmb-row-margin) 3px !important;  }


I already tried some other codes that I found in the internet but none of them worked. I have this code in the file userChrome.css, this file is in a chrome folder and this folder is in my profile folder. Can anybody tell me what I have to do to make the multirow bookmarks toolbar working again?

Hello,

I exported the old bookmarks from an old computer into a new computer with the firefox HTML file option

Once I imported them into the new version of Firefox, I could only see the "recent" bookmarks in the bookmark menu view.

I checked the settings but could not find anything to modify this.

I can see all of the bookmarks if I go into Manage Bookmarks but I can't see anything but the recent ones in the bookmark menu

I tried this on two different computers so perhaps I am missing a setting somewhere?

Thanks!

I'm a gamer and alt+tab considerably often. Most of the time I end up on FireFox because I need to look at a map or browse reddit while I'm in queue. However, whenever I alt+tab frequently a bookmark will get selected as if I am clicking and dragging. The bookmarks on the bookmark tool bar always end up in different places. Is there a way to lock these links in place so I can't move them or do I have to resign myself to fixing it every day?

So switched over to firefox from chrome recently and one feature I really liked on chrome was the fact that bookmarks that appeared on the browser toolbar also appeared on the drop down menu: both were mirrored. Unfortunately, these appear to be two distinct bookmark sections on firefox. See the attached photo: the horizontal bookmarks toolbar displays different bookmarks than the drop down bookmarks menu. Is there any way to make the two mirror each other without duplicating bookmarks?

Hello,

My old PC crashed and I want to transfer my bookmarks from the old hard drive to my new PC running windows 11. I have unlocked hidden files, but when I ran drive:\Users\username\AppData\roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles nothing came up. I then ran places.sqlite and a list of places.sqlite appeared with some files having -wal &-shm after them?

I believe from reading here this is where my bookmarks are?

If so, how do I transfer them to my existing PC hard drive to use please? Many thanks Chris

Prior to today, occasionally I would need to restore from a Time Machine backup the files "places.sqlite", "places.sqlite-shm", and "places.sqlite-wal" into my default profile, because I would lose my bookmarks & history.

However, beginning this morning, that procedure did not work. Every time I open up Firefox, the "places.sqlite" file would corrupt immediately and no attempt at restoring (from any backup date/time) would fix the issue.

I am running Mac OS 11.7.2 (Big Sur) and Firefox 111.0.

This is VERY frustrating, because I rely heavily on my bookmarks and passwords.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Hello there; I had installed the "savefrom.net" extension. This extension automatically generated the website address to the "bookmarks toolbar". I deleted the extension and deleted the shortcut as well. But when the bookmarked website shortcut "firefox" is closed and reopened, it adds itself to the bookmarks toolbar again. No matter what I did, it didn't work. I don't want to delete Firefox completely and reinstall it. Because there are too many shortcuts and data that I use all the time. How do you think I can solve this problem?

Newbie question: today I started out using Firefox, so bear with me.

I am trying to set the Firefox Home page to display a limited number of 'pins'. Did manage to get them there, but some other pins are automatically added (based on recent visits I suppose?) So I have 8 pins, 3 I don't want. When dismissing, I get other links instead.

Maybe this is by design and can not be changed.

Vainly search for a way to have only the few pins, that I want, show there, nothing else.

Thanks!
