Hi there, I run FF 73 on Lubuntu, and since the upgrade chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul is no longer found. I use it as a handy bookmarks and downloads manager within a tab. Error message:

"Firefox can't find the file at jar:file:///usr/lib/firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/browser/content/browser/places/places.xul. "

I realize that this question is similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223548#answer-1127393 but it doesn't solve my issue. In fact the URI's listed also don't work I have found:

   chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/historySidebar.xul 

Please advise. Thanks for your help!

I want to sort all of my bookmarks in all folders and their sub-folders by name on one click automatically.

I don't want to sort my bookmarks folder by folder since I have tons of bookmarks organized in tons of folders. I looked up the help article "Sort your bookmarks to quickly find the ones you want", but it only shows how to sort individual folders automatically. So I tried to sort them all by multi-selecting all of my folders (no individual bookmark selected) and right-click to sort by name. And the option is unavailable (see image).

Could you include an one-click automatic sorting option in the future updates?

IIRC, in v60.x ESR the icon at top used to display bookmarks by default, and you could also look at history. Perhaps I'm remembering it wrong (It's the icon that looks like 3 books with the 4th leaning to the left.

In v68.8.0esr which is now installed it shows "Recent Highlights". I want to get the old behavior back. The following will remove the recent highlights (except the title "recent highlights"). But the bookmarks are not shown unless I click on Bookmarks.

#appMenu-library-recentHighlights { display: none !important; }

How do I get the old behavior back?

I know I can add an extra icon (display bookmarks menu), but I'd still need the other one to access history. Perhaps if there were a History icon and a bookmarks icon, that would do as I don't use sync, and there is already the downloads icon, and I don't need the Pocket List.

I did not make any changes to options. When I started today, I went to find a website from history and all my history from the day before was gone. AND have of the list space was full of bookmarks. How could bookmarks be in history? Why is my history gone?

Is there some keyboard command that was done by accident to cause this? This has never happened before.

My dad uses Chrome not Firefox. So anything he does should not affect my settings.

Is there a way to fix this? or to keep it from happening in the future?

I was using Firefox on a 2015 Macbook Air for the longest time and I was perfectly happy with it. It saved my bookmarks, history, and the handy little bookmark toolbar at the top of the page that I could just click my top visited websites. I just upgraded to a new Macbook Air and installed Firefox again because I was so happy with it before. Well, now it's terrible and I wish I could install a later version. I started it up, saved certain websites for my bookmarks and put my most visited websites up at the top of the page (enabled bookmark toolbar). I thought all was well until I exited out and started Firefox again. All of my information was gone, including my bookmarks and bookmark toolbar. There's an option to create a Firefox account, so I did that thinking it would solve the problem. Repeated all steps from before with my bookmarks. Exited out and started Firefox again, everything gone. Noticed I was signed out of my account, signed back in; everything gone. Also, same annoying startup pages as if I had just downloaded it.

This is so infuriating! I want to keep using Firefox because I liked it so much before, but not if these crap keeps happening! I'm hoping to get a solution, otherwise I guess I'll just have to start using Safari.

I've tried restoring them from previous saved points but there are none either, the only one that remains is one containing the same fresh install bookmarks

Since Firefox 77, the old style URL bar is gone, replaced by something else. There are several solutions around to get most of the old behavior back. One particular thing that I am still missing is curating your frequently visited pages.

Let me explain: I have configured Firefox, so that the URL bar on opening shows my frequent pages (like in old times). Sometimes, I page made its way in there that I didn't like. When going to that entry and pressing delete, I was able to remove it from this list and for it to no longer show up. In Firefox 77 this is no longer possible and now mutliple entries for the same top-level website and some unwanted business entries are clogging up this list.

Any idea how to solve this?
