I use the the bookmarks toolbar extensively, I have nested folders in the toolbar. Recently one of my folders disappeared, I blame my wife but it could have been me... I am hoping it got dragged to another folder but have not been able to find it yet. I used the "show all bookmarks" page and searched and found one of the links in the missing folder but I am unable to tell where the bookmark is stored in my hierarchical organization. Can anybody give me some pointers on finding my missing folder?

Thanks!

Hi,

problem is i have to press Ctrl+D twice in order to choose the folder the bookmark will be saved to (on the first one it only shows "saved to library"). This odd behaviour only started like 2 weeks ago, i havent installed any new plugins neither did the system change. I am on Kubuntu 18.04. with Firefox 79.0.

I installed Firefox on my mac a few months ago. Worked a LONG time to save/organize all of my bookmarks. For whatever reason.. was logged off or kicked off of Firefox. When I logged back in-all of my bookmarks were gone. I looked all over the site for help....and after trying one suggestion-thankfully....I was able to have a few of them returned to my sidebar. I am still missing many. I again searched all over the Help section; however, I have been unable to get them restored. If I manually re-enter as many as I can remember-how do I assure this doesn't happen again? And secondly, anyway I can continue to work to re-install the rest of them? I am missing my most recent bookmarks and unfortunately...I cannot recall the sites for the specific articles I wanted to research. If anyone is able to help me, please use simple computer terms/directions as I am not an IT specialist. :) THANK YOU in advance!!!

Sorry if long-winded, just trying to provide pertinent info...


So, when I click on the bookmarks icon, I get the following options...

View Bookmarks Sidebar Show All Bookmarks Bookmarks Toolbar Other Bookmarks

The only one I ever use, the only one I need, is actually the Other Bookmarks folder.

This means I'm at minimum two clicks from my bookmarks, and three clicks from an actual bookmark.


My question...


How can I fix Firefox so that when I click on the Bookmarks icon it actually shows the bookmarks I seek to find, instead of all that other fluff I never use?


It'd be so nice to be only two clicks from a bookmark, thus...


1) Open Bookmarks icon 2) See my bookmarks


Thanks for any help you can provide here, as it is so annoying the way it is now.

Hi community, I want to bookmark only sites I wish to return to, but it seems that my entire history is bookmarked. I don't mind Firefox remembering my entire history, but it seems as though one's history and bookmarks and library are one and the same thing. I started using, "tags" to deal with it, but even tags require me to dig through my library/entire history to find them. Isn't there some way to have my bookmarks be separate from my history/library? Thanks in advance!

I recently purchased a 2020 iMac and have found accessing my yahoo mail account cumbersome. Each time I open Firefox, I have to start from scratch to access my yahoo emails (search for yahoo mail sign-in link, enter yahoo email account, enter yahoo password). Incredibly time-consuming and frustrating. On my previous iMac (purchased 2008!), yahoo mail opened immediately when Firefox opened, making it very easy to quickly check my email. I have been unable to reproduce this rapid access route, despite spending a few hours on the phone with Yahoo (which finally gave up and suggested asking Firefox). Bookmark for yahoo mail vanishes when Firefox is closed and then re-opened. Same for top sites. Direct yahoo email access remains only as long as Firefox remains open. I would appreciate help in creating an efficient route from opening Firefox to reading my yahoo emails. Thanks!

Hello!

When I add a bookmark, I often find myself in the situation that I would like to adjust the URL. Alas, this cannot be done in the pop-up dialog that appears when clicking on the star button in the address bar.

Then again, it's quite tedious to find that bookmark in the bookmarks library to edit the URL there.

Am I missing something here or is this a missing feature?

Hello

I have a problem when restoring the file from one computer to another, when I want to restore it it gives this error "Unable to process the backup file". I have been looking for some program that allows me to unzip or remove the data or repair.

I have consulted many forums and videos and I cannot know if the failure is irreparable or is there any way to get the information I have consulted this page but it does not finish working https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html

while i was doing something else, a new version of firefox asked to be installed. I closed the window but somehow it continued. I have a new version but all my bookmarks and bookmark tools etc are lost. I tried to follow the instructions from help, but it seems like the bookmarks have been deleted there is nothing in them. Are they stored anywhere in the computer and if so, how can I import them?
