Using windows 11 on a desktop PC. Firefox has been my default browser for decades...issues have been very rare. But this is a catastrophic problem. One of those folders contains links to equipment mfrs, the other one has links to dealers and retailers. In the last month TWO folders and all their contents have vanished from my bookmarks sidebar and cannot be found anywhere on my computer. I NEED those folders...Where did they go and how do I recover them ?????

Help to do that will be appreciated!

Got a new PC and loading all the software (ugh). I made Firefox my default browser and opened my Yahoo email. I tried synching the bookmarks and picked Sync Now but the old bookmarks are not showing up. I still have a laptop with all the old bookmarks (from synching automatically). Can I export those to a thumb drive and bring into the new computer somehow? Do I risk losing my bookmarks on the laptop when I turn it on? Fred

Hi, firstly, I am not very technical so I will describe my issue as simply as I can. When I open my Application Menu (3 horizontal bars on the top right hand side of my screen, underneath the X) and click on the Bookmarks heading, there is a heading showing as Recent Bookmarks. This then lists bookmarks that I have used. As I do not want this list. How do I stop/get rid of this "Recent Bookmarks" heading &/or list. Thank you to anyone who can help (without a lot of jargon/computer speak).

After Windows update - issue with Bookmark-Tags

Hi! I was prompted earlier today to update Windows 10 on my laptop, and now adding tags to Bookmarks isn't working correctly.

If I try to add tags to a bookmark, normally - I start typing the tag and if I already have tags starting with those letters a list would usually show of my existing tags that start with those letters - and I can choose which tag I want to use.

Since the update, what I get is a list of what tags are already on the tag-line for my bookmark! This is terrible.

I have a huge library of Bookmarks - most of which are extremely well-tagged.

When I start typing a tag name, I need the interface to act like it did previously - and show me what tags I have that start with those same letters.

My Firefox browser is on auto-update so it's up-to-date.

I hope this gets fixed very shortly because I really hate it! And I'm constantly adding new bookmarks and editing my old ones - so this is such an annoyance.

I hope my description is good enough because I can't get a screen-shot (as soon as I try to activate the screen-shot thing, clicking to do that makes my Edit Bookmark window disappear).

I do hope this gets sorted out soon! BTW, I'm usually very happy with the Bookmarks system :) ~Liz

Hello,

I was having a problem recently with blue screens of death so I had to factory reset my PC - but not before backing up my personal files to an external hard drive.

Upon re-downloading Firefox, my saved passwords have pulled through with my profile (thankfully) but my bookmarks have not.

Am I missing something or should they have pulled through too?

I've tried the obvious like "Manage Bookmarks -> Import & Backup" and also looking for the file manually in AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\q6xxdvnd.default-release\bookmarkbackups

If anyone is able to help, it would be much appreciated

cheers

I see this is a known bug but this bookmark sidebar has suddenly started to appear on my desktop when ever I open Firefox and there seems to be no understandable method to turn it off although there are several arcane techniques that require me to go to weird places and change the names of files. No indication of what the unintended consequences of that might be. Is this something you can fix? Will the next update. This is really frustrating. Help please. So to be sure, I do not consider the challenge of getting into the pants of a program to fix a bug to be fun, exciting, interesting, etc. This is a tool and my browser is acting up. That is a pain in the butt not an adventure.

I recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox on my Mac and successfully imported all data, bookmarks etc. However I cannot figure out how to ADD a new bookmark to an existing folder. Every page I read about bookmarking fails to show how this is done. In Chrome its simple since the drop down menu allows the user to view every folder, but in Firefox I don't see how to do this. Furthermore, when I go to Bookmarks>Manage bookmarks I don't see any of my folders..PLEASE show me an EASY way to do this. Thank you

I have used Firefox for years. Yesterday, somehow "Pocket" login is all I can see on the bookmarks drop down menu and my bookmarks toolbar is blank. I can see the toolbar, but nothing is on it. I disabled the Pocket add-on, selected the toolbar and bookmarks to Always Show. None of the suggestions I found in the community have helped. I do not have a Customize option in the "hamburger" menu as I have seen in recommended.

I have gone into Settings and deselected everything Pocket.

I have to go into the menu, which shows "recent" bookmarks, and then have to search the bookmarks.

How can I get my bookmarks back on the toolbar and get rid of Pocket. Thank you!

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 :)
