I followed the instructions to alphabetize my bookmarks in the folder from where I imported them from Microsoft Edge. When I open the bookmark icon in Firefox, all my bookmarks are alphabetized form "y" to "a". How do I put them in alphabetical order?

Sorry about the image quality, I couldn't get a screen capture so I photographed the display.

Thank you

Hello, I recently synced my devices and when I try to save a bookmark to a folder on my Windows 7 computer, I click on "choose", but folders don't come up, even though they've been synced to this computer. I have to save everything to 'other bookmarks' and then drag them to a folder. Is there a way to fix this? TYIA!

Is there a way to edit the URL of a bookmark while I'm adding it?

I've changed from Google Chrome to Firefox months ago, and this is one of my biggest gripes with Firefox ever since I switched. Back when I used Google Chrome, I used this feature when I'm bookmarking YouTube videos.

YouTube will often add extra text at the end of URLs, such as "&feature=em-uploademail." I usually remove this to try and keep my URLs as clean as possible. The inability to edit bookmark URLs while creating new bookmarks makes this process much more tedious because when I realize that there's extra text at the end of a URL I have to remove the extra text in the address bar, refresh the page, wait several seconds for the page to fully load (when the page is still loading, the title of the page is often blank), and then I can finally bookmark the video.

This issue has been so annoying to the point of where I've considered switching back to Google Chrome.

I have noticed that the favicons on a website are not being created when I bookmark a new site or when I use a previous bookmark, they are not updating.

They are showing as a world globe when first created.

They used to always work so I can only assume that one of the Firefox updates has stopped this working so can someone provide any information to help get this fixed?

Thanks.

At approximately the time FF updated automatically to release 80.0, I was unable to save a backup file (json) and restore it to another computer. First time this happened. When I completely removed FF 80.0 from the target computer and tried again, I continued to get the message: "Unable to process the backup file."

I can only imagine that FF 80.0 on the source computer is producing faulty backup JSON files.

Suggested solutions I've seen for this error message are from older FF versions.

I have one Firefox account with all my work bookmarks and another account with my personal ones. I would like to login to my work device with the latter account, but am afraid to hit OK at the prompt warning this:

"A different user was previously signed in to Sync on this computer. Signing in will merge this browser’s bookmarks, passwords and other settings with <personal account>".

I am trying to find a way to login and see only my personal bookmarks when I sign in with the personal account. I have disabled Sync for the work account and installed the Multi-Account Containers add-in, but it does not appear that either option will support this workflow. Am I doing something wrong or is there no way to keep things entirely separated? It looks like the add-in keeps my browsing data separate, but I just want to see separate sets of bookmarks when using the corresponding account.

Thanks in advance!

Hello I recently changed PC. However I forgot to backup my Firefox Bookmarks, using either the Firefox backup feature or backing up my Firefox profile data to an external drive.

I was however using Firefox sync to sync my Bookmarks between my Windows PC and Android phone. On my Android phone, I can see that all of my Bookmarks are there.

Is there a way to restore my WIndows PC Firefox Bookmarks from the Bookmarks on my Android Phone? Maybe my understanding of the sync feature is not right - I know Firefox Windows bookmarks are sync'd out to other devices like Android. However, does it work in teh reverse also whereby Android Firefox bookmarks are sync's back to the WIndows PC ?

Once every few weeks or so, I click on a Firefox dropped down bookmark folder in a clumsy way (using the non-dominant hand for medical reasons) and accidentally make that bookmark folder or subfolder 'disappear' from the drop-down list for bookmarks, and also from Show All Bookmarks. When I then export the bookmarks and do a File Explorer search of that exported html file, I do see the missing folder or subfolders in the list of links that appears, and the missing folder is where it belongs in the list. I am presuming that the drop down list will be restored when I close and reopen Firefox, and I will edit this post if not. I cannot tell what mouse action can cause this problem, and would appreciate input on that. More broadly, what in Firefox could make a particular bookmark folder disappear from the viewable lists until Firefox is closed and reopened? I have accidentally moved bookmark folders before, but the search results do not show the bookmark folders moved, but rather still in bookmarks where they are supposed to be.
