As the subject line says, I want to determine the date that I added a specific bookmark. This was incredibly easy on my old Windows 7 machine with an older version of Firefox. You just clicked on "Bookmarks" at the top of the screen, then "Show All Bookmarks", "Views", "Show Columns" (ensuring that "Added" was checked) — et voilà, there it was!

Now, however, no matter what I try, I can't seem to figure out how to do this. And searching for an answer online has proven useless, as well. The only instructions I've seen refer to how I used to do it with my earlier version of Firefox.

Has the date that a bookmark was added also been deprecated/deleted from Firefox (along with the greatly missed cookie handling of yore)? Or am I just missing something obvious?

If anyone could tell me how to find the date I saved a bookmark, I'd be in your debt.

Thanks in advance.

I am trying to increase the size of the font of our bookmarks on our MacBook Air laptop as they are hard to read on the smaller screen. I tried "zoom" and increasing font size in settings but that did not affect the bookmarks sidebar; only the primary web pages. I tried an add-on but could not get it to work. I did a few online searches and it appears to be a common issue but I could not find a solution so I thought I'd ask a question. Thanks for any advice that you can provide.

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 :)

I recently reinstalled Firefox after doing a full Windows reinstall on my PC. Since then, my bookmarks are not displaying on the bookmarks toolbar. I've "refreshed" Firefox from the control panel, rebooted my PC, and reinstalled Firefox. I've also moved the bookmarks from the toolbar folder in the bookmark manager and then put them back. Any suggestions?

Version 84.0.2. Windows 10. I inadvertently opened a second FF window which had no tabs and no bookmarks toolbar. I closed FF which had many open tabs and many bookmarks toolbar items. Now all tabs are lost and all toolbar entries are lost. On reopening FF, only the FF with no tabs and no bookmarks toolbar will open. I have searched and read many "solutions", but nothing that I can get to work. Does anybody actually know what can be done or that nothing can be done. I had not yet reinstalled my general backup program prior to this so there is no other backup and all I have to rely on is FF alone. Are at least the bookmarks toolbar items stored somewhere even if the tabs are not recoverable?

All bookmarks are there except for bookmarks toolbar items.

I would like to restore both tabs and the bookmarks toolbar if possible. If anything can be done, can anyone articulate some clear instructions?

I needed to have Windows 10 wiped and reinstalled from my laptop, and the guy who did it cloned my files to save everything. I saw instructions on another post on how to find the bookmarks file under Profile, but it didn't do anything after confirming that it would wipe out all current bookmarks. What am I doing wrong?

Hi. I'm trying to organise my bookmarks, and whilst I am able to add, move and remove bookmarks themselves, I can't do anything about folders, even duplicates. Deleting in Firefox's GUI does nothing, and if I try to use a bookmark managing extension, it doesn't work either. What's going on?

I've been digging around in my system for a corresponding .txt file or whatever to manually edit, but it seems it's all on Mozilla's servers, or the file is in some obscure format I can't easily edit. Is this something to do with Firefox Sync?

I have version 85.0.1 (64 bit) on Win 10. I just created Bookmark folders and started moving individual bookmarks into the appropriate folders. How do I select multiple bookmarks so I can move a bunch at a time to it's folder? I tried CTL-CLICK but that doesn't select but rather opens the link. When I open "Show all Bookmarks it lists only the bookmark folders (which I can open and do multiple selection). But why aren't the bookmarks not in folders showing up? I can see them in to bookmark toolbar and in the >> sidebar. Have hundreds of bookmarks I collected- want to move some want to delete some. Selecting multiple for drag and drop would make my project go unbelievably faster.

Hi, I have seen instructions on the Google search on how to do this but the instructions don't line up with the current version of Firefox. YouTube videos are all about using code which is beyond me. There must be a piece of software (app) or some other simple way to do this. Has anyone found a way yet?

By using refresh Firefox to "fix" problems with slowness, I have lost all of my bookmarks and God knows what else. And I can't access the files that were created, all I get is gibberish. Why didn't Firefox inform me that using refresh would fubar ("fouled" up beyond all recognition) my computer? I desperately need to undo the damage caused by using this (dis)service. And how do I contact Firefox to tell them how badly they have screwed me over?

Hello,

I'm using Firefox Nightly and it just updated to 84.0a1 (2020-10-30) (64-bit). With this update, the "Other Bookmarks" folder appears on the Bookmarks Toolbar. It's situated on the far right, after the 2 right arrows that show the rest on the bookmarks from the toolbar. I've looked into the settings to see if this new addition can be hidden or removed, but I couldn't find anything. Can somebody tell me how I can hide it ?

Thank you, Flavius

Since I use the bookmark bar and fullscreen mode a lot, I would like to be able to see the bookmark bar in fullscreen, not on every tab, but only in a new (empty) tab, so that I can avoid disabling fullscreen to access the bookmark bar and at the same time not having any part of the interface visible unless I'm in a new tab.
