Why do my Bookmark Icons on my Bookmarks Tool Bar intermittently show up as the Target Symbol, I see three websites with this symbol at the moment. If I click on the bookmark sometimes it reverts to the correct icon. Any solutions to stop this? Thanks

I saw this topic in a couple of places on the forum, but the posts are from 2014/15, and some things have changed since then. Some updated instructions would be appreciated! I'm particularly concerned about my bookmarks.

Also, does it matter whether I had the same version of Firefox before and after the refresh? I'm not 100% sure that I did. Thanks.

I'm a gamer and alt+tab considerably often. Most of the time I end up on FireFox because I need to look at a map or browse reddit while I'm in queue. However, whenever I alt+tab frequently a bookmark will get selected as if I am clicking and dragging. The bookmarks on the bookmark tool bar always end up in different places. Is there a way to lock these links in place so I can't move them or do I have to resign myself to fixing it every day?

Hello,

I exported the old bookmarks from an old computer into a new computer with the firefox HTML file option

Once I imported them into the new version of Firefox, I could only see the "recent" bookmarks in the bookmark menu view.

I checked the settings but could not find anything to modify this.

I can see all of the bookmarks if I go into Manage Bookmarks but I can't see anything but the recent ones in the bookmark menu

I tried this on two different computers so perhaps I am missing a setting somewhere?

Thanks!

Matt

Hello,

I'm trying to sort bookmark folders by date. I followed some threads on-line, but its not saving. Am I missing something?

I'm going to Manage Bookmarks (see screenshot) i'm able to select a folder and click Views and it defaulted to 'unsorted' I select Sort by Added and the latest bookmarks in this area sort by latest on the TOP first. Perfect!

I exit out check bookmarks and they are still sorted in the reverse... meaning latest bookmark is still at the bottom and my very first bookmark in this folder is at the top.

Maybe its not designed this way? if so I don't see the reason to go under Managed Bookmarks and sort by anything if its not going to save that way.

Moral of the story trying to sort by date added in any folder not name (which is only thing I see when right clicking on any folder). I want latest saved bookmarks sorted from TOP down not latest's starting at the bottom.

Thanks

I am trying to transfer my firefox bookmarks from my old computer's hard drive to my new computer. they are both fairly current laptops, and i believe both are on windows 10 (the new one is on, i think, whatever the newest version of windows is). I cannot turn on my old computer, so I can't export the bookmarks, but the hard drive is fully functional. The problem is, I can't find where the bookmarks are located. I have tried looking through the files, I have "show hidden files" on, I have tried manually searching for "places.sqlite" and I have tried doing the %APPDATA% thing. I can see other folders on the hard drive very easily, so it shouldn't be the fault of the hard drive. If you know how I am able to find the files, please go through it step-by-step; I'm not proficient in computer things, and something that may seem very obvious and instinctive to you may be what I'm messing up on.

All the help articles tells me how to show it or how to bookmark a page, which I already did multiple times. But this issue is never solved. If I can't get this resolved, I'm going to MS Edge.

Bookmarks are saving but never show up in my bookmarks bar folders?

  • I have tried to uninstall and reinstall but still same problem. And yes I did a hard delete of all installation files in users - app data..
  • I have checked the read only is not selected in the "places.sqlite", and even deleted it to force a new one, still didn't help.
  • I have also deleted the "xulstore.json" file and that also did not help.
  • I have reset in safe mode to default setting but that also didn't help.

Does anyone please know how to fix this very annoying problem?

Please I really don't want to go back to Chrome but if that's the only reliable browser without so many downsides (apart from privacy) then I don't see any other option if I can't fix this asap.

thank you.

I have installed Firefox for windows 10 on a new laptop. I was able to sign in for synchronizing and got all my bookmarks synced on this machine. I'm able to view the bookmarks in sidebar, but the toolbar is empty. Even when i select "Always view Bookmarks toolbar", and I drag and drop "bookmarks toolbar items" to the appropriate toolbar. I've uninstalled firefox, deleted the appropriate mozilla folder in C:\ProgramData and C:\Program Files and ran cleandisk but for some reason i still am getting an empty toolbar.

I've tried several refresh installs and sometimes after I close firefox once, and reopen, the toolbar is filled with my bookmarks, but if I close it and open it again, the bookmarks are gone and don't reappear. Can anyone help?

I'm running Mojave on an Imac. I have just installed Firefox 2, updating from an older Firefox. All bookmarks are saved in a bookmarks backup .jsonlz4 file in the original Firefox Profiles folder on the Mac. I have done Import & Backup / Restore / Choose file to no avail. Nothing happened, and there are no bookmarks under the bookmark dropdown on the new Firefox browser.

The path to the Profiles backup folder runs through several levels of hidden folders. Using Terminal, I've managed to unhide all but one stubborn Library folder that is preventing me from navigating to the Profiles backup file to select it for restoration. I managed to unhide the backup file itself and save a copy to the desktop. I'm guessing that the desktop copy is not going to help me, because I'll need the path to point back to the Profiles folder.

I'm stumped. How can I transfer these bookmarks to Firefox 2? It shouldn't be this hard.

Hello,

My old PC crashed and I want to transfer my bookmarks from the old hard drive to my new PC running windows 11. I have unlocked hidden files, but when I ran drive:\Users\username\AppData\roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles nothing came up. I then ran places.sqlite and a list of places.sqlite appeared with some files having -wal &-shm after them?

I believe from reading here this is where my bookmarks are?

If so, how do I transfer them to my existing PC hard drive to use please? Many thanks Chris

I have followed these instructions for deleting all bookmarks at once but Firefox isn't responding to these commands so I have to delete each bookmark individually. To delete a lot of bookmarks at once, use the Library dialog. Either: * Ctrl+Shift+b * Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks In the left panel, click Bookmarks Menu. In the right panel, click the top item you want to remove, then press Shift+End to select all the way to the bottom, then right-click > Delete.
