Hello Community

Do hope someone can help?

Have tried all suggestions in Support area on topic: Lost/Recover Bookmarks. Also spoke to Windows Support and was told to call Mozilla Firefox Technical Support. I've been unable to find a number.

I had a Windows update around the same time as a Firefox update, May/June, only realised all saved bookmarks prior to June 2020 have disappeared. This has never happened before.

Urgently need to find out if there's a method of retrievel or have it confirmed that all of these very important bookmarks are permanently lost.

Thank you in advance

i accidentally, somehow, through moving the mouse around while clicking on the star in the URL bar that used to allow me to "bookmark this page" quickly, made it disappear. i tried to restore it by looking for an option in preferences, in the bar itself, and by "restoring default settings" for the whole browser toolbar. it is still not returning there. i would much like it back, rather than having the click the 3 dots on URL to get that option, or use keyboard shortcut.

please advise. thank you

I use the Bookmarks Bar extensively. But all the folders are the same color. I would find it much easier to find things quickly if I could change individual folder colors.

Any way to do this?

I'm already using Jscher's excellent UserChrome script to make the folders an attractive yellow, instead of gray. But can this be done for individual foders?

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.

Is this possible? I like the sleekness of not having the bookmarks bar but it would be very helpful to have it popup when I open a new tab only. (I use this feature in Brave browser, but I prefer Firefox)

I searched the entire web and looked for add-ons and couldn't find a solution. I have attempted to create a custom chrome css file but that didn't work.

What can I do?

edit: added question mark to title.

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 ?

Thanks in adnace for any assistance Ken

Bookmark manager is quite good - the manual organization is simple, but I'm confused in same case over and over...

I'm pretty sure, I have some bookmarks already saved to somewhere. But I have a lot of bookmarks. And yes, I can search for some bookmark - the manager find them - I can click and all is running, but - where is the bookmark hidden ? In which folder ? Next time I want to go to bookmarks menu and select that bookmark directly... Not calling BM again and again...

This simple information is missing in searched bookmark, when clicked on them once.

It shows: - name - address - tags - keywords

BUT NOT WHERE IT IS... (?) The folder where it stays...

Do You think it is not important ? For Me sure...

Or I have overlooked something ? Maybe ?

Thank You.

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!
