Q: Firefox Sync Bookmarks [moved to Firefox forum]

I set up Firefox Sync Bookmarks on my PC where and how do I get my Bookmarks which are being synced and saved ?

Preferred Solution: Firefox Sync Bookmarks [moved to Firefox forum]

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Firefox Sync Bookmarks [moved to Firefox forum]

Your Bookmarks, and anything else you chose to setup in sync, to save are sitting in your Sync Account. You login to your account, from any added devices you also setup.

I set up Firefox Sync Bookmarks on my PC where and how do I get my Bookmarks which are being synced and saved ?

A:Firefox Sync Bookmarks? (Moved from Windows 10 forum)

The purpose of the Firefox sync feature is to allow another device (PC - Phone - etc) that has Firefox installed the ability to sync the bookmarks, history etc to itself. For example. I have a Desktop PC, A laptop PC and a Android Smart Phone. Each of these devices have FireFox installed. Each of the devices are sync'd together. So if I save a bookmark on my PC, I can then use Firefox on my Smart phone and the bookmark will appear there and can be used by FireFox.

Its not really a backup. It just makes what ever your syncing available on all devices that use FireFox.

Firefox has been freezing up on me, and when I close it down, I get a bluescreen error. It also happens a lot of the time when I close Firefox down normally. This was happening before I updated to the latest version of FF. I am running Windows XP, and have recently started using ZoneAlarm and Avast on my system.

A:Firefox closes = bluescreen error? (Moved for the mozilla/Firefox Forum)


Can you give us the error in full that you are getting. Also, I would check and make sure that ZoneAlarm and Avast are allowing FF to connect to the internet.

Hello all,

I have Firefox as my browser and Yahoo as my search engine. No matter how many updates, add-ons etc I use from Mozilla re: Adobe Flash player, Firefox continues to block Flash.

My question is, what can I use as a substitute to Flash and how do I install it to work on my browser

I set up Firefox Sync  Bookmarks on my PC where and how do I get my Bookmarks which are being synced and saved ?

A:Firefox Sync Bookmarks ?

I'm not quite certain what you mean by "how do *I* get" in this context.  These are not saved for direct user access, but for access by Firefox itself.
If you are using Firefox on another computer (or even a separate account on the same computer such that Firefox runs a completely separate instance of itself) and open Sync preferences to log in with the Firefox account you created, all of your Bookmarks, add-ons, etc., will be "instantly" (however long it takes, which isn't all that long) synchronized to the Firefox session you're using at that moment.
The one thing you need to remember is if you did log in to your Sync account on a computer that isn't yours and that you don't intend to use again that you have to go back to the Sync options screen at the end and disconnect.  Otherwise your sync account remains logged in for that instance of Firefox when whoever uses it next starts it up (because that information is saved in the user profile for that person) and if they start adding, deleting, etc., it will sync back, and most of us don't want that.
This is one reason that I generally only log in to my sync account on instances of Firefox that run under a dedicated Windows account for me on various machines.  I know that if I did this temporarily somewhere else I'd likely walk away without disconnecting the sync account and that could wreak havoc.

Last month (or longer) I switched from IE to Chrome. Today I went back to IE just to get a name of a site I bookmarked and nothing was there(?) Everything was gone. What happened to all my old bookmarks and is there a way to find them?

A:Looking for my bookmarks on IE (Moved from Windows 8 forum)

Bookmarks are called Favorites in IE. I assume you looked under Favorites in the IE Menu bar? I also assume we're talking about IE11?

If so and they aren't there are you sure you're logged in as the correct user who added those sites to your favorites?

Lastly, look in this location:

C:\Users\(your usename)\Favorites folder to see if they are listed there.

Had a number of abrupt computer shutdowns due to power outage and now Firefox won't open no matter what I do. I'm trying to recover all my bookmarks before I reinstall Firefox. So, after identifying which file it is (I think) I'm trying to get a look inside so I can record everything.

Thanks! I'm all ears!

A:How do I open a Firefox bookmarks file (.json) without using Firefox?

Your bookmarks and other preferences are stored in a separate and independent location/file on your disk, so you should be able to delete and reinstall Ff without needing to do a special save for them.

I don't know if my problem is Firefox or WordPress but I thought I'd try here first.
I use WordPress to publish articles and usually copy and paste from the finished article in the Articles forum to WordPress but since I reinstalled Win 7 this no longer works as paste is no longer an option when I right click in WordPress, or at least in the particular part that I need it to. I can, however, do it in Internet Explorer, but images aren't copied over, which they used to be. I've tried all the usual things like clearing the cache, but nothing has worked. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

A:Is this Win 7 or Firefox at fault? Moved from Mozilla/Firefox browsers

I am using Win-7 too but I haven't used IE. So my suggestion is to, try another browser for the same purpose and then see the effects (I feel firefox is well suited for the purpose). If you are getting same problems then, you are missing with some features of Win-7 otherwise, it is the website issue.

Hey everyone. Why is Firefox 3.6.10 removing the bookmarks from my bookmarks toolbar whenever I add the bookmark to a folder under the bookmarks menu? Note: I am not moving them, I am going to the website and bookmarking them all over again so as to put them in a folder. However, when I do this, the bookmark gets removed from the toolbar and put in the folder. I really don't like this. I want to be able to have my bookmarks in two different places: both on the toolbar and in the folder.

A:Why does Firefox remove the bookmarks from my bookmarks toolbar?

Probably a Firefox feature to help you avoid duplicates.

After you have it once just copy it to where you want it. I just tested this with 3.5.13 copying from Bookmarks toolbar to another folder.

I tried to find my bookmarks file for Firefox on my hard drive. Mozilla help directed me to %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ which had a bookmarks file but it showed it was last updated in June. I have added bookmarks since then why aren't they shown here?

A:Bookmarks in firefox

C:\Documents and Settings\User name\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\???????.default is the folder that has your bookmarks.
You should have a bookmarks.html file and a bookmarks.BAK File (a backup file)
Then a bookmarkbackups folder with 5 bookmarks.html files in it. These are backup of the last 5 days or last 5 days that you started firefox in that profile.

I would do a search on bookmarks and see what other bookmarks files show up.

Upon the requirement to restore my hard drive, I backed up all files/folders to reinstall upon completion of the restoration. I have a folder for my "favorites" or "bookmarks" for web browsing and want to import them to Firefox. The import option imports them from another browser but I cannot find a bookmark folder in Firefox or find a method to easily move them from my folder. Can anyone provide assistance with moving them to Firefox?

I can not seem to add New Bookmarks to firefox. All my existing bookmarks are still there and work fine, however when I go to bookmark this page, I just get a blank edit this bookmark dialog box.

I've tried manually enter bookmarks by just pasting the url and giving it a name. This does add it, however when you click on it, nothing happens, and when I go to the properties, it opens a glitched properties window, where only the top of the window appears.

I see people on the firefox forums were directly to this link:

A:FIREFOX bookmarks are GONE!!

On Windows they are stored on:

It also has a backup on the same folder as bookmarks.bak

If you have a bookmarks.bak file, copy it, rename the copy to bookmarks.html and you're set. Don't do that while FF is running.
I have not had such an experience, but I am backing up my bookmarks file once in a while. Seems like a good idea.

Hi- I am in need of finding where my Bookmarks are located in the Firefox file folder. I'm hoping to be able to export them to IE7 which is my only working browser. Firefox (1.5) will no longer open. It stopped working after it was attempting to install some FF upgrade software (? application). While doing so the system locked up which it is prone to do several times a day-another post elsewhere, later. I am tempted to go ahead and install FF2.0 but fear that if V.1.5 is corrupted, I'll lose my hundreds of bookmarks for ever. Only a few are resident in IE7. Any suggestions will be deeply appreciated.

A:Where are Firefox Bookmarks

Your bookmarks.html is in your profile folder.

I use FF all the time both on my desktop and my laptop.
I keep my bookmarks up to date by keeping an updated Json file on my desktop and a backup on an external drive.

I updated last week when I got the newest version of FF. My json file is also up to date.

I don't brows much on the laptop but decided to update the FF. When I downloaded the latest ff I tried to import the json file but when I looked at the bookmarks.. they were the old set. I tried repeatedly to delete the old ones and did it manually... I uninstalled ff and reinstalled it but every time I try to get my new json file imported, it always loads the old set.

I searched for ff and mozilla files to delete any but didn't find any. I even dumped my cookies and cache but somehow I still have and old set of bookmarks turning up.
How do I get rid of this hidden file?

Mozilla (Firefox) is strange the way they upgrade. It is recommended that an older version be removed before the newer version is installed. (Normally, most upgrades take care of that for you).

Assuming that Firefox was installed before you upgraded to XP, I wonder if it would help if you un-installed Firefox and then re-installed it.
