My bookmarks....they have wandered off!

Using Chrome. Sometime in the past, I used Firefox. When I stopped, I imported my bookmarks into Chrome. I now have multiple bookmark doodads, can't figure out how to integrate them, and can't figure out how to organize them either as they are or after they're integrated. Help? [more inside]

FireFox 43 Bookmarks Toolbar is now too long.

I have 22 bookmarks I use on a many times every day. It was SUPER convenient for me to have all of them (Favicons only) in my bookmarks toolbar at the top of my FireFox browser. Now after Firefox updated to the latest version, they are all Favicons+Titles, and spill off the side, making me have to search for the bookmark, killing productivity. How can I restore them to their former Favicon-Only goodness? [more inside]

Disappearing FF bookmarks

Wanted: same FF bookmark in diferent folders. When bookmarking a URL, Firefox appears to check if the URL already has been bookmarked in any FF folder in the past. If so, FF identifies the previous folder in the Page Bookmarked popup, removes the bookmark from that previous folder and puts it into the newly selected folder choice. Is there any way to force the same URL to be bookmarked in multiple folders (short of manually tracking down the original bookmark, duplicating it, and copying it to the second folder)? This "feature" seems to be URL based, so it doesn't work to change the name of the bookmark intended for the new folder in order to keep the URL from disappearing from the original folder. Win7, Firefox 8.0.1

Is there a way to bookmark sites with corresponding screenshots?

I have a LOT of bookmarks for craft tutorials, supply places, etc. Often I can remember what the page of a tutorial looked like but can't remember what it was called, or even sometimes what it was about. ("There was this project that I remember thinking was really cool at the time... the site was really purple...") Is there a Firefox plug-in, Mac application, AIR application, or online service that lets you bookmark sites with corresponding screenshots? Thanks!

Back up firefox bookmarks as shortcut files?

Is there a way to back up Firefox bookmarks as a regular "folder" of shortcut (url) files? I know this is possible in IE - it stores the favorites as shortcut files (or at least it used to, I haven't used it in ages), so it was a simple copy and paste job. In Firefox, the only thing I can figure out how to do is export an HTML file with links to all my bookmarks. This is annoying and useless to me.

Out Of Sync With Firefox

My Firefox updated recently and now a dialog box pops up occasionally titled, "Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer." It says, "Please enter your username and password to continue." I have no username or password for Firefox. My computer is not on a network. I cancel out of this and continue, only to have it pop up again a short time later. As far as I can see, synchronization of bookmarks isn't in the help files. How do I disable this?

Firefox 2.0 for Del.icio.us Power Users

I am a del.icio.us power use, and I am trying to use the new Firefox 2.0 which integrates with del.icio.us. I'm having some trouble. First, all of the bookmarks I had stored locally that were in folders seem to have disappeared. Where did they go? Second, because I have soooo many bookmarks on del.icio.us, I have the "Bookmaek synching in progress" bar loading constantly, and it REALLY slows down my Firefox speed. Can anyone help me find my missing bookmarks? Does anyone have tips on how to use Firefox 2.0 with bookmarks without the molasses speed?

Help me make *embarrassing* bookmarks private in Firefox

Help me keep certain, um, *embarrassing* bookmarks private in Firefox. I'm looking for something that will password-protect or hide some but not all of my browser bookmarks -- in Firefox, NOT in a web-based solution (delicious, Bookmarks Synchronizer, FoxMarks, etc). Sharing or synchronization is not the issue, just privacy on my PC.
