Retrieving bookmarks from old phone

I have an old phone which runs Android 4.4.2. The manufacturer does not let me upgrade the OS to a later version. The phone has a copy of the most recent version of Firefox for Android 4.4.2, which is Firefox 68.0. In case it matters, it's the version of Firefox from F-Droid. As it is not possible to upgrade the OS version, it is also not possible to upgrade the Firefox version.

This version of Firefox is too old for Firefox Sync. It is possible to log in, but nothing is synchronised.

I need to copy all bookmarks from the phone to my computer. How can I do this?

Hello: Have 3 Android phones with same FF login. Spent 3 hours today creating the folders I needed and moving 200+ bookmarks on one phone into the folders. Logged in and synced. Logged in the 2nd phone and synced.

Folders were created but no bookmarks in them. Resynced the 1st phone and it emptyed the folders and copied the bookmarks from the 2nd phone's top folder back to the first phone wiping out my work to move the bookmarks into the folders.

I have used FF for many years and not seen a failure of the magnitude.

HOW IS SYNC SUPPOSED TO WORK?

Please give us back a way to manually export the bookmarks for backup and install on new phones. Samsung and Google copy processes for old to new phones are terrible. Third party apps are no better. Even a way to copy the litesql would be a major improvement.

Also question why the folder creation and moving bookmarks is so convoluted?

Why not click on a folder, click add, add name, click done.

Click on edit a bookmark, click move, present folder list, click desired folder, present OK or Decline, click your choice, click done.

This has got to work better than jumping all over the screen following the current convoluted processes.

Thanks,

Ken

Is there an option in settings to force FireFox to stay in the locqtion within thehboomark tree? Currently when I select a bookmark after I selected a bookmark in the bookmark tree, I have sto start from the tree root. But I structured my tree according to similar topics, so I need sometimes a location in the bookmark tree quiet similar to the previously selected bookmark. It would be helpful If FireFox would remember the previosly selected location.

Again this is MOBILE Firefox on Android and all the backing out using arrows does is leave me with yet another empty folder. F*** that arrow button!!! It really needs to be more straight forward like making YouTube playlists or even how bookmarks work with Firefox on PC.

I really do want it to work but I have never had so much difficulty adding bookmarks to folders on any other browsers mobile or PC, this sucks!

So one more time, you select edit on a bookmark then checkmark the folder you want and arbitrarily back out without using any kind of confirmation button and then go back into said folder and expect that bookmark to be there. Am I getting that right?

Cause it would super sick if there was actually a bookmark in the damn folder when I went back to it. All I have now are empty folders so what am I missing???

Thanks for the help I greatly appreciate it and I would really like to like to keep using Firefox

When are we getting the bookmarks bar? Users have been asking for this feature for YEARS, and yet you keep ignoring us, why? Why is it so hard to make?

You don't want to give us the bookmarks bar? Fine, how about fixing the home screen? Only 2 rows and 2 pages of bookmarks? Are you guys joking? How about, I don't know, 10 rows and five columns, and 10 pages? You don't have to resize anything, you just have to use the space more wisely.

Also, can you get rid of the top left logo? It's a waste of space, I already know I'm using Firefox, you don't have to remind me every time.

Also #2, move the "private browsing" icon to the 3 dots menu.

Also #3, remove the pin icon from the bookmarks tags.

Also #4, remove the grey border of the favicons, it's more space wasted, you really love wasting space and our time don't you?

Sometimes I feel like you are you do things wrong on purpose, is Google paying you to be this bad? Honestly I can't find another answer, I hope I'm wrong.

How to Add bookmarks to folders in "firefox mobile"

Step 6 is the absolute weirdest way to add bookmarks to folders and it doesn't even work!

"6. Tap a few times the ←arrow at the top of the screen until you return to browsing the web"

The problem is what arrow key?.. All I have is a checkmark on the top right of my screen! I already use bookmarks/folders in my Firefox for Windows so why does this one have to be so abstract, minimalistic and counter intuitive?

My point is that I really don't want to use a mainstream browser from apple or Google and I like everything about Firefox for PC and Android except this is damn folder UI on mobile is the bane of my existence atm.

I've looked everywhere on YouTube, Google, Reddit, and of course Mozilla support. What am I missing? Please send a video or something just to clarify what I'm supposed to do in regards to adding bookmarks to folders.

Thank you for your help and patience in reading this I know it was super long

I recently bit the bullet and am transferring from chrome to firefox. I was able to transfer my hundreds of book marks from chrome into desktop firefox, but I cannot get them on my phone. I saw one user suggest doing a "sync now" to force it, but when I tab "sync now" nothing happens and it continues reading "Last synced: Never" and I am logged into the same accounts on desktop and mobile.

How do I get this to work?
