Ubuntu :: Firefox Bookmarks And History Not Accessible

Jan 11, 2010

My firefox bookmark and history is not accessible, instead a message is shown at the top of firefox window. The message reads:
Browser Startup Error
The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem. And it links to this mozilla page. How to find the error?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Gives "The Bookmarks And History System Will Not Be Functional

Jan 25, 2011

OS: Ubuntu 10.4 I performed a routine "apt-get update", which apparently upgraded firefox to 3.6.14. If I start FF from the root account, everything works just fine. However, if I start FF from any normal user account, I get the error message: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem" Running FF from root does not give the error (but then, who runs FF as root?). I looked at link at [URL] And renamed the places.sqlite to places.sqlite.old as instructed. Same error. So I quit FF and completely wiped out the .mozilla folder.

FF dutifully created a new .mozilla folder, then promptly gave me the exact same error message again. This STRONGLY indicates that it is not a permissions issue (besides, I looked at the permissions and everything in the .mozilla folder is owned by the user with at least rwx------ permissions... Now I give up on this version of FF (3.6.14pre (Namoroka)) and apt-get remove it, then issue apt-get install firefox-3.5. It re-installed apt-get install firefox-3.5... (the /etc/apt/sources.list file is attached).

Software :: Firefox 4 Import Bookmarks?

Mar 28, 2011

I just recently figured out how to import bookmarks with FF4. Why did Mozilla see fit to Hide the "Organize Bookmarks" behind the "Show All Bookmarks" menu is beyond me?


Click on "Bookmarks" ==> "Show all Bookmarks"

In the resulting dialog box click on: "Import and Backup"

Next, Click on "Import HTML"

In the resulting dialog box select the "From an HTML File" Radio Button

Now, navigate to the file that you saved previously, select that file and click on "Open".

A few seconds later all of your bookmarks will appear.

OpenSUSE :: Check Alive Bookmarks In Firefox?

Jun 15, 2010

I have a LOT of bookmarks collected in time in my Firefox Browser, but i have found that some of them are dead.

I was "googling" around and found that:

wget --spider --force-html -i bookmarks.html

Can check all the bookmarks if are online/offline, but where it saves the results?

So the question is: Someone knows an app to check my bookmarks online/offline state?

Ubuntu :: Moving Bookmarks In Firefox Causes To Freeze?

Feb 6, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop computer which runs a Core 2 Duo at 3.2ghz and I have 2 gig of RAM. I have installed all the latest Ubuntu updates.

In Firefox, I have about 70 bookmarks in the bookmarks toolbar. Obviously the bar can't show 70 so most of them are in the dropdown section of the bar on the right. When I add a new bookmark, Firefox adds it to the end of the dropdown. Sometimes I want them to be closer to the top so I scroll down, click and drag it up closer to the top. In Firefox under Windows this works fine. However in Firefox under Ubuntu, as soon as I start to drag it up Firefox turns gray and Ubuntu totally locks up. Everything in Ubuntu freezes. The main bar at the top stays color, only Firefox turns gray. I tried clicking around but it's frozen. I tried pressing Esc, ctrl-alt-delete, and a number of other keys but noting will unfreeze Ubuntu. I have to physically turn off my computer and reboot.

I have had 2 people ask me about this lately so I thought I would try it. They want to take a bookmark for a site and put it on their desktop. Seems easy enough - just drag the bookmark to the desktop. It works in chrome but when I tried it on 2 different pc's I get the same error:
Error while copying
There was an error getting information about ""
Automount failed: DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs: Mountpoint Already registered
I could just have them use chromium-browser I guess.

I have a Dell studio 1745 laptop and a homemade desktop. The laptop dual boots Winblows 7 & openSUSE 11.2 x64. The desktop has openSUSE 11.1 & Winblows XP.

I'm using Firefox on all the OSs' and would like to be able to copy only part of the bookmarks file (not the .json file). I can edit the bookmarks.html file but have trouble finding section boundaries.

Could someone recommend an editor that can display and edit html? All I've used so far are text editors.

Ubuntu :: Disable Icons In The Firefox Bookmarks Tool Bar?

May 20, 2010

Is it possible to disable the icons in the bookmarks tool bar? You know what I mean: my facebook bookmark always has this little F right next to it, the ..... bookmark has the red and white ..... icon, etc.

Those are pretty nice, but they don't really work within the theme that I am using (airlines).
To relax my eyes, I usually pick less colourful themes. So it'd be cool to get rid of all those obtrusive icons.

I know that some firefox themes don't have them. But I think I like the default one, just not the icons.

I have done a search there and I didn't find any discussion on this. My apologies if this has already been discussed. In which case, an admin can always close this thread, and redirect me.

Oh: this might be important: I am using Ubuntu 10.04. and firefox 3.6.3
