Imported Firefox bookmarks not showing up properly

  • Hello everyone,

    So I've recently switched over to Opera as Firefox and Chrome were giving me severe memory leak issues, and I've hit a snag.

    I've imported a few thousands bookmarks from Firefox, and they all show up in the "Show All Bookmarks" section, but in the drop-down menu, the individual bookmarks don't show up unless they're in folders, and half of the folders seem to keep disappearing.

    This happens both when importing straight from Firefox and when I save the bookmarks as HTML before importing.

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    Running the latest stable Opera version on Windows 8.1.

  • Can you post a screenshot of this problem?


    As you can see, the drop-down menu doesn't acknowledge the other two folders, although the browser itself does. If I, for example, rename one of the folders, it'll show up, but one of the others will disappear.

  • Very strange. I've never seen anything like that.
