I had to re-install Windows 10 and now my bookmarks are huge. I only have about 3/4 of what I once had. My browser is Firefox. Can anyone help? Thank you in advance.

Could you please describe in a bit more detail? I have no idea as to what you mean about the bookmarks being huge. Also please explain what you mean about only having about 3/4 of the bookmarks you had. If you did a re-install of Windows you should have none of your old bookmarks.

On my bookmarks toolbar the icons are large. Before I re-installed Windows 10 they were smaller.

OK, I get it now. Sorry that I can't help but you will probably be better off with someone that uses FF anyway.

Just a wild guess, this probably is not the problem but check. Open the Bookmarks Manger (Menu "Bookmarks", then Show All Bookmarks). Check the Name of the Bookmark to see how long it is. Is it the original name that you gave it? You can change the "Name" field without messing up its target site.

As I do have FF installed I just looked around and don't see anything. I did check for updates and was running version 41.0.9. After the update I am running version 50.1.0. I know that is a LOT of apparent missed updates but I don't hardly ever run FF. Are you running the newest version?

Have you tried uninstalling and then doing a new install again?

Since you did a reinstall of Windows did you also install all the proper and newest drivers for the system including mother board, video and chipset drivers?

Is it just FF or do you see other graphic/text abnormalities? I only ask this to cover the possibility that you might be running at a lower screen resolution than you were.

I doubt that anything I've said will be of help but who knows. Also my thoughts MAY get more dialog in this thread hopefully leading to a solution.

@ Acadia: I tried your suggestion intending to add a lot of characters to a bookmark and had no success as it would not allow me to change the name... :dunno:

My display setting was 150%. I changed it to 100% (recommended) and everything is good.
