Cannot save or move around bookmarks by drag&drop anymore
I use the bookmark bar very heavily and my workflow was to just "drag" the tab with the mouse to folder in the bookmark bar, which would unfold and I drop the tab/bookmark in the desired sub-folder.
This worked really well for me, and was fast.
Recently, this stopped working. I can still drop a bookmark in one of the main folders in the bookmark bar. But not in any sub-folder, since the main folder closes as soon as I move the mouse inside it. It is also not possible anymore to move the already-saved bookmarks around via drag&drop.

Try downloading another copy of Firefox and run it from the folder. Do not sign into your Firefox account and see if you have the same issue.
Thank you for the reply.
I just tried it, it's the same behavior.
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
I started Firefox in troubleshoot mode, but the issue still persists
Interesting... Can you upload a video showing the issue?
Are you in Wayland?
Yes, Manjaro Gnome 41.1 with Wayland
We need Emoji in here. ;-)) Can you try the same steps in Firefox on KDE or Gnome in X11 instead of Wayland?
I will do that as soon as I get a chance ☺
I was struggling for a long time with the same problem and only moving to Gnome X11 from Wayland fixed this issue for me.
Yeah, Wayland is not there yet.
