I've used FF for years. I know how to make Folders and Subfolders in Bookmarks. I know how to add a "New Folder" either to the main list or to an existing Folder.... or at least I did.
Suddenly Folder and Subfolder making in Bookmarks is random, unpredictable and wrong.
I always 2-click on the Star, drop down arrow on the Right side of the Folder line, choose the already established folder into which I wish to add a new Subfolder, click "New Folder" and ....everything now goes wrong.
Instead of opening a Subfolder (tentatively named "New Folder") and allowing me to name it appropriately and then saving that bookmark into that Subfolder, most of the time clicking on "New Folder" (after I've already clicked on the previously established folder) causes 1 of 2 incorrect outcomes:
1) It may cause ALL of the following: (see image)
a) a renaming of the parent folder (to what I intended to name the subfolder)
b) the creation of a "New Folder" inside that folder which remains named "New Folder"
c) and the placement of the bookmark in the now wrongly renamed parent folder and NOT into the un-renamed "New Folder" subfolder.
2) It may completely randomly cause "New Folder" to open up in the "Unsorted Bookmarks" folder.
Either way, this is completely broken. I tried a restart since there is nothing to update but that has made no difference.
I'm using Windows 8.1, FF latest version 47.0.1
Thank you for fixing this.
