When I click Bookmarks in the menu bar, and let up on Bookmark this page, nothing happens. When I check my bookmarks nothing has been added. I am used to a popup window that allows me to choose which folder to put the new bookmark in. It no longer appears. I tried reinstalling Firefox and this did not help. What do I do to restore Bookmarking capability?

Hello!

Have you tried adding a bookmark using CTRL+D and then pressing Done. Make sure that you've stored it on the Bookmarks toolbar or in a folder. Please check back afterwards and update us on your progress.

Quick question: Are you using any sort of add-ons that might mess with bookmarks?

The "Edit This Bookmark" dialog that opens if you click the highlighted star has a checkbox with "Show editor when saving" (shortcut key in the dialog is Alt+S). This item is at the bottom just above "Remove Bookmark" and "Done".

See "How do I change the name or location of a bookmark?"


If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

This can be caused by a problem with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite databases in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page

If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

  • keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
