Why do I have to go to the parent folder because the tag doesn't work?

more options

If I click on a Tag, which has the identical URL (Tag "Location") to what resides in the Parent Folder it will not access the website. However, if I go to the Parent Folder and click on the Bookmark the website can be accessed. The URLs were copied and pasted so there is no issue as far as the URL is concerned.

It seems as though something interferes or differs when using a Tag. Sometimes I've tried recopying the URL as displayed on the website and re-pasting it in the Tag Location (URL). That works but only on a temporary basis. The next time I access the Tag I can't connect to the website.

Is this a website issue, or a browser issue? Can a website know that a Firefox user is using a Tag to access it and won't allow access, but will if access is done through the Parent Folder?

MozillaFirefoxNewbie, thank you for posting your question. In order to better understand, can you please elaborate on what the Parent Folder is? Are you referring to a tag on a webpage? If so tags need the full url in the "src" string if it goes to another website or a different directory.

We are more than happy to help, but with at little more context we can better assist you.

-) Looking forward to your reply.

The "Parent Folder" is an add-on. Browse Add-ons and you'll find it. If you don't have it, add it. It has been a worthwhile addition. What it allows is to right click on a tag. A drop-down menu appears that say, "Go Parent Folder".

This has been enormously helpful in organizing and being able to find stored Bookmarks, especially if you've got a lot of them.

But something seems to be happening more regularly. When trying to open a website using a Tag it will time-out. It takes many tries to connect, but if you "Go Parent Folder" to where the Bookmark is actually stored the website usually opens immediately. Since both the Tag and the Bookmark appear to contain the same URL to be accessed it appears that something is happening with the Go Parent Folder Add-on or the interaction with the Tag and the Bookmark that won't allow connection to the website.

I'm no programmer, but this is where I'd look to try and identify the problem. I'm currently using Windows 8.1 and this seemed less frequent before I gravitated from Windows XP Pro. Many of these links I've had going back to Windows 2000 Pro.

I hope I've answered your question. This has become so annoying that I decided to take the time to comment about it.
