Why Address bar is not showing bookmarks suggestions when I start typing?

Posted

Mozilla Firefox address is not showing bookmarks suggestions when I start typing in address bar. There are many bookmarks and either I have to type the whole web site completely or I have to go bookmarks menu separately & then I select the bookmark. I want that when I start typing in address bar it should start giving me suggestions from my bookmarks. Please help.

Do you still have the default setting for the location bar?

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > Location Bar: When using the location bar, suggest:

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.
