How to get the cursor to default to tags (or last used) field when editing bookmarks via the star

more options

In previous versions of Firefox if you clicked on the bookmark star then in the tags field on one tab, then went to another tab and clicked to edit bookmark again, the cursor would be automatically in the tags field.

If you had clicked in the name field the cursor would be in the name field again.

Now Firefox places the cursor in the name field everytime.

How do I change this to default to the field which was last selected.

I'm using Firefox 31.0

Hello,

Firefox automatically creates backups of your bookmarks, which can be helpful if your bookmarks are lost or missing. To recover them, follow the instructions below.

  1. Use one of these methods to open the Bookmarks Library window:
    • Firefox 29 and above: Click the Bookmarks button Bookmarks-29 and select Show All Bookmarks.
    • Previous Firefox versions: Click the Firefox button and click on Bookmarks. (If you don't have a Firefox button, click the Bookmarks button Bookmarks button win 2 or Bookmarks menu item and select Show All Bookmarks.)
  2. At the top of the Library window, click on Import and Backup and select Restore.
  3. Click the date of the bookmark backup you want to recover.
  4. In the new window that appears, click OK.
  5. Your bookmarks from the selected date should now be restored.

For more information, see the Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer article. For other solutions, see the Recover lost or missing Bookmarks article.
