QUITE SUDDENLY HAVE LOADS OF BOOKMARKS IN MY LIST TO VIEW BUT NOT ONE BRINGS UP A WEB PAGE. CANNOT DELATE ANY OF THEM, EVEN IN SAFE MODE, BUT ON INVESTIGATION ALL OF THEM HAVE NO DETAILS ENTERED IN THE PROPERTIES BOX. ANY IDEAS HOW I CAN GET RID OF THEM? Thanks

hello, this sounds like a problem that may be caused by adware on your pc.

  1. please go to the firefox menu ≡ > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc).
  2. also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there.
  3. finally, run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner, which are specialised in adware and browser hijackers.
