Why won't Firefox allow me to save a bookmark to a particular folder? Book marks I try to save can't be found afterwards; why?

Posted

Every time I try to bookmark a new website the bookmark option under "Bookmarks" the action seems to happen yet the usual dropdown menu show which folder option I wish to save the bookmark does not appear.

when I try to use them Star bookmark save option on the menu bar the blue download symbol appears and slides over to the folder/list icon next to it. when I click on that icon I cannot see any options where the bookmark was saved.

Since the latest upgrade by Mozzilla I have not been able to save any new websites as bookmarks so I can find them again.
