How to restore customized toolbar "properties notes"

Posted

The September 5 Firefox update removed the properties associated with my customized toolbar, which is where I had important information regarding the links such as account numbers, etc. How can I get the old version of toolbar back?

If you are referring to the Description field in the Bookmarks > Properties window, it has been purposely removed.

How to get 'er back. First off Mozilla is going the way of Microsoft and doing it their way and not how you want it. To get back you "properties" with all the remarks in them you will have to go backwards. I just did this the other day when I found more complaints. The version you will end up with is 60.2.0esr (extended service release) which is for corporations that can't upgrade all the time. If you go to: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all/ pick you language and operating system, download the file (it should say firefox setup 60.2.0esr) and then install it. I didn't even have to delete the 62.0 as it installed right over it. I have my properties back with all the notes still in them. Mozilla may not like this reply and delete it. Hope it helps you as it worked for me.
