cant add bookmarks

Posted

I downloaded firefox 49.0.2 due to some programs i have to run not working on the updated version. (changing laptops, i downloaded on another laptop 6-12 months ago without the issue) unable to add bookmarks, ran through all the troubleshooting ideas & none seemed to work. tried everything i could think of but nothing seems to work, uninstalling & reinstalling, restarting firefox, restarting comp, running in safe mode to rule out add ons etc

Does anyone have any suggestions as its rather annoying without bookmarks?

Thanks

Hi

I recomend you use a more recent version of Firefox (like the most recent update, version 62). This is more likely to work with your Firefox Account and have many stability and security improvements over version 49.

Note that you can't downgrade a profile that is used by recent Firefox versions to an older Firefox 56- version because files have been upgraded to a newer format.

You can install a portable (ESR) Firefox version to access websites that do not work with the current Firefox release. The portable version comes with its own profile folder and doesn't interfere with currently installed Firefox versions.
