In Version 61.0.xx, there was a description field in the tabs, which was indicated by the arrow "More". In the current version of 62.0, this field is missing.

I have a lot of records on the site in this field. After the update, I lost the ability to view this information in bookmarks. Is there a similar field in the new version?

Hi Sergey_2018, at the risk of repeating part of what has been written, I hope this may answer part of your follow-up questions.

As you discovered, Firefox 62 no longer shows the "Description" field for bookmarks. The data is still available on your system, but can't be viewed within Firefox. It is planned to be removed in Firefox 64.

To access and archive that data now, you can:

Export Bookmarks to a locally saved Web Page (HTML File)

Please see this article: Export Firefox bookmarks to an HTML file to back up or transfer bookmarks. That creates a web page, so you can open it in a Firefox tab, or in any browser. You'll notice the descriptions nested below the linked titles of the bookmarks that have descriptions.


Next steps:

This will depend on your needs.

(A) If you just need to consult the existing descriptions: the HTML file may be good enough.

(B) If you need to occasionally update the descriptions, but don't need them within Firefox: you could consider using a reference program such as Zotero (more info below) to store your bookmarks and descriptions.

(C) If you need to access descriptions within Firefox, but it's not essential that they be properties of your bookmarks: you could investigate new extensions. These may be rough for the first few weeks/months as user concerns are addressed and you may want to consider extensions that associate notes with their own list of sites rather than necessarily tying them to bookmarked addresses.

I don't have any recommendations at the moment.

(D) If you can't live without descriptions integrated with your bookmarks: you may consider the Extended Support Release of Firefox 60, also known as ESR. The ESR track was designed for companies that only want feature changes on an infrequent basis. So Firefox 60 ESR will only get security updates for the next 10-12 months, staying stable with the features of Firefox 60. Then ESR will jump to a new version, expected to be Firefox 68. We don't know what Firefox 68 will look like; it might not have descriptions, either.

More info on this option: Switch to Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) for personal use.


Migrating Bookmarks to Zotero

There are a number of tools you could use to manage notes and annotations on your bookmarks. This is one of them.

Zotero is an open source bibliographic/research tool for collecting references. Zotero knows how to read a Firefox HTML bookmarks file and will preserve the descriptions. You can keep your storage purely local, or you can optionally sync with the Zotero cloud.

This is a one-way trip: you can send new references to Zotero from within Firefox using a Zotero add-on, but you won't be able to read/edit bookmark descriptions from within Firefox.

If you want to try it:

The Zotero research tool is available for Mac, Windows, and Linux from https://www.zotero.org/

When you click an item in your bookmarks collection, Zotero displays the Title, URL, and "Abstract" which contains the imported Description. (Screenshot #1) Double-clicking the item will launch the page in the default browser.

Zotero also has an optional Firefox Connector webextension, which allow saving new pages to a Zotero collection (either under the bookmarks structure, or other folders the user created in Zotero). (Screenshot #2)

(I didn't look at cloud sync.)

Using a second program is less convenient than using Firefox features or a fully self-contained Firefox extension. However, it might suit your needs.

Health! Thank you for clarifying the situation, but this does not solve the problem. I've been using an alternative browser since the days of Netscape. His receiver was Firefox. I liked this browser because it was stable and responsive. I have thousands of notes in the description, which moved from version to version, from device to device. They were always at hand and available. Now, at the behest of some "wise man" I am deprived of all this. Exporting to html does not solve the problem, because This is a file that can not be edited, which is not assigned to the browser, and which can be lost. Why and why was the description field removed? To whom did it interfere? What alternative can firefox offer to once all be transferred to a new field, similar in functionality, and again enjoy the work of the browser? But for now there is no solution - you will have to remove these damn updates and install the old version of firefox, and then completely abandon this program. Can there be any extension for a browser with similar functions?

All the best. With respect.

Hi, please export your Bookmarks as HTML

The Notes are still there but invisible. Once Exported you can drag and drop into any browser window to view (not pretty though).

Please see here : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1232448

This can be used as a replacement but no idea of it's future : https://testpilot.firefox.com/experiments/notes

Someone has already made a extension : https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/bookmark-notes/

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

Hi Sergey_2018, at the risk of repeating part of what has been written, I hope this may answer part of your follow-up questions.

As you discovered, Firefox 62 no longer shows the "Description" field for bookmarks. The data is still available on your system, but can't be viewed within Firefox. It is planned to be removed in Firefox 64.

These may be rough for the first few weeks/months as user concerns are addressed and you may want to consider extensions that associate notes with their own list of sites rather than necessarily tying them to bookmarked addresses.

I don't have any recommendations at the moment.

Health! Thank you. Got a lot of new and useful information on your links and I see that I'm not alone. However, none of them solve the problem of descriptions transparently - they all have crutches and their future is in question. Firefox is a global and long-term project, all third-party solutions are private initiative (I wanted - support, did not want - abandoned the project). In addition, the authors of the extensions should constantly monitor changes in firefox and adapt the extensions to the new trends of firefox. And the examples that many useful extensions are abandoned are not supported in new versions and are not updated by the authors - a huge amount. At this point, I decided on the following: - I made a backup of the bookmarks in the form of html and json. - Installed Firefox version 61.0.2 and banned updates. - Installed the browser Tor Browser Bundle (https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en) for testing. - installed the Waterfox browser (http://waterfoxproject.org) for testing. (these browsers showed in the bookmarks all my descriptions) - I plan to install the extension for Firefox Bookmark Notes (https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/bookmark-notes/) on the PC where I have not yet rolled back to 61.0.2, and see how this extension will be work. But I repeat - it's less reliable in terms of support than the built-in function in firefox.

The authors of firefox probably do not know the saying: the best is the enemy of the good. Or someone in the firefox team decided to destroy the browser in favor of IE and the like.

HI, Since Firefox Volunteer have no say or most of the time something like this is happening we are thrown into the works just like you to find solutions and alternatives.

We try. Waterfox is based on Firefox Extended Release Version and as far as Security is 2 versions back from the comparable Firefox Release.

They person was quick out of the gun to make a replacement Extension and no idea of his reputation nor permissions wanted so the Firefox Notes is a good idea. Always work with a copy.


My Bookmarks are from Windows 95 days and preserved by emailing them to my self and sticking on all partions made and now on flash drive as well. Copies everywhere.

Hi Sergey_2018, at the risk of repeating part of what has been written, I hope this may answer part of your follow-up questions. As you discovered, Firefox 62 no longer shows the "Description" field for bookmarks. The data is still available on your system, but can't be viewed within Firefox. It is planned to be removed in Firefox 64. To access and archive that data now, you can: Export Bookmarks to a locally saved Web Page (HTML File) Please see this article: Export Firefox bookmarks to an HTML file to back up or transfer bookmarks. That creates a web page, so you can open it in a Firefox tab, or in any browser. You'll notice the descriptions nested below the linked titles of the bookmarks that have descriptions.

Next steps:

This will depend on your needs.

(A) If you just need to consult the existing descriptions: the HTML file may be good enough.

(B) If you need to occasionally update the descriptions, but don't need them within Firefox: you could consider using a reference program such as Zotero (more info below) to store your bookmarks and descriptions.

(C) If you need to access descriptions within Firefox, but it's not essential that they be properties of your bookmarks: you could investigate new extensions. These may be rough for the first few weeks/months as user concerns are addressed and you may want to consider extensions that associate notes with their own list of sites rather than necessarily tying them to bookmarked addresses.

I don't have any recommendations at the moment.

(D) If you can't live without descriptions integrated with your bookmarks: you may consider the Extended Support Release of Firefox 60, also known as ESR. The ESR track was designed for companies that only want feature changes on an infrequent basis. So Firefox 60 ESR will only get security updates for the next 10-12 months, staying stable with the features of Firefox 60. Then ESR will jump to a new version, expected to be Firefox 68. We don't know what Firefox 68 will look like; it might not have descriptions, either.

More info on this option: Switch to Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) for personal use.


Migrating Bookmarks to Zotero

There are a number of tools you could use to manage notes and annotations on your bookmarks. This is one of them.

Zotero is an open source bibliographic/research tool for collecting references. Zotero knows how to read a Firefox HTML bookmarks file and will preserve the descriptions. You can keep your storage purely local, or you can optionally sync with the Zotero cloud.

This is a one-way trip: you can send new references to Zotero from within Firefox using a Zotero add-on, but you won't be able to read/edit bookmark descriptions from within Firefox.

If you want to try it:

The Zotero research tool is available for Mac, Windows, and Linux from https://www.zotero.org/

When you click an item in your bookmarks collection, Zotero displays the Title, URL, and "Abstract" which contains the imported Description. (Screenshot #1) Double-clicking the item will launch the page in the default browser.

Zotero also has an optional Firefox Connector webextension, which allow saving new pages to a Zotero collection (either under the bookmarks structure, or other folders the user created in Zotero). (Screenshot #2)

(I didn't look at cloud sync.)

Using a second program is less convenient than using Firefox features or a fully self-contained Firefox extension. However, it might suit your needs.

Health!

I am grateful for the detailed approach to the problem, but this does not solve the very problem: + Zotero has a cloud storage that will allow you to synchronize data between different devices. + - this is an option, but it is very inconvenient and the prospect of its lengthening is unknown (the author at any time can abandon the project). - this is another program for which you need to follow.

In the corporate version of Firefox 60 and 68 is likely a lot unnecessary for the private user, again the unknown version of the promising version of firefox 68. You can try, but it would be better to listen to the usual firefox users and return the description field in the bookmarks.

You see, it's impossible to pile up PCs with various small utilities to infinity. On the one hand, it is universal, on the other hand - it is very inconvenient. At any time, some of the programs may stop being supported by the author, and at the same time do not have the means to convert and archive the data. Many small utilities may be interesting for people who are constantly looking for something new, often change programs and so on, but it's absolutely inconvenient for people who want stability.

I'll try Zotero, but something tells me that I will not use it and then delete it.

All the best. With respect.

Copies, copies, copies - I try to get away from copies in favor of the automatic synchronization system. I'm tired of a dozen devices to maintain the urgency of copies in a manual mode - maybe just getting old and lazy, and the memory is not the same.

My bookmarks with Netscape, then SeaMonkey, and then Firefox which I used on OS / 2 Warp 3.0, then moved to OS / 2 Merlin 4.0 and eCS from 1995 to 2007. And now, by going to Windows and using firefox for windows, for the sake of evil, I lose the ability to use the descriptions. Windows itself is one great universal evil.

Firefox Notes is "Notes by Firefox" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mozilla.testpilot.notes) or something else?

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bookmark-notes/ That extension works with Firefox Bookmarks. Uses a Sidebar display of bookmarks where the user clicks on a bookmark to see the "Note" for that bookmark. Unfortunately the developer of that extension is still working on the Import feature; currently saved Description data isn't available for use right now. The developer does have all of Firefox 62 & Fx 63 to add that Import feature; Firefox 64 is slated for when that Description data is to be removed from Firefox. Support for Bookmark Notes is rendered here by that developer: https://github.com/emmyemi/bookmark-notes/issues You can see that that an "Import" feature is planned for a version 1.1 of Bookmark Notes.

https://testpilot.firefox.com/experiments/notes Has no connection with Firefox bookmarks. IMO, more like a "to-do list" or a grocery list app.

Overall, Zotero and Bookmark Notes do seem to be the best way to proceed at this time; although until Bookmark Notes has an Import feature I would wait for that feature to arrive. But I only have maybe 10 notes saved in the Description field, so this situation really hasn't affected my use of Firefox too badly.

Health!

I installed it on the android - it says that it is synchronized, but there is not a single note. True, I have not installed on android firefox - I almost do not go to the Internet from the phone, tk. the screen is small, look uncomfortable.

But on the PC itself, the firefox test pilot did not install. Rather, I installed it, and it seemed to me that this is the most common version of 62.0, so I deleted it and returned it to 61.0.2.

It turns out that this is an ordinary cloud notebook, only tied to a specific browser or what. Something I do not understand his appointment and how he works ... :(

How is the problem solved, if Firefox 62.0 does not show the description? No, the problem is not solved. In this dialog are simply given options to save and use later descriptions, without binding to the browser.

I watched the movie "Get Shorty" in 1995? There John Travolta, in the role of Chili Palmer orders "Cadillac", and he is sent a hybrid and assure that he is not worse.

I realized - the advertising of the firefox browser, saying that this is an independent browser for users and for the sake of users, just an advertisement that has nothing to do with reality. Those. another lie of the system in the mountain of lies and deceit of the layman.

Now, when I slightly tried the options in action, I can already say that the problem has moved a little (I did not dare) to step on my favorite mazol ceased. But this is all just a decision for a year, and then no one knows what will happen - maybe esr, tor and waterfox will also lose their descriptions. So one hope remains for the extension and its tight integration with the usual Firefox, but with its database, and maybe, if you like, on the zotero.
