Save bookmarks does not work in FF 64.0b6

Posted

All of a sudden, I cannot save bookmarks. I'm running FF on a Retina MacBookPro, 15", Late 2013, 2 GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, OS X 10.14. I did all the steps here <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems#w_disable-all-extensions> and they did not fix the problem. I have downloaded a fresh copy of FF as well. That did not help either.

Help!

Please can you define what you mean by "Do not bookmark"?

How are you bookmarking these (as in, what actions do you take, what do you see)? When do you realise they aren't bookmarked?

Have you tried running the integrity check as suggested by cor-el?

If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history) in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use "Verify Integrity" on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page
    in case errors are reported close and restart Firefox and retry

See also:

If "Verify Integrity" on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page cannot repair places.sqlite then remove all places.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

Hi Standard8:

Thanks. When I did the Verify Integrity, I got the ability to bookmark back.

What I meant by "Do not bookmark" was that when I pressed CMD-D, nothing happened. I did not get an "Edit this bookmark" dialogue appearing.

The problem is back. Here's the Verify Integrity output. Any clues here?

Sorry for the delay, I've been ill this week.

"database disk image is malformed" means there's something wrong with the database and can't read it. Most likely something has caused corruption.

Firefox does its best to recover from it, but the fundamental reason needs to be looked at.

Do you know if you've been having any hard drive issues? or maybe crashes?

I hope you're feeling better now.

No, no "hard drive" crashes, as I have an SSD installed. I can print out a full system report and send it to you privately if you wish.

Update: I've now upgraded to 64.0b9 and bookmarking (CMD-D) is working again. Why don't we just wait a bit and see if things continue to work? If so, we can close the conversation.
