bookmarks and firefox BROKEN..

Posted

when saving a bookmark firefox fails to save it. there are no properties to change as it looks corrupted. Opera, Brave, Safari, Chome all fine. dont ask me what version - you have hidden version info really well. I think its the latest but who knows??

Been using FF for about 13 years now. Seems like Firefox is broken? Why do I have to constantly revert to chrome or other browser TO GET ANYTHING DONE?

this 16Kb screen shot is taking forever to upload. whats up with FIREFOX????????

Hi markyg21, what about history? Can Firefox accumulate new history and/or can you delete history entries. If both bookmarks and history are broken, it can be a corrupted file problem. In that case, you'll need to roll up your sleeves and try the steps here:
