When bookmarking a page it automatically saves but offers no options

Posted

Hi,

Until the last few days, when bookmarking a page I was always offered the choice of where it should be stored.

Now, when I click "Bookmark this page" it saves it straight away and I must then go to "Edit this bookmark" to change its location.

Can anyone help with this please ?

Thank you.

Hi, there is now an option for that to happen automatically in the dropdown, and you might have inadvertently clicked it, which is easy to do: You can either click the blue star as if to edit, then select the 'Show editor when saving' box. Or, type about:config into the address bar, press Enter, accept the warning, scroll down the alphabetical list to browser.bookmarks.editDialog.showForNewBookmarks and if 'Value' is False, double click it to change it to True.

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you!
