Description field in bookmarks has been deleted

Posted

After Firefox version 61.0.2, there is no description field. I use the description field to keep notes about websites, it is very valuable in fact critical to have and I can't use Firefox effectively without it; therefore have turned off updates. I have read the "fixes" but downloading bookmarks and keeping them separate from the browser is just not practical. I have been a Firefox user for many years and it has been great, much better than alternatives, however if the description field is not returned in a future update I shall be forced to use other browser. When will the description field be returned to Firefox bookmarks?

The description field was removed, and it won't be coming back. I don't believe any other browser has that either. I'd strongly suggest you find an alternative system, perhaps using the Firefox Notes project? https://testpilot.firefox.com/experiments/notes

Then, please update to Firefox 64. 61 is no longer supported and is insecure
