Can't add, move or edit Bookmarks

Posted

I switched to the ESR version in order to continue including user notes with each Bookmark (on the Notes tab). This feature was removed from the regular version of Firefox some time ago, and this has been an effective workaround.

Bookmarks are still working properly on my Windows 10 laptop running Firefox Quantum 60.4.0esr. However I loaded the same version on a newly-purchased Windows 10 laptop and I'm unable to add, move or edit Bookmarks - or add new folders on that device. I've tried every solution suggested on this site, to no avail (refresh; try Safe Mode; edit my Profile Folder; reboot; uninstall and reinstall Firefox; etc).

Today I tried upgrading to Firefox Quantum 60.5.0esr and the problem persists. I can no longer use Bookmarks at all.

I don't understand why Mozilla keeps implementing changes that stop Bookmarks from functioning properly. The main reason I've always used and supported Mozilla browsers (starting with Netscape Navigator!) is the superior Bookmarks feature.

PLEASE FIX BOOKMARKS, AND DON'T MAKE ANY FURTHER CHANGES!

Hi,

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.

What version of Firefox did you start with? With the latest versions, some data files were changed making them not backward compatible.

Are you having any other problems with other files?

One option is to use sync. You could also save the bookmarks in the old program and create an HTML file to import to the new browser.
