In Firefox Quantum version 69, each bookmark has :name, location, tags, and keyword; but no "description" section like previous editions. How can I access?

Posted

I much used the description section to: (1) write notes about particular articles of interest and links to related articles; (2) password hints for certain sites. And, whenever I imported my Firefox bookmarks to a different device, appreciated having my rather extensive and comprehensive descriptions collection at my finger tips. This was a special type of reference tool for me. When I changed the Firefox edition to the Quantum I was shocked and disappointed to discover that, after all these pass years of use thereof, the indispensable "description" section was not visible. Please, tell me if it is possible to remedy this problem? If it is a feature of Quantum to phase out the "description, then I will necessarily revert to using a different edition of Firefox that has the "description" section for each bookmark.

The "description" field was removed from the Firefox 62 bookmarks menu UI; the field remained 'hidden' until Firefox 64 (iirc) went that annotation field disappeared altogether.
