The latest update to Firefox trashed creating Bookmarks!!!

Instead of given an option on where to file a new bookmark -- as it had for years -- it places in the last location selected and closes the dialogue box.

To fix things require Editing the Bookmark to save a new Bookmark where desired.

Update prior to this one created problems with background colors and spacing's, now another update trashes to Bookmark function...

Is someone from Google of Microsoft trashing Firefox intentionally?... or is just someone who doesn't know what they are doing or care?

Chosen solution

The "Edit This Bookmark" dialog that opens if you click the highlighted star has a checkbox with "Show editor when saving" (shortcut key in the dialog is Alt+S). This item is at the bottom just above "Remove Bookmark" and "Done". You can click the highlighted star a second time to open the "Edit This Bookmark" dialog.

Thank you!...

But why do / should existing settings change -- unrequested -- with an update?
