Hi, I'm not sure whether you mean:

If you have problems rearranging bookmarks on the Bookmarks Toolbar, could you test whether you can save a new bookmark? If not, please try:

(A) A normal shutdown and/or restart of your Mac. This is to free up locked files, complete any deferred updates, and resolve any temporary file permission issues.

(B) If Firefox still has bookmark problems, could you let us know what you get when you run the "Verify Integrity" diagnosis and repair function. That's here:

Open Firefox's Troubleshooting Information page using any of these methods:

  • "3-bar" menu button > Help > More Troubleshooting Information
  • (menu bar) Help > More Troubleshooting Information
  • type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter/Return

Near the bottom, there is a section titled Places Database -- that's the file which stores history and bookmarks. Click the button labeled Verify Integrity. There may be a 10-15 second delay before results appear.

If all is well, the report that appears below the button should start with:

> Task: checkIntegrity
+ The places.sqlite database is sane
+ The favicons.sqlite database is sane
> Task: invalidateCaches
+ The caches have been invalidated
> Task: checkCoherence
+ The database is coherent

(Then there will be statistics)

Does yours say that, or something else? You can select and copy the report, and then paste it into a reply for review and comment.

Also:

If you are not able to use drag-and-drop to change the order of bookmarks on the toolbar, you can try using the Bookmarks Sidebar (Command+B). If you expand the Bookmarks Toolbar category there, you can try dragging items up and down in the list. Does that work better?

Pinned tiles are stored in a pref on the about:config page named browser.newtabpage.pinned in an array of JSON format records ([{...},{...}]). If you are familiar with JSON format then you can edit its value and reorder {"key":"value"} pairs of each of the pinned tiles in the array . Entries that have the "null" value are filled by Firefox with history visits.

  • [null,{"url":"url1","label":"label1"},{"url":"url2","label":"label2"}]

If you close and restart Firefox then you should see the change on the the about:config page.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. On the warning page, you can click "Accept the Risk and Continue" to open about:config.
