I no longer get the "edit this bookmark" box when click on the gold star

Posted

Using Firefox 3.6.12 on Windows XP professional, version 5.1.2600 service pack 3, build 2600. Have "Unsorted Bookmarks Folder Menu" add-on installed, working fine, but 4 days ago clicking on the star icon to edit an existing bookmark stopped working. Hovering over the gold star still gives the pop up message "edit this bookmark" - but when I click on it, nothing happens, the edit bookmark box does not appear. Also, the "Options" button for the "Unsorted Bookmarks Folder Menu" add-on is greyed out, so no luck with trying to fix it from there.

Thanks for the quick reply ed. That has done the trick. I guess a recent update to Site Advisor has caused this issue. I'll have a play with the Site Advisor settings to see if there's any way to have it working without killing the "edit bookmark" function. -Much appreciated!

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).


If this doesn't help then please create a new thread and provide troubleshooting information like your operating system and installed extensions and installed plugins.
