Why can I no longer use "favorites" since the last Firefox update????

Posted

I imported all my Favorites from Internet explorer when I first began using Firefox. I click on "favorites" and I get a complete list of all the URLs I use a lot. After the last update, the list no longer appears. I've reloaded the app and no joy. It still works if I quit firefox and use IE.

Alternately, you can import your IE Favorites into Firefox's Bookmarks system. However, if you plan to add new Favorites in IE, then they would not be the same between browsers, so perhaps that isn't the right approach for you.
