Attempting to add a tag is not working, once I close the bookmark editor the tag just added is gone.

The feature where when you began to type the tag in the box and it gave you a drop down list has stopped working.

Attempting to add a tag while in the library to existing bookmarks: the tag vanishes.

Attempting to create a new tag: once you exit, the tag is gone.

I purchased a new laptop. I exported bookmarks to an html file on my desktop and copied them to a thumb drive. I then copied them to my new laptop. I then imported the bookmarks into Firefox on the laptop. They were magically added to the bookmarks on my desktop. It took a long time to delete the extraneous bookmarks.

How do I avoid this?

At one point I had a bookmark that took me to my bookmarks library, one that worked like any other webpage using a chrome:// link. Well I accidentally deleted it and now can't get it back. I've tried making a bookmark that goes to chrome://bookmarks and chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul, but neither work. All the other questions I've found about this are from 2013 or earlier.

Is it possible to restore favorites from a computer that was re-imaged? User doesn't know if they were ever logged into Firefox to use the sync feature. Of course this didn't come up until after the laptop was re-imaged so i'm not really holding my breathe. Any help would be appreciated.

Unfortunately, the bookmark remains?

Opening up Bookmarks and highlighting the bookmark and right click produces a menu, including DELETE. When deleted the bookmark remains?
