When I bookmark something, I often apply tags. I have noticed that when I use a very long tag, combined with many tags, it prevents tags being used. For example, the word "internationalization" prevents tags being stored.

A bookmark that is tagged like this: one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen internationalization will not have its tags saved.

However, this is stored successfully: one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen internationalization

This also stores successfully: 'one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen'

I have a number of bookmarked pages. When I open a new window and then select the bookmarked page i want to open, FF switches tyo another ALREADY OPEN TAB and loads the page there removing the page that was opened. EX: I use both regular FF and Private windows on my screen and switch from one to the other according to the loaded pages I am using. When I open a new tab in private windows and try to get FF to open a bookmarked page, it will switch to my open tabs under regular FF instead of opening the bookmarked page in the new private windows page it will REPLACE an open page. This happens a lot with my YouTube pages which I leave open during the day to listen to binaural beat music in the background while I am working. What's up with that? Why doesn't the bookmarked page open in a new private windows tab?

I also noticed that when I leave pages open during the day in both private and regular FF now (since the most recent update)and go back to them, I often have to reload the whole page instead of just allowing me to go directly to something on that page.

I have been dodging the most recent updates because with each new update there seems to be more and more CONTROL from your side, and less freedom on our side of the screen. Is this purposeful? If so, WHY?!!!

Hi, I am asking for your help in addition to your patience as I am not a tech savvy person AT ALL.

That being said, Firefox installed a new version of the browser last night as it has done many times over the years I have used their browser. Nothing looked different until I wanted to bookmark a website.

When I click on bookmarks, it use to have the option which said (I think) "bookmark this page" which is how I have always saved pages. That option is no longer there, it is gone. I do not make changes on this computer on my own. I do not know what I'm doing and have no one to help so if I were to mess something up, I'm in trouble.

I did read through posts before asking for help, went to the help section Firefox has. I went to the page which says Troubleshoot & diagnose Firefox problems. As I went through each step, nothing changed so I reinstalled Firefox. Obviously it did not change the issue I am having.

I am very careful when I get online; I don't click on links, pop up ads, etc. ever! Is there anyone who can help as I do not know what to do, and again, have no one I can ask or go to for help. I am attaching a screenshot which gives the info on the version of FF I have. I thank you all for your time and am keeping my fingers crossed this is a simple fix!

Hello, On May 14th 2021 an update occurred. I had no warning and I lost most of my computer settings as well all my Firefox bookmarks. I didn't manually backup my bookmarks lately so I thought I could retrieve them in the Windows.old file but there is no such file on my computer. If Firefow was also updated, why there hasn't been creation of a bookmarkbackup? Is there a way to recover my bookmarks? Thanks for your help. CLC

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?

This morning after no noticeable change to my computer, the bookmarks are missing from Firefox. I thought it might be after last update, but that was a week ago (I think) and I didn't have this issue until after the weekend (computer on but not used, system did not restart). The bookmark backups are listed but i get the following error when trying to load them:

"Unable to process the backup file."

I have found the file location, but even trying to do it manually gives the same error.

Is this a bug from the new update?

I REALLY dislike the new bookmark pull-down feature, which has larger fonts and far too much space between bookmarks. Now I have to scroll (for which I can't use the mouse) to get to the bottom of a long bookmark list. I prefer older versions.

How may I change the appearance of this feature?
