Hi,

Now when i click the address bar at the top I'm met with a Blank Screen whereas before the update I had my Top Sites "pinned" for quick & easy access. I now have to faff around going into the bookmarks which is pointless when this feature was working perfectly well, why remove it?

Also when i start Firefox fresh i see small icons for the top sites but they're so small the URL/Name doesn't show up so i have no idea which icons lead to which sites. These need to be bigger like post update and put back line they were before.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. This update is a massive fail, please revert ASAP.

This morning I started Firefox (78) in Windows 10 Pro (10.0.18363) I got a red message saying that something was wrong with my Bookmarks and click here to fix Did that twice Tried to do a fix that removed and then reinstalled a couple of files (can't find the fix nor the files location) that didn't work although it did replace the files. Still no bookmarks I am logged into my Firefox and synch is on.

We now have both bookmarks and collections. Both seem to fill the same ecological niche, i.e. allow me to remember pages that I might want to visit again in the future.

What is the idea behind having both? When should you use bookmarks over collections? When should you use collections over booksmarks?

When I click Bookmarks in the menu bar, and let up on Bookmark this page, nothing happens. When I check my bookmarks nothing has been added. I am used to a popup window that allows me to choose which folder to put the new bookmark in. It no longer appears. I tried reinstalling Firefox and this did not help. What do I do to restore Bookmarking capability?
