I used the TAG entries in my bookmarks to store various important site information, and after one of my recent upgrades, I went to one of my bookmark properties to review the data and discovered it was no longer there. I checked several other bookmarks for their tag information ALL of them had vanished! How can I get these entries back? I do not like the new formation for tag entries, since they are now showing up as selectable items in all of my tags. ARGH!!

Now there is no point in it anymore, why make a good browser terrible. Improvement are allowed but not at the expense of functionality, endless misunderstanding of this has made people move on, don't get rid of the stuff people get the software for

I had login info entered in the bookmark properties description field for numerous websites. It was a very convenient place to store this info. But yesterday I was utterly shocked to see that field was gone! But I noticed there is a Keyword field under bookmark properties. So, can I enter anything I want there?

Bjr, Sous XP, dans mes marques page, j'ai placé au fil des créations, dans les propriétés, des indices me permettant de retrouver chaque mot de passe associé à chaque site. Cela fonctionnait très bien.

J'ai sauvegardé mes marques-Pages sous windows XP (fichier .json). J'ai changé d'ordinateur. J'ai restauré mes marques pages sous Windows 10. J'ai récupéré tous mes marques page.

SAUF que je n'ai plus un seul indice me permettant de retrouver les mots de passe. Je sais qu'ils sont sur la sauvegarde puisque j'avais deja eu l'occasion de restaurer le barre personnelle avec une sauvegarde .json.

Comment faire sous Windows 10 pour récupérer les propriétés ?

D'avance, merci de votre aide. Cdlt, J Rufi

I have saved the information that was in my bookmarks properties as an html so the descriptions are now saved.

Why don't you just put the descriptions field back into firefox favorites properties. People use this field. Why would you feel compelled to remove it? Please just PUT IT BACK!!!!!

How do I contact the one who decides to make these rediculous decisions.

This is not really a question. I merely want to express my dissatisfaction with the removal of the "Description Box/Column" in the context menu under Properties for Firefox. I have been using Firefox exclusively since the "Windows 98 Days" because of THIS specific "back door" property. I have been a loyal, diehard user because no other prominent browser had this capability. Well, now there is no reason to remain a Firefox user. That's it.

Since description is removed from bookmarks properties, I want to capture my bookmarks to date as a readable document. I can then manually copy the identifying information and description to a spreadsheet before release 64. Is this capability available? I am a user, not a developer.
