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.

In Firefox Mozilla, for years I could view my bookmarks by going to: menu bar>bookmarks>[a drop-down window of my bookmarks would display]. That drop down even showed new folders or categories I had created in my bookmarks menu. That drop-down no-longer shows. (How) can I make it show again?

Hi there, I re-installed my firefox with the latest 68.7.0esr which replaced the 75.0 version, and at the end of installation progress i was informed that I need to create a new profile to prevent my old history and bookmarks thing from being covered (actually I didn't see that thoroughly but I did click the " create the new profile" button), now I need to ask where my history and bookmarks are stored? I need to use them, thanks.

I had to do a Windows reset, which erases program data for Firefox along with the program. There was no way to export the pre-reset bookmarks into an HTML file that could be imported later. Firefox was freshly downloaded after the reset, likely the same version, but no bookmarks of course. I have the Profile folder from Firefox before the reset, and I can delete the new profile folder and paste in the old one, which of course has all my bookmarks. However, this has not worked so far. Should this method work? If so, are there any tips? If this paste-in method will not work, are there workarounds to solve the problem?

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.

Thank you, Colin
