PLEASE BRING BACK BOOKMARK DESCRIPTIONS! I would love to know the reason for removal? You think it is redundant, but its very important to many people. This removal could quite literally force me to use Google Chrome exclusively Not happy with my preferred browser right now!

I used to right click on a bookmark, then properties, but when the bookmark opens, the properties section is no longer there. I think that is what it was called when the properties box opened. It was an area at the bottom where you could put notes. I make notes on most all of my bookmarks and they are no longer showing. I disabled all my addons, I did a firefox 'refresh', and I tried working in safemode. The proplem still exists. Can anyone help? thanks! Kristi

It appears as if a recent Firefox update has done me in. My Bookmark file has somehow lost ALL the notes and descriptors that I had stored in the field below the Tags field that is associated with each file folder and URL. There were many of these and were important to me and ALL of them have disappeared within the last week (today is Sept7 2018).  ?????????????????? Secondly ever time I went to certain sites they automatically recognized me. This no longer happens and I have to sign in for that recognition. A great inconvenience. I do not save automatic ID and password savers which implies to me that somehow the cookies stored by these sites have been altered .

What happened ??? Is it yourproblem or mine??? How can I fix the issues???

I got no warning about the update that wiped out the information I had stored in the bottom panel of the bookmarks. I have lost a tremendous amount of valuable information. I load Firefox this AM only to discover the change.

Is there any way I can retrieve the bookmarks to recover the data?

This just changed with yesterday's update. Since forever I've used the Properties of items in my Bookmarks toolbar and in the bookmarks themselves to save other related info. LOTS of other related info. Now I see that when you right click on an item in the toolbar and select properties from the drop down it's totally changed and NONE of the previously stored info is there. This is a HUGE problem for me since I haven't backed up the bookmarks since Jun 2017. How can I get the info I had stored there back?

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.

Notice I didn't ask why IS it being removed. That's already been explained, and there appears to be virtually zero support among users for the removal of this feature. I have log-in information for almost a hundred websites stored in the Description Field in Bookmarks. I've been reading that many others do as well. Please understand that I appreciate volunteers taking the time to help users. That's why I first read the Bugzilla report on this "bug" but I could find no evidence of how this solution doesn't cause more harm than good. One reason for the feature's removal is that the extra coding needed to generate the Description Field is somehow burdensome on FireFox's efficiency. No evidence is given for this, although I don't doubt it may reduce efficiency by an imperceptible amount. Another claim is that very few people are taking advantage of the feature, while in the same breath admitting there was no way to actually know this!

I've used FireFox since its inception, and this is the first time I've felt compelled to find the secret handshake that takes me to the registration page so I could ask for support. I understood when, for example, Quantum broke my "DownThemAll!" extension. However, removing the Description Field feature appears to be a solution in search of a problem.

Right-clicking on a tab folder in Firefox and choosing "Properties", the usual requester does not show anymore the second text-window to add text comments; just and only the first/top text-strip where is possible to change the folder name. Everything worked fine until I rebooted my computer this afternoon. Check the attached screen-grab to better understand what I mean... (pretty annoying - an online search did not provided any useful result)

Waiting for your feedback/instructions...

Thanks,

Giorgio


p.s. It is a few minutes that I see the animated waiting image below "Uploaded images" but nothing happens. I'll post it anyway - hopefully you'll get my screen-grab anyway...

Can someone please either 1) change PROPERTIES back to how it was (preferred!) or 2) explain how to retrieve all the information [for each bookmark] I have been storing there for years?

It seems that Mozilla has gotten rid of the DESCRIPTION window when you right click on a bookmark's properties. This was done in July for the Mac version of Firefox and with Ver. 62.0 for Windows.

No warning was given and there are a lot of complaints on the Mac version forum about this change. Again with Windows there was no warning that this MAJOR change was going to take place.

Like MANY other people I use the DESCRIPTION window to store extensive information about a given webpage. You can imagine my shock this morning when I went to retrieve some info and the window was gone. A little digging online found the complaint thread on the Mac change.

I have no idea why this was done. If it was for some security reason then it is understandable........the change that is, not t he way it was handled.

There are solutions given on the Mac thread on how to use another companies add-on to show the past saved descriptions. They are still in the Mozilla data files but are not shown in Ver. 62. You can also do an EXPORT to a .html file and then open the descriptions in the browser. Or you can reinstall Ver. 61.x from the archives and set it to NOT check for updates. This is what I did for the moment.

PLEASE bring back the DESCRIPTION window in bookmark properties. This is absolutely nuts to have to experience what I went through this morning sorting this all out.

In prior versions of Firefox, the Properties Box used to include a large text "Description" box where I could put login information and other details for that bookmark. Now, in version 62.0, that text box no longer exists. Old bookmarks that I have no longer have this information either.

I used this text box extensively and Firefox was the one browser that had this box. Now it appears to have been removed. Can I get this Description box back? Or do I switch to a different browser?

Thanks, Macbel
