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.

I want to find and display the location of a single bookmark in the entire bookmark folder. I can search my bookmarks using key words and display the bookmarks with the search terms. However, what I want to know is which bookmark folder the found bookmark is located in. Is there a way to identify that. Thanks.

I would like to add the Firefox homepage to my favorites list, but when I am on the page (get to it by clicking on the "home" button to the left of the address bar), the "star" button in the address bar is not there (usually would click on that to mark the page I am on to be bookmarked). The address bar does not show an address, so I can not add it manually. What is that address, or are there any suggestions about how I might get this done? Thank you from Linda.

When I first downloaded and installed Firefox the other day, the initial screen showed a process to import bookmarks from other browsers. I followed the process and imported bookmarks from Safari, but apparently not successful. I only see Mozilla Firefox bookmarks. I tried again from File tab but in vain... (using iMac (10.15.6))

It's rather frustrating that simple and basic functions not working from the very start... (keyboard shortcuts to control video streaming are not working either)

Can someone enlighten me as to what may be the issue?

Thank you.

Hi, I just refreshed Firefox on this site https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings because my browser was getting slower and recommended that to me with a little Pop-Up at the bottom of my screen. I first read through the whole page and it clearly says that I will not lose my booksmarks, but exactly that happened. I already read through most support articles, but they all mention a second profile in about:profiles but there is just one. The bookmark folder is empty in this profile. Does anyone know how I can get them back? Thanks

Hello!

When I add a bookmark, I often find myself in the situation that I would like to adjust the URL. Alas, this cannot be done in the pop-up dialog that appears when clicking on the star button in the address bar.

Then again, it's quite tedious to find that bookmark in the bookmarks library to edit the URL there.

Am I missing something here or is this a missing feature?

I purchased a new laptop. I exported bookmarks to an html file on my desktop and copied them to a thumb drive. I then copied them to my new laptop. I then imported the bookmarks into Firefox on the laptop. They were magically added to the bookmarks on my desktop. It took a long time to delete the extraneous bookmarks.

How do I avoid this?
