All of the sudden, I could not find any categories in which to place articles for storage. Only the tool bar menu and one other was available. I have a multitude of folders where did they go? They are, still, there when I go to find all bookmarks, but they are not there when I want to place an article in them. What happened and how do I fix this problem?

There used to be an option when bookmarking a page called "Bookmark Bar". This was in addition to the current "Bookmark Toolbar" option. I now don't have that option, however I still see my old "Bookmark Bar" items. Is this option gone with the latest update. If so, how can I easily move all of my bookmarks from the old "bookmark bar" list to the new current option.

I am attaching a screenshot to show where I used to see this option called bookmark bar.

I SO MUCH preferred the old way of bookmarking a web page!!! This new bookmarking tool brings up a HUGE popup,TWICE THE SIZE OF THE OLD ONE !!! -- and the new one actually covers up some of the information I want to type into the book mark name.

Further - and SO UNNECESSARY -- inside the bookmark creating pop-up there is a THUMBNAIL of the actual page I am looking at!!! This is ridiculous. If it was not there, I could see what I need/want on the page underneath.

Is there some way to go back to the OLD procedure that had just a couple of lines in a small pop-up? I am sure I am not the only one who would like to do this. Thank you for any assistance !!!

Firefox 63.0 Please tell me what’s up with the new Bookmark function? (Ctrl D) It doesn’t show all the old folders and is difficult to make new folders. And what/where is the “library”? And who cares? The old version worked just fine. I wish every time one of you techies come back from the bathroom with some new idea that you’d just keep it to yourself! Obfuscation and more clicks is NOT GOOD PROGRAMING!!! Also – screen popup does not adjust to screen on laptop – “done” button hidden behind taskbar. And the graphics/info space on top (of the bookmark save dropdown Ctrl D) is wasted and not useful and takes up too much space/real estate.

I have found the bookmark feature much different when I went to Firefox 62.0. Maybe it happen earlier, but that is when I noticed. The old method was much more intuitive. I have figured out the new method by clicking on choose which then opened up my folders , but why change something that has been in place for decades? People are use to seeing their folders without clicking on choose. Now I will get a half dozen others asking me about bookmarks. I would at least thought somewhere there was a fact sheet with warning of basic operational changes without a whole lot of detail technical jargon that most users wouldn't understand or care about. Then what purpose did that change make to the overall functionally? If none, it shouldn't have been made.

Thanks, I feel better now.

In one of the recent Firefox updates, the "New Bookmark" panel that appears when you click the star on the location bar seems to have got a new "preview" feature that shows a snippet of the website. Fancy, but it takes valuable screen space. Especially after expanding the folder menu; then the whole bottom part with the "done" button goes invisible if you have a smallish screen.

Is there a way to turn off the preview feature (through about:config perhaps)?

Hi All,

Don't know how or when it changed, but the "line spacing" of the entries in my bookmarks library window have changed. I would like the leading/line spacing smaller. I can live with it as is, but it was different before. See attached image for exact location.

I've already set up a userChrome.css file. Using FF 63.0 on a Mac.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Until the last few days, when bookmarking a page I was always offered the choice of where it should be stored.

Now, when I click "Bookmark this page" it saves it straight away and I must then go to "Edit this bookmark" to change its location.

Can anyone help with this please ?

Thank you.

After the last FireFox update, the additional folders that I have set up in the Bookmark drop box are all disabled and greyed out. You can access the website links that are already in the various folders, but you can not add any website links to them because they are no longer listed.

How can I enable these various folders again?

I don't know what changed, but in the last 2-3 days, when I bookmark a page, it automatically gets sent to the "Other Bookmarks" folder. IT DIDN'T USED TO DO THIS. Normally a small popup shows where I can specify the folder, bookmark name, and tags. Now I have to select command-D again, where it now says "Edit this bookmark", and change the location to where I wanted it in the first place. EXTREMELY ANNOYING.

I haven't done any FF updates, added any extensions, or messed with any system or css files.

Any thoughts on how this changed, or what I can do to fix? I briefly tried the "Default Bookmark Folder" add-on, but it doesn't help. Running FF 63.0.1 on a Mac

Thanks in advance

From reading others' questions I know I am not the only one who is truly aggravated by this change !!!

WHY, when bookmarking a page, can't we have an option to Show/ Not show the thumbnail of the SAME PAGE we are looking at ??? A repeat of the exact same page is a huge annoyance for me. I sure wish I could go back to the previous format, that appears when I click the star to bookmark a page.

I do a short edit to the title of most bookmarks I create. I arrange almost all of my dozens of bookmarks bookmarks by date/time. NOW, the new format HUGE BOX covers up information I need on the underlying page to edit the bookmark name !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! which means I have to remember date/time information , add it to the bookmark, click out of the bookmark to make sure I haven't made an error and then check the bookmark again to make sure what I added is correct. A HUGE time waster!!

PLEASE, PLEASE include an option to SHOW / NOT SHOW the thumbnail !!!!

Since I am trying to deposit the bookmarked page into a sub folder of the toolbar (Toolbar---Interesting Anime), I am surprised that it tells me that it has been saved in Libraries but not in the place I intended it to go. Do I have to change a setting some where to regain the previously operable method? Right click- bookmark- specify folder/file, ok.
