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 Quantum 62 (64 bit). The library was showing Bookmarks normally, when the cursor must have caught something as it moved across the screen. Now a large 'edit' pane appears in the bottom half of the screen (see image) and I cannot find any button or menu item to remove it. It is also there on the History and Download pages. How do I send it away, and what would have made it appear?

After Firefox updated to 65.0 it became terrible to use bookmarks. There are 3 ways to access them (sidebar, library->bookmarks, bookmarks item on toolbar), but all of them are inconvenient and time consuming. What was better in previous version? You only need to CTRL+B and choose one of the recent bookmarks which appeared on sidebar. But now to access recent bookmarks the shortest way is to go to library->bookmarks, which is more time-consuming. Another way to access, e.g. 15th recently bookmarked bookmark, is to go CTRL+B, expand "Other Bookmarks", and scroll whole list of bookmarks down. So why this list isn't sorted upside down by default to access recent bookmarks faster?

I have a lot of sites I check regularly and have them sorted in folders. I know the way to open a single bookmark without automatically switching to it, but when I open all the bookmarks in a folder, it automatically switches to the first bookmark in the folder. Is there any way to stop this from happening?

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.

Before Quantum, when I bookmarked a page, the bookmarks 'choose' would bring up a list to chose from. Such as 'menus', 'recipes', 'political', medical, 'computer' and a few others that I use the most. Now, it's only the basic Bookmarks toolbar', Toolbar Menu', 'Other toolbar' and 'Choose'. Now, when I click 'Choose', it only brings up 'Other bookmarks'. Below that, 'Folder'. I don't want to make a 'new' folder as I already have those folders in my bookmarks. I hope I'm explaining this OK and that someone can help me with this.

Please help.....

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?

Thank you........

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

Hi Guys,

I migrated my bookmarks over from one Firefox browser to a new machine. I have all the bookmarks saved in a Bookmarks toolbar folder and they are all there but I cannot figure out how to get them all out of the toolbar folder and on the bar individually?

At present they are in the folder on the toolbar space of the main browser. Previously I had a number of bookmarks showing across the browser and then the rest were listed below on the far right when you hover over it.

I would like to have it in that format again but cannot see how to do it! When I right click I get these options:

Open all in tabs New Bookmark New folder New separator Cut Copy Delete Sort by name Properties

I cannot see which would drag them all out nor can I use left click (showing them all) then right to drag them all out!

Hopefully someone can help sort this thanks.

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 !!!!
