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.

I switched to Firefox a couple of years ago when Quantum came out. I'm satisfied with it but the main reason I keep using it is grounded on ethics rather than usability (which is fine for me but won't win the stone hearts of more cynical users :-) ). I had this sort of superficial opinion: "Chrome is better, but I don't want to use it." Today I wanted to give Chromium another try. I thought about what it is that makes it better and figured out it almost completely boils down to the star icon functionality: I'm a heavy bookmarks user and Firefox makes me slow, compared to Chrome.

First, it doesn't use the latest location in which I saved a bookmark as a default (this was also requested, not by me, on http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&p=14770920). I often add a row of pages to a single bookmarks folder, but rather than selecting the tabs and adding all of them at once by dragging and dropping as Firefox allows, I prefer to check them on by one: add one, close it, take a look at the one that follows, either close it right away or add it, and so on. In Chrome it's done with a couple of shortcuts in quick succession, in Firefox its much clunkier because one needs to set the directory every time.

Then a really annoying and sort of antiquated-feeling characteristic of Firefox's star icon menu and bookmarks sidebar is that type-ahead motion in it (when I type the first letters of the name I want to move to) breaks on spaces. This kind of motion is the only one that is practical once one has a few hundred directories, but if I have a list of directories like ... "The Rolling Stones", "The Who"... I can only match up to "The" then I'm on my own.

These flaws slow down the menial job of adding bookmarks a lot. Other things that could bring an improvement in my opinion would be an "Open in folder" context menu item for bookmarks search results, and the possibility to restrict searches to defined folders. I think what I've described should be done natively and not by extensions.

Keep up the good work and thanks for what you do.

I just installed Firefox 63.0 and discovered that the leading (inter-line space) between Bookmarks items has been increased.

Was this intentional? I find it an annoyance because I now have to scroll down more to see lists that easily fit on the screen vertically before. And the change adds nothing to readability.

firefox quantum 60.7.0 on windows 10. When I try to save a bookmark, the drop down list of folders only shows 5 folders. I have dozens. I tried to open it in safe mode (no addons), but the behavior is the same. I have not lost the bookmarks. when I click the bookmarks menu item, they are all still there.

thanks, Brian

Is there a way to fix the bookmarks in V62? They don't move properly when you try making it hard to arrange folders, etc..

I was previously on v. 57 I think. I upgraded to v. 62 and now the bookmarks don't work properly. If I try to rearrange them, they won't always move where I want them to. For instance, I have a folder and I want to move it two folder lower. I'll try to move it, and it'll stay right there. If I move the folder 8 spaces lower, then it'll move down one or two spaces. The same thing happens when I make separators, everything. Sometimes if I'm moving something from a lower position to a higher one it'll work correctly, sometimes. Moving from a higher position to lower seems to not work almost all of the time.

Okay, I just tried it again and it seems to be working for now. For the past two to three days it hasn't so I'll still post this to see if anyone has any help for if it starts up again.
