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.

New versions of Firefox regularly break things. Whether it's Netflix/Stan/Pronto or other streaming services, add-ons, re-invent the UI, some websites just stop working properly with the newer version or a number of other things.

I have 10 PCs here. We are using 55.0.3 because it was the last version with a UI that we were all familiar with, worked with all the services we use, supported all the add-ons and more. It's very outdated but I want to keep all PCs on a known working environment.

So I'm currently testing 61.0.2 (Not 62.0 because it's a zero release, which always have issues). I've managed to find solutions for most annoyances regarding add ons and using Photon-Australis to get back the curved tabs (The square look is just plain disgusting). I've got the reload icon back in the address bar, and hidden the 3 dots with a 30 second timeout so I will likely never have to be annoyed by it. I've got rid of the wasted spaces on the address bar too.

I use a space theme (Earth from space). It uses a cyan font. On the white tabs it's all but invisible. Using the dark theme fixes that, but I'd like to have the tabs the same color as the background of the address bar as in v55. Reading through the userchrome.css file I just get lost.

The other thing I'd like to preserve are the icons for home, download and bookmarks, Is there a way to preserve the icons that are used in v55 rather than the uglier ones use in v61?

I'm sorry for coming across so negatively, it' just I don't get why developers keep changing UIs that are working. Change for the sake of change, which just adds frustration. Firefox is not the only program. Windows is probably the worst. So please don't be offended.

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.

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.

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

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.
