Hello, I've noticed a change since the last update and don't understand why?

When opening the bookmarks tab I would get the drop down of a long list of links I have saved. I sometimes bunch them into groups so when looking down the long list, I can see the link I want better when more than one are from the same website.

But my issue is that when I went through the list and found that group of links, I could click onto one to open the page. In the past before the update I could click on the bookmarks drop down again, and still see the same area of links I had just clicked on.

Now when the bookmarks drop down closes it defaults to the top of the list and I need to scan down to find the links I was looking at again. Why? Yes when I closed the browser off and reopened it the bookmarks list would start at the top again. But if left opened I could click on the bookmarks tab and it would open to the same link area I clicked onto last.

Is there a way in settings I can reverse this annoying, unnecessary change.

A word to the Firefox workers that like changing things for no reason. I use Firefox because I like the things your browser has that the others don't. Keep taking the little things away that people like, which you seem to keep doing, then my favourite browser will just become "The same old s#*@" like all the others.

Why are bookmark folders resetting to the top each time they're used? Instead of the folder holding it's place, it now goes back to the top of the folder. So if I used a bookmark that was midway down a folder, and I want to use the bookmark directly below it next, I have to scroll down the folder back to it, instead of the folder holding its place. Why? And how can I make it stop? Thanks.

I've recently updated to version 110.0, and I immediately noticed an issue with my bookmarks where my scroll position in the bookmarks list isn't being saved after opening a tab or two. It keeps resetting back to the top of the list after a few seconds.

I don't know if this is a bug resulting from the latest update or what, but I know I didn't have this issue with bookmarks prior to updating to 110.0.

Like the title states - now have to scroll back down through all the bookmarks in a folder because it no longer holds its place. This is a great time waster.

Thought I would try to save some time by opening bookmarks in new tabs, but it then switches to the new tab immediately and I still have to scroll back through the same folder to open the next bookmark.

Is there a fix for this issue?

Starting today, for some reason when I access my bookmarks, I have to start from the very top of all my lists of bookmarks. In the past when I accessed a bookmark, and then a clicked on the bookmark tab to access ANOTHER bookmark, my bookmark list would show where I had left off from the previous bookmark within that list. Now when I access a another bookmark after I had accessed a previous bookmark, my bookmark list starts from the very top of it instead of where I was previously within that bookmark list. Being I have many bookmarks, it is a real pain to have to constantly scroll down from the top of my bookmark list every time to access another bookmark. This peculiar situation just started today. In the past this would NOT happen when I accessed my bookmarks. Can someone please explain and help me? Thank you.

Hi Since the latest update of Firefox, if I am clicking on a bookmark at the bottom of my bookmarks list, when I then access the bookmarks list again the bookmarks list always returns to the top, so I have to scroll down again to the bottom, as my bookmarks list is quite long. It never did this before and would always remain at the same point in the bookmarks list when I opened them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Have to keep scrolling bookmarks folders from the top instead of being able to pick up where I left off LIKE IT USED TO BE.

Also, instead of being able to right click and open bookmarks in new tabs to try and speed things up, it immediately switches to the new tab, which means having to scroll from the top of the folder AGAIN anyway. And yes, I'm well aware of the "switch to it immediately" option in the settings menu, and that box is UNCHECKED in my settings.

I'm not the only one complaining about this time waster, yet no replies from support on any of the threads.

Hello everyone,

Prior to this 110.0 release, every time I would access my Bookmarks menu, it would remember where in the list I last left off, and I could return to that section of the list next time. Now, if I go all the way to the bottom of my Bookmark list, next time FF returns me to the top of the list, and I have to scroll down again. Anyone know how to fix?

For the first time this morning I discovered the following issue: I have a big list of sweepstakes bookmarks with a bookmark folder hierarchy, and Firefox does not remember the last view position of the bookmark side panel scroll bar. As a result, I have to scroll down and manually search the position myself. I expect Firefox to display everything as it was at the time it was last closed. Your help will be extremely appreciated. Microsoft Edge has been wanting me to make the switch, but besides the learning curve, I've been using Firefox for a number of years now, and would like to continue doing so. By the way, I believe the latest Mozilla Firefox update may have been the cause.

I just updated to Firefox 110.0 and now I'm having a problem with my bookmarks. Previously, if I selected a bookmark website that was...say, half way down my list of bookmarks, the next time I went to my bookmarks it would start where I last left it (or in this example, half way down the list). Now, whenever I go to my bookmark list, it ALWAYS starts back at the top and I have to scroll down to get to where I last was. I have a tendency to bookmark multiple sites for me to go back to and check out but now I have to scroll through ALL of my bookmarks to get to the bottom to pull the site up...check it out and see if there is any useful info there, then go to the next site. Now I have to scroll all the way from the top again to get to the bottom (or wherever I was last). Is there a way to make the bookmarks default to how they used to be (starting when you return to the last bookmark you left off at)?

Starting yesterday, for some reason when I access my bookmarks, I have to start from the very top of all my lists of bookmarks. In the past when I accessed a bookmark, and then a clicked on the bookmark tab to access ANOTHER bookmark, my bookmark list would show where I had left off from the previous bookmark within that list.

Now when I access a another bookmark after I had accessed a previous bookmark, my bookmark list starts from the very top of it instead of where I was previously within that bookmark list. Being I have many bookmarks, (100's) it is a real pain to have to constantly scroll down from the top of my bookmark list every time to access another bookmark. I didn't have to do this previously. When I accessed bookmarks AFTER I accessed a given bookmark, the bookmark list stayed where I was previously located within my bookmark list. This made it easy to access my next bookmark selection! It sure is handy being all the hundreds of bookmarks I have, to have the list not ALWAYS revert back to the top of my bookmark list every time I want to find a bookmark!

This peculiar situation just started yesterday. In the past this would NOT happen when I accessed my bookmarks.

Looking at the bookmark manager and bookmark library I don't see options the change how the bookmark list is presented? 

Can someone please help me and explain how do get back my old bookmark list actuation process? Thank you.

Ever since Firefox went to version 110, when I click on a bookmark to open it that is in the middle of the alphabetized list like starting with the letter 'G', it takes me to the page, but if I want to go to the next bookmark down in alphabetical order Firefox goes back to the letter 'A' at the top of the list making me scroll all the back down to 'G" again. When you have 200 or more bookmarks, this can be frustrating. Is there a way to fix? Thanks.

I've noticed that every time I open a new tab and go to open my little Bookmark menu with the Star icon for the toolbar, the drop down menu will automatically be scrolled to the very top of the menu, where previously it would stay in the same place as before across all tabs. Is there a way to disable the menu from going back to the top for multiple tabs?

This just started this week but I have hundreds of twitter bookmarks in my twitter bookmark folder and so when I go lower in the folder and open one and go back to the folder it is at the very top bookmark of the folder again. As you can guess this is very annoying because I have to scroll for a while to get back the bookmarks I was at towards the bottom of the folder. I updated Windows and Nvidia graphics driver. I used CCleaner to clean junk out of my system. I have the latest Firefox browser as well. This has never been a problem so far and I can't find a solution anywhere for this. Can anyone help?

Firefox Bookmarks On-Screen List

Firefox 110.0 (64-bit) (recent update from Firefox 109.0.1) Dell XPS desktop computer -NO CHANGE- Windows 8.1 -NO CHANGE- Other hardware and software -NO CHANGE- … (read more)

  • Firefox 110.0 (64-bit) (recent update from Firefox 109.0.1)
  • Dell XPS desktop computer -NO CHANGE-
  • Windows 8.1 -NO CHANGE-
  • Other hardware and software -NO CHANGE-

From the Menu Bar, clicking the "Bookmarks" tab causes Firefox to list my bookmark folders and individual bookmarks along the left side of my screen. -NO CHANGE-

My list of saved bookmarks is large, and extends below the PC screen. I must therefore initially scroll to the bookmark I am interested in. I group bookmarks and frequently want to go to grouped bookmarks, one after the other. -NO CHANGE-

In previous Firefox versions (say 109.0.1), when I first scrolled down and selected a bookmark and went to that website, the NEXT time I clicked on the Bookmarks tab, the list would be at the last bookmark selected. (See Figure 1.) -PREVIOUS BEHAVIOR-

Now, with Firefox 110.0, the list of bookmarks always starts at the top (see Figure 2), meaning I have to manually scroll all the way down to the bookmark(s) I am interested in every time. -CHANGE-

This is inconvenient and annoying.

Is there a setting to control this behavior? If not, I am going to remove Firefox 110.0 and re-install 109.0.1 (if possible). (Please do NOT tell me this is the fault of using Windows 8.1. That excuse would be unacceptable.)
