If I set the Menu + Desktop Site toggle, then select a bookmark, the Desktop Site toggle is ignored, and reset.

This makes it impossible to load a bookmark targeted for a desktop site.

Thanks in advance for your attention to this oversight.

I am trying out bookmarklet functionality on a mobile platform (Android 10). The bookmarklet is named test and points to the code

javascript:alert('boo')

How I test:

  1. Save the bookmarklet as described above to the bookmarks folder;
  2. Go to some random website;
  3. In the address bar, start typing test;
  4. The browser will recognize the bookmark and offer it in a menu;
  5. Click it.

Results:

  • In Brave for Android (Chrome-based) the alert window appears as expected;
  • In Firefox for Android absolutely nothing happens.

Question:

Is this intentional on Mozilla's part and/or expected or am I missing something?

Hi,

As far as I know, I have been using sync option for my bookmarks for almost 6 years or so, and I used them in multiple devices (smartphones). Now, I don't have the other devices and also I lost all my important bookmarks and their passwords.

I reinstalled it now, and don't have my stuff. 

I request you to please do the needful.

Regards,

Ravooru Kalyan Kumar.

I read this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-delete-and-view-bookmarked-webpages-firefox-an , but I don't seem to have a bookmark option (seen in attached screenshot). Is there a setting or something that would disable the option? I'm a little new to firefox for android.
