Hi ebntv, Thank you for your question, I understand that after a recent sync to your sync account that there are Recent Tags, descriptions and labels missing. However it is only the older Bookmarks that are affected.

I have attached two screenshots to clarify to make sure I understand the feature that is affected:

  1. The first has the default recent tags and list of all tags.
  2. the second is an older bookmark visited 32 times that has all of the details after a sync.(However it never had a description or keyword)

Which information is missing exactly?

Also I actually cannot find a way to add keywords in the new version, this may have been removed. Is there a way you are adding the descriptions and keywords back?

The Bookmark keywords feature is still working for me in Firefox 32; for the existing keywords from years past and with newly added keywords.

Any chance that Xmarks was used on that Firefox - currently or in the past, along with Sync? Xmarks tags preceded that feature being added to Firefox in 2008, and the two separate sets of tags codes aren't compatible - or so I have read over the years in this forum. As far as labels and descriptions being gone goes, I have no ideas other than a b0orked places.sqlite file.

I agree, the-edmeister has mentioned there is a function to add a keyword. This is where I found to add the field to the current new bookmark star icon: http://www.guidingtech.com/5941/add-keywords-bookmark-firefox-addres...
