Two days ago "Bookmark this Page" stopped working. I cannot bookmark any webpages anymore - and it's not like I haven't been using Firefox for years and years. I know how to bookmark & also how to sort bookmarks into my bookmark toolbar. But for no reason that I can find, bookmark no longer works. Period. I click on the "Bookmark This Page" line and nothing happens. What happened? HELP!!!!

Reset and upgrade your Firefox it will solve the issue

Reset Firefox was only part of the answer. I already had the latest version of Firefox, so upgrading was not part of the problem. I followed some instructions on this forum --

Before you start, export your bookmarks into a html file on your desktop just in case something goes wrong in the process below. To export bookmarks, click on Bookmarks on the Toolbar above. Click Show All Bookmarks. A window will open with a star and a drop down arrow at the top left (beside 2 other icons). Click the drop down arrow and you'll see an option for Export Bookmarks. Then:

1. Click Help on the Toolbar above. 2. Click Troubleshooting Information. 3. A Mozilla page will come up -- under the headed Application Basics, click on Show in Finder. 4. For me, a file with a random string of letters and number and a .default before a / and more numbers came up. Open the file. 5. Look for a folder called places.sqlite. Delete it.

Reset Firefox and voila my bookmarks were all there & I could bookmark again as usual.

Don't forget to export your bookmarks first and save them to a file on your desktop just in case!

Cheers -- Jan

What do you mean by "reset and upgrade" Firefox? I just had it automatically update two days ago and the thing is very unstable now. Today my "bookmark this page" capability disappeared.
