In prior versions of Firefox, the Properties Box used to include a large text "Description" box where I could put login information and other details for that bookmark. Now, in version 62.0, that text box no longer exists. Old bookmarks that I have no longer have this information either.

I used this text box extensively and Firefox was the one browser that had this box. Now it appears to have been removed. Can I get this Description box back? Or do I switch to a different browser?

Thanks, Macbel

It seems that Mozilla has gotten rid of the DESCRIPTION window when you right click on a bookmark's properties. This was done in July for the Mac version of Firefox and with Ver. 62.0 for Windows.

No warning was given and there are a lot of complaints on the Mac version forum about this change. Again with Windows there was no warning that this MAJOR change was going to take place.

Like MANY other people I use the DESCRIPTION window to store extensive information about a given webpage. You can imagine my shock this morning when I went to retrieve some info and the window was gone. A little digging online found the complaint thread on the Mac change.

I have no idea why this was done. If it was for some security reason then it is understandable........the change that is, not t he way it was handled.

There are solutions given on the Mac thread on how to use another companies add-on to show the past saved descriptions. They are still in the Mozilla data files but are not shown in Ver. 62. You can also do an EXPORT to a .html file and then open the descriptions in the browser. Or you can reinstall Ver. 61.x from the archives and set it to NOT check for updates. This is what I did for the moment.

PLEASE bring back the DESCRIPTION window in bookmark properties. This is absolutely nuts to have to experience what I went through this morning sorting this all out.

It appears as if a recent Firefox update has done me in. My Bookmark file has somehow lost ALL the notes and descriptors that I had stored in the field below the Tags field that is associated with each file folder and URL. There were many of these and were important to me and ALL of them have disappeared within the last week (today is Sept7 2018).  ?????????????????? Secondly ever time I went to certain sites they automatically recognized me. This no longer happens and I have to sign in for that recognition. A great inconvenience. I do not save automatic ID and password savers which implies to me that somehow the cookies stored by these sites have been altered .

What happened ??? Is it yourproblem or mine??? How can I fix the issues???

I had very important notes for work and study in the description section of my bookmarks - as many others did as well, I'm sure - however, as of a recent Firefox update, I've lost the description section and all of my work (quotes from lengthy sources related to health matters, extremely important research for work-related projects, and personal notes on books, etc.). How does Firefox intend to compensate for these losses?

I wonder why this very important field is removed. I have over 10 years of information recorded in this field for reference. This seems completely unneccessary to remove it. At least, could you provide an import tools so that user can move those description into some other field in the bookmark?

I saw many people asked this question, and no solution works for me. By exporting the information to a html is not enough, because I need to manually handle over 10 years of description information, which is foolish.

This just changed with yesterday's update. Since forever I've used the Properties of items in my Bookmarks toolbar and in the bookmarks themselves to save other related info. LOTS of other related info. Now I see that when you right click on an item in the toolbar and select properties from the drop down it's totally changed and NONE of the previously stored info is there. This is a HUGE problem for me since I haven't backed up the bookmarks since Jun 2017. How can I get the info I had stored there back?

I lost quite a few bookmarks from the last 6-7 months in a couple of folders. There may be more but that's what I've noticed so far. I think this happened a few days ago when it was syncing. I have since uninstalled FF on my Android. I have back ups on both json and HTML. The question though is, do the back ups retain the "description" entered for each bookmark? That's important for me.

Needless to say, I'm confused and kinda livid.

Notice I didn't ask why IS it being removed. That's already been explained, and there appears to be virtually zero support among users for the removal of this feature. I have log-in information for almost a hundred websites stored in the Description Field in Bookmarks. I've been reading that many others do as well. Please understand that I appreciate volunteers taking the time to help users. That's why I first read the Bugzilla report on this "bug" but I could find no evidence of how this solution doesn't cause more harm than good. One reason for the feature's removal is that the extra coding needed to generate the Description Field is somehow burdensome on FireFox's efficiency. No evidence is given for this, although I don't doubt it may reduce efficiency by an imperceptible amount. Another claim is that very few people are taking advantage of the feature, while in the same breath admitting there was no way to actually know this!

I've used FireFox since its inception, and this is the first time I've felt compelled to find the secret handshake that takes me to the registration page so I could ask for support. I understood when, for example, Quantum broke my "DownThemAll!" extension. However, removing the Description Field feature appears to be a solution in search of a problem.

Right-clicking on a tab folder in Firefox and choosing "Properties", the usual requester does not show anymore the second text-window to add text comments; just and only the first/top text-strip where is possible to change the folder name. Everything worked fine until I rebooted my computer this afternoon. Check the attached screen-grab to better understand what I mean... (pretty annoying - an online search did not provided any useful result)

Waiting for your feedback/instructions...

Thanks,

p.s. It is a few minutes that I see the animated waiting image below "Uploaded images" but nothing happens. I'll post it anyway - hopefully you'll get my screen-grab anyway...
