Bookmarks organisation resets to unsorted regularly

Hello Firefox Community,

I've been a long-time fan of Firefox's bookmarks management system, but over the past year, I've encountered a persistent issue that's affecting my productivity. I regularly use the bookmark bar and organize my bookmarks into folders. However, any changes I make don't seem to stick and get reset after a period of time. This is especially frustrating as I heavily rely on bookmarks to keep my browsing organized. Problem Details

Here's what typically happens:

  1. I add a bookmark to a specific folder or position, either in the general list of bookmarks or on the bookmark toolbar.
  2. Sometime later, that bookmark leaves its designated position and moves to the bottom of the unsorted list of bookmarks.

Devices and Operating Systems

  • MacBook M1 2020 running macOS Monterey
  • Dell Alienware 17 r5 running Windows 10

Both devices have the latest version of Firefox installed, and I use Firefox Sync to keep my bookmarks and settings consistent across these devices. Suspicion

I suspect that this issue occurs when I make a change to bookmarks on one computer and then open Firefox on the other computer. The bookmarks seem to reset, possibly due to some issue with Firefox Sync.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and possible solutions!

Kind regards,

This is likely a problem with the "Default Bookmark Folder" extension that you appear to have installed and this can happen when Firefox updates. The extension hasn't been updated for a few years, so it looks that its creator has abandoned it.
