when attempting to bookmark using my tags list, typing the initial letter in the box results in a bookmark in the first tag displayed and not my desired one.

Posted

Recently encountered a problem bookmarking web-sites using my tags list. When I type the initial letter, eg: o, the first tag, alphabetically, beginning with 'o' is indicated. But my bookmark is automatically saved there instead of letting me choose a preferred tag from the drop down list. In order to bookmark in my desired tag the only way is to scroll through the whole list and tick my preferred tag. How can I return to the former method? Hope someone has a solution. I have the latest firefox update.

The "Edit This Bookmark" dialog that opens if you click the highlighted star has a checkbox with "Show editor when saving" (shortcut key in the dialog is Alt+S). This item is at the bottom just above "Remove Bookmark" and "Done".
