"places.xul" file not found after update to FF 73.0

Posted

Hi there, I run FF 73 on Lubuntu, and since the upgrade chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul is no longer found. I use it as a handy bookmarks and downloads manager within a tab. Error message:

"Firefox can't find the file at jar:file:///usr/lib/firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/browser/content/browser/places/places.xul. "

I realize that this question is similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223548#answer-1127393 but it doesn't solve my issue. In fact the URI's listed also don't work I have found:

   chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/historySidebar.xul 

Please advise. Thanks for your help!

Hello Peter,

The "xul" changed to "xhtml" with the latest update.

So, now you'll have to enter this URL in the address bar :

chrome://browser/content/places/places.xhtml

The same goes for these :

chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml

chrome://browser/content/places/historySidebar.xhtml
