Attempting to add a tag is not working, once I close the bookmark editor the tag just added is gone.

The feature where when you began to type the tag in the box and it gave you a drop down list has stopped working.

Attempting to add a tag while in the library to existing bookmarks: the tag vanishes.

Attempting to create a new tag: once you exit, the tag is gone.

I want to find and display the location of a single bookmark in the entire bookmark folder. I can search my bookmarks using key words and display the bookmarks with the search terms. However, what I want to know is which bookmark folder the found bookmark is located in. Is there a way to identify that. Thanks.

thread is over here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1299043

I am responding to jscher2000, who posted to my question a short while ago about the loss of my bookmarks and being unable to restore. Thanks very much for the fast response. I checked the Places Database section of Troubleshooting, and as you suggested it does say "The places.sqlite database is sane", and "The favicons.sqlite database is sane". So I assume that's good? Now what do I do? Again, many thanks for the assistance.

Hello, It seems that my Firefox Browser upgraded itself and has a different look now, precisely speaking, my browser looks like beta version now. Earlier in the past, I downloaded Beta but I was disappointed because I COULD NOT FIND OR SEE MY BOOKMARKS.. Sadly and annoyingly, same thing happened now! I have lost all my bookmarks and bookmark folders. I would be grateful if you could please help me get my bookmarks back. Regards, HAKAN [email]

I hope that someone can help. I have just 'lost' a folder of bookmarks with lots of precious bookmarks in it. I did it by creating a new folder and then pasting it inadvertantly on top of the precious one. What can I do?? :)

dupe of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1139452

I want to be able to bookmark genealogy sources from personal, work, and library computers, and then bring them ALL together into Firefox bookmarks on my HOME computer. When using work, friends, or library computers (any computer other than my own, actually). I would like to "login" to a cloud based bookmarking system, update ONE set of permanent bookmarks there with NEW links, and then, finally, merge (or SYNC) that online set to my permanent Firefox bookmarks on my HOME computer system. Can anyone out there suggest a CLOUD BASED system capable of handling 1000s of bookmarks in nested folders, just like Firefox, which I could then IMPORT into FIREFOX on my HOME computer each time updates are added, thus maintaining the same folder structure???

I purchased a new laptop. I exported bookmarks to an html file on my desktop and copied them to a thumb drive. I then copied them to my new laptop. I then imported the bookmarks into Firefox on the laptop. They were magically added to the bookmarks on my desktop. It took a long time to delete the extraneous bookmarks.

How do I avoid this?
