I have an on going problem with Firefox. Sometimes when I go to save a new bookmark, as soon as I start typing, the new bookmark vanish. I then have to go into bookmarks menu, find the new bookmark which may be titled "No Title" or just a "small square" and re-title it. As I start typing the first letter of the new Title. The typed letter appears on my screen and quickly vanishes. I have to retype the first letter again and then it works correctly. I have tried many things to fix this. Emptying Firefox cache, Refreshing Firefox many times, Running Windows 11 clean up corrupt files, making sure there is no spy wear of bad files on the computer. I have reinstalled Firefox many times but the problem quickly returns. ( I have wondered if something on my computer is corrupting Firefox, but I cant think, or find out, what it my be.) I have run the program Restoro many times which claims to correct problems but it doesn't fix this one. Had a technician look at it, but his advise was to contact Mozilla. The problem does not always happen and is worse when I first turn the computer on. It plays up on the first new Bookmark I make and then sometimes works correctly. My Bookmark folder is very large and contains much information in a Book, Chapter, Paragraph, Sentence structure. Has anyone experience this problem and how did they fix it? I use a dedicated Solid-state drive for my bookmarks and according to Samsung Magician it is working correctly.

This has been mentioned numerous times and many posts archived without any simple answer or solution for the users from Mozilla - at least from what I could see trawling through the comments. Also many criticisms doing a general internet search. Please add an option/toggle to disable this list so for those users who do not want it can toggle it off. I haven't been paying attention but not sure when this list appeared in this format. I am just a basic user with minimal IT knowledge.

Good Evening,

I am writing from a University, we have a managed environment with updates being rolled out, and we have yet to require the update to 107.01

A prof did so recent had firefox update to 107.01 and ran "Refresh Firefox" and seems to not preserve bookmarks, and it puts the data into "Old Firefox Data" on his desktop.

Not commonly using Firefox as my daily driver for a browser, I ensured I had 107.01 and imported some of my bookmarks, and then ran a refresh of Firefox, and it seems to not preserve bookmarks, and puts the profile guts into the "Old Firefox Data" on my desktop. So I seem to be able to reproduce his problem, and I'm puzzled by it.

Does anyone have any suggestions for conditions that would cause this? Is there a way I can log what "Refresh Firefox" is doing and getting hung up on to not preserve Bookmarks etc? I did "Verify Integrity" for "Places" and it didn't produce any errors that I could see.

Many thanks Thomas
