I have a long list of bookmarks but recently when I try to bookmark a site only a few of my bookmarks show.

I hit Control D or click on "bookmark this page" and I get the normal dialogue box but when I ask for the bookmark menu only 4 of my bookmarks appear. I know that others are there because when I click on "bookmarks" I get the full list.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox Profile Folder.
