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.

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.

When I right-click a bookmark folder and select "Sort By Name", it sorts sub-folders to the top, then individual bookmarks after.

I prefer folders and files not to be segregated like that, but to be sorted together. That is how I have it in my file manager, I'm used to it, I much prefer it. I would like to be able to duplicate that behavior in Firefox's bookmarks. Is that possible?

Storing the Firefox user-profile on a SMB-share not working

Hi,

I have a problem with Firefox 102.5esr on MacOS 10.13 and storing the user-profile on a SMB-share in the intranet.

On startup I get the error "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional" and as expected, bookmarks and history are not working. Access etc. in the network are correct, I tried it with two different clients on two different servers (Linux-Server and NAS), the profile is a fresh created, deleting and recreating does not help.

If I copy the created profile on the local disk, Firefox starts without an error, bookmarks/history are working, if I copy this profile back to the SMB-share, I get back the error-message.

In the past (I don't remember when it was and which version) this was working with Firefox and today it still works with the current Thunderbird.

Any ideas?

PS: The described solutions in the KB are not working: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

Thanks, kind regards, tg
