Bookmark links will not load/open after updating to 48.0.1
After updating to version 48.0.1, none of my bookmark links will load. I can click them from the toolbar or from the bookmark list and nothing happens.
Hi, one or more of your add-on may be interfering, so Try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily turns off hardware acceleration, resets some settings, and disables add-ons (extensions and themes).
If Firefox is open, you can restart in Firefox Safe Mode from the Help menu:
- Click the menu button , click Help and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled.
If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Safe Mode as follows:
- On Windows: Hold the Shift key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
- On Mac: Hold the option key while starting Firefox.
- On Linux: Quit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox -safe-mode
(you may need to specify the Firefox installation path e.g. /usr/lib/firefox)
When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "Start in Safe Mode".
If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps in the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article to find the cause.
To exit Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.
Incidentally, you have more than one version of Shockwave Flash - which can cause problems, so all but the latest should be removed from your machine -
- Install Flash Player - take care to deselect any optional offers!
When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help others with the same problem. Thank you!
This was very helpful. I was able to locate the add-on causing the issue.

Is there a suggestion what I can use in place of this?
