So this crazy new update has broken my Firefox in these ways:

1. All my bookmarks on my bookmarks bar have been deleted. 2. I can't drag any new links to the bookmarks bar 3. Overflow menu for apps is empty and will only let me drag Firefox defaults to it such as settings. Dragging apps to it is impossible. It "is" possible to pin items by using the Chrome puzzle piece..

Firefox: 109.0 OS: Windows 10 Pro

Using troubleshooting mode has no effect.

Using Firefox on desktop, Windows 11. I am a long term Firefox fan/user.

My problem is I cannot find anywhere an easy method to add a shortcut on my Home Screen (which has now been a FF feature for some considerable time).

I am sure there was something available to do this in a prior version some time back. If I search the internet, I only come across articles describing how to do it on Firefox Android.

I know I can manually edit a box on the Home Screen to create what I need.

Sometimes new web sites that I visit appear in the boxes and I can then pin them in place - but the behavior around this is very erratic and unreliable - seems like random chance for an icon to appear on the home screen for a newly visited site. If this was more consistent, I could work with that.

BUT - where is the **intuitive** option??!!

I should be able to right-click on a tab and select "Add to Home Screen".

As simple as that.

Or drag and drop a link, or tab to the home screen - but this just opens the link. I have tried everything obvious that I can think of.

Anyone?

Many thanks :)

Through the years (been using FF since its first months) on various computers, various OS and FF versions, I've kept a bunch of bookmarks in my toolbar for frequently used links that I can QUICKLY "right-click, copy link, paste" (3 steps) into social media posts.

Tonight I opened up my bookmark contextual menu, hit copy, pasted it into my Twitter, and it pasted the title instead of the link!!

How useless is that! A title is easy to type out, a long complex url isn't, having a "copy" (title) instead of the "copy link" is entirely useless!

Now to accomplish same, I have go choose "edit" instead of "copy link" and then "click drag" the url then "copy" then "paste" then close the window. 5+ steps instead of 3. Who on Earth thought changing that function was a good idea?! More steps is NEVER a good direction.

IOS: 12.6.3 Firefox 102.9.0esr macbook rebooted cached cleared

Clarification coming from possible answers: Firefox's "Paste" function is working fine, since the url correctly pastes to Mac PAGES and Facebook. It's the paste to Twitter that does "Title" instead of "url". So obviously a Firefox-Twitter problem.

Variation of problem: I tried "Copy" from Firefox Bookmark Subemnu, then went over to Twitter on Chrome, and the "Paste" to Twitter on Chrome also results in a paste of Title instead of url. I tried "Copy" from Chrome Bookmark Submenu, then paste into Twitter on Chrome, and the "Paste" correctly pastes the url. This points to a mis-programming of the Firefox "Copy" function in the bookmark submenu.

On upgrading to Firefox ver 118.02, I cannot get any toolbar icons to appear in their correct place on the bookmarks toolbar. Instead they are crammed in the middle of the second (address) line. The double chevrons can be used to access the remaining of the toolbar icons.

Dragging a link to the toolbar space is not allowed.

Please fix this. I need easy access to ALL my toolbar icons, and have an expanded search box on the second line.

I recently upgraded from Window 7 to windows 10. Ever since, the spacing between the bookmarks has significantly increased. I read several post about this and they all seem to be looking for something in Firefox. I think it has to do with something in windows 10, not Firefox. Any ideas? I've already done the Density/Compact thing. Slight improvement, but not anything like it was under Window 7.

I research a LOT. So I have 12,000+ Bookmarks in 100's of subfolders covering 100's of topics. The only conceivable way to organize them is to view the contents of many subfolders SIMULTANEOUSLY and be able to do massive drag & drops between them.

Just like I could do 15 years ago using the old Windows Favorites folder and the 100's of subfolders within it.

(In my opinion it was a really BAD idea to stray from that paradigm. When I moved to Firefox I went from being VERY well-organized to having a complete cluster. In the old days I could IMMEDIATELY access any Favorite via Start Menu or any other Windows way. The unwieldiness of Firefox's Library -- in the context of a hi volume of Bookmarks -- has made such organization impossible, and rendered my Bookmarks practically useless.)

If I had access to the old way, I could probably organize 12,000 Bookmarks in a day. The present Firefox Library is gonna take me about 2 weeks -- seriously. Because I can only view the contents of 1 folder at a time and also because a ton of scrolling is necessary to drag & drop. And lastly because I don't have the contextual "forest" visible to me for decision-making since I can only see 1 "tree" at a time. Basically its NOT DO-ABLE. Surely I can't be the only person with this issue.

My searches for a solution have only turned up the apparently defunct PlainOldFavorites extension.

This has been painful for well over a decade, but its reached a crisis point. Thank you.

I added an Add-On to try it called [by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox] Notes by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox which I have since removed as the Add-On has corrupted my Bookmarks. When I click 'Show Sidebars' my Bookmarks don't show (thought they are there) but it's as though the font is white making it impossible to see them.

If I click Bookmarks I can see them and/or when I click on Manage Bookmarks that option opens and I can see all my Bookmarks. This only happened after I added "Notes by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox" Add-On. I was thinking there could be possibility it could have been caused by changing the appearance to Dark Mode, (for example Facebook or Twitter, etc).

There must be a better fix then to refresh / restore Firefox to its default settings as I have about 90 Tabs Open

From 8 years of using Firefox and updates, there is a perpetual, never-ending serious bug, occurs on all computers! If one has a lot of open tabs with a lot of RAM, the tabs are also automatically frozen then it is impossible to add bookmarks to all 4760 tabs. So never ever make a bookmark! It takes forever to work, nothing happens, even no extension can, nothing will help. This is some kind of stuck bug. Chrome, it ALWAYS, ALWAYS WORKS WITHOUT PROBLEM! I can add in 1 second in Chrome, but never, ever in Firefox for 8 years!

Hello there; I had installed the "savefrom.net" extension. This extension automatically generated the website address to the "bookmarks toolbar". I deleted the extension and deleted the shortcut as well. But when the bookmarked website shortcut "firefox" is closed and reopened, it adds itself to the bookmarks toolbar again. No matter what I did, it didn't work. I don't want to delete Firefox completely and reinstall it. Because there are too many shortcuts and data that I use all the time. How do you think I can solve this problem?
