I wonder why this very important field is removed. I have over 10 years of information recorded in this field for reference. This seems completely unneccessary to remove it. At least, could you provide an import tools so that user can move those description into some other field in the bookmark?

I saw many people asked this question, and no solution works for me. By exporting the information to a html is not enough, because I need to manually handle over 10 years of description information, which is foolish.

What moron decided that the description field in bookmark properties should not be visable or editable. This is the primary reason I've used FF. Thanks.

I'd like to know why someone was allowed to authorize the removal of the ability to see and edit the description field in the bookmark properties. I'd like to know why that person is still employed at Mozilla if they still are.

I'd like to know why this kind of change wasn't discussed with the users.

I'd like Mozilla to know that this is probably the most unpopular brain dead move you've made in quite some time, it is despised by power users. The information is there, allowing it to be displayed an edited is child's play.

These fields are the primary reason why many people use FF instead of Chrome. You've removed that reason. Kind of a dumb move, isn't it?

I lost quite a few bookmarks from the last 6-7 months in a couple of folders. There may be more but that's what I've noticed so far. I think this happened a few days ago when it was syncing. I have since uninstalled FF on my Android. I have back ups on both json and HTML. The question though is, do the back ups retain the "description" entered for each bookmark? That's important for me.

Needless to say, I'm confused and kinda livid.

It seems that Mozilla has gotten rid of the DESCRIPTION window when you right click on a bookmark's properties. This was done in July for the Mac version of Firefox and with Ver. 62.0 for Windows.

No warning was given and there are a lot of complaints on the Mac version forum about this change. Again with Windows there was no warning that this MAJOR change was going to take place.

Like MANY other people I use the DESCRIPTION window to store extensive information about a given webpage. You can imagine my shock this morning when I went to retrieve some info and the window was gone. A little digging online found the complaint thread on the Mac change.

I have no idea why this was done. If it was for some security reason then it is understandable........the change that is, not t he way it was handled.

There are solutions given on the Mac thread on how to use another companies add-on to show the past saved descriptions. They are still in the Mozilla data files but are not shown in Ver. 62. You can also do an EXPORT to a .html file and then open the descriptions in the browser. Or you can reinstall Ver. 61.x from the archives and set it to NOT check for updates. This is what I did for the moment.

PLEASE bring back the DESCRIPTION window in bookmark properties. This is absolutely nuts to have to experience what I went through this morning sorting this all out.

This just changed with yesterday's update. Since forever I've used the Properties of items in my Bookmarks toolbar and in the bookmarks themselves to save other related info. LOTS of other related info. Now I see that when you right click on an item in the toolbar and select properties from the drop down it's totally changed and NONE of the previously stored info is there. This is a HUGE problem for me since I haven't backed up the bookmarks since Jun 2017. How can I get the info I had stored there back?

This is not really a question. I merely want to express my dissatisfaction with the removal of the "Description Box/Column" in the context menu under Properties for Firefox. I have been using Firefox exclusively since the "Windows 98 Days" because of THIS specific "back door" property. I have been a loyal, diehard user because no other prominent browser had this capability. Well, now there is no reason to remain a Firefox user. That's it.

Was it really that much of a nuisance to keep them? I mean...what's the rational here? There are supremely helpful for some people (like me) and completely benign to the users who don't use them.

For me I moderate a forum and I use bookmarks to keep track of problem users. I bookmark their user pages and then in the description field I write what they did wrong and what to look out for from them in the future...now that information is lost and I have dozens of bookmarks of user's profiles with no context whatsoever.

I can imagine some people with thousands of bookmarks have lost a lot more.

I do not appreciate a browser deciding out of the blue to DELETE information I worked hard to compile with zero warning and zero reasons given. If Mozilla doesn't restore this asap I will just move to Chrome and never look back.
