    Problems adding files to Firefox folders


    I recently made MS Edge my default browser due to multiple problems w/Firefox. I've added new files since this occurred but for the last couple of days I haven't been able to add files (websites, etc.) to my Firefox folders. It seems to me that I would click on the star and add the new file to Favorites Bar and then after opening Bookmarks Menu another message would pop up and ask which folder to I wanted to put this file in. This is not working for me. I've also tried the option that looks so easy...click on star, message asking which folder I wanted and click "save", but this isn't working either. I know I must be doing something wrong, but it seems that method #2 should be the correct and definitely easiest way. However neither method is working, so I'm hoping some folks here who are familiar w/FF solve this problem for me. Thanks in advance.

    :)

    How do I print directory list Windows 10?

    Works perfectly. I can save the list as a file from Firefox to my folder, too. Many thanks.

  3. How do I print directory list Windows 10?

    I use Firefox. Copy the path (e.g file:///C:/Users/Obama/Music) from the folder, paste to the address bar of Firefox and hit enter. Firefox will display the list of files. Use the Firefox Print to print. Or copy and paste to Word or Notepad.

    Chrome will also work. Internet Explorer will not work as it will open the folder.

  4. Problems adding files to Firefox folders

    Standard procedures:

    1. Start Firefox in Safe Mode, test. If problem does not occur, restart Fx, disable a group of extensions, retest, and continue until problem recurs, identifying the problematic extension.

    Thanks for the response but, as I stated in my post, I'm not using FF. I'm using MS Edge and I've imported all my folders from FF into Edge. I've been able to add websites up until today when it started acting squirrelly. If you have any further suggestions please let me know.

  6. I quote what you wrote, ". I've added new files since this occurred but for the last couple of days I haven't been able to add files (websites, etc.) to my Firefox folders."

    "I recently made MS Edge my default browser due to multiple problems w/Firefox. I've added new files since this occurred but for the last couple of days I haven't been able to add files (websites, etc.) to my Firefox folders" This is what I said in my post but I should have chosen a different name. Now I see where the confusion came from...guess there's no way to retitle the post, but now that you know that I was referring to my FF folders that have been imported into Edge can you offer any suggestions? So sorry for the confusion...may have to repost. Thanks.

    Problems adding files to Firefox folders

    Hi Fred.
    The import function only occurs once - it doesn't keep syncing. So, either add them in Edge, or reset Firefox, updating it to the latest version (53), and try it again, without any extensions.

    As I stated in my post, Edge is now my default browser. I'm just having trouble adding files to the folders which I imported from FF to Edge. I've been able to do it up until today and now not able to add new files. Could you reread my post and see if you can help me. Thanks.

  13. Problems adding files to Firefox folders

    Hi Fred.

    If I could ask, when you say you can't add websites to the folders you imported from Firefox what error message are you getting?

    Does Edge hang? Does it appear to work but when you go to use they are not there?

    When you attempt to add a favorite to one of the folders and it doesn't work is anything being reported in the Event logs? (System, Security, Application)

    All I see now is Favorites Bar. Let me try to bookmark this page and see what happens. Just tried it...saved in Favorites, then the whole thing disappeared. I get that drop down menu that has the names of all my folders, but if I try to save in the proper folder, it doesn't go there. Can you tell me the step by step procedure. It seems to me that if all of my folders were on the menu then I'd just save it to the appropriate folder, but that doesn't work.

    No error message or anything. If I select, for example my Forums folder to save this page' It looks like it's going there but doesn't. Should I be saving in "Favorites" or the designated folder? Thanks.
