Hello everyone,

Prior to this 110.0 release, every time I would access my Bookmarks menu, it would remember where in the list I last left off, and I could return to that section of the list next time. Now, if I go all the way to the bottom of my Bookmark list, next time FF returns me to the top of the list, and I have to scroll down again. Anyone know how to fix?

Having a long list of bookmarks, I used to be able to scroll to the bottom, chose a bookmark there and after closing the page and opening bookmarks again, it has stayed focused around the last used one. Now, when I open bookmarks again, it has reverted back to the top and have to scroll all the way down again to the one I want. This happened since the latest update. I have not been able to find any solution in settings. Can anyone point me to a solution?

Best regards,

So, I have a couple of bookmarks folders with something like 200+ entries, with the folders themselves on my bookmarks toolbar. Previously, when I opened the folder from the toolbar, it would default to the last position observed, e.g. if I selected a bookmark from the middle, it'd open back up to the middle.

It's stopped doing that lately, and instead always opens to the top of the folder. I realize this sounds minor, but it's catastrophic for my use case. Anyone got any tips on how to make it revert to the previous behavior?

I've recently updated to version 110.0, and I immediately noticed an issue with my bookmarks where my scroll position in the bookmarks list isn't being saved after opening a tab or two. It keeps resetting back to the top of the list after a few seconds.

I don't know if this is a bug resulting from the latest update or what, but I know I didn't have this issue with bookmarks prior to updating to 110.0.

Hello, I've noticed a change since the last update and don't understand why?

When opening the bookmarks tab I would get the drop down of a long list of links I have saved. I sometimes bunch them into groups so when looking down the long list, I can see the link I want better when more than one are from the same website.

But my issue is that when I went through the list and found that group of links, I could click onto one to open the page. In the past before the update I could click on the bookmarks drop down again, and still see the same area of links I had just clicked on.

Now when the bookmarks drop down closes it defaults to the top of the list and I need to scan down to find the links I was looking at again. Why? Yes when I closed the browser off and reopened it the bookmarks list would start at the top again. But if left opened I could click on the bookmarks tab and it would open to the same link area I clicked onto last.

Is there a way in settings I can reverse this annoying, unnecessary change.

A word to the Firefox workers that like changing things for no reason. I use Firefox because I like the things your browser has that the others don't. Keep taking the little things away that people like, which you seem to keep doing, then my favourite browser will just become "The same old s#*@" like all the others.

I just updated to ver 11. prior to this if I scrolled down a list of bookmarks in a folder the next time I went to the folder ff would remember where I was and open at that spot. now every time I open the folder I am at the top of the list. this is very inconvenient since my folders has a LOT of bookmarks tagged. is there some option I need to check or uncheck. some other way to restore the reopen at previous location.

Firefox Bookmarks On-Screen List

Firefox 110.0 (64-bit) (recent update from Firefox 109.0.1) Dell XPS desktop computer -NO CHANGE- Windows 8.1 -NO CHANGE- Other hardware and software -NO CHANGE- … (read more)

  • Firefox 110.0 (64-bit) (recent update from Firefox 109.0.1)
  • Dell XPS desktop computer -NO CHANGE-
  • Windows 8.1 -NO CHANGE-
  • Other hardware and software -NO CHANGE-

From the Menu Bar, clicking the "Bookmarks" tab causes Firefox to list my bookmark folders and individual bookmarks along the left side of my screen. -NO CHANGE-

My list of saved bookmarks is large, and extends below the PC screen. I must therefore initially scroll to the bookmark I am interested in. I group bookmarks and frequently want to go to grouped bookmarks, one after the other. -NO CHANGE-

In previous Firefox versions (say 109.0.1), when I first scrolled down and selected a bookmark and went to that website, the NEXT time I clicked on the Bookmarks tab, the list would be at the last bookmark selected. (See Figure 1.) -PREVIOUS BEHAVIOR-

Now, with Firefox 110.0, the list of bookmarks always starts at the top (see Figure 2), meaning I have to manually scroll all the way down to the bookmark(s) I am interested in every time. -CHANGE-

This is inconvenient and annoying.

Is there a setting to control this behavior? If not, I am going to remove Firefox 110.0 and re-install 109.0.1 (if possible). (Please do NOT tell me this is the fault of using Windows 8.1. That excuse would be unacceptable.)

Why are bookmark folders resetting to the top each time they're used? Instead of the folder holding it's place, it now goes back to the top of the folder. So if I used a bookmark that was midway down a folder, and I want to use the bookmark directly below it next, I have to scroll down the folder back to it, instead of the folder holding its place. Why? And how can I make it stop? Thanks.

Has anyone noticed that the Bookmark's / Daily Links 'pointer' gets reset to top of the list after selecting a bookmark?

Seeing this issue on a PC with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

I.e. (Example only) Say a user has 100 bookmarks on main toolbar [many bookmarks saved under Daily Links or under the ">>" icon] ...and user chooses any stored link/bookmark, say for example, ...approximately link/bookmark #50; that tab opens okay. After doing so, maybe user chooses to open another link in same listing nearby-say #51 bookmark in a new tab browser window (multitasking etc.), ...often now, user gets put to top of said list, to bookmark#1 (especially after ) selecting a saved bookmark by clicking on either the ">>" icon or selecting "Daily Links".

In my experience with Firefox, this action never reverted back to top of either list prior to latest 110.0 update (64bit). I haven't tried issue to see if repeated on Windows 10 or higher yet. Appreciate any insight or bug solution to this scrolling issue using bookmark toolbars.

Starting today, for some reason when I access my bookmarks, I have to start from the very top of all my lists of bookmarks. In the past when I accessed a bookmark, and then a clicked on the bookmark tab to access ANOTHER bookmark, my bookmark list would show where I had left off from the previous bookmark within that list. Now when I access a another bookmark after I had accessed a previous bookmark, my bookmark list starts from the very top of it instead of where I was previously within that bookmark list. Being I have many bookmarks, it is a real pain to have to constantly scroll down from the top of my bookmark list every time to access another bookmark. This peculiar situation just started today. In the past this would NOT happen when I accessed my bookmarks. Can someone please explain and help me? Thank you.

I browse many websites daily. I liked that Firefox would keep my progress when looking thru my bookmarks. After a update my bookmarks when open are back at the start or top of my bookmarks. So I have to scroll down every time to find where I left off. Is there a setting I need to set so the menu stays on the selected bookmarks or does not revert back to the top.

Hi Since the latest update of Firefox, if I am clicking on a bookmark at the bottom of my bookmarks list, when I then access the bookmarks list again the bookmarks list always returns to the top, so I have to scroll down again to the bottom, as my bookmarks list is quite long. It never did this before and would always remain at the same point in the bookmarks list when I opened them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

For the first time this morning I discovered the following issue: I have a big list of sweepstakes bookmarks with a bookmark folder hierarchy, and Firefox does not remember the last view position of the bookmark side panel scroll bar. As a result, I have to scroll down and manually search the position myself. I expect Firefox to display everything as it was at the time it was last closed. Your help will be extremely appreciated. Microsoft Edge has been wanting me to make the switch, but besides the learning curve, I've been using Firefox for a number of years now, and would like to continue doing so. By the way, I believe the latest Mozilla Firefox update may have been the cause.

The bookmarks scrolling issue since the last update remains, and there has been zero response from support regarding it, no matter who's asked about it.

How about this - when is the next FF update expected? I'm sick and tired of wasting time using a browser that only lets you open one bookmark at a time, and expects you to scroll down through all of them each time you need to access a different one since it no longer holds its place like it did before the last update. And I'm sick and tired of wasting time reporting an issue to "support" only for it to be ignored.

Have to keep scrolling bookmarks folders from the top instead of being able to pick up where I left off LIKE IT USED TO BE.

Also, instead of being able to right click and open bookmarks in new tabs to try and speed things up, it immediately switches to the new tab, which means having to scroll from the top of the folder AGAIN anyway. And yes, I'm well aware of the "switch to it immediately" option in the settings menu, and that box is UNCHECKED in my settings.

I'm not the only one complaining about this time waster, yet no replies from support on any of the threads.

Like the title states - now have to scroll back down through all the bookmarks in a folder because it no longer holds its place. This is a great time waster.

Thought I would try to save some time by opening bookmarks in new tabs, but it then switches to the new tab immediately and I still have to scroll back through the same folder to open the next bookmark.

Is there a fix for this issue?
