FF22? Is that a beta version? I have FF21.0 and am told there are no updates available when I check for them.

Could be a bug in version 22.

Remember that beta can and often does have bugs, its testing only. Once the known bugs are sorted that's when it progress on to finished/released version.

You only use Beta versions if you are prepared to accept it has faults.

Gamejunkie I have a grand total of 1917 bookmarks on FF 21 (with 82 folders) and am not having this issue. It sounds like something in your FF profile has become corrupted (which has then been carried over to FF 21 on uninstallation of 22 and installation of 21).

There's probably some good kb pages on what to do about corrupted FF profiles in Mozillazine.

I think I need to do some bookmark housework. 1917 is ridiculous.

I have my bookmarks saved in folders on the bookmark toolbar so they run across the top of my screen for easy access

managed to fix it.

backed up the profile, made a save with xmarks(great program) restored some stuff and hey presto.

i think ive had to do this before, but all fixed now

thanks
