The disappearance of the add bookmarks window in firefox

Postby rulet » 2019-12-25 13:42

There is such a bug in firefox (68.3.0esr 64 bit, it was on previous versions) under gnome (maybe it also exists under kde, I don’t know) which infuriates me. When adding a bookmark, i.e. Ctrl + D, and then when you change the bookmark name when changing the language, the bookmark editing window disappears, i.e. you must first change the layout and then in another language it is possible to edit the name. Who faced, is there somewhere a bug report or discussion of this misunderstanding?

One way to sort out Debian vs Mozilla Foundation bug reports would be temporarily install the Firefox binary from Mozilla. If you get the same behavior with the Mozilla binary, I would submit the bug report to Mozilla.
You did not mention it, but there are language packs for Firefox. Do you have the language pack from Debian installed for your language?

One other thought. I've seen mention of issues with wayland. If you are using Gnome/wayland, does the firefox window issue persist if you change to Gnome/X11?

Yes, when I change it to x11 session -- problem still exists.

I did so -- the bug also exists when running binary from Mozilla. The interesting thing that bug doesn't exists when running Debian 10 in virtual machine(VMware).
