Windows 7: Firefox Bookmarks no longer asks me what folder to put the page in

Windows 7 ...64 but running at 32
Firefox Bookmarks no longer asks me what folder to put the page in

I used to like it when I clicked "Bookmark this page," it would give me the option of putting the page into a pre-made folder or to make a new folder or just to keep it with the general bookmarked pages.

Now it does not ask and I have to go to organize and move the pate where I want it which is a waste of my time.

Anything I can do to get it back the way it was?
Thank you!!!

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
See Troubleshooting extensions and themes and Troubleshooting plugins
If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
  • Use "Disable all add-ons" on the Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions.
  • Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

I was cleaning up my computer and doing things to make it run faster (hiding most of the fonts, dropping the startup screen time etc). DID NOT do anything to the registry as I have learned the hard way that you don't use registry cleaners. On restart, it went into safe mode, after doing a system...
