I have a very old profile and numerous bookmarks, and FF94 consistently crashes for me as well whenever I delete a bookmark.

Comment 2 ricky.tigg 2021-11-08 09:58:10 UTC
Deleting a single bookmark is enough. to be seen new crash report; https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/96cb342f-35bd-4ccf-a21d-f6ef20211108

Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2021-11-08 20:51:07 UTC
That's https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1624384

A workaround is to set widget.wayland.async-clipboard.enabled to false at about:config but that may introduce some clipboard glitches under Wayland for you.

Comment 4 Andre Robatino 2021-11-08 20:57:24 UTC
In my case, when I bring the browser up after the crash, the bookmark IS removed.

@Martin Stransky | Hello. Indeed it had already been on Mozilla Bugzilla. You may close if you consider Fedora not being involved in this issue.

Comment 6 Andre Robatino 2022-02-12 03:03:05 UTC
Appears fixed in firefox-97.0-1.fc35.x86_64 (as expected) even after reverting widget.wayland.async-clipboard.enabled to true.
