Does the same thing occur if you launch the application in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

It may be a Mac thing then, as I don't have the issue here under Win10.

I meant that it might be something specific to the Mac version of Firefox.

If you are clicking the star in the address bar, click it twice to get the window.

If you are hitting CTRL+D (CMD+D), the window should pop up.

If you are using Bookmarks -> Bookmark this page (from the menus), you can click the star in the address bar to edit the bookmark afterwards.

When you are on a bookmarked page, click the star icon in the address bar and look for the checkbox for "Show editor when saving" and turn that on.
