    And suddenly, today, Favorites appears again, in Nautilus and in Nemo but I can't add anything.

    Re: Nautilus Favorites disappeared

    Hello,

    do you mean starred? Opening nautilus I cannot see any favorites, yet using 23.10. Is this a bookmark or something? Actually trying to use starred folder by right clicking a file and choosing starred, this option was not available. I suppose that an update might broke the functionality.

    Regards!

    Presently I have both Favorites and Starred and they are different. I can, however, not add anything to Favorites,

    Does nautilus (files) use bookmarks the same as other gtk file-managers and are they the same thing as your favourites?
    I haven't used gnome or nautilus since gnome2 disappeared all those years ago.

    Do you still have a file ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks as other gtk systems seem to have?
    If so, what is the content of that file?

    Yes, I have ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks with the content below. Another user on my system has the same issue.

    Re: Nautilus Favorites disappeared

    Hello,

    I created both a folder under Documents and a corresponding bookmark named fav and the result under ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks is the following:
    file:///home/user_name/Documents/fav
    file:///home/user_name/Documents
    file:///home/user_name/Music
    file:///home/user_name/Pictures
    file:///home/user_name/Videos
    file:///home/user_name/Downloads

    I deleted the folder under Documents and the bookmarks place complained that something went wrong. Have you by any chance created a Favorites folder, added it to bookmarks and then accidentally changed its position/deleted it and you are having the problem you mention?

    Regards!
