For some weeks now, the "Bookmark This Page" dialog stopped appearing. When I try to add a new bookmark using Cmd+d It automatically adds it somewhere; usually the Bookmarks Toolbar or the Bookmarks Menu. The same thing happens when I try to add a bookmark in any other way (clicking on the little star in the awesome bar, using the menu item, etc).

I have been trying to figure out where the problem comes from without success. Does anyone know how I could re-enable the "Bookmark This Page" dialog please?

Here is the list of extensions that I have installed along with some user agent info:

Please try running in 'safe mode' to rule in/out your extensions (and other common identifiable factors) as the cause.

I ran Firefox in safe mode and everything worked perfectly thus confirming that the issue comes from an add-on. – Robert Audi Sep 26 '10 at 16:56… – Rushyo Nov 17 '10 at 23:46
