Open the Library > Ctrl+Shift+B and do your editing of Bookmarks and/or History there....

Hi JayhawksRock,

I did check there before I made the post. I don't see "Recently Bookmarked" list option.

I believe it's only recently added to nightly

Same here with latest Nightly. This "feature" is annoying as all get up, as it keeps refreshing the bookmarks when you hover over a new folder.

Bug 1248259 - Bookmarks menu flickers when you open a subfolder

There are other bugs regarding this new "feature" already filed.

You can hide the recently added bookmarks with this css code:

#menu_recentBookmarks {
display: none !important;
}

This will remove the separator:

#bookmarksToolbarSeparator {
display: none !important;
}

There is no ID for the "Recently Bookmarked" title so I haven't figured out how to get rid of that short of installing Menu Wizard and creating an ID. Since I'm still using Menu Editor I'd prefer css code if anyone has any ideas.

And this will remove it from the Bookmarks Menu Button.
Code: Select all
/*** Remove "Recently Bookmarked" from Bookmarks Menu Button ***/
#BMB_recentBookmarks,
menuitem[label="Recently Bookmarked"],
#BMB_recentBookmarks + menuseparator{
    display: none !important;
}

Thank-you, it is now completely gone. What an annoying feature.

how do you use this?

Edit: nevermind, i figured that I had to create a "Chrome" folder in the profile, and add a UserChrome.css file with the above code.

Personally, I use Stylish rather than userChrome. Easier for me to manage, and you don't normally have to restart the browser to see if code additions or revisions work.

Please provide suggestions to this bug as the devs need info.

1st one is Fine but add a extra folder(removable?) which might regenerate with history?

2nd one seems better But would like separate pref to hide both Recently Bookmarked and Unsorted Bookmarks folders from Bookmarks

(In reply to Dão Gottwald [:dao] from comment #13)

The previous implementation was great & did not leak sensitive info/history habits/make it large for no better way.

disabling UI? Better suggestion make Recently Bookmarked a folder, just like Unsorted Bookmarks(removable)

Or should we have a hidden pref? separate pref each to hide both

Or just leave the userChrome.css option? Does not work with e10s
plus unnecessary hacks required (plus pref or removable folder gives power to user choice)

OMG... the workaround via UserChrome.css is also broken now. What are they doing here?
