I was a little surprised to see that after clearing history and cache the list of "Recent Bookmarks" remains in the hamburger menu/Bookmarks. This seems like a security violation. Is there anyway to remove that list without deleting the bookmark done by right clicking each bookmark?

I've removed the Recent Bookmarks folder as it wasn't useful for me and occasionally annoyed me.

If you open the Library (Manage Bookmarks) you can select multiple bookmarks and delete them together.

Can it be removed by CSS?
I don't want to delete the bookmarks just the reference and folder as you did.
Are you referring to the "Today" folder?
Just to clarify -- I expected it to be empty once I cleared cache and cookies.

Sorry, I was mistaken. I thought there used to be a folder with Recent Bookmarks, but I created a new profile and there isn't any such thing.

Try this:

Code: Select all
/* Firefox userChrome.css */

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");
@namespace html url("http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml");

html|h2#panelMenu_recentBookmarks,
toolbaritem#panelMenu_bookmarksMenu > toolbarbutton.bookmark-item {
  display: none !important;
}

This removed the "Today" collection of bookmarks from the Menu/Bookmarks after I cleared cache and history by an addon (ClearBrowsingData) but not from the hamburger/bookmarks collection.
