Duh? It looks to me that in Firefox 58, the default folder for bookmarks is suddenly "Other Bookmarks". Whaaaaat? It used to be "Bookmarks Menu". That's what I want. How do I change the default back?

The default was always unsorted bookmarks (now called other bookmarks) if you clicked on the bookmark star. Confusingly, if you typed ctrl-D to bookmark the default used to be bookmarks menu. Now it is other bookmarks. After you press ctrl-D you can press tab to move to the field where the folder is set and press the up arrow to change it to bookmarks menu. Another way to make a bookmark is to drag the favicon for a website into either the bookmarks menu or the bookmarks sidebar to place it where you desire. See here for mostly complaints: viewtopic.php?f=48&t=522643&start=1140 but also mention of this Webextension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... rk-folder/

Thanks. There is no question that I can put the bookmark where I want to put it, the question was how to set that as a default. I am aware of bookmark default extensions. Do these work under Quantum?

Yes.
The "Default Bookmark Folder" extension, as posted by "allande", ^^, works with v56 & up.
