I want to get rid of "Other Bookmarks", especially since it seems like it recently was set as default for new bookmarks. At least I would like to change default folder for new bookmarks from "Other Bookmarks" to "Bookmarks Menu".

Behaviour:
Click CTRL + D

Result:
"Folder: Other Bookmarks" is selected

Wanted Result:
"Folder: Bookmarks Menu" is selected

Is it possible from about:config, or somewhere else? I tried the add-on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... rk-folder/, but it made bookmarks slow. Also, I like to keep it simple, and not add yet another add-on.

Firefox Quantum, version 58.0

that folder is a firefox system folder, there exist some css code in this forum to hide, but you can not disable or delete it.

Thanks for the links, though I am not sure they would help in this case ...

I just see that a bug report has been created at BugZilla, so I hope it will soon be fixed: Saving bookmark keep defaulting to "Other bookmarks" folder

lets cross fingers if mozilla dev will change something. "default bookmark folder" is currently the only solution.

nevertheless drag and drop into the sidebar (bookmarks) may work also, or the library window in total, or pressing the down/choice arrow to select another one that is not currently in the list (5 recent). quantum is growing, keep some hope ;)
