Hi All,

Does anyone know how to edit the link in a live bookmark? It used to be the case the Properties window brought up the URL and the Livefeed URL. Now, it just shows bookmark title and a description box. No URLs. I have more than one live feed that does not properly encode the page URL vs the livefeed URL, and I need to edit these. Re-adding them does not help.

In any event, why are live bookmarks not even showing up as bookmarks with any sort of URL information?

I can show the location box with a css tweak, but I can't edit the livemark feedURI.

Code: Select all
#editBMPanel_rows > #editBMPanel_locationRow[collapsed="true"] {
  visibility: visible !important;
}

I can add a livemark in the browser console.

Code: Select all
PlacesUtils.livemarks.addLivemark({
  title: "BBC News",
  siteURI: Services.io.newURI("http://www.bbc.com/news"),
  feedURI: Services.io.newURI("http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/rss.xml"),
  parentId: PlacesUtils.toolbarFolderId,
  index: PlacesUtils.bookmarks.DEFAULT_INDEX,
});
