CentOS recently upgraded to FF 60.1. I have a question about where new bookmarks are placed. In prior versions Ctrl-D added a bookmark to the current page to the end of the "Bookmarks" list. Yes it could get long but I would eventually organize them or delete them. With FF 60.1 I find that new bookmarks are placed by default in a folder Other Bookmarks. An extra step to find a recent bookmark. Is it possible to change FF 60.1 to add new bookmarks to the end of the list by default?



p.s. It looks like "Bookmarks Menu" is where I want them to land.

You can use an extension to select your own default folder: (access its options from the Add-ons page)

Thanks jscher2000,

Sorry I am so late in replying. I installed the recommended addon but it has taken me a while to get it configured to do what I want (add new bookmarks to the bottom of the bookmark menu) but I finally have it working. My preferences in the addon sure look like what I first chose when I installed it. Now, however, it is actually doing what I told it. I guess I will just call that a success and move on.
