How can I create a bookmark manually, without visiting a site in firefox 57.0 for android?

The only other way I know of is to long-tap a link to a web page and bring up the context menu. One of the options lets you bookmark it without visiting it first.

That's not good for me, I want to type URL on the keyboard or, at least, copy it from the clipboard. Actually, the problem is that firefox won't save URL typed into the address bar into the history if it gets redirected by the site and until this bug is fixed I want to be able to bookmark this URL because typing it *every* time is rather tiresome.

Actually there is a way: bookmark any old site and then edit the bookmark to whatever you want. Should've thought of that earlier :)
