Is there a way to definitively get rid of the "bookmarks toolbar" and "unsorted bookmarks" folders in the bookmarks sidebar, and show ONLY the content of the "bookmarks menu"?
Please let me know how to solve this, i'm using firefox since the first try more then 15 years ago and i ever had this (stupid) problem, because mozilla don't want to put an option to set it...

Addons used to do the trick in the past:
- Sidebar Bookmark Selector: not supported for some years and completely removed from the addons site (i have a copy of it saved);
- Bookmarks Menu on Sidebar Panel (link): even more simple (just do what i want), but not supported for firefox 57 and not updated in 2 years.

Can we have a definitive solution to this annoyng mozzilla forgetfulness, like a css script to put in the userChrome.css?
PLEASE! ](*,) (and sorry for the google translation if it's not very good).

#####
in other threads of this wonderful forum i've found solutions atleast to remove "header" (title and cross to close) and "search" from the sidebar (working on firefox 57), this is the script to add in userChrome.css:

/* Bookmarks sidebar: hide "Search:" */
#bookmarksPanel > hbox { display: none !important }
/* Remove SIDEBAR HEADER and CLOSE X */
sidebarheader { display: none !important;}

Nice.
But now, you don't have the "close X", even the Header.
What's the way you close the sidebar ? Ctrl+B ?

Hi, have you please found the solution yet? I'm dealing with the same as you, to get rid of Bookmarks toolbar and Unsorted bookmarks, just to only show Bookmarks menu (in Bookmarks sidebar), exactly the same way those two extentions you mentioned did in previous versions of Firefox.

The only CSS code working in my userChrome.css is the one you mentioned (removing Search field and Header).

I have tried these as well but none of them worked for me at all :(

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
#appmenu_bookmarksPopup menuseparator[builder="end"],
#appmenu_unsortedBookmarks,
#bookmarksMenuPopup menuseparator[builder="end"],
#menu_unsortedBookmarks,
#BMB_bookmarksPopup menuseparator[builder="end"],
#BMB_unsortedBookmarks {display:none!important;}

-------------

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
#menu_unsortedBookmarks { display: none !important; }
#BMB_unsortedBookmarks { display: none !important; }
#bookmarksToolbarFolderMenu { display: none !important; }

-----------

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
/* bookmarks toolbar */
#BMB_bookmarksToolbar{
display: none !important;
}

/* other bookmarks */
#BMB_unsortedBookmarks,
#BMB_unsortedBookmarks + #BMB_mobileBookmarks,
#BMB_unsortedBookmarks + #BMB_mobileBookmarks + menuseparator{
display: none !important;
}

---------------

I've tried those on Firefox 57.0 and 57.0.2, still no luck. Please, any idea what sould I try or what I'm doing wrong?

I see Cor-el over here...(at the end of the page) ...
how to remove the "bookmarks Toobar" and the "Unsorted bookmarks" from the Bookmarks Menu | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support
...posted a possible solution .... no idea if it worked but maybe worth a try?...but it was probably for an older Firefox version...who knows.

Hi, thanx for the tip but that didn't work either. It might work on previous versions of Firefox but definitely no luck on Quantum FF57.

I read many,many posts by Cor-el on that Mozilla board... He/She?? seems to be the main and solid writer of that code... you might think about also joining that forum and maybe PM Cor-el your issue... or, just post something there and paste a link back to this topic... lots of good people over there.

You are welcome... yeah... that Meoware only works when she's awake.... and if you know cats... she sleeps a lot... so, I have to rely on other AV software to do the trick. :lol:

Hello guys,

I'm looking for a solution for Bookmark Sidebar features working withj Firefox 57:

- Auto close other folders when expanding one folder.
- Hiding "Bookmarks Toolbars", "Other Bookmarks", "Mobile Bookmarks"
- Removing top level "Bookmarks Menu" and using its subfolders as root folders.

I was using following addons for these purposes, but they are dead after Firefox Quantum:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... tory-fold/
https://addons.mozilla.org/tr/firefox/a ... s-sidebar/

Any information and findings regarding solution for FF Quantum would be really appreciated.

sorry guys but i haven't find a solution yet...
what i have understood, is that in quantum some things CAN'T get modified, such as folders in the sidebar like previous firefox versions.
i'm tring to live with this really annoing thing.
