What happened to "bookmark this page" selection in the "show your bookmarks" menu on the right?

Now I have to: 1) click again on the stupid blue star to get the menu to place my new bookmark where I choose to instead of have it go to unsorted bookmarks... OR 2) bring up or have up the menu bar and click on the "bookmarks" menu choice of "bookmark this page" which brings up what I'd call the choice or sort menu that lets me access my bookmarks menu...

...where I wanted to go to create a bookmark AND I get to select "choose", which is what I used to do when adding ANY bookmark.

I want the "bookmark this page" selection back on the "show your bookmarks" list on the right...where it belongs. Why does everyone want to keep hiding the useful tools?

Firefox 29 stinks and I've had nothing but problems from the beginning...and since making the mistake of resetting. I now have a folder of stuff that I have no clue what to do with as, upon resetting, I got "Oooops this is embarrassing, we're having a problem" or something. Any clues about what to do with all that "junk" (now, to me) might also be helpful.

You can press Ctrl+D if you always want to see the Page Bookmarked popup.

The following add-on makes bookmarking easier in various ways. Among other things, it's able to remember the last used folder.

  • Click the bookmark star on the Navigation Toolbar once to bookmark the current site (this will highlight the star) to bookmark the current page in the Unsorted folder
  • Click the blue highlighted star to open the "Edit This Bookmark" pop-up dialog and move the bookmark to another folder

This somewhat solved the problem... But I still don't get why all these software designers find it necessary to add stuff I don't want, that's in my way, and hide stuff I do want. And just make life more difficult...for NO apparent logical reason!

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

I hate all the stuff now at the top of the list I don't use, while they put "show all bookmarks" at the bottom and REMOVED the "bookmark this page" click! Why the Hey would I want to just throw stuff in the unsorted all the time, then hassle with it later? And why would I want to HAVE TO CLICK twice or some other BS to accomplish what I did before with one click and place?

Stupid IMO...and aggravating.

I was used to being able to select the folder to place my bookmark without going into an edit session. This is as useless now as windows "libraries"

BTW there is no such verb as "update"
