I miss Firefox's ability to save a bookmark to a previously used folder. I realize that this was never supported by the base version of Firefox, however, it was possible to accomplish through add-ons. For example, if I save a bookmark to the folder "Music", then the next time I bookmark a page it should choose "Music" as the default choice; both when using the Star icon to bookmark a page, or when using the Crtl+D shortcut.
Roughly 2-3 years ago this was able to be done using add-ons. However, since those add-ons have become legacy extensions no developer has come forward with an add-on that accomplishes this feature.
If this was enabled it would save both myself and others a lot of time. At the moment, if I wanted to bookmark a bunch of tabs that are all related while doing research, I would need to click the star icon, move my mouse down and then select the recently used folder. That is a lot more steps then simply clicking the star icon and being done.
Bookmarking a page with this method takes about 3 seconds for each tab if I am bookmarking a bunch of tabs in a row. On the other hand, if the browser remembered my previously bookmarked folder then it would only take about 1 second per tab (This was tested using Chrome as the test browser since it has this feature enabled by default).
By allowing the browser to remember what folder I bookmarked to last, it would save me a good amount of time since I could move my mouse less per tab while bookmarking pages.
Being able to accomplish the same task in roughly a third of the time is pretty important and is substantial enough of a difference that I would consider using a different browser in order to increase my productivity.
