This is a link that takes me to Pocket web site that appears the top of my bookmarks under "Show all bookmarks". When I click on it there is no option to remove this bookmark. I did not install Pocket. I looked at it and I am not interested. I do not want to give up valuable real estate at the top of bookmarks.

I have read many posts and the help page of how to remove it from the toolbar is not relevant (it is not there). I also tried disabling pocket in about:config by toggling to values to false. Nothing helped. It uses up a lot of space and very prominent, I find it very annoying and would like to remove it.

If browser.pocket.enabled is set to false on the about:config page then you will have to undo this and set the pref to true to make the Pocket button reappear. Make sure that the Pocket button is positioned on the Navigation Toolbar, so you can right-click this toolbar button and use "Remove from Toolbar" to disable Pocket properly.

You can right-click the Pocket button (Save to Pocket) and click "Remove from Toolbar" or "Remove from Menu" to disable Pocket and move the Pocket button to the Customize palette. That will remove the "View Pocket List" entries in the Bookmarks menu. This only works if browser.pocket.enabled = true When you have moved the Pocket button to the Customize palette and the pocket items in the Bookmarks Menu are hidden then you can disable Pocket and modify these prefs and close and restart Firefox.

  • browser.pocket.enabled = false
  • browser.pocket.api (clear value)
  • browser.pocket.site (clear value)

Here is the image to illustrate what I am talking about.

What normally happens is, if you right-click the pocket button on the toolbar and use Remove from Toolbar, Firefox also removes it from the Bookmarks Menu. They are tied together in some way.

If you do not have the pocket button anywhere, you may need to start by re-enabling it in about:config, then finding the button using the Customize feature (Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars), and moving it to the toolbar and THEN removing it from the toolbar.

If that doesn't work, there might be an add-on or custom style rule that can take care of hiding the unwanted entries. (I haven't done a search yet.)

thank you.

turns out I had another firefox window open and that about:config reset to true did not take effect until closed all windows and restarted.

then it re-appeared on the navigateion bar, i was able to remove it, and then disable in about:config.

thank you!

what a horrible way to introduce a feature by forcing it to be so invasive. certainly left a bad taste.

The reason behind this is to make it possible to disable Pocket without having to disable this feature via a (hidden) pref on the about:config page. If you disable the pref then only the button is hidden, but is still on the toolbar and in the DOM. The Pocket startup code checks if the button is in the Customize palette to decide whether to disable Pocket properly and not initialize the items in the bookmarks menu.
