When will the "Bookmark this page" selection be returning to the bookmark drop down? No, seriously! We want it back!

The removal of the "Bookmark this page" selection was a huge mistake. None of the answers really solve the issue. Click the star and then click it again so you can edit the bookmark then move it to the folder you want, or install this add-on to manage your bookmarks. The real fix for this issue is simply to put the selection back. People want simple and when they have something that works well they don't want it to change just because the programmer wanted to do it differently. So when will this functionality be returning?

  • If you click the ★ Star Icon once, the bookmark ends up in the Unsorted Bookmarks folder.
  • If you double-click the ★ Star Icon, you get to pick where to place the bookmark.
  • If you right-click (or Ctrl+click on a Mac) an empty area of the web page and choose Bookmark This Page, the bookmark ends up in the Bookmarks Menu folder and you get to pick where to place it.
  • If you press Ctrl+D (Mac: Command+D), the bookmark ends up in the Bookmarks Menu folder and you get to pick where to place it.
  • You can click and drag the site icon (usually a globe or a padlock) on the left side of the address bar onto either the Bookmarks Toolbar, the Bookmarks Sidebar (Ctrl+B; Mac: Command+B), or the Library (Ctrl+Shift+B; Mac: Command+Shift+B; Linux: Ctrl+Shift+O).

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

I see no reason to believe menu items that were deemed clutter will be reintroduced — especially when there are multiple ways to perform the action in question.

In current Firefox releases the "Bookmark This Page" menu entry in the Bookmarks menu changes to "Edit This Bookmark" once you have bookmarked the page and the star on the Navigation Toolbar is highlighted blue.

So do not get confused by the missing "Bookmark This Page" in the Bookmarks menu and seeing "Edit This Bookmark" instead if you try to bookmarks a page that is already bookmarked.

You can make a extra copy of a bookmark by dragging the link to a folder in the bookmarks sidebar or by doing a copy and paste in the Bookmarks Manager (Library).
