How can I completely remove permanently the entire Reciently Bookmarked function

more options

I have used the hide function, and checked the about:config for a false flag but the category Recently Bookmarked, with listings, still remains. I want the function and bar removed completely. An acceptable alternative is a way to remove the listings from the category WITHOUT removing them from my bookmark list.

Hey

I’ve noticed what seems to be a deliberate refusal to answer the question of: "How can I completely remove permanently the entire Recently Bookmarked function"

We want to know how to completely remove the "Recently Bookmarked" feature/entry from the “Bookmarks” menu list, not just how to hide and show actual bookmarks. We know the difference and we know what we’re asking for. We want the “Recently Bookmarked” completely gone or dysfunctional via options so that it's not even possible to show the actual recently bookmarked pages.

Telling us to right-click on "Recently Bookmarked" and selecting "hide recently bookmarked" only transfers the recently bookmarked pages from the main bookmarks list to a child/sub list easily accessible by simply hovering over the "Recently Bookmarked" menu item. Simply removing these recent bookmarks to a submenu and allowing them to show by just hovering over the very item we want removed is not “hiding” of those bookmarks.

Equally inadequate is the instruction to type "about:config" into the address bar and navigating to the setting labeled: browser. bookmarks.showRecentlyBookmarked and changing its value to "false" as this is only an alternate for previous instruction and achieves the same result of simply moving the recently bookmarked pages to a sub list that still displays by hovering over the "Recently Bookmarked" menu item - the very item we want to control.

Respectfully, we know the difference between a recently bookmarked webpage and the “Recently Bookmarked” menu item that provides access to these pages. I’ve noticed that the above question, clear in what it seeks; asked by many users with the same ineffective instructions provided. It’s starting to look like a deliberate refusal to allow control of the feature. Surely, someone in support can see what users are requesting by now even if there has been a genuine misunderstanding. These instructions, along with the “hide recently bookmarked" feature, accessible by right clicking on "Recently Bookmarked", is misleading and a convenient, superficial trick for forcibly maintaining visibility of the actual Recently Bookmarked pages – or so it seems. This unwanted feature seems to be deliberately superficial about "hiding" recently bookmarked pages for those unwilling to read the browser’s instructions or take the time necessary to verify the actual hiding of recently bookmarked pages. We’re expected to accept recently bookmarked webpages as “hidden” so long as they transfer from the main bookmarks list to a separate mini list while not hovering over the “Recently Bookmarked” which exposes the recently bookmarked web pages.


I’m tempted to ask: Why does Mozilla/Firefox want those recent bookmarks to show even after using the so called "hide" feature. And I if I gave in to that temptation, I couldn’t resist asking: Why provide your users the same inadequate instructions which only makes the recently bookmarked pages viewable in a separate sub list? This above question is clear with user request for a means to control and/or remove the actual "Recent Bookmarks" feature? – and not relocation of recently bookmarked pages?

Why are you pretending to misunderstand this request? But I won't ask these questions as that would suggest Mozilla has an interest in making it difficult for users to implement a semblance of privacy with regards to user browsing habits.

Please stop giving us the run around by telling us how to remove it, or admit the impossibility of its removal. A lie would even be better than dismissing users with disinformation and the assumption that users are too dense to recognize the difference between relocation and actual removal of browser content. Respectfully, we deserve better. Thank you.
