That menu item is part of the new Pocket feature in Firefox 38.0.5.

See if disabling the new Pocket feature makes that "view pocket list" bookmarks menu item go away.

Type about:config in the Location Bar and hit Enter. Accept the warning message. Put this pref in the Search field to filter those advanced preferences

browser.pocket.enabled - the default value is true. To turn this feature off - either right-click that pref and select Toggle or double-click that pref to change the value to False.

Nah, the thing is still there. I guess knowing it was Firefox makes it slightly more tolerable, but I hate it when more junk is on my screen. Features like that should be add-ons or something, the browser should be ultra clean, and ANY icon like that should be disposable.

Did you restart Firefox after toggling that preference?

Sorry, that I neglected to mention that the restart might be needed. Many of the preferences added in recent versions don't need a restart to "take set", but this one does - per a thread I just saw posted a few pages back in the forum.

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#menu_pocket, #menu_pocketSeparator, #panelMenu_pocket, #BMB_pocket, #BMB_pocketSeparator { display:none !important; }
#context-savelinktopocket, #context-pocket { display:none!important; }

EDIT: added separator IDs


The customization files userChrome.css (user interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the Firefox profile folder.

You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:

  • Create the chrome folder (lowercase) in the <xxxxxxxx>.default profile folder if this folder doesn't exist
  • Use a plain text editor like Notepad to create a (new) userChrome.css file in the chrome folder (file name is case sensitive)
  • Paste the code in the userChrome.css file in the editor window
  • Make sure that the userChrome.css file starts with the default @namespace line
  • Make sure that you select "All files" and not "Text files" when you save the file via "Save file as" in the text editor as userChrome.css.
    Otherwise Windows may add a hidden .txt file extension and you end up with a not working userChrome.css.txt file

It is basically a few steps that involve creating a userChrome.css file and paste the above posted content in this file.

You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:

  1. create a chrome folder
  2. create a new file userChrome.css in this folder.
  3. paste this text in the file:
#menu_pocket, #menu_pocketSeparator, #panelMenu_pocket, #BMB_pocket, #BMB_pocketSeparator { display:none !important; }
#context-savelinktopocket, #context-pocket { display:none!important; }

Save the file (Save As) and make sure that "All files" is selected because saving as a "Text file" will append a hidden .txt file extension will prevent the file from working.

Wow. It seems like a small thing, and it is, but not only was someone else annoyed by having a feature like that forced on us, they actually wrote a program to do something about it. Admiral, edmeister.

You can right-click the Pocket button and click "Remove From Toolbar" or "Remove From Menu" to disable Pocket and move the Pocket button to the Customize palette. That will also remove the Pocket entries in the Bookmarks menu. This only works if browser.pocket.enabled = true So you need to undo this change and toggle the pref to true with a double-click on the browser.pocket.enabled pref line.

Your welcome, but please give credit to cor-el for coming up with the code. I'm am not proficient with CSS, I know just enough about it to use it and share it with others. Basically,I just posted that code in a venue that makes it easier for less experienced users to install that code.

hi cor-el, i am mystified about this! Ie, why is Firefox using Chrome to help it carry out its added features? It seems to me that relying on Chrome makes it too complicated for those of us who want to try Pocket and such-- eg., i prefer myself to only use Firefox clear across the board, which is already messy enough using Windows XP and iMac desktop and my Android phone, and trying to get it all to sync properly! I would like to use Pocket, if there is indeed the possibility of syncing the links we save with it, including all the content inside the webpages of these links, just by using Firefox, and not having to install any other browser just to do this! (which i would have to do not only once but three times, not easy at all! And especially difficult, considering A. i usually don't have a reliable internet connection, and B. i don't relish the thought of having to learn the ins and outs of a new browser, and C. Chrome from what i've heard tends to put junkware all over your OSs... When i chose to try Pocket, i had the impression that Firefox was offering us this feature as a way to sync info we discovered from our webpage visits down to our computers and phones,to have offline access to the content. But i was mistaken? Thanks for clearing this up!

chrome:// has nothing to do with the Google Chrome browse.

The chrome:/// URL references the XUL user interface used in Firefox and other Mozilla programs. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Tech/XUL/Tutorial/The_Chrome_URL

I suspect that a former Mozilla programmer who left Mozilla to work on the new Google browser in 2006 was the one who came up with the idea to use that name for the Google browser.

Just spotted the thread that you started over here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1065807 - please continue there.
