Getting Rid Of Recently Bookmarked

I have Firefox 68.0.1 and I want to get rid of recently bookmarked area. I tried right clicking and it does nothing. I also tried the about:config and nothing in there about recently bookmarked either. How do I get rid of this?

Note that recently bookmarked shows list that is the result of a database query. Firefox shows such list in various places. 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 */


/* hide Recently Bookmarked */
#panelMenu_recentBookmarks,#panelMenu_bookmarksMenu {
 display:none!important;
}

It is not that difficult to create userChrome.css if you have never used it.

The first step is to open the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" page and find the button to access the profile folder.

You can find this button under the "Application Basics" section as "Profile Folder -> Open Folder". If you click this button then you open the profile folder in the Windows File Explorer. You need to create a folder with the name chrome in this folder (name is all lowercase). In the chrome folder you need to create a text file with the name userChrome.css (name is case sensitive). In this userChrome.css text file you paste the text posted. On Mac you can use the TextEdit utility to create the userChrome.css file as a plain text file.

In Windows saving the file is usually the only time things get more complicated because Windows can silently add a .txt file extension and you end up with a file named userChrome.css.txt. To avoid this you need to make sure to select "All files" in the dialog to save the file in the text editor using "Save File as".

You need to close (Quit/Exit) and restart Firefox when you create or modify the userChrome.css file.

Hello Gina,

As I only use Firefox bookmarks feature for pages that don't have a proper URL (I use the Top Sites for all other pages), I simply went to the Library (Ctrl+Shift+B), highlighted every item on the left panel that I wanted gone, then I clicked on "Organize" and "Delete".

Now, when I click on the "star on a pan" all I see are the items that I want there .....

I am using Firefox for all my bookmarks as it's the only browser I will be using. I have a ton of bookmarks and have them organized in their own folders so I can't do what you have done. I do appreciate the help though

Can you clarify where you see the recent bookmarks?

Then we can provide more precise instructions.

You don't have to do what I have done - just remove that one item that you want to get rid of .....

When you go to the Library you should see it on the left side - highlight it, click on "Organize" and then "Delete".

That's how I got rid of it.

That list in the "Library -> Bookmarks" drop-down list should be hidden with the code for userChrome.css I posted above, so it sounds that something went wrong with creating the file. Both the name of the folder (chrome) and the name of the file (userChrome.css) are case sensitive and userChrome.css needs to be a plain text file with no formatting code.

Can you post the file path of the file and possibly the content of the userChrome.css file?

Make sure that the !important flag isn't missing.

/* hide Recently Bookmarked */
#panelMenu_recentBookmarks,
#panelMenu_bookmarksMenu {
  display: none !important;
}

Could it be that you're talking about the "Library" icon (looks like some books on a shelf) and the "Recent Highlighths" ?

If so, here's how to remove it :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

browser.library.activity-stream.enabled

and set its value to false.

Then close and restart Firefox.
