Deleting "Other Bookmarks" on toolbar

An update of Firefox today left me with a toolbar with precious acreage devoted to the large, clumsy and unnecessary "Other Bookmarks" tab. I read on this help site the technical solutions, which are way over my head (it is not even remotely clear how to get an "address bar," much less enter software instructions in it!). For the rest of us dummies out there, can someone tell me if it is possible to get rid of this Other Bookmarks button? (I say it is unnecessary because clicking on the very compact right-pointing double arrow-heads always takes one to Other Bookmarks -- no need to waste toolbar space with the actual words!). I have not found any solution to this problem. In my view, it was a bad idea to "add" this feature--it should be removed in future updates!

Firefox 84+ adds this "Other Bookmarks" button when there are bookmarks in the "Other Bookmarks" folder as part of new bookmark features that are current under development. It is possible that you participate in a shield study that has enabled this new feature and sets the control pref to true to investigate the user experience, you can check this via the about:studies page.


You can set browser.toolbars.bookmarks.2h2020 = false on the about:config page to disable this new feature.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.


Note that in Firefox 85+ (next week released) you will be able to right-click this "Other Bookmarks" icon on the Bookmarks Toolbar to toggle its appearance (Show Other Bookmarks).
