Restore the default Smart Bookmarks Folders

Firefox includes the following bookmark folders by default:

  • Most Visited: Available from the Bookmarks toolbar, this folder lists pages you have visited the most number of times.
  • Recently Bookmarked: Available from the Bookmarks menu, this folder contains a list of the last several bookmarks you've added. Expand the Recently Bookmarked folder to see a list of sites.
  • Recent tags: Available from the Bookmarks menu, this folder keeps track of the bookmark "tags" you've used most recently. Expand the Recent Tags folder to see a list of tags, then expand each tag to show pages you've recently bookmarked using that tag. For more information on tags, see Bookmark Tags - Categorize bookmarks to make them easy to find.
