I saved a lot of pages in my bookmarks, but the recent list only allows me to see 10, so I have to add a bookmark then move it to a new folder. When I add the bookmark to a new folder, I still see it in the same place in recent. Why would you make such a silly bookmark system? I want to see ALL my bookmarks! I can't now I can only see recent and not those I marked before the 10 recent shows you.

If I delete a mark, I can see one of the marks I added before the recent 10.

You can find all the bookmarks in the Bookmarks Manager (Library).


Some information about so called smart bookmarks folders:

  • "Recently Bookmarked" is a so called Smart Bookmark that shows the result of a place query in a list.
  • "Most Visited" and "Recently Bookmarked" and "Recent Tags" are examples of so called Smart Bookmarks folders and are not real existing folders.
  • Smart folders show a list created by a query of the places.sqlite database that stores bookmarks and history in Firefox.
  • Smart folder lists show a maximum of 10 entries by default.
  • Bookmarks and history items that show up in a smart folder list are stored elsewhere in another folder and any changes made are applied to the real bookmark or history item.
  • If you remove an entry then the list is shifted up and a new entry that wasn't shown previously is added to show 10 entries.
  • If you add a new bookmark or visit a website then a new item is added at the top and the entry at the bottom disappears from that list.
  • Items that disappear from the list are not gone, but merely do not show up anymore in that list.
  • Actions like copy & paste or delete that you perform on bookmarks in such a list are done on the original bookmark.
