How to delete all Recently Bookmarked in one go from Firefox 60.0.1?

Posted

I know how to delete a single item of the 'Recently Bookmarked' list. I saw a post explaining how to hide the 'Recently Bookmarked' list (it works fine by the way). But I do not want to hide it. I´d like to delete all items on the list using a single command once in a while.

Recently Bookmarked is a list (smart bookmarks folder) that shows the result of a database query and is not a real folder, so when you remove one item from this list then a new (next) item appears at the bottom of the list until you have removed all the bookmarks. So be cautious with removing items from a smart bookmarks list as this will remove bookmarks stored elsewhere.

If you really want to remove all the bookmarks then you can do this in the Bookmarks Manager (Library) and type a common character like a colon (:) in the search bar.
