I can't create a keyword search bookmark with the search placeholder in the URL (e.g. http://%s.mozilla.org is not allowed)
I am using Firefox 67.0b3 (64-bit). I normally have keyword searches for URLs where the URL can change (e.g. http://%s.mozilla.org) but in the bookmarks manager, it won't allow me to create this bookmark. Also any existing keyword search bookmarks that had this do not work.
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:67.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/67.0
Wow, what? Surprisingly, that works in Firefox 66. And not in Developer Edition (67 beta).
I assume someone decided to validate host names as they are saved as bookmarks. Not a crazy idea, but with an unfortunate side effect. I don't know how to track down the relevant bug, so perhaps it is simplest to file a new one asking that %s be allowed in bookmark host names.
Thanks, I created https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1539973 to track this.
