Bookmarks Folder is set to "Other Bookmarks"

Posted

For some reason, I've been getting the "Other Bookmarks" as the default folder each time I'd like to book mark a page? I'd like to have it set back to "Bookmarks Menu". How to do so? Thanks.

I just upgraded to 68.0.1 and new bookmarks default to "other bookmarks". Clearly, that folder is someone's baby, but it should be user-selectable.

"Other Bookmarks" has been the default since version 57 for "Bookmark This Page"/Ctrl+d, and since version 4 for the star button (back when the folder was called Unsorted Bookmarks).

Maybe there will be a configuration option added to Firefox in the future, but for now, the extension listed in cor-el's reply is the best workaround.
