Hello Максим,

You can enter this URL in the address bar (and bookmark it) :

chrome://browser/content/places/places.xhtml

Does that work for you  ?

And how to make this URL (chrome: //browser/content/places/places.xhtml) always open by clicking the "show all bookmarks" button?

Maybe you missed the part where I said : "and bookmark it" (?)

I have changed my bookmarks menu, and I get that URL when I click on "Other Bookmarks" .....


Maybe you'll like these too :

chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml

chrome://browser/content/places/historySidebar.xhtml

If you have "Word" you could also copy and paste that URL
in a Word document ......

Note that you may encounter issues with using the chrome URI to open places.xhtml in a tab.
