URL for 'Show All Bookmarks' & 'History'

I used to use chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul to display All Bookmarks in a tab (instead of in the sidebar or a Library pop-up window).

Similarly, I also used to use chrome://browser/content/history/history-panel.xul to display my full History in a tab.

Obviously neither of these old paths work any more (since Firefox 57).

What are the new equivalents of these two paths, so that I can achieve the same effect in the current Firefox?

Chosen solution

In a recent version (around Firefox 68) most of the files with a .xul extension were renamed with a .xhtml extension to reflect their evolution from XUL to HTML. So you could try this one for the "Library window" document:

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

I think the other one was for the History sidebar. That now has a different name:

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

Note that functionality of these panels may be impaired when opened outside of their context. Viewing and using links still should work, but edits might not work properly.

You can encounter issues when you want to create a new folder, moving a bookmark to another folder may not work as well.

Thanks, jscher2000.

Both work exactly as I wanted.
