Hi there!

I would is there any way to have Firefox search bar history prioritize subdirectories? I typically only visit these subdirectory URLs and not the main one.

For example, when I go to reddit I would want to visit "https://www.reddit.com/r/all/", but Firefox puts "https://www.reddit.com/" at the top of the list when I type in "red".

The same happens for sites such as Discord. I would like "https://discordapp.com/app" to be the first in the list when I type, but "https://discordapp.com/".

I have tried to search on this forum and wasn't able to find anything. I have also added a bookmark to the subdirectories and bumped up "places.frecency.bookmarkVisitBonus" to 5000. However, the basic URL remains at the top of the suggestions.

You can force searching for a bookmark by starting with a '*'.
