Disable or erase "Recently Bookmarked"
I want to erase or preferably disable the "Recently Bookmarked" functionality when you go to the bookmarks part of the library. How do I do this? I don't see anything in the Support, despite doing searches using several different search terms. It is a strange thing to have without being able to erase it or disable it, especially since bookmarks saved during "private window" searches show up there.

Enter about:config in the URL bar and set browser.library.activity-stream.enabled = false.
The menu is still populated, and I bookmarked another page and it showed up in Recently Bookmarked.
I restarted Firefox and checked Advanced Preferences. It shows that setting as "false" but still allows the Recently Bookmarked to populate and add new bookmarks.
Ah, you want to remove the second list. I don't think it's removable. You can only remove the whole Library and add Bookmarks and History instead, by using the ≡ -> Customize menu.
Well, that explains why I can't remove either Recently Bookmarked or the Library itself. I still think it is a weird oversight that it is so hardcoded in a browser that represents itself as a leading privacy guardian. Thanks, Ty.
You cane Right click and delete the icon that shows recently bookmarked, then go to custom settings and add the "star above horizontal parenthesis" icon > show your bookmarks, then drag wherever you want it.
