Disable new feature to remember location when adding new bookmark?

Hello, I see that when adding a new bookmark, Firefox now remembers the last used location and sets it by default. I would prefer to keep the previous behaviour of defaulting to "Other bookmarks". Is there a way to disable it please?

Thank you

The only way I can think of to set a specific default folder is by using an autoconfig.cfg file to lock the related pref. Note that this makes it impossible to change this default easily (i.e. you need to edit autoconfig.cfg and restart Firefox).


lockPref("browser.bookmarks.defaultLocation", "unfiled"); //[toolbar|menu|unfiled|guid]

There are reports that the Default Bookmark Folder extension has not been updated to work properly in Firefox 85, so you likely need to wait for an update if you do not want to use autoconfig.cfg.
