Right-click that bookmark and select Properties, then un-check the preference for Load this bookmark in the sidebar, and then click Save.

Using JavaScript buttons on web pages for "Bookmark this Page" causes that preference to be selected when saving the bookmark in that manner. So, don't use those buttons, use the "Bookmark this Page" feature that is built into Firefox instead.
