How to edit url when adding a new bookmark

Posted

In Firefox 23, I can't modify the url anymore when adding a new bookmark : the edit box is gone. I now have to use the bookmark editor. But it is too long and complicated.

Is there another to do it as quickly as before ?

Is this possible to re-enable this feature, be it a config option or an extension ?

Thanks

You can make extra fields visible in the Edit This Bookmark pop-up with some code in userChrome.css

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the Firefox profile folder.


#editBMPanel_locationRow,
#editBMPanel_keywordRow {
visibility: visible !important;
-moz-box-align: center !important;
}

More selectors:

#editBMPanel_descriptionRow
#editBMPanel_loadInSidebarCheckbox

You can also use Ctrl + D when saving a bookmark, to show where you want it at.

The question is about editing the URL (location) field of the bookmark and not where it gets saved.
You would have to open the bookmark in the sidebar or in the Bookmarks/History Manager (Library) to edit the location field.

Editing userChrome.css solved my problem. Thanks !
