From reading the extension page for "bookmarks to desktop" I'm not sure what it does. However whatever it did seems to be broken according to the comments on the extension.

Arranging bookmarks is not possible in Android. You can set up Firefox Sync to manage bookmarks on the desktop side. The changes will sync back to Firefox for Android.


Question owner

I discovered that my Saved Password Editor 2.7.1 add-on lists one saved site's host name as: chrome://bookmarktodesktop. And site as: chrome://bookmarktodesktop (Authentication).

Why is this, if bookmarktodesktop isn't functioning? Any ideas? Should i delete this entry? Might it mess something up?
