When I open firefox, I click on "bookmarks". This opens "desktop bookmarks". When I click on that, it opens 3 others: Bookmark menu Bookmark toolbar Other bookmarks If I click on "bookmark toolbar", it opens "bookmarks". After all of this, I click on bookmarks and it FINALLY opens my bookmark list. Why do I have to go through so many links just to open my list? What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it to only show bookmarks/my list?

Thanks.

Adding a bookmark to the home screen

Firefox 87.0.0-rc.1

I have a bookmark that I created to an online Bible. I have to create and edit the bookmark, because as soon as I open it, it redirects me to whatever my previous reading location was. The URL I end up with might look like this.

https://www.esv.org/Matthew+8/

Where the URL I want bookmarked needs to just be "https://www.esv.org/".

So I create and edit the bookmark, I have what I want. Whenever I open it, it redirects me to the correct last location.

Now I want to put this bookmark on my home screen. How do I do it?

I see where I can "Add to Home screen" in the menu, but this nets me a home screen button with the entire URL that will always return me to that specific location, not the edited URL that I want.

I hope that makes sense. Thanks.

Hi,

I've a bookmark of type http://forum.example.com/forum/search.php?do=getnew When opened it changes to https://forum.example.com/forum/search.php?searchid=(everytime different id)

I want to pin the first url to top sites, but I can only add "open" urls, so I get always the second url added to top sites - and I see no way to edit the top site's url. So is there a way to add the bookmark to top sites directly without opening it?

Can you please help?

Kind regards, Thomas

How do I add an enhancement request for Firefox Android? For better UX, I'd like to request a confirmation dialog before deleting a collection item. Those X's are really tiny and easy to delete the wrong link (as demonstrated by fitz law). Thanks!
