The Other Bookmarks(Другие Закладки) tab just appears in the fast bookmarks bar (look image). I tried everything. How I can delete it?

Hi, firstly, be aware that if Other Bookmarks is empty, it will not show. However, to remove it from the toolbar, type about:config into the address bar, press Enter and accept any warning, then copy and paste the following into the search box browser.toolbars.bookmarks.2h2020 Now on the search result, click the Toggle button at the right-hand end to change from True to False. You must then restart Firefox to implement the change. (Removing it from the toolbar will not remove it from your usual bookmarks).

Note that from Firefox 85 (scheduled for release 26th January) an option will be added to the right click on the toolbar menu, which will also allow you to add/remove Other Bookmarks.

I searched Duck Duck Go and found your page here after other search disappointments. Your directions were clear and easy to follow, especially for an old guy like me.

My problem was annoying because I did not authorize the change to my bookmarks toolbar adding a folder, "Other Bookmarks" which was impossible to remove using traditional methods...right click and "delete" was not a choice, neither was "cut or properties." And yes, my minor problem was fixed.

Edit. The "Other Bookmarks" folder reference above contained roughly 50-75 bookmarks which were mostly old and not recently used websites.

Thanks again,

MM
