Where can I find the Preferences for the Most Visited bookmarks folder on my Bookmarks Toolbar? I want to add more.

Posted

In the past, I was able to add up to 15 bookmarks, but when I downloaded Firefox for my new laptop in January, and moved my files from my old computer, this folder only shows 10, and I can't find where to change it.

Such a smart folder query will only work as a bookmark and you need to close and restart Firefox.
After a restart the icon should change to a smart folder icon and work as such.

You can create a new bookmark and set the maxResults variable value to suit your needs

  • Name: Most Visited
  • Location: place:redirectsMode=2&sort=8&maxResults=10

You probably need to close and restart Firefox to make the folder work as a smart folder.

Hi,

I tried that, but it should be a folder in the toolbar (not a bookmark) that opens with a list of the top visited sites. Currently, it reverted back to 10 from 15 on my old computer after I downloaded Firefox to my new laptop in January and moved my files from my old computer to my laptop.

When I created a new bookmark as you suggested, it opened up a window (not a list in a folder), and I got this message: Firefox can't find the file at place:redirectsMode=2&sort=8&maxResults=20. However, I'm not looking for a window to open. I already have a "Most Visited" folder with the 10 most-visited sites. I just want to increase the number of sites on the list in that folder.

Thanks, Marsha
