I would like to have more than 10 entries in the recently bookmarked folder

I'd like more than 10 entries in the recently bookmarked folder - the answers i'm seeing aren't really helpful as they assume you're going to type in some code somewhere (but never specifies where) - surely there must be some sort of intuitive solution for us right brained firefox users out there ? Because frankly I have absolutely no idea what people are talking about in the answers provided.

Re: I would like to have more than 10 entries in the recently bookmarked folder

Two simple ways:

  1. from the Bookmarks Toolbar
    • right-click on "Recently Bookmarked" folder and choose "Properties"
    • in the Properties window, Location space, scroll right until you see "&maxResults=10" and change the 10 to your desired number, click Save.
  2. from the Library window
    • open the Library window with Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks or CTRL+SHIFT+B
    • left-click on "Recently Bookmarked" folder in the left column
    • in the right panel in the Location space, scroll right until you see "&maxResults=10" and change the 10 to your desired number, close the Library window
  3. NOTE - The number of items may not change until you add new bookmarks
  4. CAUTION: be careful to change nothing else, otherwise that Smart Bookmark will no longer function properly.

Other - For security fixes, you should check you Plugins and update as needed.

  1. Check your Plugins - https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/
  2. Shockwave Flash 11.3 r300
  3. Next Generation Java Plug-in 1.6.0_22 for Mozilla browsers

Meaning of "Im afraid this doesnt work - I have the latest version of firefox and these methods suggested dont work"

What doesn't work? Can you provide further explanation of what you did? Or explanation of what did not work?

Diagnosing a computer problem from a distance is, at best, difficult. Both parties must supply complete and accurate information to reach a resolution.

You won't be able to perform the above posted steps unless you have code in userChrome.css to have the location field visible.

You will have to create a new smart folder and set the maxResults value to suit your needs. You may need to close and restart Firefox to make such a folder work.

  • Name: Most Visited
    Location: place:redirectsMode=2&sort=8&maxResults=10
  • Name: Recently Bookmarked
    Location: place:folder=BOOKMARKS_MENU&folder=UNFILED_BOOKMARKS&folder=TOOLBAR&queryType=1&sort=12&excludeItemIfParentHasAnnotation=livemark%2FfeedURI&maxResults=10&excludeQueries=1
  • Name: Recent Tags
    Location: place:type=6&sort=14&maxResults=10

I have no idea where userchrome.css is unfortunately.

The userChrome file is not important.

You only need to create the above posted bookmark and set the location to this place query.

  • place:folder=BOOKMARKS_MENU&folder=UNFILED_BOOKMARKS&folder=TOOLBAR&queryType=1&sort=12&excludeItemIfParentHasAnnotation=livemark%2FfeedURI&maxResults=20&excludeQueries=1

Re: I would like to have more than 10 entries in the recently bookmarked folder

Hello. I found this thread while looking for a solution to this problem. Here's the solution I used:

  • Go to "Show All Bookmarks"
  • Back Up Bookmarks to a JSON file.
  • Edit with a good text editor (I used Notepad++)
  • Search and replace maxResults=10 to maxResults=20 to change each of the smart bookmarks.
  • Restore the backup from that JSON file.
