Sorry, that is the new "default" for the Library. A change that came with Firefox 46.

So there is no way to change it?

Sorry, I don't know if that can be changed.

Doesn't affect my use of Firefox as I access my bookmarks via the Bookmarks Sidebar using { Ctrl + B }. And I hide the "paired button" for Bookmarks on the Navigation Toolbar; I save new bookmarks via drag'n'drop into the Bookmarks Sidebar or use { Ctrl + D }. I rarely even open the Library window.

You can consider to use an extension that allows you to assign a JavaScript command to a keyboard shortcut. This code will open the Bookmarks Manager (Library) with the Bookmarks Menu selected:

  • PlacesCommandHook.showPlacesOrganizer('BookmarksMenu');
