☆ Adding Bookmarks:
I am SICK of having to rush & click "Edit" everytime I bookmark something on Firefox for Android‼ I DO NOT CARE HOW IT HAS OR HAS NOT ALWAYS BEEN‼ Either bookmark to the last folder used, open the bookmark "edit" menu or give us a choice to save. I am tired of the "elitism" of people who enjoy being contrary for the sake of trying to establish how long they have been "around". I am 40 years old. I started programming at 5 years old on an Atari 800 XL. I promise you, you have not been around longer than I have, so take that tired argument and gtfo. We should not have to modify anything in order to get this functionality. It should be there by default.

Bookmark management has not long been in Frefox for Android and we are sill working to develop it further, hopefully in a future update.
I notice that you are using an older version of Firefox for Android and I stronly recomend that you update from Google Play to get the latest security and stability updates as well as new features.
Firefox uses the system default of 3.5 seconds for a "long" duration snackbar message. However, Android allows programming a custom value such as 5 seconds.
Android also allows an indefinite bar but then there would need to be a way for the user to dismiss it. In the long run, it could be a good accessibility move to let users choose to manage whether the messages fade out on their own as Google intended, or whether they are always "sticky" so user who wish to can have more time to interact with them.
Either way, this probably needs to go through a UI design discussion before anything will happen, so please don't hold your breath.
To submit suggestions for future Firefox features/products, you could use one or more of the following (depending on whether you want a suggestion box or a discussion):
- Feedback: https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/FirefoxInput/
- Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/
- Twitter: https://twitter.com/firefox
- Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Firefox
You also could file a new bug in the bug tracking system with your proposed change:
I think it might be a change in the
showBookmarkAddedSnackbar() function in the
BookmarkStateChangeDelegate.java file, where currently there is:
SnackbarBuilder.builder(browserApp) .message(R.string.bookmark_added) .duration(Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG) .action(R.string.bookmark_options) .callback(callback) .buildAndShow();
Maybe changing the duration there from the system long default to a higher value would be a useful interim fix. Making it indefinite would require some kind of close button on the bar, so that would be much more involved.
