At one point I had a bookmark that took me to my bookmarks library, one that worked like any other webpage using a chrome:// link. Well I accidentally deleted it and now can't get it back. I've tried making a bookmark that goes to chrome://bookmarks and chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul, but neither work. All the other questions I've found about this are from 2013 or earlier.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hello cooleosis,

The "xul" changed to "xhtml" with the latest update.

So, now you'll have to enter this URL in the address bar :

chrome://browser/content/places/places.xhtml

The same goes for these :

chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml

chrome://browser/content/places/historySidebar.xhtml

Does that work for you ?

Note that you may encounter issues with using the chrome URI to open places.xhtml in a tab.
