how to keep "last used folder" active when making a new bookmark?

When you go to make a new bookmark, the "Page Bookmarked" dialog screen appears. It shows the folder that the bookmark will be placed into - by default, the top-level folder, usually "Bookmarks Menu". It used to be the case (at least up to version 12) than if you expand this, it will default to the last used folder within your bookmarks. It doesn't do that anymore - it stays "Bookmarks Menu" and I have to scroll all the way down and look forthe folder I want to use... Any way to fix this? I don't want to keep scrolling when I need to place several bookmarks into the same folder. Maybe through about:config? Thanks in advance.

I can not say I had noticed that change.

Not sure about a fix,but there is a very simple workaround:
I often bookmark by clicking on the bookmark star. Doing that does behave as you describe, and remember. It has two sets of arrows,

  • the double one at the end of the input field lists recent folders.
  • The single down arrow one to the right lists all bookmarks.

John, thank you for the suggestions. That helps to a large extent, although it is still about twice as long to place the bookmark than it took me before. Could I ask then two followup questions: - how can I edit the number of recent folders in the drop down list? - when I click on the star it just goes yellow, doesn't bring up any dialogs - is that how it should be or not?

The recent folders is just that it displays the recent folders used.

The other one may be modified if you have nested subfolders, it will remember the which folders were expanded and which were closed.

Not sure if there are any other work arounds, and I am as yet not sure when the change was made.
