favicon collector - search for those bookmarks that havnt a favicon yet - and collect it

not all websites have favicons, but they help in the bookmarks to find what you are looking for more quickly so... let me have a function to let firefox go through my bookmarks and open secretly in a background window all those pages that do not have a favicon stored already, wait for them to load, and go to the next after the favicon has loaded and been saved in the bookmarks

Directly access bookmarks when opening new tab on mobile

When FF 79 on mobile came with substantial changes to the UI, unfortunately the possibility to directly access one's bookmarks when opening a new tab was gone. And I would really love to see it back. If you're using the new features (pinned sites, collections) on mobile, good on you, but if you sync your bookmarks across your devices it's the last thing you need. I always found the decision to remove the access to your bookmarks (and history, for that matter) when opening a new tab on...

Dedicated Pocket Button in Customize Panel

Having the option to add or remove a button dedicated to accessing the Pocket library, same as the button to add to Pocket, would be great. Having a bookmark on the toolbar is not enough for situations in which the bookmarks toolbar is full and bookmarks do not appear on a smaller screen or when the toolbar is set to only appear on new tabs

Consistent Bookmark Action Location & Label

When organizing entries in the bookmarks bar, the edit (rename) and delete actions are hard to find in the contextual menu. The missing consistency to other applications requires the user to read all context menu entries in order to find the correct one. They are located above cut, copy & paste. In many other applications like Windows explorer, rename and delete are located below the cut, copy & paste group. I suggest moving the actions edit and delete down to make them easier to...

Mobile - make a device shortcut to a website in private browsing

Right now I can make a shortcut on Android to a website. Clicking that will open the website in the Firefox app in normal or private browsing, whichever is currently open in the app. Also right now I can make a shortcut to open the Firefox app in private browsing. It opens to the home page, not a specific website. I would like to be able to tell a website shortcut which mode to open in: normal or private browsing. Use case: I watch YouTube videos in private browsing to listen to...

Open multiple bookmarks from folder with middle click

I would like to be able to open as many bookmarks in a folder as I need by middle clicking to open them into new tabs. I am not opening all of them in the folder, only a select few. In the latest FireFox, I can only open one at a time with middle click and it closes the folder dropdown each time. I found a setting in about:config "browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground" and thought it was the instant switching to the newly opened tab that closed the dropdown but it does not. I am able to...
