I've been a Firefox user for over 17 years now and it's been my default browser for a long time. I've got a lot of bookmarks and I feel it's time Fx gave it a good revamp. I use the keyword feature a lot to quickly open website that I bookmark frequently use.

Currently I need to bookmark a site, then go to the Bookmark Manager, find the bookmark, then add the bookmark.

It would be great to be able to add the Keyword function in Bookmark this Page (Ctrl+D) dialog itself. Probably just under the 'tags', this would make it super easy for those using the feature.

Another feature that would make bookmarking more intuitive wold be the ability to search folders (or Bookmark Location), also while bookmarking.

Here's a mockup:

And for your second point, there are a couple similar ideas that have already been posted to Connect:

Bookmark search should show folders as well 

searching for a bookmark - show the folder where the existing bookmarks are found

I was about to suggest this myself.

I too use keywords heavily for frequently visited sites. Being able to set it when adding the bookmark would be super useful!

I was going to create this suggestion and I found this one.

Keywords are one of the best feature of Firefox. Not only it acts as shortcuts to your mostly used webpages but it also supports placeholder like %s that your add in your URL. You then type your keyword followed by a string and the URL will be built from your bookmark and this string.

Example: to quickly go to an SAP Notes, I've created this bookmark


When I type in the URL Bar:


URL becomes:


This so so useful!

To do the same with some other browsers, you need to create custom search engines...

This is one of Firefox best feature to me !

Add this keyword field on the CTRL+D pop-up please!
