The Library is a neglected part of Firefox that very clearly combines decades-old technology with new design specs and icons. Unfortunately, it therefore looks like a frankensteined-together part of Firefox that could really, really use a facelift because it catches you by surprise with its window-based nature when you try to manage your history or bookmarks.

This vital piece of Firefox should be rewritten to be part of a tab, like every other part of Firefox. Modernize it! 🙂

copying the comment that i made on reddit:

the Library, the place where it shows your History, Downloads, Tags and Bookmarks, which can be seen when you open one of these aforementioned, can be accessed in a tab by accessing `chrome://browser/content/places/places.xhtml`. you can even create a bookmark to open that (which I do), but it got me wondering why opening in a tab is not the default. I would love to have it opening in a tab and maybe an overhaul of it's UI (which is a tad dated and doesn't fit well with current firefox UI, but that's optional).

 

I hope that there is some update on this someday (ideally soon)
