Firefox is a really great browser, I use it since the 90s when it was called Netscape, but I think the Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu, Homepage settings, Shortcuts and Firefox Sync needs an overhaul.

Bookmarks on Firefox Desktop and Mobile is cluttered, e.g. on Firefox Mobile(Android/iOS) it requires 4 taps to dive into the Bookmark entries of Bookmarks Toolbar synced(from Firefox Desktop), that's really cumbersome.

Quick raw ideas...

  1. Refactor and rename the "Bookmarks Toolbar" to "Shortcuts", adopt the current Shortcuts design, and make it also accessible on Firefox Mobile.
  2. Refactor and rename the "Bookmarks Menu" to simply to "Bookmarks", and make it also accessible on Firefox Mobile.
  3. Firefox Desktop and Firefox Mobile should use the same new Shortcuts and Bookmarks structure, and point each to the same counterpart location for cross Desktop and Mobile compatibility.
  4. On top of that, it would be great to have a "one tap/click" icon solution to access the Bookmarks on Firefox Desktop and Mobile.
  5. It would be great to be able to set the new Shortcuts as Homepage, to open it on existing and new Tabs
  6. It would be great to be able to have a non-row-limited scroll-able Shortcuts entry support on Firefox Mobile and Desktop.
  7. The new Bookmarks and Shortcuts should support add/edit/delete and ascending/descending/manual(dragdrop) sorting of entries, and also continue to support sub-folders for power users.
  8. Mozilla Sync should be adapted to sync between the new equal and counterpart location of Shortcuts(ex. Bookmarks Toolbar) and Bookmarks(ex. Bookmark Menu) between Firefox Mobile and Desktop.
