With the next few upcoming releases, Mozilla Firefox will get a refined bookmarks UI. Developers from Mozilla are working to make it more logical and easy to use for the end user. This will affect the "star" button behavior and the appearance of the bookmarks menu in the browser.
In currently released Firefox versions, when the user clicks the star button in the address bar, the browser bookmarks the opened web address and puts the created bookmark into the folder "Unsorted bookmarks". Sometimes it is hard to find it there later, especially if you never managed the "Unsorted bookmarks" folder. It can get cluttered quickly with a bunch of bookmarks.
Mozilla developers are going to change this and improve the behavior of bookmarks. Starting with Firefox 48, they are going to rename Unsorted bookmarks to "Other bookmarks". They consider the new name as more logical for this folder.
With Firefox 49, the bookmarks menu will contain 5 recent bookmarks, which will make them easy to spot.
While these options do not change the way the user interacts with bookmarks, they can make them more useful and friendly. What is your opinion about these changes? Do you find them useful, especially the recently bookmarked feature?
