I keep seeing complaints about the impossibility of deleting Firefox 3 bookmarks, but there isn’t a problem; a simple right-click – delete does the job, as it always did. So I got to thinking – it there a problem with terminology here? Is it, in fact, the dismal Awesome Bar that’s causing the problem?
This, the drop-down menu below the address bar, used to contain the URLs typed into the bar. It still does, to a degree, but it also displays websites accessed by other means and some website URLs it shows for no good reason at all that I can fathom.
You can delete them, but they’ll be replaced by bookmarks entries, before eventually coming back.
There is nothing you can do about this. Awesome Bar is marginally useful, mostly a pain in the butt – Mozilla know this and say they have no intention of doing anything about it, because they’re confident we’ll all come to love it. Which is the most egregiously arrogant bullshit, and the best thing you can do with the crappy AB is just ignore it.
