(4 keywords, Whiteboard: [missing UI since landing of Bug 1145063])

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: Regressed since 40.

Since landing of Bug 1145063,
No way to control keyword search url and keyword on Aurora40.0a2 and Nightly41.0a1.
This should be resolved before beta cycle at least. 
Otherwise, Bug 1145063 should be backed out.
It's still possible to remove all bookmarks pointing to a keyword, to remove the keyword. In most cases that just means removing 1 bookmark.
How to find all keywords: just search for "%s" in the bookmarks sidebar or in the library. This basically provides a UI already, it's just not exposed as a selectable entry.

We should surely do this, but considered 95% of users have no keywords, and 3% has less than 5, it's not critical.
Tracked for 40 and 41.
We don't have the resources to fix this now.
Component: General → Bookmarks & History
Keywords: user-doc-needed
Seems like a minor regression. Not blocking the release for this, untracking.
Priority: -- → P3

That only finds keywords with an argument, not ones without.
Keywords: qawanted
Severity: normal → S3
