With the addition of kidfox, we now have two (sub)sets of bookmarks. our bookmarks java hardcodes which bookmarks entries are default where[1]. It would be much better if this were configurable.

Do you have any ideas about how we should do this? Could this be a mentor bug?

My put would be to make default bookmarks like suggested sites, try to reduce the number of systems we have for configuring fennec. That would involve build system changes and a sizable refactor. It might be too much for even a diamond bug.

A less ambitious might be to just replace the java code with a startsWith() for default_ , restricted_ and rename entries to match that scheme. That could be a mentor-able bug.
