Follow up of bug #1120110 to standardize default output folder for adding bookmarks by various methods, even by using "Bookmark This Link" item in hyperlink menu
Flags: needinfo?(mak77)
Forwarding to bbell, should be also unify the Bookmark This Link destination, or should we leave it alone?

All the bookmarking operations are currently going to unfiled, apart from Bookmark This Link and Bookmarks This Frame that are going to the menu.

I think we should unify them to unfiled bookmarks, then we can look into bug 1412263 to provide an option to change the default globally. Whether that option should be exposed an a Preference or hidden in about:config is still TBD.
