Attached image Mockup
When unchecked, this will disable the dialog for the next time and show a "Saved to Bookmarks!" confirmation instead.

The checkbox should also be present when editing an existing bookmark, such that users can re-check it if they want.

Bug 1459878 - Add "Show editor when saving" checkbox to the Bookmark panel.

There is one thing a bit underspecified, that is whether we want the same behavior for mouse and keyboard interactions. For example in the past we used to not open the panel with the mouse but open it with the keyboard. But I think in general we are moving towards more coherence between those, so I assume it is ok to handle both through this checkbox.

please add a brief comment

is it hidden by default for perf reasons? does it actually matter, since the whole panel is hidden?

Actually I think editBookmarkPanelBottomButtons and editBookmarkPanelContent are hidden just for not showing stale info in case of problems, but this checkbox refers to the panel, more than the bookmark, so it probably doesn't need to be hidden.

I don't think this should be in this overlay, Is there a specific reason to not put it directly into "editBookmarkPanel" in browser.xul?

The overlay here is about stuff shared across all the bookmark panels, while this is specific to the star panel

I uderstand there may be additional aligning needed for that, but I'd still take that hit for better code separation.

same way the handles should probably be in StarUI in browser-places.js

and the labels in browser.dtd
