I've found this "File bookmarks" in several menus, but I still don't know what
is it good for. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Choose "file bookmarks..." from the bookmarks menu.
2.Drool, looking at the mysterious window and fear it will file your bookmarks'
corners limiting them to reasonable size.

I've looked in help and release notes (that's about all the help that's
available in the browser for a common user) and didn't find the item even
mentioned. Import/Export - yes. File - no.

Summary: "File bookmarks" needs better help → File Bookmarks dialog needs a help button
Version: unspecified → 1.0 Branch
A button in dialog is not what I meant - just mentioning the menu function in
the help file (Apparently it was finally added, under "Creating New Bookmarks"
in "My sidebar" help, so you may freely mark this as "resolved fixed").

It's just the unfortunate wording of "File bookmark" which due to multiple
meanings of the word "file" is very obscure. I think plain renaming the item to
"add (create?) new bookmark" would clarify things and describe the function much
better. (but this should be submitted as a separate bug, shouldn't it?)

"Bookmark > File Bookmark..." menu item still there.

Agreeing with comment 3 that "Create/New Bookmark..." may be better.

Agree, for consistency File Bookmark should be renamed to New Bookmark to match appearing window title
