The Bookmarks UI is different in Firefox and Seamonkey, so this isn't a dup of a
Seamonkey bug.

the one issue with this is that we don't want this for normal users.  Second, if
you're creating a bookmark from a search field, it does allow you to choose the
keyword already, so this is only really needed if you're just looking to add a
keyword for a "normal" bookmark, which is pretty much an edge case.  Still, it
bears some examination, but after 1.0, when I want to take a look at how we add
bookmarks.

Given that there's already a sort of "advanced" or "expanded" mode (when you
click the widget to view the bookmarks sub-folders), I figured that it could be
something that is only exposed there.

Huh, it doesn't seem like an edge case to me.  I guess it's a matter of working
style, but I only ever do "normal" bookmarks, and very often want to add a
keyword when I do so.  Hence my filing of this enhancement request...
The extension OpenBook (http://update.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=42)
provides a Keyword field. It doesn't yet provide fields for other bookmark
properties.

Add Bookmark Here 2 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3880) also does this.
