In Netscape and Mozilla, I was able to designate one of my bookmarks folders as the default folder into which all new bookmarks go. (It showed up with the NEW_BOOKMARK_FOLDER parameter in the HTML.) This doesn't seem to be possible in Firefox. I wish it was. The Add Bookmarks dialog always comes up with the option menu reset to the root -- it does not even remember the last value I selected in it, so I have to re-select my "New Stuff" folder every time.

Looks like this (=it does not remember the last value selected) was done intentional, see Bug 255129. So lets stick with the idea of a default folder here.
sorry for bugspam, long-overdue mass reassign of ancient QA contact bugs, filter on "beltznerLovesGoats" to get rid of this mass change
bug 423617 is newer and places related, duping there
