Often, I'll be searching on a certain subject and bookmarking all the
useful pages I find, all into the same folder, and I have to select that
same folder over and over again, which usually involves scrolling down
the list. It'd be nice if there was an option to say "remember the
last folder I created a bookmark in", and that folder would be selected
by default, visible in the list of folders and highlighted.
i'd imagine the simplest most straightforward way would be to simply always remember
where the last one was and put you back there - like every other good chooser/file picker
widget in the world does.
Paul Chen is now taking Bookmarks bugs. For your convenience, you can filter
email notifications caused by this by searching for 'ilikegoats'.
certainly file bookmark should work that way, not so sure add bookmark should
always work that way, marking future

As of the most recent nightly branch builds (for example 20031227) this bug is "partially" fixed, but I think it has been for a while now. By "partially", I mean that the browser remembers the last used "Create In" bookmark folder, but only during the current process. After the browser is closed, it reverts back to the Last Modified folder, but this excludes the root "Bookmarks" folder. It will not remember the root "Bookmarks" folder.
Oddly enough, I think I recall that previous versions (before the new Add Bookmark window was added) DID remember the last used "Create In" folder, but I may be wrong. The reason I say this is because I am now missing it for some reason. Hmm, maybe it was never there, I will try to test previous versions to see.

I was speaking of Firefox in my previous comment. This bug report is not for Firefox, though Firefox does have the same issue. Should a similar bug report be submitted for Firefox?

If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar).
If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state.
