One of the things I love about Firefox is how simple it is to bookmark a site. I have been using the new two step bookmarking for a few weeks now and I have come to realize I hate having to make the second tap.

I don't have any solid step forward other than to ask Ian and Arun to consider different flows. Maybe make it a bookmark by default and show the sub-menu to allow users to move the check mark.

Thanks Kevin. You aren't the first person to have mentioned this, we'll give it some thought.

It seems like if we've marked this for 30, the safest play would be to revert back to what we had before. So, no submenu. 

I still want to find ways to increase the usage of some of our lesser known features. But I concede that this particular interaction may not be the best approach.
Brian, can you please back out bug 965453?

This effectively backs out bug 965453, bug 976006, and bug 977669.

Back out bookmark submenu

I am sad to see the good cleanup parts of these patches get backed out, heck I am not 100% sure I want this backed out at all.

I am resigned to back it out so we do not put pressure on Ian or Dev & QA to get this fixed before the trains move on.

Maybe you could file a bug to add back some of the refactor parts?

Let's get some testing on this so we don't happen to find some bustage late in Aurora cycle. Please NI or qawanted this as soon as it lands so we get eyes on it.
