Adding :not(#home-button) to .bookmark-item increased the specificity of the selector the amount of an ID selector (yes, this is unfortunately how :not works).

This overrode selectors like .bookmark-item[container][livemark] and the ones for special Places search folders (I'm not sure of the name) e.g. "Most Visited" which don't contain an ID. The "Bookmarks Toolbar" icon in the menu is also affected. I would recommend using another approach that avoids :not(#home-button) such as making the #home button selector use !important or just more specific.

P3- since "Most Visited" is on the bookmark toolbar by default and we used to ship a livemark by default (perhaps not anymore) so it's in primary UI on the bookmark toolbar for many users.

Why is this all/all? AIUI only Linux is affected, is that right?
