the more "direct" bookmark editing of Firefox. I'm mainly talking about
the boomarks toolbar (the only kind of bookmarks which I use regularly).
It's a pain to open the bookmarks dialog first and then search the
appropriate bookmark again, everytime I want to make a small change. So
it would be great to have a context menu on each bookmark on the
bookmarks toolbar. Similarly, it would be nice if I could create a new
topic using the context menu of the bookmarks toolbar, because going to
the bookmarks dialog to do this before filing a new bookmark is also
extremely inconvenient. While this doesn't happen often, it often keeps
me from adding a new bookmark, simply because I don't have an
appropriate topic for it yet (I'm a lazy person).
This should all be in the spirit of "direct manipulation", which is
encouraged by the HIG. :)
For example I'd often like to add a "temporary" bookmark, which I only
need while I'm working on a small project or maybe just to find it back
after a reboot, but the inconvenient bookmark handling usually keeps me
from doing it, as it would be more effort than gain. :/ I even catched
myself dragging a link to the desktop instead of filing a bookmark,
because that was more convenient...
Oh, and a nice and easy to install web developers extension probably. :)
