Adding a bookmark by CTRL+D without opening the bookmark editor

Adding a bookmark by CTRL+D without opening the bookmark editor

When I add a new bookmark with the CTRL+D, the bookmark editor opens.
Is it possible to disable the opening of the bookmark editor, as when adding bookmarks with the star button in the navigation toolbar?
about:config -> browser.bookmarks.editDialog.showForNewBookmarks;false - works only when you add bookmarks with the star button, but not CTRL+D.

Yeah but if you do that you break established behavior. Just use the StarUI for unconditional bookmarking.

And if you are using the keyboard anyway, just hit Enter to close it. Minimal effort.
Not like you can have a workflow where you can rapidly CTRL-D multiple-pages anyway!

But in FirefoxPortable_84. 0. 2_russian about:config -> browser.bookmarks.editDialog.showForNewBookmarks;false works both StarUI and CTRL+D!

It would be very convenient for me just like that - interesting pages - CTRL-D, CTRL-W, not liked - CTRL-W

Yeah which means Firefox has broken established behaviour.
Established behaviour is that the StarUI doesn't pop up the edit box and Ctrl+D does. By linking both to the same pref it's all-or-nothing and will break one or the other.
The pref was added to make the edit box pop up on clicking the star UI. To keep it separate and add this to save a keystroke in "Ctrl+D, Enter, Ctrl+W" it'd need a separate pref.

Pale Moon is not Firefox and never will be again.

That is, in principle, it is possible to do it, but it will not be soon, if you do it at all

Anything is -possible-, but the question is simply if you think that this will magically be happening for one person's specific workflow "optimization" or not.
FTR: changing this for the StarUI had clear usability improvements as clicking a second time was not very intuitive of an action or easily discoverable. Confirming the entry of the bookmark by Enter/Done is straightforward.
