create non-sidebar bookmarks in Firefox?

P: n/a
Hello,

is there a way to create regular non-sidebar bookmarks in Firefox with
javascript?
If not, why?
Is there a workaround - maybe with a plugin?

Thanks

Meikel

We can't refer users to CRTL-D since we prepare bookmark urls with
javascript (eliminating parameters like jsessionid and adding others).

what is a "sidebar" bookmark ?
(I have no sidebar in *my* Firefox, it is an user's choice, no?)
a contrario : what is a non-sidebar bookmark ?
If not, why?
Probably because you can't modify an opened window ?
(even by window.resizeTo as user can disable this option)
Probably because you can't interact on a soft's menus ?

And what about my Personal bookmarks bar ?

I do not understand webmasters who want organize user's preferences.

Several questions spring to mind:

1. Why not use standard bookmarks (in the "Bookmarks" menu)?
2. The whole sidebar thing is purely personal choice, surely?
3. Why do you particularly want to use Javascript for it?
4. What makes you think "non-sidebar" bookmarks are "regular"?

Frankly, I'm just puzzled by your question.

It's a datawarehouse web application.
The current url might contain parameters that should not become part
of the bookmark url (jsessionid).
Moreover, we have a dojo dialog in which users can select which
additional parameters should become part of the url, so easiest way is
to create the url with javascript.

Users classically expect bookmarks to open in the current page or tab.
Opening our pages in sidebar makes no sense in layout.
