restore the default Smart Bookmarks Folders in Firefox

If you, like me, only recently got around to downloading the latest version of Firefox then opened up the bookmarks which look slightly different and thought to yourself “I don’t need that, or that” and deleted a few folders before giving them a fighting chance only to discover later on how useful the Recently Bookmarked folder would be if only you hadn’t deleted it, especially in light of how easy the new one-click star add a bookmark thingy is, but you discovered those things go into the Unsorted Bookmarks folder which you can only get to when you go into the Organize Bookmarks window instead of at the bottom of the pile (which actually makes a sort of sense when it comes to not letting your bookmarks get too cluttery) then you discovered that resetting the bookmarks in Safe Mode and importing your backup doesn’t make the Recently Bookmarked folder reappear, then you might find this page helpful: Restore the default Smart Bookmarks Folders.
