I'd like an addon that auto-updates a bookmark as I browse.
I open a bookmark, browse a bit, and as I get to each new page (even if I end up at a completely different website) the original bookmark gets updated. Bonus points if it could even store the history, but not vital.
Imagine I bookmark [https://xkcd.com/2356/](https://xkcd.com/2356/) which is a webcomic. I might click this bookmark every few weeks, click to the next comic a few times, then close the tab. But my original bookmark is still the same. The addon I'd like would know this was a special bookmark when I opened it. As I clicked through to each new comic, the bookmark would update to each new page. Then after closing the tab, the bookmark would already be where I last was.
I wouldn't want this for every bookmark, only specific *special* ones.

i havent worked much with the bookmark api yet, but i guess
it should be doable to create an add-on which can “track” specific bookmarks and update them on navigation.
I have some time tomorrow and see if i can create a “Proof of Concept”.
Just dont expect anything “fancy”.
Add-On is done, and it works.
I tested it with [xkcd.com](https://xkcd.com) and some other sites.
It is currently Pending Review on the Add-On Hub.
As soon as it it approved, it should be accessable via:
I’ll add the usage description as soonish.
