Bug Description

In the browser there appears to be no way to edit a bookmark's URL. This is troublesome when you want to bookmark the root of a website.

Example:

I want to bookmark https://www.openstreetmap.org, but when I visit that website, I get redirected to a URL that embeds the last location I looked at, e.g.: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/53.19689/5.79632. This means I cannot directly bookmark https://www.openstreetmap.org, but have to edit the bookmark URL afterwards. Currently there does not seem to be a way to do so.

Expected behaviour:

In the bookmark menu dragging the bookmark to the right already displays the delete function. It would probably be intuitive to add an edit function on drag-left.
