For addding to your prefered folder when creating it you have the option to chose your destination folder (by default unsorted bookmarks)
Also you can DOUBLECLICK the STAR for it to show you the option.
But you must select the folder every time you create a new one. (unless you have an old firefox version or other addon that handles your add bookmark button)
You can also use this extension: AddBookmarkHere

what version of firefox are you using? (if you have any bookmark related addon you might have to press star twice)
I have 52.0.1 (32-bit)
here is what I get when I press the star

Thats a beta, maybe you have found a bug,
Also it is weird why you have 2 stars instead of one, are you sure you dont have any bookmark related addons?
please try it with no addons installed. also try double clicking.

normally one star, that was just an illustration of what happens when I click the star.  Normally I just see this:

Normal View
In terms of addons that may have an effect on bookmarks, I have IETab and the Zotero plugin.

ADDED NOTE: With ALL addons disabled it acts correctly.

I figured it out - IETab is the problem.  Maybe the OP has the same problem?
