My suggestions in this regard, FWIW:

1. Don't use `view-buffer-other-frame'.
    Select the buffer, and not just read-only. Jumping to a bookmark
    typically puts you at its location (hence select), and the buffer is
    typically not put in a read-only mode. IOW, do the equivalent of
    this, or similar:

    (let ((pop-up-frames  t)) (bookmark-jump-other-window bookmark)

2. Don't use `F' as the key binding in the bookmark-list buffer.
    `F' is more often used for files than for frames. Maybe use `5'.
    (I use `J 5' in Bookmark+. `J' is a prefix for the jump commands
    in the bookmark-list buffer. The `5' is from `C-x 5' bindings for
    other-frame. I bind the command to `C-x 5 B' and `C-x j 5' globally.
    `C-x j' is a global prefix key for bookmark jump commands.)
