If I click on certain books in my WL and then use that hold button at the top, will I keep my place in the FIFO line?

I know on your bookshelf there are two types of hold, one is vacation that lets you keep your place in line, and the other hold does NOT.  are there also two types of holds for WL books?

Yes, you keep your place in line when putting individual holds on wishlist books.

You will keep moving up the line and when you get to #1 it'll just keep skipping you until you take it off hold.

For wishlist books, yes.  The hold keeps your place in line, you move up when the line moves up then you hold at #1 until you unhold (unless someone ahead of you is also on hold).
