Windows 7: Firefox Bookmarks

26 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1
Firefox Bookmarks


At present, to access all of my Bookmarks I have to click the arrow at the end
of the Toolbar.
There is a way of enlarging this Toolbar so that I can see ALL of my Bookmarks
without having to click that arrow.
Advice on this would be appreciated. I cannot see to reference to it in any of
the Mozilla Firefox tutorials.

What version of Firefox are you running? In version 11, there are several ways to access your bookmarks. Personally, I prefer to add a bookmarks toolbar to the toolbar area of Firefox and add folders for different bookmark categories:

Another way is to add a bookmarks button to your toolbar. This opens up your bookmarks in a sidebar:

And, finally, there is the keyboard shortcut, CTRL+SHIFT+B.

I put my most often used bookmarks on the bookmarks toolbar immediately below the address bar.

Then I have all bookmarks available from a bookmarks menu next to file/edit/view/history.

I can't remember how I moved bookmarks from the right to the top of the screen, but it isn't difficult--probably a right click and then choosing from a dropdown menu.

you can have your bookmarks display on the left of your browser window ,
to do so you need to right click at the top of the firefox window and select customize ,in the new pane that opens drag the bookmarks button to where you want it on the toolbar.
clicking the button will open and close the bookmarks sidebar.
an alternate way to have the bookmark sidebar showing is to click view/sidebar/bookmarks.
i prefer to have the button as you can open and close it with a click.

note: there are two bookmark buttons, one has a dropdown arrow beside it and one is just a star,its the second one you want as the button with the dropdown opens a pop up bookmarks list that dissapears when you click in the browser again.
