How to Organize Firefox Bookmarks

How to Organize Firefox Bookmarks

TECH TIP

The Bookmarks Library window gives you a tidy place to sort, file, rearrange and otherwise manage the shortcuts to your favorite places on the web.

Q. When I first started using Firefox on my computer, I put a bunch of bookmarks into bookmark folders in the program, but I can never find them. How do I move some of these on the Bookmarks tool bar?

A. You can see all your Firefox browser bookmarks at once — and rearrange them — by opening the program’s Bookmarks Library window. Go to the Bookmarks menu and choose Show All Bookmarks or click the Library icon in the Firefox tool bar. (If you do not see the Library icon, which looks like a leaning stack of books, you can add it to the tool bar by following Mozilla’s instructions.)

The Library window displays all of your bookmarks, no matter where they have been saved. From the list in the window, open the folder where the bookmarks are currently stored. When you click the folder, the middle section of the window displays the bookmarks inside.

Click a bookmark from the list, drag it to the left side of the window and drop it on the Bookmarks Toolbar icon to relocate it. You can select multiple bookmarks to move at once by holding down the Control or Command key as you click to select your favorites.

Once you have relocated the designed bookmarks into the Bookmarks bar in the browser window, you can change their order by dragging each one to a new position, either in the Bookmarks bar itself or in the Library window.
