Firefox for Android how do I sort bookmarks?

Posted

After many failed attempts with add-ons I come to this forum to ask this basic question. How can I sort bookmarks either alphabetically or manually? I don't understand how such a basic function can be missing from any browser????

Also there seems to be some problem in the Firefox "system" where it thinks I'm looking for desktop applications despite the fact that all of my queries are initiated through the Android browser.

Hi

As mentioned, this functionality is not available in Firefox for Android at the present time, but may follow in a future update.

In the meantime, one way to organise your bookmarks (that I use) is to sort them on a desktop copy of Firefox and sync them across using a Firefox Account.

Hi

At the present time, there is no way to auto-sort bookmarks in Firefox for Android. You can manually organise them into folders furtehr to the guide here but sorting bookmarks is a feature that may be included in a future update.

Question owner

It doesn't need to be automatically sorted I just need the ability to manually move the visual position of the bookmark up or down. I might have at most 20 bookmarks that I'll use in my entire life and just having them sorted on the home screen would be very helpful. Creating folders for these just moves the problem to a different location because I presume you cannot sort within a folder either. I suppose you mean to have a separate folder for each individual bookmark but if so, that's not practical. I'm puzzled by this lack of functionality that is such a basic requirement of all browsers since I can remember. Is there some new way of achieving this function nowadays ? Thank you v much for your reply.
