someone kindly offered me a new-to-me computer and claimed that they had transferred everything to the newish one. Well, what they did was take my umpteen gazillion desktop shortcuts and place them all in "bookmarks menu". EEK.`
That's way too many. So I exported them to an html file/link/firefox internet shortcut on the desktop called "bookmarks.html". Worked swell.
However, the bookmarks menu went along. It no longer appears under"bookmarks" on the menu bar.
I was able to get it onto the toolbar. (star in tray).
If I click on that, and then select "bookmarks sidebar", what appears in the sidebar is perfect. Just like new.
But on the menu bar, on the dropdown menu under "bookmarks", no "bookmarks menu".
I can live with this BUT I really don't want to BECAUSE there are bizillion bookmarks in the bookmarks menu. I need to send them someplace (or gather them into a NEW folder, so that I can add newly created bookmarks and be all neat and organized.
How do I put the "bookmarks menu" that shows on the sidebar back under "bookmarks" ???
How do I get the bizillion bookmarks off of "bookmarks menu"? Is there a "select all", then "delete"? I don't want to lose the ones in the html folder on the desktop.
I am happy with them being in an html folder on my desktop. Should I change the name of the html link to XYZ.html?
I just do not understand how the sidebar can look perfect but the menu bar doesn't.
Help, please !
