When I click on the LSC bookmark icon in my toolbar, this website opens in the left hand sidebar of my computer's screen. This sidebar WILL NOT CLOSE when I try to access any other website. That is really annoying.

This is a new problem and just started today. 9/14/2015. I am adding a screen capture of this annoying problem. Sure hope you can help me.

Opening in the sidebar is the default for bookmarks that are created via a link or button on a website. You can check the properties of a bookmark via the right-click context menu in the sidebar (Ctrl+B; Command+B on Mac). In the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks) you can click the More button in the Detail pane at the bottom right. Make sure that "Load this bookmark in the sidebar" is not selected.

To open the Bookmarks Manager, press the Alt or F10 key bring up the tool bar, and select Bookmarks. Hot key is <Control>(Mac:<Command>) <Shift> B. At the top of the screen is a search bar.

Click once on the bookmark. Now follow the pictures (bellow).
