Can I alphabetize my bookmarks?

Posted

I would like to alphabetize my long list of bookmarks to make finding the one I am looking for easier. Can I do this? If so, how?

Hi RIG1231, Sorry, but not something that is built in to Firefox, but there are methods that may help.

Firefox will temporarily sort them in to alpha order. You can make that permanent for a folder by copying using drag and drop whilst sorted. A better solution may be to use an addon

An alternative is simply to use existing tagging and searching facilities

You can sort the bookmarks by name in the Bookmarks Manager (Library) via the right-click context menu of a folder (this won't work on individual bookmarks).
