Keep the bookmark dropdown menu open while middlecliking

more options

Hi everyone,

I'm struggling with my question. Last week I found a nice about:config preference to keep the personnal bar bookmark menu open while I middle click on my bookmark.

Unfortunatelly, i'm unable to find what that preference was. Every time I look for something like this I found the Stay-Open Menu extension, wich provide what I want, but the point is, I was able to do it without an extension.

Do you know which preferences it could be ?

Thank you very much

Did you check the about:config page for modified prefs (status is "user set")?

You can open the bookmarks sidebar (Ctrl+B).

I checked and didn't see a prefs that could work for my request... I'm convince that last week I found a pretty well named pref (like "keep_folder_open_middleclick") and I found it in 5 minutes on google, but so far i was unable to find it again...

To allow you to have a better understanding of what I'm looking for :

I use the personal bar for my bookmarks. So I have a bar under the URL area with folders and inside those folders, I have my bookmarks.

When I click on a folder, it's a nice drop down menu which show me the (eg. seven) bookmarks inside that folder.

I want to open, let's say, two of them in new tabs and with the middleclick like I can do on the URLs at the bottom of this page ("Contact Us", "Twitter", etc...).

If I middleclick on the first bookmark, it opens it in a new tab, but the nice drop down menu closes itself. So I need to open it again to click on my second bookmark.

What I want (I really start to think I dreamed about it) is for this dropdown menu to stay open until I click elsewhere (on one of my new tab, in the current page, etc...).

The extension "Stay-Open Menu" Link does that but I'm pretty sure I was able to do this just by changing a value in about:config from true to false or from false to true.

I hope my explication makes sense... I join a picture to explain what I'm looking for. But I think I'm going to have to stay with the extension Stay-Open Menu.

Thank you for your help anyway :)
