In Bookmarks, I Accidently Dropped Folder #1 Into Folder #2, and Now I Can't Retreive Folder #1

Posted

I'm new to Firefox, so I'm still working on the features I want. I got into Bookmarks today, and went into the folder with the Favorites (imported from IE11) to pull out some Favorites in it to place in the FF Bookmarks file. Please don't tell me this can't be done, I've already done it to about 2 dozen IE Favs.

Anyway, I accidentally dropped My Internet Explorer folder into my Music folder, and now I can't retrieve it. When I highlight the Music folder and the contents in it show up at the right, the Internet Explorer if part of the contents, but I can't grab it and move it out of the Music folder. I've included a screenshot.

What can I do to get the Internet Explorer folder out of the Music folder, please and thank you?

Hi, you should be able to drag it out. Try opening the Library, by clicking on Show All Bookmarks, and see if you can do it in there. You could also right click the folder > Cut, then Paste it into the correct destination - Bookmarks in Firefox.

If you haven't closed Firefox yet then try the Undo command (Organize -> Undo; Ctrl+Z) in the Bookmarks Manager (Library).

This import from IE might be a special folder.

What items are enabled when you right-click this folder in the Bookmarks Manager (Library)?

@Scribe.......thank you so much for your time and expertise. I do appreciate it. I was trying to move folder #1 out of folder #2 when in the Bookmarks drop down setting, not in what you call the Library.

I just need to learn how this all works, that's all, and I appreciate you offering up your time to help those of us who don't know how Firefox works.

@cor-el, Yes, of course I had already closed FireFox, but I did go look at the options you outlined, and the more I learn the easier it will get. Thank you for you help and time.
