None of those suggestions put the existing IE11 Favorites Bar items on the Firefox Bookmarks Menu Bar. I would like to set up Firefox to display items as close as possible as IE11 did.

Thanks

Firefox is not IE so it will not look like IE, It will never nor has it done anything like IE even when it was Netscape a browser before IE. So sorry you have 4 choices you can make that are Firefox's.

I looked through many pages of the supplied links but found nothing that puts the IE11 Favorites on the Firefox Bookmarks Bar as I was wanting to do in Firefox.

In IE11, the Favorites Bar folder items in the Favorites Sidebar is placed on the Favorites Bar across near the top of the screen which makes it very easy to navigate to a Favorite.

Doesn't Firefox allow the same operation? I feel it's hard to beat the IE11 interface as for usability but the program has gotten buggy and Microsoft I'm told will not update it.

Hi, No there is nothing exactly like Favourites. As mentioned you can Turn on the Toolbar which is then 1 click at the top left and another for all bookmarks and history.

Bookmarks Toolbar is below the Address Bar and you can drag and drop bookmarks to it for fast access and can make folders fro groups of things.

You can go into Customize and drag out the Library

Or/and Drag out the Star with a Pan Under it for more control as it has bookmarks Side Bar in it.

Firefox is following in Netscape's shoes some what it is a Different browser than Microsoft or Mac or Googles or the others that are based on Firefox code.
