How to print bookmarks with table headings

Posted

I would like to print individual bookmark folders with the selected headings (eg. Name, Location, Most Recent Visit, etc.). One would expect Library's Organize menu include the Print item that prints the window that shows these items.

Apart from fooling around with screenshots, character recognition and alike I could find no viable alternative.

Is there an add-on organizer that does this simple chore and more?

There probably is an add-on that can do it, or an external program. I don't know of one off the top of my head.


Your Firefox identified itself to the forum as version 57. An update is available: this article describes how to get Firefox 64 using the "About Firefox" dialog on the help menu: Update Firefox to the latest release.

If something is holding you back from upgrading to Firefox 64, please let us know so we can suggest solutions or workarounds. Version 57 is not secure; Mozilla discloses security flaws after each new release.

Sometimes Firefox reports the wrong version because that information was saved in a preferences file. If the "About Firefox" dialog (see first article link) shows Firefox 64.0, you may need to clear out that incorrect information. See: How to reset the default user agent on Firefox.

Went through all 605 bookmark related add-ons to no avail. BTW, the linked illustrates what I wanted to print (contents of red box).

I guess this is a difficult undertaking...

Actually, yes, when I look at how extensions can read bookmarks, the Most Recent Visit needs to be looked up in history for each bookmarked URL. So that is a little complicated/inefficient.
