How do I find my bookmarked folder? My hand jerked and the folder disappeared and is not in other folders but is still somewhere.

Posted

My hand jerked as I clicked on a folder in the bookmarks menu. The folder disappeared. I looked in all other folders and searched for bookmarked websites in the folder. They were listed in show all bookmarks. I opened some and clicked on the "edit this website" and it showed they were still in that folder. But I can't find the folder. In Show All Bookmarks it doesn't show the location of listed bookmarks. Help.

If you open a bookmark in a tab and click the highlighted star then if you open the Folder list with the rightmost down pointing arrow (i.e. not the one in the Folder field, but the one at the right of the folder field) then this folder should be selected and you can see where the folder is located in the tree. Drag the scroll bar until you see the folder selected and do not click in the tree area.

Note that you can use "Organize -> Undo" (Ctrl+Z) in the Bookmarks Manager (Library) to undo all actions done in the current session as long as you haven't closed Firefox when you notice such a mistake.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I hadn't closed Firefox and went to Organize and did the undo. It came right back. Thank you!
