Why can't Bookmarks be renamed after they're created?

Posted

Can this be done in Firefox? I know in Microsoft Edge bookmarks can be renamed.

Doesn’t work that way. There is no Rename in the dropdown menu. I just noticed if you select "Properties" you can rename from there though.

Yes, Properties gives access to name, address, tags, and keyword.

If you need to do a lot of renaming, the drop-down menu can be annoying. You could open the Bookmarks Sidebar temporarily using either:

  • Ctrl+b
  • Sidebars toolbar button
  • "3-bar" menu button > Library > Bookmarks > Bookmarking Tools > View Bookmarks Sidebar

When I right click on a bookmark nothing happens. Also I don't see how to open the sidebar. I have done these things on Safari but they do not seem to work on Firefox. Also there are no answers when using Firefox help at the top of the screen.

Hi jerick581, Since it appears that you are having more complicated issues, It might be better for you to post a new question. Please include your detailed information for us to better help you.


You can also edit the Name field of a bookmark in the Bookmarks Library window:

-- Ctrl+Shift+B -- "3-bar" menu button > Library > Bookmarks > at the bottom of the dropdown > Show All Bookmarks
