Bookmarks pull down menu setup

Hey folks. Just acquired a new Macbook pro and, of course, loaded my fav browser FF (84.0.1). My older mac also has 84... installed. My bookmarks menu on the old machine drops down with one click on "Bookmarks" in the tool bar. I can't replicate that with the new Mac. It takes a second click on "Show all Bookmarks" in the drop down. Granted there are far bigger problems in the world but this one little convenience is nice to have. Anyone help?

The difference is probably where you saved the bookmarks. If the bookmarks are in the Bookmarks Menu folder then you see them directly in the Bookmarks menu drop-down list, otherwise they might be in the Other Bookmarks or Bookmarks Toolbar folder.

Did you check the Bookmarks Toolbar folder and the Other Bookmarks folder in the bookmarks menu ?

You can add the "Bookmarks Menu" button that shows the bookmarks in a drop-down list to the Navigation Toolbar via these steps:

  • click the bookshelf 57 library icon icon on the Navigation Toolbar or alternatively use the Library menu in the "3-bar" Firefox menu button New Fx Menu drop-down list
  • click Bookmarks
  • click "Bookmarking Tools", then click "Add Bookmarks Menu to Toolbar"
The Bookmark Menu button Bookmark Menu icon (star on tray) should appear on the Navigation Toolbar.

You can also drag the Bookmarks Menu button from the Customize palette to the Navigation Toolbar
