Hi All!

Greetings and thanks for the best browser in the world!

In the past when I opened the Bookmarks, it opened at the top, "All Bookmarks".

This was the default for decades.

Now, since around update 98.0(?) it opens at the bottom, "Other Bookmarks" and there is no way for me to change it.

I had hoped the Devs would fix it, but the last two minor updates have not.

How do I fix this? Is there a way for me to tweak the "about:config" settings to get it back where it belongs?

Regards,

Mike. P.S. I'm running Firefox 98.0.2 on a Win 7 Desktop and a win 10 Laptop. The issue is the same on both.

Hi terry21,

Many thanks for the fast reply.

I'll post my comments in the thread you noted.

Mike. P.S. Darn shame my previous searches did not expose that thread to me.
