Bookmark Spacing

Why did you choose to waste desktop space with so much white space between Bookmarks? I use Firefox because the bookmarks can be arranged on the left pane and I can quickly access hundreds of frequently visited web sites without having to use the scroll bar.

I have been designing user interfaces for over 25 years and cannot understand the reason for this. It is not any easier to read and much less productive and more time consuming. To be as productive as I was with the older versions, I need twice as much vertical space. The Bookmark setup was the biggest advantage to Firefox and why we were using it.

I am also extremely disappointed that you did away with the colors for folders. The empty white outline makes it more difficult to read. If the Folders were colored and the white space was eliminated, we could fit twice as many bookmarks and with much improved readability.

It is not cool or fancy or trendy - it is much worse than the older interface.

I agree. For bookmarks spacing you could try compact mode. For bookmark folder colour, css code is available if you want to create a userChrome.css file. Such code is also available for spacing if you don't want to use compact mode. Remove the blank space in the second link.

I followed this procedure and it had no effect. Bookmarks still have enough space between them for an entire bookmark entry - they are double-spaced. I get 35 lines and there is room for 80. Why? I have to scroll constantly, we were able to fit all of what we need on one screen previously. You probably think it is no big deal, it is just a few extra seconds? Suppose it takes 7 extra seconds 25 times per person per day and you organization has 1000 people. (7/60)*25*1000 = 2916 Minutes = 48.61 hours per day. Over a year that is 12,639 Hours or 6 Man-years. So you need 1006 people to be as productive as 1000 people used to be. While you need some white space to be able to differentiate between entries, you don't need to double space and really should support the compact mode which does not seem to work.

I use code in a userChrome.css file to reduce menu spacing. If you want to consider that, look at the following link (you will have to remove the blank space).
