How do I update bookmarks?

Posted

I don't know if this is a problem or a functionality request, but here goes: If the URL of a bookmarked page changes (e g due to site restructuring) I would like to be able to add the new bookmark in such a way that it replaces the old one, rather than getting added beside it. This is done in IE - if I add a bookmark with an already excisting name, I get a dialogue box asking me if I want to replace it. This doesn't seem to be the case in FF, though. So, is there some way to turn on his functionality (or a plug-in to add it), or will I just have to go ask the developers and hope they will consider it in the future?

Chosen solution

Go to Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks That should open the library window. In the Library window, select the bookmark you want to update, and manually edit the Location field.

The Update Bookmark extension might help as well. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/689/

Well, yes, I knew it could be done manually (or by adding the new bookmark and deleting the old, which would likely be quicker), but I was hoping for something simpler. And Update Bookmark seems to be it - thanks!  :)
