How do I remove a bookmark separator?


I want to sort my bookmarks alpahbetically. When I do this it is successfull except for the items that are below bookmark separators. How do I remove these so that all of my bookmarks can be sorted alpahabetically in one group?

Many thanks

You can remove separators in the right pane in the Library (Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks).

And where the heck is "the right pane in the Library" ? Where is the Library itself ?

Don't try going to the link mentioned : If you are a computer expert you might be able to understand if, but otherwise good luck.

Is there someone who can give us instructions that a lay person can follow ? My Bookmarks are loaded with separators I would love to be able to delete.

In current Firefox versions use Firefox > Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks
