how can I sort the bookmarks menu? Sorting only works in "organize bookmarks", doesn't apply to the menu.

I want my bookmarks to be listed alphabetically. I can select "sort by name" or "sort A-Z" under the Organize Bookmarks tab, but my choice applies to the Organize Bookmarks list only; when I open my Bookmarks menu, it remains unsorted. How can I apply my sorting preference to the actual Bookmarks list?

The suggested article doesn't help with a Mac Pro laptop. And most of my bookmarks are not in folders; I want to sort every entry in the Bookmarks menu alphabetically. It seems logical to use the Organize Bookmarks tool to make this sort, but it doesn't stick.

The Views menu in the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks) is for displaying the bookmarks in different sorting orders (hence the name Views) and doesn't sort bookmarks permanently.

Right-click a folder to open the context menu and choose "Sort By Name" in the left pane of the Bookmarks Manager or in the side bar to sort the bookmarks alphabetically or drag bookmarks to the wanted position. If dragging doesn't work then use Cut and Paste instead.

You may have to close (Firefox> Quit) and restart Firefox to make changes appear in the Bookmarks menu because on Mac that menu is maintained by the OS and not by Firefox.
