How do I move my bookmarks to a left-handed sidebar?

Posted

How do I move my bookmarks to a left-handed sidebar? The instructions said to go to "view", find "bookmarks" and click on "sidebar". I have no "view" at the top of my Mozilla Firefox page. I had a bookmark sidebar before but it was lost when I tried to alphabetize them. I have recovered the bookmarks but have found no way to move it to the sidebar. Please provide instructions.

Chosen solution

Press F10 or press and hold the Alt key down to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily.

You can open the Bookmarks in the sidebar via View > Sidebar > Bookmarks (Ctrl+B)
You can open the History in the sidebar via View > Sidebar > History (Ctrl+H)
You can find toolbar buttons to open the bookmarks and the history in the sidebar in the toolbar palette and drag them on a toolbar.


For users with Firefox 4:

Firefox 4 has two bookmark buttons with a star in the Customize window.
One star button has a drop marker that open a Bookmark menu.
The other star button without the drop marker opens the bookmarks in the sidebar.
