How do I change back to having "bookmark this page" on the top of the list and subordinate "all bookmarks" lower since I use former 100 times more than the later on a daily basis?

I create about 25 -50 new bookmarks daily for my business. So, it would seem user friendly to put that command at the top of the scroll down list. Maybe I am unique and others want to "show all bookmarks" repeatedly. I can't understand why one would need to do that more often than add multiple bookmarks on a daily basis. i look forward to your response,. Respectfully MC

You can move that item to the bottom of the Bookmarks menu just above the unsorted bookmarks with code in userChrome.css below the @namespace line.

You can use the ChromEdit Plus or Stylish extension to have easier access to the customization files.


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#organizeBookmarksSeparator { display:none!important; }
#bookmarksShowAll           { -moz-box-ordinal-group:2; }
#menu_unsortedBookmarks     { -moz-box-ordinal-group:3; }

cor-el, as you said, that solution puts the "show all bookmarks" all the way at the bottom. How do you either make "bookmark this page" first without changing the order of the other options or force "show all bookmarks" to be second instead of last, the way the menu was before?

You would have to set the -moz-box-ordinal-group:2; for all items in that list to achieve that and give #menu_bookmarkThisPage a -moz-box-ordinal-group:1 !important;
I couldn't find a selector to achieve the first, but maybe someone else knows.

Before installing a newer version of FF, I always backup the existing bookmarks.json using the library. To be sure, I also copy the entire Mozilla folder from C:\Documents and Settings\your name\Application Data\Mozilla to a safe place. Install new version, then after the browser loads, go to library & restore the bookmarks.json file. You'll have to click 'choose file' because it's the most recent. Remember, this backs up & restores everything that's in the Bookmarks menu. Since FF 6.0 changes the order of 'bookmark this page' & 'show all bookmarks' you'll also need to have a FF 4.0 bookmarks.json file containing all your stuff. I jumped from 4.0 to 6.o so I don't know how 5.0 looks.

OOPS! Update to my previous post. I use Acronis TrueImage software for creating drive images & it works without a hitch. After my previous reply I decided to restore an image that only contained FF4.0.1 & the basics from fresh install. I made a backup of bookmarks.json, then proceeded to upgrade to FF6.0. After the browser loaded, I restored the saved bookmarks.json file & to my surprise, it didn't go back to: top>bookmark this page, center>subscribe to this page, third>show all bookmarks? I've been doing this since forever with all versions up to FF6.0 Sorry, I should have double checked this before I posted a reply, I guess I was sure it would work. I've included a pic to show what it looked like before I upgraded.
