To make matters worse, the "Show All Bookmarks" menu item does not allow you to Organize Bookmarks. In particular, the menu Item under Bookmarks labelled "Show All Bookmarks" itself cannot be moved and appears in a random location in the middle of my personal bookmark list I generated. In addition, the menu item "Bookmark this page" cannot be moved to the top of the list, which is where I would like to put the badly renamed "Show All Bookmarks" menu item.

First order of business Firefox: Restore the original name "Organize Bookmarks"

Chosen solution

Are you using an extension (which?) to move those menu items?

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

Thanks Cor-el. The problem disappeared following installation of Firefox v.8 and a reboot. Show all Bookmarks and Bookmark this Page are back at the top where they belong. Coincidence or not.

FF still hasn't fixed the inappropriately named and semantically empty "Show All Bookmarks" label, and I suspect they never will.

Hi, in previous Firtefox (ver. 3.6) was option "Bookmark all pages/tabs", where is it now, in firefox 8.0?

Baltas:

Here is what my Bookmarks menu looks like now with FF v8.0. The top two are where I want them, even though Firefox refuses to change the "Show All Bookmarks" name back to something that actually indicates utility, i.e., "Organize Bookmarks":

"Show All Bookmarks" "Bookmark this Page" "Boomark toolbars"

<Then a list of my own personal bookmark folders>

"Get Bookmark Add-ons" "Unsorted Bookmarks"

I never use Bookmark toolbars and can't imagine what use they might be. I don't use Bookmark Add-ons (with rare exceptions - like things that might reduce pop-ups) I stuffed leftovers like "Most recent . . . this, " Most recent . . . that" into the "Unsorted Bookmarks" item and never refer to it.

"Bookmark all pages/tabs" doesn't appear anywhere I see it, and I can't remember back to FF 3.6.

You should ask Cor-el. He is more knowedgable on FF technical details than I am.

Some menu entries in the main menu bar are hidden if you use the mouse and only appear if you use the keyboard to open the menu (Bug 626825).

You can see the difference if you use Alt+F to open the File menu or other menus like the Edit menu (Alt+E) and Bookmarks menu (Alt+B) and compare that to what you see if you use the mouse to open the menu after you have made the menu bar visible by tapping Alt or by pressing F10.

  • "Bookmark All Tabs" (Shift+Ctrl+D) no longer shows in the Bookmarks menu unless you open the Bookmarks menu via the keyboard (Alt + B).
  • "Bookmark All Tabs" can be accessed via the right-click context menu of a tab on the tab bar.
  • "Bookmark This Page" can be accessed via the right-click context menu of that browser page.
