Why do I have to use bookmarks to then move the URLS into my own created folders?? Why can't I just add the URL directly to my folder?

Posted

Here is my issue, I create folders on my bar to organize my sites - I can't find a way to directly add urls to my folders. Only way I see is: I first have to bookmark the site, then go into Bookmarks, then move the site into my folder. This is a waste of time to me and inefficient. I like FireFox but with Safari I can add the site directly into my folder. Why would I want to add more steps? Am I missing something?
