How do I get bookmarks to display on left side of screen


I would like to get the bookmark section back on the left side of the screen which is a much more convenient spot for my application. It appears mozilla has discontinued this, why? The bookmark saving is cumbersome at best. It makes no sense to remove things that work for something that is not necessarily better.

Additional System Details


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0

Load an older version of Firefox such as 3.5.19. That one displays the bookmarks correctly. New versions show the second level on the far right side of the screen.
