multiple instances of bookmark library

Posted

When you "show all bookmarks" in Firefox a "library" window pops up. If you ever try to sort a huge amount of bookmarks you would appreciate having multiple "library" windows open.

Is there an extension that allows you to have multiple "library" windows open and/or a bookmark manager that would functionally be comparable.

I'm not sure if all code is fully re-entrant, so use with care to avoid database corruption with opening multiple Library windows and avoid doing complicated actions in more that one window.
