Is it possible to move "show all bookmarks" in the bookmark-menu to the top?

Posted

Hello,

I recently updated firefox to version 29. since then the "show all bookmarks" button is at the very bottom of all of my bookmarks - before, it was at the top. This means i have to scroll through all of them to get to my library - which is very annoying at over 1000 bookmarks. Is there a way to get it back to the top?

Hi blauerklaus01,

Not sure if you can do that. But you can access the "Show All Bookmarks" button from the Firefox top menu. Just click on Bookmarks and the button should be there.

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

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

/* move the "Show All Bookmarks" item to the top of the Bookmarks drop-down list */
#BMB_bookmarksPopup #BMB_bookmarksShowAll {-moz-box-ordinal-group:0}

/* move the "Show All History" item to the top of the History drop-down list */
#PanelUI-historyMore {-moz-box-ordinal-group:0}

The customization files userChrome.css (user interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the Firefox profile folder.

Regarding the chrome/userChrome.css ...just an additional note ... This folder and file does not seem to exist by default. I had to manually create a "chrome" folder under <firefox install dir>/Data/profile/. In that I manually created the userChrome.css and then pasted the lines from above response by cor-el:


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
#BMB_bookmarksPopup #BMB_bookmarksShowAll {-moz-box-ordinal-group:0}

Save the file and restart firefox and then I could see "Show all bookmarks" at the top. No need to enable the main menu toolbar now to get to this or type "Shift+ctrl+B".

Pressing (Control + Shift + B) is a easier way to open the bookmark library in FF29.
