can't find "Show All Bookmarks" button on Firefox 29

Posted

I can no longer locate the "Show All Bookmarks" button from the Bookmarks menu on Firefox 29. I tried looking for it in the Bookmarks Sidebar, but it's not there either. I would like to manually backup my bookmarks from time to time - is there another way to do this on Firefox 29?

Chosen solution

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the bookmark drop down menu, or press (Control + Shift + B) and the bookmark library will pop up.

I don't even understand why Firefox had to make it so difficult to open the bookmark library in FF29.

If you click on the bookmarks icon, and scroll all the way to the bottom of your bookmarks, you will see the "Show all bookmarks". Why in the world they put it at the bottom instead of the more convenient location at the top ... I can't fathom.

There are many quirks and bug in firefox 29 which makes me long for firefox 28. Apparently, there is no easy way to get back to version 28 without reinstalling all the add-ons etc.  :-( Sux !

I'm looking for the bookmarks button too. So far, I've found Hitting CTRL+B will toggle the bookmarks sidebar on and off.
