Hi everyone,

I have lots of bookmarks folders embedded in the bookmark tab. Sometimes I need to open some bookmarked sites under these folders. While hovering the mouse on the drop-down menu of the main bookmark folder it is ok to find bookmarked sites. However, when traveling subfolder under the main bookmark folder which is embedded in tab menu, while hovering the mouse through the drop-down menu of the subfolder, the drop-down menu closes suddenly. Or when I click a bookmark the drop-down menu behaves in the same way. It is frustrating for me. After I click a bookmark, I want the drop-down menu to stay as it is on the screen not close automatically. Is there any way to stabilize or pin drop-down menus of bookmark folders? I searched on net but I found neither a method nor an add-on for it. Thanks in advance.
