I went from 3.6 to 7 tonight. My bookmarks menu barely covered half my screen. Now I have to scroll through my bookmarks because of the massive folders next to the text. Possibly some other spacing stuff. Anyway, I don't want to have to scroll through my bookmarks so how do I get rid of all that extra space or shrink the font?

That can be caused by having some bookmarks with a long title in the main Bookmarks menu.
The width of a column in the Bookmarks menu list is in current Firefox versions automatically adjusted to fit the bookmark with the longest name.

You can check the names of the bookmarks in the Bookmarks Manager and make the longer ones shorter.

It's not the width that's the problem, it's the length of the menu that has grown to astronomical proportions.

Do you mean the Bookmarks Toolbar or the bookmarks menu?

A possible cause is a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.


Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

None of the things in those articles seems to apply. Already in the default theme. Going into safe mode didn't impact the menu size.
