How can I bookmark the same site more than once?

I have a large number of bookmarks, organized into many folders.

Sometimes I want two copies of the same bookmark, in different folders. But Firefox 3 does not seem to permit this. If the bookmark already exists, in _any_ folder, adding it to a different folder deletes the earlier copy.

REPRO: Go to a page with a fixed URL. Choose "Bookmark This Page", select FolderA in your bookmark folders, and press Done. Now choose "Bookmark This Page" again, and this time choose FolderB. EXPECTED RESULT: The page in question should now appear in both FolderA and FolderB. ACTUAL RESULT: The page is in FolderB, but _not_ in FolderA.

Is there any way to avoid this? I use folders to save myself a lot of time. For example, when I need to work on a paper for one of my classes, I go to the appropriate bookmark folder and choose "Open All in Tabs". When I want to work on a different class, I go to a different folder and choose "Open All in Tabs." But I am unfortunately prevented from placing a site in both folders!

You can do a Copy & Paste in the Bookmarks Manager (Shift+Ctrl+B) to create a copy of a bookmark.

You can also drag the (fav)icon in the location bar to a folder in the Bookmarks menu drop down list or to a folder in the side bar (Ctrl+B) or to the Bookmarks Toolbar.

In the side bar you need to click to the left of the icon to prevent Firefox from opening the bookmark.


White Alice0775 also comes to the rescue with this extension:

Thanks. I tested it, and found that I can create a bookmark in FolderA, and them manually copy it to FolderB, FolderC, and FolderD.

Once that is done, I tried the old method of "Bookmarks" --> "Bookmark This Page" and added it to FolderE. When I did that, it deleted the copy in FolderD but left the other three alone!

This is fine with me. I personally think this is a bug, because I don't think that Firefox should ever delete a bookmark without asking me (or at least, informing me). But now that I understand the algorithm, I can work around it. Thanks!

White Alice0775's add-on is great! I wonder if the Mozilla programmers get lazy about fixing bugs, since they know that people like White Alice will invent add-ons to fix them? Thanks for the tip.
