How can I lock the order in which my links appear on the bookmarks bar?

Posted

I have 10 bookmarks on my bookmarks bar. After moving them around so that they are in the order I want them, I close firefox. When I reopen firefox, the bookmarks have been moved around and are not in the order I placed them.

Is there a way to lock their position on the bookmarks bar?

Bookmarks should stay where they are placed. New entries should be at the end of the current.

Places Maintenance {web link} Allows to run Maintenance tasks on the database that drives Places, the bookmarks and history module behind Firefox.

Open the Add-ons Manager. Locate the add-on and press the Options button. Select All of the tests. Then press Execute on the bottom.
