How do I duplicate a bookmark?

I like to record recipe bookmarks in several different folders. For example, a cookie recipe would have a bookmark in Cookies but also in Snacks. Setting a bookmark in the first folder is no problem. However when I try to set a bookmark for the same page in a second folder by clicking on the "star" symbol, the message is "Edit this bookmark"; Firefox simply moves the bookmark from the first folder to the second folder, so the bookmark that was in the first folder disappears. How do I record a duplicate bookmark for the same page in a different folder? I know it is possible to access the Library with CTRL+Shift+B, and then to copy the bookmark in the first folder and paste the bookmark in a different folder - but that seems like a crazily labour intensive process.

This isn't possible when you use the star, but you need to create a copy of the bookmark.
u can do this is various ways.
If the bookmarked page is open in a tab then you can drag the tab to a bookmarks folder.
You can also hold the Ctrl key and drag the bookmark to another folder to create a copy in this folder.

Thank you very much! I also figured out that it was easier to work with bookmarks after opening the Bookmarks Sidebar.
