Can Bookmarks sidebar be set to show in 1 tab (say far left) and have other tabs open with it NOT showing?

more options

The most efficient / effective way for me to function as a Nursing Student with tons of bookmarks to do research n "stuff" is for the bookmarks sidebar to show on the left. I can navigate to the URL I want, click it to open in a new tab, and I'm "set" except that the sidebar shows in the new tab and takes up valuable real estate.

If I close the sidebar it closes on all open tabs. Very dysfunctional.

Sorry, but the Sidebar is displayed for the window, not a particular tab. All tabs in the window will have the Sidebar open, which the user needs to close manually.

Suggestion is to open links in a new window rather than a new tab to get around that.

Or open your bookmarks from one of the other areas that display bookmarks. Such as the bookmarks menu item in the Menu Bar. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-menu-bar-firefox

Or the optional Bookmarks Menu button which is hidden by default in the Customize window. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/bookmarks-firefox#w_how-do-i-add-the-bookmarks-menu-button-to-the-toolbar
