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.

Or the optional Bookmarks Menu button which is hidden by default in the Customize window.
