i'm trying to sort my bookmarks by name, in the directions it says open the sidebar bookmarks and right click the bookmark and choose sort by name. well when i right click a folder like "unsorted bookmarks" it does have the sort by name option. but when i right click a certain bookmark it does not have that option to sort by name, as it says it should per the instructionsx.

In Firefox the option to sort bookmarks is only available for folders and not for individual bookmarks.
Easiest to sort by name is to do that in the left pane of the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks) and right-click the folder that you want to sort.
The bookmarks are sorted between separators and if you have folders and normal bookmarks then drag the folders to the top in the right pane and (temporarily) put a separator between the folders and the bookmarks.
You can do the same in the Bookmarks side bar (Ctrl+B).
