How to display bookmarks toolbar on drop down bookmarks menu
So switched over to firefox from chrome recently and one feature I really liked on chrome was the fact that bookmarks that appeared on the browser toolbar also appeared on the drop down menu: both were mirrored. Unfortunately, these appear to be two distinct bookmark sections on firefox. See the attached photo: the horizontal bookmarks toolbar displays different bookmarks than the drop down bookmarks menu. Is there any way to make the two mirror each other without duplicating bookmarks?
Fair enough. Appreciate your help anyway.Read this answer in context 👍 0

In the Bookmarks menu you only see bookmarks stored in the Bookmarks Menu folder. Bookmarks in the Bookmarks Toolbar folder can be found if you expands this folder and shown in the screenshot. The same for bookmarks stored in the Other Bookmarks folder.
You can drag the Bookmarks Menu button that shows the bookmarks in a drop-down list from the Customize palette to the Navigation Toolbar. This Bookmarks Menu button has a "View bookmarks sidebar" menu item.
See "How do I add the Bookmarks Menu button to the toolbar?"
I'm tracking the bookmarks menu and the bookmarks toolbar are separate Firefox features. What I'd like to know is whether or not it's possible to click the "bookmarks" button shown at the very top of the screenshot and view the bookmarks toolbar instead of the bookmarks menu. Since it functioned this way in chrome, I assumed this was a browser feature. Is there any way I can adjust my settings so that when I click the top button labeled "bookmarks" on my computer it displays the bookmarks toolbar instead?
No, that isn't possible. You will always see the Bookmarks Menu folder when you open the bookmarks via the Bookmarks ,menu or the above mentioned Bookmarks Menu button.
Fair enough. Appreciate your help anyway.
