Hello, I have several folders on my firefox toolbar which I use to sort new bookmarks by topic. If I add a new bookmark to a folder it is alwas placed at the bottom (below existing bookmarks) which is somewhat annoying with a increasing number of bookmarks. I would like to have the bookmarks recently added at the top of the folder (above existing bookmarks).

It's no problem to sort them this way within the library. But back at the toolbar everthing remains the same. The only option that seems to work here ist 'sort by name'.

Is there any way to sort the bookmarks by 'date added' such that new bookmarks are placed on top and this is applied also outside the library?

I hope you get my problem! Thanks!

I do not think there is a way to do that without add-ons

There are a couple of workarounds I am aware of

  • Add the bookmarks manually in the bookmarks library and choose the position. That is using Show all bookmarks -> open required folder -> select a position and right click -> add new bookmark
    Rather a slow and clumsy process
  • Sort a folder and copy it. If you sort the folder contents then copy and paste them they remain in that order when pasted.

There are add-ons but I have not tried them. For example

There will be others available and take note of the advice to backup bookmarks manaully.

Thanks a lot for your fast and detailed reply!

I haven been suspecting that there would be no perfect solution. The auto-sort-bookmark add-on is able to sort them the way I want but does also change several things I actually prefer unchanged.

I'll try to figure out, what is best for me - using the add-on or keeping everything as it is.

Thank you!

The Views menu in the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks) is for viewing the bookmarks in a different sorting order (hence the name Views) and doesn't sort bookmarks permanently. Clicking the column header does the same sorting for viewing purposes only. If you want to sort bookmarks then you need to right-click a folder and use "Sort By Name" to sort that folder. You can't right-click individual bookmarks to sort them, only folders can be sorted this way.
