The bookmark manager is good but not as good as the other browsers. To create a Folder one has to open the bookmark manager then create a new folder and then bookmarks them. apart from that just clicking on the bookmark star next to the address bar put the bookmark into default place. There should be a popup that should confirm the location of the bookmark and give an option to create a new folder where a user can put his bookmark. This makes it easier for a user to manage his bookmarks rather than scrolling through a long list.

  • Clicking the star in the location bar will bookmark the page in the "Unsorted Bookmarks" folder and the star turns yellow (blue on Mac) to show that.
  • Bookmarks > "Bookmark This Page" (Ctrl+D) will bookmark the page in the Bookmarks Menu folder (you need to confirm that).
  • In Firefox 4 "Bookmark This Page" can be accessed via the right-click context menu of that browser page or by using the keyboard (Alt+B) to open the bookmarks menu.
  • If the URL in the location bar is bookmarked (star at the right end side is yellow/blue) then click the highlighted star or use "Bookmark This Page" (Ctrl+D) to edit the properties of the bookmark (name, location) and move it to another folder or remove the bookmark.
  • Click the star at the right end side of the location bar once to bookmark the current site and click the highlighted star a second time to open the "Edit This Bookmark" window and move the bookmark to another folder or edit the name.
  • Click the Remove button in the "Edit This Bookmark" window to remove a bookmark.
  • Click the arrow at the far right of the Folder field in the "Edit This Bookmark" window to access the complete folder list. That full folder list also opens if you click the drop marker in the Folder field and select the "Choose" item. That window also has a button to create a "New Folder" (look for a button with "New Folder" or a "+" under the folder list).
  • Use the "Edit This Bookmark" window to locate a bookmarked link (bookmarks have a yellow/blue star) from the location bar drop down list. Do that in Offline mode ("File > Work Offline") to avoid the link from opening.

Hi Cor-el

This is exactly what i meant. You have to first put in in unsorted and then edit bookmarks or the manager to sort it as per your requirements. This can be made simpler as in chrome.
