I recently updated from a very early version of FF to 13.0.1 and the bookmark all tabs in the Bookmarks menu is gone. I always use that function so i desperately need it.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Chosen solution

Some menu entries in the main menu bar are hidden if you use the mouse and only appear if you use the keyboard to open the menu (Bug 626825).

You can see the difference if you use Alt+F to open the File menu or other menus like the Edit menu (Alt+E) and Bookmarks menu (Alt+B) and compare that to what you see if you use the mouse to open the menu after you have made the menu bar visible by tapping Alt or by pressing F10.

  • "Bookmark All Tabs" (Shift+Ctrl+D) no longer shows in the Bookmarks menu unless you open the Bookmarks menu via the keyboard (Alt + B).
  • "Bookmark All Tabs" can be accessed via the right-click context menu of a tab on the tab bar.
  • "Bookmark This Page" can be accessed via the right-click context menu of that browser page.

You can have it back in the Bookmarks menu.

You can read in this reply ([/questions/799856#answer-155765]) about how to do this by adding code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the user profile folder.


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

/* Always show all hidden menu entries */
#navigator-toolbox menuitem[class="show-only-for-keyboard"] { display:-moz-box !important; }

The "Bookmark All Tabs Function" didn't dissapear. It was... NEEDLESSLY REMOVED by some very unwise and unthinking individuals.

There is No RATIONAL Reason to do away with a highly useful function that MILLIONS of Firefox users ALREADY Knew How to Find, and WERE ALREADY USING, without ever having to think about it. !

Anyone New to Firefox will (logically) look under "Bookmarks "on the "Menu Bar " for... Things that Relate to Bookmarks. This ORIGINAL Layout was... Simple, Logical, Obvious, Intuitive, and Easy to Find !

Switching to Control+Shift+D is... NOT Simple, or Logical, or Obvious, or Intuitive. AND, I had to... WASTE CONSIDERABLE TIME trying to Find how to get the functionally that was in Firefox... From The Beginning, and Used By Millions of Users.

I trade stocks online (daily) and I USE a "Screen Capture" app Multiple Times a Day, Which ALSO USES Control+Shift+D to make a Screen Capture. So, when I Need to Save Multiple Tabs, I now have to shut the screen capture app down, do the Control+Shift+D, and then open the screen capture app again.

All of this because the people at Firefox have become Downright COMPULSIVE about FORCING... NEEDLESS, CONFUSING, Un-Thinking, Mindless, and Destructive changes to the Layout and Functionality of the platform that causes MILLIONS of Users to... WASTE MILLIONS of MAN Hours to try to figure out how to use something that... They Already Knew How to Use !

In searching for a solution to this Needless Problem, I ran across a forum where people were Needlessly searching for a solution to this Man Made Problem, the "Moderator" gives the Control+Shift+D "Solution", Offers No Rational for the Needless Change, and then gos on to say that He Will Be GLAD when this functionality is... REMOVED COMPLETELY !

I assume that the management at Firefox would like to have their browser as widely accepted and used by "Enterprise" as possible. If so, this sort of un-thinking Change just for the sake of change, needs to... Stop.

I have run two national companies, and I can assure you that I would Go To Considerable Lengths to AVOID Any Software that my company would have to PAY employees to stop constructive work just to constantly Re-Learn how to use the software, not to mention Endless Updates and Bug Fixes. There can be very large sums of money involved in such Avoidable Wastes of Productivity. These are some of the reasons why companies go so long before "updating" to new Microsoft releases, whose stock has been flat for yhe last 10 years. ( and is now facing some Real Competion.)

The Firefox people are always pushing updates, which are good for security reasons, but the unending changes to the GUI and the Functionality are Not Appreciated. They are despised for very real and rational reasons.

If you will through your own forums, and do a few web searches, you will find that users around the world have gone from looking forward to Firefox updatees (in the early releases), to avoiding them like the plague, or switching to other browsers completely.

Someone once said: "If it ain't Broke, Don't Fix it."

Someone else said: "The only thing worse than Being Wrong, is... Staying Wrong."

I'm saying that if you find that you have shot yourself in the foot...

1.  Stop Shooting...  IMMEDIATELY !
2.  FIX Your Foot
3.  Take SERIOUS MEASURES to Make Certain that You DON'T...  Shoot Yourself in the Foot Again !

Give the users a Firefox that they are Comefortable With and don't have to Constantly Mess With, and you will be will on your way to wide Acceptance, and Loyalty by everyone, including the "enterprise" world.

Leave the "tweaks" alone. These can be supplied by your Ad-on community, and the users will either accept them or not. The Customer is always right.

NEVER, EVER, EVER, REMOVE a FUNCTIONALITY Unless it is a SECURITY THREAT ! You WILL Make a LOT of People Mad if you do, and you will Destroy what Loyalty that hasn't already been lost.
