How do I move my bookmarks to a left-handed sidebar?

How do I move my bookmarks to a left-handed sidebar? The instructions said to go to "view", find "bookmarks" and click on "sidebar". I have no "view" at the top of my Mozilla Firefox page. I had a bookmark sidebar before but it was lost when I tried to alphabetize them. I have recovered the bookmarks but have found no way to move it to the sidebar. Please provide instructions.

Re: How do I move my bookmarks to a left-handed sidebar?

Press F10 or press and hold the Alt key down to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily.

You can open the Bookmarks in the sidebar via View > Sidebar > Bookmarks (Ctrl+B)
You can open the History in the sidebar via View > Sidebar > History (Ctrl+H)
You can find toolbar buttons to open the bookmarks and the history in the sidebar in the toolbar palette and drag them on a toolbar.


For users with Firefox 4:

Firefox 4 has two bookmark buttons with a star in the Customize window.
One star button has a drop marker that open a Bookmark menu.
The other star button without the drop marker opens the bookmarks in the sidebar.
