Missing "Bookmark All Tabs…" feature which was in previous versions of FireFox 3.x. If you right-mouse click on a neutral part of the Browser window, there would be choice of "Bookmark this page" or "Bookmark All Tabs…". I have been unable to find it either in the sub-menu or the BOOKMARK selection from the Menu Bar.

If you right-click on a tab you get the "Bookmark all tabs" option, or you can use keyboard shortcut Control=Shift+D

The Bookmark All Tabs... has been moved to the "Tabs" Sub-Menu.

What do you mean by Tabs sub-menu is it right-clicking on a tab ? I know that "ctrl-shift-D" still work. I know that a right-click on a tab gives the "Bookmark all Tabs" function.

But I would like to see it back in the Bookmarks menu. (which is its logical place)

Because today the choice only disappeared from the menu as it is still reachable through keyboard shortcut or through mouse right-click on a tab but tomorrow it will totally disappear and personally I don't want that as this is one of my favorite functionality.

Tank you for your understanding !

Right click on the X in the Tab to get the correct drop down menu.

i totally understand what you mean it SUCKS BIG i can't describe how Firefox 4 has made me feel so unconformable other then its speed i prefer the functionality of firefox 3 dam even when i try to reload a page by right click the tab and reload i hit that stupid pin app and my page goes AWOL and i have to drag it back in place again

why can't firfox stay simple its know to be way easier but anyway im starting to rant and i am sorry you have done an awesome job just some specs don't meet my needs as a long user of FF.

See /questions/799856#answer-155765

Some menu entries are hidden by default and only appear if you use the keyboard to open the menu.

"Bookmark All Tabs" and "Bookmark All Tabs" in the Bookmarks menu are among them.

You can see the difference if you use Alt+F or Alt+B to the File and Bookmarks menu 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 pressing Alt or by pressing F10.


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

Placing a link to "bookmark ALL tabs" under a single tab strikes me as anti-logical. Perhaps I am simply deeply flawed in terms of logical thinking skills (something my friends, imaginary though they may be, would likely agree with), but when i want to do something with a SINGLE tab, I think of clicking on a SINGLE tab. When I want to do something with ALL tabs, I look for a global menu.

I'm sure there will be a kludge way to rectify this design issue through a plug-in of some sort, but I hope the (glorious and thoroughly appreciated volunteers in the) design community will consider the position of many of us lowly users that the current setup is not obvious nor particularly logical. I find the placement of "bookmark THIS page" on the global bookmarks menu far less obvious that a "bookmark ALL tabs" option would be.

You won't find it anymore in the next major Firefox version in the tab context menu.
