Sort bookmarks alphabetically

When I right-click on a bookmark in a bookmark folder, I am not presented with a way to sort the bookmarks. I am used to IE where there is an option to sort the links (or folders within a folder) alphabetically with just one click.

Re: Sort bookmarks alphabetically

hello soundprodj, when you right-click a folder instead, there should be an option to sort the contained bookmarks by name...

Re: Sort bookmarks alphabetically

Thank you. After weeks of not seeing what to click, I finally saw it and it was there all the time. Buried halfway down the list of websites was,

'Bookmarks Menu', so I right clicked on it and there was 'Sort by name'.  So all my firefox bookmarked are now in alpha order.

My "Sort By Name" Option is Grayed Out, and not active. Now What?

Re: Sort bookmarks alphabetically

"Sort By Name" is only enabled if you right-click a folder and not if you right-click a bookmark.

Dezzie, I don't know about 'Sort By Name' grayed out in this case. But with my new printer menu I needed to click something that was grayed out and it became un -gray when I did things a different way or 'correct' way. bill72

Cor-el Thank you. I already stumbled over the correct way thank you. Also, funny, for years had trouble comparing equivalent to old office of filing cabinet, manila folders etc. Just realised the heading to bookmarks has brown square which is a picture of a folder. bill72
