how do i save a bookmark in a folder that isnt shown in edit bookmark window

I imported favorites from IE. I have multiple folders in the bookmarks toolbar. When saving a bookmark by double clicking star icon the edit box pops up. There is no option to save in any of these subfolders. Example: bookmarks toolbar>from internet explorer>business How do I save a new bookmark to that particular folder? In the edit box it shows the save to "from internet explorer" option but shows none of the subfolders that I want to save it to.

This is a little difficult to explain in words, so I've attached a screen shot. The wide drop-down shows only your most recently used folders. To open the full list of folders, you need to click the little button to the right of that, with the downward pointing triangle.

Does that work for you?

By the way, you may want to move some of those imported folders up to the main menu level rather than keeping them in the Imported... folder. You can drag them around using the Library dialog (formerly known as the Bookmarks Organizer). To open that, use either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+b
  • Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks

Thanks for your reply. Am new to firefox because IE 11 is so unstable. I think I'm moving up the learning curve a bit, but it's still hit and miss...I'll practice some more...adding bookmarks in the right place seems much more cumbersome in firefox but IE 11 just isn't working for me anymore! You've been very helpful...
