there is no 'bookmarks manager on the bookmark drop down menu

the firefox help tutorial says , quote 'to open bookmark manager select Bookmarks >manage bookmarks'. It shows 'manage bookmarks' immediately below 'bookmark this page'. The drop down menu on my firefox does not have the 'manage bookmarks' instruction on the menu. I am running firefox 3.6/win vista. and I am finding it difficult to organize my bookmarks .Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: there is no 'bookmarks manager on the bookmark drop down menu

I thought it was gone also; it is now called "show all bookmarks".

Try: Going to the File Menu, click on Bookmarks, click on show all bookmarks. This should bring up the bookmark manager (ps. I've learned it's good to back them up!!).

I hope this helps.

Could you tell us what was shown in the drop down menu of your Bookmarks menu?

In Firefox 3 it is called Organize Bookmarks.

Manage Bookmarks was last used in Firefox 1.5

Where did you read that tutorial?

Re: there is no 'bookmarks manager on the bookmark drop down menu

Hello! I have no "manage bookmarks" nor "Organize Bookmarks" on Firefox 4.0.1 There are only: "bookmark this page", "subscribe to this page", "set as speed dial" and "show all bookmarks". Can anybody help me? Wow, sorry, I found it, it`s just "show all bookmarks".

In Firefox 4, "Organize Bookmarks" has been changed to "Show All Bookmarks". If I remember correctly, "Manage Bookmarks" was last used in Firefox 2.

Re: there is no 'bookmarks manager on the bookmark drop down menu

I'm not aware of any replacement for the old built-in bookmark manager. I tried using the "Old Manage Bookmarks 0.0.4" add-on (bypassing version checking using the add-on compatibility reporter add-on) with Firefox 6.0, but it had no effect (despite being enabled).

The best solution I can think of is if you use Xmarks to backup your bookmarks you can use tools -> xmarks -> myxmarks to bring up a web page that lets you organize the bookmarks. Then use tools -> xmarks -> xmarks settings -> advanced -> download to sync Firefox's copy of the bookmarks with the organized copy.
